Hello. Top story from Iraq. The Prime Minister Blair has declared

:00:11.:00:23.

victory over Islamic State in Mosul. The Army has been trying to retake

:00:24.:00:29.

the city for nine months. In Washington, President Trump's son

:00:30.:00:35.

has said that he set a Russian lawyer who promised to reveal

:00:36.:00:37.

damaging material about Hillary Clinton. That is a continued search

:00:38.:00:45.

into alleged Russian meddling in the US election. The judge overseeing a

:00:46.:00:53.

case of a male baby says he will need very good evidence to change

:00:54.:00:58.

his mind and in sport though it has been a big upset. Rafael Nadal is

:00:59.:01:01.

out. Welcome back to an outside source. A

:01:02.:01:23.

number of stories to bring you from Washington related to Donald Trump.

:01:24.:01:31.

Donald Trump Junior, his son, has admitted to meeting a Russian lawyer

:01:32.:01:36.

after she promised him damaging material about Hillary Clinton. It

:01:37.:01:40.

happened during the 2016 election campaign. This is the original story

:01:41.:01:49.

in the New York Times. At the time, Donald Trump junior confirmed he had

:01:50.:01:55.

met with this woman but claimed the campaign was not discussed. A day

:01:56.:01:59.

later he changed his story and admitted that they had met under

:02:00.:02:06.

their belief that information about Hillary Clinton would be shared.

:02:07.:02:12.

Donald Trump junior says that no information was offered and it

:02:13.:02:15.

quickly became clear she had no meaningful information. The

:02:16.:02:21.

President's son-in-law was also at that meeting. We just got this

:02:22.:02:29.

update. Donald Trump junior has hired in New York lawyer to

:02:30.:02:33.

represent him in connection with those Russian related

:02:34.:02:37.

investigations. We can get more on this from Washington. We just had an

:02:38.:02:43.

offer from Donald Trump junior to cooperate with investigations. There

:02:44.:02:49.

have been multiple requests from Congress for Donald Trump to speak

:02:50.:02:59.

to their committees. Susan Collins, there was also a Democrat from

:03:00.:03:07.

California, he also wants him to appear. That is one of the reasons

:03:08.:03:14.

why Donald Trump junior just said he was hiring a lawyer. This is the

:03:15.:03:19.

latest member of Donald Trump's inner circle who has obtained

:03:20.:03:24.

independent lawyers to represent them. They all have legal team is

:03:25.:03:36.

helping to advise them. Because of the possibility of criminality. How

:03:37.:03:42.

damaging is this? Is this not what campaigns do, they look for dirt

:03:43.:03:49.

about their opponents? That is certainly standard in campaigns, you

:03:50.:03:54.

try to find anything you can use during the campaign. Most campaigns

:03:55.:03:59.

have teams dedicated to it and they're usually isolated a bit from

:04:00.:04:03.

the presidential campaign because there could be blowback if you meet

:04:04.:04:09.

someone who could be embarrassing. That is why there is usually this

:04:10.:04:19.

buffer. Normally you do not see a campaign meeting with a foreign

:04:20.:04:24.

national to discuss an opponent. In the past, these things have been

:04:25.:04:32.

handed over to the FBI. If it turns out there was something to do with

:04:33.:04:35.

Russian hacking, it would definitely qualify. Another story related to

:04:36.:04:44.

Donald Trump Janmaat meeting with Vladimir Putin. On Sunday, Donald

:04:45.:04:51.

Trump treated that they discussed forming a cyber Security unit. That

:04:52.:04:57.

prompted ridicule and outcry from both sides of the political divide

:04:58.:05:02.

in Washington. Then he followed up with this treat: as far as you

:05:03.:05:14.

turned school, this was a quick one? Is still caught some members of

:05:15.:05:17.

Donald Trump's administration of guard. We saw his Treasury Secretary

:05:18.:05:26.

come out boasting about this joint group that was going to be set up

:05:27.:05:30.

between Russia and the US. Then Donald Trump took the rug out from

:05:31.:05:35.

underneath them. He felt a lot of pressure and ridicule. A fox being

:05:36.:05:42.

asked to guard the hen house. That is something a lot of members in

:05:43.:05:49.

both parties did not think was ever going to get off the ground. This

:05:50.:05:57.

picture tells a story. Donald Trump has defended his decision to let his

:05:58.:06:00.

daughters sitting for him at one point during the T20 summer. There

:06:01.:06:08.

she is sitting in for her father. She is next to the President of

:06:09.:06:14.

China and Theresa May. Donald Trump defended his decision. He said that

:06:15.:06:23.

if Chelsea Clinton was asked to keep the seat this week -- the fake news

:06:24.:06:35.

would say make her president. This is how Chelsea responded. This is

:06:36.:06:42.

not the first time that Donald Trump's daughter has sat next to

:06:43.:06:54.

world leaders. I think that the outcry if Chelsea Clinton started in

:06:55.:06:58.

