Highway from hell: Canadian police and military lead convoys

:00:08.:00:14.

of people to safety, as there are warnings the fire

:00:15.:00:16.

My name is Sadiq Khan, and I'm the Mayor of London.

:00:17.:00:25.

Sadiq Khan of Britain's main opposition Labour Party takes office

:00:26.:00:31.

as the first Muslim mayor of London.

:00:32.:00:34.

Inside one of the world's most repressive regime's.

:00:35.:00:36.

North Korea holds a party congress, a chance for it's leader

:00:37.:00:39.

And one of the greatest achievements in English football history,

:00:40.:00:51.

Leicester City finally get their hands on the

:00:52.:00:53.

Officials in Canada say the massive wildfire that's been raging for five

:00:54.:01:07.

days in the province of Alberta could double in size by the end

:01:08.:01:11.

The fire - which is being fanned by strong winds and scorching heat -

:01:12.:01:28.

already covers more than 1500 square kilometres around Fort McMurray,

:01:29.:01:31.

and there are warnings that it could burn to the edges

:01:32.:01:33.

of the Sun-cor oil sands facility Changing winds have forced

:01:34.:01:36.

of people, who had already been forced to leave their homes.

:01:37.:01:39.

The Premier of Alberta, Rachel Notley, appealed to those

:01:40.:01:42.

We can speak now to Andrew Bond - he and his family fled the fires

:01:43.:02:32.

earlier this week and are staying at Grey Wolf Camp just

:02:33.:02:35.

They were making sure that everybody knew that the fire was coming. This

:02:36.:04:33.

isn't the first time my family and I have seen them. You can't just

:04:34.:04:38.

evacuate everybody for every single risk. I think they did an incredibly

:04:39.:04:47.

good job of getting people out. Finally, just tell us about the act

:04:48.:04:54.

of kindness that you have seen. It is mind blowing. We are very

:04:55.:04:58.

fortunate that we know our house is still standing, at least so far.

:04:59.:05:03.

Even as we were coming down the highway there are people stop at the

:05:04.:05:05.

side of the road from communities all across Canada, individuals who

:05:06.:05:11.

have come up here. Great support. Fuel, food, clothing. The Legion has

:05:12.:05:19.

just provided clothing for my family, toys for my children to make

:05:20.:05:24.

it more normal for them. It is incredible what people are doing. We

:05:25.:05:29.

just cannot be more thankful for what people have done. As I have

:05:30.:05:37.

said too many people, it feels like -- felt like we were standing on the

:05:38.:05:41.

deck of the Titanic watching it burnt, but we will recover. It is a

:05:42.:05:46.

very strong community. People will pull together. We will make it

:05:47.:05:51.

strong again. Thank you so much for sparing the time to speak to us

:05:52.:05:57.

here. Our reporter has been to a support centre for evacuees and

:05:58.:06:01.

spoke to volunteers there. This is where hundreds of people have been

:06:02.:06:06.

bringing donations. We have children's clothes, adult clothes,

:06:07.:06:10.

food, food for pets who have had to flee the fire. 80,000 people have

:06:11.:06:17.

had to flee Fort McMurray. With BR to volunteers helping to coordinate

:06:18.:06:21.

this. Britney, it is incredible the amount of things that people have

:06:22.:06:26.

brought. Yes, it is. It has been very good. Lots of generosity. Why

:06:27.:06:31.

do you think people have reacted in this way? There is a sense of giving

:06:32.:06:39.

and just making sure people know they need. They are having terrible

:06:40.:06:45.

time. Some people didn't have the money to just leave and run away to

:06:46.:06:49.

a different city so we are helping how we can. One of the things we

:06:50.:06:53.

have been hearing is that they just left with nothing and they just

:06:54.:06:57.

don't know when they will get back. Is that seeing? Yes, we are packing

:06:58.:07:03.

up duffle bags, making sure they have enough of the week. They will

:07:04.:07:07.

know with the film is going to be usable again. Taylor, why did you

:07:08.:07:12.

volunteer? The same reason that she did. Seeing people in need of help

:07:13.:07:17.

and coming together as a community and having that compassion. It makes

:07:18.:07:22.

you feel really good. Have people got homes to go to while they are

:07:23.:07:28.

here? A lot of hotels are helping out around here. A lot of locals

:07:29.:07:35.

have opened up their houses. You are allowed to park your trailer on the

:07:36.:07:41.

side of the road. It has been very nice. Lots of help from this book.

:07:42.:07:46.

Social media seems to be something that is really helped. It is. London

:07:47.:07:57.

has a new mayor. City can from the Labour Party. He is the first Muslim

:07:58.:08:01.

to hold the post in the European capital.

