This is Outside Source. These are some of the main stories. First of

:00:18.:00:26.

all, the British Parliament has voted to hold a general election on

:00:27.:00:34.

June the 8th. The ayes have it, the ayes have it. Theresa May is making

:00:35.:00:47.

the election about Dexit. Jeremy Corbyn is asking if she can be

:00:48.:00:49.

trusted on anything. Donald Trump has ordered a review

:00:50.:00:51.

of the Iran nuclear deal. Even though Iran is meeting

:00:52.:00:53.

all its commitments. We'll be live in Washington

:00:54.:00:55.

with our State Department. Plus, a week ago Donald Trump

:00:56.:00:57.

boasted of sending an armada We've now found out it

:00:58.:01:00.

never made it that far. And we will hear why demonstrators

:01:01.:01:11.

in Venezuela are putting more pressure on President Nicolas

:01:12.:01:13.

Majuro, with a march they are calling the mother of all protests.

:01:14.:01:22.

And you can get in touch, the information is on the screen

:01:23.:01:23.

throughout the programme. Let's pick up on a story I just

:01:24.:01:36.

mentioned. Donald Trump has ordered a review of the Iran nuclear deal.

:01:37.:01:43.

We already know what hit thinks of it. In one to eat he called it

:01:44.:01:47.

terrible and he has described it as that and many other terms multiple

:01:48.:01:51.

times. The US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has just been speaking in

:01:52.:01:55.

the last few minutes, we have had wire copy coming in from Reuters,

:01:56.:02:04.

telling us he has said this. America opposes all threats posed by Iran,

:02:05.:02:12.

and it is clear there are many. Barbara, you were listening to Rex

:02:13.:02:16.

Tillerson. What did you make of it? It was interesting, he's speaking

:02:17.:02:19.

off the back of a statement he put out yesterday in which he certified

:02:20.:02:25.

that' Iran is keeping its commitment to the nuclear deal. He said yes, in

:02:26.:02:33.

that case the Iran deal is working. What we heard was a litany of

:02:34.:02:37.

complaints about Iran, that it posed a threat in the region, that it was

:02:38.:02:43.

backing militias there and that it has continued testing missile

:02:44.:02:48.

technology, violated UN Security Council resolutions, that it was a

:02:49.:02:53.

state sponsor of terrorism, and so on and so forth. Then he said there

:02:54.:02:56.

would be a review of the nuclear deal, which he said only delayed

:02:57.:03:01.

Iran becoming a nuclear power, did not end the possibility of it. And

:03:02.:03:06.

he said you could not look at the issue of the nuclear deal without

:03:07.:03:09.

looking at all of the other things as well, which is something the

:03:10.:03:13.

Obama administration did, focusing narrowly on this one issue, which is

:03:14.:03:17.

how they were able to get the agreement. Rex Tillerson saying this

:03:18.:03:22.

will not be the approach of the Trump administration. They will look

:03:23.:03:26.

at all these other things they find troublesome through this review and

:03:27.:03:28.

come up with a response based on that. But he didn't suggest in which

:03:29.:03:33.

direction the Trump administration would go, on specifics. Let's pick

:03:34.:03:39.

up on that a bit. I'm listening to all of this and thinking, what is

:03:40.:03:43.

the plan here? The Trump administration will know this deal

:03:44.:03:46.

is a multi natural deal, it is going to be in credibly hard to unpick,

:03:47.:03:51.

some say impossible. The Americans could pull out of the deal but that

:03:52.:03:55.

would destroy it because there are five other world powers who signed

:03:56.:03:58.

on to it. What they could do instead is just implement it very strictly

:03:59.:04:04.

to the letter, not giving the Iranians any leeway at all, and some

:04:05.:04:08.

of the approach is being discussed are perhaps looking at the

:04:09.:04:10.

interpretations of the deal that would allow them to put as much

:04:11.:04:14.

pressure as possible on the Revolutionary guards in particular,

:04:15.:04:18.

then alongside that, suggestions in Congress for legislation that would

:04:19.:04:22.

impose new sanctions on Iran, not because of its nuclear programme,

:04:23.:04:25.

separate from that, but because of all these other things that Rex

:04:26.:04:29.

