This is BBC News. Me. A deal in principle on the US debt America's

:00:15.:00:18.

political leaders finally agree prevent the Government running out

:00:18.:00:23.

of cash. At what price? Are all politicians onboard? Neither side

:00:23.:00:29.

got what they wanted. But it is the essence of compromise. A second day

:00:29.:00:34.

of violence in Syria, tanks have continued to target protestors in

:00:34.:00:41.

the city of Hama. Norway remembers the 77 people killed in last

:00:41.:00:46.

month's attacks. The Prime Minister warns against a witch hunt. And

:00:46.:00:51.

they are the flowers which have captivated millions. Now the

:00:51.:00:54.

inspiration for Monet's famous masterpieces are getting a new

:00:54.:01:04.
:01:04.:01:14.

Welcome. There have been weeks of uncertainty but now politicians in

:01:14.:01:21.

the US are poised to vote on a deal to avert an unprecedented debt

:01:21.:01:25.

default. The plan thrashed out between Republican and democratic

:01:25.:01:30.

leaders would raise the country's debt ceiling. Also includes the

:01:30.:01:34.

same amount in spending cuts. There are still objections on both sides

:01:34.:01:40.

and the plan still needs approval in the US Congress. From Washington

:01:40.:01:43.

our correspondent has the latest and this piece contains flash

:01:43.:01:49.

photography. Another day of frenetic activity on Capitol Hill.

:01:49.:01:53.

Law makers gathering to hear ha their leaders have agreed to and

:01:53.:01:57.

give their verdict. Last night after weeks of uncertainty the

:01:57.:02:02.

President said the talking was over. I want to announce ta the leaders

:02:02.:02:07.

of both parties have reached an agreement, that will reduce the

:02:07.:02:11.

deficit, and avoid default. The default that would have had a

:02:11.:02:14.

devastating effect on the economy. So what do we know about the deal

:02:14.:02:21.

on the table? First of all, it sets a new debt ceiling of $16.7

:02:21.:02:27.

trillion. It says future Government spending should be cut by $1

:02:27.:02:33.

trillion and establishes a con Greggsal committee to come up with

:02:33.:02:38.

deeper cuts. Joe Biden is in Congress to help seal the deal

:02:38.:02:41.

unwilling to sound too confident. There is plenty for everyone to

:02:41.:02:45.

dislike about the plan. The top Democrat in the Senate is holding

:02:45.:02:51.

his nose. Even as he sells it. one got what they wanted. Even had

:02:51.:02:55.

to give something up. People on the right are upset, people on the left

:02:56.:03:01.

are upset. People in the middle are upset. It was a compromise. On Wall

:03:01.:03:05.

Street, which never really doubted that a deal would be done, markets

:03:05.:03:09.

rose this morning. The latest dismal US manufacturing news then

:03:09.:03:14.

sent them down again. This has been a bruising ugly fight. Further

:03:14.:03:18.

eroding public faith in Congress. The deal if it passes helps to stop

:03:19.:03:23.

the rot. But underlying debates about the size and function of

:03:23.:03:33.

Government rage on. To discuss this I am joined by journalist, author

:03:33.:03:38.

Geoff mad rick for the New York Times. Good to see you. What do you

:03:38.:03:42.

think we have seen on Capitol Hill? Has it been a political debate

:03:42.:03:46.

about what is best for the American economy or a political debate about

:03:46.:03:51.

what is best for Republicans or Democrats? Well it has ban

:03:51.:03:54.

political debate about Republicans and Democrats. Certainly it is not

:03:54.:03:59.

what is best for the economy. We averted perhaps and we don't know

:04:00.:04:05.

yet, an iceberg but we are still in rough seas, and there maybe more

:04:05.:04:09.

out there. Maybe that is not the best metaphor because cutting

:04:09.:04:16.

spending now, in an economy that is so weak, will probably weaken this

:04:16.:04:22.

economy further, meaning higher unemployment. Less investment. Less

:04:22.:04:25.

consumer spending and no wage increases. I can't see how the

:04:25.:04:31.

