and around the world. I'm Alpa Patel.

:00:00.:00:09.

The headlines: A quarter of a million Syrians under

:00:10.:00:11.

siege in rebel-held Aleppo and just six hospitals operational

:00:12.:00:15.

after the largest is hit by fresh airstrikes.

:00:16.:00:25.

A doctor films the destruction for the BBC.

:00:26.:00:28.

One international charity tells us the aim is to destroy healthcare

:00:29.:00:30.

This is actually the third attack on the hospital within a week.

:00:31.:00:35.

This is ongoing destruction of the healthcare

are left for the whole area. Outside, the force of

American Medical Society. He was born and raised in Alabama

himself. Doctors there have been telling him about what happened when

:04:50.:04:54.

the hospital were hit. This is an ongoing destruction of the health

:04:55.:04:59.

care system inside Aleppo. We all agree at this time that the aim is

:05:00.:05:02.

to paralyse the health care structure and to achieve two goals,

:05:03.:05:08.

the first is to threaten, pushed civil society to collapse and

:05:09.:05:14.

displaced people out of the city of Aleppo. The second target is to

:05:15.:05:18.

punish the civilians by abandoning any access to health care at this

:05:19.:05:23.

time. Do you believe these are targeted attacks because as you say,

:05:24.:05:28.

this is the third attack on this hospital, and other was attacked

:05:29.:05:33.

early in the week as well? I think those are deliberate attacks on

:05:34.:05:37.

those hospitals. And fortunately, as you are well aware, this ongoing

:05:38.:05:41.

debate right now about who we know that they are hospitals? Were they

:05:42.:05:49.

there before 2011? Whom are they serving? Let me start by describing

:05:50.:05:52.

the landscape of what those hospitals do. On a regular day, we

:05:53.:05:58.

see more children and women more than we see former cases, and those

:05:59.:06:03.

two major hospitals that were attacked and destroyed last week.

:06:04.:06:08.

Those services right now are completely paralysed because we

:06:09.:06:12.

don't have any capacity to provide the children and women already in

:06:13.:06:15.

basis, including pregnancies and deliveries and so on. The second

:06:16.:06:23.

fact is those hospitals were registered before the year 2011.

:06:24.:06:28.

They are known medical facilities. Let's get some other

:06:29.:06:41.

stories for you. In Egypt - gunmen have killed

:06:42.:06:42.

at least five police officers The Interior Ministry

:06:43.:06:45.

said attackers sprayed their police car with bullets -

:06:46.:06:47.

as they drove through The killings came just days

:06:48.:06:50.

after three officers and their driver were shot

:06:51.:06:53.

dead in the same city. Protests have been taking place

:06:54.:06:55.

in the Polish capital, Warsaw, against government plans

:06:56.:06:58.

for a near total ban on abortion. The demo comes a week after Poland's

:06:59.:07:00.

parliament said it plans to only allow abortions -

:07:01.:07:03.

if the mother's life is at risk. The Council of Europe described

:07:04.:07:05.

the proposals as serious Months of political deadlock

:07:06.:07:08.

in Spain could be coming to an end, after the leader of the main

:07:09.:07:11.

opposition party was ousted. Pedro Sanchez, who leads

:07:12.:07:14.

to the Socialist party, has blocked attempts by the acting

:07:15.:07:16.

prime minister to form a government. Spain has had two general elections

:07:17.:07:19.

since December, but no party has gained enough support

:07:20.:07:22.

to form a government. The strongest Atlantic hurricane

:07:23.:07:29.

in almost a decade - is moving across the Caribbean Sea

:07:30.:07:32.

towards Jamaica. Hurricane Matthew had strengthened

:07:33.:07:34.

to a rare Category Five - the highest level storm -

:07:35.:07:37.

but it has now downgraded Our reporter, Nick Davis

:07:38.:07:43.

is in Kingston. He says people there are getting

:07:44.:07:46.

ready for the worst. Lots of people are going out, making

:07:47.:07:58.

sure they've got cooking gas, petrol for their vehicles, making sure they

:07:59.:08:02.

have everything they need because they know it will take a certain

:08:03.:08:05.

amount of time for the government to be able to ramp up and be able to

:08:06.:08:11.

help everybody who needs it everybody is really now aware of how

:08:12.:08:15.

serious this storm is and what devastation it could cause. Remember

:08:16.:08:20.

