Here in Paris, it is 0-0 in the Euro 2016 final between France and

:00:43.:00:56.

Portugal. The big headline in the first half is that Ronaldo had to go

:00:57.:00:58.

off with an injury. It's been three days

:00:59.:01:03.

since the killings of five Now the Police Chief of the city

:01:04.:01:06.

says he believes the main suspect This is 25-year-old Mica Johnson,

:01:07.:01:10.

accused of Thursday's shootings. Police chief David Brown says

:01:11.:01:18.

the military veteran, appeared to have practised

:01:19.:01:26.

detonating explosives. Police also

:01:27.:01:28.

say they are trying to decipher what the letters 'RB' mean -

:01:29.:01:31.

they were written in blood The killings follow the shootings

:01:32.:01:35.

of two black men by police officers. The first was this man -

:01:36.:01:41.

Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge The second - PhilAndo Castile -

:01:42.:01:44.

in St Paul, Minnesota Their deaths have sparked

:01:45.:01:51.

nationwide protests. While most have passed off

:01:52.:01:54.

peacefully, clashes in the states of Louisiana and Minnesota,

:01:55.:01:56.

where Sterling and Castile were killed, have resulted

:01:57.:01:59.

in the arrests of almost 200 people. Well, President Obama says

:02:00.:02:02.

he will visit Dallas on Tuesday. So let's go live to Dallas

:02:03.:02:06.

where we can speak to our What's and we know about the police

investigation into Mica Johnson? You are right, there have been more

:02:24.:02:27.

details coming out throughout the day here. Based on an interview that

:02:28.:02:32.

the police chief here, David Brown, gave to a local news network, the

:02:33.:02:40.

CNN news network. He said that there was evidence, based on the

:02:41.:02:44.

scrawlings that they found in Mica Johnson's Journal, and the amount of

:02:45.:02:49.

making material that was confiscated from his house, that he was planning

:02:50.:02:56.

a more carefully cut water related attack, a larger attack, one which

:02:57.:03:02.

chief Brown said could have had a devastating attack on the city. As

:03:03.:03:07.

part of a macabre footnote to the events of Thursday night, chief

:03:08.:03:12.

Brown revealed that this man, Mica Johnson, wrote the initials RB on

the police. It's been 24 hours of a mixed reactions across the United

:03:33.:03:39.

States. Some protests, whilst here, things have been peaceful and we've

had nothing but support for the police, borne out by the shrine

:03:45.:03:49.

behind me that is vested with flowers, toys and messages of

:03:50.:03:55.

support. Across the country, though, protests and violence, in some

:03:56.:03:59.

cases. From baton rouge in Louisiana, my colleague Laura Bicker

:04:00.:04:01.

sent this report. After a week of uneasy tension,

:04:02.:04:04.

on the streets of Baton Rouge, They arrested dozens of protesters,

:04:05.:04:07.

leading them away from the crowds. And the leader of the Black

:04:08.:04:16.

Lives Matter movement was taken into custody

:04:17.:04:29.

while broadcasting online. They have gathered outside

here at the moment. If your white mother or brother

was shot down with six shots well he was laying on the ground,

I promise you every single private school child, mother,

they are trying to heal and remember the five officers killed

by a black activist. Here, they know the gravity

:05:41.:05:43.

of the situation, but We are at a tipping point,

:05:44.:05:46.

and we could go either way. So it is important for us,

:05:47.:05:52.

as a nation, to figure out how we will not miss

:05:53.:06:03.

this moment. Most protests, like this one,

are peaceful show of strength. But in this climate it is hard

The UN Mission in South Sudan says it is outraged by the latest

:06:53.:06:55.

violence in the capital, Juba.

:06:56.:06:57.

It involves government soldiers of President Salva Kiir and forces

:06:58.:07:01.

The UN mission says it is concerned by reports that armed groups

:07:02.:07:06.

are preventing civilians from seeking protection.

:07:07.:07:07.

The UN Security council will hold and emergency session later.

:07:08.:07:09.

Here's BBC Africa editor, Mary Harper.

:07:10.:07:19.

The military spokesman for South Sudan's Vice President, Riek Machar,

:07:20.:07:27.

said his forces had gone back to war. He said they had no choice

:07:28.:07:33.

after President Salva Kiir's troops attacked Riek Machar's residence in

:07:34.:07:39.

the capital, Juba, in the early hours of Sunday morning. They also

:07:40.:07:44.

attacked a barracks where his troops are based. There were reports of

:07:45.:07:49.

hours of heavy fighting, with helicopter gunships attacking from

:07:50.:07:54.

the air. South Sudan's Minister blamed Riek Machar's troops. At Inge

violence by attacking a checkpoint. He said the situation was now calm.

