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

:00:00.:00:00.

France reels from another horrific attack

:00:07.:00:10.

An elderly priest in the city of Rouen is brutally murdered by two

:00:11.:00:17.

men armed with knives, who filmed the attack before

:00:18.:00:20.

Very, very gentle, kind priest, attentive to people.

:00:21.:00:28.

He wanted to be at the work until the end.

:00:29.:00:33.

He was helping the parish priest here.

:00:34.:00:36.

Police have made an arrest following the attack,

:00:37.:00:38.

in which several people were held hostage.

:00:39.:00:41.

President Hollande visited the scene.

:00:42.:00:46.

TRANSLATION: This group has declared war against us.

:00:47.:00:48.

We must face up to this war by all means.

:00:49.:00:52.

I'm Nick Bryant at the Democratic Party convention in Philadelphia,

:00:53.:00:55.

where Bill Clinton is due to speak later.

:00:56.:00:58.

Last night, Michelle Obama brought a degree of unity to a fractured

:00:59.:01:01.

party as she heaped praised on their Presidential candidate.

:01:02.:01:07.

Because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters, and all our sons

:01:08.:01:12.

and daughters, take for granted that a woman can be president

:01:13.:01:17.

The attacks keep coming, the horror is unimaginable.

:01:18.:01:43.

Foul attacks in the last two weeks alone in France or Germany, inspired

:01:44.:01:49.

by so-called Islamic State. Today an 84-year-old Catholic Priest

:01:50.:01:54.

was murdered in church. Two men armed with knives stormed

:01:55.:01:56.

into morning mass in the northern city of Rouen and took

:01:57.:01:59.

several people hostage. A nun who escaped says the attackers

:02:00.:02:01.

forced the priest to kneel The attackers were

:02:02.:02:04.

shot dead by police. This scene has become France's

:02:05.:02:07.

shorthand for horror. Today, the sirens were sounding

:02:08.:02:21.

for the dead and wounded of saying for an elderly priest and a handful

:02:22.:02:31.

of nuns and worshippers knifed during their morning service by two

:02:32.:02:36.

men claiming to wage Father Jacques Hamel was executed

:02:37.:02:39.

in this quiet local church. Reports say his throat was cut.

:02:40.:02:43.

He was 84 years old. His attackers shot dead by police

:02:44.:02:45.

as they stepped outside Jean-Claude had known

:02:46.:02:48.

Father Jacques for years. This was a peaceful town,

:02:49.:02:55.

he says, too small to be a target. TRANSLATION: I knew

:02:56.:02:58.

the priest personally. The nuns were my neighbours,

:02:59.:03:04.

and they would have lunch together next door.

:03:05.:03:07.

They were humble people. The priest was a good

:03:08.:03:11.

man, calm and friendly. Today, the line between president

:03:12.:03:16.

and public was thin. But this was an act designed

:03:17.:03:20.

to start a war, create division. An act the president linked

:03:21.:03:25.

to so-called Islamic State, TRANSLATION: The threat

:03:26.:03:30.

remains high, very high. This is what we've lived

:03:31.:03:35.

through over the past few days, We must face up to this war

:03:36.:03:37.

by all means, whilst respecting The far right leader Marine Le Pen

:03:38.:03:45.

has described it as another horror Less than two weeks after its last

:03:46.:03:51.

attack here, France is again faced with the problem of how

:03:52.:03:58.

to confront its jihadist threat. Police have raided a nearby flat

:03:59.:04:03.

amid reports that one of the attackers was a local man,

:04:04.:04:06.

who may have been wearing an electronic tag after trying

:04:07.:04:09.

to travel to Syria. But this is a national battle,

:04:10.:04:13.

for the things France values most - its freedoms,

:04:14.:04:17.

its lifestyle, its identity. Each time, France argues a little

:04:18.:04:23.

more over the cause of this menace and how to beat it,

:04:24.:04:26.

and each time, it happens again. With me now is Frederic

:04:27.:04:35.

Ischebeck-Baum, Intelligence and Security Analyst

:04:36.:04:37.

at King's College London. Just to let you know, President

:04:38.:04:49.

Hollande has just been speaking, and he said that the threat from Islamic

:04:50.:04:52.

militants has never been so great in France. Obviously, he has said

:04:53.:05:00.

before this is a war. But France is just not equipped to fight a war

:05:01.:05:04.

with the enemy in its midst, is it? With so many new migrants who have

:05:05.:05:08.

been welcomed into Europe I Angela Merkel, nobody knows who they are.

