an attempt to intimidate by russia — ahead of international summits. vitali klitschko arrived at the scene of a strike a short time ago, and says people are still trapped in buildings. translation: the building has been destroyed and we understand that people under rubble. they are alive and rescues are doing their best to get them out. live now to kyiv. our correspondent joe inwood is there. we understand these missiles landed around five o'clock this morning at around five o'clock this morning at a nine story residential building overin a nine story residential building over in the west of the city in that direction. and we have seen the pictures and the top of the building is completely destroyed. there are firefighters no dampening down the fires and using cranes to get on top of the building because there are
people still trapped and we have seen footage of people being brought out on stretchers, a young girl on a stretcher and taken to hospital, and in total five people are injured. stretcher and taken to hospital, and in totalfive people are injured. in the last half hour or so more silence have signed it across the city so there is an ongoing concern this might not be the last missile strike. i5 this might not be the last missile strike. , ~ ., this might not be the last missile strike. , ~ . , , ., strike. is the thinking that russia is doinu strike. is the thinking that russia is doing this _ strike. is the thinking that russia is doing this to _ strike. is the thinking that russia is doing this to tie _ strike. is the thinking that russia is doing this to tie in _ strike. is the thinking that russia is doing this to tie in with - strike. is the thinking that russia is doing this to tie in with the - is doing this to tie in with the start of these international summits we are world leaders are gathering? it is very difficult to answer that question. there have been examples in the past, a striking correlation of coincidence between large events and this sort of thing happening. remember back to one of the recent missile attacks and we cannot intent is a direct correlation but that
does seem to be thatjust as world leaders are gathering and president zelensky is preparing to address them at the g7 capital should be struck in such a way.— them at the g7 capital should be struck in such a way. people have been returning _ struck in such a way. people have been returning to _ struck in such a way. people have been returning to the _ struck in such a way. people have been returning to the capital- struck in such a way. people have been returning to the capital but| struck in such a way. people have| been returning to the capital but it is a serious reminder that people cannot be complacent and office of this war goes on. it is cannot be complacent and office of this war goes on.— this war goes on. it is a really stranue this war goes on. it is a really strange contradiction - this war goes on. it is a really strange contradiction you - this war goes on. it is a really| strange contradiction you get. this war goes on. it is a really i strange contradiction you get. if you walk around the streets of kyiv as we do all the time, in some ways it feels normal, you see tank traps and sandbags and soldiers but ordinary life continues here. i was speaking to young people about how they are trying to get on with our former existence within the south hams and you are reminded and that really dramatic and visceral way that this is still a city at war, a country at war, and the fact the
fighting on the ground is confined to the east and south does not mean that people are entirely safe in the capital. the war is set to dominate a summit of g7 leaders which is getting under way in germany. as well as discussing ways to deal with russian aggression, world leaders will also look at how to manage the cost of living crisis caused in part by the conflict. the summit is being held in the bavarian alps. the media are being kept some distance away in garmisch, where our correspondentjenny hill is as well. what action might flow from the summit? , , . , what action might flow from the summit? , ,. , �* summit? the terrible scenes we're from k iv summit? the terrible scenes we're from kyiv this _ summit? the terrible scenes we're from kyiv this morning _ summit? the terrible scenes we're from kyiv this morning will- summit? the terrible scenes we're from kyiv this morning will weigh l from kyiv this morning will weigh heavily on the minds of the world leaders gathering here today. ukraine will absolutely dominate the
conversations. there is no question, i think of the fact they are unanimous in wanting to send a very strong message of support on ukraine, they will discuss economic, medical, military support. in terms of the economy it is acknowledged ukraine will need something in the region of $5 billion per month to keep itself going and start reconstruction. after that, the long—term financial situation will be very difficult and it is one of the many details of the disabled talk about. they are under pressure to come up with concrete measures. this will be about the direction of travel, where they want to go in terms of the politics, but the world is watching and ukraine will be putting pressure on them to deliver on their words not least of course because president zelensky will address them via video link here and address them via video link here and a session tomorrow. in addition, these leaders have to deal with the fallout of this ongoing conflict, what it means for international food
security, what it means for energy supply and cost around the world. these leaders are really under pressure from their own electrics back home, think of president macron france who has considerably weakened in recent elections, they know their populations are weakened from the creasing cost of living and the rising cost of energy, other countries experiencing real issues with food supply, think of africa and the difficulty of getting hold of ukrainian grain and wheat. there is a lot for these leaders to discuss. it is set in this gorgeous setting and the bavarian alps surrounded by mountains covered in pine trees and the juxtaposition between the beauty of the surrounding here in the grimness of the subjects being discussed by these leaders is really very start
