Reporting from Washington, I'm Jane O'Brien.

The headlines: Another blow for the Paralympics -

:00:14.:00:15.

Team Russia won't be competing after losing an appeal

:00:16.:00:18.

against a ban imposed for state-sponsored doping.

:00:19.:00:21.

A new study says women who have children may be paid

:00:22.:00:24.

up to a third less than men for the same job.

:00:25.:00:26.

We examine the impact of the gender gap.

:00:27.:00:30.

across the Syrian border, against Islamic State militants

:00:31.:00:33.

as some residents on the Turkish side are told to leave their homes.

:00:34.:00:38.

And how one father's love is taking his son to new heights.

:00:39.:00:43.

Meet Wil - the flying boy who's raising awareness of Down Syndrome.

:00:44.:01:00.

Russia's Paralympians have had their last hope

:01:01.:01:02.

The Court of Arbitration of Sport has rejected a Russian appeal

:01:03.:01:10.

against a blanket ban imposed earlier this month

:01:11.:01:11.

by the International Paralympic Committee,

:01:12.:01:13.

which condemned Russia's state- sanctioned doping of athletes.

:01:14.:01:16.

But the acting head of the Russian anti-doping agency has told the BBC

:01:17.:01:20.

that clean athletes should be allowed to compete.

:01:21.:01:26.

We are trying to prove to the world that we are changing.

:01:27.:01:35.

We provided access to our doctor to the British anti-doping agency.

:01:36.:01:37.

But I think that doping is not only a Russian problem.

:01:38.:01:41.

And all other countries, not all, but many, have

:01:42.:01:43.

That's why Russian clean athletes should not be

:01:44.:01:46.

deprived of their right to participate in Rio.

:01:47.:01:52.

Craig Spence from the International Paralympic Committee

:01:53.:01:54.

their exclusion from the games. should blame the Russian state for

:01:55.:02:05.

I think the IPC was very clear on the 7th of August

:02:06.:02:08.

that our decision here was not about individual athletes

:02:09.:02:10.

It was a state-sponsored doping system that was

:02:11.:02:13.

And with the state-sponsored doping system which exists in Russian

:02:14.:02:16.

sport, which has been found now in two independent Wada reports,

:02:17.:02:19.

we have no confidence on which Russian athletes are clean

:02:20.:02:22.

And therefore, we have held our member, the Russian

:02:23.:02:28.

Paralympic Committee, accountable for not

:02:29.:02:30.

fulfilling its membership obligations with regard

:02:31.:02:32.

That's why we have taken this action that we have.

:02:33.:02:42.

To get an idea of how central the Russian team is

:02:43.:02:45.

to the Paralympics, take a look at

:02:46.:02:47.

You can see that Russia finished second with 36 golds

:02:48.:02:53.

and a total medal count of 102.

:02:54.:02:58.

Our sports presenter Will Perry joins us now

:02:59.:03:00.

just what is is going to do to the Paralympics in Rio? Even just from

:03:01.:03:14.

looking at bad medal table, it will have a huge impact on the medals

:03:15.:03:18.

that will be dished out in Rio. The International Olympic Committee will

:03:19.:03:23.

want it to have an enormous impact, a strong statement today, when you

:03:24.:03:27.

look at the words coming out of the IOC and their president, Sir Philip

:03:28.:03:32.

Craven, who described the Russian anti-doping system is broken,

:03:33.:03:36.

corrupted and entirely compromise. He said it puts medals over morals.

:03:37.:03:42.

He went on to say that he is greatly encouraged by the decision from the

:03:43.:03:46.

Court of Arbitration for Sport to uphold that choice, that decision,

:03:47.:03:52.

today. A new beginning, a catalyst for change in Russia, Craven has

:03:53.:03:56.

talked about. And the McLaren report, this goes back to July, a

:03:57.:04:02.

detail of a Russian state-sponsored doping programme, and in that report

:04:03.:04:05.

that said that Russian Hafeez benefited from the "Disappearing or

:04:06.:04:10.

positive methodology work", where positive tests had gone missing and

:04:11.:04:19.

this was the case in the Winter Olympics in Michael Moore three in

:04:20.:04:23.