Tillerson just spoke about, support for terrorism, missile tests and so

:04:30.:04:33.

on, which would also increase pressure on Iran and perhaps

:04:34.:04:36.

ultimately have the same result in the end of scuppering the deal,

:04:37.:04:41.

especially if Iran decides that the Americans are not in compliance with

:04:42.:04:44.

the deal. Please stay with us, there is another story I want to talk to

:04:45.:04:50.

you about. This was Donald Trump a week ago. We are sending an armada,

:04:51.:04:56.

very powerful. We have submarines, very powerful. Far more powerful

:04:57.:05:01.

than the aircraft carrier, that I can tell you.

:05:02.:05:03.

The "armada" he mentions is a reference to a US strike group

:05:04.:05:06.

led by the US aircraft carrier Carl Vinson.

:05:07.:05:08.

Here's a press release from the US Navy three days earlier.

:05:09.:05:13.

It announces that the strike group has been ordered to MAP sail

:05:14.:05:17.

It announces that the strike group has been ordered to sail

:05:18.:05:20.

north from Singapore towards the Korean peninsula.

:05:21.:05:22.

After that release, but before the President spoke,

:05:23.:05:24.

US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis was asked about that order

:05:25.:05:27.

He replied, "She's just on her way up there because that's

:05:28.:05:35.

where we thought it was most prudent to have her at this time."

:05:36.:05:38.

When Secretary Mattis says "at this time" it was widely taken

:05:39.:05:44.

as reference to increasing tension with North Korea.

:05:45.:05:46.

But that strike group didn't sail north.

:05:47.:05:48.

A week after the order was made, the warships

:05:49.:05:50.

In fact, they were sailing through the Sunda Straight.

:05:51.:06:03.

We know this the US Navy released this

:06:04.:06:12.

photo of the Carl Vinson in the Sunda Straight on Saturday.

:06:13.:06:14.

It says the warships did training exercises

:06:15.:06:16.

But Barbara, bringing you back in here, that isn't what the president

:06:17.:06:23.

said. No it isn't, and there has been great confusion. When it was

:06:24.:06:26.

announced the strike carrier had been ordered to move north, they

:06:27.:06:32.

didn't announce that it would in gauge in these exercises with the

:06:33.:06:37.

Australians, but the president jumped onto the conclusion that this

:06:38.:06:40.

was going to happen imminently and that it was in response to tensions

:06:41.:06:44.

in the Korean peninsular that were mounting ahead of the weekend, it

:06:45.:06:48.

was thought that the North Koreans might have a possible nuclear test.

:06:49.:06:52.

By the end of the week, that was the White House line, that the strike

:06:53.:06:57.

group was being deployed as a show of force and signal of deterrence

:06:58.:07:00.

and so on and so forth, and then it became clear that it wasn't even

:07:01.:07:05.

within thousands of miles of the Korean waters and would only have

:07:06.:07:08.

been able to get there next week anyway. There has been a remarkable

:07:09.:07:14.

disconnect. It's unclear why the Pentagon and the Navy did not step

:07:15.:07:17.

in to clarify earlier what the actual course and timing of the

:07:18.:07:24.

strike trajectory was. Let's just pull up a couple of tweets on this

:07:25.:07:26.

story. The global Times is a Chinese

:07:27.:07:39.

newspaper, state run, saying it deals a blow to Trump's presidency.

:07:40.:07:46.

"If it is a lie, we will not trust Trump". Barbara, what is your

:07:47.:07:53.

assessment of the consequences of this issue? Officially in Japan and

:07:54.:08:00.

South Korea, and even from the Foreign Ministry in China, there has

:08:01.:08:04.

not been a response. You've got the quotes you mentioned there and there

:08:05.:08:07.

have been jokes about it on social media in China, there has also been

:08:08.:08:12.

some muscle flexing in North Korea, saying this is a rustbucket facing

:08:13.:08:18.

our revolutionary power etc. So it doesn't make Americans look good. It

:08:19.:08:22.

could undermine their tougher approach, especially if that tougher

:08:23.:08:26.

approach and rhetoric is supposed to be backed up by a credible threat of

:08:27.:08:33.

military force. I think also alongside that it has been

:08:34.:08:35.

unsettling for US allies because they would want to know why is the

:08:36.:08:40.

president weighing one thing and his military forces doing and saying

:08:41.:08:45.

another? So that is also a big question mark as well, I think.

