as german chancellor olaf scholz laid out in a press conference short while ago. it will make the ambition of making the world a better offer an infrastructure. we the world a better offer an infrastructure.— the world a better offer an infrastructure. ~ . ., . ., infrastructure. we are watching our “oint work infrastructure. we are watching our joint work for _ infrastructure. we are watching our joint work for global _ infrastructure. we are watching our joint work for global infrastructure | joint work for global infrastructure and investment. with our infrastructure initiative, we are building strong national initiatives such as the eu global gateway initiative and similar initiatives of other g7 members. yet another example of our unity and close corporation at g7. the decision to work together on this offer to the world was taken last year in the bay. since then, we have worked hard and made great progress. the buddha g7 structure and launched concrete partnerships in climate and health.
5:07 pm
partnerships for more just world. but that is the impact of some of these decisions and the rest world. they can often mean that people around the world don't often know what the g7 is for. these are financially powerful nations, but as a matterfor everybody financially powerful nations, but as a matter for everybody else? us presidentjoe biden also outlined his commitment to the g7 over the next five years. trained to provide unified support and influence that will persuade commercial markets to invest too and some of these countries. today, we officially announced the global infrastructure and an investment. we have dozens of projects already under way along the globe. in $200 billion in public and private capital over the next five years for the partnership. we are here today because we're making this
5:08 pm
commitment together at the g7 and coordination with maximising the impact of our work. just above me, the leaders of been conveying backwards and forwards by helicopter not least because of the amount of protest activity. hundreds of people have gathered at various locations to try to protest over subjects like, for example, the impact of higher prices on the roads poon impact of higher prices on the roads poor. the desire for more action on climate change and climate club has been announced to the g7 and those who have ambitious climate targets and some of those protesters don't think any of the climate targets are ambitious enough and hundreds of protesters and in truth, these protests are nothing like they've beenin protests are nothing like they've been in previous years with thousands of people would've turned up. that may be because the length

work at either the g7 or the commonwealth heads of government or nato as well, he is away from along time from westminster but the chat is about whether or not some mps or try to change the rules so there's another no—confidence vote sooner than the year which a situation under the current rule. he will be hoping that the next few days will calm nerves but i think it is a lot to deal with when he gets back to london. officials in south africa believe at least 21 people have died at a nightclub in the southern city of east london. it's understood the victims were aged between 1a and 20 and were celebrating after finishing their school exams. earlier, i spoke to localjournalist luke charter about reports parents were unable to get into the nightclub to find out whether their children were among the dead.
5:14 pm
at this stage, the parents were told they had to visit the morgue but police are trying to secure the crime scene or present evidence, so had to restrict access and of course there were so many people there and some pure they did not know of their children were in the club at the time and so, he became a bit of a situation to stop them from entering the space. situation to stop them from entering the sace. ~ ., ,., situation to stop them from entering the sace. ~ . , situation to stop them from entering the sace. ~ ., ,., the space. what you tell us about the space. what you tell us about the tavern itself? _ the space. what you tell us about the tavern itself? is _ the space. what you tell us about the tavern itself? is quite - the space. what you tell us about the tavern itself? is quite a - the space. what you tell us about the tavern itself? is quite a smallj the tavern itself? is quite a small venue in an _ the tavern itself? is quite a small venue in an area _ the tavern itself? is quite a small venue in an area where _ the tavern itself? is quite a small venue in an area where most - the tavern itself? is quite a small venue in an area where most of. the tavern itself? is quite a small. venue in an area where most of the patrons would have been from lower income area. so, he alsojust finished her covid—19 lockdown and mask rules of fallen away and so the first week in people had access to party enjoy themselves. in the place seemed like it was repacked and ——

the prince of wales accepted a suitcase containing a million euros in cash from a former qatari prime minister. the sundy times says this was one of three cash donations from sheikh hamad binjassim, totalling three million euros. clarence house said donations from the sheikh were passed immediately to one of the prince's charities and all the correct processes were followed. there is no suggestion the payments were illegal. our correspondent leigh milner told us more about the allegations. of course, this is all of the sunday times and he accepted 1 million euros cash and talking about the former prime minister and have been very clear in saying that the donations were passed immediately to one of the princes charities and are
5:18 pm
the creek processes were followed and to make this absolutely clear, there is no suggestion at this point that the payments were illegal. but if you look at the report in the papers, since the prince charles received three in person from the former prime minister between 2011 and 2015. and it's claimed that on one of those occasions, the money was actually handed over at a meeting at his house. and the paper reported that it was contained and carry back in the department store in mason. �* . , , in mason. and wait if they been sa in: in mason. and wait if they been saying about — in mason. and wait if they been saying about this? _ in mason. and wait if they been saying about this? they - in mason. and wait if they been saying about this? they want i in mason. and wait if they beenj saying about this? they want to emphasise _ saying about this? they want to emphasise that _ saying about this? they want to emphasise that the _ saying about this? they want to emphasise that the funds - saying about this? they want to emphasise that the funds were | emphasise that the funds were received and stated that they were going to transform lives and build sustainable communities and say all the correct processes were followed as well meanwhile, the fund to store the sunday times that all of its trustees agreed that the donor was legitimate and that it all signed

