This is BBC World News Today, with me, David Eades. Out with the old,

:00:13.:00:18.

in with the new, as Britain expels Libya's remaining diplomats and say

:00:18.:00:23.

that the rebel councillors the sole governmental authority.

:00:23.:00:25.

We are inviting the National Transitional Council to appoint a

:00:25.:00:30.

new diplomatic envoy to take over the embassy.

:00:30.:00:35.

Learning the lessons while the pain persists - Norway's government

:00:35.:00:37.

announces a commission to discover how the killings could have

:00:37.:00:41.

happened. London makes a splash as it begins

:00:41.:00:51.

the countdown to the 2012 Olympics. Uniting the world and sound - the

:00:51.:00:57.

BBC Proms celebrates the universal appeal of music. -- uniting the

:00:57.:01:07.
:01:07.:01:07.

world in sound. Hello and welcome. The

:01:07.:01:10.

international drive to remove Muammar Gaddafi from power has been

:01:10.:01:15.

reinforced today. Britain has declared that the National

:01:15.:01:18.

Transitional Council is the legitimate government authority. It

:01:18.:01:22.

is expelling the remaining diplomats in London and a new

:01:22.:01:26.

ambassador has been named. It is preparing to unfreeze millions of

:01:26.:01:33.

pounds of Libyan assets. The rebels have turned the screw on Gaddafi.

:01:33.:01:35.

They say they are no longer prepared to allow him to stay in

:01:35.:01:42.

the country if he does stand down. The green flag of Colonel Gaddafi's

:01:42.:01:47.

Libya. Today's moved to treat the rebels as the government is a

:01:47.:01:51.

significant boost for them, Britain following the US and France in

:01:51.:01:54.

intensifying the pressure on the regime.

:01:54.:01:58.

We no longer read -- recognise them as the representatives of the

:01:58.:02:01.

Libyan government and we invite the National Transitional Council to

:02:02.:02:05.

appoint a new Libyan diplomatic envoy to take over the embassy in

:02:05.:02:09.

London. Libya's Embassy in London is in

:02:09.:02:14.

Knightsbridge. The ambassador was expelled in. Now the charge

:02:14.:02:19.

d'affaires has three days to leave. Other diplomats must go as well and

:02:19.:02:26.

Britain will unlock �91 million of assets from the Libyan oil

:02:26.:02:30.

companies -- oil company. This is an important symbolic moment,

:02:30.:02:33.

especially for the small group of rebel supporters who have come here

:02:33.:02:38.

hoping to replace the flag of Colonel Gaddafi's regime with their

:02:38.:02:44.

own. The question is what difference it will make underground.

:02:44.:02:48.

Joining the demonstrators, a former financial adviser at the embassy,

:02:48.:02:53.

who was sacked when he showed his support for the rebels.

:02:53.:02:57.

Translation mack this is very positive. It is a psychological

:02:57.:03:01.

boost. We will be able to use the fund to help the Libyan people and

:03:01.:03:04.

hopefully this is just the beginning.

:03:04.:03:09.

Colonel Gaddafi still commands support in Libya, particularly in

:03:10.:03:13.

Tripoli, the capital. It is difficult to gauge how much in a

:03:13.:03:19.

regime like his but increasingly the Benghazi based National

:03:19.:03:21.

Transitional Council is being recognised internationally and the

:03:21.:03:26.

political battle against the regime is heating up amid a military

:03:26.:03:31.

stalemate. There are several front lines. Close to Brega, to the west

:03:31.:03:37.

of Misrata, and to the West of Tripoli. But there has been no

:03:37.:03:41.

decisive shift to give the rebels the momentum they need. They might

:03:41.:03:46.

have been four months of Nato bombing, much longer than Britain

:03:46.:03:50.

hoped Gaddafi would last. So instead it is turning up the

:03:50.:03:54.

diplomatic pressure. The Government, under pressure itself under the

:03:54.:04:00.

lead -- over the Libyan campaign. Let's get some more on this. We can

:04:00.:04:04.

cross to our Oxford studio and speak to Oliver Miles, the former

:04:04.:04:09.

