this is bbc news, with the latest headlines for viewers in the uk and around the world. a promise to help millions with the cost of energy this winter from the two candidates for uk prime minister — on the eve of the conservative leadership result. within one week i will make sure there is an announcement on how we are going to deal with the issue of energy bills. we are facing a genuine emergency. i think anyone pretending that isn't the situation isn't being straight with the country and by the way, across europe. meanwhile — german chancellor olaf sholtz announces a financial package to protect its citizens from soaring energy prices. three men have been arrested over the killing of nine—year—old olivia pratt—korbel in liverpool —
one of them was detained on suspicion of murder. people in chile are voting in a referendum on a new consitution that would radically reshape the country's social rights. we start in the uk — the conservative party will announce in less than 2a hours who will replace borisjohnson as its leader and become the new british prime minister. whoever wins will have to tackle the enormous challenge of soaring energy prices. the frontrunner, liz truss, has promised she'll set out immediate action on energy bills if she's elected. meanwhile, rishi sunak says he's got a clear plan to help people struggling with bills, including support to
insulate their homes. our political correspondent ian watson reports. with serious economic challenges to confront, you might wonder why anyone would want to move in here, but this week there will be a new occupant of number ten. the pollsters�* favourite is liz truss. rishi sunak has described himself as the underdog. the winning candidate will have to tackle the cost of living crisis head on. if it's her, liz truss said there would be swift action. i understand that people are struggling with eye—watering energy bills and there are predictions of even worse down the track. if i'm elected as prime minister, i will act immediately on bills and on energy supply. but even under scrutiny she gave no details of her scheme and few clues. she wouldn't say if the scale of support would outdo furlough or, if like the opposition parties, she would freeze prices. labour said that neither conservative candidate have eased
people's anxieties over the soaring costs that they were facing. the two leadership candidates, liz truss you've just heard from, cannot give a specific answer to the one question frankly that everybody wants an answer to, which is what the h... is going to happen to my bills? pretty soon the winning conservative candidate is going to have to stop campaigning and begin the governing and if it's liz truss who walks through the famous black door, we can expect a substantial package of support to be announced this week, despite her decrying hand—outs when she was on the campaign trail. she also says within a month she will keep her promise to cut taxes and today she defended her intention to reverse the national insurance rise. it was pointed out that better off people stood to benefit more. inevitably when you cut taxes you tend to benefit people who are more likely to pay tax. is it fair? it is fair. we promised in our manifesto
that we would not raise national insurance. during the campaign rishi sunak made it clear he'd target help to the poorest households and rule out immediate tax cuts. but today thoughts also turned to what he'd do if he doesn't make it to number ten. i'm going to stay as a member of parliament and i was really delighted, actually i finished this campaign on friday at home in yorkshire with my own members, which was really lovely. it's been a great privilege to represent them as their member of parliament for richmond and north yorkshire. i'd love to keep doing that as long as they will have me. preparations are under way to welcome the new prime minister to downing street on tuesday, but the question that cannot be answered just yet is how well prepared they are to confront the cost of living crisis. iain watson, bbc news, westminster. the german chancellor, olaf scholz, has announced 65 billion dollars worth of new measures to help people and businesses hit by soaring energy costs linked to the war in ukraine.
the plan includes extra payments to the most vulnerable. these are pensioners, students and people on benefits. germany's government is also planning to raise billions of dollars to mitigate energy bills, with a windfall tax on energy company profits. the measures come just two days after russia said it was suspending gas exports through the nord stream one pipeline indefinitely. here's some of what mr scholz had to say. translation: the third | relief package we have put together is larger in scope than the first two combined. if you add it all up, we are talking about 65 billion euros. it is 95 billion euros if you include the first two relief packages. that is a lot that we are moving. it is necessary, it is to help the citizens go through this situation together with us. european leaders have accused russia of weaponising energy supplies, causing the huge spike in energy prices that is driving
the cost of living crisis. ukraine's first lady, olena zelenska, was asked about this when she too spoke to the bbc�*s laura kuenssberg. speaking in kyiv, mrs zelenska said the economic impact of the war in her country is tough — for both ukraine and its allies. translation: we hear that energy is getting pricier, - that life's getting pricier but people should understand that that is not coming through the west's support to ukraine but through the actions of russia. there is no comparison to the suffering of people here, but at home in the united kingdom, as you acknowledge, people are facing very painful choices because of the soaring cost of energy that's going to make things very tough for people. what would you say to our viewers watching at home who feel desperately sorry for what is happening to your people, but also who feel desperately worried about their own ability to pay the bills, to keep a roof over their head? what would you say to them?