5:22 pm
once again, ukraine's capital is under attack. this video said to show the city's horizon as more russian rockets hit. and once again, civilians are in the firing line. a residential block in the centre of kyiv smouldering, ripped apart. inside, rescuers reach a young girl, pinned down by debris. they manage to bring her to safety and then taken to hospital. moments later, ukrainian official appears outside, brandishing a russian passport, saying that one woman still trapped is originally from moscow. shortly afterwards, paramedics bring her out but her condition is clear. whether or not this was the intended target, it's shattered the relative calm

of national police says they are now collecting evidence which could prove this attack was a war crime. there have been more explosions here as the day has gone on. this may be far from the fiercest fighting raging in the east of the country but russia has tried to strike fear and pain at the heart of ukraine's capital. nick beake, bbc news, kyiv. in germany — where the g7 group of world leaders are meeting, borisjohnson has said the conflict in ukraine is at a critical point. he was speaking after meeting president macron of france, and amid a focus back home on his leadership and position after by—election losses. our political editor, chris mason, reports. the leaders of the world's richest countries gather to work out what to do next about ukraine. they begin by mocking president putin. bare—chested horseback! the canadian prime minister suggests
5:25 pm
they should mimic the russian leader by riding bareback on a horse, as he has done. beyond the jokes, though, there are real differences of emphasis and approach here about how much and for how long ukraine should be helped. the uk insists it must be for the long haul. the prime minister, though, acknowledges some are tiring of it. i think that the pressure is there and the anxiety is there and we've got to be honest about that. the g7 has been solid and we continue to be solid. but in order to protect that unity, in order to make it work, you've got to have really, really honest discussions about the implications of what's going on. these two men look like the best of friends. a reunion of a year old now... but in private, the prime minister emphasised to the french president any attempt to settle the conflict now, with russia having stolen ukrainian territory, would be a mistake.
5:26 pm
at this summit, the aim is to portray as much unity and resolve as possible as the conflict in ukraine drags on and its costs back home, not least rising prices, become more obvious. president biden in conversation with the summit�*s host, the german chancellor, stressed a sense of togetherness was imperative. we have to stay together. as putin is counting on from the beginning that somehow nato would... and the g7 would splinter and... but we haven't and we're not going to, so can't let that aggression take the form it has and get away with it. the fundamental truth for all of the leaders here is the democratic pressures they face back home from their parties and their public. borisjohnson is well aware of this, of course. this matters because the leaders have to mould and flex their views to reflect their domestic audience. unlike their opponent, president putin, who does not. the challenge, then,
5:27 pm
is how to stand together, how to move as one. not easy and not guaranteed in the long term. chris mason, bbc news at the g7 summit in germany. also at the g7 is our diplomatic correspondent james landale. how would you describe this stance on ukraine and how united it is, james, between these leaders? weill. james, between these leaders? well, michelle, there's _ james, between these leaders? well, michelle, there's no _ james, between these leaders? well, michelle, there's no great _ james, between these leaders? -ii michelle, there's no great strategic division here. i think the g7 is going to continue giving weapons to ukraine, it's going to continue imposing sanctions on moscow. if not putting pressure to kyiv to cede territory in the fighting. they are trying to put on a big show of unity. that is because there is a debate going on within some governments, some electorates, but what is more important — ending this war or defeat in russia. the prime
5:28 pm
minister, as chris reported, is very clear, saying that any attempt to settle the conflict now would lead to an enduring instability. and there's also a broader fear and that is that this war is making the global economic crisis worse, it is adding to the rising energy costs, the food shortages. it's having a real impact on people. it was very striking the prime minister said the west had to be far more honest about that. what we are seeing at this conference here is a new debate, the west are saying we need to remake the case for resisting russian aggression while also accepting there is a pretty heavy price to be paid for that. there is a pretty heavy price to be paid for that-— paid for that. thank you, james landale. paid for that. thank you, james landale- at _ paid for that. thank you, james landale. at the _ paid for that. thank you, james landale. at the g7 _ paid for that. thank you, james landale. at the g7 summit. - it's emerged that the prince of wales accepted donations for his charitable projects of up to three million euros in cash from the former prime minister of the gulf state of qatar. the sunday times has also reported some of the money was handed directly to prince charles. our royal correspondent jonny dymond is with me. what are the prince's
5:29 pm
representatives saying about this? the prince's office does not deny the substance of this story although they clearly have some concerns about some of the detail. but they acknowledge that a very large donation was passed over in cash to the prince. he passed it to their assistance —— his assistants and they put it in the bank account of charities and the appropriate checks were made. there is no suggestion of any illegality or rule breaking. this is somewhat embarrassing partly because such a huge donation being made in cash. i mean, a bank transfer or a cheque would be more regular barley because there has been so much controversy around previous fundraising efforts from some of the prince's charities. perhaps most importantly, because of the suggestion, perception, amongst some that one person giving such a huge donation may end up having undue influence on the air to the throne, the man who will be king.
5:30 pm
johnny diamond, thank you. at least 20 young people have been found dead in a nightclub in the port city of east london in south africa. the cause of death is not yet known. there were no injuries on the bodies and it's thought there may have been a gas leak. shingai nyoka reports. the nightclub where so many young people died. police remain at the scene of the incident in which the cause of these deaths remain far from clear. officers responded to distress calls at enyobeni tavern in the early hours of this morning. most of the victims were teenagers. at this stage, the parents have been told they have to visit the morgue to identify their children. the problem was police were trying to secure the crime scene, or preserve evidence, so they had to restrict access. of course, there were so many people there and so many people that didn't know if their children were in the nightclub at the time, so it became a bit of a... um... situation to... to stop them from entering the space. south africa's president, cyril ramaphosa, expressed his condolences to the families and called for a thorough investigation.
5:31 pm
the police have ruled out a stampede as the cause.