:05:09.:05:14.

Well, the migration and refugee issue is certainly flaring up again

:05:15.:05:19.

in the whole discussion. The thing as that now we know that one of the

:05:20.:05:25.

attackers from today happened to be known to the security services.

:05:26.:05:31.

Occasional failure is something quite natural, sadly, so people

:05:32.:05:34.

slipping through the net of security is something we cannot avoid.

:05:35.:05:39.

But we have no idea, with all the people who came in. I know some of

:05:40.:05:42.

these attacks are not being committed by new arrivals, but the

:05:43.:05:45.

fact is, people are going to be incredibly fearful and scared, and

:05:46.:05:49.

the rise of right-wing politics, we have seen it already, it is

:05:50.:05:52.

inevitable, isn't it, if the authorities got no answer key macro

:05:53.:05:55.

because these attacks are coming daily.

:05:56.:05:58.

Yes, indeed. I fear that we will see a shift to the right, obviously.

:05:59.:06:05.

Stemming from the public fear, as you say.

:06:06.:06:08.

Do you think, though, that the fact that each new attack is still,

:06:09.:06:16.

obviously, the horror is so bleak, that there is a risk of contagion?

:06:17.:06:20.

We have seen four in two weeks. What about the fear of the copycat, the

:06:21.:06:23.

fact that the media inevitably have to report this?

:06:24.:06:26.

Yes, this is clearly something we can observe. We can observe three

:06:27.:06:32.

things, I believe. The first is individuals who clearly have a

:06:33.:06:37.

well-established link with Islamic State, so they have people behind

:06:38.:06:40.

these attackers. Then you can see the lone wolves, as we know them,

:06:41.:06:47.

and then, there are also the typical copycats, so the issue I see here is

:06:48.:06:52.

that if someone, for example, who has no IS background, they can,

:06:53.:07:00.

before, during or shortly after the attack, most of the time shortly

:07:01.:07:03.

before they die, they can just declare that this happened to be in

:07:04.:07:07.

the name of IS, and this is what makes us deal with the attack.

:07:08.:07:10.

What are the responses you are hearing about? Germany is talking

:07:11.:07:14.

about some change now, isn't it? Well, there has to be some change,

:07:15.:07:21.

in modus operandi, as to how the intelligence of the two services

:07:22.:07:25.

operate, but again, as I said in the beginning, occasional failure, I

:07:26.:07:30.

would not want to call it failure, really, but occasional attacks that

:07:31.:07:35.

do happen... What about the talk of potential conscription in Germany

:07:36.:07:38.

and a new National Guard and so on? Well, in Germany right now,

:07:39.:07:43.

conscription is suspended, by the constitution. I haven't heard

:07:44.:07:47.

anything about re-enacting it yet, but people are talking about

:07:48.:07:52.

establishing something like the National Guard. These talks have

:07:53.:07:56.

happened in Berlin today. So we will see where things go. I fear, as I

:07:57.:07:59.

said before, that there will be a shift to the right.

:08:00.:08:02.

You think, briefly, that the media is playing a role in this? Yes. In

:08:03.:08:07.

what way? Should we be doing something different key macro

:08:08.:08:11.

terrorism needs publicity. Without publicity, without the media,

:08:12.:08:14.

terrorism fails to achieve its goal. So the best thing would be to cut

:08:15.:08:19.

off every media from them, but that is, of course, something we can't

:08:20.:08:21.

do. We will have to leave it there. I do

:08:22.:08:22.

very much. -- thank you very much. In the US, Hillary Clinton is due

:08:23.:08:26.

to be formally nominated in a few hours' time by the Democratic Party

:08:27.:08:29.

to be the first woman The traditional roll call

:08:30.:08:32.

of delegates could get feisty, unless Bernie Sanders has been

:08:33.:08:35.

persuaded to effectively And hoping to build on the unifying

:08:36.:08:37.

speech by Michelle Obama last night, this evening, appearing

:08:38.:08:43.

at the Convention for the first time as a political spouse,

:08:44.:08:46.

the former President, Bill Clinton. For more, let's cross

:08:47.:08:51.

to the BBC's Nick Bryant, Nick, it is extraordinary. I first

:08:52.:09:03.

saw Bill Clinton speak in the immediate aftermath of the Monica

:09:04.:09:07.