American people will enjoy that, in a way they have been conned into

:04:31.:04:35.

thinking an answer is cutting the size of Government right now, and

:04:35.:04:40.

it isn't. But the Republicans and Democrats are both trying to score

:04:40.:04:46.

political points and I think what is guiding President Obama most is

:04:46.:04:50.

a re-election campaign. This is to longer about the best economic

:04:50.:04:56.

policy for America but how to position yourself for November 2012.

:04:56.:04:59.

Wet President Obama has more tweet followers when he appealed for

:04:59.:05:03.

people to tweet him and other politicians on Capitol Hill. How do

:05:03.:05:09.

you think he has come across in this situation? I think he is

:05:09.:05:14.

probably given what I have said, done pretty well. I think he has

:05:14.:05:18.

portrayed himself as a mild mannered sensible person, in this

:05:18.:05:24.

debate, and I think for a while, people will respect that, so in

:05:24.:05:30.

that sense n I think he has come accomplished his political goal.

:05:30.:05:35.

The problem is the economy may not accommodate that goal. That has

:05:35.:05:41.

been his problem since the bad loss in 2010. His White House has

:05:41.:05:46.

interpreted that loss as a message that they have to cut Government

:05:46.:05:51.

spending, that the Government's too big, that spending is hurting, the

:05:51.:05:57.

deficits are enormous and promise to be enormous. In my view at least,

:05:57.:06:01.

and your viewers should t "no" know a lot of people agree with that, in

:06:01.:06:04.

my view and the much more correct view and many economists believe

:06:04.:06:11.

this, jobs were the issue, the lack of jobs, and this agreement will

:06:11.:06:17.

not create jobs in America and get the growth path back to 3-4% a year

:06:17.:06:21.

that is necessary to get the unemployment rate down to any kind

:06:21.:06:26.

of reasonable level. OK. We must leave it there. Than you for

:06:26.:06:30.

speaking to us. For the second day in a row, Government forces in

:06:30.:06:33.

Syria have opened fire on protestors. On Sunday, more than

:06:33.:06:37.

one hundred people were killed in attacks across the country. Today

:06:37.:06:40.

the European Union announced further sanctions on Syria, and the

:06:40.:06:43.

UN Security Council is preparing to hold an emergency meeting to

:06:43.:06:48.

discuss the situation. Foreign journalists are restricted from

:06:48.:06:52.

reporting freely within Syria, so Jim Muir sent this report from

:06:52.:07:00.

Beirut. It was army day in Syria. A chance for the President to thank

:07:00.:07:04.

his military for all it is doing, to protect the nation from the

:07:04.:07:09.

plots he says are being woven against the country. And the army

:07:09.:07:19.
:07:19.:07:21.

is paying a price.. Almost every day there are military funerals.

:07:21.:07:29.

Today at least half a dozen killed in yesterday's clashes. Up in Hama

:07:29.:07:35.

the army's role is not seen as so heroic. These are some of the tanks

:07:35.:07:42.

the Government says never went into the city. Tank shells machine guns

:07:42.:07:45.

and sniping claimed score of civilian lives according to

:07:45.:07:50.

activists. It was one of the bloodiest days since the up rising

:07:50.:07:54.

began more than four months ago. It stirred widespread international

:07:54.:07:59.

condemnation.. We were very shocked by what happened yesterday. There

:07:59.:08:02.

has never within any justification for what has been going on. You

:08:02.:08:06.

can't justify attacking civilians who are exercising their right to

:08:07.:08:10.

democratic protest. You can't send in the tanks and attack them like

:08:10.:08:14.

that. We have condemned in it in the strongest possibly terms.

