The race for Ten Downing Street.

:00:11.:00:14.

We have a result in the first of a series of ballots to find

:00:15.:00:18.

Of the five candidates competing to take over from David Cameron -

:00:19.:00:22.

the clear winner in this first round is Theresa May.

:00:23.:00:24.

Liam Fox is placed last and withdraws.

An FBI investigation criticises Hillary Clinton for her "careless"

The Department of Justice makes the final decision on matters like this

:00:38.:00:48.

but we are expressing the view that no charges are appropriate in this

in the French security A report says there were multiple

failures before last year's The acclaimed Iranian film-maker

dies at the age of 76. Great Britain is one step closer to

:01:03.:01:04.

having a new prime minister. The British Home Secretary,

:01:05.:01:30.

Theresa May, has emerged with the most votes from the first

:01:31.:01:32.

round of the Conservative party leadership contest

:01:33.:01:35.

to succeed David Cameron. A former Defence Secretary,

:01:36.:01:37.

Liam Fox, was the first of the five hopefuls to be eliminated

:01:38.:01:39.

when the result of the ballot of Tory MPs was announced

:01:40.:01:42.

just under an hour ago. The MPs will hold more votes

:01:43.:01:44.

until there are just two candidates left,

:01:45.:01:47.

who will then be voted An overwhelming victory for the Home

:01:48.:02:04.

Secretary, Theresa May, with 165 votes. Well ahead of her nearest

:02:05.:02:10.

rival, Andrea Leadsom, the energy minister who campaigned hard for

:02:11.:02:15.

leaving the union with 66 votes. Just behind her, the Justice

:02:16.:02:19.

Secretary, Michael Gove, on 48 votes. He was also on the Out

:02:20.:02:25.

campaign. He put himself forward and pulled out of supporting Boris

:02:26.:02:30.

Johnson. Stephen Crabb is next on 34 votes. He was on the Remain side. In

:02:31.:02:35.

fifth place, Doctor Liam Fox, with just 16. He now drops out of the

:02:36.:02:41.

contest. And his supporters will have to choose where they go next.

:02:42.:02:48.

Laura Kuenssberg. That came in about half a narrow go live on the BBC.

:02:49.:02:54.

Commenting on those results, Theresa May has made a statement and said, I

:02:55.:02:58.

am pleased with this result and grateful to my colleagues for their

:02:59.:03:02.

support. There is a big job to do to unite the party and country. He

:03:03.:03:08.

says, I am the only candidate capable of delivering these things

:03:09.:03:11.

as a prime Minister and the only one capable of drawing support from the

:03:12.:03:16.

whole of the party. She says, I look forward to continuing the debate in

:03:17.:03:21.

Parliament and across the country. She has said she does not want a

:03:22.:03:25.

so-called coronation. She does want this to go to the membership. We

:03:26.:03:30.

will get more on this with our correspondent on this whole

:03:31.:03:37.

question. Let's catch up with the days news from around the world now.

:03:38.:03:42.

The FBI Director has presented his conclusions

:03:43.:03:44.

after a long investigation about the use of a private

:03:45.:03:46.

email and classified information by Hilary Clinton.

:03:47.:03:48.

James Comey said while they did not find clear evidence that Clinton

:03:49.:03:50.

intended to violate laws - there is evidence that she was

:03:51.:03:53.

careless with dealing with classified information.

:03:54.:03:55.

He criticized the security culture at the state department -

:03:56.:03:57.

but concluded there should be no prosecution.

:03:58.:04:05.

There is evidence of potential violations of the statute regarding

:04:06.:04:12.

classified information but our judgment is no reasonable prosecutor

:04:13.:04:17.

would bring such a case. Prosecutors way up a number of factors before

:04:18.:04:21.

deciding whether to bring charges. There are considerations like the

:04:22.:04:25.

strength of evidence, regarding intent, responsible decisions and

:04:26.:04:30.

the context of actions and how similar situations have been handled

:04:31.:04:35.

in the past. In looking back at this investigation into the mishandling,

:04:36.:04:40.

or removal of classified information, we cannot find a case

:04:41.:04:43.

that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts.

:04:44.:04:46.

However, Mr Comey did say Mrs Clinton had been extremely

:04:47.:04:49.

careless and that he'd referred the investigation to

:04:50.:04:51.

Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton, all

:04:52.:05:01.

her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of is

:05:02.:05:06.

about information, there is evidence they were extremely careless in

:05:07.:05:10.

handling very sensitive and highly classified information. For example,

:05:11.:05:16.

seven e-mail chains concerned matters which were classified at the

:05:17.:05:20.

top secret special access programme at the time they were sent and

:05:21.:05:24.

received. These chains involved Secretary Clinton sending e-mails

:05:25.:05:30.

about these matters and receiving e-mails about the same matters.

:05:31.:05:34.

There is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable

:05:35.:05:38.

person in Secretary Clinton's position or in the position of those

:05:39.:05:42.

with whom she was corresponding should have known that an

:05:43.:05:45.

unclassified system was no place for that conversation. The highest

:05:46.:05:59.

religious authorities in Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Iran have

:06:00.:06:05.

denounced the bombing. Four security officers were killed in the attack.

:06:06.:06:15.

This is one of the holiest sites of Islam, visited I millions of

:06:16.:06:19.

pilgrims every year. This mosque was crowded, but it was said the bomber

:06:20.:06:25.

detonated his device at a building nearby. At around the same time a

:06:26.:06:30.

second bomb struck at a mosque on the other side of the country. This

:06:31.:06:35.

area has a large Shia community in a nation dominated by Sunni Muslims.

:06:36.:06:39.

There were no reports of casualties. In part because many people were

:06:40.:06:44.

inside preparing to break the Ramadan fast. It was the third

:06:45.:06:49.

attack in Saudi Arabia in a single day. The first was here. The

:06:50.:06:55.

Interior Ministry said a suicide bomber blew himself up when

:06:56.:06:58.

approached by security guards near the US consulate. This attack are

:06:59.:07:04.

also died and two guards were slightly injured, according to the

:07:05.:07:08.

ministry statement. It coincided with the American Independence Day

:07:09.:07:12.

holiday and the consulate urged Americans to take extra cautions

:07:13.:07:14.

when travelling through Saudi Arabia. Nobody has yet claimed

:07:15.:07:20.

responsibility for the bombings. The pass two years have seen a string of

:07:21.:07:24.

attacks in Saudi Arabia by so-called Islamic State.

:07:25.:07:30.

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

:07:31.:07:40.

A shopping centre has been attacked in Baghdad. The governor has been

:07:41.:07:45.

critical of the checkpoints across the city and it is not clear if his

:07:46.:07:48.

resignation will be accepted. Teachers, doctors and nurses have

:07:49.:07:52.

gone on strike in Zimbabwe There is growing frustration

:07:53.:07:54.

at the deteriorating economic situation in Zimbabwe,

:07:55.:07:57.

caused partly by the country's worst Activists have called for a national

'shut down' starting on Wednesday. Dramatic pictures have emerged,

:08:00.:08:03.

of a freak storm in Cuba, which created powerful waterspouts,

:08:04.:08:06.

injuring 38 people. Reports say the waterspouts formed

:08:07.:08:14.

on Saturday evening, near a beach in the south

:08:15.:08:16.

of the country. More than 30 homes, offices

:08:17.:08:18.

and shops were damaged. The head of a French inquiry

:08:19.:08:21.

into last year's terrorist attacks in Paris has said that the events

:08:22.:08:24.

highlighted several flaws in the country's intelligence

:08:25.:08:27.

and security operations. The parliamentary inquiry said

:08:28.:08:30.

all the French attackers had been known to authorities,

:08:31.:08:32.

but that different, competing, agencies had not

:08:33.:08:34.

communicated with each other. After the casualty

:08:37.:08:45.

:08:46.:08:53.

of last year's terrorist attacks. TRANSLATION: Our intelligence

services have failed, I say it clearly, and nobody can

:09:01.:09:02.

pretend the contrary. All the terrorists,

:09:03.:09:05.

all of them, the Bataclan attackers,

:09:06.:09:08.

the Charlie Hebdo attackers, and the others, they were all known

in the commission's report was marked by confusion

:09:27.:09:37.

and uncoordination, where elite counterterrorism unit sat idle

:09:38.:09:40.

and general police were put in charge of special

forces on the ground. The same lack of coordination marked

the country's intelligence services,

:09:46.:09:47.

the commissioner said, with suspects left unmonitored and

:09:48.:09:54.

communication poor. What was needed, they said,

:09:55.:09:55.

was a new national agency. TRANSLATION: Because of this,

:09:56.:09:59.

