Hello and welcome to BBC World News with me Karin Giannone.

:00:08.:00:10.

In two hours' time Rio's Paralympic Opening Ceremony gets underway.

:00:11.:00:12.

It's been a difficult run-up, beset by problems, but athletes

:00:13.:00:15.

and organisers are now confident they'll be a success.

:00:16.:00:23.

It seems like years ago now but it is about four weeks ago, or five

:00:24.:00:29.

weeks ago, that we started to realise the mess they were in. I

:00:30.:00:36.

will be live in Rio with all the latest on the mood amongst the

:00:37.:00:39.

Paralympians, with just hours to go until the start of these games.

:00:40.:00:41.

In other news, residents of the besieged Syrian city

:00:42.:00:43.

of Aleppo are bombed again, just hours after

:00:44.:00:45.

It comes as opposition groups meet in London

:00:46.:00:48.

Apple unveils its latest iPhone 7, so does it have that headphone port?

:00:49.:00:56.

Fears for the future of London's nightclubs after one of its best

:00:57.:01:02.

known venues, Fabric, is closed amid claims

:01:03.:01:03.

The countdown is on to the Opening Ceremony

:01:04.:01:28.

Over the next 12 days, 4,300 athletes will be taking part,

:01:29.:01:32.

from 161 countries, competing in 23 sports with 528 gold

:01:33.:01:35.

New heroes will emerge and memorable performances will take place.

:01:36.:01:40.

The organisers will be hoping the ceremony in a few hours' time

:01:41.:01:43.

will draw a line under a chaotic build-up.

:01:44.:01:45.

There's been controversy over a lack of funding, poor ticket sales,

:01:46.:01:48.

the Russian team being banned over the doping scandal,

:01:49.:01:50.

and questions over the way athletes are classified.

:01:51.:01:53.

From Rio, our correspondent Nikki Fox reports.

:01:54.:02:04.

Just over two weeks since the flame was put out on South America 's

:02:05.:02:11.

first ever Olympic games, the city 's most iconic landmark has been lit

:02:12.:02:16.

up once more. This time it is in the colours of the Paralympics.

:02:17.:02:22.

Expectations were high following London 2012, undoubtedly the most

:02:23.:02:27.

successful Paralympic games to date. There were a record number of

:02:28.:02:29.

tickets sold and more people tuned in than ever before and the

:02:30.:02:33.

Paralympic movement was as strong as it has ever been. The build-up to

:02:34.:02:39.

Rio has been beset with serious problems. One month ago, when the

:02:40.:02:44.

International Paralympic Committee revealed there was no money, many

:02:45.:02:47.

fear the Paralympic movement was about to take a backwards step. We

:02:48.:02:53.

should not be taking out our begging bowls. We understand that people are

:02:54.:02:57.

living in difficult times but what we don't understand is why we have

:02:58.:03:01.

to be an afterthought every time, why should this games be staged on a

:03:02.:03:07.

shoestring? Despite emergency measures like moving events and

:03:08.:03:10.

removing transport facilities, ticket sales are on the up, and the

:03:11.:03:18.

athletes are ready. The British team and their famous faces, their one

:03:19.:03:22.

and only concern now is winning. People might be looking negatively

:03:23.:03:26.

but I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised and when they

:03:27.:03:29.

see the performances of British athletes especially, going out and

:03:30.:03:32.

get a gold medals, I think it will be forgotten about. Over 4000

:03:33.:03:38.

athletes from 161 countries will join thousands of volunteers. The

:03:39.:03:43.

games are about to begin, but perhaps here in Rio, the Paralympic

:03:44.:03:48.

movement has already passed its hardest test.

:03:49.:03:48.

Well, Nikki has also been speaking to the President

:03:49.:03:51.

of the International Paralympic Committee, Sir Philip Craven,

:03:52.:03:52.

about the troubled build-up to the games in Rio.

:03:53.:03:55.

It seems like years ago now but it's about four weeks or five weeks ago

:03:56.:03:59.

when we started to realise the mess that they were in,

:04:00.:04:03.

particularly from a financial point of view, no money.

:04:04.:04:07.

I think the organising committee in Rio were in a state of hyper

:04:08.:04:18.

stress and we had to get hold of some of the facts.

:04:19.:04:21.

And once we got some of the facts, we could get to work.

:04:22.:04:27.

