This is BBC World News Today with me Daniela Ritorto.

:00:00.:00:11.

Rules on liquids, shoe searches and baggage scans will still apply.

:00:12.:00:16.

But in airports across the globe, security is being beefed up.

:00:17.:00:20.

The measures will be in force at airports with direct flights to the

:00:21.:00:24.

US after a possible new terrorist threat was identified. We'll look at

:00:25.:00:28.

how it could affect airline travel around the world A second day of

:00:29.:00:32.

anger on the streets of East Jerusalem over the murder of

:00:33.:00:34.

Palestinian teenager Mohammed Abu Khdair.

:00:35.:00:37.

Israeli authorities are yet to release his body for burial.

:00:38.:00:43.

Also coming up... Life inside an extremist enclave. Harrowing stories

:00:44.:00:48.

from Iraqis who've escaped areas seized by Isis militants.

:00:49.:00:52.

Brazil gets ready to tackle Colombia is the quarter finals of the

:00:53.:01:04.

football World Cup. Al be reporting from Rio, we're that is so much

:01:05.:01:09.

pressure on the Brazilian side, they have been consulting as

:01:10.:01:13.

psychologist. -- I will be reporting from Rio.

:01:14.:01:23.

Hello and welcome. Airports around the world are on terror alert after

:01:24.:01:27.

warnings of a credible threat. In Uganda, security forces say they've

:01:28.:01:30.

received a specific threat of a planned attack on its main

:01:31.:01:33.

international terminal. Tougher security measures are on their way

:01:34.:01:36.

for passengers taking direct flights to the United States. Reports from

:01:37.:01:39.

America suggest groups with links to al-Qaeda in Syria and Yemen are

:01:40.:01:43.

working on a new type of bomb which may not be picked up during the

:01:44.:01:47.

usual screening process. Our security correspondent, Frank

:01:48.:01:48.

Gardner, has the details. Heathrow today. And no outward signs

:01:49.:02:01.

of anything unusual. But in the last 24 hours, the government has

:02:02.:02:03.

announced that new unspecified security measures are being put in

:02:04.:02:06.

place for transatlantic flights to America. It is in direct response to

:02:07.:02:10.

the belief that Al-Qaeda operatives in Syria are planning to smuggle

:02:11.:02:15.

sophisticated bombs onto planes. We take these decisions looking at the

:02:16.:02:19.

evidence in front of us and working with our partners. This is something

:02:20.:02:22.

we have discussed with the Americans. And we have put in place

:02:23.:02:26.

some extra precautions and extra checks. The safety of the travelling

:02:27.:02:33.

public must come first. This is where the government believes the

:02:34.:02:36.

threat originated. With Al-Qaeda in Yemen. A group which has developed a

:02:37.:02:42.

unique expertise in hard to detect explosives. Today's heightened

:02:43.:02:46.

airport security is because that lethal expertise is thought to have

:02:47.:02:54.

proliferated across borders. So the skills, developed in Yemen, are

:02:55.:02:57.

believed to have been passed on by Al-Qaeda to their affiliates in

:02:58.:03:00.

other parts of the Middle East. Specifically Syria, where their

:03:01.:03:03.

trainers are feared to have instructed a whole new generation of

:03:04.:03:07.

bombers. These include European jihadists with European passports.

:03:08.:03:11.

And this is almost the only known picture of their mentor. Ibrahim

:03:12.:03:18.

al-Asiri, who is still at large. In 2009, he sent the so-called

:03:19.:03:21.

underpants bomber on a plane to Detroit with a hidden device that he

:03:22.:03:25.

tried and failed to ignite as it came into land. The next year, he

:03:26.:03:28.

built bombs inside printer ink toner cartridges. They got all the way

:03:29.:03:32.

from Yemen to Britain's East Midlands Airport before they were

:03:33.:03:35.

found. Today, this explosives expert showed us the effect of even just a

:03:36.:03:40.

small drop of liquid explosive. LOUD BANG. When you come to detect

:03:41.:03:45.

explosives, one of the traditional ways of doing it is by sniffing. So

:03:46.:03:49.

you use an electronic sniffer, or you could use a dog. A low vapour

:03:50.:03:53.

explosive, or low vapour pressure explosive, is one that doesn't

:03:54.:03:56.

really give off any vapours. So there is nothing to sniff. And that

:03:57.:04:00.

is what makes them ideal for smuggling through security and makes

:04:01.:04:03.

them hard to detect. With the fighting in Syria pulling in

:04:04.:04:06.

thousands of jihadists from Europe, intelligence analysts worry that

:04:07.:04:09.

some of them are being quietly trained to go back home and plan

:04:10.:04:13.

attacks. Both US and British airports already have extensive

:04:14.:04:15.

security measures, including explosives detectors and body

:04:16.:04:21.

scanners. It is not clear what more precautions can be taken. But

:04:22.:04:25.

passengers are being warned to expect occasional delays for the

:04:26.:04:29.

sake of a safe flight. Frank Gardner, BBC News.

