This is BBC News. The headlines at nine:

:00:13.:00:22.

A bitter confrontation over Syria at the United Nations, with the US

:00:23.:00:30.

accusing Russia and Syria of barbarism over the bombing of

:00:31.:00:33.

Aleppo. What Russia is sponsoring undoing is

:00:34.:00:39.

not counter-terrorism, it is barbarism.

:00:40.:00:41.

TRANSLATION: Perhaps we should stop accusing people. Politicians who say

:00:42.:00:45.

they have the best interests of the Syrian people in mind.

:00:46.:00:49.

Is anyone out there? China switches on the world's largest radio

:00:50.:00:53.

telescope. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump

:00:54.:00:56.

prepare for their first presidential debate. What can they learn from

:00:57.:01:00.

previous encounters? And Britain's Prince William takes

:01:01.:01:03.

his young family to Canada for their first royal tour.

:01:04.:01:19.

Hello and welcome. There has been sharp confrontations at the UN

:01:20.:01:26.

Security Council in New York. At a special meeting over the violence in

:01:27.:01:31.

Syria. UN ambassadors of America and Russia blamed each other for the

:01:32.:01:34.

escalation in the fighting, particularly in rebel held areas of

:01:35.:01:39.

Aleppo, which are being pounded by air strikes. The US Ambassador

:01:40.:01:43.

Samantha Power accused Russia of telling outright lies. She said

:01:44.:01:47.

Russia was emboldened barbarism, and loudly -- outwardly pursuing war.

:01:48.:01:55.

Her Russian counterpart accused armed groups of sabotaging the

:01:56.:01:58.

ceasefire. Tensions have risen since an attack on EU man aid convoy on

:01:59.:02:02.

Monday that killed 20 people. There is our correspondent on a dramatic

:02:03.:02:07.

day at the UN, when diplomacy gave weight to finger-pointing.

:02:08.:02:10.

The Syrian government's furious assault continues,

:02:11.:02:12.

diplomacy apparently unable to stop the carnage.

:02:13.:02:18.

In rebel-held eastern Aleppo, home to more than a quarter

:02:19.:02:21.

of a million people, overnight airstrikes leave buildings

:02:22.:02:24.

After 1,500 days of war, the people of Aleppo thought they'd

:02:25.:02:32.

seen it all, but the scale of the latest

:02:33.:02:34.

At least 150 air strikes and a mounting toll of civilians,

:02:35.:02:41.

Britain now accusing Syria and Russia of the gravest of crimes.

:02:42.:02:48.

After five years of conflict, you might think that the regime has

:02:49.:02:52.

had its fill of barbarity, that its sick bloodlust

:02:53.:02:55.

against its own people has finally run its course, but this weekend,

:02:56.:02:58.

the regime and Russia have instead plunged to new depths.

:02:59.:03:06.

In short, it is difficult to deny that Russia is partnering

:03:07.:03:10.

with the Syrian regime to carry out war crimes.

:03:11.:03:15.

Among this weekend's desperate scenes, the miraculous rescue

:03:16.:03:17.

of this five-year-old girl, pulled alive from the rubble

:03:18.:03:22.

of a building where her parents and four siblings are said

:03:23.:03:25.

Her name is now being evoked in this diplomatic row.

:03:26.:03:31.

It is apocalyptic what is being done to eastern Aleppo.

:03:32.:03:33.

Surely, the girl, who at five years old has lost her entire family,

:03:34.:03:40.

this council could have the courage to say who is responsible for this

:03:41.:03:47.

and, in a single voice, tell Russia to stop.

:03:48.:03:53.

But Russia is in no mood for apologising, saying it's

:03:54.:03:57.

terrorists, not civilians, who it is trying to hit.

:03:58.:04:01.

TRANSLATION: More than 200,000 people in Aleppo have become

:04:02.:04:07.

They are trying to use women and children as a human shield.

:04:08.:04:14.

There is no doubt fighters once loyal to Al-Qaeda are playing a key

:04:15.:04:18.

role in the battle against government forces but the assault

:04:19.:04:23.

The city is running out of food, medicine and fuel.

:04:24.:04:34.

The UN is warning that if this is the prelude to a ground

:04:35.:04:37.

offensive, what is left of Aleppo will be destroyed.