:08:01.:08:06.

I call upon our citizens not to panic, but to go back to their

:08:07.:08:12.

homes, so that they stay there. The situation is normal and is under

:08:13.:08:18.

full control. United Nations Mission in South Sudan has described the

:08:19.:08:22.

resumption of violence as outrageous. Both of its compounds in

:08:23.:08:28.

Juba, where hundreds of displaced people live, have been hit by heavy

:08:29.:08:33.

weapons fire. It says it is concerned by reports that armed

:08:34.:08:35.

groups are preventing civilians from seeking protection. The UN

:08:36.:08:41.

Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon, says the violence is senseless and

:08:42.:08:46.

unacceptable. He has urged Salva Kiir and Riek Machar to urge their

:08:47.:08:52.

troops to disengage and withdraw to their bases, but South Sudan's

:08:53.:08:55.

leaders seem impervious to the suffering of their people, and tend

:08:56.:09:02.

to seek military solutions to the country's many problems. South Sudan

:09:03.:09:05.

are its fifth anniversary of independence on Saturday, but there

:09:06.:09:07.

was little to celebrate. Let's take a look at some

:09:08.:09:10.

other stories now. Japan's governing Liberal Democratic

of Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, is likely to win most

:09:19.:09:26.

of the 121 seats contested. If he achieves a two-thirds

:09:27.:09:28.

majority in the upper house, to match that in the lower house,

:09:29.:09:31.

Mr Abe could hold a referendum on amending Japan's

:09:32.:09:34.

pacifist constitution. At least two people are dead and 17

and army posts. The unrest was sparked

by the killing on Friday of a young, Here's our South Asia

Editor Jill McGivering. There was tight security

:10:25.:10:35.

across the Kashmir Valley on Sunday. But again, for a second

:10:36.:10:40.

day, violence erupted. Police used tear gas,

:10:41.:10:42.

but also opened fire on protesters. And angry young men

:10:43.:10:44.

defied restrictions They showed their anger by attacking

:10:45.:10:46.

checkpoints and pelting Many hospitals are

:10:47.:10:56.

overwhelmed with casualties. Many of the dead and injured

:10:57.:11:06.

suffered gunshot wounds. That has raised questions

:11:07.:11:08.

about the tactics used Especially the decision

:11:09.:11:10.

to shoot at the crowds. They are distressing

:11:11.:11:13.

scenes repeated many times On Saturday, tens of thousands of

:11:14.:11:22.

people shouted anti-India slogans. We want freedom, they cried,

:11:23.:11:32.

and, go back India. They gathered for the funeral

:11:33.:11:34.

of the iconic young militant who was shot dead by

:11:35.:11:39.

the security forces. In life, he called on fellow

:11:40.:11:43.

Kashmiris to take up arms Now his death is barking some

:11:44.:11:46.

of the worst violence Now, there's the little

:11:47.:11:54.

matter of a football It's the final of Euro 2016

:11:55.:12:05.

between France and Portugal. Ros Atkins is in the fan zone

:12:06.:12:08.

by the Eiffel Tower. And what do you make of the match?

:12:09.:12:22.

It has been a bit scrappy. The French have had the best of it.

:12:23.:12:26.

Ronaldo was injured in the first half and had to go off. Beyond that,

:12:27.:12:34.

even Stevens at half-time. Still 0-0 as we go into the second half. We

:12:35.:12:39.

are getting reports that tear gas was fired, from the other side of

:12:40.:12:45.

the big screen directly under the Eiffel Tower. We think this was

:12:46.:12:49.

because a group of young men tried to get into the fan zone after the

:12:50.:12:54.

authorities decided it was full. This fan zone is massive, that I

:12:55.:12:59.

have been here all afternoon and it started filling up fast. By 7:30pm,

:13:00.:13:05.

the authorities decided to shut it. Police started using tear gas on the

:13:06.:13:10.

frustrated people trying to get in. There have been over 90,000 people

:13:11.:13:15.

inside the fan zone, and I haven't seen any trouble. Everyone is

:13:16.:13:20.

getting on very well. This couple are on each side of the match today.

:13:21.:13:24.

Everyone is quite calm in here, aren't they? I think the French will

:13:25.:13:32.

win 2-1. Are people calm because they are confident that France are

:13:33.:13:37.

going to win? It is quite a strange atmosphere, buried pleasant with

:13:38.:13:42.

lots of fans mixing with each other. -- very pleasant. My English is bad.

:13:43.:13:57.

