Hello and welcome to World News Today.

:00:00.:00:00.

High emotion as tens of thousands of people pay their respects to

:00:07.:00:25.

Muhammad Ali. Chanting, cheering and tears as his Cortez is driven

:00:26.:00:29.

through his hometown. Mike Tyson and Will Smith were among the

:00:30.:00:42.

pallbearers. Unprecedented security in Paris as fans gather for the Euro

:00:43.:00:52.

2016 tournament. Kick-off for the France game against Romania is in

:00:53.:01:01.

one hour. And a National Service of thanks giving forward the Queen in

:01:02.:01:06.

London to mark the 90th birthday. It is a double celebration as the Duke

:01:07.:01:07.

of Edinburgh attends 95. 74 years ago, Cassius Marcellus Clay

:01:08.:01:24.

was born into a world of poverty and racial discrimination

:01:25.:01:27.

in Louisville, Kentucky. Today, thousands of fans gathered

:01:28.:01:30.

there for Muhamad Ali's funeral, celebrating the life

:01:31.:01:34.

of arguably the best-loved We can cross live now

:01:35.:01:35.

to Laura Trevelyan in Louisville. It's an emotional day he here, where

:01:36.:02:00.

thousands of people have lined the route of Muhammad Ali's final

:02:01.:02:07.

journey. People threw flowers, they cried, cheered, chanted. This is a

:02:08.:02:12.

day that Muhammad Ali himself happily choreographed, every detail,

:02:13.:02:17.

from the root of his final procession to the memorial service

:02:18.:02:20.

that will be held this afternoon. He wanted is like to be held in the way

:02:21.:02:24.

that he chose, his performance inside the ring and outside the ring

:02:25.:02:29.

as a civil rights advocate and a proud American Muslim. Here is my

:02:30.:02:36.

colleague John south. The man they call the Louisville lip

:02:37.:02:43.

on his final lap. At the funeral, pallbearers gather. Former world

:02:44.:02:53.

heavyweight Champion Mike Tyson, as his coughing is loaded into the

:02:54.:03:03.

hearse. A final journey that will take in the streets from around his

:03:04.:03:10.

home where he grew up, and where he fought the segregation of that time.

:03:11.:03:16.

Around him, the street I literally echoing to his name. Lining the

:03:17.:03:20.

route, those whose lives he touched and the people who knew him as a

:03:21.:03:28.

friend. What was he like as a man? Funny, he had a great sense of

:03:29.:03:33.

humour. He did the magical tricks. When you leave Ali, you always think

:03:34.:03:41.

because he has nothing to say to bring on wisdom. I was and still am

:03:42.:03:47.

very sad, but he left a legacy that will keep going. He has just gone

:03:48.:03:53.

very short time. He lives in us. Since his death was announced, the

:03:54.:04:00.

Muhammad Ali Centre has become a mini shrine, a people where people

:04:01.:04:04.

can come together. I spoke to his friend and fellow civil rights

:04:05.:04:12.

activist. They embrace his genius, the world, and I am sad because I

:04:13.:04:21.

will miss him. His life and legacy and music lives on. It may be over

:04:22.:04:27.

50 years since he fought his battles on race and the Vietnam War, and 50

:04:28.:04:32.

years since he became world Champion, but this is someone whose

:04:33.:04:35.

significance went way beyond sports and politics and he transcends the

:04:36.:04:42.

generations. There are young and old on the streets today, and to modern

:04:43.:04:47.

America, his fight against injustice and intolerance still resonates. He

:04:48.:04:54.

is a cultural icon, and to those on the streets, he was and still

:04:55.:05:04.

remains the greatest. Our North America editor reporting

:05:05.:05:07.

there. It feels as though the world has come to Louisville today, but

:05:08.:05:13.

one person who couldn't be here today was President Barack Obama,

:05:14.:05:17.

and that is because his daughters graduating from high school today

:05:18.:05:20.

and he wanted to be there. But he has paid tribute to Muhammad Ali.

:05:21.:05:26.

