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

Motivated by a grudge. New details emerge about the Korean gunman who

:00:13.:00:21.

allegedly killed seven people at a university in California.

:00:21.:00:26.

We do know that he was upset with administrators at the school and we

:00:26.:00:29.

know he was upset with several students here because of the way he

:00:29.:00:35.

was treated. A $10 million bounty is offered by the United States for

:00:35.:00:37.

the Pakistani militant accused of masterminding the Mumbai attacks

:00:37.:00:39.

that left 165 dead. The latest fallout from Britain's

phone hacking scandal - James Murdoch resigns as chairman of

BSkyB. Also coming up in the programme,

:00:47.:00:51.

another U-turn from Britain's ruling coalition. The government

:00:51.:00:53.

forced to climb down on the immediate implementation of new

And the name's Bond... For as long as I can. Daniel Craig talks about

:01:03.:01:07.

his hopes to play 007 for as long as possible ahead of this autumn's

:01:17.:01:24.

Hello and welcome. New details have emerged about the man who allegedly

:01:24.:01:27.

shot seven people dead and injured three more at a university in

:01:27.:01:31.

California. One Goh, the 43-year- old former student at the Korean

:01:31.:01:34.

run private Oikos University in Oakland, is said to have become

:01:34.:01:37.

upset about being teased over his English, and angry with officials

:01:37.:01:43.

at the college from which he was expelled several months ago. We can

:01:43.:01:51.

cross live to Los Angeles and our correspondent Peter Bowes. Here we

:01:51.:01:56.

have another American college and another horrendous ordeal. Many

:01:56.:02:02.

questions, questions from a community that has struggled to

:02:02.:02:05.

understand what could have motivated someone to do this, but

:02:05.:02:08.

now we are beginning to get some answers.

:02:08.:02:13.

One Goh is a former nursing student at the college. He is the only

:02:13.:02:16.

suspect in a mass shooting that claimed the lives of seven people.

:02:16.:02:20.

He was arrested in a supermarket car-park a few miles from the

:02:20.:02:25.

University. It was a chaotic and terrifying ordeal at the small

:02:25.:02:29.

private college which caters mainly for the Korean community in Oakland.

:02:29.:02:34.

The motive for the gunmen's rampaged appears to be revenge.

:02:34.:02:39.

According to the local police chief, One Goh was having behavioural

:02:39.:02:44.

problems and was expelled several months ago. He shot seven people

:02:44.:02:49.

and three more are wounded. We know he was upset with administrators at

:02:49.:02:52.

the school and we do know he was upset with several students here

:02:52.:02:56.

because of the way he was treated when he was enrolled here two

:02:56.:03:02.

months ago. One Goh, who was a Korean National, was said to be

:03:02.:03:06.

particularly upset because students made fun of his ability to speak

:03:06.:03:09.

English. The police chief said the gunman appeared to be planning the

:03:09.:03:14.

attack for several weeks. He added that One Goh was co-operating with

:03:14.:03:17.

the authorities, although he said that he had not been particularly

:03:17.:03:24.

resourceful. -- remorseful. The victims range in age from 21 up to

:03:24.:03:28.

40. The suspect is being held without bail on suspicion of murder,

:03:28.:03:34.

attempted murder, kidnapping and car jacking.

:03:35.:03:39.

So, an attack which seems to have been motivated by revenge, which

:03:39.:03:43.

clearly will be of little comfort to those families, the seven

:03:43.:03:47.

families grieving the loss of their loved ones. I understand there will

:03:47.:03:53.

be a memorial service perhaps as early as later tonight in Oakland.

:03:53.:04:03.

Any questions raised about the Sorry, we seem to have lost Peter

:04:03.:04:08.

in Los Angeles. A $10 million reward is being offered by the

:04:08.:04:11.

United States for the capture of Hafiz Mohamed Saeed - the Pakistani

:04:11.:04:14.

man accused of masterminding the 2008 attacks in Mumbai. 165 people

:04:14.:04:18.

were killed when gunmen went on a rampage lasting three days there.

:04:18.:04:21.

Saeed is the founder of the militant group Lashkar-e-Toiba, but

:04:21.:04:24.

now heads a charity called Jamaat- ud-Dawa. Orla Guerin in Islamabad

:04:24.:04:34.

has more. Coming to rally around their leader,

:04:34.:04:38.