2000 protein. This is a big global story with only two weeks to go

:04:24.:04:27.

until the Paralympics get underway in Rio. We don't know if only

:04:28.:04:33.

athletes have been cheating. There must be some clean athletes in

:04:34.:04:36.

there. What effect does this have on them, because they have been

:04:37.:04:39.

training for this although their lives? You must feel when you talk

:04:40.:04:47.

about five-year cycles, with the Paralympics, it was a regular cycles

:04:48.:04:51.

for the athletes. Lots of these athletes did not even know these

:04:52.:04:55.

decisions were being made today. Sir Philip Craven said that it is not a

:04:56.:04:59.

day for celebration. They have enormous sympathy for the Russian

:05:00.:05:02.

athletes who will miss out. But with two weeks to go, you have dreams

:05:03.:05:07.

being crushed. And there's a question of human rights. But the

:05:08.:05:12.

Russian sports minister says that the ban was political, not with any

:05:13.:05:18.

legal framework. An eight time Russian Paralympic champion

:05:19.:05:23.

yesterday said that the mood was great, everything seemed positive,

:05:24.:05:25.

everyone thought that things were going well and that our guys would

:05:26.:05:30.

finally go to Rio. Many received their equipment yesterday and now

:05:31.:05:33.

there's the decision which they describe as absolutely shocking.

:05:34.:05:41.

Another 16 Paralympic champion from Russia said that they have been

:05:42.:05:46.

trodden to pieces and have simply had humiliation.

:05:47.:05:51.

Women who have children can be paid up to a third less than men

:05:52.:05:54.

That's according to new figures from the Institute for Fiscal Studies.

:05:55.:05:59.

While the gender pay gap has generally been

:06:00.:06:01.

falling in recent years, the study found that

:06:02.:06:06.

mothers who take time out, or work fewer hours,

:06:07.:06:08.

significantly miss out on wage increases.

:06:09.:06:10.

Our Economics Editor Kamal Ahmed reports.

:06:11.:06:19.

The ups and major downs of the gender wage gap.

:06:20.:06:22.

Yes, it has been reducing over all, but for mothers

:06:23.:06:24.

and graduates there is still a significant pay penalty.

:06:25.:06:26.

In this London park opinions were clear.

:06:27.:06:28.

Having children presented major career challenges, ones that men

:06:29.:06:31.

Women struggle with the issue of having to

:06:32.:06:39.

be perfect mothers at home and then having to be

:06:40.:06:41.

I have taken a pay cut because I changed my career

:06:42.:06:45.

So, I don't think that's a gender issue.

:06:46.:06:48.

The gender wage gap has been declining.

:06:49.:06:54.

In 1993 there was a 28% difference in the hourly income

:06:55.:06:57.

But there are significant variations.

:06:58.:07:02.

For mothers the wage gap grows to 33% by the

:07:03.:07:06.

time the first child reaches 12 years old.

:07:07.:07:11.

What happens when women reduce their hours of paid work,

:07:12.:07:14.

for whatever reason at that point a lot of them

:07:15.:07:16.

find that wage progression shuts down.

:07:17.:07:18.

That could be because they're genuinely not gathering the skills

:07:19.:07:21.

and experience that employers value in their jobs.

:07:22.:07:24.

It could be something to do with a form of discrimination

:07:25.:07:29.

or power that employers are exercising over those women

:07:30.:07:31.

She is showing them the correct way to polish.

:07:32.:07:41.

The workplace has certainly changed since the 1940s.

:07:42.:07:43.

But the persistent wage gap is still with us.

:07:44.:07:45.

Before a family arrives there is already a

:07:46.:07:47.

Some people argue at least part of the

:07:48.:07:50.

Mothers making the decision to leave work to look after their children.

:07:51.:07:55.

But although that may partially be true,

:07:56.:07:57.

is it really a choice when

:07:58.:07:59.

child care is so prohibitively expensive for many?

:08:00.:08:03.

Is it a choice when flexible working is not valued

:08:04.:08:09.

as highly by many businesses as traditional 9-5 working?

:08:10.:08:13.

a choice that when women return to work they miss out

:08:14.:08:18.

We have about 750 employees, about...

:08:19.:08:21.

Laura runs a mother and child clothing firm.

:08:22.:08:24.

She encourages employees, men and women,

:08:25.:08:25.

And she welcomes parents back to the office.

:08:26.:08:32.

