Hello. I'm Philippa Thomas and this is Outside Source. The main stories.

:00:12.:00:22.

Donald Trump has says statements on North Korea may not have been tough

:00:23.:00:27.

enough. He says that the country should be very wary about doing

:00:28.:00:31.

anything the United States. Maybe that statement was not tough enough.

:00:32.:00:35.

We are backed by our military, backed by everybody.

:00:36.:00:39.

There has been a drowning of migrants off the coast of Yemen and

:00:40.:00:45.

many are full to be teenagers. One of Mexico's most famous

:00:46.:00:49.

footballers denies connections with a Mexican cartel.

:00:50.:00:55.

To get in touch with us, hashtag BBC OS.

:00:56.:01:09.

There has been a second deliberate drowning of migrants off the coast

:01:10.:01:17.

of Yemen. 19 people have died and more are missing. This is the second

:01:18.:01:22.

incident in as many days. On Wednesday, 50 people died after

:01:23.:01:26.

being pushed off a boat by smugglers fearing arrest. This information is

:01:27.:01:34.

coming from the UN's migration agency and this was told us.

:01:35.:01:43.

This is the same modus operandi. 150 people this time. They're worth your

:01:44.:01:56.

people 22 or 23, who were the same age, same profile. But they were

:01:57.:02:03.

trying to dropped in the sea close to the shore. It is may be linked to

:02:04.:02:11.

the fact that maybe they have lost control at the borders and the

:02:12.:02:15.

smugglers are panicking but the reaction was worse. Because instead

:02:16.:02:20.

of preventing them entering they're basically continued their business

:02:21.:02:21.

by killing people. We think the victims

:02:22.:02:23.

were trying to get to Yemen - despite the ongoing conflict there,

:02:24.:02:25.

it's still seen as a gateway And other migrant routes

:02:26.:02:28.

remain just as active. It's from Cadiz, in Spain -

:02:29.:02:36.

it shows a migrant boat arriving Holiday-makers in their swimsuits

:02:37.:02:55.

are shocked, seeing the migrants running ashore and trying to evade

:02:56.:02:58.

the authorities. Joining me is James Copnall,

:02:59.:03:00.

World Service Africa editor. I asked him about the Yemen story,

:03:01.:03:08.

why Yemen was attracting so many migrants.

:03:09.:03:11.

I don't think it is Yemen, it is a way of getting to richer Gulf

:03:12.:03:20.

countries. It is geography, it is across the water from Somalia and

:03:21.:03:24.

closed Ethiopian. People have numerous routes to go to places

:03:25.:03:27.

where they think they will get a better life. These people chose to

:03:28.:03:32.

go the short sea trip, though quite a dangerous one, the Yemen with the

:03:33.:03:36.

hope of going on other Gulf countries where could get a job and

:03:37.:03:42.

live that better life. And the people traffickers, who are

:03:43.:03:45.

basically dumping migrants into the sea, this could have been happening

:03:46.:03:50.

and we haven't realised it? It's possible, but there is lots of

:03:51.:03:54.

monitoring of that situation and the UN migration agency say that this

:03:55.:03:58.

seems to be a new trend. What seems to be happening is that the

:03:59.:04:03.

smugglers get near the coast, they see an authority figure, they think

:04:04.:04:06.

there is a risk of being arrested, and they put people into the sea.

:04:07.:04:11.

They also say that people seem to be beaten or held at gunpoint whereas

:04:12.:04:15.

in other cases it has been less violent. It does seem to be

:04:16.:04:19.

something of a new dimensional and obviously a worrying one for people

:04:20.:04:22.

trying to make their way across that of water.

:04:23.:04:35.

To Afghanistan where people were taken and 230 hostages released

:04:36.:04:44.

after elders and provincial offices struck a deal with the militants who

:04:45.:04:49.

had taken them. We have scenes of several hostages being reunited with

:04:50.:04:54.

their families. They are returned to their village here. Many talked

:04:55.:04:58.

about their nightmare experiences at the hands of the militants. Others

:04:59.:05:03.

were angry at the government and security forces for failing to

:05:04.:05:04.

protect them. The ones who were killed... The

:05:05.:05:31.

religions have taken my son with them who was about to get married.

