Good evening.

0:00:210:00:24

Haiti's ambassador to the UK has

told the BBC he believes Oxfam did

0:00:240:00:32

try to cover up details of the use

of prostitutes by some of its aid

0:00:320:00:36

workers in the aftermath

of the 2010 earthquake.

0:00:360:00:39

Oxfam's chief executive admits

they could have been more open,

0:00:390:00:41

but insisted there was no cover-up.

0:00:410:00:42

Downing Street says

the government is reviewing

0:00:420:00:44

its relationship with the charity.

0:00:440:00:45

Angus Crawford has more details.

0:00:450:00:49

It was an earthquake

that devastated Haiti,

0:00:490:00:54

killing more than 200,000 people,

affecting millions more.

0:00:540:00:59

Aid agencies from around the world

stepped into the chaos.

0:00:590:01:03

Oxfam, with more than 70 years'

experience, had hundreds

0:01:030:01:05

of staff in the field.

0:01:050:01:10

But an investigation

by the Times found that in 2011,

0:01:100:01:15

four staff members were sacked

and three others resigned over

0:01:150:01:18

allegations of misconduct,

including paying local

0:01:180:01:19

women for sex.

0:01:190:01:23

The NGO says it launched

an investigation and kept

0:01:230:01:26

the Charity Commission fully

informed, something

0:01:260:01:30

the commission now disputes.

0:01:300:01:32

Oxfam's leadership denies

there's been a cover-up.

0:01:320:01:37

Oxfam was actually proactive

in going to the British

0:01:370:01:39

public, the Department

for International Development,

0:01:390:01:44

and the Charity Commission,

to explain that there had been

0:01:440:01:46

serious misconduct

and we'd taken action.

0:01:460:01:51

More than £30 million of taxpayers'

money is given to Oxfam

0:01:510:01:53

by the government every year.

0:01:530:01:55

Today, Downing Street called

the allegations truly

0:01:550:01:58

shocking and demanded a full

and urgent investigation.

0:01:580:02:04

Today, fresh claims,

some of the disgraced staff got jobs

0:02:040:02:06

at other aid agencies because Oxfam

failed to warn them

0:02:060:02:09

about the misconduct.

0:02:090:02:14

It is clear it's a cover-up case.

0:02:140:02:18

The fact that those folks

were allowed to leave the country

0:02:180:02:22

without any punishment,

without even informing the Haitian

0:02:220:02:25

authorities about that.

0:02:250:02:27

It was a cover-up.

0:02:270:02:29

Haiti wants Oxfam to hand over

all relevant documents,

0:02:290:02:35

so justice can be served there.

0:02:350:02:37

The behaviour of a few has stained

the charity's past reputation

0:02:370:02:40

and now threatens its work

in the future.

0:02:400:02:48

An Israeli fighter jet has crashed

after coming under fire,

0:02:490:02:52

while attacking Iranian

forces in Syria.

0:02:520:02:56

The two-man crew ejected and one

is said to be seriously injured.

0:02:560:03:00

The F-16 was part of an air raid

on a drone base inside Syria,

0:03:000:03:04

after Israel claimed an Iranian

drone entered its airspace.

0:03:040:03:07

The government in Damascus has

accused Israel of terrorism,

0:03:070:03:09

and has threatened to retaliate.

0:03:090:03:14

The Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson

is in Bangladesh, where he's been

0:03:140:03:18

meeting Rohingya refugees,

who have escaped violence

0:03:180:03:19

in neighbouring Myanmar.

0:03:190:03:24

Nearly 700,000 people have been

forced to leave their homes,

0:03:240:03:26

after a military crackdown began

six months ago.

0:03:260:03:28

Reeta Chakrabarti is travelling

with the Foreign Secretary.

0:03:280:03:35

Cries of "welcome" to a guest

from a people who have been

0:03:350:03:37

kicked out of their home.

0:03:370:03:42

We're going to try and get

you back home, guys.

