This is BBC News.

0:00:050:00:05

I'm Martine Croxall.

0:00:050:00:07

The headlines at 9pm...

0:00:070:00:13

Police launched a murder enquiry

into the death of another Russian

0:00:130:00:16

exile in London, they say there is

nothing to link this to the

0:00:160:00:20

poisoning in Salisbury. An

18-year-old is convicted of

0:00:200:00:23

attempted murder following the Tube

bombing in west London. Ahmed Hassan

0:00:230:00:28

was on the government's

anti-radicalisation programme,

0:00:280:00:31

Prevent.

On the face of it, he was

engaged in the programme but coming

0:00:310:00:36

back to his devious nature, he kept

it very secretive nature to what he

0:00:360:00:40

was planning as nobody around Jim

knew what his plot was.

0:00:400:00:43

Is the Beast back?

0:00:430:00:44

- snow, high winds and sub-zero

temperatures could mean

0:00:440:00:47

disruption for travellers.

0:00:470:00:48

Also this hour -

rescuers in Miami say

0:00:480:00:51

there are no more survivors

following yesterday's

0:00:510:00:53

bridge collapse.

0:00:530:00:56

At least six people died.

Authorities say the focus is on

0:00:560:01:01

recovering bodies buried beneath the

rubble. And in 30 minutes... The

0:01:010:01:06

right road ahead? The Transport

Secretary and sister will checks at

0:01:060:01:10

Dover after Brexit. Inside out

south-east asks how the plans stack

0:01:100:01:17

up... -- insists there will be no

border checks.

0:01:170:01:27

-- insists there will

be no border checks.

0:01:270:01:31

A murder inquiry has been launched

into the death of a Russian

0:01:310:01:34

businessman in London on Monday.

0:01:340:01:37

A post-mortem has concluded

Nikolai Glushkov died

0:01:370:01:39

from compression to the neck,

suggesting he was strangled.

0:01:390:01:42

Detectives say there's nothing

at this stage to link the murder

0:01:420:01:49

with the poisoning in Salisbury

of Sergei Skripal and his daughter.

0:01:490:01:53

Boris Johnson says he believes it's

'overwhelmingly likely' that

0:01:530:01:56

President Putin personally ordered

the attack on Mr Skripal.

0:01:560:01:58

The Kremlin has called his comments

shocking and unforgivable.

0:01:580:02:02

Our diplomatic correspondent

James Landale's report

0:02:020:02:03

contains flash photography.

0:02:030:02:05

Boris Johnson brought

the Polish Foreign Minister

0:02:050:02:08

to a Battle of Britain Museum today,

a memorial to a war

0:02:080:02:12

fought in the air.

0:02:120:02:14

Every single plane that Britain

had was up in the sky.

0:02:140:02:20

The Foreign Secretary used

the opportunity to push forward

0:02:200:02:24

Britain's current battle

with Russia, fought this

0:02:240:02:27

time over the airwaves,

blaming Vladimir Putin personally

0:02:270:02:29

for the nerve agent

attack in Salisbury.

0:02:290:02:34

Our quarrel is with Putin's Kremlin,

and with his decision.

0:02:340:02:37

And we think it overwhelmingly

likely that it was his decision

0:02:370:02:41

to direct the use of a nerve agent

on the streets of the UK,

0:02:410:02:45

the streets of Europe, for the first

time since the Second World War.

0:02:450:02:48

That is why we are

at odds with Russia.

0:02:480:02:54

The Kremlin spokesmen

issued an angry statement,

0:02:540:02:57

saying that mentioning

President Putin's name in connection

0:02:570:03:03

with the attack was shocking and

unpardonable diplomatic misconduct.

0:03:030:03:07

The Kremlin also confirmed that some

British diplomats based

0:03:070:03:09

at the embassy in Moscow would be

expelled, and that an announcement

0:03:090:03:12

could come at any moment.

0:03:120:03:14

It is retaliation for the UK's

decision to expel 23 Russian

0:03:140:03:17

intelligence officers who will leave

London next Tuesday.

0:03:170:03:23

Again, Russia's Foreign Minister

denied any involvement

0:03:230:03:24

in the Salisbury attack.

0:03:250:03:28

TRANSLATION: I don't want to comment

on the current situation.