:05:32.:05:35.

This is about incompetent officials not being able to provide security.

:05:36.:05:41.

Afghanistan was the president has vowed revenge but left questions

:05:42.:05:46.

unanswered about what this means for Afghanistan's wider fight against

:05:47.:06:00.

insurgents. Unfortunately, we are hearing this from several parts of

:06:01.:06:04.

Afghanistan. Several people have been killed intentionally although

:06:05.:06:10.

the Taliban are denying it. The local people who spoke to the BBC

:06:11.:06:14.

are saying that a number of civilians were killed, even children

:06:15.:06:18.

and elderly. Tanya Barron contradicts that. It is important,

:06:19.:06:23.

the fighting is going in an area which is considered a gateway to the

:06:24.:06:29.

provincial capital of this province. -- Caliban contradicts that. It is

:06:30.:06:39.

the first time they have gone into this area. The government has been

:06:40.:06:45.

challenged how to retake the province. The people there are

:06:46.:06:49.

saying it is a narrow area and will be challenging for the government to

:06:50.:06:55.

take it back soon. If it is confirmed independently that the

:06:56.:06:59.

Taliban and IS are cooperating, which in my view is impossible, it

:07:00.:07:03.

would be a big blow for the government. And as far as civilians

:07:04.:07:08.

are concerned, the people are giving horrific pictures from the area. If

:07:09.:07:13.

it is independently confirmed, it would be a disastrous thing and it

:07:14.:07:18.

will force the Afghan government to do more in the area though the

:07:19.:07:24.

Afghan president has recently claimed that he will take revenge on

:07:25.:07:30.

all the killings on the area. The Attorney General of Afghanistan said

:07:31.:07:35.

that the crimes committed in the area while war crimes and those who

:07:36.:07:41.

have done it could be brought to international court of justice.

:07:42.:07:47.

A South African man kidnapped in Mali has his geeky about his

:07:48.:07:59.

experiences. He was taken after beer restaurant in the budget with three

:08:00.:08:04.

other tourists. One was killed after the attack, others have been freed.

:08:05.:08:07.

This report from Milton and cosy. Free at last. Stephen McGowan told

:08:08.:08:23.

reporters of the fact that the biggest blow with the death of his

:08:24.:08:26.

mother who passed away while he was kept hostage. I am angry that I was

:08:27.:08:33.

not released prior to this. I was aware that my mother was sick --

:08:34.:08:37.

they were aware that my mother was sick. But I must let go of this. He

:08:38.:08:48.

also said that he had converted to Islam of his own accord without his

:08:49.:08:53.

captor is forcing him to. It a lot has changed since he was taken

:08:54.:08:57.

hostage six years ago in Timbuktu. When I asked in what his reaction

:08:58.:09:03.

was to find that Donald Trump is now the President of the United States,

:09:04.:09:10.

this is what he said. Donald Trump... I know he is making... From

:09:11.:09:17.

the major Eugene side, they say he is making enemies that they are

:09:18.:09:20.

pleased because they say it is good for Islam because there will be more

:09:21.:09:24.

mujahedin getting into war to fight America. That is their view. My

:09:25.:09:30.

view, I'm just in the moment. McGowan has dual citizenship, here's

:09:31.:09:37.

South African but also holds a British passport. But he made every

:09:38.:09:41.

effort to downplay his UK connection because he did not want to attract

:09:42.:09:48.

further hostility. It took a long time for the British state is to

:09:49.:09:51.

fall away. My family were pushing for this and I was pushing for this

:09:52.:09:56.

because it is dangerous to be British, I think. I think American,

:09:57.:10:02.

French and British are the top forms. At one stage, he thought he

:10:03.:10:06.

was going to be next when he witnessed a German hostage being

:10:07.:10:12.

shot and killed with an AK-47 rifle just a few feet away from him. He

:10:13.:10:17.

was taken hostage at gunpoint while on tour in Mali after finishing a

:10:18.:10:23.

stint of work in London. McGowan, his father and the head of the

:10:24.:10:27.

charity organisation which assisted them, could not admit or deny

:10:28.:10:30.

whether a ransom was paid to Al-Qaeda for his release.

