Hillary Clinton on course to make history

:00:00.:00:09.

as the first woman to run for the White House.

:00:10.:00:13.

which should put the seal on on Hillary Clinton's nomination.

:00:14.:00:18.

But Bernie Sanders has yet to accept defeat.

:00:19.:00:25.

We'll get the latest from one of those, New Jersey.

:00:26.:00:27.

The BBC obtains exclusive material from Aleppo,

:00:28.:00:29.

showing the aftermath of airstrikes by Syria and Russia

:00:30.:00:31.

on rebel-held parts of the city over the past days.

:00:32.:00:34.

Chelsea's team doctor accepts a settlement

:00:35.:00:38.

in her discrimination case - the club apologises unreservedly.

:00:39.:00:42.

And why a British athlete has had his sperm frozen

:00:43.:00:45.

over fears about the prevalence of the Zika virus in Brazil.

:00:46.:01:05.

Hillary Clinton looks set to become the first ever woman

:01:06.:01:08.

chosen to run for US President by a major political party.

:01:09.:01:12.

But with voting underway in the last major primaries,

:01:13.:01:16.

the former First Lady looks likely to gain enough delegates

:01:17.:01:20.

needed to secure the Democratic Party nomination.

:01:21.:01:22.

But supporters of her rival, Senator Bernie Sanders,

:01:23.:01:24.

have said it's too early to call the contest.

:01:25.:01:28.

Our North America editor, Jon Sopel, reports from New York.

:01:29.:01:34.

In New York and across the US, Americans woke

:01:35.:01:36.

that was long-awaited, but is nonetheless historic.

:01:37.:01:43.

For the first time in this nation's history, a woman, Hillary Clinton,

:01:44.:01:46.

On the Hoboken ferry to Wall Street commute,

:01:47.:01:53.

Faced with the choice between Trump and Clinton?

:01:54.:01:58.

I'd rather throw myself off the boat right now

:01:59.:02:00.

I'm just not sure this is as good as we can do.

:02:01.:02:05.

You think you could do better than Hillary Clinton?

:02:06.:02:07.

I think we can do better than all of them.

:02:08.:02:10.

If I had to choose between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump,

:02:11.:02:12.

But that sounds like she is the least worst option.

:02:13.:02:17.

Pollsters here measure favourability ratings,

:02:18.:02:22.

and both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton

:02:23.:02:24.

are right off the scale on how unfavourably people view them.

:02:25.:02:32.

This could be an election not about who you like the most,

:02:33.:02:34.

# Cos I've still got a lot of fight left in me... #

:02:35.:02:41.

Last night in California, with her fight song playing,

:02:42.:02:45.

Hillary Clinton learned that glass ceiling she was only able

:02:46.:02:48.

to crack eight years ago had finally shattered.

:02:49.:02:52.

We are on the brink of a historic, historic, unprecedented moment.

:02:53.:03:01.

But we still have work to do, don't we?

:03:02.:03:05.

And, at her campaign headquarters, which the BBC was given access to,

:03:06.:03:08.

First, she has to unite the Democratic party,

:03:09.:03:11.

and then work out how to fight Donald Trump.

:03:12.:03:15.

You can't be passive the face of Donald Trump,

:03:16.:03:17.

and just assume that people will be enlightened and will quickly

:03:18.:03:20.

come to the conclusion that the cannot accept him.

:03:21.:03:22.

you have to prosecute a case about why he is uniquely disqualified.

:03:23.:03:31.

We're not going to hesitate on a day-to-day basis...

:03:32.:03:33.

But what we're not going to do, what you're not going to see us do,

:03:34.:03:39.

is see us sink down to his depths and get into the gutter

:03:40.:03:42.

In a high-tech campaign, a decidedly low-tech

:03:43.:03:45.

Hillary Clinton has seen off Bernie Sanders.

:03:46.:03:48.

Our correspondent is in New Jersey, where voting is underway.

:03:49.:04:04.