0:03:280:03:32

Let it stay on the conscience

of those who have started this

0:03:320:03:36

shameless, groundless business.

0:03:360:03:40

And as for the language

of the Defence Secretary?

0:03:400:03:45

TRANSLATION: He says Russia should

go away and shut up.

0:03:450:03:47

Maybe he lacks education.

0:03:470:03:49

I don't know.

0:03:490:03:52

Officials at the Foreign Office

believe the robustness of Britain's

0:03:520:03:55

response and the unity

of the Western allies

0:03:550:03:57

has surprised Russia,

and they say they are ready for any

0:03:570:04:02

retaliation coming from Moscow.

0:04:020:04:05

As one source said, we have more

stuff in the locker.

0:04:050:04:10

But amid the diplomatic war

of words, the Metropolitan Police

0:04:100:04:13

announced that a Russian businessman

who had been found dead

0:04:130:04:16

at his South West London home

on Monday, had been murdered.

0:04:160:04:19

The 68-year-old Nikolai Glushkov

was a former associate of known

0:04:190:04:22

opponents of President Putin.

0:04:220:04:25

Detectives said they were keeping

an open mind but there

0:04:250:04:28

was nothing to link his death

to the nerve agent attack.

0:04:280:04:32

In Salisbury, two weeks on,

police were still in protective gear

0:04:320:04:36

in investigating the attempted

murder of the former Russian

0:04:360:04:38

intelligence officer

Sergei Skripal and his daughter,

0:04:380:04:41

Yulia, still making

the streets safe.

0:04:410:04:51

Simon Jones is outside

Nikolai Glushkov's house

0:04:510:04:53

in New Malden and has this update.

0:04:530:04:59

Police activity continues here at

the home of Mr Glushkov, as it has

0:04:590:05:02

throughout the week since his body

was discovered here on Monday

0:05:020:05:08

evening. The amount of police

activity throughout the week is

0:05:080:05:10

always suggested this was perhaps

more than an unexplained death, as

0:05:100:05:15

it has been labelled by the

Metropolitan Police at the start of

0:05:150:05:19

the week. Today we got confirmation

that the net are treating this as a

0:05:190:05:24

merger. Russian authorities during

the course of the afternoon through

0:05:240:05:30

the investigations committee first

labelled this as murder and they

0:05:300:05:35

next gave further details, the Met,

saying they were called to run

0:05:350:05:39

Monday evening and they called on

the counter unit because of

0:05:390:05:44

associations Mr Glushkov has had in

the past and a postmortem was

0:05:440:05:48

carried out yesterday and today it

was revealed the cause of death was

0:05:480:05:52

compression to the neck and at that

point the police were prepared to

0:05:520:05:56

said they believed this was possibly

a merger. They are stressing that at

0:05:560:06:00

the moment they see no direct links

to the events in Salisbury and they

0:06:000:06:04

say there is no question as far as

they are concerned of anybody being

0:06:040:06:08

poisoned here but they are concerned

with the links he has had with

0:06:080:06:12

Russia and the fact that he was

jailed in Russia for fraud and

0:06:120:06:18

money-laundering and he sought exile

in this country. He was also a

0:06:180:06:22

critic of President Putin and has

associated himself with other

0:06:220:06:25

critics of President Putin. That is

why so many questions have been

0:06:250:06:29

raised here and we have seen

officers coming and going throughout

0:06:290:06:32

the evening into those tents behind

me so still the search is very much

0:06:320:06:38

ongoing at the home here, as the

police seek further answers.

Simon

0:06:380:06:42

Jones reporting.

0:06:420:06:45

Our World Affairs Correspondent

Richard Galpin is in

0:06:450:06:47

Moscow with the latest

on the murder investigation.

0:06:470:06:49

This is another very

dramatic development,

0:06:490:06:50

the fact that British police believe

that yet another Russian exile,

0:06:500:06:54

someone else who was granted asylum

in Britain, is believed

0:06:540:06:57

to have been murdered.

0:06:570:07:02

The British police are launching

what they say is a murder

0:07:020:07:04

investigation into the death

of Nikolai Glushkov.

0:07:040:07:09

Mr Glushkov is someone who fled

to Britain 14 years ago.

