This is BBC World News Today with me, Tim Wilcox.

:00:08.:00:11.

Rising tensions between Afghanistan and the coalition as the 16 Afghan

:00:11.:00:16.

victims of a US soldier are buried. The Afghan parliament calls for the

:00:16.:00:19.

attacker to be put on public trial, in Afghanistan - US officials

:00:19.:00:25.

promise a full and thorough investigation.

:00:25.:00:28.

This is not who we are and the United States is committed to

:00:29.:00:34.

seeing that those responsible are held accountable.

:00:34.:00:38.

Allegations of a massacre in the city of Homs in Syria as the UN

:00:38.:00:47.

calls on the international More civilian casualties on a

:00:47.:00:49.

fourth day of violence between Israeli forces and Palestinian

:00:49.:00:56.

militants in Gaza. Also coming up in the programme: As

:00:56.:00:59.

the South African government admits that 80 per cent of state schools

:00:59.:01:06.

are failing. 20 years on from the end of apartheid, why is education

:01:06.:01:11.

for black children still so poor? And he danced, he ran and he messed

:01:11.:01:14.

about on the beach - is Prince Harry the British royal family's

:01:14.:01:24.
:01:24.:01:32.

Hello and welcome. In the villages of Kandahar in Afghanistan, they've

:01:32.:01:36.

been burying their dead today. 16 victims, nine of them children, of

:01:36.:01:40.

an American soldier, all shot in their homes in the early hours of

:01:40.:01:43.

Sunday. Hillary Clinton called the attack 'inexplicable', adding 'this

:01:43.:01:49.

is not who we are.' Local elders though told the BBC that there

:01:49.:01:52.

would be no further protests, as long as the man responsible for the

:01:52.:01:55.

killings was brought to justice. From Kabul, the BBC's Quentin

:01:55.:02:05.
:02:05.:02:20.

Nine children have now been buried. Translation macro if he did this

:02:21.:02:25.

deliberately, he should be punished, otherwise it would raise many

:02:25.:02:30.

questions. The Taleban would benefit and become stronger.

:02:30.:02:33.

come and Inverdale went to the House of Muslims and massacred

:02:33.:02:40.

children and women? I feel very sad. Even I am ready to go to the side

:02:40.:02:43.

of the Taleban to fight against these foreigners.

:02:43.:02:47.

We know that the killer was a regular soldier who was working for

:02:47.:02:52.

Special forces. 11 years in the army, he was fully armed and

:02:52.:02:55.

wearing night-vision goggles when he carried out the attack. He was a

:02:55.:02:59.

guard at the base, making it easier for him to come and go from the out

:02:59.:03:05.

past -- the outpost in Kandahar. He left the place at 3am local time.

:03:06.:03:12.

He walked to these nearby villages and there he travelled from door to

:03:12.:03:17.

door, some were locked. But he made his way inside one home. There, he

:03:17.:03:21.

gathered together the family and killed all 11 with a single bullet

:03:21.:03:27.

each. Then five more in another two houses, the children were mostly

:03:27.:03:30.

toddlers. President Obama was shocked and saddened by the

:03:30.:03:34.

killings which he said were not representative of US military

:03:34.:03:39.

forces. In a call to President Karzai, he promised a full

:03:39.:03:45.

investigation. This will not affect the mission in Afghanistan for the

:03:45.:03:50.

United States. The mission is going to suffer and it is very tragic,

:03:50.:03:54.

but it would be far greater a tragedy to let this affect what we

:03:54.:04:00.

are doing for the country. In Kabul, others are more sceptical.

:04:00.:04:03.

President Karzai called the the gimmick -- killings unforgivable.

:04:03.:04:09.

Many are talking about the damage to relations with America.

:04:09.:04:12.

Senior officers are questioning whether this attack was pre-planned

:04:12.:04:16.

and did others know what the soldier's intentions? The Afghan

:04:16.:04:21.

people are asking an even simpler question? Why did a long serving

:04:21.:04:24.

American soldier, and I of Afghanistan, commit such a bloody

:04:24.:04:26.

act? Let's speak to Michael Semple,

:04:26.:04:29.

until last year a fellow in the State Building and human rights,

:04:29.:04:38.

