This is BBC World News Today with me Karin Giannone.

:00:00.:00:08.

Our top story: US presidential hopeful Donald Trump says

:00:09.:00:15.

... CORRECTION: let us listen into the vigil in Liverpool. You make me

:00:16.:00:35.

proud to be from this fair city. Thank you. Justice for the 96.

:00:36.:00:41.

Next, please welcome to the stage, Danny Gordon.

:00:42.:01:03.

In September 2012, my sister stood on this platform and stated that her

:01:04.:01:12.

son, Kevin, was killed accidentally. He was unlawfully killed. Now, at

:01:13.:01:22.

last, the truth is out. Truth. Such a small word with so much meaning,

:01:23.:01:29.

especially to the families, survivors, supporters from this

:01:30.:01:33.

great city. Emotions are confused at this time. Relieved to be as

:01:34.:01:38.

inquests are finally finished but sad it does not bring back our loved

:01:39.:01:43.

ones. It has been 27 years since that terrible day. We must not

:01:44.:01:48.

forget, in that time, many other family members who have passed away,

:01:49.:01:54.

not able to be seen -- to be here to see the results of their fight for

:01:55.:02:01.

justice. John Glover, Terry Birkin...

:02:02.:02:09.

Maureen Church... APPLAUSE

:02:10.:02:24.

George Wright... And, of course, my sister, Anne Williams. LOUD APPLAUSE

:02:25.:02:39.

she fought so hard with courage and tenacity. We strongly believe that

:02:40.:02:48.

without those survivors and supporters organising themselves and

:02:49.:02:51.

helping the injured on that day, many more could have been taken from

:02:52.:02:57.

us. Quite rightly, the Home Secretary recognised their efforts

:02:58.:03:02.

in the House of Commons today. We owe a big thank you to those

:03:03.:03:06.

survivors and supporters, especially those witnesses who had the courage

:03:07.:03:10.

to give evidence in court on our behalf. They relived that terrible

:03:11.:03:12.

day. I would like to also thank our legal

:03:13.:03:31.

team who have supported my sister for many years and dealt with us

:03:32.:03:37.

with such care, compassion, professionalism and above and beyond

:03:38.:03:41.

the requirements of a legal team. APPLAUSE

:03:42.:03:50.

We hope by the findings of these inquests that lessons have been

:03:51.:03:58.

learned by all the authorities involved in the disaster. Many clubs

:03:59.:04:03.

and authorities have made safety and health and welfare improvements

:04:04.:04:07.

since 1989, we would like to remind them that without the fans' support,

:04:08.:04:10.

football clubs would not survive. As a result of these inquests, the

:04:11.:04:27.

reputation of the police and some public authorities has been damaged,

:04:28.:04:34.

especially when in 2012, after the report, the South Yorks police and

:04:35.:04:43.

the Ambulance Service locally publicly apologised and accepted

:04:44.:04:46.

full responsibility for the deaths of the 96. But when it came to 2014

:04:47.:04:52.

and in front of a jury, they fought tooth and nail to blame the fans

:04:53.:04:58.

again. That further prolonged the agonies of the families and

:04:59.:05:02.

survivors. The police and these authorities need to seriously

:05:03.:05:06.

consider how they are going to repair their reputations to gain

:05:07.:05:09.

public confidence and trust and realise how important that is.

:05:10.:05:16.

Without that trust and cooperation they will not be able to function.

:05:17.:05:22.

We would also like -- we would also hope that because of these inquests,

:05:23.:05:28.

the welfare of not only football fashion -- fans but fans who gather

:05:29.:05:33.

in large numbers for any event will be taken very seriously to prevent a

:05:34.:05:37.

disaster like this ever happening again. If lives are saved by the

:05:38.:05:45.

lessons learned from these inquests we could take small comfort in

:05:46.:05:49.

knowing that our loved ones were not taken in vain.

:05:50.:05:52.

APPLAUSE God bless them. May they all rest in

:05:53.:06:08.

peace now. They will never walk alone.

:06:09.:06:13.

Some closing remarks from the Mayor of Liverpool.

:06:14.:06:32.