There have been times were I have been the underdog, just like the

:05:27.:05:30.

champ, and there were times when I got beat up a little bit and had to

:05:31.:05:37.

come back. That's what these boxing gloves represent. So I just want to

:05:38.:05:47.

say to you, not just all the fans around the world who drew such

:05:48.:05:50.

inspiration from Muhammad Ali, but most importantly to his family, to

:05:51.:05:59.

his wife and kids, to everybody who I know is celebrating a life this

:06:00.:06:07.

week, it's very rare where a figure captures the imagination of the

:06:08.:06:11.

entire world, and it even rarer when that figure does so by being open

:06:12.:06:25.

and funny and generous and courageous. He was one of a kind

:06:26.:06:32.

and, in my book, he will always be the greatest. President Obama there

:06:33.:06:40.

being tribute to Muhammad Ali. People have come from all corners of

:06:41.:06:44.

the world from across America to pay their respects to the boxing great.

:06:45.:06:50.

One of these people is the Reverend Jesse Jackson, the civil rights

:06:51.:06:53.

leader. Here's what he had to say earlier. He was the master of his

:06:54.:07:02.

skill, arguably the best boxer of all time, certainly in the world. He

:07:03.:07:14.

used that exalted platform to due two things, one was to reflect upon

:07:15.:07:19.

the painful past come he grew up in the racial apartheid, ... And he

:07:20.:07:27.

couldn't be served here in a restaurant in Louisville. His

:07:28.:07:33.

parents had to pay taxes and couldn't vote. He was pained by

:07:34.:07:46.

that. He chose to get better and not bitter. And I'm glad. He kept

:07:47.:07:54.

embracing all people and religions. It then became crunch time, to

:07:55.:08:07.

become killed... Said the US Government tried to draft him to the

:08:08.:08:11.

Vietnam War. But he said that he wouldn't fight in the Vietnam War.

:08:12.:08:14.

He said that he had no quarrel with them. 3 million people were killed

:08:15.:08:28.

in that war. He refused to go, but huge criticism by the press, by his

:08:29.:08:36.

own religion and friends, yet he lived to go from being reviled, he

:08:37.:08:42.

outlived the criticism of his and Taiwan position -- anti-war. He made

:08:43.:08:54.

such a sacrifice. He was banned from boxing for three years. Yes, and

:08:55.:09:02.

willing to go to jail for five years. That level of sacrifice takes

:09:03.:09:10.

him to a level of seriousness and authenticity beyond the average. He

:09:11.:09:16.

is a Champion in the boxing ring but a hero outside the ring. And that

:09:17.:09:20.

was the Reverend Jesse Jackson talking to me little earlier.

:09:21.:09:23.

Joining me to reflect on everything we have seen so far and what to come

:09:24.:09:31.

is BBC corresponded. It feels at the world is here. People have come from

:09:32.:09:35.

across the world and America. What have people been seen to you about

:09:36.:09:41.

what Muhammad Ali meant to them? They keep saying, he is one of us. I

:09:42.:09:48.

got here at seven o'clock in the morning and the queues were snaking

:09:49.:09:52.

around the building, three lanes deep. I spoke to someone who had

:09:53.:09:58.

stayed up all night to get a ticket for this. Another person had come

:09:59.:10:03.

all the way from Los Angeles, someone named after Muhammad Ali. He

:10:04.:10:10.

always made a point to himself that if you outlived Muhammad Ali, he

:10:11.:10:14.

would go to the funeral wherever it was because he Muhammad Ali was a

:10:15.:10:20.

beacon of hope for him. And what is your feeling about what Muhammad Ali

:10:21.:10:26.

stood for? What is driving people? I think it goes bigger than that.

:10:27.:10:30.

You're talking about a man who was willing to stand up and say, I had

:10:31.:10:36.

the greatest, at a time when America was racially divided. It was

:10:37.:10:39.

empowering, it made you feel proud to be black. A lot of people talk

:10:40.:10:45.

about how America was racially divided at the time, and they took a

:10:46.:10:52.

lot of inspiration about someone if you stayed strong in this adversity.

:10:53.:10:59.

Fighting for the biggest prize in boxing, that helped to cement his

:11:00.:11:05.

legacy. In the next hour or so, that star-studded memorial service is due

:11:06.:11:11.

to begin. What can we expect there? It was very carefully planned by the

:11:12.:11:15.