British ambassador to Libya. Why do you think it has taken this long

:04:09.:04:13.

for the government to follow suit after the Americans and the French

:04:13.:04:20.

and others? I think William Hague partly explained that. I think

:04:20.:04:24.

there are a number of reasons. The circumstances of each country are

:04:24.:04:31.

different. One important Ewan was that the large number of Libyan

:04:31.:04:36.

students in Britain who are dependent on money coming through

:04:36.:04:40.

the embassy. It would have been wrong, I think, to have rushed to a

:04:41.:04:44.

solution which would have left them without support. I have done

:04:44.:04:49.

nothing wrong, they don't support - - don't deserve to lose their

:04:49.:04:53.

support. William Hague said that he was pretty confident that the way

:04:53.:04:58.

this has been handled means they will not suffer. You're looking

:04:58.:05:02.

more at the practicalities of the decision rather than a strategic

:05:03.:05:11.

move? Yes, the two are not really to be separated. It has its

:05:11.:05:15.

symbolic importance of course and it is all part of a movement to

:05:15.:05:20.

increase the pressure on Gaddafi. There were to decisions taken by

:05:20.:05:28.

the British government today. -- two. If you can sift out two points

:05:28.:05:31.

from the quite long presentation that William Hague gave, one was

:05:31.:05:34.

the decision to recognise the National Transitional Council as

:05:34.:05:41.

the only legitimate authority in Libya, which is new. Previously

:05:41.:05:46.

they were recognised as legitimate but not the only legitimate

:05:46.:05:50.

authority. Secondly, the decision to dismiss from Britain the

:05:51.:05:55.

remaining diplomats in the Libyan embassy. Neither of those are

:05:55.:05:58.

tremendously important in themselves but taken together with

:05:58.:06:01.

other actions we have been taking and our allies have been taking

:06:01.:06:05.

they are increasing the pressure. We are talking about four months

:06:05.:06:10.

after the bombing campaign began. Are you surprised by what some

:06:11.:06:15.

people would say is how little has been achieved? No. I think that

:06:15.:06:18.

anybody who thought this matter could be settled by air power was

:06:18.:06:24.

deceiving himself. There are very strong reasons for thinking it

:06:24.:06:27.

would be difficult and it would take time. Nobody could tell how

:06:27.:06:31.

long it would take. What was interested to see that William

:06:31.:06:33.

Hague was emphasising not only that we can't predict how long it will

:06:34.:06:38.

take but also that we will go on as long as it takes, and I think that

:06:38.:06:43.

is an important political point as well as being true, I imagine. But

:06:43.:06:47.

it increases the pressure -- the idea that the military pressure is

:06:47.:06:53.

not going to go away. Transparency, openness, and a

:06:53.:06:56.

commission to investigate how Norway's nightmare happened. If

:06:56.:07:00.

that is the message the Prime Mr Jens Stoltenberg delivered today.

:07:00.:07:06.

He said the country would not be intimidated by Friday's killings.

:07:06.:07:09.

Police continue fit -- to search for people reported missing after

:07:09.:07:19.

the shooting on the motorway or Ireland. -- b Utoeya Island.

:07:19.:07:24.

Norway's bomb squad. Abandoned suitcase has been spotted and the

:07:24.:07:27.

bus is empty. It was harmless but Norwegians are haunted by what

:07:27.:07:32.

happened five days ago. This was the moment last Friday when a

:07:32.:07:37.

massive car-bomb launched a massacre. Anders Breivik went on to

:07:37.:07:41.

shoot scores of young people on the island of Utoeya. They were

:07:41.:07:47.

supporters of the governing Labour Camp -- Labour Party. More

:07:47.:07:50.

survivors told their stories today. Was there a time when you thought

:07:50.:07:59.

you would not have -- survive? Are you through the worst? I think

:07:59.:08:03.

the worst of it will be to know all of the names of people who are dead.

:08:04.:08:08.

It will be hard to go to the funerals, to meet the families, and

:08:08.:08:12.

I think it will be hard to one day wake up and realise that we have to

:08:12.:08:20.

get back to light, back to work and try to function as normal.

:08:20.:08:26.

This woman was lucky. She left the island two hours before the

:08:26.:08:30.

shootings. She wants to stress her pride in Norway's multiculturalism

:08:30.:08:34.

and the tolerance that Breivik wanted to destroy.

:08:34.:08:38.