indeed. borisjohnson says he's planning to be in downing street well into the next decade — despite continuing questions about his leadership.speaking after a meeting of the commonwealth heads of state in rwanda, mrjohnson said he could continue as prime minister until the mid—2030s. he said he wanted to cut inequality through what his government calls �*levelling up' and insisted that a "huge amount of progress" could be made in two parliaments. police in norway have charged a 42—year—old man with murder, attempted murder and terrorist acts after a shooting which left two people dead and 21 others injured. shots were fired at a popular gay venue in the capital oslo and led to authorities postponing the city's pride parade. gail maclellan has the latest. it was the celebration
before the big lgbtq+ event of the year. the first pride march in three years. instead, a man went on a rampage that at least one automatic weapon, killing two and injuring over 20. the suspect, a norwegian who came from iran as a child, was arrested quickly after the shooting started. translation: the suspect has been known to the intelligence services. he has a long history of violence and threats and was known to us since 2015, with concerns that he was radicalised as part of an islamist network in norway. the shootings happened near the london gay pub, and a jazz club in the central area, packed with people on a warm summer night. some hid in the pub's basement,
many made calls to loved ones. personally, for me i know a lot of the people that were outside london pub last night, and i know a lot of the volunteers that we have in oslo pride, i also know people that were there and were either witnesses or injured. last night. so this has definitely been a really hard hit to our community. red flags and flowers were laid near the scene of the attack. norway's royal family spoke of the strength of the community. translation: it's important that we defend who we are, that norway is a country where you are allowed to love who you want and be with you want. as a result of the attacks, the country's threat level has been raised and police temporarily armed. the man who did it to tear us apart,
but i think this brings us closer together as one, to stand as one, two face this. though the pride march was postponed, thousands still took to the streets. we are here, we're queer, we won't disappear! marching in defiance and solidarity. gail mclennan, bbc news. the former us president donald trump has hailed the supreme court ruling that overturned the right to abortion as a victory for the constitution, the rule of law, and life itself. protests for and against the decision have continued for a second day. some women in states where bans have come into force are rushing to make alternative arrangements, after clinics closed their doors and cancelled appointments. simonjones reports. back up! angry scenes in los angeles as police confront protesters
back up! angry scenes in los angeles as police confront protesters who are demanding that the right to abortion remains. all chant: we want abortion on demand! anger, too, outside the supreme court in washington. i want to do something with you guys — a little therapeutic screaming. people determined that their voices are heard. screaming. don't kill your baby! but in mississippi, those who backed the supreme court's ruling gather outside an abortion clinic, emotions running high on both sides of the debate. my father is my king and he is not in you. he's not in you. you're in need of a saviour today. you're in need of a saviour. you don't know god. i know him more than you will ever know him. god does not hear your prayers. yes. oh, he does hear them.
no, you are for the devil. and a political divide, too. the court handed down a victory for the constitution, a victory for the rule of law and, above all, a victory for life. jill and i know how painful and devastating this decision is for so many americans — and i mean so many americans. the decision is implemented by states. my administration is going to focus on how they administer it and whether or not they violate other laws. following the ruling, around 26 states looks set to ban abortions, except for when a woman's life is at risk, but a growing number of businesses say they will support those who need abortions, such as bank of america, which will cover travel costs. and prominent figures are continuing to speak out. obviously disappointed about the decision made and, you know, i just... really, for me, i mean, obviously, i feel bad for future women, and women now, but i also feel bad for those who protested for this i don't even know how many years ago, but protested for this
and are alive to see that — see that decision be reversed. but as the ramifications of the ruling sink in, the divisions in society remain as strong as ever. simon jones, bbc news. the headlines: several russian cruise missiles have struck the ukrainian capital, kyiv, causing large explosions. the attacks come as world leaders meet in germany where they'll discuss how to support ukraine. among the leaders at the summit is borisjohnson who has said he is "actively thinking" about a third term, amid criticism of his leadership. spain's prime minister — pedro sanchez — has blamed mafias involved in human trafficking for the mass storming of the border between morocco and the spanish enclave of melilla on friday. at least 23 people died in the attempt to cross fences into spanish territory — and spanish and moroccan security forces were also injured. the bbc�*s tim allman reports.
