This is BBC World News Today with me, Geeta Guru-Murthy.

:00:00.:00:08.

The man who some say led the UK out of the EU is now out

:00:09.:00:14.

Boris Johnson shocks the country, pulling out of the race to be

:00:15.:00:21.

the next British Prime Minister - its thought he didn't enough

:00:22.:00:23.

-- it is thought he did not have enough backing for the top job.

:00:24.:00:34.

Having consulted colleagues, I have concluded that

:00:35.:00:35.

Five people have put their names forward.

:00:36.:00:45.

Among them are Mr Johnson's former colleague in the Leave

:00:46.:00:48.

Another contender - UK Home Secretary Theresa May warns that

:00:49.:00:55.

Also coming up...The Governor of the Bank of England hints that

:00:56.:01:02.

interest rates in the UK are likely to be cut,

:01:03.:01:04.

caused by Brexit could weigh on economic prospects for some

:01:05.:01:08.

All this uncertainty, the three components together,

:01:09.:01:10.

has contributed to a form of economic post-traumatic

:01:11.:01:12.

stress disorder amongst households and businesses.

:01:13.:01:20.

of the Battle of the Somme, the centenary of the start

:01:21.:01:29.

In which more than 1 million people were wounded or killed.

:01:30.:01:39.

It's been another breathtaking day of drama for British politics.

:01:40.:01:41.

Who will lead the Conservative party - and the country?

:01:42.:01:51.

The most surprising in a day of astonishing twists and turns,

:01:52.:01:54.

the decision by the leading voice in the Leave campaign,

:01:55.:02:00.

Boris Johnson, to rule himself out of the race.

:02:01.:02:02.

He stunned a press conference by declaring the best person

:02:03.:02:04.

Having consulted colleagues and in view of the circumstances in

:02:05.:02:16.

Parliament, I have concluded that person cannot be me. My role Will

:02:17.:02:26.

Beatty give every possible support to the next Conservative

:02:27.:02:34.

administration, to make sure that we properly fulfil the mandate of the

:02:35.:02:40.

people and champion the agenda that I believe them. -- believe in.

:02:41.:02:46.

Boris Johnson had seemed one of the most likely successors

:02:47.:02:48.

to David Cameron, until a surprise move earlier today by his fellow

:02:49.:02:51.

Leave campaigner Michael Gove who said Mr Johnson

:02:52.:02:53.

wasn't up to the job and he himself would stand.

:02:54.:02:59.

The UK's Home Secretary Theresa May who campaigned

:03:00.:03:02.

to stay in the European Union also announced she would be

:03:03.:03:04.

I know I am not a showy politician, I don't gossip about people over

:03:05.:03:14.

lunch or go drinking in Parliament 's bars, I don't often wear my heart

:03:15.:03:19.

on my sleeve, I just get on with the job in front of me.

:03:20.:03:22.

Stephen Crabb, current Work and Pensions Secretary and a Remain

:03:23.:03:27.

campaigner, former defence secretary Liam Fox and Energy

:03:28.:03:29.

Minister Andrea Leadsom, both of whom campaigned

:03:30.:03:30.

Well as we said, one of the big surprises to come out

:03:31.:03:41.

of today was Justice Secretary and Leave campaigner, Michael Gove,

:03:42.:03:44.

throwing his hat in the ring for the conservative leadership.

:03:45.:03:46.

Many thought he would give his support to Boris Johnson.

:03:47.:03:48.

He sat down with the BBC's Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg,

:03:49.:03:51.

First of all, days ago, you were backing Boris Johnson, running his

:03:52.:04:06.

campaign. What changed your mind? I thought it was right, following the

:04:07.:04:09.

decision of the British people last week, we should have someone needing

:04:10.:04:13.

the Conservative Party and country who believed in the heart and soul

:04:14.:04:19.

that Britain was better off outside the EU. I thought Boris Johnson was

:04:20.:04:23.

someone who could ensure the government and follow the

:04:24.:04:26.

instructions of the British people, and build and ignite a team around

:04:27.:04:29.

him in order to lead the country forward. Boris is an amazing and

:04:30.:04:34.

impressive person but I have realised in the last few days that

:04:35.:04:39.

he is not capable of building that team and providing that unity. I

:04:40.:04:45.

came reluctantly but firmly to the conclusion that as someone who argue

:04:46.:04:48.

from the start that we should leave the EU and as someone who wanted to

:04:49.:04:53.

ensure a bold and positive vision for our future was implemented, that

:04:54.:04:58.