One of the many places that people are getting the chance to actually

:04:05.:04:10.

cast their vote on this. In a way, you could say it is an helpful for

:04:11.:04:13.

the Clinton team to have this projection of victory because they

:04:14.:04:20.

want people to turn out, don't they? Yes, they do, although a lower

:04:21.:04:23.

turnout may help Hillary Clinton more than it does Bernie Sanders

:04:24.:04:29.

will stop it is a bit of six of one, half a dozen of the other. What they

:04:30.:04:33.

will be concerned about is the presumption, the assumption, the

:04:34.:04:37.

sense that they think it is all over when there are still six states that

:04:38.:04:40.

are voting to the, here in New Jersey and across to California

:04:41.:04:46.

later on. They will be in courage and people do try and go out to vote

:04:47.:04:49.

as well. They are clearly turning their attention to what happens

:04:50.:04:55.

after these primaries. We have just learned that Hillary Clinton next

:04:56.:05:00.

week, Monday and Tuesday of next week, she will be in Ohio and

:05:01.:05:05.

Pennsylvania. You might ask why, because they have at their

:05:06.:05:10.

primaries. The swing states, massive swing states in the general

:05:11.:05:14.

election. She clearly thinks the general election campaign really

:05:15.:05:20.

starts very soon. That begs the question, what does Bernie Sanders

:05:21.:05:23.

do after tonight? Does he throw in the towel if he is significantly

:05:24.:05:27.

behind her still, does he fight through to the convention, tried to

:05:28.:05:31.

persuade those on pledged delegates to come over to him? We know that

:05:32.:05:37.

Bernie Sunder had a discussion with President Obama on Sunday. I'm sure

:05:38.:05:41.

he would not be saying, let's drag this out for as long as possible. So

:05:42.:05:46.

we are expecting the president to weigh in soon and to say he wants to

:05:47.:05:51.

get out there on the stump to make sure that a Democrat gets into the

:05:52.:05:54.

White House in November, because they need to start taking on double

:05:55.:05:56.

trouble right now. Many thanks. we will be speaking with BBC

:05:57.:05:59.

presenter Katty Kay in Washington. 11 people have died

:06:00.:06:09.

and dozens more have been injured following a rush-hour

:06:10.:06:12.

attack in Istanbul. A car packed with explosives

:06:13.:06:15.

was detonated remotely Seven police officers

:06:16.:06:17.

were among the dead. Our correspondent, Mark Lowen,

:06:18.:06:25.

is in Istanbul for us and was at the scene

:06:26.:06:27.

of the attack earlier today. He joins me now with

:06:28.:06:30.

the latest update. It must've been an awful to visit.

:06:31.:06:37.

It was, really. You can see the full force of the blast in the

:06:38.:06:41.

surrounding streets. When I went to the police cordon, as close as I

:06:42.:06:44.

could get to the scene of the attack, the windows and surrounding

:06:45.:06:48.

buildings were shattered. On several side streets leading up to the

:06:49.:06:55.

centre of the blast. That shows the force of the blast and the size of

:06:56.:06:57.

the explosion. I spoke to eyewitnesses there. One lady said

:06:58.:07:01.

she thought it was an earthquake initially. Another person said they

:07:02.:07:07.

thought it was a lightning strike. They saw a cloud of black going up

:07:08.:07:11.

from the street. This is a central area of Istanbul. A huge attack,

:07:12.:07:16.

targeting a police bus that was going past. 11 people killed, seven

:07:17.:07:21.

police officers and four civilians. 36 injured. Three of them are still

:07:22.:07:27.

in critical condition was not the president of Turkey went to see the

:07:28.:07:31.

injured in hospital and said that he vowed to continue with what he said

:07:32.:07:35.

was a fight against terrorism. Really, Turkey find itself

:07:36.:07:39.

surrounded by hostile groups at the moment, so-called Islamic State,

:07:40.:07:43.

that had been blamed for attacks in the last two months. The Kurdish

:07:44.:07:48.

bulletins on suspicion will fall, and the home-grown far left with as

:07:49.:07:53.

well. They are surrounded by really violent groups at the moment. Many

:07:54.:07:54.

thanks. Syria's President has been

:07:55.:07:57.

talking to the media, saying that the country's war

:07:58.:07:59.

against terrorism will continue Airstrikes by Syrian and Russian

:08:00.:08:01.

aircraft on rebel-held parts of Aleppo have intensified

:08:02.:08:06.

over the past days, The BBC has obtained

:08:07.:08:08.

exclusive material, showing the aftermath

:08:09.:08:12.

of the airstrikes. Some images there of the aftermath

:08:13.:08:14.

of air strikes in Aleppo. Now a look at some of

:08:15.:11:20.

the day's other news. The former French trader

:11:21.:11:23.