Afghanistan Pakistan programme. He joins us from the States. After

:04:38.:04:43.

such carnage, is the one positive that there hasn't been mass

:04:43.:04:48.

demonstrations that we saw perhaps after the burning of the holy books

:04:48.:04:55.

yet? In Kandahar, people already have suffered so much that they do

:04:55.:05:03.

not have the confidence and the guts to go out and protest. The

:05:03.:05:06.

public order problem is not quite as grave as it was during the

:05:06.:05:10.

previous crisis, but there is a lot of damage to be dealt with. What do

:05:11.:05:15.

you think the long-term impact of this is after the book-burning?

:05:15.:05:19.

Will it have a very deleterious effect on the relationship between

:05:19.:05:21.

the Coalition and the Afghan authorities which will not be

:05:21.:05:28.

resolved? The first people that were going to exploit this are

:05:28.:05:31.

those Caliban who are involved in preparing the spring offensive.

:05:32.:05:36.

They know that everyone in Afghanistan today has seen TV

:05:36.:05:42.

images of young bodies being taken for burial. They will now be using

:05:42.:05:46.

it those in their propaganda videos to persuade the fighters to go out

:05:46.:05:51.

and create further mayhem later. Those are the people who were

:05:51.:05:54.

exploited. In terms of the relationship with the Afghan

:05:54.:05:58.

authorities, they have little option but to co-operate with the

:05:58.:06:02.

United States because they are struggling to have some kind of

:06:02.:06:09.

Garrity and stability of the on the US drawback. What else can they do?

:06:09.:06:14.

We saw the demand for justice for the perpetrators of the book

:06:14.:06:18.

burnings. We have heard calls for the soldiers to be tried in

:06:18.:06:21.

Afghanistan in public, but that will not happen, will it?

:06:21.:06:27.

Absolutely, if I had had an opportunity to give some advice in

:06:27.:06:29.

the years of people sitting in Parliament, I would say call for

:06:29.:06:33.

something that is likely to happen. Calling for something which is not

:06:33.:06:39.

going to happen will create further frustration. This will not happen.

:06:40.:06:43.

He went completely bonkers according to an eyewitness, this

:06:43.:06:47.

man had a nervous breakdown. Is there any sense that President

:06:47.:06:53.

Karzai will be able to sell that to people in Afghanistan, that this is

:06:53.:07:00.

just one at lone rogue individual who just went berserk? There is a

:07:00.:07:03.

real question as to whether it you will be able to sell that to

:07:03.:07:07.

President Karzai himself. Afghanistan is the land of

:07:07.:07:13.

conspiracy theories. When they rock night raids conducted by the US,

:07:13.:07:20.

multiple versions of them circulate. In a strange way, that also

:07:20.:07:24.

explains why the reaction has been somewhat muted, because even if

:07:24.:07:28.

this is the first time that we have seen someone go berserk like this,

:07:28.:07:33.

stories like this have frequently circulated. The difference was the

:07:33.:07:38.

previous ones were invented whereas this one was real. NATO advisers

:07:38.:07:43.

have not gone back into the ministry's following the book-

:07:43.:07:49.

burning. Does this delayed that return yet further? Again there is

:07:49.:07:55.

an issue of what can people do? Some of the mentors who were

:07:55.:08:00.

working inside the ministry's were not necessarily doing important

:08:00.:08:06.

jobs, but an awful lot of them were doing vital jobs. As the US moves

:08:06.:08:10.

towards a draw down, it involves more co-operation with Afghan

:08:10.:08:14.

counterparts rather than less. There is no way the US can do what

:08:14.:08:18.

it must over the next two years by hanging out in their own bases and

:08:18.:08:22.

going out on patrol by themselves. They will have to work closely with

:08:22.:08:25.

the Afghans, trying to piece together the trust which has been

:08:25.:08:30.

badly hurt by the incident of the book-burning and now this massacre.

:08:30.:08:39.

Thank you very much for joining us. The UN Secretary General Ban Ki

:08:39.:08:42.

Moon has described attacks by the Syrian Government on its civilian

:08:42.:08:45.

opponents as "shameful" and accused it of failing in its duty of

:08:45.:08:48.

protecting its own people. Speaking during a meeting of the UN General

:08:48.:08:51.

