hospital. we really don't know. the situation is really quite blurry and as we heard earlier, we don't even know the relationship between both of the suspects but we do know, our police chief here in regina recently put out a twitter video, giving us an update and that's the extent of our updates really this evening, and they say they are still treating this as though the suspects are in regina. they responded just before noon today on the outskirts of the city, so it's a situation where a lot of people are on edge. give us a sense of what the area is like where this happened. is it urban, rural, densely populated or not? it is not densely populated or not? it is rrot densely — densely populated or not? it 3 not densely populated at all, ben. it's interesting, where i am right now, whether suspects just kind of back to james smith cree nation, it's a very small, indigenous community and weldon which is kind of outside of it is a village ofjust shy
of it is a village ofjust shy of 200 people, so not very many people there, so a situation like this really does rock the entire community and the province, ben. to give you a sense of how the community is doing, even where i am, it is labour day weekend so when we get an alert on our phones, and we all did today, it started, actually we got three, one initially saying hey, you know, beyond the alert there has been, you know, we did not even know at that time how many people were hurt, let alone killed at that point. but it said it's in northern saskatchewan, right? four hours away, be on edge but we will still party here in regina. well, the party was really put on hold for a lot of people. police state hey, stay home, it is labour day weekend but hunker down because there are people on the loose and we don't know where they are and, like i said, labour day weekend, a big deal here in regina. we have a massive football game. canadian football game. canadian

the republic, it is with great . humility that i take this message and make it my own. we have to listen to the voice of the people — not just today but the last intense years we have lived through. let's not forget why we have come this far, that malaise is still latent and we cannot ignore it. those who historically supported this transformation process must also be self—critical of our actions. chileans have demanded a new opportunity to meet and we must live up to this call. we're nowjoined from santiago by paula molina, a journalist at bbc mundo. paula, what does this result tell us about chile and people's views there in 2022? hi. well, what the results tell us right now is that this last —— large majority reject the proposal constitution. it was only in 2020 where 80% of
chileans voted in favour of a new constitution. 80% voted in changing the 1980 constitution which is still in course today after this reject to the new proposal, but the fact that the new proposal was rejected does not mean that the constitution changes. in chile. as we heard resident gabrielle boric, there is the will of the government to keep on working to work on an itinerary to change the constitution and the political parties in the political opposition has also agreed on that —— president gabriel boric. we are awaiting now is for this dialogue for this agreement to find a new route for the constitution activity. and this is the outcome that was expected or is it a shock result? it was expected or is it a shock result? . , was expected or is it a shock result? ., , ., , . result? it was not predicted. there was — result? it was not predicted. there was a _ result? it was not predicted. there was a majority - result? it was not predicted. there was a majority of- result? it was not predicted. j there was a majority of polls who were betting on triumphant
of the reject and it was a fact before the referendum but i think this large 60— 62% of rejection was not predicted. it was not in anybody�*s mines until the results came out today. and i have to say that the fact that the results, that we already know the results, that most of the process took place in complete calm, is a sense of hope and of pride, i think, for chileans. so the result, democracy has spoken. we have a result. we have to keep on working how to find a way to a constitution that will feel it belongs to our community, to our country, to all of us. community, to our country, to all of us— all of us. and does this result in any way — all of us. and does this result
in any way raise _ all of us. and does this result in any way raise questions - in any way raise questions about president gabriel boric�*s future in office? about president gabriel boric's future in office?— future in office? that's a very interesting. _ future in office? that's a very interesting, definitely - interesting, definitely president gabriel boric faces a huge challenge, and the challenge is, depends on the will of the political opposition. they are white ring parties that were in favour of rejecting the proposal but they were also sent parties who were in favour of protecting the constitution to —— right wing. there were commitments, various commitments, to find common ground, to find a common route for the constitution change. no matter the result of the referendum. now president boric has a mission. the challenge to convey the dialogue to make the change possible and to make a change possible and to make a change not only in the negotiations between the government and the congress of the political parties but also with the participation of
citizens, which i think was part of what was demanded. thank you, paula. stay with us on bbc news. still to come — return: will the duke and duchess of sussex ruffle a few feathers as they make a public appearance back in the uk? george w bush: freedom itself was attacked this morning, and freedom will be defended. the united states will hunt down and punish those responsible. bishop tutu now becomes spiritual leader of 100,000 anglicans here, of the blacks in soweto township, as well as the whites in their rich suburbs. we say to you today- in a loud and a clear voice, "enough of blood and tears. enough!" _

don't go away, i'll be back with the business news, injust a few minutes. hello. it's been a weekend of extremes across the uk, warm sunshine helping temperatures up to 26 celsius across east anglia. torrential rain, particularly, for northern ireland and scotland, and that heavy rain has been coming from this area of low pressure, which is the dominant feature in the week ahead. so, for those of us that need the rain, there will be some notable rain in the forecast over the coming days. there'll be some warm spells of sunshine too, and gradually, the temperatures will start to come down. and we start monday with some rain across north—east england and across scotland. that will be pushing its way north and eastwards. may linger across the northern isles for much of the day. behind it, warm spells of sunshine, for many, a few heavy and thundery showers, most will stay dry but those showers becoming more frequent across wales and south—west england through the afternoon. a breezy day, some gusty winds across south—west england, irish sea coasts and also
for the northern isles, but warm in the sunshine, temperatures getting up to the low, if not mid 20 celsius, 25 celsius the expected high across some eastern parts of england. now, through the evening, those showers push their way further northwards into the midlands and northern england, northern ireland, and eventually, we'll see some rain pushing its way across scotland as well, some heavy and potentially thundery. behind it, some clearer skies, maybe a few patches of mist and fog. once again, it's another warm and muggy night with temperatures not much lower than 11! or 15 celsius. so, this is then how tuesday shapes up — this area of low pressure still parked to the west of the uk, notice the squeeze in the isobars, so still some gusty winds particularly for irish sea coasts and, once again, plenty of showers. now, some of us will start dry on tuesday, there'll be some warm spells of sunshine, but it won't be long before those showers start to get going, you can see them developing like a rash across a large swathe of the uk. they'll be heavy and thundery, could well merge to give a longer spell of rain, not quite so many showers getting across to the
eastern side of england. warm in the sunshine again, 23 or 21! celsius. where we've got the showers and the breeze, more like 18 or 19 celsius. this low pressure makes slow progress eastwards across the uk as we head through the middle and latter part of the week. slowly the winds start to ease down, but still plenty of showers, so those showers will be slow—moving, but it looks like we should get some rain for areas that need them. so, the week ahead really is going to be a mixture of sunny spells, but also, some heavy and potentially thundery showers, and slowly, the temperatures start to come down as well. goodbye.