:08:02.:08:19.

In the splendour of Southwark Cathedral, a standing ovation for a

:08:20.:08:24.

London's first Muslim mayor. They deliberately chose the venue to

:08:25.:08:30.

celebrate diversity. That is what the new mayor promised to do when he

:08:31.:08:34.

set out what and whom he will stand for. To represent every single

:08:35.:08:40.

community and every single parts of our city as mayor for all Londoners.

:08:41.:08:48.

In the sea of faces, some famous, one was notably at -- absent, Jeremy

:08:49.:08:54.

Corbyn did not attend, but the former leader was on the front row.

:08:55.:09:01.

Jamie was obviously supporting temp one. I know how important it is to

:09:02.:09:06.

support candidates. It is a win for Sadiq Khan and the Labour Party.

:09:07.:09:10.

Sadiq Khan ran his campaign at arms length from the Labour leader. Was

:09:11.:09:16.

it a vote for Sadiq Khan or four Jeremy Corbyn? I think it was a vote

:09:17.:09:20.

for a London. It shows that we are far better together. London is proud

:09:21.:09:30.

that the bus driver -- the son of a bus driver from a council estate can

:09:31.:09:35.

be the Mayor of the great city. His opponent was accused of a divisive

:09:36.:09:40.

campaign to link to link his rival to Islamic extremists. Critics say

:09:41.:09:48.

temp two Goldsmith damaged his party on race and religion. He was

:09:49.:09:51.

tight-lipped this morning, leaving others to defend his back recs. In

:09:52.:09:56.

an election for one of the most important elected offices in

:09:57.:10:00.

Britain, it is right that people are scrutinised as candidates, the past

:10:01.:10:05.

associations on the policy positions, but he hunted them. That

:10:06.:10:10.

is over now. Meanwhile, Sadiq Khan is in high spirits after this win.

:10:11.:10:15.

It is a boost for Labour in an otherwise disappointing set of

:10:16.:10:19.

election results. The fact that the nude London Mayor has distanced

:10:20.:10:21.

himself from Jeremy Corbyn instead is a limit to the credit that the

:10:22.:10:27.

Labour leader can take for this win. For now it belongs to the new face

:10:28.:10:34.

of London. Police have used tear gas and flares

:10:35.:10:37.

again several hundred protesters at the Brenner pass on the border

:10:38.:10:42.

between Austria and Italy. The demonstrators were protesting

:10:43.:10:43.

against Austrian plans to introduce stricter border -- border controls.

:10:44.:10:51.

If more migrants arrived the they want to reduce the number of

:10:52.:10:55.

migrants heading north from Italy. Let's get some other news. He

:10:56.:11:00.

remaining members of the Nato mission in Afghanistan have been

:11:01.:11:02.

killed in the south of the country. They died when two attackers wearing

:11:03.:11:06.

the uniform of Afghan security forces opened fire. The shooters

:11:07.:11:09.

were killed at the scene by other members of the international

:11:10.:11:10.

mission. Tens of thousands of people have

:11:11.:11:14.

marched through the Polish capital, Police estimate 30,000 people

:11:15.:11:17.

demonstrated against the policies of the governing, conservative Law

:11:18.:11:20.

and Justice Party. Protesters say it's

:11:21.:11:22.

violated European values. Earlier, Polish nationalist

and religious groups Amid a display of mass

unity and obedience, North Korea is holding

:11:26.:11:53.

a Workers Party Congress, The Congress is the country's

:11:54.:11:55.

highest political gathering and the young leader, Kim Jong-un,

:11:56.:12:02.

is thought to be using it Our correspondent John

Sudworth is in Pyongyang. North Koreans are allowed

mobile phones these days, it's just they can't connect

to the Internet. This is a country that has defied

:12:19.:12:28.

history, under a government that There is, of course,

:12:29.:12:31.

a message behind this party congres. Kim Jong-un, like his father

:12:32.:12:35.

and grandfather before And, like them, he will expect

:12:36.:12:41.

to be worshipped. At a shrine to the ruling family,

:12:42.:12:45.

I find myself in a bit of trouble. The guides at the museum have taken

:12:46.:12:54.

great offence to my having taken I think they are objecting

:12:55.:13:11.

to the fact the photo I took has cut off a small portion of the face

:13:12.:13:20.

of the young Kim Jong-il. We do get to see some

:13:21.:13:26.

real North Korean life - a surprise kickabout

:13:27.:13:39.

with a factory football team. Conversation, though,

:13:40.:13:41.

takes place under the watchful eye TRANSLATION: We follow only

Marshall Kim Jong Un, In most countries politics is about

:13:43.:13:45.

changing the system - not here. Stay with us on BBC

:13:46.:14:01.