Lewinsky scandal, when his wife, of course, had been globally

:09:08.:09:10.

humiliated, and here he is coming to draw attention and proclaim his wife

:09:11.:09:15.

as a potential future leader. Yes, I covered that in Washington as

:09:16.:09:20.

well. What amazes me most is, I wrote my first Bill Clinton story

:09:21.:09:24.

almost 25 years ago! I am feeling like a veterans and night here in

:09:25.:09:29.

Philadelphia. I think we are seeing a different kind of Bill Clinton in

:09:30.:09:32.

this campaign. He doesn't quite have the energy, perhaps not the same

:09:33.:09:37.

magnetism, perhaps not the same sort of overpowering charisma that he has

:09:38.:09:41.

had in previous years. He made a remarkable speech in 2012 on behalf

:09:42.:09:46.

of Barack Obama, in Charlotte, North Carolina, where the Democrats last

:09:47.:09:49.

met. Can he do the things I? Big question. And then he repeat the

:09:50.:09:53.

success last night at Michelle Obama, talking about charisma and

:09:54.:09:58.

magnetism. She really did deliver an electrifying speech last night, as

:09:59.:09:59.

you can hear now. In this election, and every

:10:00.:10:02.

election, it is about who will have the power

:10:03.:10:04.

to shape our children for the next And I am here tonight because,

:10:05.:10:07.

in this election, there is only one person who I trust with

:10:08.:10:20.

that responsibility. Only one person who I believe

:10:21.:10:23.

is truly qualified to be President of the United States,

:10:24.:10:27.

and that is our friend, Some speech. Well, joining me here

:10:28.:10:42.

in Philadelphia is a long-time Hillary Clinton supporter, worked in

:10:43.:10:48.

the Bill Clinton White House, on the National Security Council, and also

:10:49.:10:50.

in Hillary Clinton's State Department. Daniel Farmer, welcome

:10:51.:10:55.

to the programme. When you heard those blues yesterday, as a

:10:56.:10:58.

long-term fan of Hillary Clinton, had it make you feel? I think the

:10:59.:11:02.

most important thing to note is, we saw last night a remarkable

:11:03.:11:06.

experience, where I think the perception that this is a party that

:11:07.:11:11.

does not, is not unified at this point, is way overblown. We saw over

:11:12.:11:14.

the course of the evening those blues being minimised to the point

:11:15.:11:17.

where you did not hear them at all any more. Most you saw laid out such

:11:18.:11:23.

a stark difference between what Democrats were laying out together,

:11:24.:11:27.

and unified, compared to the very frightening philosophy that Donald

:11:28.:11:31.

Trump and his supporters have laid out.

:11:32.:11:34.

A lot of Bernie Sanders supporters here clearly hate Hillary Clinton.

:11:35.:11:40.

Not just dislike, but hate her. And her public persona, a lot of people

:11:41.:11:43.

in the country at large, don't like her either. How does her public

:11:44.:11:47.

persona differed from the Hillary Clinton you know, and why is she

:11:48.:11:51.

having so much difficulty with this kind of likeability issue?

:11:52.:11:54.

First of all, this is a person that has endured just a barrage of

:11:55.:11:59.

attacks from 25 years, but my experience with her is, and that

:12:00.:12:06.

virtually anyone who has worked with her, is overwhelmingly positive, and

:12:07.:12:09.

the reason that we are all such passionate supporters. Not only are

:12:10.:12:12.

we so frightened by the prospect of a trump presidency, but we truly

:12:13.:12:17.

believe in this Hillary Clinton, the one that I know is extremely

:12:18.:12:21.

thoughtful, is a listener, is very analytic, is rigorous, is one, is

:12:22.:12:26.

funny, writes to my young daughters when they send very Christmas card,

:12:27.:12:29.

and they now believe, as Michelle Obama said last night, that they can

:12:30.:12:35.

do anything. Brings back a teddy bear from Afghanistan for them at

:12:36.:12:39.

some point. And one that I just trust her judgment and their

:12:40.:12:43.

analysis, anything that she would make a wonderful president. We have

:12:44.:12:46.

never seen a candidate this prepared before.

:12:47.:12:48.