0:03:420:03:44

Boris Johnson came to see and hear

himself from the victims of this

0:03:440:03:47

huge man-made disaster.

0:03:470:03:51

He heard story after story

of arson, rape and murder.

0:03:510:03:59

Committed, say the Rohingya

victims, by the military

0:03:590:04:01

and Buddhist mobs in Myanmar.

0:04:010:04:09

I'm very sorry.

0:04:090:04:11

What do you think of

what you've heard so far?

0:04:110:04:14

Well, it's overwhelming

and obviously these people have seen

0:04:140:04:16

some pretty horrifying things

and you're very conscious

0:04:160:04:18

when talking to them,

the young people, you don't

0:04:180:04:21

want to trigger terrible

memories for them.

0:04:210:04:24

It was very clear with the case

of the guy who'd only narrowly

0:04:240:04:28

escaped and who'd almost

lost his daughter, who'd

0:04:280:04:30

been beaten, and had

to ransom his daughter back.

0:04:300:04:33

He kept breaking down in tears.

0:04:330:04:37

The people that Boris Johnson

is meeting here are all in limbo.

0:04:370:04:45

Bangladesh doesn't want

them here permanently

0:04:450:04:47

but they can't go back to Myanmar

without guarantees of safety.

0:04:470:04:50

So what can Britain do to help?

0:04:500:04:52

It's about finding a political

solution, finding an answer

0:04:520:04:54

in Myanmar, from Burma,

creating the conditions for a safe,

0:04:540:04:57

dignified return for these people.

0:04:570:04:59

That's what they want.

0:04:590:05:02

They do want to go back

but they don't feel safe.

0:05:020:05:06

That's the message the Foreign

Secretary is taking to Myanmar,

0:05:060:05:08

where he landed tonight.

0:05:080:05:12

He admits a safe return

for the Rohingya presently

0:05:120:05:14

looks unrealistic.

0:05:140:05:17

It's a very tough diplomatic

battle he has to fight.

0:05:170:05:25

The father of an 11-year-ld

schoolgirl who was stabbed

0:05:260:05:28

in Wolverhampton says he's "utterly

devastated" by her death.

0:05:280:05:31

Jasmine Forrester's father Simeon,

said she "was a shining star

0:05:310:05:34

and a huge part of us".

0:05:340:05:37

Detectives are questioning

a 51-year-old relative

0:05:370:05:38

on suspicion of murder.

0:05:380:05:43

Jeremy Corbyn has promised to bring

a large number of privatised

0:05:430:05:46

utilities back into public control.

0:05:460:05:49

The Labour leader told a conference

in London that the UK

0:05:490:05:51

should be following "a global tide

of public ownership."

0:05:510:05:55

We need to put Britain

at the forefront of the wave

0:05:550:06:00

of international change,

in favour of public,

0:06:000:06:04

democratic ownership and control

of our services and utilities.

0:06:040:06:10

From India to Canada,

across the world, people are waking

0:06:100:06:12

up to the fact that privatisation

has failed and taking back control

0:06:120:06:15

of their public services.

0:06:150:06:20

North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un has

invited the South Korean

0:06:200:06:23

president for talks

at the "earliest date possible."

0:06:230:06:27

The historic invitation was given

by Kim Jong-un's sister,

0:06:270:06:33

who's visiting the South

for the Winter Olympics.

0:06:330:06:35

If talks do take place, they'd be

the first in more than a decade

0:06:350:06:38

between Korean leaders.

0:06:380:06:39

With all the action

from the Winter Olympics

0:06:390:06:43

and the rest of a busy day of sport,

let's join Lizzie Greenwood Hughes

0:06:430:06:46

at the BBC Sport Centre.

0:06:460:06:51

There is a huge mess going on at

Twickenham in

0:06:510:06:54

There is a huge mess going on at

Twickenham in the rugby for the Six

0:06:540:06:56

Nations Championship, England

against Wales, England, 12, Wales,

0:06:560:06:59

three, just before half-time.