0:07:090:07:14

He had been put in prison in Russia

prior to that for about five years.

0:07:140:07:24

The key points or one of the key

points is that he was a close

0:07:240:07:28

associate of Boris Berezovsky,

a friend and he helped to run one

0:07:280:07:31

of his companies while in Russia.

0:07:310:07:38

Boris Berezovsky was certainly

viewed by the Kremlin

0:07:380:07:44

and Putin as being enemy number one.

0:07:440:07:50

Berezovsky himself died

about four or five years ago.

0:07:500:07:57

That was deemed to be

suicide by many people,

0:07:570:08:03

although at his inquest

there were questions

0:08:030:08:05

about this and one forensic

0:08:050:08:06

scientist appeared dramatically

towards the end of the inquest

0:08:060:08:08

to say that he believed that he had

not committed suicide

0:08:080:08:11

and he had been strangled.

0:08:110:08:14

In the case of Mr Glushkov,

the British police say that he did

0:08:140:08:16

die from compression to the neck.

0:08:160:08:18

The investigation does go

on but this is another very

0:08:180:08:23

important development amidst this

febrile atmosphere in relations

0:08:230:08:25

between London and Moscow.

0:08:250:08:33

Particularly after the comments

of Boris Johnson, in which he

0:08:330:08:38

directly accused Putin

of being involved in

0:08:380:08:39

the poisoning in Salisbury.

0:08:390:08:40

Richard Galpin

reporting from Moscow.

0:08:400:08:44

An Iraqi teenager who sought asylum

in the UK as a child has been found

0:08:440:08:48

guilty of the London tube bombing

at Parson's Green.

0:08:480:08:50

18-year-old Ahmed Hassan

left his bomb on a packed

0:08:500:08:52

underground train during rush hour.

0:08:520:08:56

The device only partially detonated

but injured 50 people.

0:08:560:08:59

It's emerged that Hassan

was on the government's

0:08:590:09:02

deradicalisation programme,

Prevent, while he was

0:09:020:09:04

plotting the attack.

0:09:040:09:06

The government says

there are lessons to be

0:09:060:09:08

learned from the case.

0:09:080:09:09

June Kelly reports.

0:09:090:09:12

Ahmed Hassan buying batteries

and screwdrivers in Asda -

0:09:120:09:16

everyday items but, for a violent

extremist, part of

0:09:160:09:18

his bomb-making kit.

0:09:180:09:20

He's asked for ID.

0:09:200:09:22

He may have looked young but Hassan

is said to be mature,

0:09:220:09:25

highly intelligent and calculating.

0:09:250:09:29

CCTV cameras captured his journey

as the following morning he left

0:09:290:09:32

home early with his bomb in a bag

and a murderous plan in his head.

0:09:320:09:38

He was setting off to cause carnage

on the London Underground system.

0:09:380:09:42

He made for a train and then,

a few stops down the District Line,

0:09:420:09:46

he got off, empty-handed,

his bomb on a timer left behind.

0:09:460:09:52

Just after the train pulled

into Parsons Green station,

0:09:520:09:56

the bomb detonated, creating

a massive fireball which rolled

0:09:560:09:58

down the carriage.

0:09:580:10:03

Passengers were left burning

and screaming in pain.

0:10:030:10:06

A gassy flare ran up

above my head, singed my hair.

0:10:060:10:10

There was panic all

around me on the train.

0:10:100:10:17

People were diving off the train.

0:10:170:10:22

Fortunately the doors were open

so I managed to get off the train.

0:10:220:10:25

My initial reaction was that there

was a fault on the train

0:10:250:10:28

rather than a device.

0:10:280:10:29

Hassan had strapped

shrapnel to the device -

0:10:290:10:31

nuts, bolts, screws and knives

to cause maximum death and injury.

0:10:310:10:33

It was said to be pure luck that his

bomb only partially exploded.

0:10:330:10:36

This computer-generated

graphic shows the scene

0:10:360:10:38

in the carriage after the attack.

0:10:380:10:41

He had used the explosive TATP,

known as Mother of Satan.

0:10:410:10:47

At Parsons Green a major emergency

operation got under way.

0:10:470:10:50

Terrified passengers

were taken off the train,

0:10:500:10:53

injured commuters carried out

of the station.