My story tells a lot about the opportunities that Norway gives to

:08:38.:08:44.

all youngsters. Including Muslims? Yes. In how many other countries

:08:45.:08:50.

can you be the daughter of immigrants and become a

:08:51.:08:55.

parliamentary servant at the age of 28. In Oslo, the buildings scarred

:08:55.:09:01.

by the bombing started to be patched up but Norway's collective

:09:01.:09:05.

sense of shock is still profound. The physical damage will take

:09:05.:09:08.

months to prepare. The government is warning that some buildings will

:09:08.:09:12.

have to be demolished but of course it is the psychological damage that

:09:12.:09:18.

is of far greater concern. But most Norwegians seem certain that it is

:09:18.:09:22.

their strong shared values that will get them through the difficult

:09:22.:09:32.
:09:32.:09:33.

days and weeks to come. We can go to Oslo live now and

:09:33.:09:37.

speak to Mohammad Usman Rana, a Muslim commentator. We heard that

:09:37.:09:42.

Norway is the land of opportunity for all sorts of backgrounds. Has

:09:42.:09:52.
:09:52.:09:55.

this change to Norway for you? -- changed. No. Norway will not change

:09:55.:09:59.

with its multiculturalism and unique openness. Norwegians are

:09:59.:10:06.

very certain that we can't change our openness, we can't change our

:10:06.:10:11.

liberal state and we will try to preserve that. When you first heard

:10:11.:10:18.

of this appalling event, did you have a sense of anxiety that people

:10:18.:10:22.

would start, at least symbolically, pointing the finger at you and

:10:22.:10:32.
:10:32.:10:32.

other Muslims in the country? think the terrorist attack is

:10:32.:10:36.

serious and devastating for Norwegians independent of whether

:10:36.:10:45.

it was a Muslim extremist or her right wing extremists, but of

:10:45.:10:50.

course, since this was an attack committed by a Norwegian extremist,

:10:50.:10:57.

this emphasises that terrorists do not have religion and that

:10:57.:11:01.

Norwegians have to unify. Actually, be positive outcome of this

:11:01.:11:06.

terrorist attack is that we Norwegians stand even more united.

:11:06.:11:10.

I just wondered if you feel in any way that Norway has perhaps

:11:10.:11:16.

perversely paid the price here for being... You have described it as a

:11:16.:11:19.

well-functioning multicultural society. Perhaps it is that ability

:11:19.:11:23.

to bring everybody else into the community that in this case has

:11:23.:11:32.

cost it dear. Yes, I mean, Norway compared to other European

:11:32.:11:35.

countries is a very well- functioning multicultural society.

:11:35.:11:40.

We do not have get the widest neighbour heard lights you have in

:11:40.:11:46.

London and Bradford. - Matt Giteau neighbourhoods. -- ghetto

:11:46.:11:56.

neighbourhoods. What is important now is to analyse what radicalised

:11:56.:12:01.

this not -- young Norwegian to become a terrorist, exactly like

:12:01.:12:06.

Muslims have to examine how some Muslim terrorists misuse Islam to

:12:06.:12:13.

commit terrorism we also have to examine why some right-wing

:12:13.:12:18.

extremists, where they get their ideology from and what made them

:12:18.:12:23.

radicalised. I am sure there will be a long period of analysis. Thank

:12:23.:12:27.

you very much. Let's take a look at some of the

:12:27.:12:31.

day's other news. Reports from Syria say that security forces have

:12:31.:12:36.

launched an attack on a town near Damascus. Troops reinforced by

:12:36.:12:43.

tanks killed at least 11 civilians in Kay, activists say. -- in

:12:43.:12:48.

Kanaker. A suicide bomber has killed the

:12:48.:12:52.

mayor of the southern Afghan city of Kandahar. Ghulam Haidar Hameedi

:12:52.:12:57.

was meeting tribal elders when he died. A spokesman for the Taliban

:12:57.:12:59.

said that they carried out the attack.

:12:59.:13:04.

Police in China say they have rescued 89 kidnapped babies during

:13:04.:13:07.

operations to break up child smuggling gangs. The police told

:13:07.:13:12.

state media that they had arrested more than 100 people in southern

:13:12.:13:17.

provinces on suspicion of trafficking baby girls. The report

:13:17.:13:21.

said some of the babies had been brought into China from Vietnam.

:13:22.:13:25.

