it's a familiar side, north korea testing its missiles. but monday's launch was different. for the first time since 2017, msl flu all the way overjapan. the latest launch, the fifth in a week, has been strongly condemned by south korean and japanese officials. translation: ., ., translation: north korea's actions regarding _ translation: north korea's actions regarding the - translation: north korea's. actions regarding the repeated ballistic missile launchers are a threat to the peace and security of our country, region, and international community, and is a serious challenge for our country and the entire international community.— the entire international communi . community. people in japan awoke to — community. people in japan awoke to messages - community. people in japan awoke to messages warning community. people in japan - awoke to messages warning them to take shelter as rocket fragments landed in the pacific ocean. it's a serious 0cean. it's a serious escalation of military action as north korea tests its rockets as well as the patience of its neighbours.—

speculation _ now. yes, there is a lot of speculation when - now. yes, there is a lot of speculation when north i now. yes, there is a lot of - speculation when north korea does these launchers that they are key to other things going on other places, it is not clear to me at this time, perhaps the us midterm is coming up. the medium term answer is it is pretty clear the north koreans would have a fully fledged out nuclear and missile programme are part of that means regularly testing. we know the north koreans want to build battlefield small nuclear weapons, submarines, they want not just the long—range missiles they construct the united states but other targets in the region, and that means a lot of testing. they haven't done that for the past two years, because for the past two years, because for a while there trump and kim were talking, so now it is back to the test. it is part of the larger effort over the last year or so. larger effort over the last year or 50-— year or so. too close for comfort _ year or so. too close for comfort for— year or so. too close for comfort for the - year or so. too close for comfort for the people | year or so. too close for| comfort for the people of japan, wanting people to take shelter, for example, this is a very provocative move, isn't it? it very provocative move, isn't it? , �* �* , very provocative move, isn't it? , �* �*, i, very provocative move, isn't it? m a ., it? it is. but it's not exactly something _ it? it is. but it's not exactly something we _ it? it is. but it's not exactly something we can - it? it is. but it's not exactly something we can do. - it? it is. but it's not exactly something we can do. theyj it? it is. but it's not exactly - something we can do. they have launched missiles in the past,
five years ago was the last time, and your reporter mentioned, the japanese were encouraging people to go and take shelter, that is a new thing, it does raise tensions. but it is not very clear how we can stop them what we can really do, we cannot strike the sites where they launch, it is risky, and we talk about shooting down. north korea sanctioned pretty heavily. that is why these things keep happening, because the options are fairly poor. but happening, because the options are fairly poor.— are fairly poor. but also, as well, it was _ are fairly poor. but also, as well, it was north - are fairly poor. but also, as well, it was north korea . are fairly poor. but also, as i well, it was north korea back on the map will stop it is on our radar today at a time when it hasn't been for quite some time. all attention is focused on ukraine, on the conflict in europe, and also other matters in terms of global recession, whereas now north korea, they are very much back on the forefront of our thinking. yes, that is right. _ forefront of our thinking. yes, that is right. this _ forefront of our thinking. yes, that is right. this is _ forefront of our thinking. yes, that is right. this is i - forefront of our thinking. yes, that is right. this is i was - that is right. this is i was been issued with north korea, the perception that the north koreans, we know, don't like the perception that they are somehow the failed korea, that
the real korea in south korea and so on, so one of the things that these kind of things do is get us to pay attention. if the north koreans didn't have nuclear weapons missiles we wouldn't really pay attention to them terribly much, we would see them as a background state that had fallen out of the world economy and we wouldn't pay attention to often. as you said, this gets us talking about them, because people talk about them, because people talk about whether we should talk to them again or we should do sanctions or a au summit like that, keeps north korea sort of interesting, for your observation, that is correct. should talk to be back on the table? i should talk to be back on the table? ~ �* should talk to be back on the table? ~' �* , i, , table? i think the biden people would like _ table? i think the biden people would like to _ table? i think the biden people would like to do _ table? i think the biden people would like to do talks, - table? i think the biden people would like to do talks, and - would like to do talks, and others would like to them also. but the concern here and among the allies of japan and the united states as well is donald trump chai turgot taken for a ride. the north koreans didn't really offer much, they spent two makris document this with big summits and all that pageantry and excitement and nothing really came of it because, in part, the north koreans do not offer much. donald trump did not make much of an offer. 0ne
donald trump did not make much of an offer. one of the reasons the biden people did not want this is because they want put on the table is what the americans interested in, which is nuclear weapons and missiles, unless the north koreans want to do that, there's not really any reason to turn up. will they ever tres these things, will their ever given way, is anything they will trade for this stuff? and it looks like the answer is no. doctor kelly, thank you for your time. doctor kelly, thank you for your time-— doctor kelly, thank you for our time. ., ~ i, i, your time. thank you for having me. the bbc understands that kwasi kwarteng, the uk's chancellor of the exchequer, will bring forward the details of his plan to cut the country's debt, after he was criticised for saying he'd wait until the end of november. he's now expected to release the details, along with official forecasts for the economy, later this month. the move comes shortly after mr kwarteng reversed the widely criticised decision to give a tax cut to the top earners in england, wales, and northern ireland, a decision which had the full support of the prime minister, liz truss.