Hafiz Mohamed Saeed. This was last week in Islamabad. The black and

:04:38.:04:43.

white flags are from his Islamic charity. It is widely viewed as a

:04:43.:04:49.

front for the band Lashkar-e-Toiba. And here is the man with the $10

:04:50.:04:54.

million bounty on his head. In recent months, Hafiz Mohamed Saeed

:04:54.:04:57.

has been making high-profile appearances at rallies around the

:04:57.:05:06.

country, denouncing India and the US. They accuse him of

:05:06.:05:13.

masterminding the Mumbai attacks in November 2008. After the mayhem and

:05:13.:05:17.

carnage in India, Pakistan put him under house arrest several times,

:05:17.:05:24.

but he was freed by the courts. We caught up with him at this rally

:05:24.:05:29.

near Islamabad in January. What would you say to those who say you

:05:29.:05:33.

planned the attack? I am telling you that the courts have cleared us.

:05:33.:05:38.

The highest court in Pakistan. It is regrettable that people listen

:05:38.:05:44.

to the media, not the courts. you have support from inside the

:05:44.:05:52.

Pakistan military establishment and from the ISI? The Pakistan military

:05:52.:05:56.

is part of Pakistan, so we all have sympathies and contacts with each

:05:56.:06:01.

other. A many believe that he remains a free man here because of

:06:01.:06:07.

longer links with Pakistan's spy agency, the ISI. It helped found

:06:07.:06:11.

Lashkar-e-Toiba but denies protecting it now. While the group

:06:11.:06:15.

was originally formed to fight Indian forces in Kashmir, senior

:06:15.:06:20.

American officials worry that it now has ambitions well beyond this

:06:20.:06:24.

region. Counter-terrorism experts warn Lashkar-e-Toiba could attempt

:06:24.:06:33.

a Mumbai style attack in the United States or Europe. Martin Weinbaum

:06:33.:06:35.

is a former Afghanistan and Pakistan Analyst at the US

:06:35.:06:40.

Department of State's Bureau of Intelligence and Research.

:06:40.:06:45.

Is there much evidence to show that these bounties actually work?

:06:45.:06:52.

don't believe that that essentially is what this is about. I think this

:06:52.:06:56.

is a message to multiple audiences, but primarily the Pakistan

:06:56.:07:01.

establishment. We are not very happy with the fact that extremist

:07:01.:07:06.

groups, and Hafiz Mohamed Saeed is very much a main figure there, are

:07:06.:07:10.

now organising and seem to have the support of the military. We are

:07:10.:07:14.

exasperated by this development and we are also disturbed by the fact

:07:14.:07:20.

that this ongoing process is taking place with a review of the

:07:20.:07:24.

relations, and it is just dragging on and the US is being forced to

:07:24.:07:31.

make concessions. So we finally have the US pushing back. Why now?

:07:31.:07:35.

Because the President is going to be making a trip to India. So we

:07:35.:07:39.

are also sending a message to India that at least, on this issue, we

:07:39.:07:44.

side with India and we are bringing back to the for the subject of

:07:44.:07:47.

terrorism, which has somehow been put aside as we have been focusing

:07:47.:07:52.

so much on Afghanistan. You talk about the symbolism of this, but

:07:52.:07:56.

conversely, doesn't dictate US and Pakistan relations to a new low, if

:07:57.:08:01.

that's possible -- doesn't eat take US and Pakistan relations to a new

:08:01.:08:07.

low? We have reached a point where there are many people in this town

:08:07.:08:12.

who say we keep making concessions towards Pakistan in order to

:08:12.:08:15.

somehow put the relationship back on an even keel but it is about

:08:16.:08:19.

time for them to understand that there are some red lines. And one

:08:19.:08:26.

of those red lines has to do with terrorism and the ambitions -- and

:08:26.:08:30.

their ambitions. I think it is an appropriate time, given the fact

:08:30.:08:33.

that India is coming back into the picture on one hand, and on the

:08:34.:08:41.

other hand the fact that we are so upset by the way in which

:08:41.:08:47.

negotiations have been taking place. He was, of course, arrested but

:08:47.:08:51.

released after the Mumbai attacks. Wouldn't a smarter way be to

:08:51.:08:55.

present irrefutable evidence to the Pakistanis and build a court case

:08:55.:09:00.

against him? That case is already there as far as the Indians are

:09:00.:09:04.

concerned. They have enough evidence that impotence Hafiz

:09:04.:09:10.

Mohamed Saeed in the Mumbai attacks. -- that indicates Hafiz Mohammed

:09:10.:09:19.