I propose the creation of a counterterrorism agency directly

:10:00.:10:04.

safety blown apart by of hours and is still a long way

:11:02.:11:10.

from being repaired. Back to our top story. We have had

:11:11.:11:22.

numbers in the first ballot of voters in the Conservative

:11:23.:11:26.

leadership race. One MP has been eliminated. Theresa May winning the

:11:27.:11:31.

overall majority with more than half the parliamentary party. More

:11:32.:11:36.

reaction now from Ed Vaizey, who is supporting Michael Gove. Just to

:11:37.:11:41.

clarify for the international viewers, you supported the Remain

:11:42.:11:47.

and you supported Michael Gove, who was one of the Brexit cheerleaders.

:11:48.:11:53.

First of all, your response? Theresa May has more than half the

:11:54.:11:55.

parliamentary party. She has been the favoured since this contest was

:11:56.:12:00.

announced. She has been very well respected and a prominent

:12:01.:12:05.

politician. Michael Gove and the others to some extent are fighting

:12:06.:12:08.

for the other boats. I think Michael Gove has done very well. He has come

:12:09.:12:13.

in third place but it is neck and neck and win the person coming

:12:14.:12:18.

second and Michael Gove in third. There is everything to play for if

:12:19.:12:22.

you supported Michael Gove as I do to be the next British Prime

:12:23.:12:27.

Minister. Theresa May has said that she is the only person capable of

:12:28.:12:30.

during support from the whole of the party. Would it be more dignified,

:12:31.:12:35.

given what Michael Gove has done, for him to withdraw and unite around

:12:36.:12:38.

the clear favourite? The nation needs leadership of doesn't it? It

:12:39.:12:44.

does but I think what Theresa May has said is that it is important

:12:45.:12:48.

that we have a run-off between the last two candidates. As you know and

:12:49.:12:52.

your viewers might know it goes to the membership of the party, some

:12:53.:12:59.

130,000 people will get to vote. I think Theresa May and Michael Gove

:13:00.:13:01.

agree that there should be a debate because they have different visions

:13:02.:13:05.

of the future. Everybody understands the outcome of the Referendum, that

:13:06.:13:09.

Britain will be leaving the European Union. But there are other agendas

:13:10.:13:15.

about the future. Some of the issues for example behind the Referendum,

:13:16.:13:18.

the growing social divide where Michael Gove has proved in his

:13:19.:13:25.

record in reforming schools and Theresa May in reforming prisons,

:13:26.:13:28.

this is a high priority and it will appeal to Conservative MPs in the

:13:29.:13:32.

next ballot and also members if Michael can be one of the two. He is

:13:33.:13:38.

seen to have damaged his own standing in the party and the

:13:39.:13:41.

country by being seen to have stabbed his friend David Cameron in

:13:42.:13:45.

the back and stabbing Boris, effectively, as well. If he is

:13:46.:13:50.

pushed out in the next round and there is a run-off between Theresa

:13:51.:13:55.

May and Andrea Leadsom, where will his boats go? Who would you support?

:13:56.:14:00.

I do not expect Michael Gove to be pushed out in the next round and I

:14:01.:14:03.

am confident that he will be on the ballot as one of two people that

:14:04.:14:09.

people can choose from. I reject the idea that he stabbed David Cameron

:14:10.:14:13.

and Boris Johnson. He followed his principles. I campaigned to remain

:14:14.:14:17.

and David Cameron made it clear individual ministers were free to

:14:18.:14:21.

campaign on whatever side of the argument they felt was right. That

:14:22.:14:27.

is what Michael did. He proved in self as somebody who lost against

:14:28.:14:30.

Michael Gove and his team, he proved himself to be a resourceful and

:14:31.:14:37.

convincing campaigner. Very quickly, Liam Fox had 16 votes and presumably

:14:38.:14:40.

they will go to Andrea Leadsom and it will possibly tip that over and

:14:41.:14:46.

push Michael Gove into last place. That is very unlikely. I think a lot

:14:47.:14:50.

of them will go to Michael Gove and I think he has picked up support

:14:51.:14:54.

throughout. It was not started in the best way possible but you have

:14:55.:14:57.

seen a momentum building behind Michael Gove. We will have to leave

:14:58.:15:00.

it there. Thank you for joining us. Our political correspondent,

:15:01.:15:04.

Vicky Young, joins It has been a very interesting last

:15:05.:15:13.

hour. What are people saying to you here? Everybody is trying to guess

:15:14.:15:18.

how the numbers will fall. Liam Fox drops out. 16 votes. It is very hard

:15:19.:15:25.

to work out where they will go. I think you can assume with most of

:15:26.:15:29.

them they would go for somebody who backed Brexit. He was such a

:15:30.:15:34.

forthright and Pena for the UK leaving the European Union. --

:15:35.:15:40.

campaigner. Whether they go to Andrea Leadsom or Michael Gove I

:15:41.:15:43.

think it is impossible to tell. Some people think they will go to Andrea

:15:44.:15:48.