:10:31.:10:41.

Stay with us. Still to come, when Mexico's most famous footballers

:10:42.:10:45.

denies links with a drug cartel. A leading charity is warning that

:10:46.:11:00.

the number of rough sleepers in England, Scotland and Wales is set

:11:01.:11:07.

to soar. The charity, Crisis, is highlighting the problem of sofa

:11:08.:11:10.

surfing web people bear down on other people's houses.

:11:11.:11:15.

It's nice when you know you've got a sofa to go to.

:11:16.:11:18.

That night you know you're going to be comfortable.

:11:19.:11:20.

It might last today, it might last tomorrow,

:11:21.:11:22.

but then that's it, I'm back out on the streets again.

:11:23.:11:25.

He goes from one house to the next, sleeping on friends' couches to try

:11:26.:11:30.

It gets to you a little bit because you've got your friendship

:11:31.:11:34.

with your friends, you're happy they have looked after

:11:35.:11:36.

you for a little bit, and then you know you've got to go.

:11:37.:11:39.

Then again, you're sitting there thinking every day,

:11:40.:11:41.

"Right, it's a struggle, what am I going to do

:11:42.:11:43.

What have I got to get motivated for?

:11:44.:11:46.

Today's report suggests more than 68,000 people

:11:47.:11:49.

It's a hidden type of homelessness because it goes

:11:50.:11:53.

Campaigners say it's on the rise and will get worse

:11:54.:11:59.

For those sleeping rough, their patience is wearing thin.

:12:00.:12:07.

That's why people drink a lot and are on drugs.

:12:08.:12:15.

I don't blame them because they can't live.

:12:16.:12:19.

It's not difficult to find people like this here in Leicester City

:12:20.:12:27.

centre who say they have no choice but to sleep on the streets.

:12:28.:12:31.

This man says he's been homeless for years, and he believes the main

:12:32.:12:34.

drivers for homelessness are drugs and mental health problems.

:12:35.:12:40.

He now helps those who have nowhere to go.

:12:41.:12:44.

We have new things like legal highs now that are coming out.

:12:45.:12:47.

People who are in chaos, got nowhere to turn,

:12:48.:12:50.

will take these legal highs and it just makes homelessness a bit more

:12:51.:12:53.

harder because it's hard to engage with these people.

:12:54.:12:57.

The Government says it's investing more than ?500 million

:12:58.:12:59.

It says new legislation that will be implemented next year will put

:13:00.:13:05.

pressure on councils to do more to help rough sleepers.

:13:06.:13:09.

I'm fed up of living like this, sick of it.

:13:10.:13:12.

Most days I don't make enough for what I need

:13:13.:13:17.

You're watching Outside Source,. Our lead story, Donald Trump has said

:13:18.:13:43.

his previous statements on North Korea might not have been tough

:13:44.:13:47.

enough. Meanwhile, North Korea is claiming it could be ready to fire

:13:48.:13:53.

four ballistic missiles into the US territory of Guam in the next few

:13:54.:13:57.

days. And other stories making the news. This is the Fukushima nuclear

:13:58.:14:07.

power plant in Japan. An unexploded bomb has been found in the car park

:14:08.:14:11.

there. This is the same plant that suffered a reaction -- reactor

:14:12.:14:19.

meltdown. A popular Saudi singer has been arrested for damning. Dabbling

:14:20.:14:25.

is a dance move which involves tugging your hair is the crook of

:14:26.:14:33.

your arm because it is -- it is dad -- banned in Saudi Arabia because it

:14:34.:14:37.

is thought to refer to marry one use. -- marry one -- drug use.

:14:38.:14:57.

One of Mexico's most famous footballers has denied accusations

:14:58.:14:59.

by the US Treasury Department that he's connected with

:15:00.:15:01.

Rafa Marquez - who's played for the likes of Barcelona

:15:02.:15:04.

and Monaco and captained his country in a record four World Cups -

:15:05.:15:08.

has given a voluntary declaration to the Mexican Attorney General's

:15:09.:15:11.

He has also said that he would cooperate with any investigation.

:15:12.:15:23.

Today, I am the subject of an investigation by the Treasury

:15:24.:15:28.