:08:14.:08:19.

of Hama seems to be against the regime. It has had the biggest

:08:19.:08:22.

protest rallies anywhere. For the past month, the city has been

:08:22.:08:27.

virtually taken over by its own people. That is why the regime felt

:08:27.:08:33.

it had to three to take it back and will surely try again. Civilians

:08:33.:08:38.

are in danger but they say they don't want outside intervention.

:08:38.:08:45.

no, no, not at all. We refuse all military interference, just we need

:08:45.:08:52.

political support for our opinions, we don't want, we will continue our

:08:52.:08:57.

peaceful up rising without weapons, even if they shoot us, kill us we

:08:57.:09:02.

won't use weapons. It is in the International Arena that part of

:09:02.:09:07.

the battle is being waged. Syrian nationals have been stages for and

:09:07.:09:11.

against the Government. The European Union's preparing to

:09:11.:09:14.

announce more punitive economic sanctions. And there is growing

:09:14.:09:19.

pressure for a UN Security Council meeting to condemn the Syrian

:09:19.:09:24.

regime. China, Russia and others are against, though Moscow has said

:09:24.:09:29.

the violence against civilians must stop. They are put off by the messy

:09:29.:09:34.

NATO operation in Libya. The Syrian people are paying the price for

:09:34.:09:41.

what is perreceived -- perceived as an endless intervention in Libya.

:09:41.:09:45.

So China and Russia are saying we are not signing up again, but the

:09:45.:09:51.

problem is, that by refusing to act, they are allowing the massacres to

:09:51.:09:56.

continue, so the Syrian people are paying for the mistakes being made

:09:56.:10:03.

in Libya. The up shot is that the President does not have to worry

:10:03.:10:07.

about international intervention. The diplomatic and economic

:10:07.:10:14.

pressures might have a cumulative effect, but that is in the long run.

:10:14.:10:18.

Four-and-a-half months on the up rising shows no sign of petering

:10:19.:10:23.

out but this ruthless regime is far from sure and clearly it isn't

:10:23.:10:30.

imminent. Protestors and troops have clashed in Egypt's Tahrir

:10:30.:10:34.

Square, hundreds of protestors have been camped out for the past three

:10:34.:10:38.

weeks. Trouble started as military police moved in to dismantle their

:10:38.:10:42.

tents for Ramadan. They had been calling for fast erreforms

:10:43.:10:47.

following the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak last February. The BBC's

:10:47.:10:51.

correspondent is in Cairo and joins me now on the phone from Tahrir

:10:51.:10:55.

Square. What is the scene there now at the moment? Well, let me

:10:55.:11:01.

describe what I am seeing at the moment. Opposite me are two

:11:01.:11:08.

armoured vehicles, and to my left, a police vehicle, in the main round

:11:08.:11:13.

about normally where the tents are supposed to be, they are now

:11:13.:11:17.

completely gone. None whatsoever, no protestors whatsoever, instead

:11:17.:11:23.

the ring is filled with military police, almost to the brink really.

:11:23.:11:31.

To my left, police is everywhere and they are cordoning off the

:11:31.:11:36.

complex, the big building. Not a protestor to be found and this of

:11:36.:11:40.

course follows from when the army have gone in, earlier today, taken

:11:40.:11:46.

down all the tents, arrested a dozen people, and they were

:11:46.:11:51.

reporting clashes between the army and protestors. How stable is Egypt

:11:51.:11:57.

at the moment? Sorry I didn't catch that. Just how stable is Egypt at

:11:57.:12:00.

the moment? It appears that tensions continue to rise?

:12:00.:12:05.