World News, still to come: We look at the deliberate

:14:02.:14:13.

targeting of hospitals Officials in Canada say the wildfire

:14:14.:14:15.

that is raging near the oil town of Fort McMurray will double in size

:14:16.:15:29.

in the next 24 hours. Sadiq Khan has taken office

:15:30.:15:32.

as the first Muslim mayor of London. Deliberate targeting of hospitals

:15:33.:15:46.

and medical professionals But a study by the International Red

:15:47.:15:50.

Cross has found that within the last three years 2,400 attacks

:15:51.:15:55.

against patients, health care personnel, facilities

:15:56.:15:57.

and transport occurred That's more than two

:15:58.:15:58.

attacks per day. A rally took place in London today

:15:59.:16:00.

demanding the end to targeting of health care services

:16:01.:16:03.

and workers in war zones. I asked Widney Brown,

:16:04.:16:06.

director of New York based organisation Physicians

:16:07.:16:08.

for Human Rights - They started with the Nile. They've

:16:09.:16:46.

changed their stories about five times in that it really clear that

:16:47.:16:50.

they were not going to really take it seriously. Then there was a lot

:16:51.:16:55.

of pressure so the government did undertake an investigation. That was

:16:56.:16:59.

positive. What is bad is that despite finding so much negligence

:17:00.:17:04.

there is only going to beast minor sanctions against the 16 people

:17:05.:17:10.

known to be accountable, no criminal accountability without that, if sent

:17:11.:17:16.

the message that impunity reigns. What message would you like to see

:17:17.:17:21.

scent of those people? To those people whose recklessness led to the

:17:22.:17:24.

level of criminality digit pin of war crimes prosecution. Bob Dudley

:17:25.:17:29.

issues in Syria given the fact there are so many warring parties on the

:17:30.:17:34.

ground? In this case we have not had trouble figuring out who was

:17:35.:17:38.

responsible. In part because the Syrians and Russians with a group

:17:39.:17:43.

that had aeroplanes and most of these bombings of hospitals. Barrel

:17:44.:17:48.

bombs from hospitals and air strikes from fighter jets. The opposition

:17:49.:17:53.

groups do not have an air force so it is very easy to attribute

:17:54.:17:57.

responsibility for these attacks because of that. Given the fact that

:17:58.:18:01.

medical staff have protection under humanitarian law and that is not

:18:02.:18:06.

being respected, do you think that medical staff should start

:18:07.:18:09.

withdrawing from war zones? It would be interesting to see. I think there

:18:10.:18:14.

is a huge quantity per doctors and other health professionals because

:18:15.:18:17.

they see the desperate need and awards are some of the need is much

:18:18.:18:24.

greater than it is in peacetime. They feel an obligation to do

:18:25.:18:28.

whatever they can to help. When I red Crescent -- a red Crescent

:18:29.:18:35.

becomes a target as opposed to The Shield, you can understand people

:18:36.:18:40.

wanting to move. Now, the sport. There have been jubilant scenes in

:18:41.:18:43.

the city of Leicester today as they played their first match since being

:18:44.:18:47.

crowned Premier League champions. In front of their own fans Steve worthy

:18:48.:18:56.

a lifelong fan one the right to present the trophy to Claudio

:18:57.:19:00.

Ranieri and Wes Morgan, the captain. There were given a guard of honour

:19:01.:19:09.

and a rendition of Nesson Dormer. Still not really sunk in. It was

:19:10.:19:12.

nice to get it done in such a convincing fashion.

:19:13.:19:26.

It is mental. The hard work that has gone into it, having a team-mate to

:19:27.:19:32.

run me that I've got is unbelievable. When you look at

:19:33.:19:35.

Leicester, it is everyone. What can I say, it is unbelievable!

:19:36.:20:00.

Coming to Leicester, winning the Premier League, it is an

:20:01.:20:03.

unbelievable moment. One of the best days in my life.

:20:04.:20:05.

Sunderland came from behind twice to beat Chelsea 3-2 and move out of

:20:06.:20:08.

Jermain Defoe got the winner which sees Sunderland go

:20:09.:20:12.

above their North East rivals Newcastle.

:20:13.:20:16.

One win from their remaining two games will be enough

:20:17.:20:18.

I suppose he starred on the point that it is the first time that we

:20:19.:20:29.

have come from behind to win a game of that role this season. That shows

:20:30.:20:34.

the mentality, desire and the quality of our players against a

:20:35.:20:39.

very talented Chelsea squad. The character and the determination and

:20:40.:20:43.

the desire from the players has shone through today to help us win

:20:44.:20:47.

this game of football, along with the quality of our finishing, at

:20:48.:20:50.

