This is BBC World News Today. The United States says Nigeria's

:00:00.:00:11.

president has welcomed an offer of expert American help to recover the

:00:12.:00:17.

hundreds of abducted schoolgirls. Eight more girls have been taken

:00:18.:00:19.

from a village in north-east Nigeria. The US has offered to send

:00:20.:00:30.

a team to help find them. A day before South Africa's election

:00:31.:00:33.

what are the challenges for the biggest party, the ANC?

:00:34.:00:37.

I have been talking to the elders of Nelson Mandela's children who

:00:38.:00:42.

defends the ANC against its critics who say it's not done enough to help

:00:43.:00:49.

the poor. Also coming up: It may look

:00:50.:00:52.

harmonious, but we give you the inside story on the epic power

:00:53.:00:57.

struggles under way in China. The veneer of harmony is paper-thin. The

:00:58.:01:05.

fight to take down him is bitter. And, what if humans were just a few

:01:06.:01:09.

inches tall? An American teenager uses some photography tricks to

:01:10.:01:12.

bring to life a world of tiny people.

:01:13.:01:23.

Hello and welcome. The Islamist militants, Boko Haram,

:01:24.:01:29.

have kidnapped eight more girls from a village in northern Nigeria - an

:01:30.:01:32.

attack carried out as international outrage grows about the group's

:01:33.:01:35.

declared plans to sell several hundred schoolgirls into slavery.

:01:36.:01:41.

This latest kidnapping happened on Sunday night in the village of

:01:42.:01:47.

Warabe, in Borno state. The girls taken were between 12 and

:01:48.:01:50.

15-years-old. It follows the abduction of more than 200

:01:51.:01:53.

schoolgirls by Boko Haram three weeks ago. They were taken from a

:01:54.:01:57.

school in the town of Chibok - that's an hour's flight away from

:01:58.:02:01.

the capital Abuja. It's thought they are being held by members of the

:02:02.:02:04.

Islamist group in their stronghold in the Sambisa Forest. But Boko

:02:05.:02:08.

Haram has threatened to sell them into slavery and, as you can see,

:02:09.:02:12.

their stronghold in the forest is close to the border with Chad and

:02:13.:02:16.

Cameroon - showing how easy it could be for the girls to disappear. We'll

:02:17.:02:22.

talk to the UN about this, but first the BBC's Tomi Oladipo has the

:02:23.:02:28.

latest on our developing story. They promised to keep protesting

:02:29.:02:32.

until the schoolgirls were found. And true to their word, today saw

:02:33.:02:36.

another march on the streets of Abuja. They are demanding the

:02:37.:02:41.

government do more to find the girls who were snatched from their school

:02:42.:02:46.

in north-east Nigeria three weeks' ago. Now, fresh reports have emerged

:02:47.:02:51.

of another abduction in Borno state. Police and residents of Warabe

:02:52.:02:56.

village say gunmen arrived in trucks taking with them eight girls.

:02:57.:03:01.

Nigerians are growing impatient with their government and its failure to

:03:02.:03:04.

prevent such attacks despite having a state of emergency in the

:03:05.:03:08.

north-east. The Finance Minister has defended the government's efforts.

:03:09.:03:12.

For the past three weeks, the government has been following up

:03:13.:03:16.

every lead using aerial surveys, using all the things at its

:03:17.:03:20.

disposal. The problem was that we never communicated it well. Despite

:03:21.:03:24.

the government's insistence that it is winning the war against the

:03:25.:03:28.

Islamists, this year has been the bloodiest since the conflict began.

:03:29.:03:32.

The horror stories are becoming all too common and people are wondering

:03:33.:03:36.

how much longer this will go on for. Those concerns are being reflected

:03:37.:03:40.

in the international community. The UK has joined the US to offer

:03:41.:03:44.

support. We are offering practical help. What has happened here that

:03:45.:03:48.

the actions of Boko Haram in using girls as the spoils of war, the

:03:49.:03:53.

spoils of terrorism, is disgusting, it is immoral, it should show

:03:54.:03:58.

everybody across the world that they should not give any support to such

:03:59.:04:06.

a vile organisation. The whereabouts of the schoolgirls remain unknown.

:04:07.:04:11.

Their captors say they will sell them, an agonising thought the

:04:12.:04:16.

girls' grieving families would never have imagined.