Hillary Clinton's place would be unprecedented. I don't think people

:06:59.:07:03.

would be saying, Chelsea for president. Donald Trump's relatives

:07:04.:07:12.

are getting particular attention again and that is a concern. It

:07:13.:07:18.

plays into notions about nepotism in the Donald Trump administration.

:07:19.:07:25.

Beyond that, she is a senior adviser and advise is often certain for the

:07:26.:07:30.

president. This is just another example of that. Thank you. Thank

:07:31.:07:37.

you for bringing us up-to-date on those developments from Washington.

:07:38.:07:46.

This man has had a long day. Giles Muller has sent Rafael Nadal

:07:47.:07:50.

crashing out. It is already being called the match of the tournament.

:07:51.:07:57.

I did not see the match but there were a lot of people talking about

:07:58.:08:03.

in the news room. It is no exaggeration to say it is

:08:04.:08:08.

one of the best matches I have ever seen and it is the longest in

:08:09.:08:12.

Wimbledon this year, four hours and 40 minutes. Giles Muller lost his

:08:13.:08:22.

last 22 matches. In 17 years as a professional he had never won a

:08:23.:08:29.

title before this year. Compare that to Rafael Nadal, 15 major titles and

:08:30.:08:34.

seven times runner-up in what has been a strong period in tennis.

:08:35.:08:40.

Giles Muller must've thought there was some inevitability about it. If

:08:41.:08:47.

he didn't, the crowded. Most people were favouring Rafael Nadal, but

:08:48.:08:55.

Giles Muller managed to wind in the deciding fifth set. When we asked

:08:56.:09:03.

how we felt, he said, tired. At 37, Venus Williams, nine years

:09:04.:09:28.

since she last won a title, she is into the quarters. Andy Murray won

:09:29.:09:34.

his match to reach his tenth consecutive quarterfinal. Roger

:09:35.:09:42.

Federer won his match and your vital bit that not make it to court won

:09:43.:09:46.

because the previous match lasted so long. His game was delayed for a

:09:47.:09:51.

day. Thank you. Manchester United have

:09:52.:10:05.

signed Romilly Lukaku from Everton for ?75 million. That is $96 million

:10:06.:10:12.

on a five-year contract. This is what Jose Mourinho had to say:

:10:13.:10:24.

That is a man leaving Everton, but this man, Wayne Rooney, has been

:10:25.:10:33.

talking about the journey he is making in the opposite direction. I

:10:34.:10:38.

always play like I have a point to prove. I am not going into

:10:39.:10:47.

retirement, I want to win and be successful at this football club.

:10:48.:10:53.

That is what I will do. I feel good, I am not fit at the moment but that

:10:54.:10:58.

will build up in the next few weeks. I think it is a challenge, it is the

:10:59.:11:06.

right time in my career. I am ready for it. Stay with us, still to come:

:11:07.:11:16.

The judge hearing the case of a terminally ill baby says he needs

:11:17.:11:22.

new evidence to allow experimental treatment in America. We will bring

:11:23.:11:31.

you a report from the court. It is called big gig economy and millions

:11:32.:11:35.

of people are caught in a grey area without the normal protections.

:11:36.:11:46.

Employment law is being reviewed. This man is more -- this man is one

:11:47.:11:53.

of more than a million people who gets paid by the task and not the

:11:54.:11:59.

hour. Is it some but if it is a slow day for takeaway is to them that

:12:00.:12:06.

losers. On a good day if you work ten hours we can earn about ?150. On

:12:07.:12:13.

a slow day we will earn around ?70 working for a 10-11 hours. Sometimes

:12:14.:12:20.

we only get one job in three hours, so we get ?3 50. So it is not good

:12:21.:12:29.

when it is not busy. If you get sick has an accident, he will not have an

:12:30.:12:36.

income. But tomorrow the government is expected to classify workers like

:12:37.:12:39.

him as dependent contractors and make them entitled to the minimum

:12:40.:12:44.

wage. The fear of gig economy companies is that they might have to

:12:45.:12:47.

pay workers who are online rather than doing work. There is a

:12:48.:12:53.

compromise where they will be required to prove that workers could

:12:54.:12:56.

earn substantially more than the minimum wage in a reasonable time.

:12:57.:13:03.

The report is expected to see if gig economy companies are going to pay

:13:04.:13:07.

people by the task, he have to show workers are in a least a fifth more

:13:08.:13:12.

than an employee on the minimum wage. Unions say that could mean

:13:13.:13:16.

less protection. A piece rate reports could be a step backwards.

:13:17.:13:20.