Absolutely. It is a very very tense situation at the moment and it was

:12:05.:12:09.

promising to be a tense Ramadan from the beginning. I mean, you

:12:09.:12:14.

know, there were clashes between shop owners and protestors

:12:14.:12:23.

yesterday, the atmosphere is very tense, some people are very

:12:23.:12:29.

sceptical, saying this is a display on the council's part to address

:12:29.:12:35.

people nothing is going to happen, and the ex-President Hosni Mubarak

:12:35.:12:40.

is not going to be brought to justice according to some. We have

:12:40.:12:43.

yet to hear from the protestors about their next movement, whether

:12:43.:12:48.

or not they are going to return to the square at any point. Many

:12:48.:12:53.

thanks. Now, a look at some of the day's other news stories. Aid

:12:53.:12:57.

agencies have launched a vaccination campaign against polio

:12:57.:13:04.

and measles in Dadaab area. A refugee camps in the Wajir district,

:13:04.:13:10.

aid agencies fear an outbreak of disease. The huge number of

:13:10.:13:15.

refugees fleeing smar ya make it a mammoth task. According to the UN

:13:15.:13:21.

there are 380,000 registered refugees and mow authorise on the

:13:22.:13:24.

fringes of the camps. The Italian authorities say they have found the

:13:25.:13:30.

bodies of 25 people in the hold of -- hold of a boat crossing the

:13:30.:13:34.

Mediterranean to Lampedusa. According to survivors, the 15

:13:34.:13:40.

metre boat was carrying nearly 300 people and set sail from Libya two

:13:40.:13:44.

days ago. BBC News programmes on radio and television have been

:13:44.:13:48.

affected by a 24-hour strike by journalists, the second in two

:13:48.:13:52.

weeks. Members of the National Union of Journalists, the NUJ have

:13:52.:13:57.

walked out to protest that 400 people in The World Service and BBC

:13:57.:14:02.

monitoring have been made redundant against their will. The Cuban

:14:02.:14:06.

President Raul Castro will address the nation at the National Assembly

:14:06.:14:10.

today, to push through economic reforms. The plan will allow people

:14:10.:14:15.

to buy property and set up small businesses, it would involve

:14:15.:14:19.

eliminating a million public Seb for jobs. The singer Amy

:14:19.:14:24.

Winehouse's father has today pleaded with the Government to

:14:24.:14:27.

reform drug rehabilitation centres for youngster, his daughter's

:14:27.:14:32.

battles with drink and drugs before her death led Mitch wine house to

:14:32.:14:37.

make a plea to politicians for better services for addicts.

:14:37.:14:41.

Norwegian police say the man accused of the killings in Norway

:14:41.:14:46.

ten days ago was seen with another man in the days before the attacks.

:14:46.:14:50.

Anders Behring Breivik was reportedly seen buying fertiliser

:14:50.:15:00.

with a man outside a depot in Oslo and spotted w on a boat. The

:15:00.:15:02.

Norwegian Royal Family joined politicians to remember the 77

:15:02.:15:12.
:15:12.:15:14.

A shrine to the fallen. So many flowers and candles now surround

:15:14.:15:18.

Oslo's cathedral that other impromptu memorials have sprung up

:15:18.:15:28.

around Norway's capital. Today, at the country's parliament, the

:15:28.:15:32.

Storting, politics was put aside as the King and Crown Prince led a

:15:32.:15:38.

memorial for each of Anders Behring Breivik's 77 victims. As relatives

:15:38.:15:42.

of some of those who died watched on, the Prime Minister said all of

:15:42.:15:50.

Norway had lessons to learn. Translation I ask, from this podium,

:15:51.:15:57.

that we do not start a witch-hunt. The unity we have shown calls for

:15:57.:16:04.

continued generosity. We all have something to learn from the tragedy.

:16:04.:16:10.

It was, perhaps, the most unusual meeting in the parliament's 197

:16:10.:16:16.

year history. The music of Norwegian violinists are very

:16:16.:16:22.

jealous and replacing political debate. -- and Norwegian violinist

the bomb attack, 9,000 workers and able to return to their offices.