And we made close contact with the acting federal government,

:04:28.:04:29.

of course, at that time and the city authorities through the mayor,

:04:30.:04:32.

I've just been to the village now and the athletes are all pretty

:04:33.:04:38.

happy with where they are at, and we're going to have great games.

:04:39.:04:41.

There was a real sense, wasn't there, that it was dire,

:04:42.:04:44.

Did the IPC have any warning signs that this was happening,

:04:45.:04:52.

that this money was being diverted to the Olympics?

:04:53.:04:54.

Well, those are your words, actually.

:04:55.:04:58.

I think what happened was the organising committee ran out

:04:59.:05:00.

of money and therefore the consequence was pretty serious

:05:01.:05:02.

for the Olympics but absolutely dire for the Paralympics.

:05:03.:05:09.

And so, I'm not talking about whether money

:05:10.:05:11.

Sir Philip Craven, who is present on the International Paralympic

:05:12.:05:20.

Committee. Let's go live to Rio now

:05:21.:05:21.

and our correspondent Kate Grey. What is the atmosphere like?

:05:22.:05:33.

Well, as I stand here, looking over the newly relaying to Paralympic

:05:34.:05:37.

part, I can hear final reparations taking place with drums in the

:05:38.:05:40.

background, and that feels real sense that the Paralympic spirit has

:05:41.:05:45.

arrived, despite all of the problems there has been in the lead up with

:05:46.:05:48.

overspends at the Olympic Games and wondering whether they would be able

:05:49.:05:52.

to finish their news and bring the teams to these games, it feels now

:05:53.:05:55.

that all of that has been put to bed and they are ready to put on a great

:05:56.:06:00.

show. I went for a wander along Copacabana beach yesterday at the

:06:01.:06:04.

Olympic rings have been replaced and the public were taking photos and

:06:05.:06:11.

they are starting to embrace these games and the increase in ticket

:06:12.:06:15.

sets sales has shown that the Brazilian people are ready to

:06:16.:06:17.

support the Paralympics and fill up the stands.

:06:18.:06:24.

So the opening ceremony, what are we looking out for?

:06:25.:06:30.

There are over 4300 athletes competing here across 528 gold medal

:06:31.:06:35.

events, so there is so much action to look out for. I had to mention

:06:36.:06:41.

the poster boy of these Paralympic games for Rio, Daniel Diaz, he is

:06:42.:06:44.

competing in the aquatic centre behind me in nine events and he is

:06:45.:06:49.

Brazil's most successful Paralympian so he has nothing to prove that he

:06:50.:06:53.

will go out there and give his home crowd something to cheer about. He

:06:54.:06:57.

is one of the most hunted down in the swimming pool because no one can

:06:58.:07:01.

touch, he is a bit like Michael Phelps. As we move into the

:07:02.:07:07.

athletics Stadium we have the likes of the German long jumper who was a

:07:08.:07:10.

Paralympic champion and in recent years he has been jumping distance

:07:11.:07:14.

that would allow him to compete against able-bodied athletes

:07:15.:07:17.

although he has not been allowed to compete

:07:18.:07:28.

in an Games so he will be one to watch because he is hoping to

:07:29.:07:32.

qualify at the World Championships able-bodied competition next year.

:07:33.:07:34.

Finally I have to mention Tatiana McFadden, one of the great Olympic

:07:35.:07:36.

-- great American hopes who wants to add another gold to the three she

:07:37.:07:39.

won at London 2012. Kate Grey there is herself a former

:07:40.:07:40.

Paralympic swimmer. Well, you'll remember Russia

:07:41.:07:41.

received a blanket ban on attending the Paralympics

:07:42.:07:43.

because of a state-sponsored So Russia has decided

:07:44.:07:45.

to hold its own event. An opening ceremony has already

:07:46.:07:48.

taken place in Moscow for a Russian competition described

:07:49.:07:51.

as the Alternative Paralympics. The BBC's Oleg Boldyrev

:07:52.:07:54.

was at the ceremony. As the Paralympic games are about to

:07:55.:08:06.

open in Rio here in Moscow we have something we call the competent --

:08:07.:08:10.

compensation games, special event for the squad that was banned from

:08:11.:08:14.