Jerome Kerviel, whose unauthorised transactions

:11:24.:11:24.

lost his bank over $5 million, has won a claim

:11:25.:11:26.

for unfair dismissal. A labour court in Paris said

:11:27.:11:28.

the bank, Societe Generale, had dismissed him not

:11:29.:11:31.

because of his actions, which it must have known of,

:11:32.:11:33.

but for their consequences. A large fire broke out in the

:11:34.:11:42.

Western German city of Dusseldorf. The centre acts

:11:43.:11:52.

as an accommodation hub for refugees waiting

:11:53.:11:54.

to be sent elsewhere. According to reports,

:11:55.:11:56.

everyone inside the hall, where 130 refugees were staying,

:11:57.:11:57.

was brought to safety. Two men have been arrested

:11:58.:12:00.

in connection with the fire. Both are thought to be

:12:01.:12:02.

residents at the camp. The British long jumper

:12:03.:12:04.

Greg Rutherford has had his sperm frozen ahead of the Rio Olympics

:12:05.:12:07.

over fears about the prevalence of the Zika virus in Brazil,

:12:08.:12:09.

which can cause birth defects. Writing on a blog, his wife,

:12:10.:12:12.

Susie Verrill, said the couple had taken the decision

:12:13.:12:15.

as they want to have more children and don't want to put themselves,

:12:16.:12:17.

quote, "in a situation

:12:18.:12:19.

which could have been prevented". She also wrote that she

:12:20.:12:22.

and the couple's son Professor Ian Jones

:12:23.:12:24.

is a leading virologist at the University of

:12:25.:12:29.

Reading here in the UK. He joins me now from

:12:30.:12:31.

our Oxford Studio. Thanks for joining us. The think

:12:32.:12:39.

this is a sensible precaution on their part? I, ultimately, it is a

:12:40.:12:50.

personal choice. If you were to ask me, do I think that the risk that

:12:51.:12:53.

they are worried about is a reasonable risk, I think the answer

:12:54.:13:00.

is no. Why is that? The situation at the beginning of the, which was well

:13:01.:13:06.

covered by the press, was that the word macro virus was transmitting

:13:07.:13:10.

freely, this was a new academic, and as you are aware that had just

:13:11.:13:15.

reported, it was associated with the possible cause of some birth

:13:16.:13:22.

defects. The numbers of cases have dropped dramatically recently. There

:13:23.:13:26.

is not so much Maskey to biting inner cities, it tends to be in

:13:27.:13:31.

rural zones. The traditional season for this type of virus will be from

:13:32.:13:35.

January to March. At most, something like me. By the time August comes

:13:36.:13:39.

around, they'll be very devil biting around. There will be very little

:13:40.:13:46.

chance of contracting Zika. -- there is very little biting. The chance of

:13:47.:13:53.

break transferring this to his wife is very small. Yet researchers

:13:54.:13:59.

called on the Olympics in the last few weeks to be moved or delayed

:14:00.:14:08.

because they are worried. And other illnesses have been linked to this

:14:09.:14:10.

virus. Surely people should be worried? Some athletes have thought

:14:11.:14:14.

about it as well. They have taken their own decisions, either to not

:14:15.:14:19.

participate or not to have their partners attend. Like I say, if you

:14:20.:14:25.

asked a straight question, is there a risk of Zika in that part of the

:14:26.:14:29.

world? The answer is yes. If you ask how big the risk is, it is extremely

:14:30.:14:35.

small. By August, my view is that the risk will be effectively zero.

:14:36.:14:42.

The 150 doctors you talk about are largely public-health experts who

:14:43.:14:47.

are concerned about, if bitten, if the virus transmits, if it gets into

:14:48.:14:51.

pregnant women, what sort of number of people could be affected. The

:14:52.:14:57.

actual chance of infection at that time of year is going to be

:14:58.:15:03.

extremely small. So that, what if, argument does not hold much weight.

:15:04.:15:09.