You are doing very well. We have not seen many Portuguese fans here. I

:13:58.:14:01.

have seen you, but not many others. Are there lots of Portuguese here?

:14:02.:14:11.

1- 04 Portugal. Thanks very much. Good to speak to you. The game could

:14:12.:14:18.

go into extra time and penalties, so we could be pushing on into

:14:19.:14:22.

midnight, although people behind me, the French people, will be hoping it

:14:23.:14:27.

gets wrapped up in 90 minutes. Despite having chances, France

:14:28.:14:31.

haven't managed to take the lead. We are approaching the halfway part of

:14:32.:14:37.

the second half. Most people are quite relaxed, but if we reach that

:14:38.:14:40.

point, they may start to get a little bit more tense.

:14:41.:14:44.

Andy Murray celebrates with the fans as he claims his second title

Less than a year after Jeremy Corbyn was elected, the Labour Party leader

:14:50.:14:57.

will face a leadership challenge tomorrow from the former Shadow

:14:58.:15:00.

Labour's ruling National Executive Committee will decide

:15:01.:15:05.

whether he must seek MPs' nominations to run again.

:15:06.:15:08.

Mr Corbyn says he is expecting to be on the ballot paper,

:15:09.:15:11.

and has suggested he would go to court should the NEC

:15:12.:15:19.

Despite losing a "no confidence" motion among Labour MPs,

:15:20.:15:22.

he is standing firm and asking party colleagues to respect the mandate

:15:23.:15:25.

If, at the end of the day, and election results in a different

:15:26.:15:49.

leader, then so be it, but I would be irresponsible if I walked away

:15:50.:15:54.

from a mandate I was given and a responsibility I was given. I ask

:15:55.:15:57.

colleagues to respect that as well. the gunman who killed five officers

:15:58.:16:03.

on Thursday had been planning Tensions continue in Baton Rouge,

:16:04.:16:10.

Louisiana, where protests taking to the streets have been met

:16:11.:16:19.

with dozens of arrests. Meanwhile community leaders

:16:20.:16:22.

are attempting to bring about dialogue to

:16:23.:16:23.

find a way through. Dr Joe Connelly is from

:16:24.:16:25.

the Baton Rouge Together organisation and pastor

:16:26.:16:31.

of the Wesley United He'll address the youth

:16:32.:16:32.

of Baton Rouge in a short while in attempts to

:16:33.:16:36.

heal community divisions. What do you make of the mood where

:16:37.:16:49.

you are at the moment? Right now, firstly, thank you for having us on

:16:50.:16:56.

your programme. Being together and outside, it's a great sense of

:16:57.:16:59.

excitement and hopefulness. The youth have said that throughout the

:17:00.:17:05.

protests and marches in our city, their voice hasn't been heard. This

:17:06.:17:11.

is a completely organised group of the youth, 18 and under, who

:17:12.:17:16.

organised this process. We are expecting over 800 here, and then we

:17:17.:17:21.

will march on to our state capital. It is a mood of excitement, joy and

:17:22.:17:30.

hope. This obviously comes during a very painful time for your town and

:17:31.:17:35.

your state. What has the reaction been after the two shootings of

:17:36.:17:40.

those two black men last week? We've had anger, we've had frustration,

:17:41.:17:47.

there have been over 150 arrests. But as far as Baton Rouge residents

:17:48.:17:54.

are concerned, we had 72 hours of protest in Baton Rouge without one

:17:55.:17:59.

single incident. Friday night is when it escalated. Tomorrow, there

:18:00.:18:06.

should be a higher escalation even. It is not just Baton Rouge. All

:18:07.:18:11.

across the United States, there is a sense of no more. People's emotions,

:18:12.:18:17.

what they have accept it and dealt with for generations, the younger

:18:18.:18:20.

generations are saying that they will not let it continue. Emotions

:18:21.:18:28.

have reached a boiling point. It has reached every city, Houston,

:18:29.:18:34.

Chicago, New York, New Jersey, at an rouge, New Orleans, Minnesota,

:18:35.:18:38.

California... It isn't just one pocket. There was a sense that

:18:39.:18:44.

people are fed up. You have spoken of a boiling point. Is there a

:18:45.:18:52.

danger of race riots here? I think we continue to press and emphasise

:18:53.:18:57.

peaceful protests. There are groups who have a different agenda than

:18:58.:19:04.

others, and there could be some potential things going forward. But

:19:05.:19:09.

as far as the faith community is concerned, we are pushing peaceful

:19:10.:19:13.

protests. I have had conversations with the district attorney and the

:19:14.:19:17.

governor, and the chief of police, they have all said it. It is your

:19:18.:19:22.

constitutional right to protest. We are just asking that you do it

:19:23.:19:27.

within the confines of the law. Thank you very much for being with

:19:28.:19:28.

us. A week of political paralysis

:19:29.:19:30.

in Australia seems to be over after the country's Prime Minister,

:19:31.:19:33.