:04:30.:04:37.

Now for an update at what is happening in some US airports. David

:04:38.:04:41.

Willis is at Dulles International Airport in Washington. Any visible

:04:42.:04:48.

changes at this stage? Pretty much business as usual at the moment.

:04:49.:04:54.

This is one of the largest airports in the United States. The first

:04:55.:04:58.

flight to arrive from London Heathrow actually got in 20 minutes

:04:59.:05:03.

early, officials from the Department of Homeland Security Chief that is

:05:04.:05:07.

because these new security measures will not come into place for a

:05:08.:05:12.

couple of days. Then of course it is possible that passengers will face

:05:13.:05:16.

increased searches and scrutiny. But not until then. And there is very

:05:17.:05:23.

little likelihood of delays up until that point. Nonetheless,

:05:24.:05:25.

intelligence officials here believe there is a credible threat from

:05:26.:05:32.

Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula devising some new form of bomb which

:05:33.:05:38.

could a vague metal detectors. -- could evade. I expect the 4th of

:05:39.:05:45.

July weekend tomorrow, busier time than most, what a passenger seeing?

:05:46.:05:52.

Our passengers nervous? Some passengers are nervous. I got a -- I

:05:53.:06:02.

spoke to some who came from Heathrow, who said they were nervous

:06:03.:06:06.

given the current atmosphere. And when you start seeing armed guards

:06:07.:06:10.

and so on, at international airports, it is bound to make you

:06:11.:06:16.

uneasy. But we are a couple of days away from that. And it may well be

:06:17.:06:21.

that that will not be part of this new landscape at all, that the

:06:22.:06:26.

checks will be more subtle, officials here making the point that

:06:27.:06:30.

a lot will go on behind the scenes, if you like, rather than involving

:06:31.:06:35.

just straightforward searching. We will leave it for there. David,

:06:36.:06:39.

thank you. We can go to our Washington studio. Professor Peter

:06:40.:06:45.

Neumann is from the International Centre for the study of

:06:46.:06:47.

radicalisation and political violence at Kings College. Thank you

:06:48.:06:55.

for joining us. Thank you. I wondered if this there -- if there

:06:56.:07:02.

is a sense of shock, jihadists is fighting themselves over the last

:07:03.:07:06.

couple of years and the fact that Western targets do remain crying,

:07:07.:07:12.

perhaps surprise for us? Yes, to some extent and outwardly, but at

:07:13.:07:18.

the same time, it is precisely because they are fighting each other

:07:19.:07:22.

that some of the groups that have been shown, or been known to be less

:07:23.:07:28.

active over the past year or so, they are trying to prove themselves

:07:29.:07:32.

by attacking a high-profile western targets, and in particular Al-Qaeda,

:07:33.:07:39.

on the defensive for the past few months, because Isis has been so

:07:40.:07:46.

successful, so they may well argue that only by attacking Western

:07:47.:07:49.

targets that they can still claim leadership of the movement. Almost

:07:50.:07:53.

like a competition between rival jihadists factions. A frightening

:07:54.:07:59.

competition. In terms of what we're talking about, these new devices.

:08:00.:08:07.

Are security authorities aware of what is being planned question might

:08:08.:08:11.

we are hearing about a undetectable or non-traceable bombs perhaps.

:08:12.:08:15.

Certainly true that Al-Qaeda in Yemen has been particularly

:08:16.:08:20.

innovative, some of the devices mentioned over the past few years,

:08:21.:08:24.

such as hidden in and aware, concealed inside the Bull's bodies,

:08:25.:08:32.