If you have been a full-time parent or been

:08:33.:08:35.

working in a less demanding job for a few years whilst children are

:08:36.:08:38.

young, you still have a huge amount to offer and I am very keen on

:08:39.:08:43.

employing people who have had babies and are keen to come back

:08:44.:08:46.

Businesses will be forced to publish the pay rates for men and women.

:08:47.:08:52.

More shared parental leave is available

:08:53.:08:56.

but end the pay gap in a generation?

:08:57.:08:58.

That lofty target is still a long way from being hit.

:08:59.:09:07.

A short time ago I spoke to Sam Smathers from the Fawcett Society

:09:08.:09:17.

which campaigns for women's rights. For a long time, we were told that

:09:18.:09:20.

things were getting better. This study shows clearly

:09:21.:09:23.

the motherhood penalty that women pay in the labour market

:09:24.:09:27.

when they have children. And the 33% gap that you quoted,

:09:28.:09:31.

which women experience, after 12 years of being a mother,

:09:32.:09:34.

so 12 years after having a first And it's because of the way

:09:35.:09:37.

we structure our labour market. Because of the unequal impact

:09:38.:09:44.

of caring roles that women primarily Well, a number of things

:09:45.:09:46.

could change. We're looking to the government

:09:47.:09:54.

to make some of those changes. We could see an opening up

:09:55.:09:56.

of quality part-time work. The UK economy in particular

:09:57.:10:01.

is heavily dependent on low-paid, part-time workers.

:10:02.:10:06.

75% of those are women. And we are really locking them

:10:07.:10:08.

into low-paid work, and that causes a massive hit on their earning power

:10:09.:10:12.

that results in this Secondly, we could have leave

:10:13.:10:15.

entitlement structured At the moment we presume mothers do

:10:16.:10:18.

the caring and they might share it with others,

:10:19.:10:32.

but really, if we started from a presumption of a quality,

:10:33.:10:34.

we would then remove some And dads would take more

:10:35.:10:37.

of the caring role on. Of course there is a need

:10:38.:10:40.

for equality. But clearly, one size

:10:41.:10:42.

doesn't fit all. How can you create blanket policies

:10:43.:10:44.

for companies that might have different demands

:10:45.:10:46.

and different needs? We simply talk about removing

:10:47.:10:49.

barriers to choice. At the moment what we have are

:10:50.:10:56.

families operating within very tight constraints of the choices

:10:57.:10:59.

available to them. If you are a woman looking

:11:00.:11:01.

for part-time work, you can't get managerial or senior roles.

:11:02.:11:04.

There are very few around. And, actually, what it

:11:05.:11:06.

would do for companies We are wasting women's talents

:11:07.:11:08.

and skills in the economy. It's a massive prize,

:11:09.:11:14.

to employers, actually, If they structured work differently,

:11:15.:11:16.

they would get much better results for themselves

:11:17.:11:20.

and their organisations. So, really, it requires

:11:21.:11:21.

a bit of flexibility and creativity on their part.

:11:22.:11:23.

And they would reap the rewards. I can imagine some people

:11:24.:11:27.

listening to this would say, if a woman chooses to take time

:11:28.:11:29.

out of the labour force and chooses to work part-time,

:11:30.:11:32.

then why should she be Well, it's not about saying

:11:33.:11:34.

that they should be getting the same as a full-time worker in terms

:11:35.:11:41.

of quality of hours, So if you choose to work part time,

:11:42.:11:55.

which she's doing, she's consigning herself to a smaller choice

:11:56.:11:58.

of jobs at lower pay. And there's no reason why having

:11:59.:12:01.

to reduce your hours should mean that you get less pay per hour

:12:02.:12:04.

for your work. And part-timers are missing out

:12:05.:12:06.

on training and promotion opportunities because they are not

:12:07.:12:08.

being taken as seriously in And that is an attitudinal problem

:12:09.:12:11.

that we need to change. President Obama is in Baton Rouge,

:12:12.:12:19.