Torrential rain described as the worst in a century has triggered

:13:25.:13:30.

landslides in South Korea, killing at least 28 people. Worst hit was

:13:30.:13:37.

the northern city of Chuncheon. Buildings were hit by a torrent of

:13:37.:13:42.

mud and debris. Parts of the capital were also flooded.

:13:42.:13:46.

The Arab Spring protests in Yemen have left the country in political

:13:46.:13:50.

you -- political limbo. President Ali Abdullah Saleh was badly burned

:13:50.:13:55.

in a bomb attack last month and is recuperating in Saudi Arabia.

:13:55.:13:59.

Political opponents say that the President refuses to enter into

:13:59.:14:05.

negotiations for political change. Now, look at the country's

:14:05.:14:10.

political impasse. Army tanks are regular sight on the

:14:10.:14:15.

streets in Yemen. These elite forces in Taiz have been battling

:14:15.:14:18.

with opposition protesters. The President, President Ali Abdullah

:14:18.:14:23.

Saleh, has not been in the country for weeks. His palace became a

:14:23.:14:28.

battle zone in June and he was airlifted to Saudi Arabia for

:14:28.:14:31.

medical treatment for serious burns. This picture of him was broadcast

:14:31.:14:37.

on Yemen -- Yemeni television three weeks ago. The country has been in

:14:37.:14:42.

political stalemate since he left. Before his departure, Western

:14:42.:14:44.

governments had been pressurising the President to sign a plan to

:14:44.:14:50.

hand over power but he backed out of signing three times.

:14:51.:14:56.

TRANSLATION: there is political will with a large number of leaders

:14:56.:15:00.

and they are what -- are aware that the situation has worsened so much

:15:00.:15:03.

that the people can't tolerate these conditions.

:15:03.:15:09.

A militants associated with Crewe have been ramping up their efforts

:15:09.:15:18.

in the south. -- with Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Opponents

:15:18.:15:23.

see it as a ploy to convince foreign governments that only the

:15:24.:15:31.

government can deal with the militants. Both its -- it seems

:15:31.:15:35.

that the calls of the opponents to change are being ignored, with

:15:35.:15:44.

I'm now joined here in the studio by the Yemeni foreign minister, Dr

:15:44.:15:51.

Abu Bakr Al-Qirbi. How close are you to dialogue with the opposition

:15:51.:16:00.

now? The we have already started the dialogue, by the Vice President

:16:00.:16:07.

and some leaders of the opposition, some representatives of the joint

:16:07.:16:11.

meeting parties. Or two about the transitional council? We are

:16:11.:16:14.

looking at this situation where there is a pre- requisite here that

:16:14.:16:19.

the president accepts he can no longer hold office, and that still

:16:19.:16:23.

will not happen. I'd been the President has already declared that

:16:23.:16:31.

he is not going to run for election for a second time, that his son

:16:31.:16:41.

will also not run. That clearly is not enough, though, is it. This is

:16:41.:16:44.

the response of the President. It cannot go every day and changing

:16:44.:16:49.

demands. I think people now have Bisset and agree on a road map for

:16:49.:16:53.

a transition that will lead to the transfer of power. The but it is

:16:53.:16:57.

fair to say, isn't it, that what built up to the President being

:16:57.:17:01.

bred in his own presidential palace, albeit whether we call it tribal

:17:01.:17:06.

rivalries or whatever, was a real conflagration of violence in the

:17:06.:17:10.

capital, and the President was at the heart of it. He has moved out

:17:10.:17:16.

and things have calmed down. think they have calmed down because

:17:16.:17:21.

the President's first instructions after the attack on his life, and

:17:21.:17:28.

also the lives of many leaders of the government, this was really a

:17:28.:17:36.

terrorist attack, I think. You cannot look at it as part of the

:17:36.:17:42.

political situation in Yemen. This is a terrorist attack. And one has

:17:42.:17:45.

to wait for the results of the investigation and see who is

:17:45.:17:49.

responsible for it. Let me ask you this. You have acknowledged that

:17:49.:17:52.

the President says he will not stand again. How important is the

:17:52.:17:57.

President now for the future of the country? He is important to see

:17:57.:18:01.

that there is a proper and safe transition of power in Yemen.

