Donald Trump sacks his controversial campaign manager.
Corey Lewandowski was by Mr Trump's side from the start -
why was he dropped at such a critical point?
Authorities in Florida release details of conversations they had
with the Orlando gunman during his attack on a nightclub.
Also coming up, the UK parliament pays tribute to the MP Jo Cox,
who was killed in her constituency last week.
Just three days left before the UK votes to decide whether or not
The US Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, has dropped
Corey Lewandowski had been working for Mr Trump ever
since the wealthy New York developer began his White House
The exact reason for his departure isn't clear yet.
But a spokesman for Mr Trump's campaign said they were grateful
for his "hard work and dedication" and "wished him
The decision comes as Mr Trump faces strong resistance from senior
members in his own party over his strident tone
Let's get more from our correspondent in Washington,
What does this say about the direction the campaign is taking? On
the one hand, it is not unusual to have people that are very involved
in one phase of the campaign to have a lesser role when you move to a new
phase, which is the general election. It is a bit unusual for
this very abrupt notice that Corey Lewandowski has been fired as he was
so close to Donald Trump and he has come to his defence many times in
the past. But what we have seen is that as Donald Trump was trying to
make this transition from the primary is to the general election
where you have to court the party, get more donors, face Hilary Clinton
's world machine, this approach that Lewandowski was operating from was
not appropriate. He brought in advisers to help him make that shift
and there was a power struggle within the campaign that was making
it quite dysfunctional and then in the last week the campaign had a
really bad week. Trump made a number of statements that saw his figures
dropping the polls. His own family members are involved in the campaign
and they came to him and said you have to get rid of Corey Lewandowski
and focus on the new advisers that are going to get us through the
general election. It is the most public admission so far from Donald
Trump at his campaign was in trouble and that he is trying to move
towards a more conventional campaign. Briefly, tell us more
about Corey Lewandowski and his more memorable moments during his time
with Donald Trump. He has always been a controversial figure. Quite
an aggressive approach, at one point he was charged with mild battery for
grabbing onto a female correspondent, although those
charges were dropped later. He was able to push Donald Trump forward
but at the same time, he made a lot of enemies and he has just been on
television now defending himself. He said that he was proud of his work
in the primaries and achieving what I been achieved and he would still
be supporting Donald Trump and downplayed all the criticism and
speculation. He said this was a transition in the campaign and it
was natural for the focus to go elsewhere. Staying in the United
States. Transcripts of phone calls have been
released between police and the Orlando gunman Omar Mateen
who killed 49 people in a nightclub. Mateen spoke in Arabic and called
himself an Islamic soldier. The FBI said he had spoken
in a chilling, calm manner and appeared to have been
radicalised within together in its grief, more
information is coming to light about the horrific events that led to so
much loss of life at the nightclub. The night of the attack, it is now
known police were negotiating for nearly half an hour over three
different phone calls with the killer. Omar Mateen. The FBI has
released partial transcript of those calls. He identifies himself as an
Islamic soldier, saying America had to stop bombing Iraq and Syria. As
one battered one point, you says he has a suicide vest and threatens to
detonate explosives in a vehicle outside the club. Not releasing the
audio but I can tell you that while the killer made these murderous
statements, he did so in a chilling, calm and deliberate manner. The FBI
says it is still looking into the motives of the killer, including
issues surrounding his mental health, his own sexual orientation
and the means by which he may have been radicalised.
The husband and two young children of the murdered British MP, Jo Cox,
were invited to the British parliament on Monday to hear
tributes to her from a packed House of Commons, which had been recalled
On her empty seat on the famous green benches - two roses -
a red one representing the Labour party and a white one for her home
Our Deputy Political Editor, John Pienaar, was there.
Two roses - white for Yorkshire and Labour red either side.
For a single unforgettable hour, Parliament was no place
One young MP's shocking death had moved many.
With a rose on every chest, MPs high and low hoped that Jo Cox
would leave a better politics behind.
We need a kinder and gentler politics.
We all have a responsibility in this House and beyond not to whip up
David Cameron caught the mood, too.
Most politicians try to improve lives.
Jo Cox and her work for refugees had saved them.
A passionate and brilliant campaigner whose grit
and determination to fight for justice saw her time and time
again driving issues up the agenda and making people listen,
Quite simply, there are people on our planet today only
But it was the closest friends who hit home.
I remember worrying I had drunk too much wine earlier in the evening
when I remembered it was the boat that was swaying and not me!
To combat and guard against hatred, intolerance and injustice.
To serve others with dignity and love.
And that's the best way we can remember her and all she stood for.
Her constituency will go on to elect a new MP but no-one
And this was a loss felt across party lines.
A Conservative not widely thought of as soft-centred
Making common cause with a crusty old Tory, she and I became co-chairs
There was just one moment more political.
Another friend voiced what he believed would be Jo Cox's
feeling about the Ukip anti-mass-migration poster.
She would have responded with outrage and about the calculated
narrative of cynicism and despair that it represents,
because she understood that rhetoric has consequences.
And when insecurity, fear and anger are used to light a fuse,
Perhaps most moving, an MP who was another

