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

:00:09.:00:10.

The United States has just announced it is suspending

:00:11.:00:16.

talks with Russia over a Syria peace deal.

:00:17.:00:19.

As the misery in Aleppo continues, the US accuses Russia of failing

:00:20.:00:22.

to meet its commitments under a ceasefire agreement.

:00:23.:00:26.

After Hungary votes against accepting more migrants,

:00:27.:00:28.

we'll speak live to the country's ambassador to the UK.

:00:29.:00:35.

Trump's tax details - does it show the man is a genius,

:00:36.:00:39.

Or could the revelations be a bombshell moment

:00:40.:00:42.

Kim Kardashian West is robbed at gunpoint in a Paris apartment,

:00:43.:00:49.

We start with breaking news from America where

:00:50.:01:12.

the State Department has just announced it's suspending talks

:01:13.:01:16.

with Russia on trying to end the violence in Syria.

:01:17.:01:30.

And it is not a shock. It is a recognition of reality. In recent

:01:31.:01:45.

weeks and months, mainly in the form of US Secretary of State John Kerry

:01:46.:01:50.

and his Russian counterpart, are trying to say, is there anyway to

:01:51.:01:56.

get racist nation of hostility, a truce, -- an end to the violence.

:01:57.:02:06.

There was an attempt to get some kind of ceasefire for if you days --

:02:07.:02:15.

a number of days after the deal was struck. But this did not continue,

:02:16.:02:24.

fighting on both sides. Now those talks have broken down, no attempt

:02:25.:02:32.

to try and reduce the ceasefire. If there were facilities, they said

:02:33.:02:38.

maybe we could get AIDS into these areas, if they were sustained

:02:39.:02:43.

hostility is, amazingly, the Russians and Americans -- get a help

:02:44.:02:54.

to these areas. The Russians and Americans were going to work

:02:55.:03:00.

together. They have been seeing, now there is no point talking. A

:03:01.:03:09.

statement today gave confirmation that talks have been suspended.

:03:10.:03:14.

Russia it is said to have not lived up to their commitments. Unable or

:03:15.:03:22.

unwilling to ensure that the Syrian regime...

:03:23.:03:29.

Reports saying the White House spokesman saying that everyone buys

:03:30.:03:38.

like patients with Russia has run out. We see daily misery they are,

:03:39.:03:47.

what does that mean? If this is completely run into the ground, what

:03:48.:03:53.

happens now? Right now, the scale of the violence is such that the

:03:54.:03:58.

Americans do not believe, it is pointless they are saying. The

:03:59.:04:08.

intensified attacks against civilian areas, attacks against

:04:09.:04:11.

infrastructure including hospitals, attack on an aid convoy, in that

:04:12.:04:19.

context, there is little point having talks. It doesn't mean that

:04:20.:04:24.

can't happen in the future. You could see talks continuing if things

:04:25.:04:31.

changed on the ground. The Americans are thinking, look, this needs to

:04:32.:04:32.

stop. Using German occasions to... The knock on from Syria, apart from

:04:33.:04:57.

the misery on the ground, is affecting other parts of the ground.

:04:58.:05:01.

The question about weather Europe should take more people from all the

:05:02.:05:07.

world us trouble spots, like Syria and other areas, that is causing

:05:08.:05:15.

political problems. This weekend, the people of fungi have said is now

:05:16.:05:18.

in a referendum. But the turnout was low -

:05:19.:05:31.

only 44% of voters took part - The opposition says no,

:05:32.:05:34.

but the Hungarian Prime minister, Viktor Orban, says he will ask

:05:35.:05:38.

parliament to change the constitution in order

:05:39.:05:40.

to accept the result. For the EU, the president

:05:41.:05:44.

of the parliament has accused Hungary of playing "a dangerous

:05:45.:05:48.

game" by attacking EU treaties. The AdSense for domestic reasons,

:05:49.:06:07.

against the European Union, of the legal legislation in the European

:06:08.:06:13.

Union fails. Overwhelming majority of Hyperion is by other staining

:06:14.:06:18.

from the vote voted against the attempts of the Government. We are

:06:19.:06:23.

grateful to the Hungarian people who've refused. The proposal.

:06:24.:06:33.

Britain is also promising to get tough on immigration.

:06:34.:06:52.

Is this results going to the balance? Not the full measure of

:06:53.:07:02.

people voted in this referendum in Hungary. Hungary took an important

:07:03.:07:12.

historic decision last night. 3.3 million voted for a no answer. It is

:07:13.:07:23.

important to know that when our country entered the European Union

:07:24.:07:28.

there was another referendum. Then, there was less vote supporting the

:07:29.:07:33.

entry to the European Union. It is a very important vote that has taken

:07:34.:07:38.

place now. It is an overwhelming and strong show of support for the

:07:39.:07:44.

Government to act. Does it mean that an unfair burden will be placed on

:07:45.:07:51.

Italy and Greece? You are saying, look, we will not do anything to

:07:52.:07:58.

help? I couldn't hear the question. Is it not unfair of Hungary to say,

:07:59.:08:05.

we are going to leave the problem of migrants to Italy and Greece? Well,

:08:06.:08:17.

we have been a very bold. We have been decisive on putting up

:08:18.:08:25.

directions on the Balkan countries, Serbia and Croatia, stopping the

:08:26.:08:34.

legal migrants. It does not mean our borders are closed. Our borders are

:08:35.:08:37.

ready to accept people through the open gate. Defences are there to

:08:38.:08:46.

stop the illegal migration. Do you think that Europe ayes hold policy

:08:47.:08:51.

on migration can keep going as it is? What should happen now?