They have been told to extend their summer holidays until the key Repp

:16:35.:16:40.

is complete. Turkey must improve its border

:16:41.:16:44.

controls before it is allowed to join the European Union. That is

:16:44.:16:48.

the assessment from a group of British parliamentarians concerned

:16:48.:16:52.

about both people and drugs being smuggled into Europe. They have

:16:52.:16:55.

also called for an assessment of how many Turks would youth -- moved

:16:56.:17:02.

to the UK if they were part of the On the map, Turkey seems physically

:17:02.:17:07.

distanced from its EU member neighbours. The country shows only

:17:07.:17:12.

a tiny fraction of its border with Bulgaria and Greece. The greatest

:17:12.:17:16.

book of his boundary lies in the East, leading to Iran, Iraq and

:17:16.:17:20.

Syria. And that is what is worrying the Home Affairs Committee, turning

:17:21.:17:24.

their attention away from the phone hacking scandal for the time being.

:17:24.:17:28.

Keith Vaz and his colleagues are concerned the spread of the EU to

:17:29.:17:32.

incorporate Recep Tayyip Erdogan would leave Britain full report,

:17:32.:17:42.
:17:42.:17:44.

thanks to Turkey's vulnerable -- Turkey's neighbours. Already up to

:17:44.:17:48.

80% of heroin traffic from Afghanistan into the EU comes via

:17:48.:17:53.

Turkey. On top of that, they say, the border between Turkey and

:17:53.:17:59.

Greece is currently the biggest live coal from illegal immigrants.

:17:59.:18:03.

People who come illegally from Turkey, not Turkish people but

:18:03.:18:06.

Afghans and Syrians and Moroccans and from every nationality in the

:18:06.:18:11.

world, they want to come and settle in London. Or they want to go to

:18:11.:18:16.

Western Europe. They do not want to stay in Turkey. So our border

:18:16.:18:19.

actually at the moment is the border between Greece and Turkey.

:18:19.:18:23.

That is why it is so vital for our security. The home affairs

:18:23.:18:27.

committee is calling on Britain and other EU countries to help Turkey

:18:27.:18:30.

strengthen its border against unwanted attention from its

:18:30.:18:35.

troubled neighbours before it can hope to join the EU.

:18:35.:18:40.

A key meeting has begun to elect the new military top brass for

:18:40.:18:43.

Turkey after the country's chief of staff resigned in protest last week.

:18:43.:18:48.

The four-day military Security Council, meeting in Ankara, began

:18:48.:18:52.

with a visit to Ataturk's memorial. The commander stepped down after

:18:52.:18:56.

ongoing tension and the arrest of dozens of generals in alleged coup

:18:56.:19:00.

plot. To discuss that we are joined by

:19:00.:19:05.

Fadi Hakura, from the London-based think-tank at Chatham House. A lot

:19:05.:19:08.

of focus on Turkey at the moment. We just saw there that it has been

:19:08.:19:12.

put under more pressure to improve its have human rights record, its

:19:12.:19:17.

border controls, as it comes into the YE. And yet we have these

:19:17.:19:20.

admirals who have kind of pushed Turkey back decades. What is going

:19:20.:19:25.

on? Essentially, the civilian authorities have taken over control

:19:25.:19:29.

of the military. This caused the resignation of the military is

:19:29.:19:35.

senior command. It was a manifest of their weakness now, in the

:19:35.:19:40.

ongoing tensions between the military and the Government.

:19:40.:19:43.

yet the European Union and NATO is looking at Turkey as a very

:19:43.:19:48.

important ally in the war against terrorism and to control the move

:19:48.:19:51.

of terrorism around the country. Do you think this would not that kind

:19:51.:19:56.

of confidence in the country? not think so can stop it has been a

:19:56.:19:59.

long time coming. It has been a process where the power of the

:19:59.:20:02.

senior military commanders has been diluting in favour of the civilian

:20:02.:20:05.