We know that approach is mistaken for cleaners and hotels and they

:13:21.:13:26.

could not clean and offerings to qualify for those rights. Our

:13:27.:13:31.

concern is also drivers could be expected to travel so fast around

:13:32.:13:35.

London and across the UK that they never qualify for the national

:13:36.:13:40.

minimum wage. Gig economy companies are popular because they are

:13:41.:13:46.

efficient and cheap. They avoid playing national insurance. It is

:13:47.:13:50.

unlikely that protection for workers can be stepped up without some

:13:51.:13:51.

increasing costs for consumers. This is live from the BBC newsroom.

:13:52.:14:17.

Barack's may minister has declared victory over the Islamic State group

:14:18.:14:21.

in Mosul. The battlebus Mosul has taken almost nine months, killed

:14:22.:14:24.

thousands of civilians displaced over 900,000 others. Ukraine's

:14:25.:14:33.

president has asked for discussions to begin on an action plan that

:14:34.:14:39.

could lead to Nato. The president was speaking after holding talks in

:14:40.:14:46.

Kiev. Russia is not happy. Ukraine is fighting a Russian backed

:14:47.:14:50.

insurgency in the East. A spokesman said that for many years Russia has

:14:51.:14:56.

been wary by Nato's military structure moving closer to our

:14:57.:14:59.

borders and potentially this could be the next step. He says it will

:15:00.:15:06.

not boost stability and security in the European continent.

:15:07.:15:08.

This is the Ukrainian parliament building and earlier today this is

:15:09.:15:17.

where the general secretary of Nato spoke to MPs. He took some questions

:15:18.:15:22.

and most of them revolved around the possibility of Ukraine joining Nato,

:15:23.:15:31.

the north Atlantic alliance. He did not give a direct answer to that or

:15:32.:15:35.

any Canon time frame as to when talks might take place. But he

:15:36.:15:41.

stressed is that Ukraine needed to carry out further reforms and do

:15:42.:15:45.

more to strengthen institutions and tackle corruption and that those

:15:46.:15:48.

reforms should be carried out anyway, that would move Ukraine

:15:49.:15:53.

closer to Nato. He also stressed that any eventual decision on

:15:54.:15:58.

Ukraine's possible membership would be down to the 29th existing member

:15:59.:16:07.

states and Ukraine itself. Russia, despite its long-held objections to

:16:08.:16:11.

Ukraine joining Nato, with not have a veto in that decision. Most people

:16:12.:16:18.

except it is in the medium to long distance future, if it ever happens,

:16:19.:16:23.

that Ukraine might become a member of Nato. A lot of things have to

:16:24.:16:28.

happen and change. There is still a conflict in the east of this

:16:29.:16:35.

country. This has to be resolved before Nato when its members welcome

:16:36.:16:40.

Ukraine. This is Charlie Gard, a terminally

:16:41.:16:44.

ill baby suffering from a rare genetic condition. The hospital

:16:45.:16:49.

where he is being treated as decided to end his life support and as

:16:50.:16:53.

parents and made several unsuccessful challenges. Earlier

:16:54.:16:56.

they were in the High Court to present new evidence of an

:16:57.:16:58.

experimental treatment in America which they say could help him. Our

:16:59.:17:06.

correspondent has the story. For core, passionate and determined.

:17:07.:17:13.

Charlie Gard's parents have considerable support, including the

:17:14.:17:18.

Pope and Donald Trump. Now this pro-life evangelical preacher, who

:17:19.:17:24.

was once jailed for anti-abortion protests, and he's been praying by

:17:25.:17:32.

Charlie Gard's bedside. If I judge or hospital can come and tell a

:17:33.:17:36.

parent they do not have the authority to provide the kind of

:17:37.:17:40.

medical care that their parents need, then parental rights are under

:17:41.:17:45.

attack and the fabric of our society unravels. It is well-established in

:17:46.:17:53.

UK law that we're parents and doctors cannot agree, a judge must

:17:54.:17:58.

decide. Charlie is still weak that he cannot move and he has serious

:17:59.:18:04.

brain damage. For courts and ruled he should be allowed to die with

:18:05.:18:09.

dignity. In court, lawyers for Charlie's parents said there was

:18:10.:18:13.

evidence that showed an experimental treatment might help their son. The

:18:14.:18:17.

judge said that there was not a person alive who did not want

:18:18.:18:21.

Charlie to get better and he would be delighted to change ruling that

:18:22.:18:27.

it had to be on the basis of clear evidence. He said that the

:18:28.:18:30.

hospital's view was that every day that passed the Charlie suffer more.

:18:31.:18:47.

He has a rare condition. Charlie's mitochondria does not function

:18:48.:18:51.

properly. This treatment is a powder form that is given in food and can

:18:52.:18:58.

help mitochondrial function. Studies suggest a 4% improvement. Eight have

:18:59.:19:06.

been treated before but none had his condition or brain damage. The High

:19:07.:19:15.