-- hidden in underwear toner cartridges. I think they keep

:08:33.:08:41.

working one bombs and explosives devices inside people's bodies,

:08:42.:08:44.

which makes them almost impossible to detect, and that is the biggest

:08:45.:08:49.

threat. Just on that point, I wondered if the focus should shift

:08:50.:08:55.

not just to scanning technology, but making sure these people never get

:08:56.:08:59.

anywhere near an airport in the first place, maybe directing Syrian

:09:00.:09:06.

and Yemeni intelligence? That is what security forces have been

:09:07.:09:11.

trying to do. There was a second bomb in underwear which was detected

:09:12.:09:20.

because Western and Arab security forces had informers within the

:09:21.:09:23.

organisation. And that is as important as security at the

:09:24.:09:28.

airport. If you only detect the bomb at the airport, that is already too

:09:29.:09:34.

late. Ideally, you want to detect and interrupted the plot long before

:09:35.:09:37.

it even gets to the point where it gets to the airport. Thank you,

:09:38.:09:45.

Professor. The funeral of the Palestinian

:09:46.:09:48.

teenager, who was found dead just outside of Jerusalem on Wednesday,

:09:49.:09:51.

has been delayed while an autopsy is carried out. It's thought Muhammad

:09:52.:09:56.

Abu Khdair was killed in revenge for the murder of three Israeli

:09:57.:10:02.

teenagers. At least ten Palestinians are reported to have been injured

:10:03.:10:07.

after air strikes on the Gaza Strip. The violence has worsened over the

:10:08.:10:10.

past couple of hours. Normally bustling neighbourhoods have been

:10:11.:10:15.

brought to a standstill. One Palestinian man hurled stones at

:10:16.:10:19.

security forces who responded with tear gas. Elsewhere, at least ten

:10:20.:10:23.

Palestinians are reported to have been injured during air strikes on

:10:24.:10:26.

the Gaza strip, and Israel says the strikes were in response to a wave

:10:27.:10:30.

of rocket attacks from Gaza. Yolande Knell reports from Jerusalem.

:10:31.:10:34.

The smouldering aftermath of overnight clashes. Palestinians in

:10:35.:10:39.

East Jerusalem vented their anger over the death of a local boy.

:10:40.:10:43.

Stones were their ammunition against Israeli police. The body of Mohammed

:10:44.:10:49.

Abu Khdair, who was 17, was found in a forest yesterday. Just hours after

:10:50.:10:54.

he was seen being bundled into a van. Israeli police say they are

:10:55.:11:01.

still investigating. But his family believe he was abducted and killed

:11:02.:11:05.

in revenge for the recent murder of three Israeli teenagers. The funeral

:11:06.:11:08.

cannot take place until an autopsy is done. TRANSLATION: We sent an

:11:09.:11:14.

Arab Muslim doctor to check on the body. That was our main priority.

:11:15.:11:20.

That it is an Arab doctor who observes the autopsy. And now we are

:11:21.:11:25.

waiting. But God willing, we will not have to wait until the middle of

:11:26.:11:30.

the night to receive the body. TRANSLATION: Of course, I blame the

:11:31.:11:34.

Israeli government. And this is an Israeli area. There is supposed to

:11:35.:11:39.

be safety and security in this neighbourhood. This is not a

:11:40.:11:41.

Palestinian area. Israel has the strongest and biggest security force

:11:42.:11:45.

in the world. But only for the Jewish people. But when an Arab is

:11:46.:11:50.

killed, there is no security. Now, mourners wait for the funeral

:11:51.:11:58.

outside the family home. Everywhere you look here, you have

:11:59.:12:01.

plenty of evidence of the overnight violence. But it reached much

:12:02.:12:09.

further than East Jerusalem. There were also clashes in Palestinian

:12:10.:12:12.

cities across the West Bank, where the Israeli army has been doing

:12:13.:12:15.

raids. And in the Gaza Strip. Explosions lit up the night sky in

:12:16.:12:19.

Gaza. This was Israel's response to the rockets fired by militants. In

:12:20.:12:23.

southern Israel, homes were hit. No one here was injured.

:12:24.:12:28.

TRANSLATION: It is impossible to start the day without fear. And the

:12:29.:12:32.

children, even though I tell them not to be afraid, when it reaches

:12:33.:12:36.

you, it changes everything. The whole situation. The cycle of

:12:37.:12:40.

violence is a familiar pattern in this decades-old conflict. But the

:12:41.:12:43.

latest developments are a worrying sign of a potential escalation.

:12:44.:12:53.