I had to stand for the leadership of the Conservative Party. What changed

:04:59.:05:01.

your mind? You've known Boris Johnson for a very long time. It

:05:02.:05:07.

can't be the case that you've only just realised his attributes and

:05:08.:05:11.

faults, or a lack of ability in certain areas? Here's a big

:05:12.:05:15.

character with great abilities, I enjoyed working with him during the

:05:16.:05:18.

referendum campaign. He brings great energy and enthusiasm but there is

:05:19.:05:23.

something special about leading a party and country, I had the

:05:24.:05:27.

opportunity in the last few days to assess whether or not Boris could

:05:28.:05:32.

lead that team and build that unity. I came reluctantly but firmly to the

:05:33.:05:37.

conclusion that while he has many talents and attributes, he was not

:05:38.:05:41.

capable of building that team. There were a number of people who said to

:05:42.:05:44.

me during the course of the week that it should be me. I reflected on

:05:45.:05:50.

those comments and on the individuals who made that case, and

:05:51.:05:56.

last night I came, as I say, with a degree of hesitation but ultimately

:05:57.:06:02.

believing this was absolutely the right thing to do, I came to the

:06:03.:06:06.

conclusion it was necessary to put myself forward. We need someone with

:06:07.:06:13.

experience at the highest reaches of government, and someone who believes

:06:14.:06:16.

in the British people's verdict that they delivered last week. We need

:06:17.:06:21.

someone who can appeal to and unite individuals who argued we should

:06:22.:06:25.

leave, and who also believed that we should remain in the EU. Already

:06:26.:06:30.

today, I've had support from colleagues across the spectrum, and

:06:31.:06:34.

indeed from outside of politics, confirming my belief that I was

:06:35.:06:37.

right to stand and offer myself up for election, and I leave it to my

:06:38.:06:43.

colleagues in the Conservative Party to make a judgment as to whether or

:06:44.:06:47.

not it is right I should lead. What kind of primaries to which you make,

:06:48.:06:51.

what are your priorities gritter mocha would be captain of a strong

:06:52.:06:55.

team, the first thing to recognise is that we have all of these talents

:06:56.:07:02.

-- priorities? . I want to lead a government in which people with wise

:07:03.:07:06.

heads and generous hearts work together in order to ensure the

:07:07.:07:11.

decision of the British people made on the EU is honoured. We had to

:07:12.:07:16.

take this country out of the EU and into the world, and restore

:07:17.:07:21.

Parliamentary control of our orders, taxes and laws. We had to build a

:07:22.:07:25.

more dynamic economy and fairer society. When people voted to leave

:07:26.:07:29.

the EU last week they were voting for change. There are far too many

:07:30.:07:34.

people in this country who felt that recent economic growth and renewed

:07:35.:07:37.

prosperity has not touched their lives. There are far too many people

:07:38.:07:42.

in this country who felt left behind and overlooked as the world moves

:07:43.:07:47.

forward at a faster pace. I want to govern for everyone in this country,

:07:48.:07:51.

heal and unite, and above all I want to ensure that Britain is a country

:07:52.:07:55.

that others look to with admiration because we are the home of

:07:56.:08:01.

admiration and creativity, and a warm and compassionate place that

:08:02.:08:05.

everyone is proud to call home. Michael Gove, thank you very much

:08:06.:08:06.

indeed. Two reasons, the first is a question

:08:07.:08:21.

of personality, some Conservative MPs perhaps thought that the former

:08:22.:08:25.

was too colourful and the electorate had had too much excitement for this

:08:26.:08:30.

year. The second reason is more ideological, some in the

:08:31.:08:35.

Conservative Party were committed to Britain leaving the EU and do not

:08:36.:08:38.

entirely trust Boris to go through with it. It throws up another point

:08:39.:08:43.

where a lot of people had said Boris Johnson was not that much of a

:08:44.:08:47.