0:10:530:10:57

Meanwhile, the teenage bomber left

London and went on the run.

0:10:570:11:01

The year before he declared

it was his duty to hate Britain

0:11:010:11:05

because his father had been killed

by coalition forces in Iraq.

0:11:050:11:09

At the time of his attack

he was on the government's

0:11:090:11:12

de-radicalisation programme,

Prevent, aimed at turning people

0:11:120:11:13

away from terrorism.

0:11:130:11:17

He was very cunning and devious and,

on the face of it, Hassan

0:11:170:11:21

was engaged on the programme

but coming back to his devious

0:11:210:11:24

nature, he kept it very secretive

in relation to what he was doing,

0:11:240:11:27

what he was planning,

and nobody around him actually

0:11:270:11:29

knew what his plot was.

0:11:290:11:32

24 hours on from the attack,

firearms officers were surrounding

0:11:320:11:35

Hassan's house in Sunbury in Surrey.

0:11:350:11:38

Inside were his petrified

elderly foster parents,

0:11:380:11:39

Penny and Ron Jones.

0:11:390:11:45

This was a couple who had received

MBEs from the Queen for fostering

0:11:450:11:48

hundreds of children.

0:11:490:11:51

Ahmed Hassan repaid them

for giving him a home by secretly

0:11:510:11:53

building a bomb in their kitchen.

0:11:530:11:56

And it came out in court

that the teenager staying

0:11:560:12:02

in their spare bedroom had told

immigration officials he had been

0:12:020:12:05

kidnapped and trained to kill

by the Islamic State group.

0:12:050:12:07

It is understood the Joneses

were not given his full story.

0:12:070:12:12

After the bombing,

Hassan headed for Dover.

0:12:120:12:16

He was arrested as he tried to flee

the country which had given him

0:12:160:12:19

a home and an education

but for which he felt only hatred.

0:12:190:12:23

He will be sentenced next week.

0:12:230:12:27

Severe weather warnings for snow

and ice are in place for parts

0:12:290:12:32

of the UK this weekend.

0:12:320:12:34

The Met Office has forecast snow

for the eastern side of the UK

0:12:340:12:37

and temperatures could drop by 10

degress across the

0:12:370:12:39

country by Saturday.

0:12:400:12:41

Forecasters say that although it's

the same Siberian weather

0:12:410:12:45

as the "Beast from the East",

the disruption

0:12:450:12:47

will not last as long.

0:12:470:12:51

Philip Avery has been comparing

the forthcoming subzero temperatures

0:12:510:12:57

with the balmy climate

of the past few days.

0:12:570:13:07

14.6 degrees in Northolt,

16 yesterday in Porthmadog.

0:13:080:13:09

Maybe more.

0:13:100:13:16

In the north, the

north-east, eastern in

0:13:160:13:18

Scotland, they have had

a weather front giving

0:13:180:13:20

temperatures closer

to

0:13:200:13:21

5 degrees, miserable and that

weather front is important.

0:13:210:13:23

Some interesting graphics...

0:13:230:13:24

Have a look at this!

0:13:240:13:25

Here is one that I made earlier!

0:13:250:13:27

That area of low pressure

in the Atlantic was a dominant

0:13:270:13:31

feature across us for a good part

of the past week but this is the

0:13:310:13:35

weekend.

0:13:350:13:37

And that high pressure,

if you follow those isobars from

0:13:370:13:41

northern Scandinavia,

across the cold North Sea,

0:13:410:13:43

all that cold air picking up

the moisture from the

0:13:430:13:46

North Sea and I suspect

you know what comes next.

0:13:460:13:48

As early as tonight,

as you have suggested in

0:13:480:13:50

the introduction, we

will see that weather

0:13:500:13:52

front tumbling across

the

0:13:520:13:53

British Isles, persistent snow

across southern England and Wales,

0:13:530:13:55

through Saturday morning.

0:13:550:14:01

Becoming more showery

but snow showers and

0:14:010:14:07

all the while, because of that

easterly further north, there is a

0:14:070:14:12

complete supply of snow showers

running from the North Sea and the

0:14:120:14:15

eastern side of Scotland

and England, absolutely exposed.

