This is BBC World News Today with me, Ben Bland.

The French President promises to destroy those responsible for

:00:10.:00:11.

the Paris attacks, as memorials are held across the city two weeks on.

:00:12.:00:25.

The names of the 130 victims were read out - survivors and their

:00:26.:00:29.

families hear a pledge that France will not give in to fear or hate.

:00:30.:00:44.

To you all, I solemnly promise you that France will put everything it

:00:45.:00:50.

has at it's disposal to destroy the army of fanatics who have

:00:51.:00:52.

After one of its warplanes was brought down, Russia suspends

:00:53.:00:56.

As a result, Russians in this Turkish resort are

:00:57.:00:59.

We'll find out what effect the exodus is having on tourism.

:01:00.:01:04.

TRANSLATION: I starved. Bon appetit.

:01:05.:01:11.

And a flavour of the year in film - we get the views of one critic

:01:12.:01:15.

A memorial service has been held in Paris to remember those killed

:01:16.:01:30.

A thousand people gathered - among them survivors

:01:31.:01:33.

The names of the 130 people who died were read out.

:01:34.:01:37.

The French President, Francois Hollande, said

:01:38.:01:38.

his country would do all it could to destroy - what he called - the "army

:01:39.:01:42.

In its monument to wartime heroes, France today honoured

:01:43.:02:02.

They stood to gather, president, Prime Minister,

:02:03.:02:04.

the angry and the grieving, as the names of those they lost were

:02:05.:02:07.

Listening to the roll call of victims were

:02:08.:02:18.

Brought from hospital, injured but determined to show their defiance.

:02:19.:02:25.

I promise France will do everything to destroy this army of fanatics,

:02:26.:02:33.

we will protect our children and we will stay true to ourselves.

:02:34.:02:40.

His words echoed by France's national anthem.

:02:41.:02:46.

A reminder that this was an attack not just on individuals,

:02:47.:02:54.

Among the names read out in Paris was Hugo.

:02:55.:02:58.

At Montpellier University, he was remembered not just

:02:59.:03:03.

as a victim but as a student with a passion for punk rock.

:03:04.:03:06.

Hugo had been staying at his flat in Paris that weekend to catch

:03:07.:03:14.

In the park where they used to go, Stephan told me his son had

:03:15.:03:24.

struggled with his studies, his love life, his parents' separation and

:03:25.:03:27.

I was still his father but we became friends because I was an old guy,

:03:28.:03:37.

he was young, so I explained to him about Led Zeppelin, The Clash.

:03:38.:03:47.

Last month, Hugo had returned from holiday in Japan with a new

:03:48.:03:59.

He said his problems were behind him and was ready to move

:04:00.:04:03.

He showed me his tattoo and it was his best gift to me, because he...

:04:04.:04:12.

"It was, OK, Dad, now I'm free, and I show you that I can go

:04:13.:04:18.

At Montpellier Cathedral, they gathered to receive Hugo home.

:04:19.:04:33.

His friends, family and members of his band, and the shock showing

:04:34.:04:36.

Across France, parents are starting to bury

:04:37.:04:38.

Amid the national commemorations, each death is being remembered,

:04:39.:04:43.

His father said he was, "My boy, my baby, my friend, my confidant."

:04:44.:04:55.

23 years after Hugo was born, a congregation, a town,

Moving on to the fight against Islamic State militants.

:04:59.:05:10.

France has said for the first time that forces loyal

:05:11.:05:12.

to the Syrian Government could be part of the campaign on the ground.

:05:13.:05:15.

The French Foreign Minister, Laurent Fabius, was asked about it during

:05:16.:05:18.

TRANSLATION: There are two sets of measures, firstly to carry out air

:05:19.:05:33.

strikes and Amy must put troops on the ground.

:05:34.:05:37.

The green groups cannot be ours because it would be

:05:38.:05:39.

counter-productive. They must be from the Syrian Army and the Sunni

:05:40.:05:44.

Arab sources. -- ground troops. And why not sources from the Syrian

:05:45.:05:53.

regime? In the last hour, President Hollande

:05:54.:05:57.

has called on the British parliamentarians to join the fight

:05:58.:06:02.

against IS. He said he hopes MPs will meet the request of President

bat-mac Prime Minister Cameron. -- Prime Minister Cameron.

:06:12.:06:27.

Mr Hollande has already agreed with Russian's President Putin that

:06:28.:06:29.

the two countries should co-ordinate their military actions

:06:30.:06:31.

But Russia remains angry over Turkey shooting

:06:32.:06:34.

Mr Putin is refusing to meet Turkey's president

:06:35.:06:37.

Russia has now suspended visa-free travel with Turkey.