Eurosceptic, he had thrown his lot in with Brexiteers to become

:08:48.:08:51.

primaries to and it has all come to this. It was a personal ambition,

:08:52.:08:58.

potentially at an end? Michael Gove, passionately Eurosceptic but liberal

:08:59.:09:05.

in his outlook in other areas? Absolutely but I think the problem

:09:06.:09:08.

Michael Gove will have is that yes, he is seen as a purist by those in

:09:09.:09:13.

the Conservative Party, does not like the EU, but on the other hand

:09:14.:09:20.

he was very much what you would call a love him or hate him politician,

:09:21.:09:25.

is seen as ideological by opponents. That, of course, present problems.

:09:26.:09:31.

Theresa May pointed out something many people have thought over the

:09:32.:09:35.

last few days, that politics is not a game, that is how it has failed to

:09:36.:09:43.

some of those who have been part of the Conservative Party over the last

:09:44.:09:48.

few days? Her pitch is, the men have messed it up. Time for a proper

:09:49.:09:53.

woman. She campaigned for remain but says that she is steady, no-frills,

:09:54.:09:59.

we had a bit of it there, reliable and knows what she's doing, we have

:10:00.:10:02.

two sort of a relationship with Europe and respond to those who

:10:03.:10:11.

voted for exit. That is what it will come down to, are the backers right

:10:12.:10:16.

in thinking the country has had enough excitement for the last year

:10:17.:10:21.

or so? Let me add one quick thing, bearing in mind what has happened

:10:22.:10:24.

over the last few weeks, it seems to be that as long as some winter is

:10:25.:10:31.

not defy the laws of physics and thermodynamics, it could always

:10:32.:10:35.

happen. -- something. It has been astonishing just today, never mind

:10:36.:10:39.

the last week. The Conservative Party is not the

:10:40.:10:44.

only one facing a leadership battle, Jeremy Corbyn is expecting to face a

:10:45.:10:46.

leadership The leader of Britain's main

:10:47.:10:48.

opposition Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn, is expected to face

:10:49.:10:54.

a leadership challenge after rejecting calls

:10:55.:10:56.

from many of his own MPs Our deputy political editor

:10:57.:10:59.

John Peinaar reports. Jeremy Corbyn's home is normally

:11:00.:11:01.

mobbed by the media. Today, as rival Cabinet Ministers

:11:02.:11:04.

jostled and bumped each other off in the power struggle for Britain,

:11:05.:11:07.

he set off in peace. No-one's even asking

:11:08.:11:10.

what Labour thinks anymore. First launching a plan to stamp out

:11:11.:11:11.

racism in the party, he upset critics by mentioning

:11:12.:11:16.

Israel and the so-called Islamic Our Jewish friends are no more

:11:17.:11:18.

responsible for the actions of Israel or the Netanyahu Government

:11:19.:11:22.

than our Muslim friends are for those various self-styled

:11:23.:11:24.

Islamic States or organisations. A pro-Corbyn activist who'd handed

:11:25.:11:27.

out a statement saying rebel MPs should be sacked as candidates

:11:28.:11:31.

turned on a Jewish MP for what he So you can see who's

:11:32.:11:34.

working hand-in-hand. The MP, Ruth Smeeth

:11:35.:11:38.

walked out in disgust. And under enormous pressure to stand

:11:39.:11:50.

down, facing an imminent leadership I am the leader of the party

:11:51.:11:55.

and I'm doing that. What do you say to those many

:11:56.:12:02.

members and most of your MPs who will never follow your

:12:03.:12:05.

leadership no matter what you say And is the break-up of the Labour

:12:06.:12:08.

Party a price worth paying I'm sorry, John,

:12:09.:12:12.