Saeed. Finally they have relented and moved towards some kind of

:09:19.:09:23.

reproach went -- reproach malt. But there is not a question of the

:09:23.:09:28.

evidence, it is about the Pakistan courts, and of late it is almost

:09:29.:09:33.

impossible to rest any one Al hold onto them very long. The other

:09:33.:09:36.

issue is that this man is seen in public and really moves around

:09:36.:09:40.

quite freely. Even though his organisation was banned 10 years

:09:40.:09:45.

ago. You s, 10 years ago, and the organisation he moved on to,

:09:45.:09:52.

Jammat-ud-Dawa, the charity when has also been banned by us. As in

:09:52.:09:56.

we have identified as a terrorist organisation. The Pakistanis do not.

:09:56.:09:59.

He goes round the country making statements about not just the US,

:10:00.:10:04.

but also the Pakistan government. Were he anybody else, that would

:10:04.:10:09.

have got him into prison a long time ago. My first question to you

:10:09.:10:14.

was does the Bounty work? Can you think of a time they have ever been

:10:14.:10:21.

paid? I don't think they would. It would require the complicity of the

:10:21.:10:26.

Pakistan security forces and, if anything, they have demonstrated

:10:26.:10:30.

that they consider him useful at this point. Thank you very much for

:10:30.:10:40.
:10:40.:10:42.

joining us. 13 suspected Islamist arrested in the wake of their

:10:42.:10:44.

Toulouse attacks are under formal investigation in France. They were

:10:44.:10:48.

accused of plotting a number of kidnappings including that of a

:10:48.:10:55.

judge in India. The Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev, has

:10:55.:10:57.

reportedly decided against issuing a pardon to the jailed oil tycoon,

:10:57.:11:00.

Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Mr Medvedev ordered a review of the case, amid

:11:00.:11:03.

speculation that he might release Russia's former richest man. He's

:11:03.:11:04.

reportedly decided against pardoning someone who hasn't

:11:04.:11:08.

officially asked for one. The three latest primaries take

:11:08.:11:11.

place on Tuesday in Wisconsin, Maryland and Washington DC, with

:11:11.:11:13.

Mitt Romney looking to edge closer to the Republican presidential

:11:13.:11:18.

nomination. Romney has attacked President Obama

:11:18.:11:21.

in campaigning over the past few days rather than his main

:11:21.:11:25.

Republican rival, Rick Santorum. And an Italian historian has come

:11:25.:11:28.

up with a new theory for the mysterious death of the Renaissance

:11:28.:11:31.

painter Caravaggio, claiming it was a revenge killing by the Knights of

:11:31.:11:34.

Malta. The Professor says his theory is based on documents from

:11:34.:11:38.

the Vatican's secret archive. He argues that the murder, about 400

:11:38.:11:46.

years ago, had the tacit approval Kofi Annan has announced that a

:11:46.:11:49.

United Nations team will arrive in Damascus in the next 48 hours to

:11:49.:11:52.

discuss the deployment of international monitors. The head of

:11:52.:11:55.

the Red Cross is already in the Syrian capital, meeting top

:11:55.:11:57.

officials. But as Jim Muir reports from neighbouring Lebanon, the

:11:57.:12:07.
:12:07.:12:11.

increase in dialogue hasn't yet Activists say the target here was

:12:11.:12:16.

the mosque in the north-west where heavy shelling was still going on

:12:16.:12:20.

on Monday. Syria has committed itself to calling off the crackdown

:12:20.:12:25.

within a week, but for the moment there is no sign of any halt.

:12:25.:12:30.

According to activists, this town was among so many been shelled on

:12:30.:12:35.

Tuesday. Syrian troops and tanks are supposed to be pulling out of

:12:35.:12:39.

tank -- towns and cities already, but this internet footage which we

:12:39.:12:44.

cannot verify purported to show them still in this city on Monday.

:12:44.:12:47.

The Syrians have told Kofi Annan that they agree to his request that

:12:47.:12:51.

they take the first step by pulling the military out of population

:12:51.:12:55.

centres, although they insist the opposition must follow suit and

:12:55.:12:59.

withdraw armed rebels. There is widespread scepticism, but the

:12:59.:13:06.

important thing is that Kofi Annan has got the Russians on board.

:13:06.:13:10.

Kofi Annan's plan states that Syria's government has to take the

:13:10.:13:14.

first step, and we support the initiative. It has to start

:13:14.:13:18.

withdrawing troops, but those who fight against the Syrian government,

:13:18.:13:23.

if they do not follow the example, we will not achieve any results.