Louisiana, to tour the devastation He is meeting with some

:12:20.:12:23.

of the thousands of residents who suffered damage to their houses,

:12:24.:12:26.

schools and businesses. The storm has affected

:12:27.:12:29.

an estimated 60,000 homes. For more on the President's trip I'm

:12:30.:12:30.

joined by the BBC's David Willis. The sheer scale of this is hard to

:12:31.:12:43.

grasp. What is president going to see? He will go to see absolute

:12:44.:12:48.

devastation. This is an area that the Governor of said had suffered an

:12:49.:12:55.

unprecedented and historic amount of flooding, 30 inches of rainfall in

:12:56.:12:59.

the space of a weekend. That is the sort of amount of rain that many

:13:00.:13:02.

parts of the United States kept in a year. 60,000 homes have been damaged

:13:03.:13:08.

in that area. 8000 people displaced. More than a dozen deaths as well.

:13:09.:13:13.

Articulately bad for this area is the fact that one of the worst hit

:13:14.:13:18.

areas are those of low income people who don't have flood insurance. He

:13:19.:13:24.

has just arrived and said a few words. What has been his reaction?

:13:25.:13:31.

He got criticism for continuing with his holiday in Martha's Vineyard and

:13:32.:13:35.

not rushing back. Enter that a leadership vacuum, if you like,

:13:36.:13:39.

stepped Donald Trump, the Republican Party nominee, and he made a lot of

:13:40.:13:44.

his visit down there. The Governor of Louisiana welcomed that visit and

:13:45.:13:48.

said Donald Trump had helped raise the profile of the situation in

:13:49.:13:51.

Louisiana. The Governor seemed pleased that there is an Obama did

:13:52.:13:57.

not come earlier, because that presidential visit sucks up

:13:58.:14:01.

resources and diverse them from the important work of salvage and relief

:14:02.:14:05.

and so on. In last few minutes, president Obama, 11 days after these

:14:06.:14:10.

rains came down, turned up in Baton Rouge and said he was heartbroken by

:14:11.:14:15.

the loss of life, as put it. He said that the prayers of the nation well

:14:16.:14:19.

with the people of Louisiana at this time. He said that more than 100,000

:14:20.:14:26.

people had applied for federal relief. $127 million has been spent

:14:27.:14:32.

already. And taking issue with the criticism he has attracted for not

:14:33.:14:36.

going down there earlier, and the publicity Donald Trump has had, he

:14:37.:14:41.

said this is not a one-off photo Op issue. It is for all Americans to

:14:42.:14:46.

stay focused on this in the weeks and months ahead. Along the way

:14:47.:14:52.

ahead for the people of Louisiana. Thank you.

:14:53.:14:54.

Turkey is stepping up an operation to drive militants

:14:55.:14:56.

of Jarablus. from the Syrian border town

:14:57.:14:59.

The Turkish army fired artillery showers into the town,

:15:00.:15:01.

and Syrian rebel fighters - backed by Turkey -

:15:02.:15:03.

are reportedly preparing for a ground assault.

:15:04.:15:05.

A short time ago Turkey told people in the southern town

:15:06.:15:08.

of Karkamis to leave - after it was hit by shells

:15:09.:15:10.

from IS militants over the border in Syria.

:15:11.:15:12.

The BBC's Mark Lowen is in the Turkish border

:15:13.:15:23.

Turkey were seen as a reluctant part of the US-led coalition against

:15:24.:15:28.

so-called Islamic State at a time when the bad about one hour away

:15:29.:15:33.

from here was seen as being porous, allowing Jihadist and weapons across

:15:34.:15:37.

bullied into Syria. Then there has been a of bombings from IS against

:15:38.:15:46.

Turkey including one in Gazientep against a wedding party killing more

:15:47.:15:49.

than 50 people and the sign simply be that that was an attack by IS.

:15:50.:15:54.

That seems to have woken up the Turkish government to the threat

:15:55.:16:00.

from IS, so they are holding an offensive against the IS - held

:16:01.:16:07.

province of Jarablus. Last night the Turkish government opened aerial

:16:08.:16:10.

bombardment campaigns against IS positions to open up a corridor for

:16:11.:16:15.

that imminent offensive. At the same time, Turkey is bombing Syrian

:16:16.:16:20.

Kurdish positions to drive them from the border because Turkey does not

:16:21.:16:23.

want the Kurds to consolidate territory on the other side of the

:16:24.:16:28.

border, because that could foster Kurdish separatism in Turkey, so it

:16:29.:16:31.

is a two pronged attack that Turkey is considering and now watching. The

:16:32.:16:37.

three of ordinary Turks is that by good prompt more IS revenge attacks

:16:38.:16:41.

in Turkey, as this country increasingly pays the price of well

:16:42.:16:48.

that is its own. -- of a war that is not its own.

