Kim Kardashian West is robbed at gunpoint in a Paris apartment,
We start with breaking news from America where
the State Department has just announced it's suspending talks
with Russia on trying to end the violence in Syria.
And it is not a shock. It is a recognition of reality. In recent
weeks and months, mainly in the form of US Secretary of State John Kerry
and his Russian counterpart, are trying to say, is there anyway to
get racist nation of hostility, a truce, -- an end to the violence.
There was an attempt to get some kind of ceasefire for if you days --
a number of days after the deal was struck. But this did not continue,
fighting on both sides. Now those talks have broken down, no attempt
to try and reduce the ceasefire. If there were facilities, they said
maybe we could get AIDS into these areas, if they were sustained
hostility is, amazingly, the Russians and Americans -- get a help
to these areas. The Russians and Americans were going to work
together. They have been seeing, now there is no point talking. A
statement today gave confirmation that talks have been suspended.
Russia it is said to have not lived up to their commitments. Unable or
unwilling to ensure that the Syrian regime...
Reports saying the White House spokesman saying that everyone buys
like patients with Russia has run out. We see daily misery they are,
what does that mean? If this is completely run into the ground, what
happens now? Right now, the scale of the violence is such that the
Americans do not believe, it is pointless they are saying. The
intensified attacks against civilian areas, attacks against
infrastructure including hospitals, attack on an aid convoy, in that
context, there is little point having talks. It doesn't mean that
can't happen in the future. You could see talks continuing if things
changed on the ground. The Americans are thinking, look, this needs to
stop. Using German occasions to... The knock on from Syria, apart from
the misery on the ground, is affecting other parts of the ground.
The question about weather Europe should take more people from all the
world us trouble spots, like Syria and other areas, that is causing
political problems. This weekend, the people of fungi have said is now
in a referendum. But the turnout was low -
only 44% of voters took part - The opposition says no,
but the Hungarian Prime minister, Viktor Orban, says he will ask
parliament to change the constitution in order
to accept the result. For the EU, the president
of the parliament has accused Hungary of playing "a dangerous
game" by attacking EU treaties. The AdSense for domestic reasons,
against the European Union, of the legal legislation in the European
Union fails. Overwhelming majority of Hyperion is by other staining
from the vote voted against the attempts of the Government. We are
grateful to the Hungarian people who've refused. The proposal.
Britain is also promising to get tough on immigration.
Is this results going to the balance? Not the full measure of
people voted in this referendum in Hungary. Hungary took an important
historic decision last night. 3.3 million voted for a no answer. It is
important to know that when our country entered the European Union
there was another referendum. Then, there was less vote supporting the
entry to the European Union. It is a very important vote that has taken
place now. It is an overwhelming and strong show of support for the
Government to act. Does it mean that an unfair burden will be placed on
Italy and Greece? You are saying, look, we will not do anything to
help? I couldn't hear the question. Is it not unfair of Hungary to say,
we are going to leave the problem of migrants to Italy and Greece? Well,
we have been a very bold. We have been decisive on putting up
directions on the Balkan countries, Serbia and Croatia, stopping the
legal migrants. It does not mean our borders are closed. Our borders are
ready to accept people through the open gate. Defences are there to
stop the illegal migration. Do you think that Europe ayes hold policy
on migration can keep going as it is? What should happen now?
Concerning the referendum, there will be, what should happen next,
the Government is proposing legal steps. It is continuing its fight
against the not well working quota system. A year ago, we started to
talk about this. Now, more and more countries are adopting this
approach. The referendum result is enough for the Government to act
legally. In terms of the Constitution, this is an important
step to go forward and ensure decisions will be made about
Algerians in the depressed in... And not in Brussels. -- treble.