So when you look at Hillary Clinton on the political stage, do you see a

:12:49.:12:52.

different person than the Hillary Clinton you see behind closed doors

:12:53.:12:55.

and on the diplomatic stage? We certainly saw on the diplomatic

:12:56.:13:01.

stage where her favourite abilities were very high, and the US stage and

:13:02.:13:06.

internationally, by the time you laptop is. She introduced America to

:13:07.:13:10.

the rest of the world again, extreme since her split, and built extremely

:13:11.:13:13.

successful relationships with the UK, Europe and elsewhere, and

:13:14.:13:16.

demonstrated this belief in partnership and doing these things

:13:17.:13:20.

together, not only domestic, but in our international partnerships, as

:13:21.:13:23.

we saw in Afghanistan, which I was responsible for, with a very strong

:13:24.:13:25.

and important support of the British others.

:13:26.:13:30.

So I see someone that I believe in, and I know has the experience and

:13:31.:13:33.

judgment to be a remarkable president.

:13:34.:13:36.

We will see how many people agree with you at the end of this

:13:37.:13:39.

convention, and indeed, at the end of this election. Many thanks.

:13:40.:13:43.

And with that, we handed back to London.

:13:44.:13:45.

In for another fun few hours! Thank you very much.

:13:46.:13:47.

Later today at the Democratic convention, we'll be hearing

:13:48.:13:49.

from the mothers of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

:13:50.:13:52.

They were two black men whose deaths at the hands of police sparked

:13:53.:13:55.

That whole question of all the tensions linked to race in the US

:13:56.:14:06.

have alarmed similar people across the country.

:14:07.:14:08.

Singer Michelle Williams sold millions of records around the world

:14:09.:14:10.

as part of the American group Destiny's Child in the

:14:11.:14:13.

More recently, she's been speaking out on racial tensions in the US,

:14:14.:14:17.

as result of a spate of shootings involving black men

:14:18.:14:19.

The BBC caught up with her on a trip to the UK and asked her how

:14:20.:14:24.

she reacted to the recent series of shootings.

:14:25.:14:27.

My reaction is still shock, hurt, questions.

:14:28.:14:33.

What were they thinking, the fear, and how

:14:34.:14:38.

Did you know that they were scared for their life?

:14:39.:14:43.

They don't know what's going on, and then you just shoot them

:14:44.:14:48.

because you have a gun in your hand and your hand's on the trigger

:14:49.:14:51.

and you think that's your only choice.

:14:52.:14:53.

Now, I don't know what goes on in the police academy, and

:14:54.:14:56.

I thank the amazing good police and authority that there is,

:14:57.:15:00.

because there is more good, I believe, than there is bad.

:15:01.:15:06.

Are you trained to get your gun first, or are you trying to

:15:07.:15:10.

Even just the other day, a man in Miami -

:15:11.:15:17.

I don't know if you saw - he's lying on the ground, his hands

:15:18.:15:20.

are actually up, he's saying, "I don't have a gun.

:15:21.:15:23.

And you still shot him! So it's like, man!

:15:24.:15:31.

When you're doing right, you still might get shot.

:15:32.:15:33.

And now, to think that every time a black man

:15:34.:15:41.

goes out of his house, he has to worry, what is he going

:15:42.:15:44.

to encounter today that might not end so well?

:15:45.:15:54.

What, because you're angry, you don't like

:15:55.:15:57.

them, you think I'm going to take justice into my own hands?

:15:58.:16:02.

Somebody got a phone call saying, can you come identify this body?

:16:03.:16:08.

No matter how you slice it, it's all wrong.

:16:09.:16:11.

Uniting with people different from you, actually being hands-on with

:16:12.:16:29.

people who are different from you always helps, so that you can no.

:16:30.:16:37.

Getting out there. Get in the hood. Singer Michelle Williams, speaking

:16:38.:16:38.

to the BBC. Police in Japan are questioning

:16:39.:16:39.

a 26-year-old man about the country's worst mass

:16:40.:16:42.

killing in generations. He's suspected of stabbing 19 people

:16:43.:16:43.

to death at a residential care home near Tokyo where he worked

:16:44.:16:48.

until February this year. Many more were injured.

:16:49.:16:51.