:04:17.:04:24.

You heard William Hague there. The United States and the United Kingdom

:04:25.:04:27.

have both offered the Nigerian government help in finding the

:04:28.:04:30.

abducted schoolgirls - and in the last hour the US State Department

:04:31.:04:33.

has confirmed that Nigeria's President, Goodluck Jonathan, has

:04:34.:04:39.

welcomed the assistance. President Jonathan welcomes Secretary Kerry's

:04:40.:04:42.

offer to send a team to Nigeria, to discuss how the United States can

:04:43.:04:47.

best support Nigeria in its response. In addition, our embassy

:04:48.:04:53.

is prepared to form a co-ordination cell, and this is what they

:04:54.:04:57.

discussed on the call, that could provide expertise on intelligence,

:04:58.:05:01.

investigations and hostage negotiations, help facilitate

:05:02.:05:06.

information sharing. It would include US military personnel, law

:05:07.:05:13.

enforcement officials as well as officials with expertise in other

:05:14.:05:18.

areas that may be helpful to the Nigerian government in its response.

:05:19.:05:23.

The President has directed that we and the Secretary and the State

:05:24.:05:26.

Department do everything we can to help the Nigerian government find

:05:27.:05:31.

and free these young women. The President Secretary Kerry had their

:05:32.:05:34.

regular meeting this afternoon and this will certainly be a prominent

:05:35.:05:39.

topic of discussion. Joining me via webcam from Geneva is

:05:40.:05:49.

Rupert Colville. Welcome to World News Today. Your reaction to what we

:05:50.:05:53.

have been hearing from the US State Department, they are eager to get

:05:54.:05:56.

this team sent to Nigeria as soon as possible? Well, it is good that

:05:57.:06:02.

people are rallying around Nigeria now. The true horror of the

:06:03.:06:07.

activities of Boko Haram are spreading wide across the world and

:06:08.:06:12.

people realise something needs to be done. And these poor girls, you

:06:13.:06:16.

know, more than 200, no-one knows the exact figure, but several weeks

:06:17.:06:23.

now they have been - since they have been abducted. You have been warning

:06:24.:06:27.

that the leaders of Boko Haram should be aware that they are

:06:28.:06:31.

committing crimes against humanity, they may have to pay for this in the

:06:32.:06:37.

years to come? Yes, absolutely. In international law, there is a pro hi

:06:38.:06:45.

bigs -- prohibition against sexual slavery. Under certain

:06:46.:06:54.

circumstances, these abductions could constitute crimes against

:06:55.:06:58.

humanity. We have been talking a lot about what the Nigerian government

:06:59.:07:02.

is doing, or failing to do in trying to get these girls back. What about

:07:03.:07:05.

the role of the local governments, the state governments? Well, I think

:07:06.:07:12.

that's been an issue because the - Nigeria is a federal state. The

:07:13.:07:16.

local states have a lot of power and a lot of operational abilities. And

:07:17.:07:21.

I think it is extremely important that the state authorities and the

:07:22.:07:25.

federal authorities co-operate fully and quite often, they are not from

:07:26.:07:29.

the same political party. So, that has been a concern raised in the

:07:30.:07:35.

case of Borno state. Has the UN been reaching out to neighbouring

:07:36.:07:40.

countries, to Chad and Cameroon, now we are hearing these rumours that

:07:41.:07:44.

some of the girls may have been taken over those borders? Yes, that

:07:45.:07:52.

was an issue the High Commissioner of the human rights - that was an

:07:53.:07:56.

issue she raised with the Nigerian government. There needed to be a

:07:57.:08:00.

regional approach to dealing with Boko Haram because they do seem to

:08:01.:08:05.

be flowing back and forwards across borders, getting safe havens in

:08:06.:08:10.

neighbouring countries and coming back. So, some kind of regional

:08:11.:08:15.

co-operation is essential and we offered to do what we could to help

:08:16.:08:19.

neighbouring countries come on board with Nigeria to combat this.

:08:20.:08:24.

Briefly, that is quite a challenge, isn't it? These borders are very

:08:25.:08:34.

porous? Yes, one would hope that everyone will be revolted by what's

:08:35.:08:38.

happened to these girls and even corrupt people should be a bit moved

:08:39.:08:42.

to do something about this. Boko Haram are really going totally

:08:43.:08:53.

beyond the pail. So, it is really something that anyone should be able

:08:54.:08:57.

to rally behind. Thank you very much.