:04:38.:04:42.

Our correspondent Nick Bryant is in New York and has been following

:04:43.:04:48.

today's developments. We have seen many angry Security Council meetings

:04:49.:04:50.

over the years of this conflict. Many times, Western governments have

:04:51.:04:54.

joined together to attack the Syrian government. What was different about

:04:55.:04:59.

this meeting was not just the level of anger, but the way that anger was

:05:00.:05:03.

directed against the Russians. America, France and Britain joined

:05:04.:05:07.

together to launch a blistering attack, saying, not even implying,

:05:08.:05:12.

being very explicit, that when it comes to the bombing of Aleppo, the

:05:13.:05:18.

Assad regime and Vladimir Putin's government are the selfsame thing.

:05:19.:05:21.

You heard it there in that report from Paul Adams. The UK ambassador

:05:22.:05:26.

said that Russia is partnering with the Syrian government to carry out

:05:27.:05:30.

war crimes. Therefore, what is the motivations

:05:31.:05:35.

of these parties it comes to Russia and trying to get it to come to the

:05:36.:05:40.

table over Syria? Well, the problem as they try to

:05:41.:05:47.

salvage this ceasefire agreement is that the Russians and the Syrian

:05:48.:05:51.

government increasingly believe that they can win a decisive battle

:05:52.:05:55.

ground victory in Aleppo, and that will enable them to win the war.

:05:56.:06:00.

They are saying now there could be a military solution to the conflict in

:06:01.:06:04.

Syria rather than a diplomatic and political one. Russia's ambassador

:06:05.:06:09.

said something very significant today, that bringing peace to Syria

:06:10.:06:12.

will now be all but impossible. The Americans will try all they can, I

:06:13.:06:17.

guess, to try and salvage this diplomatic track, that has been

:06:18.:06:25.

months on going with Kerry and Sergei Lavrov.

:06:26.:06:29.

If you want more information about what is happening inside Syria,

:06:30.:06:33.

visit our website. You will find background information and analysis,

:06:34.:06:36.

including an article about why President Assad desperately needs to

:06:37.:06:38.

recapture Aleppo. Let's get some of the news. Police

:06:39.:06:48.

in Hungary sake an explosion and viewed up some Saturday night, which

:06:49.:06:52.

injured two police officers, was caused by a home-made bomb. The

:06:53.:06:56.

Hungarian police chief said the officers, who were on foot patrol,

:06:57.:07:00.

were deliberately targeted. They are now in a stable condition in

:07:01.:07:02.

hospital. Voters in Switzerland have approved

:07:03.:07:08.

a law that will give new powers to the country's intelligence services.

:07:09.:07:12.

The legislation will allow the authorities to tap phones, track

:07:13.:07:16.

internet activity and use hidden cameras and microphones to monitor

:07:17.:07:18.

suspects. Bosnian Serbs have been voting in a

:07:19.:07:21.

referendum on whether to keep January the 9th national holiday.

:07:22.:07:27.

The date is an Orthodox Christian feast day, and the court ruled that

:07:28.:07:30.

it discriminated against Muslim Bosniaks and Catholic Croats.

:07:31.:07:36.

And now, to the US, where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are

:07:37.:07:38.

preparing to go head-to-head in their first televised debate on

:07:39.:07:44.

Monday. It is a tight race, with the two presidential candidates running

:07:45.:07:48.

neck and neck in the polls, and so far, their performances will be

:07:49.:07:52.

closely monitored. So what can they learn from previous TV debates? Our

:07:53.:07:56.

North American editor has been looking back at the key moments.

:07:57.:08:02.

The candidates need no introduction. The Republican candidate, Vice

:08:03.:08:05.

President Richard Nixon, and the Democratic candidate, Senator John

:08:06.:08:07.

F. Kennedy... The moment that politics

:08:08.:08:10.

changed in America and around the world. The first TV debate.

:08:11.:08:14.

I should make it very clear that I do not think we're doing enough.

:08:15.:08:20.

56 years ago, it felt like a revolution, as personality became as

:08:21.:08:23.

important as theirs out, perception is important as reality, and a

:08:24.:08:27.

sweaty, old looking Richard Nixon bested by the handsome young John

:08:28.:08:33.