I am going to cut in. There will be plenty of time

:12:13.:12:17.

in the months ahead Mr Corbyn made a message

:12:18.:12:20.

to the Labour Party. He headed back to Westminster

:12:21.:12:26.

where his MPs are competing to see Mr Corbyn, is the break-up

:12:27.:12:32.

of your party a price worth paying? And where once loyal MPs are telling

:12:33.:12:37.

me privately they think he should stand down too to prevent a

:12:38.:12:40.

right-wing takeover. Jeremy Corbyn's left-wing

:12:41.:12:42.

faith goes back decades. New members helped elect him

:12:43.:12:45.

with far-left backing all hostile to most Labour MPs

:12:46.:12:50.

and behind his loyal hard core support who are determined

:12:51.:12:54.

he cut and won't give in. He absolutely has my support

:12:55.:12:57.

and the support of the majority I think he's a man who's shown

:12:58.:13:02.

immense courage and leadership this week as MPs have tried to take a

:13:03.:13:07.

coup out against him. I believe he is the right man

:13:08.:13:11.

to lead the Labour Party. Angela Eagle, a former

:13:12.:13:17.

Shadow Cabinet Minister's ready But Owen Smith fancies

:13:18.:13:23.

a challenge too. They are both holding back to decide

:13:24.:13:31.

which one has the best chance And there's another reason

:13:32.:13:34.

a challenge has been put on hold. Many MPs are becoming convinced

:13:35.:13:40.

Jeremy Corbyn's determination to fight on may be

:13:41.:13:42.

weakening under pressure. This morning, more than 500 Labour

:13:43.:13:45.

councillors joined the chorus There's talk of his trade

:13:46.:13:47.

union support softening. They say his base of support is

:13:48.:13:55.

strong enough to see off all-comers. The Governor of the Bank

:13:56.:14:04.

of England Mark Carney has signalled that interest rates

:14:05.:14:25.

could be cut over the summer. He warned that economic growth

:14:26.:14:27.

could be hit for some time Mr Carney said more cash might also

:14:28.:14:30.

need to be pumped into the economy. Here's our Business

:14:31.:14:35.

Editor Simon Jack. As the Vote Leave

:14:36.:14:36.

campaign punched the air in victory last week,

:14:37.:14:40.

?1.8 trillion was wiped off shares worldwide in a

:14:41.:14:43.

single day, the city and the country seemed rudderless.

:14:44.:14:45.

The Bank of England had described Brexit is the

:14:46.:14:47.

biggest risk to the economy and the governor had

:14:48.:14:49.

the economy and the governor had not changed his tune today.

:14:50.:14:54.

In my view, and I'm not prejudging the views of

:14:55.:14:57.

other independent members of the MPC, the economic outlook has

:14:58.:14:59.

deteriorated and some monetary policy easing will likely be

:15:00.:15:02.

That could mean lower interest rates, more

:15:03.:15:08.

money printing or both, to deal with a new economic reality.

:15:09.:15:10.

The material slowing in growth that the MPC had

:15:11.:15:13.

identified as a risk associated with the referendum now looks likely

:15:14.:15:16.

Out in the real economy there is some early

:15:17.:15:24.

One thing we have noticed is four potential

:15:25.:15:37.

contracts in the pipeline have pulled back,

:15:38.:15:39.

international client is

:15:40.:15:40.

looking to invest in the UK and until we know if Britain

:15:41.:15:42.

is in the single market or not they will be a

:15:43.:15:46.

period of uncertainties and that is unsettling

:15:47.:15:48.

for people looking to invest here, for jobs and

:15:49.:15:50.

That the biggest losers this week have been banks.

:15:51.:15:53.

HSBC and JP Morgan have warned jobs in the UK could go to Europe but to

:15:54.:15:57.

date the Barclays chief told the BBC that UK jobs were not under threat.

:15:58.:16:01.

We want to be involved in the capital markets globally.

:16:02.:16:03.

Right now the best way to do that is to be

:16:04.:16:06.

anchored in London and New York as we are.

:16:07.:16:16.

You might have to increase your presence in another location

:16:17.:16:18.

that does not necessarily mean you are decreasing your present here.

:16:19.:16:22.

This is not an economic crisis, this is very

:16:23.:16:27.

In the city, some financial markets have roared

:16:28.:16:34.

back, helped in part by the

:16:35.:16:36.

Governor's hint of an imminent interest rate cut.

:16:37.:16:37.

It is still early days in the post Brexit journey but

:16:38.:16:41.

today the Bank of England made it clear it thinks the sky has

:16:42.:16:44.

Now a look at some of the day's other news.

:16:45.:16:57.