The problem is, for the public, who are getting lots of sets of

:15:10.:15:12.

information, it is difficult to make a decision if you are not a

:15:13.:15:15.

scientist and don't have the maths around the risk rates. At the end of

:15:16.:15:20.

the day, if you do get theirs or transmit this, the results can be

:15:21.:15:24.

catastrophic. Absolutely. As I said, this is a very personal decision. I

:15:25.:15:31.

would not want to contradict that decision in any way. It is for the

:15:32.:15:35.

couple concerned to make that decision. I can tell you the risk is

:15:36.:15:40.

exhume the small, and I would ask those that are considering this to

:15:41.:15:44.

note that, compared to the coverage of the press a couple of months ago,

:15:45.:15:50.

coverage now is very small. The number of cases now been reported is

:15:51.:15:57.

extremely small. The link between this virus and what it could

:15:58.:16:03.

possibly do is yet to be fully proven. On top of that, the number

:16:04.:16:07.

of cases we are talking about will be down to almost zero by the time

:16:08.:16:12.

of the Olympics. In all, I think the risk is quite acceptable. Many

:16:13.:16:15.

thanks for your time. Chelsea has apologised unreservedly

:16:16.:16:18.

after it settled a discrimination case with the

:16:19.:16:19.

team's former doctor, Eva Carneiro. It follows an incident last August

:16:20.:16:25.

when Ms Carneiro ran on to the pitch to treat a player, despite

:16:26.:16:29.

objections from the club's "fulfilling her responsibility

:16:30.:16:31.

to the players as a doctor". Today was supposed to be Doctor Eva

:16:32.:16:51.

Carneiro's the day in court. But when Jose Mourinho, the biggest

:16:52.:16:56.

manager in the world, arrived unexpectedly, accompanied by senior

:16:57.:16:59.

figures from Chelsea, it was a signal that a settlement was close

:17:00.:17:04.

to being reached. The root of the dispute go back to last August, in

:17:05.:17:09.

Chelsea's opening fixture of the season against Swansea. He was

:17:10.:17:13.

incensed when the doctor ran onto the page to treat an injured player,

:17:14.:17:17.

leaving his team a man down as they were chasing a winning goal. She

:17:18.:17:25.

claims he called her the drug future in Portuguese, which he and Chelsea

:17:26.:17:29.

deny. He called the medical team impulses, naive and said the did not

:17:30.:17:32.

understand football. Within weeks, she resigned and started her action.

:17:33.:17:40.

Today, the club apologised unreservedly. In a statement,

:17:41.:17:41.

Chelsea said... Chelsea offered Eva Carneiro ?1.2

:17:42.:18:08.

million to settle this claim, but it was rejected. On the opening day of

:18:09.:18:11.

this hearing, there was astonishing detail laid out before the tribunal

:18:12.:18:14.

about the nature of her claims against Chelsea and Jose Mourinho.

:18:15.:18:20.

They have now reached an agreement, and it is covered and we may never

:18:21.:18:23.

know the terms. She can look forward to moving on with life, putting saga

:18:24.:18:28.

behind her. In a statement, she said...

:18:29.:18:45.

The drama wasn't quite yet finished. There were chaotic scenes as first

:18:46.:18:52.

Eva Carneiro left the tribunal after the formalities had been concluded.

:18:53.:18:58.

Then Jose Mourinho was eventually bundled into his waiting car. He is

:18:59.:19:03.

now free to carry on as the new manager of Manchester United,

:19:04.:19:07.

knowing the confidential agreement and any further embarrassment from

:19:08.:19:13.

this to feud -- from this dispute has been avoided.

:19:14.:19:15.

Now you'll remember the story we brought you last week

:19:16.:19:17.

about a young Japanese boy - Yamato Tanooka -

:19:18.:19:19.

whose parents abandoned him in a forest as a punishment.

:19:20.:19:22.

Well, we also reported that he had survived

:19:23.:19:24.

He waved at the cameras and said he was fine.

:19:25.:19:31.

Yamoto's father said in an interview on Monday that his son

:19:32.:19:34.

had forgiven him and that the police will not be pressing charges.

:19:35.:19:37.

After rescue workers spent days searching the mountainous area,

:19:38.:19:39.

