a record breaking heatwave sweeps spain as temperature hit 43 degrees celsius. authorities are on alert for thje possibilty of wildfires. in the wake of russia's invaion of ukraine, nato shares it comcerns about vulnerable members in eastern europe, we have a special report on the extremely close encounters ith the russian military. —— encounters with the russian military. and, a buzz lightyear animated film, featuring a same sex kiss, is banned in 14 middle eastern and asian countries. hello and welcome. the first flight taking migrants who entered the uk illegally to be resettled in rwanda is set to leave today. about seven people are expected to be on board, although three
of them are understood to be planning to appeal. the head of the un refugee agency said the policy set a catastrophic precedent. our home editor mark easton has the story. dozens more asylum seekers arrived on the kent coast today, 37 men who the government says should potentially face removal to rwanda because they've travelled from france, a safe country. and this is the boeing 767 chartered by the home office to take the first group of asylum seekers on a one way ticket to rwanda. the plane can take around 200 passengers, but a maximum ofjust eight asylum seekers will be aboard, and three of those are in court tomorrow arguing to be removed from the passenger list. shame on you! the rwanda policy divides opinion, apparent outside the courts ofjustice today. for some, it's an effective way
to deal with migrants who come to the uk illegally. for others, it's an immoral and unlawful way to treat vulnerable people who are asking the uk for sanctuary. to stay removal of asylum seekers... lawyers were making a last—ditch attempt in the court of appeal to stop tomorrow's rwanda flight, but the threejudges, led by lord justice singh, decided there was not enough to overturn last week's decision to let the plane take off. this court cannot therefore interfere with that conclusion. chanting: shame on you! campaigners were disappointed by thejudgement, but there will be a full legal review of the rwanda policy in the courts to be completed by the end ofjuly. at the united nations in geneva, the news that asylum seekers were to be forcibly removed to rwanda was described as catastrophic. we believe this is all wrong. this is all wrong, this deal, for so many different reasons. the home secretary has always argued that her rwandan removals policy is designed to deter people
from taking dangerous and unnecessaryjourneys from safe countries and will undermine the criminal operations of people smugglers. it is in the public interest, she says. but ministers believe that even if only a single asylum seeker is aboard, the flight could be a game changer in dealing with what they call illegal immigration. mark easton, bbc news, at the court of appeal. our correspondent anne soy is at the hope hostel in the rwandan capital, kigali where the migrants will stay. reparations have going on here in rwanda and how the government says it is ready to receive asylum seekers from the uk. the first group to arrive will be hosted here, the hope hostel. the government says this is not a detention facility. asylum seekers can leave the premises, interact to the local community and we asked them how free will they be and the answer i got is, as free as any rwandan. as long as
they remain within rwanda they will be the responsibility of the rwandan government, their claims asylum will be processed under rwandan law and applicable international laws. and almost every person you meet in this country has either been a refugee or knows somebody who has been and speaking to them in the street they say they welcome the asylum seekers because they know, because of rwanda's history, the 1994 genocide, they know what it means to be a refugee, they know what it needs to flee from your country and that is really what the government says their motivation for doing this. they want to be part of a solution to a global challenge. the eu is threatening to take legal action against the british government, after it published controversial plans to cancel parts of the brexit deal that it agreed with the eu. prime minister borisjohnson wants to change the northern ireland protocol, to make it easier for some goods to move between mainland britain
and northern ireland. it's not a big deal. we can fix it in such a way as to remove those bureaucratic barriers, but without putting up barriers on trade moving north—south in the island of ireland. the white house has called on the uk and the european union to get back to the negotiating table. the eu says the plan is unacceptable, as it breaks international law. here's our europe editor, katya adler. the eu didn't want to overreact to the government's proposed legislation. i mean, it's not law yet. but it didn't want to under react either. it is seen here as extremely serious that the government seeks to have powers to override large parts of the protocol that it co—wrote and signed off with the eu. so as a warning, the eu this week is looking to restart legal proceedings against the uk for not implementing checks on certain goods it says it should do under the protocol. but, the same time, we have from the eu's chief negotiator in the commission who said he is about to unveil a whole load of new proposals to iron
out those practical problems in northern ireland that have been provoked by the protocol. come back to the negotiating table, he says, to the eu. and, in fact, when you look at issues like customs, lanes, and things like that, you know, the two sides really are not that far apart, it'sjust the mood music right now is dreadful. it certainly is. and we will unpack that further in our business coverage. among the guests will be the head of federation of small businesses in northern ireland to get their reaction to what is happening at the moment. all that to come in 20 minute. "detached from reality", that is how the former us attorney—general, william barr, described donald trump after the 2020 election. speaking on a second day of public hearings into last year's attack on the capitol, he said he'd showed no interest in the facts. mr trump has called the us congressional committee investigating the storming of the building a "kangaroo