:06:38.:06:40.

Meanwhile, the Turkish President Erdogan said he didn't want to

:06:41.:06:42.

damage relations with Russia but he accused Moscow of "playing

:06:43.:06:45.

TRANSLATION: It is playing with fire to predict the Serbian regime.

:06:46.:06:49.

The whole world admits that Turkey is correct in this incident. --

sarin. The day that this incident happened I requested a meeting with

:06:53.:06:54.

President Putin. I wanted to hold a telephone conversation with him but

:06:55.:06:57.

he has not returned my calls it. There is a climate change conference

:06:58.:07:01.

in Paris and I believe he will be there. We can meet the and discuss

:07:02.:07:08.

these matters. -- Syrian. As tensions between Russia

:07:09.:07:10.

and Turkey continue to rise, The Russian parliament has

suggested that the country stops Russian officials say they have

found some harmful chemicals in textile and fruits imported

:07:15.:07:18.

from Ankara. This crisis may seriously hit

:07:19.:07:19.

the economy in the southern coastal resort of Antalya in Turkey,

:07:20.:07:22.

where many businesses cater From there,

:07:23.:07:24.

Olga Ivshina has this report. If you walk around the streets here

:07:25.:07:30.

you may think that Russia is a language of 30. Four years, this

:07:31.:07:33.

resort has been the most popular destination for Russian tourists.

:07:34.:07:39.

There are leading international buyers of property in Antalya but

:07:40.:07:45.

Russians are now quickly selling. TRANSLATION: The Russians in Antalya

:07:46.:07:49.

are starting to panic. The Facebook group is looking to sell the

:07:50.:07:53.

property. This is a good time to buy flats. I hope that things get back

:07:54.:07:56.

to normal soon and we will not have to change the way that we live.

:07:57.:08:05.

For more than 70,000 Russian speakers who now live in Antalya,

:08:06.:08:12.

the stakes are extremely high. Stormy. This is probably the best

:08:13.:08:16.

word to describe the current relations between Ankara and Moscow

:08:17.:08:20.

after Turkey downed a Russian military jet. As political

:08:21.:08:24.

conditions get worse, more and more businessmen in Antalya are worried

:08:25.:08:29.

about their future. This holiday season is over. So, many hotels

:08:30.:08:36.

close for renovation. However, nobody knows how many of them will

:08:37.:08:46.

open next spring. This man runs a hotel with his wife. They made zero

:08:47.:08:53.

profit this year. TRANSLATION: Over the last few years we use the

:08:54.:08:56.

customers who would stay two times each year. But because of the week

:08:57.:09:00.

rouble they have only come once and some have not come at all. White mac

with their families and he is really disappointed with the officials.

:09:15.:09:19.

Suggesting Turkey has become dangerous for Russian citizens.

:09:20.:09:25.

If something bad happens, my talk is friends and I are to patrol the

:09:26.:09:29.

streets in order to protect any Russians. There is absolutely

:09:30.:09:35.

nothing to be afraid of. While politicians practice using

:09:36.:09:38.

strong language, Russians and talks in Antalya try to find ways to live

:09:39.:09:42.

their lives side-by-side as they used to.

:09:43.:09:51.

Reports from northern Nigeria see a suicide bomber has blown himself up

:09:52.:09:57.

in the middle of the procession causing casualties. At least 21

:09:58.:10:01.

people are believed to have been killed.

:10:02.:10:05.

Pope Francis has arrived in Uganda for the second leg

:10:06.:10:07.

There was a warm welcome for the pontiff at Entebbe

:10:08.:10:15.

He also held a huge youth rally at Kasarani Stadium.

:10:16.:10:18.

In Uganda he spoke to government officials and local church leaders

:10:19.:10:21.

It promises, it hopes, it struggles. Its achievements. The world looks to

:10:22.:10:42.

Africa as the continent of hope. Catherine Byaruhanga is in Kampala

:10:43.:10:47.

for us. Give us a flavour of the atmosphere

:10:48.:10:59.

and welcome the Pope received? It has been a very loud welcome with

:11:00.:11:03.

lots of music and dancing. Where I am at the moment that a Catholic

:11:04.:11:09.

shrine. He was here one hour ago. There were crowds of thousands of

:11:10.:11:13.

people, singers, traditional dancers, some have composed songs

:11:14.:11:18.

for the Pope. Just as he was driving into Kampala, thousands of people

:11:19.:11:24.

lined the streets. His choice of car in Uganda is actually a small black

:11:25.:11:32.