Yolande Knell, BBC News, Jerusalem. In Iraq, the BBC has heard harrowing

:12:54.:12:56.

testimony from residents of large scale killings in areas under

:12:57.:13:00.

control of Isis forces. The Sunni Islamic extremists appear to be

:13:01.:13:02.

strengthening their grip in many parts of the country. The areas

:13:03.:13:11.

under Isis control shown here include Tikrit, Mosul and the town

:13:12.:13:14.

of Tal Afar. That is on the border with Syria. Around 50,000 people

:13:15.:13:18.

people have now fled those areas for neighbouring Sinjar. Many have

:13:19.:13:20.

disturbing stories of their treatment at the hands of the

:13:21.:13:26.

militants. Every corner of the town of Sinjar

:13:27.:13:32.

is taken. Here even building sites have become home to Iraqis fleeing

:13:33.:13:40.

Isis. In the city's schools, the only private moments are found

:13:41.:13:43.

inside shelters made from desks and chairs. There are six families to a

:13:44.:13:50.

classroom. These Shia walked 20 miles to escape Isis. This man told

:13:51.:13:59.

me they are targeting Sunnis, Shias, even Kurds. They are targeting

:14:00.:14:07.

everyone. They have no humanity. They had to abandon homes in Mosul

:14:08.:14:12.

and Tal Afar. But even the children are trying to make the best of it.

:14:13.:14:23.

But they live in fear. This woman said, I have five martyrs in my

:14:24.:14:28.

family, all killed by Isis. My daughter is a widow. I have only two

:14:29.:14:34.

children left. Near the border with Syria, aid agencies have struggled

:14:35.:14:37.

to get here. Isis have planted roadside bombs. Just up from Sinjar,

:14:38.:14:41.

the front line is on the Tyne's doorstep. -- the town's. Tens of

:14:42.:14:46.

thousands of Shia Muslims, Christians, Kurds and others escaped

:14:47.:14:50.

along this road from Tal Afar, with Isis to the east and the West, here

:14:51.:15:02.

in Sinjar, the found sanctuary. And they say they need it, because Isis

:15:03.:15:06.

is engaged in a campaign to systematically clear the towns and

:15:07.:15:09.

villages left behind. This man, a Kurd, was kidnapped by Isis and held

:15:10.:15:14.

for 16 days. He was let go, but others were not. The jihadists, he

:15:15.:15:17.

told me, were selective in their punishment. Be treated Sunnis better

:15:18.:15:28.

than others. They released them straightaway. Even paid their taxi

:15:29.:15:32.

fare home. But for Shia, if they cannot be exchanged for prisoners,

:15:33.:15:35.

they will simply cut off their heads. We have been told that, where

:15:36.:15:40.

Isis take control, they have been methodical in hunting down

:15:41.:15:43.

non-Sunnis and those opposed to them. TRANSLATION: Isis is

:15:44.:15:48.

collecting information about people and compiling a database in order to

:15:49.:15:51.

identify those who work for the government or security forces. If

:15:52.:15:56.

they do not repent and pledge their allegiance to the caliphate, they

:15:57.:15:59.

will be killed. A lot of these people have disappeared in Mosul.

:16:00.:16:03.

Isis have already altered Iraq's borders. Through fear and force,

:16:04.:16:08.

they are transforming the ethnic and religious landscape around Sinjar.

:16:09.:16:13.

Leaving many here wondering if they will ever be able to return home.

:16:14.:16:23.

Let's have a look at some other stories making the news.

:16:24.:16:28.

The leaders of South Korea and China have agreed to oppose North Korea's

:16:29.:16:31.

President Park Guhn Hay and visiting Chinese President Xi

:16:32.:16:34.

They say there should be no nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula.

:16:35.:16:38.

They also agreed to strengthen commercial and diplomatic ties

:16:39.:16:40.

Aid agencies in South Sudan are warning that four

:16:41.:16:46.

million people are likely to face critical food shortages next month.

:16:47.:16:49.

Ethnic violence has forced many people from their homes

:16:50.:16:51.

since December, preventing them from planting or harvesting crops.

:16:52.:16:53.

Thousands of people have died in the fighting, which began

:16:54.:16:55.

when the president accused his deputy of attempting a coup.

:16:56.:17:05.

Two people have been killed and 14 others injured during a second night

:17:06.:17:08.

of sectarian violence in Myanmar's second largest city, Mandalay.

:17:09.:17:10.

Police were out in force after the deaths of two men, one Muslim, the

:17:11.:17:14.

other Buddhist. The violence began after rumours that a Buddhist woman

:17:15.:17:22.

A Dutch court has ruled that a traditional figure,

:17:23.:17:31.

known as Black Pete, is a negative stereotype of black people.

:17:32.:17:34.

Zvarte Piet, as he's known in the Netherlands,

:17:35.:17:36.

is the sidekick to the Dutch equivalent of Father Christmas.