Rio. A ceremony here is greeting all the teams in track and field,

:08:15.:08:18.

fencing, archery, rowing and other sports. It is a three-day event

:08:19.:08:24.

which will involve 260 Paralympic athletes from Russia. Of course they

:08:25.:08:29.

are disappointed. This thing is bigger than Rio. Of course the mood

:08:30.:08:35.

is ruined, we were preparing for a sporting battle and now we have two

:08:36.:08:39.

weight. We prepared for four years and for some this is a shock that is

:08:40.:08:44.

enough to make them consider quitting sport. What will Russian

:08:45.:08:49.

Paralympians do now there was no sporting schedule? Most of them say

:08:50.:08:53.

they will stay on and fight on and they are hoping a decision and a

:08:54.:08:56.

solution will be found soon but at the moment all they have is this

:08:57.:08:58.

three-day event in Russia. Now a look at some of

:08:59.:09:01.

the day's other news. Philippine officials say

:09:02.:09:07.

President Rodrigo Duterte and President Barack Obama have met

:09:08.:09:08.

informally at the gala dinner Relations between the two men had

:09:09.:09:11.

soured after President Duterte used rude language

:09:12.:09:15.

when referring to Obama. It led to the US president

:09:16.:09:18.

cancelling a formal meeting Denmark will buy data leaked

:09:19.:09:23.

from the law firm at the heart of the Panama Papers scandal,

:09:24.:09:31.

the country's taxation Over 11 million documents

:09:32.:09:33.

previously leaked from Mossack Fonseca to international media

:09:34.:09:39.

revealed huge offshore tax evasion. In this latest development,

:09:40.:09:42.

an anonymous offer to sell data involving up to 600 Danish citizens

was made over the summer There are reports of a bomb attack

:09:45.:09:47.

on the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo a day after dozens

:09:48.:09:58.

were hospitalised following It comes as Syria's main opposition

:09:59.:10:00.

groups meet in London to try to find Our Middle East Editor Jeremy Bowen

:10:01.:10:04.

sends this report from You may find some of

:10:05.:10:09.

the images distressing. Another air attack on East Aleppo,

:10:10.:10:26.

which is held by an assortment of rebels. Civil defence workers pulled

:10:27.:10:31.

out casualties, as they have done countless times before. The attack

:10:32.:10:34.

was close to the place where local reports say the bombs containing

:10:35.:10:40.

poisonous chlorine gas were dropped on Tuesday. The Syrian government

:10:41.:10:45.

always denies using chemical weapons, despite many accusations.

:10:46.:10:49.

This side of the city is at the moment the government 's biggest

:10:50.:10:54.

target. The Syrian army is trying to surround eastern Aleppo and seal it

:10:55.:10:58.

off, an attempt to impose a siege to starve out the anti-government

:10:59.:11:04.

forces that oppose it. Casualties were taken to a makeshift hospital

:11:05.:11:08.

and the fighting and the attempts to impose a total siege mean they are

:11:09.:11:13.

short of medical supplies. The regime blames the bloodshed on

:11:14.:11:18.

foreign companies -- countries intervening to destroy Syria. It

:11:19.:11:22.

denies accusations that it writs of election skier and says that

:11:23.:11:25.

President Assad has no plans to leave office. We elected our

:11:26.:11:30.

President and our Parliament and our local administration units, but

:11:31.:11:35.

these Western countries will recognise only what they want or the

:11:36.:11:40.

results that they want. We have a very strong government, we have

:11:41.:11:46.

sustained a six-year war against Syria and I assure you we shall

:11:47.:11:51.

continue as long as the intervention takes place. In London, backed by

:11:52.:11:58.

Britain, the Saudis and others, a Syrian -- coalition has produced the

:11:59.:12:07.

most detailed blueprint for power, including President Assad and his

:12:08.:12:10.

clique leaving. They don't expect to get any time soon from Damascus. If

:12:11.:12:17.

Asharq Al Asad continues to drag his feet and refuse to engage seriously

:12:18.:12:20.

then obviously there will have to be a plan B that will involve more

:12:21.:12:25.

stepped-up military activity. This is the centre of Damascus and this

:12:26.:12:29.

part of the capital could not look any more different to the east side

:12:30.:12:33.

of Aleppo. There is huge war damage a few miles away and across the

:12:34.:12:37.

country but this is the regime 's showcase. Now, if the demand to step

:12:38.:12:42.

down had been delivered by a victorious army at the gates of his

:12:43.:12:44.

palace then President Assad in Syria

:12:45.:13:01.

appears to be far from over. Hair raising rescue journeys have been

:13:02.:13:04.

happening every day in this country for more than five years. These were

:13:05.:13:06.

civil defence workers in rebel held eastern Aleppo, racing to save

:13:07.:13:09.

casualties in the attack on Tuesday that local experts say contained

:13:10.:13:12.

chlorine gas. One Syrian general I have spoken to set the war could get

:13:13.:13:16.

much longer, perhaps another ten years.

