messy. very rigorous in brussels thank you. the united states is celebrating the 4th of july american independence day events are usually a political but this year they are proving controversial president trump has staged a military parade through washington called salute to america tweeting that it would be the show of a lifetime forcedly inspired by france's bastille day celebrations 2 years ago is the jump is due to give an address at the lincoln memorial where martin luther king gave his i have a dream speech. straight to washington head of the humphrey joins us from the thick of the action welcome helena so a 4th of july not like no other according to the president. that's right phil the u.s. president has called it a show all of a lifetime is certainly a departure from tradition and it's not without its control this either with many

2020 campaign flags here and post this in anticipation of potentially a political speech we'll have to wait and see what the president says but if he does vote into account paid rally most in the democrats will likely also cool much of the money for this event to be paid back to the treasury say that violates a campaign financing ethics. in washington thank you. it's only a volcano erupted on tuesday killing one person and injuring others it happened on the island of stromboli north of sicily residents by surprise experts say the event was unusual because the warning signs before an eruption was not there. a carpet of ash floats on the sea around the island of stromboli small pieces of all cannick rock rained down and landed on this boat the aftermath of yesterday's eruption is clearly visible in jean austria the smaller of the island's 2 villages that at 1st