Kia and Ugandans have been sharing images of this on social media. I

:11:33.:11:36.

understand there are two big issues that Ugandans have been telling you

:11:37.:11:39.

that they would like the Pope to address, tell us more about this,

:11:40.:11:45.

please. Yes, the first one is corruption. As we have seen, the

:11:46.:11:50.

Pope taught in Kenya and that is a big issue. Some of the people I have

:11:51.:11:55.

spoke to this morning have said that they would like the Pope to give a

:11:56.:12:00.

message to government and business leaders to do more to take care of

:12:01.:12:04.

the country's natural wealth. He spoke a bit about that in his speech

:12:05.:12:10.

at State house. The other issue is the elections. We are in a campaign

:12:11.:12:16.

season. Voting will take place in February. Some of those we spoke to

:12:17.:12:19.

live like the pontiff to really sort of mediate with different political

:12:20.:12:23.

leaders to make sure that the process is free and fair and that it

:12:24.:12:28.

is peaceful. OK, thank you very much for that

:12:29.:12:30.

update. The International Criminal Court in

:12:31.:12:35.

The Hague is one of the few global She's Fatou Bensouda,

:12:36.:12:38.

a lawyer from the Gambia who's now The ICC's critics say it is slow

:12:39.:12:41.

and expensive. There's been controversy because

:12:42.:12:46.

so far all its cases have come As part of our 100 Women series,

:12:47.:12:49.

Fatou Bensouda's been speaking to Zeinab Badawi about justice, gender,

:12:50.:12:52.

race and the challenges of leading an institution that is

:12:53.:12:54.

rarely out of the news. There are a few cases which were

:12:55.:13:11.

very, very difficult and marketing me a lot. I have done the rape of a

:13:12.:13:16.

school girl by the teacher in the school toilet and from the very

:13:17.:13:22.

beginning, I just felt that this should not be happening. We must do

:13:23.:13:27.

everything that we can to should not be happening. We must do

:13:28.:13:33.

that this kind of crime is held to account. -- it marks to me a lot.

:13:34.:13:40.

When you were in Gambia, did you think you would end up the head of

:13:41.:13:42.

the criminal court? think you would end up the head of

:13:43.:13:48.

time but what was clear to think you would end up the head of

:13:49.:13:54.

time was that I wanted to contribute to justice and social welfare. I

:13:55.:14:00.

wanted to serve. I wanted something to do with women, how could I help

:14:01.:14:05.

and contribute? So, I think this is an opportune moment and really, a

:14:06.:14:08.

privilege, to be in this position and to be able to serve as I thought

:14:09.:14:14.

about it when I was growing up. With respect to my work, I hardly

:14:15.:14:18.

think about my gender, I must tell you. But I believe also, as a woman,

:14:19.:14:26.

and putting emphasis on certain crimes like sexual and gender based

:14:27.:14:32.

crimes, I believe my gender has helped me to ensure that I draw a

:14:33.:14:40.

line under this and a visit to a strategic level, one of the

:14:41.:14:44.

strategic goals of my office and I put an emphasis on that. I am sure,

:14:45.:14:49.

perhaps if I was a man, or if a man was sitting here, they would do the

:14:50.:14:55.

same thing, but really, as the woman, I believe it is important

:14:56.:14:58.

that I highlight those kind of crimes, and also crimes against

:14:59.:15:02.

children, that is something that is a priority for my office. I am also

:15:03.:15:07.

trying to put out a policy paper on children. As you know, I have

:15:08.:15:11.

already done that on sexual and gender based crime. These type of

:15:12.:15:16.

crimes are important for me and I believe my agenda has a lot to do

:15:17.:15:19.

with that. Fatou Bensouda speaking to Zeinab

It's been a big year at the cinema and as the year comes to a close and

:15:57.:16:00.

the awards season gets closer, we start to look at which ones stood

:16:01.:16:03.

Well, Sight Sound magazine have released their list

:16:04.:16:07.

And I'm delighted to welcome Nick James who is the editor

:16:08.:16:11.

Swank these are the reviews of critics?

:16:12.:16:14.

That is correct. The 1 that has topped the poll,

:16:15.:16:17.

Assassin, I think we can look at the trailer for that.

:16:18.:16:55.

Very heavy going that one. It looks like an action movie, but it isn't,

:16:56.:17:03.

it is actually a very beautiful film. It has a simple story, a woman

:17:04.:17:11.

assassin is said to assassinate someone she is in love with and that

:17:12.:17:15.

is the basic frame of the story but it takes place in these times of

:17:16.:17:21.

courting and these gorgeous costumes, it is a film that is

:17:22.:17:24.

literally like a moving painting rather than an action server. It

:17:25.:17:29.

looks like an action thriller, but it has other delights. -- action

:17:30.:17:35.

thriller. What about arthouse films, they are

:17:36.:17:40.

notorious for hard to please, the critics.