:13:17.:13:20.

Our Chief International Correspondent, Lyse Doucet,

:13:21.:13:22.

is at the Foreign Office in central London where the talks

:13:23.:13:24.

We heard the Syrian government view on foreign intervention, what is the

:13:25.:13:36.

opposition perspective on outside involvement?

:13:37.:13:41.

You can see behind me that a briefing is going on as the French

:13:42.:13:44.

Foreign Minister is talking two French journalists who attended and

:13:45.:13:47.

were on the sidelines of these talks, hosted by the British Foreign

:13:48.:13:52.

Secretary, Boris Johnson with the Syrian opposition. They believe this

:13:53.:13:57.

is the best plan for looking forward to a future for Syria, the most

:13:58.:14:02.

detail they have ever presented for Security and political transition

:14:03.:14:05.

that would ensure a stable transfer of power that would avoid the kind

:14:06.:14:09.

of collapse that has been seen in neighbouring states like Iraq and

:14:10.:14:15.

Libya. Yet again, you can see the French Foreign Minister is here and

:14:16.:14:18.

there were more foreign in -- foreign ministers from the West and

:14:19.:14:22.

the Arab world inside the Foreign Office today, this is a conflict

:14:23.:14:26.

that draws in more outside powers than any other conflict anywhere in

:14:27.:14:28.

the world and we have been hearing reports today that the Turkish

:14:29.:14:34.

president has been speaking to the US president and possibly Turkish

:14:35.:14:37.

troops moving further into northern Syria and helping in the attack

:14:38.:14:40.

against one of the last places held by so-called Islamic State in Raqqa,

:14:41.:14:48.

that would be a controversial move despite it being a priority for the

:14:49.:14:54.

West to get rid of the remains of Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.

:14:55.:14:59.

We have had so many years searching for a police -- peace process, what

:15:00.:15:04.

is different this time? No one expects Syria to go to a

:15:05.:15:08.

negotiating table any time soon but what is new about this plan is the

:15:09.:15:12.

kind of detail it improves and it is meant to be an answer to those,

:15:13.:15:16.

including the Russians and the Iranians, who say that if President

:15:17.:15:19.

Assad goes then Syria would collapse. Now they are saying we

:15:20.:15:24.

have a plan to keep the institutions in place and we have a plan that

:15:25.:15:29.

will include some members of the Syrian regime, but not all, and not

:15:30.:15:34.

president Assad. I have been speaking to the Syrian opposition

:15:35.:15:35.

spokesperson. No ,we don't expect Assad

:15:36.:15:38.

to come to us and say, yes, I'm moving out,

:15:39.:15:44.

but that's why we are here. We want to hear

:15:45.:15:46.

from our friends, that really in this war are

:15:47.:15:48.

decision-makers and they can really Russia is playing a big

:15:49.:15:51.

role there, Iran is playing a big role,

:15:52.:15:56.

but unfortunately negative, they are Russia is taking advantage

:15:57.:15:59.

of this situation because they know that Mr Obama only

:16:00.:16:05.

has another few months and he wants to do something, and we don't want

:16:06.:16:10.

them to do anything against our You don't want to trust the talks

:16:11.:16:13.

now taking place between the Secretary of State, John Kerry,

:16:14.:16:19.

and the Russian Foreign It is not the American side

:16:20.:16:21.

we don't trust, but we fear that they will listen to

:16:22.:16:27.

the Russians and agree on what the The Russians, they work

:16:28.:16:31.

for the regime and they want to do anything for this regime,

:16:32.:16:34.

not the Syrian people. That is our fear, but we hope

:16:35.:16:38.

that the Americans will be aware of that, because you know,

:16:39.:16:41.

things will not end when this administration leaves

:16:42.:16:45.

the White House and there is a new administration, but in

:16:46.:16:50.

the end it's American policy, foreign policy,

:16:51.:16:52.

and they really have to do things right

:16:53.:16:54.

and not trust the Russians when it The opposition spokesman expressed

:16:55.:17:18.

some concerns about those talks between Lovegrove and Kerry but now

:17:19.:17:22.

we have heard there is some progress and there was talk about a deal by

:17:23.:17:26.