Letson and that will propel her into the top two. If you look at the

:15:49.:15:54.

percentages, yes, Theresa May has got 50% of Tory MPs supporting her

:15:55.:15:59.

in this all stop but it is not like other contests where it gets you

:16:00.:16:02.

over the line and you go through automatically. It is about Tory MPs

:16:03.:16:07.

whittling down a field of five down to the final two and they will then

:16:08.:16:11.

go onto the ballot paper and they will be voted on by party members

:16:12.:16:15.

who will be electing not only the leader of the party, but their prime

:16:16.:16:20.

minister. That is one of the crucial things in this race. This person

:16:21.:16:25.

will have to go straight in and become Prime Minister. No general

:16:26.:16:30.

election is required. That is why very many of Theresa May's backers

:16:31.:16:35.

are pointing to her experience. She has been in the Cabinet for several

:16:36.:16:37.

years and has been the longest serving Home Secretary for a long

:16:38.:16:42.

time and compare to Andrea Leadsom who has not been in the Cabinet, G

:16:43.:16:46.

has experience outside Westminster, many MPs say they do not think she

:16:47.:16:51.

is ready for the job yet. Just to clarify, we saw pictures of Andrea

:16:52.:16:56.

Leadsom. Apparently she did not perform well last night in front of

:16:57.:17:01.

MPs but she picked up quite a few boats. Is it possible we could still

:17:02.:17:06.

have a correlation? Theresa May said she wanted it to go to the

:17:07.:17:09.

membership and they are thought to be quite Eurosceptic in general. Is

:17:10.:17:15.

it possible pressure is building up for Theresa May to be given the job?

:17:16.:17:22.

I do not think that will happen. In the current climate, the

:17:23.:17:24.

Conservative party are split over Brexit. I think it is unlikely

:17:25.:17:30.

Theresa May would just be crowned and I think it would cause problems

:17:31.:17:33.

later, and quite a lot of resentment. Even MPs supporting

:17:34.:17:38.

Remain said they wanted a contest and they want it to be between

:17:39.:17:43.

Theresa May and somebody from the Brexit 's side. At this stage I

:17:44.:17:48.

cannot see that happening. Andrea Leadsom could creep a little bit

:17:49.:17:52.

closer in the next round. And her supporters are saying this is as

:17:53.:17:56.

much as Theresa May will get. She will not pick up any more. Even

:17:57.:18:00.

though there is a lot of pressure from outside, because some people

:18:01.:18:05.

have said we have voted to leave the European Union and we need to get on

:18:06.:18:08.

with it and start thinking about how to go through the process, at the

:18:09.:18:12.

moment I do not think the Conservative party fancies any kind

:18:13.:18:15.

of correlation. Thanks very much indeed. We will go to Washington. We

:18:16.:18:24.

have had a very interesting statement from the FBI on the

:18:25.:18:26.

investigation into Hillary Clinton's e-mails. Barbara Platt is in

:18:27.:18:33.

Washington. Bring us up to date. We have had an update from the White

:18:34.:18:39.

House as well. Yes, we have got reaction from the Clinton campaign

:18:40.:18:44.

and the Donald Trump campaign and the other Republicans. The Clinton

:18:45.:18:50.

campaign say they welcome it and they are glad it can be resolved.

:18:51.:18:54.

They said Hillary Clinton all along said she made a mistake and had

:18:55.:18:57.

apologised and would never do it again. They are hoping the fact that

:18:58.:19:02.

there is almost certainly no legal threats to her campaign means they

:19:03.:19:07.

can begin to put it behind them and get on with the rest of it. I think

:19:08.:19:12.

the response from Republicans show politically they will try and keep

:19:13.:19:16.

it alive. Donald Trump said that this is a rigged response,

:19:17.:19:21.

essentially saying that she is above the law. That's the evidence was

:19:22.:19:28.

damning and she was not, no charges were filed and other Republicans

:19:29.:19:31.

have said similar things. That'll be the line of attack. That's the

:19:32.:19:35.

Clintons play by different rules and they will try and keep it alive on

:19:36.:19:39.

the campaign trail. Thank Jubilant scenes at mission control
