they have until next august to restart the rape investigation. assange fought not to go to sweden the organisation says it has received only half the funding because he was worried sweden needed to tackle the outbreak, would extradite him to the us. a shortfall of more now britain's considering that. than $100 million. and as the disease continues to be transmitted in healthcare settings as well as the wider community, he's obviously going to fight extradition and fight it hard. many here can only watch and wait. this case raises significant issues about free speech. we've been warning about the prospect of an extradition thousands of passengers request from the united across the world are stranded after the indian carrier jet airways suspended states since 2010. all of its international flights until next monday. after seven years inside the embassy, resolving jet is india's largest private airline and currently has more the case will mean answering some than $1 billion worth of debt. fundamental questions. isjulian assange a global campaigner who worked up a conspiracy to hack monica miller has more from delhi. secret computer systems? or is he a journalist publishing leaked information in the public interest, something the courts might be more lenient about. it is saddled in debt as you just in these modern times, said, over $1 billion. itjust can't seem to he may well be a bit of both, but this is how he described get a hold of things. last night into friday, himself to the bbc in 2010. they cancelled almost all international flights and gave their customers very little warning. we're a publisher. if you go on social media you will find desperate customers we accept information looking for answers from whistle—blowers. as to what to expect next, we vet it, we analyse and many of them have had to pay it and we publish it

has been announced to, and these pretty committed fans seem happy. they put on their best costumes to see the trailer for the rise of skywalker, at the annual star wars celebration in chicago. the film will feature previously unseen footage of carrie fisher as princess leia. this is bbc news. hello. i know all eyes are on the weekend weather, but you may recognise this forecast more in reference to next week. i'll get to that in a moment, but first let's take a look at the big weather pattern for the weekend. low pressure battling with high pressure, for dominance of the uk's weather — it is high pressure that wins but keeps us in the blue with a stronger, colder east south—easterly wind over the weekend.
5:14 am
it is high pressure, meaning most of us will stay dry, bar the odd shower. there will be some decent sunshine around but it is going to be cold for the time of year, particularly in that stronger wind. gardeners take note, frosty nights as well. many of us will start with frost again on saturday morning, away from the north sea coast and away from most westernmost areas where the wind is continuing to pick up. some gusts in northern ireland of around a0 mph. a breezy picture for some, patchy cloud will develop over parts of eastern england, especially east anglia and south—east england, you may catch a stray shower. if you do there could be some small hail associated. we have referenced the wind, average speeds but gusts will be higher, particularly in the west and especially into northern ireland, around a0 mph. for many, temperatures stuck in single figures especially on the north sea coast. for scotland, favourable wind directions with temperatures up to 1a, as we have had
5:15 am
over the past few days. clear weather overnight and into sunday but cloud increasing over the far south of england, northern ireland, and on the north sea coast with the breeze we should avoid a frost, but elsewhere we are in the blue so another frost as sunday begins. but with plenty of morning sunshine, some clouds developing. a stray shower here or there, most places will stay dry. in cornwall and northern ireland, expect cloud, the further west you are, you could see some patchy rain out of this weather front but most places will stay dry, with some cloud building during the day. temperatures similar, as is the wind, so it is feeling chilly. however, into next week, still high pressure, low pressure battling, but the orientation changing. as does the wind direction, eventually drawing some warm air from the south. although it is still high pressure and still mainly settled, it is going to feel very different.
5:16 am
all of that happens just in time for easter. temperatures next week on the up.