Friday which would mean a temporary truce across all of Syria. If that

:17:27.:17:31.

happens then it would provide a small speck of light in a very dark

:17:32.:17:33.

war. Thank you very much.

:17:34.:17:36.

There are concerns over the future of London's status as a global

:17:37.:17:46.

centre for nightlife after one of its biggest clubs,

:17:47.:17:48.

It had its licence revoked following the deaths

:17:49.:17:51.

of two teenagers from suspected drug overdoses.

:17:52.:17:52.

Half of London's nightclubs have closed in the last eight years.

:17:53.:17:55.

For nearly 17 years it's been at the forefront

:17:56.:17:58.

of London's clubbing scene, hosting the biggest DJs, attracting

:17:59.:18:06.

international crowds, but the party is over at Fabric nightclub.

:18:07.:18:08.

Today there were flowers outside of the news is that its

:18:09.:18:11.

licence had been revoked over concerns about drug use at the club.

:18:12.:18:14.

Its owners have called the decision a travesty.

:18:15.:18:22.

Yes, it's a shock, and we are absolutely devastated

:18:23.:18:24.

for the people involved, devastated for the consequences of it but more

:18:25.:18:27.

than anything we are frustrated and angry.

:18:28.:18:29.

Airports aren't held responsible for drug mules coming

:18:30.:18:31.

The Calais ferry isn't responsible for people trafficking

:18:32.:18:34.

and the hundreds of tonnes contraband they transport

:18:35.:18:36.

No one is held responsible and they just pick

:18:37.:18:39.

on nightclubs because we are just a soft target.

:18:40.:18:42.

The club was already temporarily closed after the

:18:43.:18:44.

deaths of two teenagers over the summer and decided to shut it

:18:45.:18:50.

permanently Islington Council said there was a culture of drug use

:18:51.:18:52.

which the management and security seemed to be

:18:53.:18:54.

The Metropolitan Police argued that keeping Fabric open could cause more

:18:55.:19:02.

There have been six here in the last four years and

:19:03.:19:07.

Supporters of the club says Fabric does all it can to prevent drug use

:19:08.:19:13.

and they will probably now just move elsewhere.

:19:14.:19:15.

Shutting the doors of this club isn't going to stop those

:19:16.:19:18.

young people going and doing drugs, they will just go and do it in the

:19:19.:19:22.

In this club there are four medics and a resuscitation team.

:19:23.:19:25.

Many people's lives have been saved by Fabric's professionalism.

:19:26.:19:28.

They will now be in a park or a pub that doesn't have

:19:29.:19:31.

50% of nightclubs have closed in London in the last eight years.

:19:32.:19:39.

The city's mayor Sadiq Khan says he is disappointed by the Fabric

:19:40.:19:42.

decision at a time when he is trying to promote the night-time economy.

:19:43.:19:46.

A fund has already been started to help the nightclub launch

:19:47.:19:50.

It's the best iPhone that we have ever created! This is iPhone seven.

:19:51.:20:15.

Yes, Apple has unveiled its latest handheld device, which it hopes

:20:16.:20:17.

will again dominate the smartphone market.

:20:18.:20:19.

With me is our technology reporter, Chris Foxx.

:20:20.:20:21.

They are just announcing everything now, they let some details slip on

:20:22.:20:36.

Twitter earlier today and release details they may not have been ready

:20:37.:20:39.

to do. The phone is going to be water resistant so you can take it

:20:40.:20:43.

into the bath tub of that is your thing and it looks as though the

:20:44.:20:46.

headphone socket will disappear so your old headphones that you are

:20:47.:20:49.

used to using will not fit in the phone because it had to go to make

:20:50.:20:54.

the phone water resistant. It also has a new dual camera on the phone

:20:55.:21:00.

with two cameras on the back instead of one so they can do clever things

:21:01.:21:05.

like have one that is wide angle so you can take pictures of all of your

:21:06.:21:10.

friends with all of the main or the other camera will give you a

:21:11.:21:13.

close-up. They are new features on the phone.

:21:14.:21:16.