:08:58.:09:01.

South Africans are getting ready to vote in the country's general

:09:02.:09:04.

elections on Wednesday, the fifth poll since the end of apartheid. An

:09:05.:09:07.

easy win is expected for the ruling African National Congress Party -

:09:08.:09:11.

but there's been a lot of criticism over its aggressive campaigning,

:09:12.:09:13.

with allegations that the ANC blocked opposition ads on South

:09:14.:09:20.

Africa's public broadcaster. It's 20 years since South Africa's first

:09:21.:09:23.

democratic election which saw the ANC, led by Nelson Mandela, came to

:09:24.:09:29.

power. Though the party is expected to win again, a series of political

:09:30.:09:32.

scandals, and a stagnating economy, means it may emerge weaker. At the

:09:33.:09:38.

moment, the ANC holds 264 of 400 seats in the National Assembly. The

:09:39.:09:42.

main opposition party, the Democratic Alliance, has 67. The

:09:43.:09:46.

third largest party is the Congress of the People. But there's a new

:09:47.:09:52.

player that's widely expected to make significant gains - the

:09:53.:09:54.

Economic Freedom Fighters led by Julius Malema following his

:09:55.:09:59.

expulsion from the ANC. Let's talk to World News Today's Zeinab Badawi,

:10:00.:10:02.

who's following the campaign in Johannesburg. Zeinab, over to you.

:10:03.:10:09.

Thank you very much. Well, it is four hours now until any kind of

:10:10.:10:15.

political campaigning has to come to an end because at 7.00am South

:10:16.:10:19.

Africans will go to the polls and polling stations are open until

:10:20.:10:24.

9.00pm. This is the most hotly contested election in the

:10:25.:10:28.

post-apartheid era. There was a record number of parties standing,

:10:29.:10:33.

not just the ones you outlined there. There are 20 parties in this

:10:34.:10:40.

election. That reflects the discontent that there is in the

:10:41.:10:44.

country with the ruling ANC, which is accused of failing to deliver for

:10:45.:10:50.

all its citizens after 20 years in power, people point to the lack of

:10:51.:10:55.

electricity, of course not enough jobs, unofficial rate is something

:10:56.:11:01.

like 25% unemployed. So, all in all, lots of criticisms being levelled at

:11:02.:11:09.

the ANC. Has it lost its mojo? I have been talking to the eldest of

:11:10.:11:15.

Nelson Mandela's children at her home. I put it to her, I said to

:11:16.:11:23.

her, "Does the ANC deserve to win?" It deserves to win the election. It

:11:24.:11:28.

is a party that fought hard for us to be where we are today. And I

:11:29.:11:35.

think with all the problems that we have, within the ANC, I still think

:11:36.:11:39.

it deserves to be the party that wins tomorrow. With all the problems

:11:40.:11:43.

within the ANC - what are you talking about? Well, it's an open

:11:44.:11:53.

secret that there are frictions, conflicts within the party. You

:11:54.:11:57.

know, in the last elections, there was a breakaway group... You are

:11:58.:12:05.

talking about a group of ANC members who are unhappy about the removal of

:12:06.:12:14.

Mbeki? Yes. It is public knowledge that a senior member... The former

:12:15.:12:20.

Defence Minister of the ANC? Yes. Made a call that people should not

:12:21.:12:24.

vote, or spoil their votes or whatever, which I think is

:12:25.:12:28.

irresponsible. I think however you want to look at it, it is a party

:12:29.:12:34.

that we still look very fondly. It has a history. Our parents paid with

:12:35.:12:40.

their lives. We as their children suffered a lot. I think that it is a

:12:41.:12:47.

party that has done quite a lot despite the challenges. We still

:12:48.:12:51.

have a lot of challenges. No-one will dispute this is the party of

:12:52.:12:55.

liberation. There are those who will say that is not enough anymore. 20

:12:56.:13:04.

years since your father became t first democratically elected

:13:05.:13:06.

President of South Africa. You need to reinvent yourselves? The ANC has

:13:07.:13:10.

tried. If you look at 20 years, where we are today, I think South

:13:11.:13:18.