Apologies for their helicopter flying above. That was journalists

:06:33.:06:41.

from the Sun newspaper and that's the closest we will let them to our

:06:42.:06:47.

city. It will probably take two or three hours for me to go through

:06:48.:06:52.

well be thank yous. I want to thank our city team and staff at the

:06:53.:06:56.

council who have helped organise today and events over the last few

:06:57.:07:00.

days. APPLAUSE

:07:01.:07:10.

Many community groups have helped the campaign and the families over

:07:11.:07:13.

the 27 years. It probably would take me two hours

:07:14.:07:19.

to thank them. But you know who you are. Equally, there are a lot of

:07:20.:07:23.

people who were against this city and the families. We know who you

:07:24.:07:32.

are. 27 years ago, this city was flooded in tears. Tears of grief.

:07:33.:07:41.

Today, our city is flooded with a different type of tears. Tears of

:07:42.:07:48.

relief. Tears of relief that 96 innocent people can now rest in

:07:49.:07:53.

peace and tears for 96 families who can now be at peace.

:07:54.:07:56.

APPLAUSE .

:07:57.:08:07.

The 96 and their families will never, ever be forgotten in this

:08:08.:08:14.

city. The eternal flame will always burn bright in our hearts and in

:08:15.:08:20.

dark city's memories. I want to thank you all personally for being

:08:21.:08:25.

here tonight and showing the two -- true city of the great city of

:08:26.:08:26.

Liverpool. I would also ask you to bear with me

:08:27.:08:46.

because the next part will be difficult. It is difficult for me as

:08:47.:08:54.

I ask you to join in a song with words I am not too familiar with.

:08:55.:09:00.

But I am sure you will help me along. So, please, read, blues, our

:09:01.:09:10.

city... Let us join together with a magnificent sense of sound and sing

:09:11.:09:15.

city... Let us join together with a together, You'll Never Walk Alone.

:09:16.:09:19.

Truth and justice. # walk on through the wind # walk on

:09:20.:10:28.

through the rain # though your dreams be

:10:29.:10:36.

# With hope in your heart # And you'll never walk alone

:10:37.:11:06.

# Walk on, walk on # With hope in your heart

:11:07.:11:40.

# And you'll never walk alone # You'll never walk alone

:11:41.:11:59.

The crowd at joining in there with the anthem of Liverpool football

:12:00.:12:15.

club as thousands join the build -- vigil for those who died in 1989.

:12:16.:12:29.

The jury determined that they were unlawfully killed.

:12:30.:12:35.

The Republican frontrunner in the race for the White House,

:12:36.:12:37.

Donald Trump, has set out his foreign policy priorities

:12:38.:12:39.

a day after sweeping to victory in five US primaries.

:12:40.:12:42.

In a major speech in Washington, he called the foreign policy

:12:43.:12:44.

of President Obama's administration "a complete and total disaster".

:12:45.:12:46.

He vowed to seek better relations with Russia and China.

:12:47.:12:49.

He promised to make US allies bear more of the financial burden

:12:50.:12:52.

for their defence and pursue an "America First approach":.

:12:53.:13:00.

My foreign policy will always put the interests of the American people

:13:01.:13:07.

and American security above all else. It has to be first. Asked to

:13:08.:13:14.

be. That will be the foundation of every single decision that I will

:13:15.:13:16.

make. He now describes -- describes

:13:17.:13:26.

himself as the Republican nominee. We are not bound to be adversarial,

:13:27.:13:32.

Russia and China. We should seek common ground. Russia has also seen

:13:33.:13:40.

the horror of Islamic terrorism. I believe an easing of tensions and

:13:41.:13:44.

improved relations with Russia from a position of strength only is

:13:45.:13:51.

possible. Absolutely possible. A strong and smart America is an

:13:52.:13:55.

America that will find a better friend in China. Better than we have

:13:56.:13:59.

right now. Look at what they are doing in the South China Sea. They

:14:00.:14:04.

are not supposed to be doing it. No respect for this country or

:14:05.:14:08.

president. We can both benefit all we can both go our separate ways.

:14:09.:14:15.