They are new features for Apple, but has anyone else done this before?

:21:17.:21:22.

Well, yes, they are billing it as revolutionary but Samsung 's top

:21:23.:21:24.

handsets have been water resistant for some time and the dual camera

:21:25.:21:27.

function, there are already phones out there with dual camera

:21:28.:21:34.

functions. LG have a phone with a dual selfie mode and there is

:21:35.:21:40.

another phone that has a dual camera in the back which lets you refocus a

:21:41.:21:46.

picture once you have taken it, so if you took a picture and you

:21:47.:21:50.

weren't happy with the bit that was in focus, it can calculate a

:21:51.:21:53.

work-out the depth and refocus things a little bit. Apple have just

:21:54.:21:56.

said that Sony 's revolutionary because it can do that blur the

:21:57.:22:00.

background and keep you in focus, but not so revolutionary, it is

:22:01.:22:06.

already out there on other android handsets.

:22:07.:22:07.

We will let you get back to listening what Tim Clark -- Tim Cook

:22:08.:22:12.

Barely a day goes by without Russia's Vladimir Putin

:22:13.:22:15.

being mentioned in the contest for the American presidency.

:22:16.:22:17.

On Tuesday Donald Trump claimed the Russian leader looks

:22:18.:22:19.

The day before, Hillary Clinton accused Mr Trump of having a bizarre

:22:20.:22:26.

attraction to dictators, including Putin.

:22:27.:22:29.

So, is Donald Trump the Kremlin's man?

:22:30.:22:30.

Who would Russia like to see in the White House next year?

:22:31.:22:33.

Our Moscow correspondent Steve Rosenberg reports.

:22:34.:22:37.

Outside the US Embassy in Moscow, it's a modern version

:22:38.:22:39.

She's a pro-Putin activist, and, as you can see,

:22:40.:22:48.

And just to prove it she has brought along her Donald Doves.

:22:49.:23:03.

TRANSLATION: As Secretary of State,

:23:04.:23:05.

Hillary Clinton caused a new Cold War.

:23:06.:23:10.

Maria says, Trump as president brings hope of a new world order.

:23:11.:23:13.

And from the sound effects, Moscow stands to benefit.

:23:14.:23:15.

Wouldn't it be nice if we actually did get along with Russia,

:23:16.:23:18.

And a President Trump may recognise Crimea as part of Russia.

:23:19.:23:22.

I'm going to take a look at it but the people of Crimea

:23:23.:23:25.

from what I've heard would rather be with Russia than where they are.

:23:26.:23:30.

We are not involved anyhow in this campaign, we are not supporting

:23:31.:23:40.

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton or others.

:23:41.:23:48.

Politicians are people, in American policy, in any sort

:23:49.:23:53.

And yet if you take a look back over the last 100 years or so of Russian

:23:54.:23:58.

history you would be hard pressed to find a Russian leader and a US

:23:59.:24:02.

presidential candidate who have more in common,

:24:03.:24:04.

than Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump.

:24:05.:24:09.

And since Trump says nice things about Russia and its leader,

:24:10.:24:15.

while Hillary Clinton is more hardline on Moscow,

:24:16.:24:18.

it's not surprising that polls here show more Russians want him

:24:19.:24:23.

No one sings Donald Trump's praises louder than Russia's

:24:24.:24:34.

Philipp Kirkorov has known Donald Trump for more than 20 years.

:24:35.:24:45.

He was one of the judges at Trump's

:24:46.:24:47.

If Donald Trump would-be president then their relationship

:24:48.:24:53.

between our country will be much, much better,

:24:54.:24:56.

closer and I pray for that

:24:57.:24:58.

because I miss something very special between Russia and America

:24:59.:25:02.

I missed this because it's too big nations, two big countries,

:25:03.:25:07.

Donald Trump called him Russia's Michael Jackson

:25:08.:25:15.

and he's hoping to call Trump America's president.

:25:16.:25:29.

The controversial trip by Donald Trump last week to Mexico has

:25:30.:25:36.

brought about the resignation of the Finance minister in Mexico who is

:25:37.:25:43.

widely seen as the politician who coordinated the meeting with the

:25:44.:25:46.

president which has angered Mexicans and the Republican president has

:25:47.:25:50.

vowed to build a wall along the Mexican-American border and make

:25:51.:25:50.

Mexico paid for it. If you want to get in touch with us