Africa has a good story to tell. The way that we live today is better

:13:19.:13:24.

than what we lived - how we lived before. There is a lot of things

:13:25.:13:28.

that have changed. There's a lot of access for black people today. Yes,

:13:29.:13:34.

you can talk about the violence that we experience in South Africa, which

:13:35.:13:40.

is what people mostly called, but violence exists in many parts of the

:13:41.:13:43.

world. Progress has been made, nobody will dispute that. The

:13:44.:13:46.

government says three million new housing units have been built since

:13:47.:13:51.

they came to power, 300 new schools have replaced the mud ones. I put it

:13:52.:13:56.

to you that still, for example, the University of Cape Town last year in

:13:57.:14:00.

March, published a study which said that 12 million South Africans go to

:14:01.:14:05.

bed hungry every night, many of them children. Is that progress? Well, we

:14:06.:14:14.

can say... That is not saying much. That is progress from a very low

:14:15.:14:20.

base? But freedom in this country, we come from a very low base. We

:14:21.:14:27.

quickly forget where we come from in South Africa. Many more people did

:14:28.:14:32.

not have jobs. They couldn't live in the suburbs. They couldn't live in

:14:33.:14:39.

towns, just because... It doesn't mean they were out of poverty, they

:14:40.:14:43.

were still in poverty. We come from a violent... You still don't have

:14:44.:14:48.

jobs, official figures say 25% of the population is without work. Yes,

:14:49.:14:58.

but you can't expect miracles overnight.

:14:59.:15:07.

So, you get an idea there, although she is not an official spokesperson

:15:08.:15:13.

for the ANC, that that is how the ANC does defend its position and say

:15:14.:15:19.

you Captain expect us to fix huge problems -- say you can't expect us

:15:20.:15:25.

to fix huge problems overnight. In these elections, you need to look at

:15:26.:15:31.

turnout. In the 2009 elections, it was 77% - relatively high. Are

:15:32.:15:35.

people going to heed that vote "no" campaign and not vote as a way of

:15:36.:15:39.

registering their protest? And, secondly, 66% is what the ANC got in

:15:40.:15:43.

the last elections and in all the elections since the end of apartheid

:15:44.:15:48.

it has polled more than 60%. If it goes below that, if it wins, people

:15:49.:15:53.

will start asking questions all over the country within the ANC, even

:15:54.:15:57.

right at the top of their leadership, are we doing it right?

:15:58.:16:02.

What are we going to do now that basically the electorate may have

:16:03.:16:06.

given us a bloody nose if we go below that 60%? We will be watching

:16:07.:16:10.

and waiting to see what does happen in these elections, so that is it

:16:11.:16:14.

for the moment from me. Back to you in the studio. Thank you very much.

:16:15.:16:21.

Now a look at some of the day's other news: The

:16:22.:16:23.

former Egyptian army chief, Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, has said the

:16:24.:16:26.

Muslim Brotherhood will no longer exist if he becomes president. Mr

:16:27.:16:30.

Sisi said that when he ousted the former Islamist president Mohamed

:16:31.:16:33.

Morsi in July last year, he had no political aspirations, but he had

:16:34.:16:36.

changed his mind because of threats from both inside and outside Egypt.

:16:37.:16:42.

The world's largest drinks-maker, Coca-Cola, says it will remove a

:16:43.:16:45.

controversial ingredient from some of its products by the end of this

:16:46.:16:49.

year. The move follows an American teenager's success in getting more

:16:50.:16:52.

than 200,000 signatures for an online petition, questioning the use

:16:53.:16:55.

of the chemical BVO - or Brominated Vegetable Oil - in the sports drink

:16:56.:17:04.

Powerade and some types of Fanta. Coca-Cola says all its ingredients

:17:05.:17:08.

meet regulatory requirements. A German collector who was found to

:17:09.:17:12.

have a vast collection of artworks including some looted by the Nazis

:17:13.:17:16.

has died at his home in Germany. Cornelius Gurlitt, who was 81, had

:17:17.:17:19.

just been released from hospital after major heart surgery. It

:17:20.:17:23.

emerged last year that he'd been keeping more than 1,000 paintings

:17:24.:17:26.

including works by Monet, Matisse and Chagall, at his flat in an

:17:27.:17:40.

ordinary apartment block in Munich. The BBC Trust Chairman is to stand

:17:41.:17:43.

down with immediate effect on health grounds. That is following major

:17:44.:17:46.

heart surgery. The former Conservative Minister and the last

:17:47.:17:50.

governor of Hong Kong before its handover has been at the head of the

:17:51.:18:11.