Kennedy. Over the years, the fascination has

:08:34.:08:37.

not dimmed, and it is expected the audience for Monday's debate will

:08:38.:08:40.

break all records, as people watch out for the gas. Gerald Ford never

:08:41.:08:43.

recovered from this in his 1980 encounter with Julie Carter.

:08:44.:08:49.

There is no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe, and there never will

:08:50.:08:54.

be under a Ford Administration. There are the easing is. 73-year-old

:08:55.:08:58.

Ronald Reagan, asked whether he was too old to run for president against

:08:59.:09:03.

the Democrat Walter Mondale, had this memorable line.

:09:04.:09:06.

I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit

:09:07.:09:10.

for political purposes might opponent's youth and inexperience.

:09:11.:09:16.

There are the put-downs. Senator Dan Quayle was blown away by this from

:09:17.:09:25.

Lloyd Benson in the 1988 VP debate. Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy.

:09:26.:09:29.

I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you

:09:30.:09:33.

are no Jack Kennedy. APPLAUSE

:09:34.:09:38.

there have been the failed attempt at intimidation, as Al Gore

:09:39.:09:41.

discovered. But can you get things done?

:09:42.:09:49.

And I believe I can. The big moments in US politics have

:09:50.:09:53.

all been emotional and visual, how Kennedy and Nixon looked, how

:09:54.:09:57.

Reagan's seemed at ease and Jimmy Carter did not, how Rick Perry

:09:58.:10:00.

looked when he made an error, and that is why the war among the former

:10:01.:10:05.

speech writers is, if you want to know who is going to be seen as

:10:06.:10:08.

winner or loser, you watch this thing with the sound turned off.

:10:09.:10:12.

So, can you win the White House off the back of a great performance in a

:10:13.:10:16.

TV debate? Probably not. But could you lose it by doing badly? Will

:10:17.:10:21.

most certainly, and that is why the stakes are so high for these two

:10:22.:10:26.

unpopular candidates, and whether TV audience promises to be huge.

:10:27.:10:32.

Let's get more about this coming debate. We can speak to Todd Graham,

:10:33.:10:40.

the director of debate at Southern Illinois University. We were just

:10:41.:10:43.

watching their some of the highs and lows of previous debates in history.

:10:44.:10:48.

What do you think we can expect from this one?

:10:49.:10:50.

We can expect nothing like any debate we have seen before. I know

:10:51.:10:54.

people say that about just every event, because they hype up

:10:55.:10:58.

everything, but seriously, this is not a regular presidential general

:10:59.:11:02.

election debate, because Donald Trump simply isn't a normal debater.

:11:03.:11:07.

Hillary Clinton, sure. We have seen tonnes of types like her before. She

:11:08.:11:11.

is pretty good debate, she understands policy, so that was just

:11:12.:11:14.

her and some other random Republican on stage, it would be fairly normal.

:11:15.:11:19.

This one is not going to be so much. So what would your advice be,

:11:20.:11:26.

therefore, to Hillary Clinton? My first piece of advice is to keep

:11:27.:11:31.

her answers shorter. I watched in all eight of their previous debates,

:11:32.:11:35.

when she was doing the Democratic primary debates. Her answers seemed

:11:36.:11:40.

to ramble go over time. The problem with this is, when you go over time,

:11:41.:11:44.

you don't get to your big finish. You have a really good point to me,

:11:45.:11:47.

but you are running over time, you are running over the buzzer, you are

:11:48.:11:53.

running of the moderators, and she needs to keep her answers short and

:11:54.:11:57.

succinct, and if she do that, she will come across very, very well.

:11:58.:12:03.

One of Hillary Clinton's strength is her experience, of course. Do you

:12:04.:12:07.

think Donald Trump will suffer in this area?

:12:08.:12:09.

Yes, that is main weakness. He doesn't understand current policy.

:12:10.:12:16.

You know things are bad when you are offered $10 million. Mark Cuban

:12:17.:12:19.

offer Donald Trump $10 million if he would simply let Mark Cuban ask him

:12:20.:12:24.

about policy for four hours straight. So the perception, whether

:12:25.:12:30.

it is real or not, and it is fairly real, is that Donald Trump does not

:12:31.:12:34.

know policy, still hasn't learned it to this day, so people are hoping to

:12:35.:12:37.

see a stack distance between he and Hillary Clinton on that stage.