:13:23.:13:27.

Hoping for better times, the International Red Cross president

:13:27.:13:31.

was also in Syria for the first time in six months. He wants better

:13:32.:13:37.

access for relief to trouble spots, including A2 our daily truce. He

:13:37.:13:43.

also wants access to the detainees. -- 82 What Our Daily trees.

:13:43.:13:51.

Activists say in the meantime the authorities say they must up

:13:51.:13:54.

demolishing property, including these ones. There are fears that

:13:54.:13:58.

there may be more of this sort of thing as next week's deadline

:13:58.:14:06.

approaches. The uncle of President Bashar Al Assad has been speaking

:14:06.:14:09.

in Paris where he lives in exile. Rifa'at Al Assad says that his

:14:09.:14:12.

nephew's days in office are numbered. He was speaking to our

:14:12.:14:15.

Middle East Editor, Jeremy Bowen, who explained who Rifa'at Al Assad

:14:15.:14:22.

30 years ago he was the most -- second most powerful man in Syria,

:14:22.:14:26.

as he was the right hand man of his brother, he was the first president

:14:26.:14:33.

and the father of basher Al Assad he was the incumbent -- Bashar al-

:14:33.:14:39.

Assad. He became notorious in 1982 when, on his brother's orders, he

:14:39.:14:45.

led a very severe operation against the Muslim Brotherhood uprising and

:14:45.:14:49.

estimates of the killing their start at 10,000. But looking at

:14:49.:14:57.

what is going on at the moment in Syria, and I talked to the

:14:57.:15:02.

President's brother in a grand house, and he has been in exile for

:15:02.:15:06.

since the 80s, and he said that he did nothing but current President

:15:06.:15:13.

could survive the way things are It will be very difficult for him

:15:13.:15:17.

to stay in power. The problems are general to all parts of Syria.

:15:17.:15:19.

There are no places that have escaped violence, so why don't

:15:19.:15:23.

think he can escape -- stay in power. I would say he should stay

:15:23.:15:27.

so he can co-operate with the new government and offer the experience

:15:27.:15:37.
:15:37.:15:37.

He has already bid for power once and it was interesting what he said,

:15:37.:15:43.

that he still thought there was a role to play. Yes, you have to take

:15:43.:15:47.

what he says with a pretty big pinch of salt because this is a man

:15:47.:15:54.

who has been mostly in exile since 1984, when he tried to lead a coup

:15:54.:15:59.

when his brother, the President, was still. It nearly became a civil

:15:59.:16:05.

war, thousands of troops on the street. -- his brother was ill. He

:16:05.:16:10.

has an axe to grind so it is interesting that he said there may

:16:10.:16:15.

not be have -- be a future for Bashar al-Assad but they might be a

:16:15.:16:21.

future for the dynasty. TRANSLATION: Yes, but -- the family

:16:21.:16:26.

is pretty much excepted. The Security Council should monitor

:16:26.:16:34.

free and transparent elections. You will see that the family has a

:16:34.:16:39.

great deal of support. A few months ago he offered to lead a Syrian

:16:39.:16:43.

transition. What sort of support could he command? Because of his

:16:43.:16:52.

past, I think, the things that he did, seen as supporters of Bashar

:16:52.:16:58.

al-Assad as disloyal, means he does not have a political future in the

:16:58.:17:02.

country, but it is interesting listening to his talk -- him talk

:17:02.:17:12.
:17:12.:17:13.

about the support for the Assads, it is an Alawite community, and

:17:14.:17:19.

they have support among Christians and others. That is why, more than

:17:19.:17:27.

a year after the uprising started, he is still in power.

:17:27.:17:30.

James Murdoch, once the heir to his father Rupert's media empire, has

:17:30.:17:32.

now resigned from British Sky Broadcasting, just weeks after

:17:32.:17:34.

standing down as chairman of the newspaper publisher News

:17:35.:17:38.

International. It is the latest fall-out from the UK phone hacking

:17:38.:17:41.

scandal, where a newspaper owned by the Murdochs - the now extinct News

:17:41.:17:43.

of the World - published illegally accessed information about

:17:43.:17:51.

celebrities and politicians. Here is Hugh Pym.

:17:51.:17:55.