Government and what has really happened in the last few days is a

:20:05.:20:09.

full consolidation of the Government's control over the

:20:09.:20:12.

military branch of Government. do you think will happen now over

:20:12.:20:17.

the coming weeks? The Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Tayyip

:20:18.:20:22.

Erdogan, now enjoys unparalleled power in modern Turkish history. He

:20:22.:20:28.

will seek to appoint military commanders that are very closely

:20:28.:20:35.

aligned to the Government. Thank you. Fadi Hakura from Chatham House.

:20:35.:20:39.

The Indian Government is due to introduce a new anti-corruption

:20:39.:20:41.

bill in the monsoon session of Parliament which gets under way on

:20:41.:20:46.

Monday. It's big issue in India after the mortar billion-dollar

:20:46.:20:51.

Telecom scandal. -- it is a big issue.

:20:51.:20:56.

For India's billion strong population, corruption is part of

:20:56.:21:01.

daily life. Paying bribes is a matter of course. But now it has

:21:01.:21:05.

taken on new proportions. Creating underground economies of

:21:05.:21:11.

unaccounted many, valued at anywhere between $500 billion and

:21:11.:21:15.

one trillion dollars. Over the years, Indians have come to accept

:21:15.:21:19.

corruption as something they have to live with. But there are signs

:21:19.:21:23.

of this attitude changing. There are no longer willing to take it

:21:23.:21:27.

lying down. Part of this is because as India has got richer, the scale

:21:27.:21:30.

of corruption has reached incredible heights, involving

:21:30.:21:34.

millions and millions of dollars. And over the past couple of years,

:21:34.:21:37.

we have had a number of high- profile cases involving senior

:21:38.:21:42.

Government officials, scandals that have gripped the country and

:21:42.:21:48.

disgusted ordinary Indians. In February, a former Cabinet minister

:21:48.:21:53.

was arrested in connection with a Telecom scandal. It is estimated to

Many believe big businesses or equally culpable. The big

businesses wishing to India were very much part of the corruption.

It is not about petty corruption. It is at the height levels. It is

governments. Many now realise that India's growing culture of

corruption could undermine its ambition to become the next global

superpower. It is a garden immortalised in

paint which inspired one of the great artists. Monet lived at

:23:00.:23:04.

Giverny near Paris for more than 40 years and his paintings of the

:23:04.:23:08.

gardens there have been applied by millions. The gardens still attract

:23:08.:23:11.

thousands of visitors each year and are kept as Monet designed them.

:23:11.:23:21.
:23:21.:23:22.

And there is a new head gardener, It is not a French garden.

:23:23.:23:32.
:23:33.:23:33.

Certainly not an English garden. It is, of course, a painter's garden.

:23:33.:23:38.

Claude Monet spent 53 years and his bra home in his Giverny,

:23:38.:23:44.

immortalising on canvas the garden he had created. Today it is the

:23:44.:23:49.

responsibility of James Priest, the new English head gardener. It is

his job to bring the impressionist's masterpieces back

:23:58.:24:02.

knows a Monet picture comes back to this garden and can recognise what

:24:02.:24:06.

they have seen. There is something beautiful, romantic, familiar about

:24:06.:24:10.

this garden that any body with a little bit of sensitivity, poetry

:24:10.:24:18.

in them, can find when they come and visit. Monet did not like

:24:18.:24:22.

organised or constrained gardens. He married flowers according to

:24:22.:24:27.

their colours and left them to grow freely. He planted his garden, or

:24:27.:24:33.

part of it, a here just to get flowers to paint and a Rayleigh day.

:24:33.:24:37.

And little by little, he was caught by the fever of gardening. It made

:24:37.:24:42.

the garden more intense and interesting. He had seven Gardens

Before we go, a bit of sport. England have beaten India by 319

with the home side having a 2-0 lead in the four match series. What

England have been a far better side in the first Test and this Test as

They hide -- they have some great coaches and they should be asked

that question. I do not understand. England in England are a very, very