Assembly, Mr Ban called for unity from the international community to

:08:51.:08:53.

persuade President Assad and the opposition to end the violence and

:08:53.:08:59.

start negotiations. Deeply disturbing images said to be

:08:59.:09:05.

from the Syrian town of Homs. Evidence of a massacre by pro-

:09:05.:09:10.

government gunmen, including children. Damascus blamed on the

:09:10.:09:16.

terrace. There is no disputing there is a -- this month-long siege

:09:16.:09:23.

has left neighbourhoods bombed-out. Such scenes have spurred calls for

:09:23.:09:27.

the world to act yet piloted the impotence of the deeply divided

:09:27.:09:33.

Security Council. This council has so far failed. At this special

:09:33.:09:37.

session called by Britain, Western states denounce the brutality of

:09:37.:09:41.

the regime, but they were countered by Russian warnings about the armed

:09:41.:09:46.

resistance. TRANSLATION: There is no doubt that the Syrian

:09:46.:09:49.

authorities bear a huge responsibility for the situation,

:09:49.:09:53.

but one should not ignore the fact that for a long time they have been

:09:53.:09:59.

fighting combat units such as the so-called free Syrian army and

:09:59.:10:04.

extremist groups including Al-Qaeda which have lately committed a

:10:04.:10:09.

series of murderous to act -- murderous acts. Russia also spoke

:10:09.:10:17.

about an agreement. The Americans are also watching these

:10:17.:10:24.

developments closely. We took no to the fact that this past weekend in

:10:24.:10:30.

Cairo, the Arab League and Russian minister agreed on the necessity of

:10:30.:10:40.
:10:40.:10:47.

We believe that now is the time for all nations, even those who have

:10:47.:10:52.

previously blocked our efforts, to stand behind the humanitarian and

:10:52.:10:56.

political approached start out by the Arab League. Even if the

:10:56.:10:59.

Security Council could finally agree to something on paper,

:10:59.:11:09.
:11:09.:11:12.

getting changed on the ground would still be a daunting task. Now a

:11:12.:11:14.

look at some of the day's other news.

:11:14.:11:17.

At least 100 people have been killed and hundreds more are

:11:17.:11:19.

missing in South Sudan after renewed ethnic violence. Armed

:11:19.:11:22.

attackers from the Murle ethnic group stole thousands of cattle

:11:22.:11:25.

during raids in Upper Nile state. Violence between the Murle and Lou

:11:25.:11:27.

Nuer peoples have left thousands dead since South Sudan became

:11:27.:11:30.

independent last July. There's been a deadly raid in the

:11:30.:11:32.

Iraqi capital Baghdad. Gunmen killed at least nine people when

:11:32.:11:36.

they stormed a row of goldsmiths at a market. Police said some of the

:11:36.:11:39.

attackers shot at passers by while others stole jewellery from the

:11:39.:11:48.

shops. The head of Brazil's Football

:11:48.:11:52.

Association has stepped down from his post. The man who led the

:11:52.:11:55.

Brazilian Football Confederation for 23 years had been under

:11:55.:11:59.

pressure to resign under corruption allegations which he has denied.

:11:59.:12:02.

Here in Britain a High Court judge has decided that a man with what's

:12:02.:12:05.

known as "Locked-In Syndrome" should have his case decided by the

:12:05.:12:08.

court. Tony Nicklinson wants doctors to be able to end his life.

:12:08.:12:11.

He is physically paralysed from the neck down although his mind remains

:12:11.:12:17.

Israeli forces and Palestinian militants in Gaza have clashed for

:12:17.:12:21.

a fourth day in a row, in the worst cross-border violence in over a

:12:21.:12:25.

year. At least 23 people have been killed and dozens wounded by

:12:25.:12:27.

Israeli air strikes since Friday, while two Israelis have been

:12:27.:12:32.

injured by rockets fired from Gaza. The violence was sparked by

:12:32.:12:34.

Israel's killing of a top Palestinian militant leader on

:12:34.:12:44.

Friday. From Jerusalem, Rupert Another day and another funeral in

:12:44.:12:49.

Gaza City. This time it is for a 65-year-old man and his 35-year-old

:12:49.:12:53.

daughter. More than 20 people have been killed here since Friday. It

:12:53.:12:58.

is now the worst violence between Israel and Gaza in three years.

:12:58.:13:04.

