sarah campbell, bbc news. in a rare prime—time television address, presidentjoe biden has called on congress to ban assault weapons. from the white house, he said that it is time to act following a string of high—profile mass shootings, and appealed to congress not to let the american people down. nomia iqbal reports from washington. as president biden walked to the podium, 56 candles burned behind him, each representing victims of gun violence in all us states and territories. is that everyday places in america were now killing fields, and enough was enough. let were now killing fields, and enough was enough. let there be no mistake _ enough was enough. let there be no mistake about _ enough was enough. let there be no mistake about the _ no mistake about the psychological trauma that gun violence leaves behind. imagine being a little girl, that brave little girl in uvalde, who smeared the blood on herface to life skill — i still among the corpses to pretend you were
deadin the corpses to pretend you were dead in order to stay alive. this comes after president biden visited uvalde in texas, and the families of the school and the families of the school and teachers murdered in their classroom. previously, he had visited matt buffalo in new york where people were shot dead last month and a supermarket. on wednesday, or people were shot at a medical centre in oklahoma. some swift action is happening. house democrats have voted for a bill of tougher gun restrictions, which would take into account many of mr biden�*s proposals. but republicans are against this move, some even brought their own guns to the meeting about the bill.— about the bill. here is a gun i carry everything _ about the bill. here is a gun i carry everything all— about the bill. here is a gun i carry everything all day - about the bill. here is a gun i carry everything all day to - carry everything all day to protect myself, my family, my wife, my home. this is ap 365. it comes with a 15 round magazine. there is a seven round magazine... . magazine. there is a seven round magazine...- magazine. there is a seven round magazine... . why gun reform is— round magazine... . why gun reform is difficult. _ round magazine... . why gun reform is difficult. senate - reform is difficult. senate republicans need to be on board any laws to be passed. they

canada's prime minister, justin trudeau, has signed a $1.3 billion land compensation deal with the siksika first nation, saying they were gathered to right a wrong of the past. in 1910, the federal government seized almost half of the tribe's ancestral lands in the province of alberta, to give to settlers. mr trudeau called the land grab dishonourable. turkey will now be known as turkiyah at the united nations after it agreed to a formal request. several international bodies will be asked to make the name change as part of a rebranding campaign launched by the turkish president erdogan last year. the un says it made the change as soon as it received the request this week. now, there's concern among some health experts that monkeypox and other infectious diseases could be transmitted to animals via human medical waste. it comes as cases of the virus surge outside of africa
where the virus is usually found. our reporter shelley phelps has more. scientists are struggling to explain the current crop of monkey box cases. they have mostly been identified in europe, which is not used to seeing the virus. according to the world health organization, more than 550 confirmed cases have been reported by at least 30 countries outside of africa where the virus is typically found. it is not the first time they have been found outside africa. nature currently is that we are seeing a large number of human to human transmission outside the countries, but also, affecting this group of population, that has not typically been seen before.
some experts also raised concerns monkeypox and other infectious diseases could be transmitted to animals via human medical waste. an opportunity for animals to tear the bags open, rodents to get in there and get infected. it's all sparking a flurry of scientific research. the european union's drug watchdog is in talks with the maker of a vaccine against deadly smallpox to extend its use to monkeypox. its vaccine head says that while the outbreak is unprecedented, it's not a public health emergency. it is actively discussing the treatment and vaccines available should they be needed, and the ema emergency task force is already activating to discuss this outbreak and possible countermeasures. countries in africa have experienced sporadic monkeypox outbreaks since the virus was first discovered in humans in1970.
in nigeria, the government has banned the sale of bushmeat as a precaution, they say, to stop the spread of monkeypox as experts say it's possible that it could be caught by eating infected meat, although this is not the most common transmission route. while the risk remains low, more cases of monkeypox are expected to be detected worldwide, and countries are being asked to increase surveillance. shelley phelps, bbc news. stay with us on bbc news. still to come, looking up: the community in the sky that could make a big difference for the people of rotterdam. the queen and her husband began their royal progress to westminster. the moment of crowning, in accordance with