After a pause in campaigning ahead of Thursday's EU referendum,
following the death of Jo Cox, both sides have been back out
Ukip leader, Nigel Farage, accused Prime Minister David Cameron
and Chancellor George Osborne of implying that there was a link
between the killing of the MP and the Leave campaign.
Mr Farage said there was a "clear implication" from their remarks
that the Leave campaign was responsible for creating
Here's our political correspondent Alex Forsyth.
A loss that left a country numb, an event so awful, it forced a pause
Both sides called for more respect, left venom.
But as the tributes keep coming, so too did the accusations.
The political truce set aside, with one figure claiming rivals
are making political capital out of tragedy.
The Remain camp are using awful circumstances to try to say
that the motives of one deranged, dangerous individual was similar
of half the country, perhaps more, who believe we should leave the EU.
Provoking reaction is no rare thing for Nigel Farage.
This, the poster about immigration that caused such controversy.
His latest accusations have been flatly denied by the Remain campaign
and called for some, the tone for those arguing
for Leave, for them to rethink and back Remain.
Unfortunately, those of us at the outset with that very clear,
inclusive, moderate vision for Brexit have, over
time, been taken over by a message which is
divisive, inward-looking, xenophobic.
Unfortunately, it is creating deep divide and hate on our streets.
The official Leave campaign maintains its message
Today, invoking past battles for Britain, making
the case of sovreignty with Second World War servicemen.
We welcome them, we would love to have a union but built
on a proper structure, not pencil pushers and
This is a very different fight from the ones these veterans knew
but the country's future is still on the line
and with so much at stake, Leave campaigners say it is no time
The public voicing their concerns and anxieties around not
being in control of our immigration policy, about the impact
of immigration on our public services and it is right that
politicians of the day find the right ways in which to
How does that make you feel when you are being accused
as a campaigner of sowing the seeds of division and hatred?
Well, that is not the situation or the position of Vote Leave.
We have been clear during this campaign in terms of the case
we have been making to the British public.
Our case is about democracy, taking back control,
when it comes to decision-making, away from those institutions
of the European Union and putting power back in the hands
The campaign teams know that with just a few days to go,
there is a limit to the impact facts and figures will have.
They are now appealing to emotion, to people's sense of national
identity, to what they see as the UK's place in the world
and that is why the tone is so important.
And as this turbulent campaign takes off again for its crucial,
final push, some fear of what has been said by both sides
would be forgotten, even after Thursday's vote.
British Prime Minister David Cameron has told the BBC he won't hold back
He insisted he'd fought a positive campaign, despite
On the campaign trail on Monday, he said he didn't want to wake up
on Friday having not warned people of the risks, as our Political
It's easier to get around when police motorbikes clear the way.
But the Prime Minister's path has not been as smooth
It's a race helped by some Labour faces.
Does he have any time he can repeat the mantras?
I think we put a very clear argument, a positive argument
There's nothing more positive than having a strong
economy and more jobs, and that's the heart of our case.
But has it been positive to tell pensioners they might
To say that the leader of so-called Islamic State would be happy
if we used our democratic right to leave?
I don't want to be the Prime Minister who wakes up on 24th June,
having not warned people of the risks of leaving
Do you think this debate has gone too far?
You've been calling colleagues liars.
Today we have Nigel Farage accusing you of using the terrible death
I would defend the points I've made about the Leave campaign's leaflets