Like these two, more casualties are civilians. A ragged cheer and a

:13:04.:13:07.

pool of blood marked the spot where they were killed this morning,

:13:07.:13:12.

caught in an Israeli counter-strike. A few minutes' drive away, the

:13:12.:13:17.

debris of another fresh bomb site. The smell of burning is still

:13:17.:13:21.

pungent in the air. Israel says it's only striking back

:13:21.:13:27.

at militants who are firing rockets out of Gaza, but that is not the

:13:27.:13:29.

weight things work and last night, one of their missiles hit this

:13:29.:13:34.

house in the North of Gaza where 30 members of the same family were

:13:34.:13:39.

sleeping. Amazingly, no one was killed in this destruction. 25

:13:39.:13:42.

members of that family are in hospital, including nine children.

:13:43.:13:47.

The man who owns the house does not deny he supports the militants. One

:13:47.:13:54.

of his sons has been killed fighting the Israelis. TRANSLATION:

:13:54.:13:58.

I have another two sons and I am ready to sacrifice them as well.

:13:58.:14:02.

After what the Israelis have done, I will keep resisting more strongly

:14:02.:14:10.

until the last drop of blood. above the Israeli drones circle.

:14:10.:14:13.

Their powerful cameras hunt for militants, ready to call in a new

:14:13.:14:20.

strike. This began on Friday when Israeli missiles Tora Park this car.

:14:20.:14:25.

Inside was the leader of a Gaza militant group. Israel says an

:14:25.:14:30.

attack by the group is imminent and the Killen justified. Since then,

:14:30.:14:35.

militants in Gaza have hit back, sending more than 130 rockets into

:14:35.:14:39.

towns and cities in southern Israel. In response is where has brought

:14:39.:14:44.

out its latest high-tech answer to the Gaza rockets. It is called the

:14:45.:14:48.

iron dome and its job is to shoot down the rockets before they can

:14:48.:14:53.

hit Israeli towns. The iron dome missiles may make Israelis feel

:14:53.:14:58.

safer, but on both sides of this conflict, a new generation is

:14:58.:15:03.

growing up learning to hate an enemy that it has never seen.

:15:03.:15:05.

Yossi Mekelberg is Associate Fellow of the Middle East Programme at

:15:05.:15:15.

Chatham House. Hamas itself is not involved in is, is there a risk

:15:15.:15:18.

that this could escalate into something more serious? 22 people

:15:19.:15:25.

have already been killed. It always starts with more limited operations,

:15:26.:15:31.

in this case targeting two leaders from the smaller group. The

:15:31.:15:40.

response is firing into Israel of rockets, which is series, but the

:15:40.:15:43.

Israelis reacted disproportionately and we have more than 20 people

:15:43.:15:48.

killed. There is pressure on the government and they must protect

:15:48.:15:58.

These two groups, are they being sanctioned and armed by Hamas

:15:58.:16:04.

choice mack are the Independent ques mack it is Hamas pos mac

:16:04.:16:14.
:16:14.:16:20.

There is a process... There is almost an opportunity to start the

:16:20.:16:25.

process with Hamas and by having this kind of tit-for-tat, it is

:16:25.:16:31.

almost an opportunity for the Israelis to say, you see? You are

:16:31.:16:34.

seeing that even though country macro is being attacked by rockets

:16:35.:16:44.
:16:45.:16:58.

from Gaza, there is an element of Be ironed and system is being able

:16:58.:17:05.

to take out these rockets as they take over. Correct. A signal to

:17:05.:17:10.

Hamas that we are looking at Iran. The talk is about Iran, if it is

:17:10.:17:14.

going to happen, we are still looking at what happens in Gaza or

:17:14.:17:19.

in Lebanon and preparing a case of all in Iran. If you think this

:17:19.:17:22.

would be an opportunity the to attack, we would -- we are prepared

:17:22.:17:28.

for this opportunity. Where do you think we stand in the time frame

:17:28.:17:38.
:17:38.:17:38.

for attack against Iraq. --? The I have also been hearing that he has

:17:38.:17:43.

been influenced by his father. Explain a bit about that and

:17:43.:17:47.

whether that represents a much more hawkish prime minister now than a

:17:47.:17:57.
:17:57.:17:57.

Netanyahu is more of a PR person than the Statesman. Last week it

:17:57.:18:01.

was celebrating the victory of the saviour of the Jewish people from a

:18:01.:18:07.