:08:46.:08:53.

Thank you very much, Barbara, speak to you soon on outside source. While

:08:54.:08:58.

that story was escalating, American Vice President Mike Pence has been

:08:59.:09:01.

touring a different aircraft carrier that has docked at a Japanese naval

:09:02.:09:03.

base. The sight of the US vice president

:09:04.:09:09.

on board a nuclear-powered aircraft even more so when it's

:09:10.:09:13.

sitting in Japan. Was this an elaborate piece

:09:14.:09:19.

of theatre, or a sign America is really preparing for action

:09:20.:09:21.

against North Korea? We will defeat any attack and meet

:09:22.:09:30.

any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming

:09:31.:09:33.

and effective American response. The United States of America

:09:34.:09:36.

will always seek peace, but under President Trump,

:09:37.:09:49.

the shield stands guard If President Trump is planning

:09:50.:09:51.

some sort of military action against North Korea,

:09:52.:09:54.

there is no sign of it here. This is the USS Ronald Reagan,

:09:55.:09:57.

the flagship of the Seventh Fleet, but it won't be ready to leave this

:09:58.:10:00.

port in Japan for at Figuring out what the jump

:10:01.:10:12.

administration is planning for North Korea is not easy, perhaps

:10:13.:10:15.

deliberately so. -- the Trump administration.

:10:16.:10:19.

Rupert Wingfield Hayes, BBC News, at the Yokosuka naval base in Japan.

:10:20.:10:23.

Let's bring you some of the main sports stories of the day. We begin

:10:24.:10:27.

in America. The Former NFL player

:10:28.:10:28.

Aaron Hernandez has He was 27 and was serving a life

:10:29.:10:30.

sentence for murder. Marc Edwards is at

:10:31.:10:35.

the BBC Sport Centre. What more can you tell us about this

:10:36.:10:43.

man's death and also the crime he had been convicted for? Sad news

:10:44.:10:48.

from Massachusetts where he was found just after 3am local time.

:10:49.:10:52.

Prison guards tried to revive him but he was pronounced dead about an

:10:53.:10:57.

hour later in hospital. The 27-year-old former New England

:10:58.:11:01.

Patriots tight ends. He entered the NFL in 2010 and in his second

:11:02.:11:04.

appearance became the youngest player in five decades to surpass

:11:05.:11:10.

100 receiving yards in a game. He subsequently signed a five-year, $40

:11:11.:11:16.

million contract with the Patriots in 2012. In 2015 he was convicted of

:11:17.:11:21.

killing a man who was dating his fiancee's sister. In 38 career games

:11:22.:11:30.

he had a total of 1956 yards, a total that would have been much

:11:31.:11:32.

higher if not for a series of injuries. As we said, he was serving

:11:33.:11:37.

a life sentence in jail in Massachusetts but just days ago he

:11:38.:11:42.

was found not filthy of a separate double murder.

:11:43.:11:45.

-- not guilty of a separate double murder. In terms of what happens to

:11:46.:11:52.

his conviction now, I heard some reports that that might be revisited

:11:53.:11:57.

now he has lost his life? I just misheard that. That's absolutely

:11:58.:12:02.

fine, I was just going to argue about where we go with the legal

:12:03.:12:08.

proceedings, he was not convicted of other crimes, but presumably the

:12:09.:12:11.

investigation now sees that he has lost his life. That is perhaps... He

:12:12.:12:18.

was in jail for a separate crime as well. As we said, his fiancee's

:12:19.:12:27.

sister, a person who was dating his fiancee's sister, who of course in

:12:28.:12:33.

that time, he was also a former friend of his, who had committed the

:12:34.:12:39.

crime. I assume we will hear more in the coming time. Thank you very much

:12:40.:12:44.

indeed for your update on that story.

:12:45.:12:47.

Aaron Hernandez played for the New England Patriots.

:12:48.:12:52.

And today his former team has been visiting the White House.

:12:53.:12:54.