translation: well, of course | i understand the situation is very tough but let me recall that at the time of the covid—i9 epidemic, and it is still with us, when there were price hikes, ukraine was affected as well. the prices are going up in ukraine as well but, in addition, our people get killed. so when you start counting pennies in your bank account or in your pocket, we do the same and count our casualties. these days a woman was killed walking in a park in kharkiv. many people were injured. if the support is strong, this period will be shorter. here in the uk, police investigating the murder of nine—year—old olivia pratt—korbel in liverpool have arrested three men. our reporter laura trant has the latest. yes, we've had an update from merseyside police. a 29—year—old man has been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.
earlier today two other men were arrested from the runcorn area in cheshire. one of those was a 34—year—old man from liverpool, he was arrested on suspicion of murder and attempted murder. another 41—year—old man from nosely was also arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender. both are in custody and being interviewed by detectives. merseyside police are continuing to appeal to the public though, for any information they might have, because this little girl, this nine—year—old was shot in the chest, her mother was injured, as a gunman ran into their house and chased another man on the 22nd of august in dovecot where they lived. a number of people have been arrested in relation to this but there is still the need for any information, so police are asking people to check things like dash cam footage, cctv or smart door bell footage. now, this tragic murder has really captured the hearts of the nation and yesterday, in a derby match between
liverpool and everton, fans in the ninth minute — nine because, of course, olivia was nine years old — stood and gave their tribute by applauding her. it was an incredible scene and as i said, she has touched the hearts of so many for all the wrong reasons. a tragic and untimely death. people in chile are voting in a historic referendum on a new constitution that would radically reshape the south american country. the previous constitution was drafted by former dictator augusto pinochet and the new one would instead focus on social rights, climate and gender equality. these are pictures of the chilean president, gabriel boric, casting his vote. results are expected to be very tight. our south america correspondent katy watson has been following the story. sirens. it started three years ago with what has become known as chile's social outburst — mass protests over a rise in subway
fares that grew to encompass deepening inequalities in the region's most stable economy. chanting. top of the protesters' demands was to change chile's constitution drawn up by a dictator. many saw that is the root of the country's problems and so the process to modernise the constitution began. it is huge in scope, covering gender parity, abortion rights, indigenous representation, and climate issues and, if it passes, it will be one of the most progressive constitutions in the world. translation: as you can see, there is order and tranquillity i in the polling stations, as there should be. we guarantee citizens can exercise their right to vote, which is the right thing to do in a democracy. on sunday, we celebrate a tribute to democracy with great peace of mind. translation: we are very happy and very hopeful and we believe l that the big winner this sunday will undoubtedly be democracy.
all the conditions are in place for a calm and safe vote in the region. but in recent weeks, polls have indicated more voters plan to reject the constitution than vote for it. if that happens, it will be a blow for the president, gabriel boric, but he has promised a new constitutional process to ensure that pinochet era text is finally replaced. katy watson, bbc news. i'm joined now from santiago by pascale bonnefoy miralles, freelance journalist and professor of journalism at the university of chile. welcome to bbc news. we are if a few hours away from those polls closing but give us a sense of the conversation there. how people feeling? i conversation there. how people feelin: ? ~ �* , conversation there. how people feelina? ~' �*, ., ., ., feeling? i think there's a lot of uncertainty — feeling? i think there's a lot of uncertainty about _ feeling? i think there's a lot of uncertainty about what - feeling? i think there's a lot of uncertainty about what could l feeling? i think there's a lot of- uncertainty about what could happen because it's really a tight race.