Department of the US for alleged facts relating to a criminal

:15:29.:15:33.

organisation. I categorically deny any relation with those

:15:34.:15:38.

organisations. I clarify that I have not and never participated in any of

:15:39.:15:43.

those organisations. Let's get more on this story

:15:44.:15:45.

and speak with Juan Pallier from BBC How big a star is he in his home

:15:46.:16:00.

country? He is the most loved football in the country. It is

:16:01.:16:05.

almost a religion. And it is quite successful as well. He won two

:16:06.:16:10.

championships with Barcelona but he has been a key and influential

:16:11.:16:14.

member of his national team and he was hoping to become next year, the

:16:15.:16:20.

first one to captain a team at five World Cups. He may still achieve

:16:21.:16:23.

this but right now his biggest challenge is off the pitch. What is

:16:24.:16:29.

the US Treasury saying about how they believe he may have acted as a

:16:30.:16:34.

front man? What is the allegation which he has denied? He is among a

:16:35.:16:40.

list of 21 Mexicans sanctioned by the US Treasury for having allegedly

:16:41.:16:47.

links with drug cartels here in the country. In the case of Rafah

:16:48.:16:54.

Marquez, the authorities said he was using nine of his companies, like

:16:55.:17:01.

his footballer Cammy Day, -- his football academy, this foundation,

:17:02.:17:06.

to hold funds for an alleged drug trafficker. Someone who according to

:17:07.:17:10.

the US has been working independently and for different drug

:17:11.:17:17.

cartels for three decades in Mexico. The US said that this is the largest

:17:18.:17:24.

action of this kind against a Mexican drug cartel network and in

:17:25.:17:28.

total, 42 organisations in Mexico were sanctioned. We have only got a

:17:29.:17:34.

minute left on the programme. But this must be stirring up a lot of

:17:35.:17:38.

debate in Mexico? Of course, this has been a massive shock in a

:17:39.:17:46.

country or to these drug related stories. But this is the first time

:17:47.:17:51.

that such a high-profile personality is directly linked with a drug

:17:52.:17:56.

cartel and many people are seeing this as just another dismal proof of

:17:57.:18:03.

how deeply ingrained the Mexican cartels are in society and

:18:04.:18:08.

therefore, how hard it is to tackle them. We do of course have time for

:18:09.:18:16.

Outside Source sport. We will get you an update on the world athletics

:18:17.:18:19.

Championships. The women's 400 metres hurdles has

:18:20.:18:33.

just taken place. Cardle United States with the gold. The Olympic

:18:34.:18:39.

champion also of the US took the silver. The Jamaican with the

:18:40.:18:45.

bronze. The men's triple jump, interesting. Christian Taylor set

:18:46.:18:51.

out to break the world record set by Britain's Jonathan Edwards. That did

:18:52.:18:56.

not materialise but you took the gold. He fought back after losing

:18:57.:19:02.

the lead. Clay finished with the silver that there was a big win.

:19:03.:19:08.

Christian and a wristband saying that the record of 18.29 -- the

:19:09.:19:20.

record of 18.29 remains. The men's 200 metres final, 200

:19:21.:19:26.

metres final with icicle Kuala coming up. He is up up against wage

:19:27.:19:35.

then the Kirk -- the defending champion. A Turkish athlete won his

:19:36.:19:43.

semifinal. Mitchell Blake of Great Britain runs in lane one. It

:19:44.:19:47.

promises to be a belter. Hopefully we can get the result in before the

:19:48.:19:54.

end of the programme. Now, some good news. Taking a

:19:55.:19:58.

vitamin supplement could cut the number of miscarriages and help

:19:59.:20:02.

prevent birth defects. Those were the findings of a landmark study

:20:03.:20:07.

from Australia. It has in the New England Journal of Medicine. A

:20:08.:20:12.

deficiency in a key molecule prevents embryos and baby's organ is

:20:13.:20:17.

developing in the womb and that could be solved by taking this

:20:18.:20:22.

vitamin. We are talking about B three, a common dietary supplement

:20:23.:20:26.

found in foods like... C of I can bring those foods up for you. Those

:20:27.:20:32.

like peanuts, chicken and turkey. This has been hailed by Australia's

:20:33.:20:37.