James Murdoch was seen as heir apparent at News Corporation, one

:17:55.:18:00.

by his father of Rupert, but may be no longer. The spotlight has been

:18:00.:18:05.

on him since relegations that allegations of fine acting at the

:18:05.:18:10.

news of the world. In February he quit his post running the newspaper

:18:10.:18:14.

business. Now he has decided to stand down as chairman of BSkyB,

:18:14.:18:21.

part owned by News Corporation, although he is staying on the board.

:18:21.:18:25.

The Prime Minister, on a visit to a housing development, gave a brief

:18:25.:18:30.

reaction. It is obviously a matter for him and the company and its

:18:30.:18:36.

shareholders. What I say is that the issues at News Corporation go

:18:36.:18:41.

beyond one person. They are now about how the organisation can

:18:41.:18:47.

restore public confidence. Phone hacking allegations at the news of

:18:47.:18:50.

the world raised questions about James Murdoch did or did not know.

:18:50.:18:54.

The former editor Rebekah Brooks was later questioned by police.

:18:54.:18:58.

James Murdoch and his father were grilled by a Commons committee. Its

:18:58.:19:05.

report is due out within weeks. They also questioned by the Leveson

:19:05.:19:08.

Inquiry. Mr Murdoch said he had behaved ethically at all times but

:19:08.:19:13.

he was aware his role as chairman could become a lightning rod for

:19:13.:19:17.

BSkyB, hence his resignation. Today's boardroom change will not

:19:17.:19:24.

break -- make any difference to Sky viewers. But it is highly

:19:24.:19:26.

significant the James Murdoch personally and his position in the

:19:26.:19:31.

media industry and the Murdoch empire. When he resigned from being

:19:31.:19:35.

head of the press interest in the UK it was said by News Corporation

:19:35.:19:42.

that he would then focus on the TV interest. The fact that he is

:19:42.:19:46.

leaving the crown jewel of News Corporation's TV interest means

:19:47.:19:53.

that he is unlikely to have as -- a consistent job in the pay-TV area.

:19:53.:19:58.

An inquiry by the regulator into whether BSkyB is fit to hold a

:19:58.:20:02.

broadcasting licence is continuing. The British government has been

:20:02.:20:05.

forced to climb down on plans to monitor the e-mails, phone calls,

:20:05.:20:08.

text messages and internet searches of everyone in the country. Civil

:20:08.:20:11.

liberties groups had expressed concern about the plan but the

:20:11.:20:13.

government, until a few hours ago, had insisted only "criminals,

:20:13.:20:15.

paedophiles and terrorists" had anything to fear, arguing that

:20:15.:20:20.

safeguards for privacy would be guaranteed. Rather than automatic

:20:20.:20:23.

implementation the plans will now be subject to parliamentary debate

:20:23.:20:30.

and scrutiny. Let's talk to Heather Brooke from

:20:30.:20:39.

the Times. Also the author of The Revolution Will Be Digitised. There

:20:39.:20:42.

has been this climbdown by the coalition government here but how

:20:42.:20:50.

draconian were the measures? They would have been something that we

:20:50.:20:54.

could pride ourselves, although that is not the right word, have

:20:54.:20:58.

been equivalent with China. That is the scale they wanted to implement.

:20:58.:21:03.

I don't know what their motivation was for putting this into the news

:21:03.:21:07.

agenda set -- suddenly but they were ill-thought through, they

:21:07.:21:16.

obviously had not consulted with the industry, who don't want this.

:21:16.:21:21.

It is building a vulnerability into the structure of Google and Twitter.

:21:21.:21:26.

That would have been passed down to the British taxpayer as well.

:21:26.:21:31.

that's right. In terms of digital mobile telephony at the moment,

:21:31.:21:37.

where do we stand, Britain, internationally in terms of that

:21:37.:21:43.

backdoor access to those calls, durations and times? I don't think

:21:43.:21:48.

people aware of how much we are already under surveillance. In the

:21:48.:21:52.

book I write about the roll-out of mass surveillance, mainly in the

:21:52.:21:57.

Nineties, when the FBI and the Department of Justice lobbied for

:21:58.:22:04.

worldwide standards in back doors. Explain what that is. A mechanism

:22:04.:22:09.

by which law enforcement can intercept all traffic in real time

:22:09.:22:13.

and, in a country like America or Britain, you would hope that they

:22:13.:22:17.

would have to get legal warrant in order to do that, but the problem

:22:17.:22:22.

is that all that is built in as standard by the telephone companies,

:22:22.:22:32.

and that's his then should doubt around the world. -- that is then.

:22:32.:22:36.