Ivan in 1988 was a category three, and it took years and years to get

:08:21.:08:26.

the country recovered from that. The countries in a better position now

:08:27.:08:31.

but even so, people that memory. People are saying, if this is a

:08:32.:08:36.

category four, we could be in for some very rough days.

:08:37.:08:39.

With me now is BBC weather presenter, Jay Wynne.

:08:40.:08:41.

We were hearing about the impact on people in Jamaica but where is this

:08:42.:08:51.

storm headed? It's been moving west on the south coast of America -- on

:08:52.:08:56.

the coast of South America. It is heading towards the Jamaica Channel,

:08:57.:09:01.

an area of water between Jamaica and Haiti. It looks like it will go

:09:02.:09:06.

through the Jamaica Channel, then northwards into southern Cuba, and

:09:07.:09:09.

then northwards into the Bahamas. You can see it on the satellite

:09:10.:09:16.

sequence. It is going to start turning northwards. It is a very

:09:17.:09:20.

powerful storm, category four, top end of what you can achieve.

:09:21.:09:25.

Category four or five, only a few miles of difference in the wind

:09:26.:09:29.

speed. It was the fourth class track, heading towards Jamaica,

:09:30.:09:35.

Haiti, there will be numerous multiple hazards associated with

:09:36.:09:42.

this. Gusts of wind, huge rainfall, up to two feet of wine over a very

:09:43.:09:52.

large area. -- two feet of rain. Dangerous seas with the huge storm

:09:53.:09:57.

surge. People are already taking action to get out of the worst of

:09:58.:10:05.

the conditions. This storm has grown quickly, hazards court forecasters

:10:06.:10:12.

aware? A little bit, it was a category two yesterday and this

:10:13.:10:15.

afternoon it had gone back to a category five, and now just below

:10:16.:10:20.

five. It did almost develop exclusively overnight so it was a

:10:21.:10:23.

little bit unexpected but it was always going to turn into a major

:10:24.:10:28.

storm, but I didn't think it would be a category five. What is the

:10:29.:10:32.

difference between a category five and a category for? Category five,

:10:33.:10:41.

100 60 mph, even if category four is 155 mph, there is not much

:10:42.:10:44.

difference. Pope Francis, who's on a visit

:10:45.:10:48.

to Georgia, has celebrated mass in a largely empty sports stadium

:10:49.:10:51.

after the local Orthodox Christian church advised its followers not

:10:52.:10:53.

to take part in Roman Catholic The vast majority of population

:10:54.:10:56.

in Georgia are Orthodox Christians, and some Orthodox priests have been

:10:57.:10:59.

protesting against the Papal visit. Earlier, the BBC's Rayhan Demytrie

:11:00.:11:02.

sent this report from Outside the football stadium where

:11:03.:11:19.

Pope Francis is delivering an open mass, there is a heavy police

:11:20.:11:23.

presence and a protest by Orthodox priests and their supporters. The

:11:24.:11:28.

reasons why these Orthodox priests are protesting our manyfold and data

:11:29.:11:34.

back to the 11th century split between the Orthodox and Catholic

:11:35.:11:39.

churches. But to put it simply, what they are unhappy about in particular

:11:40.:11:43.

today, they consider that the Pope here is to convert Orthodox into

:11:44.:11:56.

cost policies. -- into Catholicism. Inside the stadium, the Pope has

:11:57.:12:00.

spoken about peace and love. He delivered this open-air Mass for

:12:01.:12:06.

Georgia's small Catholic community. The vast population here are

:12:07.:12:11.

Orthodox Christians but there are also religious minorities. It is

:12:12.:12:17.

important that the Pope sees this in a small country. There is not such a

:12:18.:12:24.

big Paris. I think it is a blessing for Georgia as well to have the Pope

:12:25.:12:29.

here for the second time in 16 years. It is exciting and this mass

:12:30.:12:33.

was wonderful and now we are going to take holy Communion from the

:12:34.:12:34.

Pope. South Korea's President,

:12:35.:12:37.

Park Geun-hye, has called on North Koreans to abandon

:12:38.:12:39.

their country and defect. Speaking at an event

:12:40.:12:41.

to mark Armed Forces day, she said she was well aware

:12:42.:12:43.

of the gruesome realities of everyday life north

:12:44.:12:45.

of the border, and told North Koreans they could make

:12:46.:12:48.

a fresh start in the free South. A North Korean soldier defected

:12:49.:12:51.

by walking across the two countries' heavily fortified

:12:52.:12:53.

border on Thursday. Ms Park also warned Pyongyang

about its nuclear tests, saying Stay with us on BBC

One man has died after a coach taking Rangers football fans

:13:26.:13:28.