:17:41.:17:43.

Yes, the director from Taiwan has made a lot of beautiful forms over

:17:44.:17:51.

the last few years. This is a kind of pinnacle of achievement for him

:17:52.:17:55.

in terms of, you know, how beautiful the film is. It is an aesthetic

:17:56.:18:01.

experience primarily. Do you think that this film will

:18:02.:18:04.

reach more people because it is top of this poll? I would hope so. I do

:18:05.:18:09.

not think it will do as well at the box office as the second or third

:18:10.:18:15.

film. There is that wonderful lesbian drama that everyone should

:18:16.:18:19.

see this weekend. And we also have at number three Mad Max. A number of

:18:20.:18:25.

your viewers will have looked at. Before we look at that, you

:18:26.:18:30.

referenced the lesbian Fulmar, Carol. Let us have a look at that.

:18:31.:18:38.

-- lesbian film. I start. Bon appetit. What do you do

:18:39.:18:47.

on Sundays. Nothing in particular, what do you do? Nothing, really.

:18:48.:18:55.

Maybe you would like to come and visit me sometime. You are welcome

:18:56.:19:00.

to. There is some pretty country around where I live. Would you like

:19:01.:19:05.

to come and visit me this Sunday? Yes. What a strange girl you are.

:19:06.:19:16.

Why? Flunk out of space.

:19:17.:19:28.

Watching that, so close to the clip that be so at the top of the poll.

:19:29.:19:33.

You could not have two more different films at the top of this?

:19:34.:19:39.

Our poll reflects a great variety of modern cinema, there is a greater

:19:40.:19:43.

span of things on offer. If you are interested in of... The blockbusters

:19:44.:19:50.

that you see in the multiplexes come from a narrow band, but films like

:19:51.:19:53.

those two are, you know, treasures to be sought out by more people, I

:19:54.:19:58.

would hope, than sometimes do. Whether any particular films in the

:19:59.:20:01.

top ten or the top 20 that surprised you?

:20:02.:20:06.

I was surprised that Mad Max, given our bunch of critics, was at number

:20:07.:20:11.

three. Even though I love it myself, it is a tremendous film. There is

:20:12.:20:18.

quite a solemn and sad documentary about a famous film-maker in the

:20:19.:20:23.

middle of the poll. She sadly died recently and I think that may have

:20:24.:20:27.

affected some of the votes that that got. I was pleased to see any in the

:20:28.:20:34.

top ten, that is my favourite film of the year. It is in at number

:20:35.:20:41.

nine. -- Amy. When you disappointed with any of

:20:42.:20:46.

the films in the poll? Sometimes you get huge numbers of

:20:47.:20:49.

funds that might have been done well. The film Macbeth, that did not

:20:50.:20:55.

do well in our poll. It might have done better.

:20:56.:20:58.

Nick James, thank you very much. A unmanned NASA space rocket which

:20:59.:21:04.

broke up in mid air above Cape Canaveral last year appears to have

:21:05.:21:07.

reached an unlikely new destination. What looks like a large fragment

on this remote island. The breaking news now. There has

:22:39.:22:55.

been a shooting in the US state of Colorado. Colorado Springs police

have said they are responding to reports of an active shooter at

situation is not yet stabilised. We will keep you across that and bring

you more as it comes in. Four rare white lion cubs have

:23:20.:23:28.

been unveiled at a zoo in Toronto. The males were born to their mother

white lions in the world. While they're not technically

:23:35.:23:38.

albinos, their blonde-white fur is caused by a recessive trait in

:23:39.:23:40.

the same gene that causes albinism. Before we go,

:23:41.:23:44.

let's return to our top story from France, where President Hollande

:23:45.:23:48.

has led a memorial service to remember the 130 people killed in

:23:49.:23:50.

gun and bomb attacks two weeks ago. It is a day of national mourning

:23:51.:23:54.

and everyone in the country has been encouraged to join in, by

:23:55.:23:57.

displaying France's national flag. TRANSLATION: Today we can allow

:23:58.:24:50.

ourselves to get out the flags. We are not the only once, I think

:24:51.:24:54.

many have been buying the French flag.

:24:55.:24:57.

I think everyone looked into their heart and found something stronger

:24:58.:25:02.

and harder. It is a very public display of togetherness. I have been

:25:03.:25:06.

speaking about it with everyone I care for, my friends and family. I

:25:07.:25:10.

really think something has changed and this is the proof that the

:25:11.:25:14.

French people are more united now than ever before.

:25:15.:25:57.

Just some of the images they are from France on a national day of