Let us cross to Washington now. Eric, welcome. First of all, I'll be

:14:16.:14:23.

definitely looking at the Republican candidate or is the game over? It

:14:24.:14:28.

looks that way. Donald Trump had an amazing night last night and he did

:14:29.:14:33.

even better than I think his campaign thought he would. This

:14:34.:14:38.

certainly puts him on track to be the actual nominee. But one thing

:14:39.:14:43.

stands in his way and that is Indiana next week. Ted Cruz needs to

:14:44.:14:48.

have a big nightmare if you want is to stop Donald Trump.

:14:49.:14:51.

The idea of a contested convention coming down the line, when does that

:14:52.:14:55.

go away? It will go away if and when Donald

:14:56.:15:01.

Trump can secure victory next week in Indiana. If you can win Indiana

:15:02.:15:07.

next week I think he will only need maybe 24 or 30% of the delegates and

:15:08.:15:13.

the rest of the remaining states in order to declare victory. It will be

:15:14.:15:20.

a comment -- incumbent on Ted Cruz to stop Donald Trump. We saw a

:15:21.:15:26.

recently formed alliance between him and the other Republican nominee but

:15:27.:15:30.

it hasn't been enough because combined, they are too weak to have

:15:31.:15:36.

been a factor in stopping Donald Trump. But Indiana is a state that

:15:37.:15:41.

is tailor-made to Ted Cruz and his evangelical supporters so he can

:15:42.:15:47.

muster a fight there. It all remains to be seen if he can actually win

:15:48.:15:52.

because, whilst there is very little polling data, what we do have shows

:15:53.:15:56.

that Donald Trump is winning as of now. Keep in mind that voters have

:15:57.:16:02.

already started voting in Indiana. Right now, it looks like 66,000

:16:03.:16:09.

votes have been cast in early voting so that could be the difference in

:16:10.:16:13.

this outcome next Tuesday. Turning to what we heard of his

:16:14.:16:18.

vision of America's foreign policy. He says we will finally have a toner

:16:19.:16:24.

in foreign policy based on America's interests and the interests of the

:16:25.:16:28.

allies but he will put America first. What did you think of that?

:16:29.:16:33.

It is a lot of what he has already been saying. He is trying to exude

:16:34.:16:37.

strength through foreign policy and I think some of what we see from him

:16:38.:16:42.

in terms of closing borders actually remains and we saw some of that in

:16:43.:16:49.

the speech. This was a speech to try to assuage the fears of some of the

:16:50.:16:54.

foreign policy allies but I am not sure he did that. However, I think

:16:55.:17:00.

there was a lot of red meat for his base and that is something he

:17:01.:17:02.

probably needs and something that will go a long way with the GOP and

:17:03.:17:10.

trying to unify the party. I must ask about what is going on inside

:17:11.:17:15.

the Republican party right now. If it is going to be inevitable, what

:17:16.:17:20.

state is it in and what do those who have opposed all along do now? Right

:17:21.:17:26.

now, Donald Trump has a long way to go in terms of unifying the party

:17:27.:17:31.

and trying to win the national presidency. Donald Trump doesn't

:17:32.:17:35.

have a national infrastructure. He has a very anaemic fundraising base

:17:36.:17:42.

so he is a hind Hillary Clinton in terms of being able to put together

:17:43.:17:50.

a multifaceted campaign and that will take a lot of effort and work.

:17:51.:17:56.

It remains to be seen if the GOP establishment will work with him to

:17:57.:17:59.

do that so he has a lot of ground to cover in our little time. Thank you

:18:00.:18:01.

very much. For full coverage of the speech,

Greece has handed over the Olympic flame to

:18:21.:18:21.

There are 100 days to go until Brazil welcomes more than 200

:18:22.:18:26.

countries to the first Olympics to be staged in South America.

:18:27.:18:28.

The torch will arrive in the Brazilian capital Brasilia

:18:29.:18:30.

next week, for the start of a 95-day, 20,000-kilometre

:18:31.:18:33.

The relay will take in 300 cities, and every state in Brazil before

:18:34.:18:39.

arriving at the home of the games Rio on August 4th.

:18:40.:18:45.

Live in Rio now, and the BBC's Julia Carneiro.