Yamoto was found sheltering in a hut on a military field.

:19:40.:19:42.

As we heard earlier, Hillary Clinton is on the verge

:19:43.:19:44.

of becoming the first woman chosen to run for the US Presidency,

:19:45.:19:47.

concluded she had passed the required number of delegates

:19:48.:19:53.

BBC presenter Katty Kay joins me from Washington now.

:19:54.:20:00.

I saw on your blog that you are wondering why you are not quite as

:20:01.:20:05.

excited by this incredible news as you might be. I pondered, Ireland

:20:06.:20:12.

are covering the Monica Lewinsky scandal many years ago and to think

:20:13.:20:16.

that Hillary Clinton has come from globally humiliated to being a major

:20:17.:20:21.

contender for the White House is any credible league.

:20:22.:20:25.

This is a historic day, whether you are a Democrat or a Republican or

:20:26.:20:30.

agnostic on politics. The fact that, after 44 male presidents, America

:20:31.:20:35.

has now dominated for a major party a woman to be the candidate, and she

:20:36.:20:38.

has a good chance of winning this election in November. That is

:20:39.:20:42.

extraordinary. What I have been hearing from women voters as I have

:20:43.:20:47.

been speaking to them in the last few weeks is a sense that Hillary

:20:48.:20:50.

Clinton has been around a long time, she has been running for president

:20:51.:20:56.

since 2007, which he first declared on that first nomination against

:20:57.:21:02.

Barack Obama. Younger women voters seem much more confident than all

:21:03.:21:06.

the women here that they are going to have a female president during

:21:07.:21:10.

the course of their lifetime, there just not quite convinced that they

:21:11.:21:13.

wanted to be Hillary Clinton. Do you think she is maybe the victim of our

:21:14.:21:18.

own success, the sex of the whole Clinton brand, it is seen as so much

:21:19.:21:27.

a part of the astonishment, and it is possibly tainted, and also the

:21:28.:21:32.

cynicism of journalists? One of the things I have heard from Younger

:21:33.:21:38.

women is that Hillary Clinton does not connect with them, she is stiff,

:21:39.:21:42.

she a classic politician, and she is old news. As you suggest, she has

:21:43.:21:47.

been around a long time. As we move from this primary stage of the

:21:48.:21:50.

presidential race into the matchup between Donald Trump and Hillary

:21:51.:21:54.

Clinton, so that will change. It is worth and bring that into thousand

:21:55.:21:58.

eight, after Barack Obama's supporters had originally supported

:21:59.:22:02.

Hillary Clinton and said they would never vote for Barack Obama. Your

:22:03.:22:11.

hearing that from Bernie Sanders' supporters, but I think they will

:22:12.:22:16.

vote for her. It is interesting to see what Mr Sanders says when this

:22:17.:22:20.

result is clarified. But then we get the head-to-head contest, and again

:22:21.:22:25.

we are seeing today fears, worries about Donald Trump from his own

:22:26.:22:32.

team. It is interesting. Here is Hillary Clinton, solidifying the

:22:33.:22:35.

Democratic party around her, having a very important day in the history

:22:36.:22:40.

of her campaign and her bid for the White House. On the very same day,

:22:41.:22:46.

you have Donald Trump getting criticised, slammed by senior

:22:47.:22:49.

Republicans, Adam adjust any Republicans, the most senior elected

:22:50.:22:57.

Republican, the Speaker of the house, effectively calling dollar

:22:58.:23:05.

company basis. -- calling dollar Trump a racist.

:23:06.:23:07.

About these comments, I regret these comments that he made.

:23:08.:23:10.

Claiming a person can't do their job because of their race

:23:11.:23:13.

is the textbook definition of a racist comment.

:23:14.:23:15.

I think that should be absolutely disavowed.

:23:16.:23:17.

But do I believe that Hillary Clinton is the answer?

:23:18.:23:20.

Very interesting. Of course, Mr Trump getting all of the headlines.

:23:21.:23:26.

President Obama, is the expected comment and endorse Hillary Clinton?

:23:27.:23:31.

Will we then the nature of this election change? What Paul Ryan was

:23:32.:23:37.

referring to there was a Mexican judge, a judge of Mexican heritage,

:23:38.:23:41.