Here they are at an official function, attended by Donald Trump

:12:55.:13:05.

of course. Six Patriot players weren't there, they are boycotting

:13:06.:13:09.

the occasion, saying they don't feel welcome while Donald Trump is

:13:10.:13:12.

president. They include the tight end Martellus Bennett and also the

:13:13.:13:16.

defensive back Devin McCourty. He said this.

:13:17.:13:31.

Those who did go a long look like they were having a good time. John

:13:32.:13:41.

Spicer was doing his daily press briefing and one of the players

:13:42.:13:45.

showed up. What pans out in the negotiation. Can I just? I think I

:13:46.:13:51.

got this, but thank you! Need some help? Thanks, man, see you in a

:13:52.:13:57.

minute! Thanks, man, see you in a minute! All man, see you in a

:13:58.:14:03.

minute! Thanks, man, see you in a minute! Thanks, man, see you in a

:14:04.:14:04.

minute! All right, that was cool! The squad for the British

:14:05.:14:08.

and Irish Lions has been announced. They have the hardest

:14:09.:14:13.

of rugby assignments. First - they must fashion

:14:14.:14:15.

a team very quickly out of players who normally play

:14:16.:14:17.

for their respective countries. And second - they must try and beat

:14:18.:14:19.

the All Blacks in New Zealand. Here is what their coach Warren

:14:20.:14:28.

Gatland said earlier. I don't think we should get on the plane unless we

:14:29.:14:31.

think we have a chance of beating the all Blacks. One of the

:14:32.:14:39.

challenges is that you try to play against the All Blacks and they are

:14:40.:14:42.

human and capable of making mistakes, they have frailties and

:14:43.:14:45.

you but them under pressure. The pleasing thing is that a lot of

:14:46.:14:49.

those players can believe it now because they saw some of those

:14:50.:14:52.

frailties when Ireland beat the All Blacks in Chicago. On the BBC Sport

:14:53.:14:56.

website you can get the full squad and plenty of analysis from my

:14:57.:14:59.

colleagues too. One last bit of sports news -

:15:00.:15:02.

Serena Williams appeared to announce She posted this picture

:15:03.:15:05.

of herself on Snapchat, posing in a mirror with the message: "20

:15:06.:15:14.

weeks", before deleting the post. There's been no official

:15:15.:15:17.

confirmation from her team but if true, it means she won her

:15:18.:15:24.

record-breaking 23rd Grand Slam singles title at the Australian Open

:15:25.:15:27.

in January when she was pregnant. But we will have to wait to hear

:15:28.:15:33.

from her to find out if that is definitely the case.

:15:34.:15:35.

We've been following the Jakarta local elections for some

:15:36.:15:38.

The elections have played into local and racial tensions. We will get a

:15:39.:15:45.

report on that from our correspondent.

:15:46.:15:49.

Prince Harry opened the London Marathon Expo today,

:15:50.:15:51.

his first public appearance since he spoke out about coming

:15:52.:15:57.

to terms with his mother's death, earlier this week.

:15:58.:15:59.

Harry and his little helper Melissa, getting the London Marathon

:16:00.:16:02.

It's a race which, this year, has a special focus

:16:03.:16:06.

on a princely passion - mental health.

:16:07.:16:12.

Prince Harry has attracted widespread praise this week

:16:13.:16:14.

for his honesty when he spoke of the anguish and the anxiety

:16:15.:16:17.

he suffered for years after his mother's death.

:16:18.:16:26.

It was only right to share my experiences and to help,

:16:27.:16:29.

to hope to encourage others to come forward, and sort of reduce

:16:30.:16:32.

To make it easier for them to talk about their own experiences.

:16:33.:16:36.

No, I mean, look - when you've heard so many stories

:16:37.:16:43.

from so many other people, and if you can relate to that,

:16:44.:16:46.

then it's only right that you talk about your own experiences.

:16:47.:16:53.

But all the experts you've met will have told you one

:16:54.:16:56.

of the key issues is funding, and that there isn't enough

:16:57.:16:59.

That's not for, as you probably know, that's not our mission.

:17:00.:17:04.

Our mission is to remove the stigma of mental health

:17:05.:17:07.

a platform for people to be able to discuss it.