Some of the details are still a virgin about this crash. It happened

board, they were on their way to the Rangers and Partick Thistle match at

:13:47.:13:52.

the Ibrox. We have a statement from Scotland Fire and Rescue Service who

:13:53.:13:56.

said when they arrived on the scene, there were an umber of people still

:13:57.:13:59.

inside the coach and a number of people walking wounded. The BBC

:14:00.:14:01.

colleagues reported metal cutters were being used on the bus this

:14:02.:14:06.

afternoon. 18 people were taken to hospital, three of whom were in a

:14:07.:14:10.

serious condition. This includes seven men under the age of 20 years

:14:11.:14:16.

old, three men and three women aged between 30 and 59 and five men over

:14:17.:14:19.

the age of 60. Police collar and have also confirmed -- police

:14:20.:14:27.

Scotland have also confirmed... This is BBC World News. The latest

:14:28.:14:32.

headlines. An air raid on the rebel-held eastern part of the city

:14:33.:14:36.

of Aleppo is reported to have had the largest hospital in the area for

:14:37.:14:42.

the third time in a week. Hurricane Matthew, the strongest Atlantic

:14:43.:14:46.

storm in almost a decade is heading towards Jamaica and Cuba with winds

:14:47.:14:52.

reaching 230: that is an hour. Latest figures seen by the BBC show

:14:53.:14:58.

that at least 1000 refugees and migrants each week are still

:14:59.:15:02.

attempting to reach the EU through Serbia and the Balkans.

:15:03.:15:06.

That's despite claims by the President of the European

:15:07.:15:08.

Council Donald Tusk that migrant flows along the route had come

:15:09.:15:11.

For this special report, our Europe Correspondent Damian

:15:12.:15:14.

Grammaticas travelled to Serbia and Greece.

:15:15.:15:15.

He found that most of the refugees reaching Serbia now,

:15:16.:15:18.

are coming with the help of people smugglers.

:15:19.:15:25.

This is how they are getting into Europe now.

:15:26.:15:28.

Afghan refugees clinging to the bottom of the train,

:15:29.:15:30.

20 hours they spent there, among them this man.

:15:31.:15:39.

Caught by police, he's now in Serbia.

:15:40.:15:50.

He had spent months trapped in Greece, passing the time teaching

:15:51.:15:53.

Englsh to other refugees, determined not to go

:15:54.:15:56.

back to Afghanistan, too afraid after the Taliban

:15:57.:16:00.

The Taliban took one of my friends, they searched his pockets,

:16:01.:16:15.

they found evidence that he was a translator for the Americans.

:16:16.:16:20.

Europe's refugee crisis has not gone away.

:16:21.:16:23.

So Serbia, along with Greece, has become the new staging

:16:24.:16:30.

The army has been sent to try to secure Serbia's borders

:16:31.:16:37.

but up to 200 refugees a day are being discovered.

:16:38.:16:40.

Smuggling is now so lucrative, we were told, other forms of crime

:16:41.:16:44.

TRANSLATION: Our information is refugees pay from 800

:16:45.:16:51.

In Greece, thousands are stuck in grim conditions,

:16:52.:17:06.

Several hundred refugees had disappeared from this camp

:17:07.:17:13.

These children and their mother were from Damascus.

:17:14.:17:19.

Anyone who can afford it uses a smuggler, she says.

:17:20.:17:22.

If you have money, you go in with the Mafia.

:17:23.:17:25.

This is the route the refugees have been taking, from Greece

:17:26.:17:35.

through Macedonia, over the mountains, eventually

:17:36.:17:38.

Governments say closing the borders has stopped the flows,

:17:39.:17:44.

but it seems that refugees are still making it through,

:17:45.:17:47.

Further north in Serbia, they're starting to back up.

:17:48.:17:55.

Borders may be tightening, but the dream of Europe isn't

:17:56.:17:59.

fading, just turning into an organised, underground racket.

:18:00.:18:15.

Europe have continued their fight back on the second day

:18:16.:18:19.

of the Ryder Cup at the Hazeltine golf club in Minnesota.

:18:20.:18:21.

You'll remember that the Europeans lost the first four foursomes

:18:22.:18:24.

matches at the start of the first day but they have trimmed

:18:25.:18:33.

the United Staes lead to just one point.

:18:34.:18:35.

into the afternoon fourballs and we can go live to our reporter

:18:36.:18:39.