:16:49.:16:49.

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

:16:50.:16:52.

The German government is considering reintroducing a form

:16:53.:16:54.

of National Service for civilians to help the Army

:16:55.:16:56.

Conscription was abolished in 2011, but a partial reintroduction

:16:57.:16:59.

of it is being discussed as part of a new civil defence strategy.

:17:00.:17:02.

The leaked new plan also advises citizens

:17:03.:17:04.

to store enough food to last ten days.

:17:05.:17:06.

Tourism chiefs in Paris are warning of an industrial disaster

:17:07.:17:10.

following recent terror attacks that have caused a severe drop in

:17:11.:17:14.

There were a million fewer visitors between January and June compared

:17:15.:17:20.

The drop is estimated to have cost about 850 million in lost revenue.

:17:21.:17:28.

A federal judge in the US has ordered a review of nearly 15,000

:17:29.:17:31.

new emails found on an unauthorised account used by Hillary Clinton

:17:32.:17:34.

during her time as Secretary of State.

:17:35.:17:37.

The judge said the US State Department must determine

:17:38.:17:40.

how much sensitive government information was disclosed.

:17:41.:17:46.

An earlier investigation by the FBI of more than 30,000 emails

:17:47.:17:49.

Yesterday we brought you a story about the generation gap in the US

:17:50.:18:00.

and its impact on the American Dream.

:18:01.:18:02.

Tonight we revisit those differences to examine the role

:18:03.:18:04.

of immigration policy in the US presidential election.

:18:05.:18:06.

The BBC spoke to the Magdaleno family who came from Mexico

:18:07.:18:09.

I have lived in Kansas probably for about 25 years.

:18:10.:18:23.

I was born in the centre of Mexico in a city named Guadalajara.

:18:24.:18:30.

My dad and my mum were very low income.

:18:31.:18:32.

I wanted to put my kids in a place where they could choose

:18:33.:18:35.

and they could dream, and I saw that in the United States.

:18:36.:18:43.

My family was very supportive, so I was able to graduate last year.

:18:44.:18:52.

I know that having an education in Mexico would not have been

:18:53.:18:55.

In Mexico, I was able to go only to the seventh grade.

:18:56.:19:04.

I wasn't allowed to continue to go to school because of the finances

:19:05.:19:09.

with my parents, but also the sexism that is culturally ingrained -

:19:10.:19:16.

that women particularly needed to learn how to cook and how

:19:17.:19:23.

to keep and how to run a family, and I wanted something

:19:24.:19:26.

It's painful to decide, we're not going back

:19:27.:19:30.

This is home because it's where our kids need to be.

:19:31.:19:38.

I understand that one of the hardest or biggest parts

:19:39.:19:40.

for both you and dad was leaving behind parents.

:19:41.:19:45.

Sometimes, even I wonder if you guys' sacrifices are worth

:19:46.:19:48.

When I really questioned the cost is when I couldn't bring my mother.

:19:49.:19:56.

Being a permanent legal resident and trying to bring her over

:19:57.:19:59.

Eight years, being told, no, she cannot come to this country.

:20:00.:20:09.

Being able to bring her just a month before she passed away,

:20:10.:20:14.

I think that's when I become a little bit resentful.

:20:15.:20:20.

But the day you graduated, I told you that I feel

:20:21.:20:23.

I think the sacrifices did, and will continue to,

:20:24.:20:27.

I hope to eventually get my Masters degree in a few more years,

:20:28.:20:36.

and I hope for Tristan to continue that same thinking.

:20:37.:20:43.

I've told him that I want him to become something greater

:20:44.:20:46.

than what I have, so that when he has his kids,

:20:47.:20:48.