Muhammad Ali himself. Yes, it was a ten year plan. He signed off on its

:11:16.:11:23.

years ago. He wanted a demon, he wanted Bill Clinton to be given

:11:24.:11:35.

eulogies -- a theme. There are so many layers to him, which is why I

:11:36.:11:40.

think it will be so difficult to replace him in the future. It gave

:11:41.:11:49.

people courage to stand up and be antiestablishment. The fact that he

:11:50.:11:54.

was willing to risk it all shows how his influence goes way beyond that.

:11:55.:11:57.

I have spoken to people from all over the world and that shows the

:11:58.:12:02.

impact this man had. Thank you very much for joining us. That's memorial

:12:03.:12:07.

service will be carried live here on BBC news when it happens. We are

:12:08.:12:12.

expecting it to happen in about an hour. An extraordinary day here in

:12:13.:12:17.

Louisville, Kentucky, as their city remembers its a bit son Muhammad

:12:18.:12:30.

Ali. A National Service of thanksgiving has taken place at St

:12:31.:12:37.

Paul's Cathedral to mark the Queen's 90th birthday. The service was

:12:38.:12:41.

attended by members of the Royal family, including the Duke of

:12:42.:12:51.

Edinburgh on his own 95th birthday. Between them, they've known 185

:12:52.:12:56.

years of life's experiences, 90 years in the case of the Queen, 95

:12:57.:13:03.

years in the case of the Duke. He celebrates his birthday today. But

:13:04.:13:06.

if the long life of a monarch which brings together people in St Paul's

:13:07.:13:19.

Cathedral. For her faithful devotion, dutiful commitment, loving

:13:20.:13:24.

leadership, gentle constancy, royal dignity and kindly humanity. She's

:13:25.:13:31.

been known to tell clergyman not to overdo the praise on occasions like

:13:32.:13:37.

this, but as family members who will follow in her footsteps and

:13:38.:13:40.

politicians whose time on the national stage comes and goes

:13:41.:13:48.

listened, the Archbishop of Canterbury to find a contribution to

:13:49.:13:52.

national life, the likes of which we won't see again. We look back at Her

:13:53.:13:57.

Majesty's time in our nation with deep wonder and profound gratitude.

:13:58.:14:02.

Through war and hardship, through turmoil and change, your Majesty,

:14:03.:14:08.

today we rejoice with a way in which God's loving care has sustained you.

:14:09.:14:14.

As well as Prince Philip marking his 95th birthday today. Reflections on

:14:15.:14:21.

the passing of the year is written by 119-year-old comedy Paddington

:14:22.:14:25.

Bear creator Michael Bond, read by another 19-year-old Sir David

:14:26.:14:34.

Attenborough, used words written by the Queen's father. Truly, if you

:14:35.:14:38.

put your hand into the hand of God, that shall be to you better than

:14:39.:14:48.

light and safer than in own way. Members of different faith groups

:14:49.:14:52.

joined an act of thanksgiving, a reminder of how Britain has changed

:14:53.:14:56.

during the course of the Queen's rain. One feature that has remained

:14:57.:15:04.

constant and for that person on this day, the congregation sang the

:15:05.:15:07.

national anthem with more than usual feeling. The Queen left Saint Pauls,

:15:08.:15:20.

steadying herself on a specially installed handrail. At 90, a head of

:15:21.:15:27.

state at the beginning of three days marking this milestone.

:15:28.:15:33.

In other stories, police and Bangladesh

:15:34.:15:37.

militants following a series of attacks on minority

:15:38.:15:40.

On Friday, a Hindu monastery worker was hacked to death

:15:41.:15:43.

About 40 people, including secular bloggers, academics and members

:15:44.:15:46.

of religious minorities, have been killed in attacks

:15:47.:15:48.

An international aid convoy in Syria has delivered desperately needed aid

:15:49.:15:54.

to the Damascus suburb of Daraya, for the first time

:15:55.:15:56.

Trucks carrying medicine, food and flour have

:15:57.:16:02.

Daraya has witnessed some of the worst bombardment

:16:03.:16:06.

during the country's civil war, now in its sixth year.