:18:01.:18:05.

yet that will not happen as long as he is there, according to many of

:18:05.:18:10.

the opposition. This is one part of the story. On the other side, I

:18:10.:18:16.

think the ruling party says his presence will allow for a use for

:18:16.:18:20.

transfer of power, because he is not running. He has already acted,

:18:20.:18:26.

I think, with the greatest responsibility after that attempt

:18:26.:18:30.

on his life. He has ordered that there should be no revenge, that

:18:30.:18:35.

they should be no actions that will lead to a civil war. I think he has

:18:35.:18:39.

also had eight operations, so he is clearly not a man in great shape.

:18:39.:18:45.

The UN Secretary General's envoy has said this is a country close to

:18:45.:18:51.

collapse. Would you go along with that? I think the country faces a

:18:51.:18:56.

very serious political crisis, yes. I think the collapse will depend on

:18:56.:19:01.

how the opposition and the Government take full responsibility

:19:01.:19:04.

in addressing the challenges of getting in and out of this crisis.

:19:04.:19:07.

Thank you very much. It's not true of every Olympic

:19:07.:19:11.

Games that the venues are put on display a year ahead of schedule.

:19:11.:19:14.

But London is putting on a show already - such is the confidence

:19:14.:19:17.

here that everything is running to plan. Babita Sharma is at the

:19:17.:19:24.

Aquatic Centre in the Olympic Park for us.

:19:24.:19:28.

Thank you. The show is faring much under way here. Welcome to east

:19:28.:19:32.

London. I'm inside the Aquatics Centre, which has been the

:19:32.:19:35.

centrepiece of what has been happening here today, marking a

:19:35.:19:41.

year to go to the false start of the opening ceremony of the London

:19:41.:19:44.

2012 Olympics. It is a very impressive building. It is one of

:19:45.:19:49.

pride -- five permanent venues that have actually been completed today.

:19:49.:19:55.

One man who got a taste for the pool was the British medal hope for

:19:55.:19:59.

diver Tom Daley, who within the last 10 minutes also took to the

:19:59.:20:03.

top of the diving board to acknowledge the crowd surrounding

:20:03.:20:11.

him as he took that dive. A very iconic moment, he described it for

:20:11.:20:19.

himself and an historic moment for the young 17-year-old. This houses

:20:19.:20:23.

some 17,005 unexpected as who will come here to the capital to watch

:20:23.:20:28.

the events. It is interesting. Many people have been talking about the

:20:28.:20:32.

legacy of the London 2012 Olympics. We don't know what I will be

:20:32.:20:35.

perhaps and in many years to come and will we know the true extent of

:20:35.:20:38.

how these games will be remembered. But our correspondent has been

:20:38.:20:44.

looking at the legacy of the Beijing Olympics in 2008.

:20:44.:20:48.

We are here at the Bird's Nest Stadium, which is a symbol of what

:20:48.:20:54.

would -- what was a hugely successful Olympic Games. Beijing

:20:54.:20:58.

spent $14 billion according to some estimates. That is far more than

:20:58.:21:02.

London is spending. We're just going to go inside not speak to a

:21:02.:21:06.

top Chinese official about the preparations which the City took in

:21:06.:21:12.

order to host what is a massive event. A year ahead of the Olympics

:21:12.:21:22.
:21:22.:21:22.

here in Beijing, where were you at? TRANSLATION: At that time, we held

:21:22.:21:27.

the one year can dance ceremony in Tiananmen Square. It is a crucial

:21:27.:21:32.

time. The Kop, of course, is ticking. The key issue is making

:21:32.:21:40.

sure that every deadline is met. -- the key issue. Do you have any tips

:21:40.:21:50.
:21:50.:21:51.

or advice for London? Make sure that the Olympics complement the

:21:51.:21:54.

city's development. When we built the new infrastructure for the

:21:54.:22:02.

Olympics, it improved everybody's standard of living.

:22:02.:22:07.

Just ahead of the Olympics, Beijing went on a building binge. But it

:22:07.:22:11.

wasn't a sports venues. It was subway lines and airport terminal,

performers from Mongolia, Greenland and Zambia. David Hannah was at the

rehearsals. Music, universal language for the

globe. That was the idea behind a unique Prom concert at the Royal

Albert Hall. The inspiration came from a BBC Tullett -- a television

Tomorrow, it is really the cloud which will dominate first thing in

But there will be some sunny spells at times. Across Wales, does much