0:14:150:14:23

Given the strength of the wind,

temperatures feeling like -6, -7 or

0:14:230:14:25

-8, some of those snow showers will

get across the Midlands and into

0:14:250:14:29

Wales, particularly eastern Wales.

0:14:290:14:31

The father of a female engineering

student allegedly attacked

0:14:310:14:34

by a group of women in Nottingham

has called for "justice"

0:14:340:14:36

for his daughter.

0:14:370:14:38

18-year-old Mariam Moustafa died

on Wednesday, nearly a month

0:14:380:14:40

after she was assaulted on a bus

in the city centre.

0:14:400:14:43

Nottinghamshire Police says

there is nothing to suggest

0:14:430:14:45

it was a hate crime,

although they are

0:14:450:14:47

"keeping an open mind".

0:14:470:14:49

Sima Kotecha sent us

the latest from Nottingham.

0:14:490:14:55

18-year-old Mariam Moustafa, an

engineering student in Nottingham.

0:14:550:14:59

Her family are from Egypt and came

here for a better life.

0:14:590:15:03

Her sister and father

described her as loving,

0:15:030:15:06

cheerful and intelligent.

0:15:060:15:09

Mariam was always looking

up, looking forward

0:15:090:15:11

for being in engineering.

0:15:110:15:12

She was a hard worker.

0:15:120:15:14

She always put all her effort

to being in engineering.

0:15:140:15:20

In February, as the teenager

was making her way to see her mother

0:15:200:15:23

and sister, she was attacked.

0:15:230:15:26

She caught a bus on this street

to try to get away from the girls.

0:15:260:15:29

However, they followed her.

0:15:290:15:31

Police say she was

punched several times.

0:15:310:15:33

She died on Wednesday.

0:15:330:15:36

This footage on social media shows

what happened on the bus.

0:15:360:15:41

You move out of my way,

you move out of my way!

0:15:430:15:49

Yesterday, police said there was no

information at this stage

0:15:490:15:52

to suggest it was a hate crime

but that they were

0:15:520:15:54

keeping an open mind.

0:15:550:15:58

She was discharged from hospital

after the attack but then she fell

0:15:580:16:01

ill and was readmitted.

0:16:010:16:03

That's when she went into a coma.

0:16:030:16:06

The family gave us these pictures.

0:16:060:16:10

For me to now think that she's gone,

I still feel like she's around me,

0:16:100:16:19

I feel like she's going to come

knocking on the door.

0:16:190:16:21

But that's not happening.

0:16:210:16:29

The Egyptian government,

as well as her family,

0:16:290:16:31

have called on the UK authorities

to bring those who did

0:16:310:16:33

this to justice quickly.

0:16:330:16:35

A 17-year-old girl was arrested

on suspicion of assault but has been

0:16:350:16:38

released on conditional bail.

0:16:390:16:42

In a tweet this afternoon,

the Foreign Secretary,

0:16:420:16:44

Boris Johnson, assured the Egyptian

authorities that Nottinghamshire

0:16:440:16:48

Police was investigating the case.

0:16:520:17:00

Before the headlines, some breaking

news... Kent Police say officers are

0:17:000:17:07

investigating a fatal collision that

happened in Thanet. This is an

0:17:070:17:12

accident that happened on the 3rd of

February, police called to report

0:17:120:17:15

that a private ambulance overturned

in Ramsgate. In the early hours of

0:17:150:17:21

the morning on Saturday the 3rd of

February, the vehicle travelling

0:17:210:17:25

from the Minster roundabout and the

collision took place nearby. There

0:17:250:17:28

was a patient in the ambulance, a

66-year-old man, who died the

0:17:280:17:33

following day and two others

sustained injuries. It is only now

0:17:330:17:38

being treated as a fatal collision

because of further tests and

0:17:380:17:42

postmortem examinations were carried

out by the serious collision

0:17:420:17:46

investigation. A fatal collision

being investigated by Kent Police

0:17:460:17:50

and they are keen to hear from

anyone who has not yet spoken to

0:17:500:17:53

them about that accident. The

headlines... Police launch a murder

0:17:530:17:58

enquiry into the death of another

Russian exile in London, they say

0:17:580:18:02

there is nothing linking the death

to the poisoning in Salisbury.