The US has lifted its ban on transgender soldiers serving

:16:58.:16:59.

Transgender individuals will be allowed to enlist,

:17:00.:17:02.

and those already serving will no longer be forced to leave based

:17:03.:17:05.

The American Defence Secretary Ash Carter said the change

:17:06.:17:08.

was the "right right thing to do for our people and for the force".

:17:09.:17:15.

Our mission is to defend this country. We do not want barriers

:17:16.:17:23.

unrelated to a person-macro 's qualification to serve preventing

:17:24.:17:28.

asked from recruiting or retaining a soldier, sailor, or Marine who can

:17:29.:17:34.

best accomplish a mission -- person's. We want to be able to

:17:35.:17:41.

recruit the most highly qualified and to retain them.

:17:42.:17:44.

More now from Gary O'Donoghue who joins us from Washington.

:17:45.:17:47.

Has this been a real problem for the military? Is this a problem they

:17:48.:17:54.

have with a lot of individuals who are transgender coming up against

:17:55.:17:59.

previous rules of the military? Not so much a question of numbers,

:18:00.:18:02.

indeed numbers are actually quite small. These are estimates, that it

:18:03.:18:11.

is possibly something between 2500-7000 people in a force of 1.3

:18:12.:18:15.

million who will be transgender. Numbers are very small but there

:18:16.:18:19.

have been significant social changes in the US. Elsewhere these issues

:18:20.:18:25.

have come to the top of the agenda in many ways in civilian life, now

:18:26.:18:30.

the military has to confront them as well. This is implementing a

:18:31.:18:35.

decision made one year ago by the defence Department. They had been

:18:36.:18:39.

looking at it ever since, conducting studies. Surface chiefs asked for

:18:40.:18:45.

extra time for it to be implemented -- service. About one and a half

:18:46.:18:51.

months. As of today, you will be able to declare yourself as

:18:52.:18:54.

transgender in the military and it will not be a bar to promotion, and

:18:55.:18:59.

you will not be sent out of the military, sacked from the military

:19:00.:19:03.

for that any more. Over the next 12 months they will set out a bunch of

:19:04.:19:07.

guidance for doctors etc and a year from today you will be able to apply

:19:08.:19:14.

to join the US services, air force, army or navy, as a transgender

:19:15.:19:18.

individual, providing, this is a big providing, that you have been stable

:19:19.:19:24.

in your preferred gender for around 18 months and certified by a doctor.

:19:25.:19:31.

They are significant changes and it is the US military catching up with

:19:32.:19:36.

what is happening elsewhere in society. Gary O'Donoghue, thanks.

:19:37.:19:41.

Now a look at some of the day's other news.

:19:42.:19:43.

A Palestinian has stabbed to death a thirteen-year-old

:19:44.:19:45.

Israeli girl at her home in a West Bank settlement.

:19:46.:19:47.

The Israeli military says the Palestinian teenager

:19:48.:19:49.

from a nearby village broke into the house and injured

:19:50.:19:51.

a security guard before he was shot dead.

:19:52.:19:53.

Turkey says three men who carried out a deadly suicide attack

:19:54.:19:56.

on Istanbul's main airport were from Russia and

:19:57.:19:58.

the Central Asian republics of Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan.

:19:59.:20:00.

The Turkish government has blamed Islamic State militants

:20:01.:20:02.

for the assault on Tuesday, which killed more

:20:03.:20:04.

There has been a twin bomb attack on a convoy of buses transporting

:20:05.:20:20.

police cadets on the outskirts of Afghan capital, Kabul.

:20:21.:20:22.

At least 30 people have been killed and many more injured.

:20:23.:20:25.

The newly graduated police cadets were returning from a training

:20:26.:20:36.

centre when the suicide bombers struck. The first attacker was

:20:37.:20:41.

reportedly on foot when he detonated the device. As the convoy reached

:20:42.:20:45.

the outskirts of Kabul. People rushed to help the victims, but a

:20:46.:20:50.

second bomber drove a car full of explosives at them. TRANSLATION:

:20:51.:20:55.

When I got to be senile back you waited around 40-45 victims from the

:20:56.:21:01.

bus with other people there -- I got to be seen, I evacuated.