John Sudworth reports. This CCTV footage from outside

:16:52.:16:54.

the care home is thought to capture the moment late last night

:16:55.:16:58.

that the killer arrived, This morning, forensic teams

:16:59.:17:02.

began piecing together the elements of a crime

:17:03.:17:09.

that is beyond imagination. And Japan is a country

:17:10.:17:13.

in profound shock. In room after room,

:17:14.:17:18.

the victims were found Many had serious

:17:19.:17:20.

mental disabilities. The oldest of those

:17:21.:17:25.

killed was aged 70. Shortly afterwards, a former

:17:26.:17:28.

employee at the care home, 26-year-old Satoshi Uematsu,

:17:29.:17:37.

seen here in a Facebook photo, TRANSLATION: This wasn't

:17:38.:17:40.

an impulsive crime, where the suspect just blew up

:17:41.:17:48.

and grabbed a knife. He went in the dead of night,

:17:49.:17:50.

opened one door at a time, and stabbed sleeping people

:17:51.:17:53.

one at a time. Again, this footage is said

:17:54.:17:56.

to match the timings, and shortly afterwards,

:17:57.:18:01.

the alleged killer handed himself Uematsu had begun to publicly

:18:02.:18:04.

express his disturbing view that disabled people, unable to live

:18:05.:18:14.

independent lives, should be killed, and in February this year,

:18:15.:18:18.

his employment came to an end after he wrote

:18:19.:18:21.

to the national parliament. The letter, pictures of which have

:18:22.:18:26.

been broadcast today, was enough to prompt the authorities

:18:27.:18:29.

to act, and Uematsu was detained But, just two weeks later,

:18:30.:18:33.

he was released, returning to live in this house a short

:18:34.:18:39.

distance from the care home. TRANSLATION: When I worked there,

the staff and tenants Amid the grief, the debate

:18:43.:18:47.

is already turning to whether more Now a look at some of

:18:48.:18:55.

the day's other news. There have been two car bomb attacks

:18:56.:19:04.

at the main entrance to the airport in the Somali capital,

:19:05.:19:08.

Mogadishu. Bursts of gunfire have

:19:09.:19:10.

been heard at the scene. At least 12 people are believed

:19:11.:19:12.

to be dead, many of them The Islamist group Al Shabaab says

:19:13.:19:15.

that it carried out the attack. Canoeing is the latest

sport to ban some Russian The president of South Sudan has

:19:22.:19:31.

sacked his long-standing rival, the opposition leader, and replaced him

:19:32.:19:36.

as first vice president with the former mining minister. He fled the

:19:37.:19:42.

capital at Cawood Juba earlier this month, after fighting between his

:19:43.:19:46.

forces and those loyal to the president left hundreds dead.

:19:47.:19:49.

The Bangladeshi prime minister Sheikh Hasina says a swift operation

:19:50.:19:52.

against suspected Islamist militants has saved the country

:19:53.:19:54.

from what she called "a terrible situation".

:19:55.:19:55.

Her comments came after police said they killed nine Islamists

:19:56.:19:58.

at their hideout in the capital Dhaka.

:19:59.:20:00.

It is not yet clear which group the men belonged to.

:20:01.:20:04.

From the capital, Anbarasan Ethirajan.

:20:05.:20:07.

It's hard to imagine that suspected Islamists were living in a quiet

:20:08.:20:10.

residential area like this one here in Dhaka.

:20:11.:20:12.

It is hard for the police officers to bring in vehicles through these

:20:13.:20:17.

They say they started this operation earlier in the morning,

:20:18.:20:23.

The militants were living on the fifth floor of an apartment

:20:24.:20:28.

at the end of this road, and the fighting started as when one

:20:29.:20:35.

at the end of this road, and the fighting started as and when one

:20:36.:20:38.

of the gunmen threw a bomb on the police officers.

:20:39.:20:40.

Residents here talk about several hours of gunfights

:20:41.:20:42.

Nine Islamist militants have been killed.

:20:43.:20:45.

Bangladesh has been on high alert since the attack on a cafe

:20:46.:20:49.

in Dhaka earlier this month, in which more than 20

:20:50.:20:51.

people were killed, most of them foreigners.

:20:52.:20:55.

Police here suspect that dozens of young men could have been

:20:56.:20:58.

radicalised, and they could be living in a residential area

:20:59.:21:01.

like this one here in Dakar, and also, in other parts

:21:02.:21:04.

The celebrated Egyptian film director Mohamed Khan has

:21:05.:21:14.

died at the age of 73 after a prolific career.

:21:15.:21:17.

Khan has been one of Egypt's leading cinematic figures since the 1980s,

:21:18.:21:21.

making a string of movies tackling social issues.

