alleged killings, disappearances and torture, is this the right place to entrust with detecting human rights are vulnerable asylum seekers, who hoped written would protect them. flying in the ministerial jet for a day trip to remind is evidence priti patel thinks the policy will prove popular with voters, even she accepts, though, there are potentially insurmountable practical and legal hurdles before it can actually happen. mark easton, bbc news, rwanda. let's get some of the day's other news. the prime minister said. his comments came after boris johnson was fined for attending a party at number ten, it is thought the prime minister could face further fines. the mp said he had no other option but to resign.

season in a row, after a hard fought 0—0 draw at atletico madrid ensured they went through 1—0 on aggeregate. ilkay gundogan could have made life much easier for pep guardiola's side, but he hit the post from close range in the first half. atletico ended the fiery game with 10 men when defender felipe was shown a second yellow card for a dangerous follow—through on phil foden. unlike their opponents, city put in a disciplined and mature performance, ensuring they'll be back in madrid to face real in the last four. joining manchester city in the semi finals are their fellow english premier league rivals liverpool. both sides could meet in the final. liverpool played out an entertaining 3—3 draw with benfica at anfield with roberto firmino scoring twice to put them 3—1 up. but the portuguese side staged a spirited fightback with darwin nunez scoring a late equaliser. jurgen klopp's side go through 6—4 on aggregate with the side that knocked out bayern munich, unai emery�*s villarreal
awaiting in the semis. they probably have the most successful manager in football, so he knows what he is doing. two different approaches, away and time, it was clear. they defended munich even more than they did at villa real. without it, it wouldn't be champions' league. a resurgent barcelona are in europa league action later on thursday. they play german side eintracht frankfurt in the second leg of their quarter—final. barca drew i—i when they played last thursday in germany. sergino dest, memphis depay and gerard pique returned to train with the squad and will be available to play after recovering from their injuries. allyson felix, the most decorated female track and field 0lympian of all time, says she'll retire at the end of the season. the 36—year—old american's
won 11 olympic medals, including seven golds, as well as 13 world titles, and competed at her fifth and final olympics in tokyo last summer. the 36—year—old announced on social media that she plans to embark on her farewell season as a thank you to the sport. carlos alcaraz says his shock exit at the monte carlo masters isn't the result of his sudden rise to fame which has seen him earmarked as a future grand slam champion and world number one. the spanish 18—year—old, seeded eight, was beaten in three sets by american sebastian korda in the second round. alcaraz had arrived on the back of winning the miami masters. however, the world number 11 was outgunned by korda in a thrilling clay court battle lasting just over three hours. alcaraz is the second big name to exit the tournament following world number one novak djokovic who lost his opener on tuesday. korda winning 7—6, 6—7, 6—3.
ididn't i didn't think about the expectation that the people has for me. yes, ijust focused on me, what i have to do. as i said, you have to play on clay—court, more matches. you can follow the monte carlo masters on the bbc sport website but from all of us here, that's all your sport for now. before we finish, i'd just like to bring you these pictures from ukraine, and a happy story. rescuers digging with their bare hands managed to pull out a puppy alive from the rubble of a building, as you can see in this video released by the donetsk regional police. the rescuers heard the puppy whining as they were picking through the rubble.
the puppy doesn't seem to be too seriously injured. he was reunited with his grateful owner who praised the rescuers for acting so quickly to find his best friend. hello there. apart from the odd shower, it does look like many places will stay dry for the run—up to easter and for many of us it will stay quite warm as well, particularly for england and wales where we will see the best of any sunshine throughout the day on thursday. we have a weak area of high pressure tending to build in across the country. that should keep these weather fronts out at bay, which will tend to threaten parts of northern ireland and scotland through the day. however, they will tend to bring thicker cloud here through the day. some spots of rain around, particularly for western scotland. elsewhere, any low cloud, mist and murk will tend to clear away, certainly inland. that allows for some good sunny spells to develop, although it could stay quite murky around the coast. and it is just an outside chance of a shower across eastern england. you'll get another warm day to come from many. 15—19 degrees, we could see 20 degrees again somewhere in the south—east.
we saw a repeat performances as we head through thursday night. showers die away and we start to see more low cloud, mist and murk rolling in to southern and western areas, in particular. i think eastern areas will see lengthier clear spells. and, again, it is going to be another mild night. so, for good friday we start off mainly dry. sunshine from the word go across eastern areas. a bit more in the way of cloud across the north and the west. perhaps an odd shower for northern ireland, wales, the south—west of england, otherwise most places dry. and it could be the warmest day of the week, good friday. we could see 21 degrees some places in the south—east, but even further north, the mid to high teens. as we head through the easter weekend, it does look like our area of high pressure could start to break down, and that may allow low pressure and weather fronts to sweep in to the north and the west through easter sunday and easter monday. so some areas in the north could be fairly wet. saturday itself doesn't look too bad. much of england and wales, again, dry with some good spells of sunshine. a bit more in the way of cloud across scotland, northern ireland, perhaps some some irish sea coast, the odd shower here. and temperatures, again,
mid to high teens for many, probably highs of 18 or 19 in at the south—east. temperatures just coming down a little bit. easter sunday at this stage could be fairly wet across parts of the north and the west for a while. more active weather fronts try to work their way eastwards. again, midlands, eastern england, southern england could stay dry. some good sunny spells and temperatures in the mid—to—high teens once again. so i think we're starting the easter weekend on a largely fine and pretty warm note, with some sunshine around, the best of it to the east. but there is an increasing chance of unsettled weather trying to push in from the north and the west for part two of easter weekend.