it was a scene of chaos and sometimes brutal carnage. security personnel almost overrun by hundreds of people trying to enter spanish territory. according to officials in morocco, some died while falling from the fence, others were crushed in a stampede. many were injured and taken to hospital while others could be seen celebrating successfully reaching spanish soil. the country's prime minister had no doubt who was to blame. translation: a violent - and organised assault organised by mafia who traffic human beings to a city situated on spanish soil. as a result, this is an attack on our territorial integrity. melilla has been under spanish control for more than 500 years — the source of some irritation for morocco, which claims the
territory as its own. in recent years, it's become a focal point for mostly sub—saharan migrants trying to reach europe. there's been some criticism of the response of spanish personnel, saying it was heavy—handed. the mayor of barcelona described the events as "institutional racism". for now, the border seems relatively quiet. order has been restored. but the movement of migrants and refugees, desperate people looking for a better life, suggests this could well happen again. tim allman, bbc news. we're getting some breaking news from south africa. media reports suggest at least 17 people have been found dead in a nightclub in east london in the eastern cape. the cause of the deaths is not known — local media has spoken of poisoning, or a stampede inside the venue.

these all go on the floor tomorrow. you are the first people to see them so i would like you to have a look at this and see what you think. backpacks filled with sensory aids, one of the changes made making the area more welcoming for all visitors. making them sensory friendly environments is great, particularly when there are tonnes of people and it's good to have something you can chill with. described to me how it is helping you? for example, if you are overstimulated, it helps to relieve some of the pressure. over the last three years, zoe and her friends at the north—east —— over the last three years, zoe

going out and trying activities and a different child. recognised that industry awards for her their work for inclusivity, it is hoped thst this model will be followed elsewhere. we are talking to other cultural body visitor attractions in tyne & wear and in europe and we work internationally and people have been hungry to hear about our experiences. if we can help them, of course we will. every month, a quiet session will now take place at the life sciences centre, informed by a team hope for their enjoyment will also be matched by others as well. megan paterson, bbc news hello. hello, everyone. i hope you're doing all right. well, we had a plentiful supply of heavy, blustery showers yesterday and more of that to come for many of us today. but we are seeing some brightness, so it's not a complete write off as far as the unsettled weather is concerned.
and the reason we're seeing this is down to what we're having here on the pressure chart, an area of low pressure. this is nearby, it's not really going anywhere in a hurry. you can see the winds swirling around it here and the winds are introducing those heavy, blustery downpours. so showery spells of rain moving in from western parts. you can see the weather frontier trailing from parts of scotland, northern ireland to the northwest of england, western parts of wales, eventually creeping into the south west of england as well. there is a bit of an east—west split today, however, the further east you go, the drier it is and the warmer it is. top temperatures 23 celsius across southeastern parts of england, whereas parts of wales, northern ireland in particular cooler. and we'll have those heavy downpours as i mentioned. now, i've spoken about the winds
already thanks to the presence of that low pressure. these are the wind gusts in excess of a0 to 50 miles per hour across the isle of man, parts of anglesey, western coastal fringes, for example. yes, it will be breezy or blustery further east, but not quite as windy here. how is it looking at glastonbury? well, it will be quite windy at times, i think, with some heavy showers, but it will brighten up and i think we will see some sunshine at times. let's head through this evening, then. the weather front is very slowly creeping across towards the east, introducing those heavy downpours with it. again, we could hear the odd rumble of thunder, i think eastern parts of england remaining dry, but we can't rule out the odd shower here as well. top temperatures reaching 11 or 12 celsius as far as our lows are concerned tonight. now, the low pressure i was speaking of earlier is moving away towards the north, but we are shortly going to be joined by another low. this is creeping in from the west as we head through the next 2a hours or so. so monday starts off
dry for many of us. we still have those heavy downpours. however, they're moving across towards the east. here's the low pressure introducing that weather front into parts of northern ireland. another windy one, i think. these are the average wind speeds, but gusts in excess of what we're seeing there. and at top, temperatures quite similar about 22 or 23 celsius, fairly unsettled at times this week, i think, thanks to the low pressure. but temperatures will rise a bit for a time. we'll keep you posted. see you soon.
this is bbc news. the headlines... several russian cruise missiles have struck the ukrainian capital, kyiv, causing large explosions. the attacks come as world leaders meet in germany where they'll discuss how to support ukraine. among the leaders at the summit is borisjohnson who has said he is "actively thinking" about a third term, amid criticism of his leadership. each donald trump applauds the supreme court ruling on abortion — calling it a victory for life itself.