ifi if i can be frank, i know the plan put forward only ten days ago has caused a little turbulence. i get it. they get it. we are listening. and have listened. and now i want to focus on delivering the major parts of our growth package. because with energy bill's skyrocketing, a painful covid aftermath, war on our continent, a 70 year high tax burden, slowing global growth rates, and gleefully slow infrastructure delivery, we couldn't simply do nothing. we can't sit idly by. what britain needs more than ever is economic growth and the government wholly committed to economic growth. so the listening chancellor is expected to announce today that his medium—term economic plan will be announced with more detail with references from the
of the budget responsibility, all that is to come perhaps this month. we will talk to a leading economist in 20 minutes a time to unpick this further. although to come later in the programme. —— all that to come. let's get some of the day's other news. the first hearing of the uk public inquiry into the covid—19 pandemic will take place today. it will start with an examination of whether the risk of a coronavirus pandemic was properly identified and planned for. the former prime minister borisjohnson and former health secretary matt hancock are among those expected to be questioned. president biden has promised puerto rico that they'll get every dollar promised to them as the caribbean island recovers from the battering it suffered when hurricane fiona struck two weeks ago. it's thought at least 25 people died in the storm, which caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damage. president biden pledged an extra $60 million of federal aid to improve flood defences. the australian tennis star nick kyrgios has asked
to have an assault charge dismissed because of what his lawyer called his mental health struggles. the wimbledon finalist is accused of assaulting a former partner last year. kyrgios's lawyer told a court hearing in canberra that he'd made the application having reviewed his client's medical history. donald trump is suing the broadcaster cnn for defamation in a federal court in florida. the former us president is seeking $475 million in punitive damages. 0ur north america correspondent says donald trump and cnn have clashed continually for years and it's not the first time the former us president has threatened to sue the broadcaster. donald trump has used the phrase fake news in regard to all sorts of different media organisations here in the us but perhaps none more so than cnn which, together with the new york times, had become his bete noire, if you like, of media organisations.
he has filed this 29—page lawsuit in his home state of florida which accuses cnn of attempting to undermine his political ambitions. and increasing its attacks in recent months as speculation has grown that donald trump might run for office once again. but, in particular, this lawsuit draws attention to parallels which it says cnn presenters and reporters have drawn between the former president and adolf hitler, in particular, its use of the phrase "the big lie", which is the phrase cnn presenters have taken to using to address donald trump's claims that there was fraud on the 2020 election. the phrase was also used by adolf hitler to invoke violence against the jews. he is seeking $75,000 in compensatory damages and $470 million in punitive damages and will file similar lawsuits against other organisations in the weeks and months ahead. he's had mixed results in the past, he sued the new york times and the washington post a couple of years ago after those newspapers suggested he had some involvement in russia's attempt to undermine the result of the 2020 election.