:16:07.:16:12.

Scientists in Canada are reporting encouraging results

:16:13.:16:14.

for an aggressive treatment for the debilitating disease,

:16:15.:16:17.

The researchers describe in the medical journal, The Lancet,

:16:18.:16:22.

how they used chemotherapy to destroy a small group

:16:23.:16:25.

These were then rebuilt, using stem cells.

:16:26.:16:31.

About two million people worldwide suffer from MS.

:16:32.:16:41.

The 15th, and biggest, European Football Championship gets

:16:42.:16:43.

It all starts with the host nation France against Romania

:16:44.:16:47.

these pictures show the cloud arriving ahead of that big opening

:16:48.:17:02.

game. And unsurprisingly it is mostly French fans. Most seem to be

:17:03.:17:07.

in good spirits despite a very stringent security checks.

:17:08.:17:11.

A massive security operation is underway with the country

:17:12.:17:13.

More trouble with English fans down south.

:17:14.:17:33.

Yes, given everything that you have just said, the French authorities

:17:34.:17:36.

have got plenty to concern themselves with opt on the security

:17:37.:17:41.

front given everything that happened last year. Once again, some English

:17:42.:17:46.

fans are living up to very old stereotypes. Last night, just before

:17:47.:17:54.

midnight, we saw clashes between fans and French police. Tear gas was

:17:55.:17:59.

fired, we know two fans were arrested. Today, we understand a

:18:00.:18:04.

group of fans has been drinking in the area all day long and again we

:18:05.:18:08.

have had violent clashes between these English men and French riot

:18:09.:18:13.

police. We have got a whole lot of detail on what sparked the violence,

:18:14.:18:20.

or how many people were involved -- we don't have a lot of detail, but

:18:21.:18:26.

once again English fans are making headlines for the wrong reasons. I

:18:27.:18:29.

think there is particular frustration that given the huge

:18:30.:18:35.

efforts the bench security are taking -- French security, there are

:18:36.:18:41.

also having to focus on keeping an eye on a group of drunken

:18:42.:18:43.

Englishmen. And what is the industrial action

:18:44.:18:51.

that has paralysed in France at the moment, is that good to interrupt

:18:52.:18:54.

the tournament? It is a big question, certainly it

:18:55.:18:59.

has been at the front of political discussions today. It has been

:19:00.:19:05.

forcefully said that no French people should try to undermine what

:19:06.:19:10.

should be a successful celebration. Union leaders have said that they

:19:11.:19:15.

didn't pick the date of this tournament, there is a social

:19:16.:19:18.

movement going on and it shouldn't stop. But we are talking about

:19:19.:19:23.

potential large-scale disruption, rather than actual large-scale

:19:24.:19:26.

disruption. There has been a rolling rail strike going on for a number of

:19:27.:19:30.

weeks. That doesn't seem to be having a huge impact on rail

:19:31.:19:37.

services. It could affect fans get into certain games, but that doesn't

:19:38.:19:41.

appear to have manifested itself in a certain way. Although the

:19:42.:19:46.

Government has focused on those protests not getting in the way of

:19:47.:19:50.

the fans' experience, and some are suggesting that they may use this as

:19:51.:19:56.

a way of getting leverage with the government, at the moment that is

:19:57.:19:59.

more of a potential disruption that a real one.

:20:00.:20:05.

The online company Gawker Media has been fined. We are joined by our

:20:06.:20:21.

business corresponded to joined us from New York. The auction process

:20:22.:20:32.

has been filed. -- they are being auctioned off. They have decided

:20:33.:20:37.

that they are going to continue to fight this case. There is a bit of a

:20:38.:20:41.

legal loophole in which a judge has said that they will have to pay a

:20:42.:20:47.