:17:37.:17:38.

But the figure has attracted growing controversy in recent years.

:17:39.:17:40.

He's usually portrayed in a winter festival by white people in black

:17:41.:17:43.

Now an Amsterdam court has ruled that the city council must

:17:44.:17:47.

re-examine its decision to grant a permit to the festival.

:17:48.:18:03.

Now to Brazil, where the World Cup hosts are gearing up for

:18:04.:18:06.

their quarter-final play-off against the Colombians tomorrow night.

:18:07.:18:08.

I don't know about you but I have an having withdrawal symptoms. It is

:18:09.:18:27.

not long to go. The build-up here is huge and the tension is mounting.

:18:28.:18:32.

There is a lot of focus on the Brazilian side. Are they cracking

:18:33.:18:37.

under the pressure? We have seen tears on the pitch and a lot of her

:18:38.:18:41.

supporters are worried that their team cannot cope with the strain.

:18:42.:18:46.

People are saying that their midfield is not strong enough.

:18:47.:18:54.

Neymar seems to be the most relaxed player in the side and he says he is

:18:55.:18:58.

treating the match against Colombia like a kick around in his backyard.

:18:59.:19:03.

They have brought in a sports psychologist. Colombia do not feel

:19:04.:19:08.

the pressure in the same weight because they are the outsiders and

:19:09.:19:11.

they are looking forward to another World Cup performance. They have one

:19:12.:19:16.

for on the trot and they are looking forward to another victory. Let's

:19:17.:19:22.

take stock because we have had a couple of rest days. Resilience are

:19:23.:19:29.

worried about the informants of 13. -- Brazilians are worried about the

:19:30.:19:36.

performance of the team. There have been some great goals. Rodriguez has

:19:37.:19:43.

had the standard goal of the season. We have seen protests. We have seen

:19:44.:19:49.

anger and resentment at the cost of the championship. That does not sit

:19:50.:19:56.

berry well with some of the huge social poverty issues that you see

:19:57.:20:04.

here. -- sit very well. It is almost as if the people of the sale are

:20:05.:20:08.

putting their anger to one side. They are watching and loving the

:20:09.:20:13.

book. Maybe there will be more protests later on but for now, it is

:20:14.:20:19.

all about the sport. -- loving but that well. There is another match

:20:20.:20:24.

happening tomorrow. What has happened with the German team?

:20:25.:20:29.

Reports from the German camp that some of their players have been ill

:20:30.:20:33.

with flu-like symptoms. We do not know exactly what is how men. I do

:20:34.:20:38.

not think it is anything that serious. It will be another

:20:39.:20:42.

thrilling encounter. We will wait and see. They have World Cup

:20:43.:20:48.

pedigree. They have great tournament experience and it will be a great

:20:49.:20:55.

game in Rio de Janeiro. I am looking forward to it. You are a lucky man.

:20:56.:20:57.

Thank you. Don't forget you can keep

BBC with your World Cup thoughts. Here's one from BBC Sport asking

:21:11.:21:16.

if Brazil lack the flair Join the conversation using

:21:17.:21:18.

the #bbc world cup. A sports doctor has told the trial

:21:19.:21:46.

of Oscar Pistorius that he is traumatised by the death of his

:21:47.:21:51.

girlfriend. The prosecution argues that Oscar Pistorius killed Reeva

:21:52.:21:56.

Steenkamp deliberately. We can get an update from the courthouse in

:21:57.:22:02.

Pretoria. This was staged 36 of the Oscar Pistorius murder trial. The

from the report, is still mourning the loss of his girlfriend. We heard

from another defence witness. He is a sports doctor and has been working

with Oscar Pistorius. He was quoting from many studies making the point

:22:54.:22:58.

that disabled people suffer from more attacks and criminal activity

:22:59.:23:05.

than able-bodied people. He quoted a study that after the Paralympic

The roads have been resurfaced, the bunting is out and the nearly 200

laurels, he knows how far Britain has come. We have dominated the

Olympic Games, we have won the Tour de France twice and we have some

of this is the result of millions of pounds of investment which has

Bradley Wiggins has caused tensions. The head of Team Sky admits it was

one of the hardest calls he has ever had to make. It was difficult, I am

of view, it was straightforward, but from a personal point of view, it

never been more popular or successful. For the sake of the

sport's hard earned reputation, everyone will be hoping that the end

That's all from the programme but the weather is next.

Thanks for joining us and from me and the rest of the team, goodbye.

Good evening. Across the south-east we had temperatures around 28