the war in ukraine reaches its 100th day: president zelensky says russia's taken control of one—fifth of his country. joe biden calls for a ban on assault weapons following a string of deadly mass shootings in america. president zelensky has called for weapons deliveries to ukraine to be stepped up as he warned that russia now controls a fifth of his country. he has also met the new us ambassador to ukraine, bridget brink. she has given herfirst broadcast interview to the bbc�*sjoe inwood, who reports from kyiv. the battle for severodonetsk is not over it seems. this is how one ukrainian soldier experiences it. bodycam footage released on social media shows intense street fighting as they try to hold back the russian advance. "calm down, calm down — it's ok," he says. one of his colleagues
has been hit. they apply pressure to the wound before trying to get him to safety. it has been increasingly hard to get a clear picture of what is happening on the ground. even as the fighting rages, the region's governor knows this city may fall. translation: it's not - the battle for severodonetsk which is most important. we need to win the war. the luhansk region became the fortress to hold back a huge influx of russian forces. by holding them back, we don'tjust keep them at a distance — they lose equipment and personnel. meanwhile, we receive weapons from our partners. and it's weapons like these they're talking about — long—range rocket artillery called himars. it's thought they could change the course of this war. it's great to be in kyiv. thanks so much for coming out. they're being delivered by the united states, and today, the new american ambassador met the president, and then the media. she also gave the bbc
her first international broadcast interview. part of our goal in providing all of this security assistance is also to strengthen the ukrainians' hands at the negotiating table, so it helps create a better situation for ukraine, as they may be looking at some point to how this conflict ends. but i think it's quite remarkable, the success that the ukrainians have had. russia's invasion has triggered an expansion of nato, with finland and sweden applying tojoin the defensive alliance. could ukraine one day follow them? ultimately, ukraine will have to decide what it wants in its future, and then as is with the membership process, the leadership of nato countries then also make a decision. so i think if we're in that... would you support it? if we're in that position, i think we are in a very good position, because, right now, we've got
to help ukraine win the war. but that moment is still a long way away. cities in the path of russia's invasion are still emptying out. this was sloviansk earlier today — a key russian target. those who can, flee. those who can't face an increasingly uncertain future. joe inwood, bbc news, kyiv. let's catch up with all the latest sports news. hello. i'm tulsen tollett, and this is your sports news, where rafael nadal plays another french open semifinal later on friday. the 13—time champion at roland—garros has only lost once at this stage, and that was last year. he and alexander zverev are first up on court philippe chatrier, followed by casper ruud and marin cilic. they're down to two in the women's draw. world number one iga swiatek beat russian daria kasatkina in straight sets on thursday and is through to her second grand slam final having won this tournament in 2020. the top seeded pole has now won
3a consecutive matches. being here again, it is great, especially when i didn't know how i would play here after so many tournaments, it seemed obvious for me that this streak may come to an end soon, obvious for me that this streak may come to an end soon, so obvious for me that this streak may come to an end soon, so i wanted to take it step—by—step and i didn't have any exact goals on this tournament, and just seeing how my game is developing every match, it is something giving me a lot of hope. i am just proud of myself. swiatek will face 18—year—old american coco gauff in the final after she eased past unseeded italian martina trevisan for a 6—3, 6—1win. gauff is yet to drop a set in the tournament and is the youngest finalist at any grand slam in 18 years. mina harigae leads by a stroke heading into the second round of the women's us open in north carolina later on friday.

to the environment. in one dutch city, they're trying to solve some of those problems by looking up. the bbc�*s tim allman explains. in rotterdam, a kind of revolution is taking place — up in the air. this is a new rooftop walkway that has opened to the public in the centre of the city. we want people to experience how great it is to be on a rooftop and what space we have lying there above the city which we do not use, and what the quality of that space is and what the potential of that space is. a lot of things are happening up here that, some say, could help transform the environment — rooftop farms and gardens, solar panels for energy, the potential for a whole new type of community. translation: it's important| for the environment and also, you have more space, so you can do things on roofs and houses, then you can
save space — and it works. translation: it's a unique | opportunity to see rotterdam from a higher level. normally, you drive through the city and now, you walk above it. rotterdam is a city with plenty of flat roofs and experts say only around 3% of them are being used effectively. the potential for expansion is obvious. big ideas and sky—high ambitions — quite literally. tim allman, bbc news. all the business news coming up shortly. we'll be to the lake district business, a family business in cumbria, coming to the aid of the president of the united states to solve the ongoing milk crisis, the baby formula, going from white gold to black gold, talking about oil as well and the fact that
opec the oil cartel of nations, they are agreeing to accelerate oil production following pressure from the united states and a slowdown in production from russia. coming up. go put the kettle on. hello. obviously, so many events taking place over thejubilee weekend and many of us are hoping for some fine weather and, yes, there will be plenty of sunshine around, but also some heavy showers lurking on the horizon. they will be very hit—and—miss, though. now, the recent satellite picture showed the cloud, which we had during the course of thursday into friday, across the north—west of the uk, so some wet weather through the early hours south—western scotland, parts of northern england, into wales, too, but elsewhere across the country, there is actually a lot of dry
weather to be had and 13 degrees at 8am in the south, 8 degrees expected in aberdeen. now, how about friday daytime, then? so, cloud and rain comes and goes, i think, in the north—west of the country, and then, eventually, most of that should fizzle out and give way to some sunny spells. however, to the south, across the midlands and wales, we could see showers brewing in the afternoon — again, very hit—and—miss — and the temperatures, 22 in london on friday, up to 20 degrees in the western isles of scotland, but for some of us, it'll be closer to the mid—teens, particularly on the north sea coasts, and that's because of those fresh winds blowing off the north sea, and this is the forecast for friday night. so, friday night, many of us having dry weather but through saturday, there is a change taking place to the south of us — a weather front here. high pressure in the north, so it's scotland that, on saturday, has the best of the weather — windless weather, clear blue skies, stunning conditions here. fine weather also stretching into the lakes and northern ireland, but in the south, there will be more cloud and a good chance of catching some showers from southern wales, along the southern counties, maybe a little bit further north. and then, saturday night, into sunday, there's a risk of thunderstorms across
southern areas of the uk. they will be drifting in from the south. the forecast will keep changing. these are very notorious to forecast. the sort of shape of these storms change, the sort of areas they affect may change but the point is that through the course of sunday morning, we think that area of thundery weather will be drifting further northwards, but even once it clears in the south, showers could return in the afternoon, so a very unpredictable day for southern parts on sunday.