Court said that on published data showed dramatic improvement. The

:19:16.:19:19.

experimental therapy has never been tried in humans or animals with his

:19:20.:19:26.

exact condition. Paediatrician said that great Ormond she would be

:19:27.:19:30.

concerned it could do him harm. There is a lot of things that are

:19:31.:19:36.

known here and those looking after him in the hospital are concerned

:19:37.:19:40.

about him and there are some of the greatest experts in the world.

:19:41.:19:46.

Charlie's parents left court saying they were hopeful of persuading the

:19:47.:19:50.

judge on Thursday to allow them to take him to Italy or the US for

:19:51.:19:56.

treatment. Meanwhile he continues to receive round-the-clock care in

:19:57.:20:05.

hospital. A self-confessed IRA bomb maker says he was responsible for

:20:06.:20:09.

one of the worst bombing attacks on British soil and has apologised. He

:20:10.:20:13.

has refused to say what role he played. People were killed and

:20:14.:20:19.

injured in the 1974 attack on to Birmingham pubs. The bonds were left

:20:20.:20:28.

in the heart of Birmingham on a Thursday night. Placed inside pubs

:20:29.:20:35.

to cost structure. Explosions that led to 21 people dying. In the same

:20:36.:20:44.

year, 1974, Nick Hayes took part in this funeral for a hunger striker.

:20:45.:20:52.

He was a well-known Republican, and admitted IRA bomb maker who was

:20:53.:20:54.

convicted of offences in the Republic of Ireland. And now, for

:20:55.:21:04.

decades after the murders in Birmingham, man has emerged to say

:21:05.:21:07.

he was part of the group that bombed the city. I was a participant in IRA

:21:08.:21:18.

activities in Birmingham. Did you plan the bonds? I'm giving you the

:21:19.:21:25.

only answer I can give you. He has been questioned in the past that he

:21:26.:21:31.

has never been charged. Even now he will not say what role he played,

:21:32.:21:36.

but he says he takes click of responsibility for it. I apologise,

:21:37.:21:48.

not only for myself, I apologise for all the Republicans. I had no

:21:49.:21:57.

intention of hurting anybody. Some would say you have blood on your

:21:58.:22:02.

hands. I know they would say that and from their point of view they

:22:03.:22:07.

can justify that. I do not shout my responsibility in that direction. A

:22:08.:22:11.

group of men were charged and found guilty of the bombing. It was a

:22:12.:22:18.

famous miscarriage of justice. The convictions of the men who became

:22:19.:22:21.

known as the Birmingham six were overturned. 416 and a half years we

:22:22.:22:30.

have been used as scapegoats. Highlight today the families of

:22:31.:22:33.

those murdered in the pub bombings watched his apology and were angry.

:22:34.:22:43.

A coward. He would rather die than be an informer but he is happy to

:22:44.:22:49.

take collective responsibility for the murder of 21 innocents in

:22:50.:22:54.

Birmingham. He avoided many questions but he claims mistakes led

:22:55.:23:00.

the IRA to give bomb warnings too late and he personally defused a

:23:01.:23:05.

third bomb left in the city centre that night. The explosions were

:23:06.:23:09.

horrific. They were terrible. It shot Barry. -- it shocked the IRA.

:23:10.:23:23.

When we find what happened I defused the bomb. Many in Birmingham will

:23:24.:23:31.

question why he has come forward now, particularly as though one has

:23:32.:23:34.

ever been held legally responsibility for murdering the 21

:23:35.:23:38.

people who died in a night out in the city.

:23:39.:23:45.

Despite qualifying for a US competition, an all girl team of

:23:46.:23:50.

Afghan roboticists will be forced to watch both video link after their

:23:51.:23:56.

visas were refused. Girls in Afghanistan do not normally do this,

:23:57.:24:04.

build robots and break stereotypes. This team of six decided to build a

:24:05.:24:07.

robot to enter a competition in Washington. Now, after their abusers

:24:08.:24:14.

were turned down, they will have to take part using the Internet. All

:24:15.:24:21.

the countries can participate apart from us, so it is a clear insult the

:24:22.:24:27.

of Afghanistan. If you want something you can achieve it. We did

:24:28.:24:31.

our best and we hope our robot can take his place with other entries

:24:32.:24:37.

from across the world. They have organised the competition and have

:24:38.:24:42.

more than 150 teams participating. The girls from Afghanistan will be

:24:43.:24:46.

the only ones represented in Washington. In a country where girls

:24:47.:24:51.

find hard to get basic education, these girls have come very far, but

:24:52.:24:56.

they have to leave it to the robot to go it alone from here.

:24:57.:25:02.

Back at the same time tomorrow. Goodbye.

:25:03.:25:05.