Nick Marshall McCormack at the Hazeltine golf club,

:18:40.:18:46.

All this for a little gold cup. It is all about national pride. There

:18:47.:18:55.

is such further out behind me. You can hear the brawls and the groans

:18:56.:19:03.

of the US crowd. They started 4-1 up and Europe has launched an almighty

:19:04.:19:07.

comeback. There is only one point in it. Rory McIlroy and Peter's are

:19:08.:19:15.

doing so well in their first match. They are full up. Danny Willett and

:19:16.:19:20.

Lee Westwood are one up against JB Holmes and Ryan Moore. USA, two reds

:19:21.:19:27.

on the ball, Mickelson and Kuchar are up. Patrick Reed and Jordan

:19:28.:19:31.

Speith, one up against Rose and Stenson. There was an enormous roar

:19:32.:19:37.

when read holding from the fairway. A brilliant shot. I've got the great

:19:38.:19:44.

map here of the pin positions. They are also tough this afternoon. They

:19:45.:19:47.

are really making the players work for every point. It has been a big

:19:48.:19:54.

turnaround so far. How did things go in the morning foursomes? The

:19:55.:20:00.

morning foursomes were level and what I wanted to bring your

:20:01.:20:05.

attention to was we bring a scorecard up from the morning

:20:06.:20:08.

sessions, the last match on your screen there, at half four Sergio

:20:09.:20:15.

Garcia and Cabrera-Bello. This was enormous void Europe because Jordan

:20:16.:20:23.

Speith and hat-trick read were 4-0 up and Cabrera-Bello and Garcia

:20:24.:20:26.

stuck together, the Spanish Armada we are calling it, they did so well

:20:27.:20:31.

to pull it back. In the early matches, Acle Roy and Thomas

:20:32.:20:44.

Pieters, what a match. Henrik Stenson and Matt Fitzpatrick went

:20:45.:20:49.

down three and two. And Justin Rose Chris Wood would also a debutante,

:20:50.:20:56.

one up against Jimmy Walker and Zach Johnson. United States could be

:20:57.:21:06.

increasing their lead. We moved to football now.

:21:07.:21:16.

The pressure has increased on the manager of Swansea City

:21:17.:21:18.

after his side lost 2-1 at home to Liverpool in the Premier

:21:19.:21:21.

Francesco Gudolin's men took the lead through Leroy Fer

:21:22.:21:24.

The pressure has increased on the manager of Swansea City

:21:25.:21:26.

after his side lost 2-1 at home to Liverpool in the Premier

:21:27.:21:29.

My position is clear for me. I work with my players. Week by week, day

:21:30.:21:46.

by day, it is not my problem. My problem is our table, it is not

:21:47.:21:50.

good. We deserve to have some points more in our table. But I think if

:21:51.:21:58.

our team play in this way, we have the possibility to turn the

:21:59.:21:59.

situation. Elsewhere Willian and Diego Costa

:22:00.:22:02.

scored as Chelsea won at Hull. Sunderland rescued a point after

:22:03.:22:04.

trailing at home to West Brom.. Dimitri Payet was on target

:22:05.:22:07.

as West Ham also came from behind to salvage a draw

:22:08.:22:10.

at home to Middlesbrough, and Watford drew 2-2

:22:11.:22:12.

at home to Bournemouth. The Formula One season

:22:13.:22:16.

continues in Malaysia and it's Lewis Hamilton,

:22:17.:22:19.

the World Champion, who will start from pole position in Sunday's race

:22:20.:22:21.

after dominating qualifying. Donald Trump is doing

:22:22.:22:24.

poorly in the polls The Trumpettes, a group of Trump

:22:25.:22:33.

supporters in Beverly Hills, The self-described "support group"

:22:34.:22:37.

for female Trump voters have spoken to the BBC about why

:22:38.:22:44.

they are voting for Trump. Lord, let us be a voice

:22:45.:23:04.

for the women of God, and women to speak forth today,

:23:05.:23:07.

and blessings be on us today in I'm Linda and I'm a Trumpette

:23:08.:23:10.

because I'm going to spread the good I say the Trumpette

:23:11.:23:16.

is the sounding of truth. I wasn't a Trumpette

:23:17.:23:23.

in the beginning, because I thought But, you know, he had that show,

:23:24.:23:30.

The Apprentice, and, with that, He had to say outlandish things

:23:31.:23:36.

to be popular. So, I think right now,

:23:37.:23:42.

we're starting to see the real Trump I think he is looking at cleaning