Budapest. As Europe tries to work out
what to do, the migrant crisis continues even as the weather starts
to get colder. This year, 3500 people have died
or been reported missing. More than 600 children have drowned
- that's about two Reeta Chakrabarti joined one rescue
mission, led by the charity Scanning the horizon in the early
morning, when the sea The migrant boat set out at night
so the owners won't be caught. A vessel comes into view with around
100 on board. There is no orange to be seen,
meaning no life jackets. The team scrambles to
get the small rescue They're given life jackets
to make them safe. Over 300,000 people reached Europe
across this sea, this year. Over 3000 have died doing so,
or been reported missing. The people have been
quite calm until now, but they are quite clearly getting
a bit agitated and the rescuers are having to tell them to sit down,
stay calm and they These people will have been
travelling for several hours now, they have left the Libyan
coast in the darkness, unclear if they're ever
going to reach their destination. There are smiles, relief,
but no celebration. The group is entirely male
and mostly from West Africa. This young man is among them,
he didn't want to be identified. He's come from the Ivory Coast,
which he left four years He says he's experienced kidnap
and forced labour and hopes TRANSLATION: We are all human
beings, what ever the colour We don't do this because we really
want to, we do this If only people would welcome
us because we're not The conditions in which we find
ourselves are really unfavourable. And now there is effectively
a second rescue going on. There is another humanitarian
mission ship over there. It's already transporting migrants,
and about 100 of them are being transferred from that ship
to this one. There are women this time,
some of them looking shattered The majority of these
people are from Somalia. One is this 16-year-old girl,
escaping a forced marriage. She's been travelling for ten months
and wants to study medicine Italy, where the boat is heading
will let her stay in till she's 18. If you don't like me,
maybe you will have I may be different from others,
or I may be the same. The flimsy vessels that deliver
people here are destroyed by the rescuers so it
can't be reused. As for their occupants,
they face an uncertain future in a Europe uncertain
that it wants them. Reeta Chakrabarti, BBC News off
the Libyan coast. Colombia's Government is in damage
control after voters unexpectedly rejected a peace deal it had struck
with the FARC rebel group. 50.2% of the people that took part
in the referendum chose More concerning for the Government
though was the fact that only 38% of eligible voters
actually turned out. And take a look at this map put out
by Kings College London researcher It shows areas in green that voted
yes, and orange that voted no. Many of the areas affected
by the conflict voted Based in the countryside, it was a
rebellion against the country. FARC has come against serious opposition
by the military. After four years of negotiations, the Colombian
president and rebel leaders signed a peace deal a week a goal.
Celebrations have been shot lived. A referendum has been cold to ratify
the agreement. By the narrowest of margins, the peace agreement has
been rejected. TRANSLATION: That these we want is
possible and can be strengthened from this situation -- this piece
that we want. I want to leave a better country for our children. Now
the Government must address concerns of those who voted no. Because of
concerns at this terms of the ceasefire were too lenient.
The drugs test and hostagetaking is believed to have brought them large
amounts of cash. If the peace deal is invalid, for many the fear is
that the rebels with the powerful players in future elections.

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

An article in the New York Times suggested that, by declaring huge
business losses in the 1990s, Donald Trump avoided paying taxes.
His campaign team are refusing to confirm or deny the report,
While millions of American families where are working hard and playing
our fair share, it seems he was contributing nothing to our nation.
Imagine that. Not fair, no grants for helping gates go to college.
Nothing for veterans are a military -- children to go to college. He has
been talking down America. He makes disparaging comments. He calls our
military a disaster. It is not, but it might have been if everyone else
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
cafe. He said, it is flat out cheating the Government. Bernie
Sanders, my friend, he said Donald Trump reflects a distorted view
about this country and what it is about. Former Mayor of New York has
also been speaking about the tax question. He is a genius. He took
advantage of something that could have saved his enterprise. He came
back. When's the Church and Steve jobs talk about that also. Great men
have big failures, they take those areas and turn them into good
results -- Steve Jobs. One of the most powerful hurricanes
for a decade is moving Hurricane Matthew may bring winds
of more than 240 kilometres per hour Haiti is expected to bear
the brunt of the storm. Parts of Jamaica have already been
hit. The worst of the weather is yet to come. Hurricane Matthew is moving
at five miles per hour. The rain and flooding is going to get worse. Dark
ominous storm clouds. Matthew was a category five storm. It has weakened
a little, but it is one of the most powerful hurricanes to hit the
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
the choppy water. I am on vacation. Unfortunately, her again has spoiled
application. -- the hurricane has spoiled the vacation. Local people
will be taking to more primitive storm shelters than the tourists.
For this man and family it will be a cave. TRANSLATION: We think we will
be saved. If they want to get to hike the whole city will be
swallowed up. A judge how the most important and we are trying to keep
them safe. -- our children. There have already been deaths in the
waters. Even so, it is being hard to persuade people to leave their
homes. It is a challenge from one of the poorest nations in the Americas.
We have been hearing from Hillary Clinton. This is a big New York
Times story. How is it playing at there? It has been cold a
blockbuster. It is what political journalists are talking about all
the time. A window into Donald Trump's taxes. Sheds light on his
finances at the time. Almost $1 billion loss in that one year. That
allows him to stretch out, not paying any kind of federal income
taxes. His perception that he is a great businessmen is dented because
all of a sudden people are saying, well, he lost all that money, how
can he be great? The also criticised Barack Obama for paying too little
taxes. Americans like to see rich people pay taxes. They know there
are loopholes. It is annoying to them for him not paying taxes for an
extended length of time. The emphasis is that he has earned a lot
of money. At the same time, they have been a lot of facts and
misappropriation of the truth. Donald Trump us support has held up.
When his key in the polls with a couple of debates to go? He has a
solid base of supporters, high 30s and low 40s sticking with him.
Daylight opening up. I don't think the tax story has really had an
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
early morning tweaked attacking that woman. -- tweet. Hillary Clinton has
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
you developments in the next few hours. Thanks for watching.
The weather story for the rest of the week is a fairly dry one.