Is this similar to what we are perhaps seen in China, Bahrain,

:22:36.:22:45.

against pro-democracy protesters. am sure the FBI's plan was not to

:22:45.:22:49.

hand over a tool for autocratic governments to spy on pro-democracy

:22:49.:22:53.

campaigners but that is one of the consequences of the back door.

:22:53.:22:59.

Concrete -- countries like Iran, China, Turkey are looking quite

:22:59.:23:04.

seriously at having the same capability on the internet. What

:23:04.:23:07.

shocked people in Britain is that our own government was thinking of

:23:07.:23:12.

doing something similar. Here the government had argued that it was

:23:12.:23:16.

contact, not contexts. They would be able to see where a call had

:23:16.:23:21.

been made but not access it without a warrant. Are you saying that in

:23:21.:23:26.

the other countries any government agency can reel -- in real time can

:23:26.:23:33.

see what is being said? I think it is a misnomer to say that if you

:23:33.:23:38.

can't see the contract it is fine. The most important intelligence is

:23:38.:23:43.

signals intelligence. It is about your associates and that is a key

:23:43.:23:48.

point in a democracy, your freedom to associate with who you want.

:23:48.:23:51.

Just you are -- just because you are a friend of somebody who is a

:23:51.:23:57.

friend of somebody, does that implicate you? Even if our

:23:57.:24:02.

government said, it is fine, we are only going to be looked -- looking

:24:02.:24:07.

at the signals, just the signals intelligence is sensitive. How will

:24:07.:24:15.

egregious is the use in China as far as we understand it? Incredibly

:24:15.:24:20.

egregious. We all look at China as a terribly -- terrible example of

:24:20.:24:25.

where people have no freedom of association or communication. It is

:24:25.:24:29.

not to say that they can't communicate, because they use

:24:29.:24:34.

proxies and hidden services, but it is only the most technologically

:24:34.:24:37.

savvy people who can do that and the rest of the population are

:24:37.:24:42.

under the watchful eye of the state. Thank you very much the joining us

on the programme. -- for joining us. James Bond - ruthless, charming and

:24:50.:24:53.

always evading certain death. Now it's time for the 50-year-old film

films was suspended when film company MGM faced problems in

:24:58.:25:01.

recent years, but the debonair double-0 is back with a new film,

:25:01.:25:05.

due to be released later this year. The BBC has been given a first look

:25:05.:25:07.

at the movie in action, as our entertainment correspondent Lizo

:25:07.:25:12.

Mzimba reports. Bond is undoubtedly a British icon

:25:13.:25:19.

and so it seems appropriate that for this movie much of the filming

:25:19.:25:24.

has been taken place above and below the streets of the capital. -

:25:38.:25:43.

to be very different from the last two movies but still a great Bond

movie. Starting with Dr No in 1962, it is the longest-running film

franchise in history. Number mack has been played by six different

:26:05.:26:06.

actors. -- 007 has been. The series has taken over �3 billion at the

:26:06.:26:10.

box office. One factor in its continuing success has been its

:26:10.:26:15.

ability to constantly reinvent itself to reflect the changing

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

times. That continues with this movie. Making Bond less superhero

:26:25.:26:31.

and more super spot -- super spy. know there will be somebody after

me and somebody after them so it is just being part of the process. I

will keep going until they tell me to stop. His first two outings as

:26:42.:26:45.

Bond have gone down well with audiences and critics. He hopes

:26:45.:26:50.

this will continue when the film is released later in the year.

:26:50.:26:54.

It is out in October of this year. For new details have emerged about

:26:54.:26:58.

the man who allegedly shot seven people dead and injured three more

:26:58.:27:07.

at the University in California. He is said to be upset about being

:27:07.:27:17.
:27:17.:27:18.

teased. There is still snow in our forecast.

We had a lot in the early hours of Tuesday in our -- in Scotland.

Through the night time period, through Trans Pennine routes and

then through much of Wales it is higher routes that will be -- see

more of the slow. Low levels, perhaps not accumulating too much.

Through the course of when state the weather front stalls. The north

:27:48.:27:53.

becomes sunnier but windy. The weather front will keep it cold,

England is set fair for much of the day. South-west England clouding

over through the day with some outbreaks of light rain. Windy for

Wales, cloudy and wet, further snow across the hills. Across Snowdonia

we could see 20 or 30 centimetres. For Northern Ireland and much of

Scotland, sunny spells around on Wednesday. Light winds emerging on