Persian ruler, to this way you are having a strong reek of the saving

:18:07.:18:13.

of the Jewish people back in Persia, many many many years ago. More

:18:13.:18:23.
:18:23.:18:27.

importantly is this beach in a -- is his speech. The minute that

:18:27.:18:33.

Israel, a Jewish leader, talks about Iran in relation to Nazi

:18:33.:18:38.

Germany and Auschwitz, he locks himself into not a very big

:18:38.:18:45.

diplomatic space. If this is the same analogy it means either Iran

:18:45.:18:50.

stops their nuclear programme or there will be a war. This is very

:18:50.:18:58.

dangerous. Thank you. In South Africa, almost 20 years after the

:18:59.:19:03.

end of apartheid, the state education system is so poor that

:19:03.:19:09.

5,000 children are switching to private schools each year.

:19:09.:19:15.

Ministers admit that 80% of state schools are failing, with appalling

:19:15.:19:25.
:19:25.:19:26.

infrastructure, a shortage of teachers and appalling exam results.

:19:26.:19:33.

Getahead High School, and low-cost private school in Eastern Cape.

:19:33.:19:36.

Most of the children are black and good results and discipline are a

:19:36.:19:41.

top priority, but far from been children from the elite, their

:19:41.:19:46.

families are scraping together the thousands of dollars in fees, let

:19:46.:19:51.

down by state schools. Need 17- year-old Panjwayi and his aunt,

:19:51.:19:58.

Nokwezi. His parents are dead. She cares for him. Swapping their nice

:19:58.:20:02.

flat in a house in a township in order to send him to private school.

:20:02.:20:09.

She is among a growing number of adults are worried that strikes and

:20:09.:20:14.

insecurity of undermining state schools. There is no security for

:20:14.:20:18.

the children. We find out that others are doing drugs, carrying

:20:18.:20:27.

weapons at school. Another day, another class. About half a million

:20:27.:20:32.

youngsters now go into schools like these, a dramatic response in a

:20:32.:20:35.

country where half of all youngsters leave without a

:20:35.:20:38.

secondary school certificate. Affordable private schools are

:20:38.:20:43.

being established right across South Africa. 5,000 children are

:20:43.:20:47.

making the switch every year, and yet the irony is, many of their

:20:47.:20:52.

parents are teachers from struggling state schools. This is

:20:52.:20:59.

Khumzi Madikane, their principal in the school in the Eastern Cape, but

:20:59.:21:04.

despite his best efforts, the head teacher struggles with appalling

:21:04.:21:07.

conditions at his state school. This is a typical example of a

:21:07.:21:12.

toilet that we have in the school. Latrine system. What impact does

:21:12.:21:20.

the poor are infrastructure have? The port infrastructure on the

:21:20.:21:26.

school makes the teachers not to be so interested in teaching in this

:21:26.:21:33.

school. Good afternoon, class. Absenteeism and staff shortages are

:21:33.:21:37.

faced by many state schools. By its own admission, the government says

:21:37.:21:42.

80% of them of failing. Nearly two met for decades after the end of

:21:42.:21:46.

apartheid, corruption, maladministration and neglect are

:21:46.:21:50.

taking their toll on the classrooms, turning the poorest into an

:21:50.:22:00.
:22:00.:22:00.

underclass, as more black families opt for private education instead.

:22:00.:22:03.

His reputation was that of the party prince so some palace

:22:03.:22:06.

officials might have been forgiven for feeling a little nervous about

:22:06.:22:09.

how Prince Harry would shape up on his first official solo trip abroad.

:22:09.:22:13.

Pretty good seems to be the general opinion. The third in line to the

:22:13.:22:15.

British throne visited Belize, the Bahamas and Jamaica to mark the

:22:16.:22:18.

Queen's Golden jubilee, before flying onto Brazil on behalf of the

:22:18.:22:21.

British government. How carefully reined in was Harry by his PR team?

:22:21.:22:24.

Or is Harry quite naturally turning into the royal family secret

:22:24.:22:30.

weapon? In a moment we'll discuss the Prince's Progress with royal

days, I am exhausted, but the warmth of the reception of every

single country we have been two has been utterly amazing. -- we have

Majesty magazine. He has not put a salt wrong? No. -- foot. I know

:23:19.:23:23.

this sounds pompous but the army has made Prince Harry and that is

:23:23.:23:28.

what his brother has said. It has given him the confidence. You would

:23:28.:23:31.

never believe that somebody as a brilliant as Harry lacked

:23:31.:23:35.

confidence but he did and having that background and then going off

on this trip, I think he feels that he can do anything, and he has.

opportunity! But he seems to do it naturally. In the way that his

:23:57.:24:01.

mother did as well. You could not be taught that rapport with

:24:01.:24:06.

children. There seems to be quite a lot of his mother about him.