Malcolm Turnbull, finally declared victory following

:19:34.:19:35.

a cliffhanger general election. Votes are still being counted,

:19:36.:19:38.

but his conservative National-Liberal coalition

:19:39.:19:40.

is expected to win Malcolm Turnbull said it was a great

:19:41.:19:43.

day after declaring victory His centre-right coalition hovered

:19:44.:19:51.

just short of a majority The question now is what sort

:19:52.:19:57.

of government will Mr Turnbull lead? The millionaire former merchant

:19:58.:20:05.

banker is confident he will win a slim majority in the lower

:20:06.:20:08.

house of Parliament. But if he doesn't,

:20:09.:20:12.

he will have to rely on minor Despite the uncertainty,

:20:13.:20:17.

he remains upbeat. But the most important people

:20:18.:20:25.

to thank are the Australian people because we have resolved this

:20:26.:20:31.

election, we have gone through this election with fiercely fought

:20:32.:20:35.

arguments, issues of policy, issues of principle, and we have done

:20:36.:20:38.

so peacefully and constructively. Counting is continuing

:20:39.:20:41.

in a handful of seats, where some candidates have been

:20:42.:20:44.

separated by less than ten votes. Earlier, the opposition

:20:45.:20:47.

leader Bill Shorten, a former trade unionist,

:20:48.:20:52.

had conceded defeat. He has promised to work

:20:53.:21:01.

with the Conservatives to find common ground and make

:21:02.:21:03.

the Parliament work. I understand that we have

:21:04.:21:05.

an opportunity here. The Australian people expect

:21:06.:21:07.

all sides of politics to work in the national interest,

:21:08.:21:09.

the interest of the people Despite these assurances,

:21:10.:21:11.

Mr Shorten has predicted the new government will be unstable

:21:12.:21:21.

and short-lived, and believes Australia will return

:21:22.:21:24.

to the polls within a year. The Prime Minister called this

:21:25.:21:27.

election promising stability, but it has in the short-term

:21:28.:21:29.

at least delivered anything but. What a net achievement -- what an

:21:30.:21:34.

achievement for Andy Murray today. As you've been hearing,

:21:35.:21:58.

the final of Euro 2016 between France and Portugal

:21:59.:22:00.

is into the second half in Paris. And Portugal are having to manage

:22:01.:22:03.

without their talismanic The Real Madrid man limped off

:22:04.:22:05.

injured in the first half. The match has been going

:22:06.:22:08.

for just over an hour. And as you can see,

:22:09.:22:14.

the latest score is 0-0. Andy Murray has won

:22:15.:22:17.

Wimbledon for a second time. The world number two beat

:22:18.:22:19.

Canadian Milos Raonic in three sets to clinch his second title at

:22:20.:22:26.

The All-England Club, Bearing the hopes of

:22:27.:22:28.

a nation, a feeling now The focus and expectation

:22:29.:22:32.

on him are unique but then he is no ordinary player,

:22:33.:22:35.

this is no ordinary match. Behind him were plenty

:22:36.:22:37.

of familiar faces. This is the first time Murray has

:22:38.:22:42.

faced anyone except the great Djokovic or Roger Federer

:22:43.:22:46.

in a grand slam final. Now time for Milos Raonic

:22:47.:22:50.

to make his presence felt. The Canadian has the most

:22:51.:22:52.

fearsome serve in tennis. To win, Murray would have to find

:22:53.:22:54.

a way to counter. He found that, taking

:22:55.:22:57.

the first set with a roar. Now, no letup, you saved

:22:58.:23:01.

his best for the moment The artistry on the backhand

:23:02.:23:03.

side from Andy Murray, The Milos Raonic serve would always

:23:04.:23:16.

be his most dangerous weapon that COMMENTATOR: The quickest serve

:23:17.:23:21.

of the tournament by far. The second set decided

:23:22.:23:31.

on the tie-break, the British number From a crowd that had expected

:23:32.:23:35.

so much, Murray demanding more. But here, as always,

:23:36.:23:42.

he was doing things his own way. On the game's greatest stage,

:23:43.:23:45.

Murray's moment came again. Wimbledon champion again,

:23:46.:23:47.

supreme performance, a first-class Few have ever felt expectation quite

:23:48.:23:50.

like Andy Murray, few have ever delivered like this

:23:51.:23:53.

Wimbledon champion. The most important one and for me