Newcastle could only manage a goalless draw against already

:20:51.:20:53.

relegated Aston Villa - who had lost their last

:20:54.:20:56.

Rafa Benitez and his team are one point behind Sunderland,

:20:57.:20:59.

but their local rivals have a game in hand.

:21:00.:21:01.

Norwich City also appear to be heading for the Championship.

:21:02.:21:06.

They were beaten by Manchester United 1-0.

:21:07.:21:08.

Louis Van Gaal's side remain fifth, one point behind Manchester City.

:21:09.:21:11.

Realistically, only two wins and none for their

:21:12.:21:13.

Meanwhile, Middlesbrough are celebrating promotion

:21:14.:21:18.

TO the Premier League.Their game with Brighton was the decider

:21:19.:21:20.

A 1-1 draw was enough for Boro to clinch promotion and a return

:21:21.:21:27.

to the Premier League after a seven year absence.

:21:28.:21:30.

Another man who'll be competing in the Premier League next season

:21:31.:21:33.

is Bayern Munich's coach Pep Guardiola.

:21:34.:21:35.

His side won an an unprecedented 4th straight Bundesliga

:21:36.:21:37.

Robert Lewandowki scored twice in the 2-1 victory

:21:38.:21:45.

Guardiola is leaving to coach Manchester City next season.

:21:46.:21:51.

Belgium captain Vincent Kompany has confirmed he will miss this summer's

:21:52.:21:54.

European Championship in France because of a groin injury.

:21:55.:21:56.

He's confirmed on Social media he won't make the tournament saying

:21:57.:21:59.

He was substituted after 10 minutes of Manchester City's Champions

:22:00.:22:09.

League defeat at Real Madrid last Wednesday.

:22:10.:22:11.

Defending champion Andy Murray is into the final of the Madrid Masters

:22:12.:22:14.

after beating Rafa Nadal in straight sets.

:22:15.:22:17.

It's only Murray's second ever win over Nadal on clay,

:22:18.:22:20.

the last coming in this event last year, as he won the trophy.

:22:21.:22:26.

Murray will play either Novak Djokovic or Kei Nishikori

:22:27.:22:28.

who are playing their semi-final right now.

:22:29.:22:31.

One of Africa's largest slums has become the unlikely

:22:32.:22:50.

home to a community of child citizen journalists.

:22:51.:22:52.

Young residents of the Kibera slum in Nairobi are being taught how

:22:53.:22:55.

to make DIY magazines known as zines which paint

:22:56.:22:57.

an intriguing picture of their lives outside the Kenyan capital.

:22:58.:22:59.

I am lucky and I am the editor. It is a magazine that you make yourself

:23:00.:23:57.

so your voice can be heard. A good story is a true story. We did not

:23:58.:24:04.

have money so it is important to make our materials go far. My name

:24:05.:24:19.

is Leonard. I am a photographer. It is basically a method of teaching

:24:20.:24:23.

people how to make a magazine in seven days, using photocopies, which

:24:24.:24:29.

is always the way it was done. It is quite fun and anti-authoritarian. We

:24:30.:24:36.

taught them how to take photos, interview people. It is pretty wild.

:24:37.:24:41.

How UK cheque into quite an interview people, they are so

:24:42.:24:44.

empowered they come like a bit of a weapon! They went to interview an

:24:45.:24:55.

alcoholic, then they followed that story to the lady who made

:24:56.:24:58.

moonshine. She explained the financial difficulties that she had.

:24:59.:25:04.

Then the interviewed the pharmacist about the kinds of sicknesses and

:25:05.:25:08.

illnesses and how she treats them. They were basically following a

:25:09.:25:12.

narrative from the beginning to the ends and they were completely

:25:13.:25:16.

disarming. One of the stories that the kids told us was about the Nike

:25:17.:25:20.

runners. They are this crazy group that are always basically practising

:25:21.:25:27.

what is basically believed to be witchcraft in the Skandia. They

:25:28.:25:31.

strip off at night, run around a knock on doors and disturbed people.

:25:32.:25:36.

It is a cultural thing, it is accepted. He would never ratified

:25:37.:25:42.

somebody who was night running. The kids told us that. The focus of the

:25:43.:25:48.

magazine became county interview and Micron, and why do they do this? To

:25:49.:25:52.

that extent I don't know whether it is journalism or fiction but it is

:25:53.:25:55.

definitely storytelling. 25 degrees today, it could be even

:25:56.:26:15.

warmer tomorrow. It is not all about the sunshine. There has been a lot

:26:16.:26:18.

of cloud around

:26:19.:26:19.