$15 million bond. But bilingual chapter 11 allows them that some

:20:48.:20:50.

protections, at least from starting to pay some big chapter 11s in this

:20:51.:21:04.

case. Especially since Gawker Media have said that they are going to be

:21:05.:21:11.

fighting this case. If you listen to the CEO of Gawker Media, he is very

:21:12.:21:15.

confident that they will be able to win on the appeal. And when it comes

:21:16.:21:18.

to the value of this company, there is one bid of 100 million, is that

:21:19.:21:30.

an right price? The company that is now being rumoured to at least put

:21:31.:21:37.

in a bid for it, it is a company that has been struggling in the

:21:38.:21:40.

computer space. They were really good at computer magazines, they are

:21:41.:21:46.

no longer in that space because print is very difficult, so that

:21:47.:21:50.

could be a good acquisition for them.

:21:51.:21:52.

A BBC investigation has found young migrants,

:21:53.:21:54.

including teenagers, are resorting to prostitution

:21:55.:21:55.

The authorities say nearly 60,000 migrants are currently in Greece

:21:56.:21:59.

scattered in various camps across the Aegean islands

:22:00.:22:01.

They imagined Europe as a place where they would

:22:02.:22:09.

rebuild their lives, but the borders have closed

:22:10.:22:12.

and the nearly 60,000 migrants in Greece are stranded.

:22:13.:22:17.

The sanctuary they sought has become a dead end.

:22:18.:22:19.

In Athens, beyond the isolation of the camps,

:22:20.:22:25.

This park is in the centre of the city, where young men face

:22:26.:22:33.

choices they couldn't have imagined before starting their journey.

:22:34.:22:42.

Walk along the path and you discover a world of open drug use

:22:43.:22:45.

and male prostitution, a place of lawlessness where young

:22:46.:22:47.

migrants resort to selling sex for a few euros.

:22:48.:22:49.

His hope to reach Germany has vanished, but he needs 400 euros,

:22:50.:23:00.

around ?300, to pay the smugglers who will take him home.

:23:01.:23:08.

TRANSLATION: I have no other way to make money,

:23:09.:23:10.

so I have sex with old men here for five or 10 euros.

:23:11.:23:14.

How did you feel the first time you do it?

:23:15.:23:17.

TRANSLATION: I had never done this before.

:23:18.:23:19.

This may just look like rubbish, but if you look closely at these

:23:20.:23:30.

places, it is littered with used condoms, paper tissues, evidence

:23:31.:23:33.

The migrants and their clients don't go very far to conduct

:23:34.:23:37.

They just step into the bushes and do it right here.

:23:38.:23:42.

Young men are effectively trapped behind these railings,

:23:43.:23:44.

often lured by a stranger pretending to offer help.

:23:45.:23:51.

Somebody approaches them, they say to them, OK,

:23:52.:23:53.

I'm here, I can help you, or you can earn some money

:23:54.:23:56.

We saw teenagers waiting for clients in the park.

:23:57.:24:10.

Amir, an Afghan, who says he is 20 but looks much younger,

:24:11.:24:16.

has told us boys as young as 15 are selling themselves.

:24:17.:24:21.

Astonishingly, Amir said he was grateful to find all the men

:24:22.:24:23.

so he could earn money, but he's also scared and ashamed.

:24:24.:24:36.

TRANSLATION: I've thought of suicide several times,

:24:37.:24:38.

but then I think of my mother and the pain she would go through.

:24:39.:24:45.

So you now regret to have come to Europe?

:24:46.:24:48.

TRANSLATION: Yes, I'd rather be home with my family.

:24:49.:24:50.

Hopelessness has parked a mass movement of people into Europe.

:24:51.:24:52.

The closing of borders has created a desperation,

:24:53.:24:54.

which is pushing young men into a world

:24:55.:24:56.

Just before we leave you, let's take you back to France, to the Stade de

:24:57.:25:24.

France, the game between France and Firmino beginning in about an hour.

:25:25.:25:28.

A different story in the south, however. There was clashes between

:25:29.:25:40.

youths. Police fired tear gas. Hearing that English fans had been

:25:41.:25:46.

drinking all day long and had been involved in skirmishes all day long.

:25:47.:25:49.

A very different story here in Paris, there's the gaining of the

:25:50.:25:59.

euro 2016, police on the streets ensuring the safety of the players

:26:00.:26:01.

and the fans. Goodbye. Difficult to put detail on the

:26:02.:26:14.

weather as we will see a lot of

:26:15.:26:15.