:12:38.:12:42.

So, if you had to put your money on one candidate, which would be for

:12:43.:12:45.

the first debate? I will be honest with you, the only

:12:46.:12:50.

money that I have put on candidates is the under so far in the over/

:12:51.:12:55.

under. A friend at me that Trump would wait at least 45 minutes until

:12:56.:13:01.

he started the personal, and I B and add 45 minutes. So that is my only

:13:02.:13:06.

prediction, Donald Trump will be presidential for about 30 minutes

:13:07.:13:09.

and then start to get nastier. Todd Graham, director debate at

:13:10.:13:12.

Southern Illinois University, thanks for being with us.

:13:13.:13:16.

You can watch the full coverage of that first presidential debate here

:13:17.:13:20.

on BBC News. We will have analysis and budge more. That will be on

:13:21.:13:26.

Tuesday, the 27th of September. The debate is due to start at 1am GMT.

:13:27.:13:31.

Stay with us here on BBC News. Still to come, one of the brightest

:13:32.:13:37.

young stars in US baseball, Jose Fonte and there is, is killed in a

:13:38.:13:38.

boating accident. Bat Fernandez. Ben Johnson, the fastest man on

:13:39.:13:49.

Earth, is flying home to Canada in disgrace.

:13:50.:13:52.

All athletes should be clean going into a game. I'm just happy that

:13:53.:13:55.

justice is served. It is a simple fact that this

:13:56.:13:58.

morning these people were in their homes. Tonight, those homes have

:13:59.:14:01.

been burned down a Serbian soldiers and police.

:14:02.:14:08.

All the Taliban positions along here have been strengthened, presumably

:14:09.:14:16.

in case the Americans invade. It's no use having a secret service

:14:17.:14:20.

which cannot preserve its own secrets against the world, so the

:14:21.:14:24.

British government has no option but to continue this action, and even

:14:25.:14:27.

after any adverse judgment in Australia.

:14:28.:14:32.

Concorde had crossed the Atlantic faster than any plane ever before,

:14:33.:14:34.

breaking the record by six minutes. This is BBC world News Today. Here

:14:35.:14:51.

are the latest headlines. US ambassador to the United Nations

:14:52.:14:55.

Samantha Power as accuse Russia telling outright lies about its

:14:56.:15:03.

actions in Syria. China's switches on the world's most powerful

:15:04.:15:06.

telescope, which is already received information from a star more than a

:15:07.:15:08.

thousand light years away. Let's stay with that story. China

:15:09.:15:12.

has officially switched on the world's largest radio telescope,

:15:13.:15:18.

which is already received his first signals from a star more than a

:15:19.:15:22.

thousand light years away. It lies in the province of Gweijo. 8 million

:15:23.:15:27.

people will move to make whether the project.

:15:28.:15:32.

In the remark mountains of south-west China, the world's

:15:33.:15:37.

largest radio telescope has been built in a vast natural crater, and

:15:38.:15:42.

it has begun an intensive testing phase. Its size means the dish is

:15:43.:15:45.

able to gather huge amounts of information from space, helping

:15:46.:15:50.

scientists to see deeper into the universe than ever before. At a

:15:51.:15:56.

ceremony led by China's Vice Brehm near to mark the completion of the

:15:57.:16:00.

structure, a message of congratulations was read out from

:16:01.:16:05.

President Xi Jin Ping. He sees the facility as a vital part of China's

:16:06.:16:08.

drive to become a science powerhouse. It will now take a

:16:09.:16:13.

further three years to calibrate the instrument so it can become fully

:16:14.:16:17.

operational, but the first signals from space have already been

:16:18.:16:21.

received. This radio telescope measures 500 metres across, the size

:16:22.:16:27.

of 30 soccer pitches. It dwarfs all rivals. The Paris -- Arecibo

:16:28.:16:38.

observatory is only half as wide and with less sensitivity. China's

:16:39.:16:42.

telescope can listen to waves emitted from across the cosmos. It

:16:43.:16:45.

will help us to see the first stars and galaxies and hunt for signs of

:16:46.:16:49.

extraterrestrial life. It is a magnificent piece of work be

:16:50.:16:52.