0:18:020:18:06

Sergei Skripal and his daughter are

still critical in hospital and the

0:18:060:18:10

Foreign Secretary blames Vladimir

Putin for the attack. 18-year-old

0:18:100:18:13

Ahmed Hassan is convicted of

attempted murder following the

0:18:130:18:17

London Tube bombing. It has emerged

that he was on the government's

0:18:170:18:21

de-radicalisation problem. --

0:18:210:18:29

Hello. Fifa have formally approved

this evening the use of Video

0:18:290:18:35

Assistant Referees for the World

Cup. The council gave the green

0:18:350:18:41

light to the system at a meeting

today after trialling this at two

0:18:410:18:45

tournaments over the past two years.

VAR is already used in Germany and

0:18:450:18:49

Italy won the FA Cup adopted this

season. There are some teething

0:18:490:18:55

problems but their FIFA President

has said we need to live with The

0:18:550:18:58

Times. Jose Mourinho has launched an

astonishing 12 minute defence of Man

0:18:580:19:04

United being knocked out of the

Champions League this week. They

0:19:040:19:07

lost at home to Sevilla with the

performance hugely criticised,

0:19:070:19:10

particularly by the fans. He ranted

uninterrupted at a press conference

0:19:100:19:16

today, using notes Chewbacca biz

points about United's recent record

0:19:160:19:18

in Europe and the Premier League,

which he claims should put the

0:19:180:19:23

defeat in a different light.

I am

not going to cry. Because I heard a

0:19:230:19:32

few boos, I will not disappear from

the tunnel, running admittedly. The

0:19:320:19:37

next match, I will be first to go

out. Then I was 20 years old I was

0:19:370:19:42

nobody in football and now, at 55, I

am what I am and I did what I did

0:19:420:19:47

because of work, because of my

talent and my mentality. I could be

0:19:470:19:52

in another country with the league

in the pocket. The count of league

0:19:520:19:56

that you win even before it starts,

but I am not, I'm here.

The door for

0:19:560:20:02

the Champions League quarterfinals

went on without Mourinho and Man

0:20:020:20:06

United and its biggest rivals were

drawn together, Liverpool and Man

0:20:060:20:10

City facing each other in the last

eight of the competition. The

0:20:100:20:14

quarterfinalists are taken from the

top four leagues in Europe, a repeat

0:20:140:20:17

of the final last year the Juventus

and Real Madrid and Barcelona and

0:20:170:20:23

Bayern Munich will be strong

favourites. The games take place in

0:20:230:20:27

successive weeks in April. The

Europa league draws... The

0:20:270:20:30

favourites kept apart, Atletico

Madrid drawn with Sporting Lisbon

0:20:300:20:37

and Arsenal face CSKA Moscow at a

time of strained relations between

0:20:370:20:41

Britain and Russia. After a week of

Irish domination at Cheltenham, the

0:20:410:20:44

Gold Cup provided an epic duel

between two English trained horses.

0:20:440:20:49

Native driver -- native river beat

Mite Bite. Both led throughout,

0:20:490:20:58

stride for stride for 22 fences,

more than three miles, before native

0:20:580:21:05

river pulled away after the final

jump, conquering the field and the

0:21:050:21:09

soft ground to improve on his third

place of last year. Champion jockey

0:21:090:21:14

Richard Johnson's second Gold Cup of

his career and a first for the

0:21:140:21:17

trainer, who prevented Nicky

Henderson winning the historic

0:21:170:21:23

treble of Champions Trophy, champion

chase and Gold Cup in the same year.

0:21:230:21:27

Richard Johnson was brilliant on

that horse, I do not think many Gold

0:21:270:21:32

cup winners do all the running and

jumping and you could see him

0:21:320:21:36

setting up the jobs, about six

strides out. That is a very long

0:21:360:21:40

stride and the horse would come

every time. He is away from the

0:21:400:21:45

fence very quickly as well. In

racing, that is very important.

And

0:21:450:21:53

he stays very well. A big day for

Colin Tizzard at Cheltenham. Much

0:21:530:21:58

more on the website. You can watch

the full 12 minute rant from Jose

0:21:580:22:04

Mourinho. We don't have time to play

it here but there is enough time to

0:22:040:22:10

bring you all of the sports news at

10:30pm... Spoilsport! Thank you

0:22:100:22:15

very much. We will see you later.