BBC Trust since 2011. Berlin's push for new peace talks

:18:12.:18:14.

was rebuffed by Russia, which said they would be pointless without the

:18:15.:18:25.

involvement of Ukraine's rebels. Speaking at a press conference with

:18:26.:18:28.

Japan's Prime Minister, NATO's Secretary General said the crisis

:18:29.:18:31.

was the biggest the organisation had faced in decades. Today we are

:18:32.:18:35.

facing the gravest crisis to European security since the end of

:18:36.:18:43.

the Cold War. But this is not just about Ukraine, this crisis has

:18:44.:18:47.

serious implications for the security and stability of the area

:18:48.:18:53.

as a whole. But while attention is focussed on

:18:54.:18:56.

Eastern Ukraine, there is unease in Kiev too, as the capital prepares

:18:57.:18:59.

for Victory Day - a holiday marking the defeat of Nazi Germany by the

:19:00.:19:03.

Soviet Union. The BBC's David Stern reports.

:19:04.:19:08.

This is a highway on the outskirts of Kiev leading to the east of

:19:09.:19:12.

Ukraine, where there is heavy fighting going on. As you can see,

:19:13.:19:16.

this is a checkpoint. There are nine of these all around the city and

:19:17.:19:19.

there are other checkpoints further on down the road. This one is being

:19:20.:19:25.

manned jointly by two groups. The police, as you can see, but there

:19:26.:19:31.

are also members of the self-defence units, the regular people who have

:19:32.:19:34.

been camping out in the centre of Kiev and they have formed their own

:19:35.:19:38.

protection groups and their own civilian police units. Now, they are

:19:39.:19:44.

looking at cars, that I are stopping not every car, mostly trucks and

:19:45.:19:49.

buses and larger vehicles and they are looking for weapons, explosives.

:19:50.:19:54.

They say they are worried about people trying to bring things in for

:19:55.:19:59.

provocations. Especially on the eve of the May 9th Victory Day. There

:20:00.:20:06.

will be big crowds. This is a major holiday. They are very worried, they

:20:07.:20:10.

say, about provocations and possible clashes on that day.

:20:11.:20:15.

In China, an epic power struggle is under way, but you wouldn't know it

:20:16.:20:20.

from the official media. The former security chief has disappeared, a

:20:21.:20:22.

victim of the Orwellian security apparatus he once controlled. He was

:20:23.:20:27.

once on the standing committee of the Communist Party politburo, but

:20:28.:20:30.

his name has not been mentioned in the media for seven months. Now,

:20:31.:20:34.

China is waiting to see whether the president has the strength to

:20:35.:20:37.

confine such a powerful enemy behind bars. Our China Editor Carrie Gracie

:20:38.:20:43.

reports on the fight and its implications.

:20:44.:20:49.

This family home is giving no secrets away to scandal hunters.

:20:50.:20:54.

Zhou Yongkang is still missing. Presumed victim of the Orwellian

:20:55.:20:57.

security system that he once controlled. National media no longer

:20:58.:21:03.

speak his name. But here in this village, he is still the favourite

:21:04.:21:07.

son. And no-one believes the story is about corruption.

:21:08.:21:12.

Their house is no better than the one next door, he says, there is no

:21:13.:21:16.

sign of luxury. These neighbours say it is all

:21:17.:21:19.

politics, a power struggle at the top of the Communist Party. This

:21:20.:21:24.

group point me towards the family graveyard and press me for the

:21:25.:21:28.

latest rumour on where Zhou Yongkang is being held.

:21:29.:21:33.

When he last came here a year ago, all the local dignitaries turned out

to pay tribute. But not anymore. Chinese politics is a cruel game and

even a couple of months ago when his brother died - you can see his name

:21:45.:21:48.

here in black - there were no key members of the family even at the

:21:49.:21:52.

funeral because they were all in detention. So, is it time to write

Zhou Yongkang's political obituary? The farmer's son whose life journey

got comfortable as he accelerated through party ranks, joining the

limousine class, running an oil company, then a province of 80

:22:04.:22:06.

million and crowning his career with control of China's internal

:22:07.:22:14.

security. The veneer of harmony in the

:22:15.:22:19.

official press here is paper-thin. The fight to take down Zhou Yongkang

:22:20.:22:23.

is bitter. China's a political cycle which offers a new President no

:22:24.:22:26.

electoral mandate, so he uses corruption charges against an enemy

:22:27.:22:29.

to get his own people and policies into place.