The pain that families experienced when separated is often cited as a

:20:49.:21:12.

reason for comprehensive immigration reform. Why does it remain such a

:21:13.:21:17.

divisive issue in the US? Because Republicans will say that it is

:21:18.:21:20.

people who have come into the country illegally and they should

:21:21.:21:24.

not be allowed any form of amnesty, and that you allow people to come

:21:25.:21:28.

illegally over the border then you give them a pathway to citizenship

:21:29.:21:32.

legal status to date jobs, that will encourage other people to come as

:21:33.:21:36.

well. Actually, the numbers of people crossing the border have

:21:37.:21:41.

declined significantly since 2008. Net migration is now negative across

:21:42.:21:45.

the border. More people are turning because the Mexican economy has been

:21:46.:21:49.

doing better and the American economy has been doing worse. It is

:21:50.:21:53.

interesting that Donald Trump at the moment is struggling with this as a

:21:54.:21:56.

campaign issue, having made it during the primary season a rallying

:21:57.:22:03.

point for Conservatives. He is now rolling back his campaign, going

:22:04.:22:05.

back on one of the more controversial planks of his

:22:06.:22:09.

immigration platform, which was that he would deport those people who are

:22:10.:22:13.

here illegally. His campaign say that is still to be determined.

:22:14.:22:18.

Interesting to talk about reverse migration. Maria there was

:22:19.:22:21.

questioning whether the sacrifices of her mother were worth it. How is

:22:22.:22:27.

the Clinton campaign treating this? They are more open to immigrants

:22:28.:22:30.

generally and would like some pathway to legal status for people

:22:31.:22:37.

who are here in the country as workers. They, too, and president

:22:38.:22:41.

Obama has struggled with what they can do legally, because President

:22:42.:22:46.

Obama tried to allow some five, six million people who have

:22:47.:22:49.

American-born children to get legal status here with an executive order

:22:50.:22:53.

but the Republicans in Congress shut that down, they were not allowed to

:22:54.:22:57.

do it, and if the Republicans hang on to Congress, immigration is going

:22:58.:23:04.

to be another of those issues. How much will a President Clinton, if

:23:05.:23:08.

you gets elected be able to influence this if they Republicans

:23:09.:23:09.

still control Congress? A two-year-old boy in Utah has

become an internet sensation for a most impressive skill -

the ability to fly. Little Wil has Down

Syndrome, but has been given taken by his dad, Alan Lawrence.

:23:19.:23:20.

What started as a bit of fun has taken on a deeper meaning and made

:23:21.:23:25.

Wil a star on social media. Alan

:23:26.:23:28.

spoke to the BBC about the awareness Flying is obviously symbolic

:23:29.:23:30.

of being free and not It's that big dream that, wow,

:23:31.:23:35.

what if we could fly? We could do anything

:23:36.:23:41.

we put our minds to - My name is Alan Lawrence and I am

:23:42.:23:44.

a photographer Wil is my two-year-old son

:23:45.:23:48.

and he is my second youngest. When I originally found out that Wil

:23:49.:23:59.

had Down's syndrome, As I started to think more

:24:00.:24:01.

about these flying pictures of Wil, I really started to recognise

:24:02.:24:09.

that there was a deeper meaning to these pictures,

:24:10.:24:15.

understanding that One day, I had the idea to just

:24:16.:24:17.

take him out into the yard I was holding Wil in a pose that

:24:18.:24:22.

looks like he was flying, then, using Photoshop,

:24:23.:24:26.

I would mask myself out of the photo, so it looked like Wil

:24:27.:24:28.

was just flying on his own. I decided to push the photos

:24:29.:24:35.

a little bit more and I started posting them to my Instagram

:24:36.:24:38.

account, using the hashtag #downsyndrome and different things

:24:39.:24:41.

like that and it just kind We joke that he knows he's

:24:42.:24:43.

a celebrity because when we're out in public, he's always saying hi

:24:44.:24:51.

and trying to shake people's hands or give them a high five and we joke

:24:52.:24:55.

that it's his celebrity status that For anyone else who is just

starting down this journey, I would say, understanding that

:25:00.:25:04.

it's not going to be easy, but it's going to be worth

it, is a big part of it. He is teaching us, even at a very

:25:11.:25:14.

small age, how to be patient, how to be non-judgemental,

:25:15.:25:18.

how to be unconditional in our love. We know that Wil, even though

:25:19.:25:24.

he has Down's syndrome, is going to be able to do anything

:25:25.:25:27.

he puts his mind to, and that he will fly -

:25:28.:25:30.

and that he can fly. Magical photos of a truly magical