cou rt" mr trump's former campaign manager bill stephen was not able to appear, so the committee used video clips from his earlier testimony. let's take a listen to what he and bill barr had to say. my belief, my recommendation was to say that votes were still being counted, it's too early to tell, too early to call the race, but, you know, we're proud of the race we ran and we, you know, think we're in a good position and we will have more to say about this, you know, the next day or the next day, whenever we had something to say. and did anybody who was a part of that conversation disagree with your message? yes. who was that? the president disagreed with that. i don't recall the particular words. he thought i was wrong. he told me so, and, you know,
that they were going to, you know... he was going to go in a different direction. i did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen and putting out this stuff, which i told the president was bleep. and, you know, i didn't want to be a part of it. let's get more from our north america correspondent david willis. as we listen to these testimonies, some of it is jawdropping, isn't it? just talk us through how people are reacting to all of this in the us? ,, . ., ., us? the select committee are seekin: us? the select committee are seeking to _ us? the select committee are seeking to point _ us? the select committee are seeking to point out, - us? the select committee are seeking to point out, to - us? the select committee are seeking to point out, to prove | seeking to point out, to prove to the american people if you like that donald trump was at the centre of a conspiracy to overturn the outcome of the 2020 presidential election and thereby maintain him in power and central to that alleged conspiracy is what democrats call the big lie, that was
donald trump ausmat contention that the 2020 election was riddled with voter fraud and therefore that the result was stolen from him. today, the committee in its second public hearing heard numerous former donald trump aides say that they attempted to persuade the former president that indeed there was no sign of illegitimacy as far as the election result was concerned, but he consistently ignored them and we heard there from william barr, the former attorney general who was handpicked by donald trump and accused by democrats on occasion of being too close to the former president, yet even he said that he couldn't believe the conspiracy theories that donald trump was swallowing in regard to the election outcome, to the point where mr barr said he thought that former president trump had become detached from reality. well, let's talk about that because the former president describes this as a kangaroo
court, he says the aim is to stop him from running in 2024 win the next election is expected to take place. how is donald trump getting his voice heard these days as he is not on twitter and other social media platforms? he on twitter and other social media platforms?- on twitter and other social media platforms? on twitter and other social media latforms? . , , ., media platforms? he has put out a statement _ media platforms? he has put out a statement and _ media platforms? he has put out a statement and he _ media platforms? he has put out a statement and he has - media platforms? he has put out a statement and he has also - media platforms? he has put out a statement and he has also of l a statement and he has also of course got his truth social, which is his own version of twitter, not as large force but central to this investigation is proven, if it's possible, that donald trump knew that the election result had not been stolen from him but continued to put that falsehood out into the public arena, and indeed in that 12 page statement that donald trump released tonight, if anything he doubles down on his assertion that the outcome of the election was the crime of the election was the crime of the election was the crime of the century as he put it, he also said that the select committee that has been examining this issue has made a mockery ofjustice, as he put
it, but this is an important point because in order to prove this point and to move anybody who might be on the fringes of the republican party over to the republican party over to the democratic side of things, that has to be proven, that donald trump lied and did so knowingly, while an awful lot of republicans actually agree with him and believe that the result of the 2020 election was stolen from him, so this is a very difficult point to make in a deeply polarised country such as this just now. yes a deeply polarised country such as this just now.— as this 'ust now. yes indeed, the as thisjust now. yes indeed, the lot as thisjust now. yes indeed, the plot will _ as thisjust now. yes indeed, the plot will thicken. - as thisjust now. yes indeed, the plot will thicken. for - as thisjust now. yes indeed, l the plot will thicken. for now, thank you. temperatures in some areas of spain are expected to hit or remain around 43 degrees celsius this week, as a heatwave which has been sweeping the country continues. the soaring temperatures have caused the authorities to put many areas of the country on alert due to the risk of wildfires. mark lobel reports.

scotland, northern ireland. this will help to keep the temperatures mild here, overnight tonight, but underneath the clear skies, temperatures will drop back into single figures, mid—single figures locally, perhaps, across england and wales. so a locally chilly start to the day here. but here, of course, we'll see lots of sunshine throughout the day on tuesday, some fair weather cloud building through the afternoon. further north and west, with still all of this cloud around, some outbreaks of rain for western areas of scotland. eastern areas of scotland, though, should see some sunny spells emerge at times. temperatures peaking in the southeast of england at around 25 celsius. the pollen levels, of course, in all of that sunshine, will be very high, a lot lower underneath the cloud and the rain towards the northwest, and that's where the cloud and the outbreaks of rain will tend to stay as we head through tuesday night. we'll start to see some warmer nights as we head through the rest of the week. temperatures across the board into wednesday morning should stay in double figures for the most part. still got some outbreaks of rain up towards the northern isles as we head through the day on wednesday, lots of cloud here. again, cloudier towards the northwest. across england and wales,
temperatures will start to rise into the high 20s in celsius, so 26—27 celsius for much of london. cooler the further north you go. and let's take a look at what happens for the rest of the week — so our high pressurejust gradually moves eastwards and the cold front will sink southwards, introducing that cooler—feeling air. but if we take a look at the temperatures, you can see that across northern ireland, 19—20 celsius, whereas across cambridge, 31 celsius by friday.