:08:52.:09:00.

Concerning the referendum, there will be, what should happen next,

:09:01.:09:06.

the Government is proposing legal steps. It is continuing its fight

:09:07.:09:12.

against the not well working quota system. A year ago, we started to

:09:13.:09:20.

talk about this. Now, more and more countries are adopting this

:09:21.:09:25.

approach. The referendum result is enough for the Government to act

:09:26.:09:33.

legally. In terms of the Constitution, this is an important

:09:34.:09:38.

step to go forward and ensure decisions will be made about

US TV reality star Kim Kardashian has been robbed at gun point

:16:17.:16:19.

of jewellery worth over $10 million dollars while staying

:16:20.:16:21.

It included a ring worth more than $4 million.

Our correspondent Amy Cole has this report.

Her mega-rich lifestyle and famous family make her a target.

In the early hours of this morning Kim Kardashian was robbed

:16:34.:16:36.

at gunpoint at this luxury residence in Paris.

:16:37.:16:39.

It's understood a nightwatchman was handcuffed and five men dressed

:16:40.:16:41.

as police wearing masks stormed her apartment

:16:42.:16:46.

and held her at gunpoint before ransacking it and fleeing.

:16:47.:16:48.

She was left tied up in the bathroom.

:16:49.:16:54.

Kim's husband, rapper Kanye West, was on stage in New York at the time

:16:55.:17:01.

This was actress Salma Hayek's reaction.

The thieves are said to have stolen mostly jewellery worth

days, especially for people like herself.

We are always on the lookout for potential risks.

:17:36.:17:41.

Kim stayed quiet on social media but TV host James Corden has berated

:17:42.:17:44.

It's not known whether the star's two children

A spokesperson said Kim was left badly shaken

That's how some of his Republican allies have described him,

:18:07.:18:22.

defending the Presidential nominee against claims he hasn't paid

:18:23.:18:24.

An article in the New York Times suggested that, by declaring huge

:18:25.:18:28.

business losses in the 1990s, Donald Trump avoided paying taxes.

:18:29.:18:31.

His campaign team are refusing to confirm or deny the report,

Nothing for veterans are a military -- children to go to college. He has

:19:11.:19:21.

been talking down America. He makes disparaging comments. He calls our

:19:22.:19:27.

military a disaster. It is not, but it might have been if everyone else

:19:28.:19:34.

failed to pay taxes to support our brave men and women in uniform. I

saw a newspaper article, a gentleman named Steve who owns the Class City

about this country and what it is about. Former Mayor of New York has

:20:12.:20:20.

also been speaking about the tax question. He is a genius. He took

:20:21.:20:27.

advantage of something that could have saved his enterprise. He came

:20:28.:20:34.

back. When's the Church and Steve jobs talk about that also. Great men

:21:20.:21:30.

at five miles per hour. The rain and flooding is going to get worse. Dark

:21:31.:21:38.

ominous storm clouds. Matthew was a category five storm. It has weakened

:21:39.:21:44.

a little, but it is one of the most powerful hurricanes to hit the

:21:45.:21:49.

Caribbean in years, winds over 45 miles an hour. Cuba lies in its

path. Tourists are trying to make the most of their holidays despite

:22:53.:23:04.

We have been hearing from Hillary Clinton. This is a big New York

:23:05.:23:12.

Times story. How is it playing at there? It has been cold a

:23:13.:23:20.

blockbuster. It is what political journalists are talking about all

:23:21.:23:25.

the time. A window into Donald Trump's taxes. Sheds light on his

:23:26.:23:32.

finances at the time. Almost $1 billion loss in that one year. That

:23:33.:23:38.

allows him to stretch out, not paying any kind of federal income

:23:39.:23:46.

taxes. His perception that he is a great businessmen is dented because

:23:47.:23:50.

all of a sudden people are saying, well, he lost all that money, how

:23:51.:24:00.

can he be great? The also criticised Barack Obama for paying too little

:24:01.:24:10.

taxes. Americans like to see rich people pay taxes. They know there

:24:11.:24:17.

are loopholes. It is annoying to them for him not paying taxes for an

:24:18.:24:23.

extended length of time. The emphasis is that he has earned a lot

:24:24.:24:28.

of money. At the same time, they have been a lot of facts and

:24:29.:24:34.

misappropriation of the truth. Donald Trump us support has held up.

:24:35.:24:40.

When his key in the polls with a couple of debates to go? He has a

:24:41.:24:50.

solid base of supporters, high 30s and low 40s sticking with him.

:24:51.:24:56.

Daylight opening up. I don't think the tax story has really had an

:24:57.:25:06.

impact yet. But a week of Donald Trump stumbling over himself on the

issue of his past criticism of the beauty pageant contestants. And his

been very strong of late. America has suspended cooperation on the

Syria ceasefire talks. Russia regrets the American decision to

suspend cooperation on the ceasefire. The Russian Foreign

Ministry have been cited with that. A breakdown of talks, we will bring