health minister as an historical medical breakthrough. Here is the

:20:38.:20:44.

lead researcher on the study. We identified that a deficiency in a

:20:45.:20:49.

molecule resulted in babies being born with birth defects and resulted

:20:50.:20:55.

in multiple miscarriages. So this means that we have been able to show

:20:56.:21:00.

in some experimental models that we can actually prevent those birth

:21:01.:21:04.

defects and miscarriages with vitamin D3. This brings hope to many

:21:05.:21:09.

people who undergo miscarriages and birth defects each year that

:21:10.:21:13.

something as simple as a dietary supplement might be able to prevent

:21:14.:21:17.

them from having to endure defects and miscarriages. The thing is, some

:21:18.:21:24.

women may not be able to get the full complement of niacin from their

:21:25.:21:27.

foods or even from Marty by the men's. So this research highlights

:21:28.:21:34.

that there are women at risk of having low fight and levels and that

:21:35.:21:42.

-- low vitamin levels and that predispose them to having babies

:21:43.:21:45.

with birth defects. We need to identify those women and which women

:21:46.:21:52.

who even though they have a healthy diet and maybe taking multivitamins,

:21:53.:21:56.

which women have low levels of NAD and how much niacin we need to give

:21:57.:22:01.

them to prevent the birth defects and the miscarriages. Several

:22:02.:22:09.

leading supermarkets have moved salads and savages from the shelves

:22:10.:22:13.

because they could contain Dutch eggs contaminated with a banned

:22:14.:22:17.

insecticide. The British Food Standards Agency says that 7000 --

:22:18.:22:23.

700,000 such eggs have been distributed over the UK, is

:22:24.:22:27.

significant increase over the initial estimate of 21,000 eggs.

:22:28.:22:33.

Danish authorities said that many eggs have been distributed around

:22:34.:22:34.

Denmark. This Belgian farmer has had

:22:35.:22:37.

to destroy not just his eggs The produce contaminated

:22:38.:22:41.

with Fipranol, an insecticide which is banned for use

:22:42.:22:44.

in the food chain. But that's where it has ended up

:22:45.:22:46.

on a potentially massive scale. TRANSLATION: You cannot put your

:22:47.:22:50.

eggs on the market for three months. And so I took the decision

:22:51.:22:54.

to kill the animals The company which came to clean

:22:55.:22:58.

and treat the red lice with a so-called organic product

:22:59.:23:04.

really used Fipranol. We have all been

:23:05.:23:07.

fooled by the seller. More than 100 farms are affected

:23:08.:23:10.

in the Netherlands too, Millions of eggs have now been

:23:11.:23:16.

pulled from supermarket The reason, Fipranol may be popular

:23:17.:23:23.

for getting rid of fleas on pets Here in the UK, we produce our own

:23:24.:23:28.

eggs but also import them. And some of the eggs from affected

:23:29.:23:37.

farms have ended up here as well. We're not talking about fresh eggs

:23:38.:23:42.

we buy off supermarket shelves. The affected eggs went

:23:43.:23:46.

into processed foods like sandwich A few days ago the Food

:23:47.:23:51.

Standards Agency said Sounds a lot but that is just .007%

:23:52.:23:56.

of all the eggs we eat every year. There is no reason why people

:23:57.:24:11.

should avoid eating eggs. Our assessment is it is very

:24:12.:24:14.

unlikely it is a public health risk. People need to not have food

:24:15.:24:17.

which contains a substance that Four supermarkets are

:24:18.:24:22.

withdrawing a limited number Others will already

:24:23.:24:27.

have been consumed. Yet another food scare,

:24:28.:24:32.

highlighting just how complex supply chains can be and how easily

:24:33.:24:36.

problems can spread. Just time to bring you this update.

:24:37.:24:55.

Donald Trump says he is close to making a decision on the US military

:24:56.:25:00.

effort in Afghanistan. Thanks for joining us on Outside Source.

:25:01.:25:08.

Hello. The weekend is not looking too bad weather wise but then in the

:25:09.:25:16.

next week, it stays on the unsettled side. Let's look at more detail.

:25:17.:25:19.

August so

:25:20.:25:20.