one of those lawsuits was thrown out, another is still pending and, of course, he lost a lawsuit against twitter after it threw him off its social media platform. he threatened to sue cnn three years ago but never followed through and at the time, cnn described it as a pr stunt while it is yet to comment on this latest lawsuit. he said the new york times and the washing oppose a couple of years ago after they suggested he had something to do with russian attempts to undermine the result of the 2020 election. 0ne the result of the 2020 election. one of those lawsuits was thrown out, another is still pending. and, of course, he lost a lawsuit against twitter after it through him of its social media platform. he threatened to sue cnn three years ago but never followed through. at the time cnn described it as a pr stunt, while it has yet to comment on
this latest lawsuit. david willis there in north america for us. you are with bbc news. so much more still to come. the mars rover without a mission — and the scientists trying to prevent a decade of work going to waste. this was a celebration by people who were relishing their freedom. they believe everything's going to be different from now on, they think their country will be respected in the world once more, as it used to be, before slobodan milosevic took power. the dalai lama, the exiled spiritual leader of tibet, has won this year's nobel peace prize. as the parade _ was reaching its climax, two grenades exploded and a group of soldiersjumped from a military truck _ taking part in the parade and run towards the president, firing from — kalashnikov automatic rifles. after 437 years, the skeletal ribs of henry viii's tragic warship emerged. but even as divers worked to buoy her up, the mary rose went through another heart—stopping drama.

120 celsius and as cold as —230 so this will have to cope with extremes. there is also a problem with light. the moon get two weeks of daylight followed by two weeks of darkness, and this will be a challenge for solar power. and then there is the fine lunar dust. it is particularly clingy and abrasive which could be an issue for the rover�*s moving part. lunar exploration is having a resurgence right now. nesehs having a resurgence right now. neser�*s new artemis rockets will soon be heading there and eventually taking astronauts to the moon's surface. the idea is to have a permanent lunar base and rovers could play a crucial role. it and rovers could play a crucial role. .., , , and rovers could play a crucial role. , , ., , role. it could be used anywhere that ou role. it could be used anywhere that you want — role. it could be used anywhere that you want to _ role. it could be used anywhere that you want to do _ role. it could be used anywhere that you want to do something | that you want to do something autonomously, so it could be autonomously, so it could be autonomously moving around rovers for building habitats or it could be used for going to places that are uninhabitable ljy places that are uninhabitable by humans or in an extreme temperature or particularly dangerous, so anywhere that you

well for the likes of kim kardashian, we will be talking about her and the chancellor and the other top business stories stopping all of that is coming up here next, i will see you in a moment. hello there. according to data released by the met office on monday, across england and wales in september, we saw a first month of above average rainfall since february. this is the average line — notice how significantly low it was at times during the summer. problem is, to sort the drought issues out, we need more of what we had in september. and whilst we'll see some rain certainly across northern and western areas over the next few days, the south and east, not what we need — largely dry for one or two. heaviest of the rain is across those western areas, and by the end of wednesday we could see 30—80 millimetres of rain. by the end of the week, some parts of western scotland maybe as much as 200 millimetres. and that's because a supercharged jet stream will push in weather fronts like they do on tuesday, and that'll drop a lot of rainfall across those western areas. and starting tuesday, wet across parts of western
scotland, northern ireland, but very mild here, 14—15 celsius. fresher to the south and east, but not as cool as it was on monday morning. some southern and eastern areas will stay dry throughout the day, particularly east anglia, the southeast, and the channel islands. brightening up through scotland and parts of northern ireland as we go through tuesday. but southern scotland, maybe northern ireland, and certainly to northern england, we'll see outbreaks of rain develop — same too across north and west of wales, some of which will be on the heavy side. top and tail the country drier, but for all with winds — quite blustery in the morning, easing a bit into the afternoon coming in from the south, south west, it will be a mild one. and a mild night will follow the wind strengthening, touching gale force later across the west with more in the way of heavy and persistent rain developing. scotland, northwest england, wales again, probably likely to see that, but notice what a warm start it will be to wednesday morning, a warm and windy one gales in places. and this is a developing area of low pressure. now, if the development takes place after it leaves the uk, that's where we'll see
the strongest of the winds out into the north sea. but if it happens earlier, bear in mind winds, could be stronger. the cloud and more persistent rain for many will be during the morning, lingering longest into the afternoon, east anglia and the southeast. but most places on wednesday will brighten up to sunshine and blustery showers, some of those heavy and thundery. these are the average wind speeds — we could see gale force winds quite widely, particularly for parts of england and wales, even 50—60 mph gusts possible in the west. we'll keep you updated — all depends on how that low pressure develops. turning fresh into the north and west later on in the day after a very mild start, and that leaves us with a fresher end to the week, thursday and friday. very blustery, though, with frequent showers in the north and the west. bye for now.