:21:22.:21:24.

Soumer Daghastani looks back at his life and career.

:21:25.:21:27.

Acclaimed by the critics and the public alike,

:21:28.:21:33.

Khan was one of Egypt's leading cinematic figures

:21:34.:21:37.

A British national, born to an Egyptian mother

:21:38.:21:44.

and a Pakistani father in Cairo in 1942, his directing

:21:45.:21:49.

He was one of the founders of Egypt's neorealism cinema movement.

:21:50.:21:58.

He led the way in taking the cameras out in the city,

:21:59.:22:04.

shooting most of his films on the streets of

:22:05.:22:06.

His 24 films always focused on the lives of ordinary

:22:07.:22:14.

In many of them, he portrayed the hardships faced by women.

:22:15.:22:22.

One of his most memorable films, The Wife of an Important Man,

:22:23.:22:33.

Khan tells the story of a woman married to a brutal police

:22:34.:22:40.

officer involved in the repression of opponents

:22:41.:22:44.

Despite being widely celebrated as a great figure

:22:45.:22:49.

in Egyptian and Arab cinema, Egypt only granted Khan

:22:50.:22:53.

nationality in 2014, after a presidential decree.

:22:54.:22:59.

His death has left Egyptian cinema bereft of one of its biggest names,

:23:00.:23:06.

The first solar-powered round the world flight

:23:07.:23:17.

The Solar Impulse 2 aircraft has flown 26,000 miles using only

:23:18.:23:23.

It landed in Abu Dhabi in the early hours of this morning, at the end

:23:24.:23:29.

Just to warn you, there is some flash photography

:23:30.:23:32.

Arriving to great fanfare, the smooth and controlled touchdown

:23:33.:23:42.

bringing an end to what's been a remarkable and record-breaking

:23:43.:23:44.

Solar Impulse 2 is the brainchild of Bertrand Picard, who

:23:45.:23:51.

was piloting the plane for the final time.

:23:52.:23:54.

Everything is possible. Why don't we dream more?

:23:55.:23:59.

And when I touch my wheels here, I thought, OK.

:24:00.:24:06.

The aircraft has the wingspan of a jumbo jet,

:24:07.:24:12.

Using the sun's rays, it's powered by 17,000 solar cells,

:24:13.:24:19.

peppered all over the wings, which drive four electric motors.

:24:20.:24:23.

Its mission, to promote renewable energy.

:24:24.:24:26.

The aircraft set off from Abu Dhabi on the 9th of March last year,

:24:27.:24:30.

heading for the Persian Gulf, then across India, China, America,

:24:31.:24:34.

and lastly Europe, before returning to the Emirates this morning.

:24:35.:24:40.

The fifth leg of its journey, from Burma

:24:41.:24:42.

to China, was deemed to be one of the trickiest

:24:43.:24:44.

by the pilot and his compatriot, Andre Borschberg,

:24:45.:24:47.

Today, it is the flight to China, Chongqing.

:24:48.:24:52.

If everything goes well all day, we continue tomorrow

:24:53.:24:56.

morning with Solar Impulse, to bring into Nanjing.

:24:57.:25:00.

For the team behind this wonder plane, a chance

:25:01.:25:04.

now to reflect and consider that maybe, one day in the not-so-distant

:25:05.:25:09.

future, passenger planes could become a lot greener and cleaner.

:25:10.:25:18.

And there's just time for one last, tall story.

:25:19.:25:22.

When it comes to height, it seems Dutch men tower

:25:23.:25:24.

New research shows the average Dutchman is now 183

:25:25.:25:30.

But to find the tallest women, you need to travel further east

:25:31.:25:35.

in Europe and make your way to Latvia.

:25:36.:25:37.

There women, on average, are 170 centimetres tall.

:25:38.:25:39.

The research, published in the journal eLife,

:25:40.:25:42.

has tracked growth trends in 187 countries since 1914.

:25:43.:25:52.

I wonder if there is a secret, has someone somewhat vertically

:25:53.:26:00.

challenged! If you know the secret to having tall children, let me

:26:01.:26:01.

know. See you soon. It certainly looks as though we will

:26:02.:26:10.

see some rain in the forecast over the next couple of days. In fact,

:26:11.:26:15.

once you wake up on Wednesday, you could start the day

:26:16.:26:16.