0:06:590:07:06

Ireland thumping Italy 56-19, Jacob

Stockdale scoring two of their eight

0:07:060:07:12

tries in Dublin as Ireland topped

the table. Eight tries and the stoop

0:07:120:07:17

where the England teenager helped

the defending champions demolish

0:07:170:07:21

Wales 52-0. Scotland playing France

later.

0:07:210:07:29

They say there's no place like home

and after moving into Wembley at the

0:07:350:07:39

beginning of the season Tottenham

seemed to have the place the way

0:07:390:07:41

they like it, unbeaten at the

National Stadium since October last

0:07:410:07:44

year. Now time to invite the

neighbours around. In front of a

0:07:440:07:51

record-breaking crowd the first 45

minutes were his dismal as the

0:07:510:07:54

weather, Harry Kane with the only

chance before the break. Minutes

0:07:540:07:57

into the second half the Premier

League 's top goal-scorer rose to

0:07:570:08:02

the occasion to score his seventh

goal in seven games against Arsenal.

0:08:020:08:08

Despite the Tottenham dominance they

failed to capitalise on their

0:08:080:08:10

chances. Petr Cech appeared at times

to single-handedly be keeping the

0:08:100:08:15

visitors in the game. Further agony

for Arsenal as Lacazette missed a

0:08:150:08:20

golden opportunity in the final

minutes of the game. A crushing blow

0:08:200:08:25

to Arsene Wenger's top four hopes as

Spurs go seven points clear of their

0:08:250:08:30

north London rivals.

0:08:300:08:36

The former Republic of Ireland

midfielder Liam Miller has

0:08:360:08:38

died at the age of 36.

0:08:380:08:40

He had cancer.

0:08:400:08:45

There was a minute's silence before

Celtic's Scottish Cup win over

0:08:450:08:47

Partick Thistle to remember Miller

who'd played for Celtic

0:08:470:08:50

as well as Manchester United.

0:08:500:08:54

The Winter Olympics in South Korea

are in full flow and it's been

0:08:540:08:58

a mixed day for Team GB.

0:08:580:08:59

The men's snowboarders crashed-out

in the slopestyle heats but speed

0:08:590:09:01

skater Elise Christie is safely

through to the quarter-finals

0:09:010:09:04

of the 500m short track.

0:09:040:09:05

Our correspondent Andy Swiss

reports from Pyonchang.

0:09:050:09:06

She is Britain's biggest medal hope.

Christie going to the front.

Elise

0:09:090:09:16

Christie was soon showing why,

leading her 500 metres heat from

0:09:160:09:20

start to finish, setting a new

Olympic record.

Christie wins it.

0:09:200:09:24

Some statement of intent. After her

disqualification in the last Games,

0:09:240:09:28

what relief.

So nervous. I thought

maybe I'm not going to do it but it

0:09:280:09:34

was fine. I got to the line, I was

excited and I'm glad I got in front

0:09:340:09:39

of everyone again.

But British roads

in the snowboarding came crashing

0:09:390:09:43

down.

Oh, Jamie.

Jamie Nicholls and

then his team-mate Billy Morgan both

0:09:430:09:50

tumbled out of the slopestyle event.

In the women's cross-country skiing,

0:09:500:09:54

the first gold medal when of the

game, for Sweden's Charlotte Kalla.

0:09:540:10:02

£14 is was a day of mixed fortunes,

disappointment on the snow but Elise

0:10:020:10:08

Christie's hopes for gold are off to

the perfect start -- for Team GB

0:10:080:10:13

this was a day of mixed fortunes.

Plenty more on the BBC sport website

0:10:130:10:19

including news of another Twenty20

defeat for England's cricketers in

0:10:190:10:21

Australia.

0:10:210:10:24

That's it.

0:10:240:10:26

I'll be back with the late news

a little earlier tonight at 2110.

0:10:260:10:45