He is not so keen to sell you a car but very keen to sell
you the single market, with this going from one factory,
to another, to another, and then going around the Continent.
The question you are being asked, stay or go, is not just
Even in the EU, we can't put a cap on immigration.
But we can make sure people are free to go and work in France, Germany,
Italy, and EU nationals are able to come and work here,
If people come here and can't support themselves, we can ask
But it is true to say if somebody doesn't break the law

I feel we have made a positive case for our country being in.
This last dash is for his future, too.
Every mile and every minute still matters.
This is about our future, our families' futures.
If we walk out of that exit door, there is no way back in.

The number of people displaced by conflict is at the highest level
So says the United Nations refugee agency.
In a report to mark World Refugee Day, the agency said
the total is now 65 million people - that's more than the
It's an increase of nearly six million in just one year.
And it means one in every 113 people on the planet is now either
displaced, a refugee or asylum seeker, with half
of all refugees children. In Iraq, the ongoing war
on the so-called Islamic State displaced nearly 3.5 million people.
The battle for Fallujah alone has made at least 80,000 people
Many of these civilians have ended up in camps that lack basic
necessities like drinking water, electricity and sewerage.
Several camps have been subject to disease outbreaks in the past
like measles and cholera due to poor hygiene conditions.
The BBC's Ahmed Maher visited one camp in Baghdad
We are here in a camp for internally displaced Iraqis in southern
Baghdad. They escaped fighting, escaped with their lives and they
ended up in such tents and camps and they suffering is continuing because
of the shortage of food supplies, ranking water and medicine. Today in
Iraq there are more than 3 million people who have been displaced from
their homes in four main provinces. This man has lost his home. He
sought refuge two years ago in this tent along with his wife and their
six children. TRANSLATION:
We used to have a big house and a farm, with cattle and sheep but now
we have nothing. This is our future. Who can live like this? The United

her house because of the war and at any time, anyone, you and I, we

The Russian born actor, Anton Yelchin, best known
for playing Chekov in the recent Star Trek films has been
killed in a freak accident at his home in Los Angeles.
Police say Yelchin, who was 27, became pinned against a wall
when his car rolled towards him on his steep driveway.
2015 was the "most dangerous year on record" for people
around the world trying to protect their land
That's the conclusion of a new report from the campaign
It says Brazil was particularly badly affected, with at least 50
people killed protecting forests and land from illegal
From the Amazon, Wyre Davies reports.
Brazil's indigenous tribes are as diverse as they are numerous.
One thing they have in common today, perhaps above all else,
is the relentless, insatiable pressure on their land
The Ka'apor people of the eastern Amazon are fewer
The jungle is their home, source of food and they have minimal
But their lives and lands are under constant threat.
"This is our land and we will fight to defend it,"
says village chief Osmar Ka'apor, as the tribal council meets
Since 2008, six Ka'apor leaders have been killed for trying
to protect their land from illegal loggers and miners.
For the Ka'apor, maintaining a traditional way of life,
living in and off the forest, is what their existence is all about.
They are prepared to defend this at all costs.
But it puts them in direct conflict with others from the outside,
who want access to the Amazon's precious resources as well.
More than 5000 square kilometres of the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest
80% of that is thought to be illegally cut and exported timber.
Brazil's environmental agencies are fighting back
but they are often up against powerful and corrupt
TRANSLATION: We are facing a situation of organised crime,
well structured and supported by people with money,
using poor people to do their dirty work.
A new report says that at least 50 environmental defenders,
indigenous leaders and rural campaigners, were murdered
The perpetrators are rarely, if ever, caught.
The men who shot Dona Marina's husband have never been arrested.
She says everyone knows who they are.
A broken cross marks where Raimundo fell.
The family have since fled their home and their land.
"My life has no value now. Nothing," says Dona Marina.
"My husband was threatened day and night but refused
"I wanted to stay where he died but my son would not let me."
While threats and intimidation have forced some communities
to give up the struggle, it is not an option for the Ka'apor.
Small in number, with their own language and traditions,
this is more than a fight for their land.