:24:06.:24:12.

Obviously he is his mother's son, but he does seem to enjoy it. I am

:24:12.:24:18.

not saying he will forever! But that is infectious. He is very

:24:18.:24:22.

charming. He has always been very charming, he has just been a bit

:24:22.:24:27.

naughty! Who are his advisers? Some reports are that Prince William has

:24:27.:24:34.

been in daily contact with him as well. Who other backroom boys?

:24:34.:24:40.

William and Harry share an office in St James's Palace, so he has a

:24:40.:24:44.

small team there, and I am sure William has been on Twitter with

:24:44.:24:49.

him. I don't know if William has been very busy in the Falklands.

:24:49.:24:55.

is probably quite envious of where his brother has been? Absolutely!

:24:55.:24:59.

What about the long-term prospects for somebody like Prince Harry.

:24:59.:25:04.

When you look at Prince Andrew, for example, he had a pretty bad press,

maybe does not have the same ease of manner. Is there the risk that

:25:11.:25:17.

the spare to the air of the throne can fall into bad habits if he is

:25:17.:25:21.

not carefully managed? There is very much a risk and we are not

:25:21.:25:25.

seeing it now because Harry is so dedicated to his Army career and

:25:25.:25:30.

whether he stays in the army, we do not know. He probably doesn't know

:25:30.:25:34.

either. There is always the risk that he will have all the goodies

:25:34.:25:38.

and not have the responsibility and I think that had we need to have a

:25:38.:25:43.

defined role. What it will be, we don't know. His relationship with

:25:44.:25:48.

the press, which Prince William shares with him, is extremely

:25:48.:25:53.

wearing, but do you think he has relaxed on that as well? Apparently,

:25:53.:25:58.

he has relaxed. He has been very charming to the press on this trip

:25:58.:26:02.

and Harry naturally doesn't like the media, nor does William,

:26:02.:26:06.

because they still blame their mother's death on the media, with

:26:06.:26:11.

quite good reason. Henry is one of the boys. There is no point were

:26:11.:26:15.

picking on a few people saying it is their fault. He has been very

:26:15.:26:19.

wide and has made friends with the people on this trip with him, which

:26:19.:26:26.

is great. Ingrid Seward, thank you. The main news: The Afghan

:26:26.:26:30.

parliament has passed a strongly worded resolution about the killing

:26:30.:26:35.

of 16 civilians by a US soldier. He said people had lost their patience

:26:35.:26:40.

with the actions of foreign troops and that the soldier must be tried

:26:40.:26:44.

publicly in an Afghan Court, which is pretty unlikely given immunity

:26:44.:26:49.

from prosecution that the United States demands. That is it. From me

:26:49.:26:59.
:26:59.:27:01.

and the rest of the team, goodbye. On Monday we had warm sunshine for

:27:01.:27:06.

some of us, but much more cold and cloudy conditions elsewhere.

:27:06.:27:10.

Tonight we will see a lot of cloud around but tomorrow we will start

:27:10.:27:15.

to break the cloud up. All the while, it is staying drive

:27:15.:27:19.

underneath a big area of high pressure. The weather system is out

:27:19.:27:25.

in the Atlantic. On Tuesday, we will see a lot of cloud around. The

:27:25.:27:29.

cloudiest weather will be across the north and west of the country.

:27:29.:27:34.

To the east of the Pennines, we should see brighter spells.

:27:34.:27:38.

Slightly more cloud for the south- east corner compared to Monday. As

:27:38.:27:45.

a result a few degrees down on what we have had in recent days. Lloyd

:27:45.:27:50.

winds across the country. Cloudy skies across the south and west of

:27:50.:27:56.

the country -- like winds. Across Wales, where we have got cloudy

:27:56.:28:00.

skies, the temperatures will struggle and for Northern Ireland,

:28:00.:28:08.

it is going to be overcast but dry. The Western Isles of Scotland will