:22:30.:22:36.

Strategists play this ancient game to improve their real-life tactics.

:22:37.:22:41.

The President has seized 300 of his enemy's pieces but the former

security chief knows all his secrets and has tacit support from others

who have made it rich in high office.

TRANSLATION: They are all watching his next move. If he can bring Zhou

:22:57.:23:01.

down, they will have to obey him. If he is bluffing, they won't need to

:23:02.:23:09.

fear him. He will be a paper tiger. Fighting tigers - the President's

own description of his anti-corruption campaign, to show

the other tigers who's boss, to bend the government to his will on policy

:23:15.:23:18.

and to reassure the public that he is punishing the party's "fat cats."

:23:19.:23:24.

But cornered predators are dangerous so China waits uneasy for proof that

this President has tamed his tiger. A home-schooled American teenager

:23:42.:23:44.

who likes to imagine the world from the angle of what he calls "little

:23:45.:23:47.

folk" has found his photo-editing project becoming an online

:23:48.:23:49.

sensation. Zev Hoover conceptualises, photographs and

:23:50.:23:51.

edits his visions before posting them online - and the 15-year-old

:23:52.:23:54.

who admits he's sometimes lonely has received a massive response.

:23:55.:24:00.

My name is Zev Hoover. I take pictures of miniature people and

:24:01.:24:03.

they have sort of exploded online recently. I wanted to improve my

:24:04.:24:13.

Photoshop skills so I started the "little folk" project which started

:24:14.:24:17.

as a way of getting better at Photoshop. After about a year of

:24:18.:24:21.

doing little folk pictures, they got picked up by some design blogs and

:24:22.:24:30.

then it sort of exploded. Nature is very important in my work and

:24:31.:24:34.

definitely inspires a lot of it and I think a lot of that comes from

:24:35.:24:36.

living where we do. My sister is very often the

:24:37.:24:51.

character in the pictures. Yeah, that's fine. Let me see what

:24:52.:24:57.

sort of background you'll be on. I find my inspiration a lot of the

:24:58.:25:02.

time just in the scenes that I photograph, so just thinking about

:25:03.:25:05.

how fun it would be, how different that would be to experience if you

:25:06.:25:08.

were, like, one-and-a-half or two inches tall because the world would

:25:09.:25:11.

be really an entirely different place.

:25:12.:25:21.

I certainly put a lot of myself into the characters because they almost

:25:22.:25:27.

always are doing some hobby I'm interested in, or somehow related to

:25:28.:25:30.

something I happen to be doing at the time. One of my most popular

:25:31.:25:39.

photographs is of me piloting a paper airplane.

:25:40.:25:47.

I think it's a popular picture because people like imagining. I

:25:48.:25:54.

make them for my own pleasure because I love making them but, at

:25:55.:25:58.

the same time, the comments and feedback certainly really encourages

:25:59.:26:01.

you to keep going because just knowing that people are passionate

:26:02.:26:04.

about it is incredible that someone else would care about my little

:26:05.:26:05.

project. But the internet has made the world

:26:06.:26:19.

a lot smaller, so anyone who is interested in this type of thing can

:26:20.:26:23.

now go on and just find my work that easily, whereas without the

:26:24.:26:26.

internet, it would be almost impossible, I would just be a kid

:26:27.:26:29.

taking pictures somewhere and no-one would know about it, maybe forever

:26:30.:26:31.

Don't Good evening. Most places managed to

:26:32.:26:57.

miss the showers today, but some northern parts of the UK will have

:26:58.:27:01.

fairly wet day tomorrow. In general terms, it will be another day of

:27:02.:27:05.

bright spells and showers. Some showers keep going overnight. In

:27:06.:27:10.

fact, some longer spells of rain is tied in with these weather fronts as

:27:11.:27:15.

they run across from west to east. Showers possible almost anywhere, a

:27:16.:27:19.

few clearer spells in between. As we go on through Wednesday, the rain

:27:20.:27:21.

setting in for