:17:08.:17:10.

But the risk is you could be encouraging people to seek

:17:11.:17:13.

No, and that's something that we've been completely aware

:17:14.:17:16.

of over the last year, but the fact and the reality

:17:17.:17:19.

is that, as I said, the appetite is there.

:17:20.:17:21.

Once the appetite is there, things will change.

:17:22.:17:23.

It's not my position and it's not our position

:17:24.:17:27.

So we will do everything that we can to encourage the conversation,

:17:28.:17:32.

remove the stigma, so that everything else then can take place.

:17:33.:17:35.

Opening up about the past is a brotherly trait.

:17:36.:17:37.

In a BBC documentary, Prince William has provided

:17:38.:17:39.

an insight into the trauma of his bereavement.

:17:40.:17:47.

The shock is the biggest thing, and I still feel, you know,

:17:48.:17:52.

20 years later, about my mother, I still have shock within me.

:17:53.:17:55.

People go, "shock can't last that long", but it does.

:17:56.:18:03.

It's such an unbelievably big moment in your life.

:18:04.:18:06.

An upbeat Harry believes their campaign is at a tipping point.

:18:07.:18:19.

The UK, he hopes, will lead the way in the world,

:18:20.:18:22.

by removing the taboo surrounding mental health.

:18:23.:18:30.

Our lead story is that Britain's parliament has

:18:31.:18:38.

backed Prime Minister Theresa May's call for an early general election.

:18:39.:18:41.

Every day on outside source we bring together the main global stories of

:18:42.:18:54.

the day and we turn text in -- turn next to Venezuela.

:18:55.:18:56.

There have been massive anti-government demonstrations today

:18:57.:18:58.

People are angry over the state of the economy

:18:59.:19:10.

and hugely critical about the nature of President Maduro's leadership.

:19:11.:19:12.

On Monday, 11 Latin American countries called on him to prevent

:19:13.:19:16.

any violence against protesters - and to set a date for new elections.

:19:17.:19:25.

The opposition are calling these marches

:19:26.:19:31.

We also spotted this from the Reuters Venezuela feed, that the

:19:32.:19:41.

opposition is beginning marches, but also that one protester has died

:19:42.:19:46.

after a gunshot to the head, that is after security sources, and we don't

:19:47.:19:52.

know who shot that person. We should mention there is a rival

:19:53.:19:55.

demonstration as well, in support of the president, but it was nowhere

:19:56.:19:57.

near as big as the protest is against him.

:19:58.:20:02.

Vanessa Herrero is a journalist in Caracas.

:20:03.:20:04.

We talked to her earlier. This is actually a big protest. It was

:20:05.:20:16.

different from last week's, which saw the movement of a lot of people,

:20:17.:20:20.

but nothing like this. It's the first time this year that both the

:20:21.:20:28.

opposition and forces of the government meet each other on the

:20:29.:20:33.

streets. But can these protesters do anything to force the president to

:20:34.:20:36.

stand down or at least to holding your election? Before, we've seen

:20:37.:20:43.

really big protest in Venezuela. Everyone thought that the government

:20:44.:20:52.

was going to be more passive in measures against the opposition. But

:20:53.:20:57.

unfortunately, that didn't happen. It is actually getting worse. This

:20:58.:21:05.

year a lot of journalists have been arrested and there were at least 500

:21:06.:21:15.

protests this week. If the protesters are struggling to

:21:16.:21:17.

pressure President Maduro, we have now got this group of Latin American

:21:18.:21:20.

leaders calling on him to call an election. Do you think they can

:21:21.:21:26.

pressure him in a way that the protesters can't? That is a

:21:27.:21:31.

different issue, yes, that may be more effective. We have seen that

:21:32.:21:36.

with the government of the United States. Even though the government

:21:37.:21:49.

released a statement saying rejecting what the 11 said, I think

elections have just been held to choose Jakarta's new governor.

Exit polls suggest this man - Anies Baswedan - has won.

Anies Baswedan, a former education minister, has been criticised for

running a very divisive and dirty campaign, capitalising on the

blasphemy accusation against the governor and highlighting religious

supporters of Anies Baswedan crying out that their party win back the