:21:02.:21:04.

My clothes were covered in blood so I went and changed. 2-mac civilians

But it's his stance on crime, which includes saying that suspected

Friday marks the centenary of the Battle of the Somme,

:22:15.:22:20.

a day that became the bloodiest in British military history,

:22:21.:22:22.

killing almost 20,000 allied soldiers.

:22:23.:22:23.

Many more sustained injuries that had never been seen

:22:24.:22:26.

before on such a scale, and returned home to a society that

:22:27.:22:28.

Sophie Raworth has been talking to a former British army captain

:22:29.:22:34.

who lost both legs in Afghanistan about how different life

:22:35.:22:37.

is for injured servicemen 100 years later.

:22:38.:22:42.

The 31-year-old, who stepped on an improvised explosive device

:22:43.:22:48.

in Helmand five years ago is hoping to go to the Paralympics and win

:22:49.:22:52.

His great grandfather served in World War I, rescuing injured

:22:53.:22:56.

I think I would find it incredibly difficult to even picture

:22:57.:23:04.

what it was that they went through back in 1916,

:23:05.:23:11.

1917, sitting in a trench filled with mud and dead bodies, rats,

:23:12.:23:14.

It is very hard for me to imagine just how

:23:15.:23:18.

100 years ago, the horror of war was compounded by the new weapons

:23:19.:23:24.

Tanks were deployed for the first time at the Somme, and machine guns

:23:25.:23:29.

The result was the largest number of casualties ever seen

:23:30.:23:37.

This was very high velocity weaponry, large blast injuries,

:23:38.:23:45.

So at the very heart of it, the wounds had changed.

:23:46.:23:49.

They were blowing great bits out of people.

:23:50.:23:56.

Around 40,000 soldiers returned home with missing limbs.

:23:57.:23:59.

For the first time, the medical world had to come up with ways

:24:00.:24:03.

of getting large numbers of amputees back into society.

:24:04.:24:05.

I can't imagine trying to go back and do the things I'm doing now

:24:06.:24:08.

And I look at this leg, and the only thing I could imagine

:24:09.:24:17.

The historical evidence is that people tried it

:24:18.:24:21.

for five or six years, and then really they went back home,

:24:22.:24:24.

or went into a Star and Garter home, and simply weren't able to function.

:24:25.:24:27.

And suddenly doctors had to deal with reconstructing the faces

:24:28.:24:29.

Many never overcame the psychological impact

:24:30.:24:34.

They are called hospital blues for the most obvious reasons.

:24:35.:24:37.

They are a suit that was issued to pretty much all the military

:24:38.:24:42.

It came to be something that but the public recognised,

:24:43.:24:48.

so that if out of the corner of your eye you caught blue,

:24:49.:24:51.

you knew immediately that there was somebody over

:24:52.:24:54.

there was a military casualties, and that really increases

:24:55.:24:56.

A century later, as Dave Henson prepares to compete on the world

:24:57.:25:04.

stage, that sense of isolation is far from his reality.

:25:05.:25:06.

This is something that has happened to me.

:25:07.:25:10.

I lost my legs, and there is an interesting story behind it.

:25:11.:25:13.

I am very proud of what I have done, and I'm so happy to share that

:25:14.:25:17.

with people and display that in the form of these war wounds

:25:18.:25:20.

I keep on show more less 99% of the time.

:25:21.:25:28.

That was former British army captain Dave Henson finishing that report.

:25:29.:25:31.

Another incredible day in British politics.

:25:32.:25:39.

The most prominent figure in Britain's campaign

:25:40.:25:41.

to leave the European Union, Boris Johnson, has ruled himself out

:25:42.:25:43.

of the race to succeed David Cameron as prime minister.

:25:44.:25:47.

The former mayor of London had been widely tipped for the post.

:25:48.:25:50.

He withdrew after his fellow Leave campaigner, Michael Gove,

:25:51.:25:52.

announced his own surprise bid for the leadership.

:25:53.:25:54.

The Home Secretary, Theresa May, has also entered the race.

:25:55.:25:56.

It is looking pretty unsettled on the weather front,

:25:57.:26:10.

quite a mixed bag on the way for the next few days.
