Haiti's ambassador to the UK has
told the BBC he believes Oxfam did
try to cover up details of the use
of prostitutes by some of its aid
workers in the aftermath
of the 2010 earthquake.
Oxfam's chief executive admits
they could have been more open,
but insisted there was no cover-up.
Downing Street says
the government is reviewing
its relationship with the charity.
Angus Crawford has more details.
It was an earthquake
that devastated Haiti,
killing more than 200,000 people,
affecting millions more.
Aid agencies from around the world
stepped into the chaos.
Oxfam, with more than 70 years'
experience, had hundreds
of staff in the field.
But an investigation
by the Times found that in 2011,
four staff members were sacked
and three others resigned over
allegations of misconduct,
including paying local
women for sex.
The NGO says it launched
an investigation and kept
the Charity Commission fully
the commission now disputes.
Oxfam's leadership denies
there's been a cover-up.
Oxfam was actually proactive
in going to the British
public, the Department
for International Development,
and the Charity Commission,
to explain that there had been
and we'd taken action.
More than £30 million of taxpayers'
money is given to Oxfam
by the government every year.
Today, Downing Street called
the allegations truly
shocking and demanded a full
and urgent investigation.
Today, fresh claims,
some of the disgraced staff got jobs
at other aid agencies because Oxfam
failed to warn them
about the misconduct.
It is clear it's a cover-up case.
The fact that those folks
were allowed to leave the country
without any punishment,
without even informing the Haitian
authorities about that.
It was a cover-up.
Haiti wants Oxfam to hand over
all relevant documents,
so justice can be served there.
The behaviour of a few has stained
the charity's past reputation
and now threatens its work
in the future.
An Israeli fighter jet has crashed
after coming under fire,
while attacking Iranian
forces in Syria.
The two-man crew ejected and one
is said to be seriously injured.
The F-16 was part of an air raid

and has threatened to retaliate.
The Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson
is in Bangladesh, where he's been
meeting Rohingya refugees,
who have escaped violence
in neighbouring Myanmar.
Nearly 700,000 people have been
forced to leave their homes,
after a military crackdown began
six months ago.
Reeta Chakrabarti is travelling
with the Foreign Secretary.
Cries of "welcome" to a guest
from a people who have been
kicked out of their home.
We're going to try and get
you back home, guys.
Boris Johnson came to see and hear
himself from the victims of this
huge man-made disaster.
He heard story after story
of arson, rape and murder.
Committed, say the Rohingya
victims, by the military
and Buddhist mobs in Myanmar.
I'm very sorry.
What do you think of
what you've heard so far?
Well, it's overwhelming
and obviously these people have seen
some pretty horrifying things
and you're very conscious
when talking to them,
the young people, you don't
want to trigger terrible
memories for them.
It was very clear with the case
of the guy who'd only narrowly
escaped and who'd almost
lost his daughter, who'd
been beaten, and had
to ransom his daughter back.
He kept breaking down in tears.
The people that Boris Johnson
is meeting here are all in limbo.
Bangladesh doesn't want
them here permanently
but they can't go back to Myanmar
without guarantees of safety.
So what can Britain do to help?
It's about finding a political
solution, finding an answer
in Myanmar, from Burma,
creating the conditions for a safe,
dignified return for these people.
That's what they want.
They do want to go back
but they don't feel safe.
That's the message the Foreign
Secretary is taking to Myanmar,
where he landed tonight.
He admits a safe return
for the Rohingya presently
It's a very tough diplomatic
battle he has to fight.
The father of an 11-year-ld

Jeremy Corbyn has promised to bring
a large number of privatised
utilities back into public control.
The Labour leader told a conference
in London that the UK
should be following "a global tide
of public ownership."
We need to put Britain
at the forefront of the wave
of international change,
in favour of public,
democratic ownership and control
of our services and utilities.
From India to Canada,
across the world, people are waking
up to the fact that privatisation
has failed and taking back control
of their public services.
North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un has
invited the South Korean
president for talks
at the "earliest date possible."
The historic invitation was given
by Kim Jong-un's sister,
who's visiting the South
for the Winter Olympics.
If talks do take place, they'd be
the first in more than a decade
between Korean leaders.
With all the action
from the Winter Olympics
and the rest of a busy day of sport,
let's join Lizzie Greenwood Hughes
at the BBC Sport Centre.
There is a huge mess going on at
There is a huge mess going on at
Twickenham in the rugby for the Six
Nations Championship, England
against Wales, England, 12, Wales,
three, just before half-time.
Ireland thumping Italy 56-19, Jacob
Stockdale scoring two of their eight
tries in Dublin as Ireland topped
the table. Eight tries and the stoop
where the England teenager helped
the defending champions demolish
Wales 52-0. Scotland playing France
They say there's no place like home
and after moving into Wembley at the
beginning of the season Tottenham
seemed to have the place the way
they like it, unbeaten at the
National Stadium since October last
year. Now time to invite the
neighbours around. In front of a
record-breaking crowd the first 45
minutes were his dismal as the
weather, Harry Kane with the only
chance before the break. Minutes
into the second half the Premier
League 's top goal-scorer rose to
the occasion to score his seventh
goal in seven games against Arsenal.
Despite the Tottenham dominance they
failed to capitalise on their
chances. Petr Cech appeared at times
to single-handedly be keeping the
visitors in the game. Further agony
for Arsenal as Lacazette missed a
golden opportunity in the final
minutes of the game. A crushing blow
to Arsene Wenger's top four hopes as
Spurs go seven points clear of their
north London rivals.
The former Republic of Ireland
midfielder Liam Miller has
died at the age of 36.
He had cancer.
There was a minute's silence before
Celtic's Scottish Cup win over
Partick Thistle to remember Miller
who'd played for Celtic
as well as Manchester United.
The Winter Olympics in South Korea

skater Elise Christie is safely
through to the quarter-finals
of the 500m short track.

reports from Pyonchang.
She is Britain's biggest medal hope.
Christie going to the front.
Christie was soon showing why,
leading her 500 metres heat from
start to finish, setting a new
Christie wins it.
Some statement of intent. After her
disqualification in the last Games,
So nervous. I thought
maybe I'm not going to do it but it
was fine. I got to the line, I was
excited and I'm glad I got in front
of everyone again.
But British roads
in the snowboarding came crashing
Jamie Nicholls and
then his team-mate Billy Morgan both
tumbled out of the slopestyle event.
In the women's cross-country skiing,
the first gold medal when of the
game, for Sweden's Charlotte Kalla.
£14 is was a day of mixed fortunes,
disappointment on the snow but Elise
Christie's hopes for gold are off to
the perfect start -- for Team GB
this was a day of mixed fortunes.