0:22:150:22:20

In Florida at least six people have

been killed after a newly built

0:22:200:22:23

bridge collapsed onto a busy

road in Miami.

0:22:230:22:25

The bridge had been put up in six

hours just six days ago

0:22:250:22:28

using a method called "accelerated

construction" to avoid

0:22:280:22:30

traffic disruption.

0:22:310:22:31

Ten people have been taken

to hospital and the emergency

0:22:310:22:33

services have been working

at the scene since last night.

0:22:330:22:36

Here's how the disaster unfolded.

0:22:360:22:37

The bridge at FIU just

collapsed out of nowhere.

0:22:400:22:42

There's cars stuck under there.

0:22:420:22:44

We tried to get people

out but we couldn't.

0:22:590:23:01

They were all stuck.

0:23:020:23:03

Two construction

workers also fell from

0:23:030:23:05

the crane.

0:23:050:23:06

I mean, it was horrible,

it was a disaster.

0:23:060:23:09

What I saw was it

slowly coming down,

0:23:090:23:11

and the dust and the cement just

shattering on top of the cars.

0:23:110:23:16

We exhausted last night

all of our search and rescue

0:23:270:23:30

capabilities in the hopes

of finding additional survivors.

0:23:300:23:34

We used auditory, we used visual,

we used our canines,

0:23:340:23:39

and we determined that there is no

longer any

0:23:390:23:41

survivors.

0:23:410:23:42

That's why we transitioned

into this recovery mode.

0:23:420:23:52

South Africa's former president,

Jacob Zuma, has been

0:23:550:23:57

charged with corruption,

a month after he was ousted.

0:23:570:24:00

Mr Zuma denies the charges, which

relate to a multi-billion-dollar

0:24:000:24:03

arms deal completed in the 1990s.

0:24:030:24:08

The French arms manufacturer Thales

has also been charged.

0:24:080:24:11

From Johanesberg,

Milton Nkosi reports.

0:24:110:24:19

The call for Jacob Zuma to have his

day in court has been a long time

0:24:190:24:22

coming.

0:24:220:24:23

He is facing 16 charges

of corruption, including fraud,

0:24:230:24:25

racketeering, and money-laundering.

0:24:250:24:29

The charges had been controversially

set aside nine years ago.

0:24:290:24:31

Paving the way for Mr Zuma

to become president.

0:24:310:24:37

The prosecuting authority says it

has more than 200 witnesses

0:24:370:24:39

lined up for this case.

0:24:390:24:42

This is going to be a long

and complicated trial.

0:24:420:24:48

After consideration of the matter,

I am of the view that there

0:24:480:24:52

are reasonable prospects

of a successful prosecution

0:24:520:25:00

of Mr Zuma on charges

listed in the indictment.

0:25:000:25:03

This case dates back

to the early 90s, when the state

0:25:030:25:06

purchased fighter jets,

patrol boats and other arms

0:25:060:25:15

in a massive defence overhaul now

known as the arms deal.

0:25:150:25:17

The charges relate to allegations

that Mr Zuma solicited bribes

0:25:170:25:20

for his personal benefit

from a French arms company

0:25:200:25:24

through his financial

adviser, Mr Shaikh.

0:25:240:25:26

He was tried and found

guilty of corruption.

0:25:260:25:30

Back in 2005.

0:25:300:25:31

But the former president has always

maintained his innocence.

0:25:310:25:35

This is what he told me

when I asked him about these

0:25:350:25:38

corruption allegations back in 2012.

0:25:380:25:40

There's nothing to clear my name of.

0:25:400:25:43

Absolutely.

0:25:430:25:45

Nothing.

0:25:450:25:47

Mr Zuma is no stranger

to controversy.

0:25:470:25:51

Two years ago he was ordered

by the highest court in the land

0:25:510:25:54

to repay some of the public money

used for security upgrades

0:25:540:25:57

at his private residence

in a rural location.

0:25:570:26:06

The current charges he is facing

have nothing to do with his latest

0:26:060:26:10

corruption scandal,

involving his relationship

0:26:100:26:11

with the controversial Gupta family.

0:26:110:26:13