:18:46.:18:52.

Julia, four years ago in the UK, I can remember when the torch toured

:18:53.:19:01.

the country. Huge excitement here. What is it like there?

:19:02.:19:07.

It hasn't really started yet. Maybe with the torch coming to reopen and

:19:08.:19:12.

travelling across the country, at least organisers hope it will get

:19:13.:19:16.

people more involved and involving other parts of the country in the

:19:17.:19:21.

games and the build-up and building up the excitement. For now, people

:19:22.:19:26.

have their attention diverted to other problems Brazil faces. It is

:19:27.:19:33.

really a build-up of problems. We have the political crisis and

:19:34.:19:39.

impeachment being faced by the Prime Minister so we don't know who the

:19:40.:19:44.

president will be in August when the Olympics are happening. The economic

:19:45.:19:49.

crisis is impacting the games and the virus outbreak as well. There

:19:50.:19:55.

are mounting factors. Hopefully, the torch coming to reopen get people

:19:56.:20:00.

more in the mood. And what about the preparations for the games? We hear

:20:01.:20:04.

being diverted with the political chaos and the virus. What is it like

:20:05.:20:11.

as far as infrastructure is concerned?

:20:12.:20:14.

Yes, there are mixed feelings about that as well. Today there was a

:20:15.:20:18.

press conference in Rio with the mayor giving lots of reassurances

:20:19.:20:22.

that the Olympic Park where most of the venues are, online -- 98 sent

:20:23.:20:32.

ready. With the sports venues, things are going well. Some glitches

:20:33.:20:38.

here and there and some venues are facing delays, but there are

:20:39.:20:43.

specific cases. There are lots of significant delays when it comes to

:20:44.:20:47.

infrastructure in the city. Transport infrastructure and when it

:20:48.:20:50.

comes to the metro line that is considered crucial to connect the

:20:51.:20:56.

city to the neighbourhood where most of the competitions will happen,

:20:57.:20:59.

there is a threat the line won't be ready. The mayor has assured people

:21:00.:21:06.

it will. People want to believe things will turn out well and,

:21:07.:21:11.

apparently, things will, but we don't know how good the legacy will

:21:12.:21:13.

be. Thanks very much. The chief suspect in November's

:21:14.:21:17.

terrorist attacks in Paris, Salah Abdeslam, has been put under

:21:18.:21:19.

formal investigation He's appeared in court in the French

capital amid tight security Salah Abdeslam was arrested

:21:22.:21:25.

in Brussels in March, He faces charges in France

:21:26.:21:30.

of belonging to a terrorist organisation, murder, kidnapping

:21:31.:21:34.

and using weapons and explosives. 130 people died

:21:35.:21:36.

in the Paris attacks. Salah Abdeslam has spent most

:21:37.:21:39.

of the day in court. By the time he left,

:21:40.:21:43.

he had been placed under formal investigation facing more

:21:44.:21:47.

than half a dozen charges. Association with terrorists

:21:48.:21:49.

and conspiracy to commit attacks, murder and attempted murder

:21:50.:21:56.

and owning weapons and explosives Salah Abdeslam said very

:21:57.:22:00.

little during his hearing despite the fact his lawyer

:22:01.:22:07.

said his client was very eager to explain himself

:22:08.:22:10.

to French investigators. He was flown from Belgium this

:22:11.:22:15.

morning under heavy armed guard and that was the reason he said

:22:16.:22:18.

he didn't want to speak today. He was still suffering

:22:19.:22:23.

the effects of the transition. Nevertheless, tonight, with him

:22:24.:22:26.

in custody under heavy security, we are told that solitary

:22:45.:22:47.

the bomber as a 25-year-old woman. The device detonated near Bursa's

from an Enid Blyton story A group of quick-thinking

English children who helped a police helicopter capture

two suspected burglars. They formed a human arrow pointing

in the direction of the suspects. The children, who are from Surrey,

as Duncan Kennedy reports. We have two persons

was very clever and it served a purpose. It made a difference? It

certainly did. Tonight, they all received a special

award from the police. Two men arrested on suspicion of burglary

:25:24.:25:27.

have since been released on bail. For the children, they are just