Chinese colleagues have put together. It is a state-of-the-art

:16:53.:16:58.

machine. It is huge. It is incredibly huge. They have done it

:16:59.:17:03.

in record time, really, and it is a fantastic achievement. It gives our

:17:04.:17:08.

Chinese colleagues a top instrument to participate in what we call radio

:17:09.:17:16.

astronomy. The structure took the Chinese just five years to build,

:17:17.:17:20.

and at a cost of $180 million. It is part of the country's

:17:21.:17:25.

unprecedented investment in science, that is on the verge of outstripping

:17:26.:17:29.

even the United States. China hopes the super-size project

:17:30.:17:36.

could transfer emitted -- transform it into a world science leader.

:17:37.:17:40.

Well-known Jordanian writer has been shot dead outside a court in central

:17:41.:17:45.

and man -- home and, where he was due to be tried for offending Islam.

:17:46.:17:50.

He was charged after he shared a controversial cartoon on social

:17:51.:17:51.

media. Alan Johnston reports. Blood on the steps of Jordan's

:17:52.:18:01.

highest court. B ahid Nahid Hat was about to enter the building when a

:18:02.:18:05.

gunman shot him at close range. The attacker was immediately arrested.

:18:06.:18:09.

-- to macro. Mr Hata, a Christian, was about to be tried in this place

:18:10.:18:15.

for causing religious offence. He got into trouble when he shared a

:18:16.:18:19.

cartoon on Facebook which showed a man in heaven in bed with women and

:18:20.:18:25.

asking God for a drink. Mr Hata said it merely sought to mark the view

:18:26.:18:30.

that Jihadi John extremists have the after life. -- to mock the view. But

:18:31.:18:35.

many Muslims here would have been deeply offended by the cartoon.

:18:36.:18:39.

Someone was angry enough to kill in response to it.

:18:40.:18:44.

After the shooting, one of Mr Hata's friends said that his death should

:18:45.:18:50.

serve as a warning of the strength of extremist influences in the

:18:51.:18:56.

nation. TRANSLATION: The Jordanian people must realise the seriousness

:18:57.:18:58.

of this issue. They must unite to fight against the

:18:59.:19:03.

unjust forces that accuse others of being apostates. The government must

:19:04.:19:07.

take a stern stance towards these dark forces.

:19:08.:19:15.

Mr Hata's family says the authorities bear responsibility for

:19:16.:19:18.

what happened here. They believe a decision to put the right on trial

:19:19.:19:20.

helped incite the public against him.

:19:21.:19:25.

That gets in sport for you. I, Stephen. We're going to start

:19:26.:19:33.

with the Premier League. Southampton have moved into the top half by

:19:34.:19:38.

winning Sunday's only game 3-0 at West Ham. Goals from Charlie Austin,

:19:39.:19:43.

Dusan Tadic and James Ward-Prowse made it four wins in four without

:19:44.:19:47.

conceding a goal for the Saints in all competitions. But West Ham have

:19:48.:19:51.

lost five of their first six league games for the first time in the

:19:52.:19:53.

top-flight season, and they remain in the bottom three.

:19:54.:19:59.

In the second half, we were better. But it was down to the time to

:20:00.:20:08.

correct, and they save for the future, it is very good work to see

:20:09.:20:12.

the difference between the first half and the second half.

:20:13.:20:15.

We are not the first, we are not the last team that is in this situation.

:20:16.:20:22.

In the premiership, or in any league at this level, and it is... Most of

:20:23.:20:28.

it is about confidence, because the guys are the same players that were

:20:29.:20:35.

doing things last year. Now, a season where Manchester City

:20:36.:20:39.

under their new manager Pep Guardiola face huge expectations in

:20:40.:20:44.

terms of winning silverware, and the club's women have shown the man the

:20:45.:20:47.

way by winning the Super League for the first time. City needed just to

:20:48.:20:50.

avoid defeat against the only side who could still catch them, Chelsea,

:20:51.:20:55.

and they clinched the maiden title in style, winning the match 2-0

:20:56.:20:59.

thanks to a first half own goal and a penalty in the second half from

:21:00.:21:04.
