the latest person to distance herself from remarks she describes

:00:09.:00:20.

as rude and offensive, after a recording emerges of him

:00:21.:00:23.

candidate has said there's zero chance that he'll quit the race

:00:24.:00:32.

for the White House, despite the uproar that his

:00:33.:00:34.

after a funeral ceremony is bombed in Yemen.

:00:35.:00:46.

German police launch a manhunt for a suspect

:00:47.:00:48.

believed to be planning a bomb attack.

:00:49.:00:50.

And in sport: Nico Rosberg takes pole position

:00:51.:00:53.

in the Japanese Grand Prix, putting lewis Hamilton's defence

:00:54.:00:58.

Donald Trump has caused offence before but this time,

:00:59.:01:15.

even those closest to him have been unable to defend his words.

:01:16.:01:19.

On Friday a recording was released from 2005 in which he made obscene

:01:20.:01:22.

In it Mr Trump is heard bragging

:01:23.:01:27.

to TV host Billy Bush, a nephew of former President

:01:28.:01:30.

George Bush Senior, about trying to have sex

:01:31.:01:33.

with a married woman as well as kissing and groping others.

:01:34.:01:36.

"You can do anything... When you're a star", he says.

:01:37.:01:40.

In the last hour Melania Trump released a statement

:01:41.:01:45.

His running mate Mike Pence has said he was offended

:01:46.:01:56.

Mr Trump has apologised for the comments, but has said

:01:57.:02:07.

there is no chance he will stand down.

:02:08.:02:11.

Here's our North America editor Jon Sopel.

:02:12.:02:14.

2005, and Donald Trump is on a promotional bus

:02:15.:02:17.

His lewd conversation, captured on a live microphone.

:02:18.:02:58.

Social media went into meltdown, the Republican leadership

:02:59.:03:02.

variously describing his comments as sickening,

:03:03.:03:05.

For hours last night, Donald Trump was totally isolated.

:03:06.:03:14.

I've never said I am a perfect person nor pretended

:03:15.:03:18.

I have said and done things I regret, and the words released

:03:19.:03:22.

today on this more-than-a-decade-old video are one of them.

:03:23.:03:26.

Anyone who knows me knows those words do not reflect who I am.

:03:27.:03:29.

I said it, I was wrong, and I apologise.

:03:30.:03:33.

But very soon, contrition turned to defiance.

:03:34.:03:38.

Bill Clinton has actually abused women, and Hillary has bullied

:03:39.:03:50.

attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims.

:03:51.:03:52.

We will discuss this in the coming days, see

:03:53.:03:54.

But that threat to fight dirty is not what a lot of Republican

:03:55.:03:59.

senators and congressmen want to hear.

:04:00.:04:00.

They are fearful of their own political survival and are worried

:04:01.:04:03.

that Donald Trump will cost them their careers.

:04:04.:04:05.

Some are getting ready to abandon him, others crossed that

:04:06.:04:07.

It's sad, but I cannot endorse Donald Trump for president,

:04:08.:04:13.

after those comments and the way that he said them.

:04:14.:04:16.

There's no way I am voting for Hillary Clinton,

:04:17.:04:20.

but I can no longer endorse Donald Trump, I just cannot do it.

:04:21.:04:25.

Donald Trump will take to the stage tomorrow for the second debate,

:04:26.:04:32.

his ambitions, damaged and his party uneasy.

:04:33.:04:37.

Jon Sopel with that report - and Jon spoke to me a little earlier -

:04:38.:04:42.

over why these comments are causing outrage in the US.

:04:43.:04:47.

I think that they go further than what he has said before, he has

:04:48.:04:59.

called women pics and dogs, they are factored in, but what he said last

:05:00.:05:05.

night, what emerged last night seemed much more predatory, almost

:05:06.:05:11.

violent, it was lewd, it was graphic, grabbing women by their

:05:12.:05:14.

genitalia, almost a sense of entitlement that he could have sex

:05:15.:05:17.

with anyone he chose Ulster talking about this being a married woman

:05:18.:05:21.

even though Donald Trump had only recently married himself and Melania

:05:22.:05:26.

was pregnant at the time. The Republican party on high hopes that

:05:27.:05:31.

this had crossed the Rubicon and that Donald Trump had become toxic.

:05:32.:05:36.

Donald Trump has said that he won't resign but the numbers of

:05:37.:05:39.

Republicans wanted him to go seemed to grow and grow. Yeah I think if

:05:40.:05:45.

the Republican party had an easy mechanism to dump Trump, there are

:05:46.:05:49.

many in the party who would like them to use the option but it is

:05:50.:05:54.

more complicated. For a start you already have people who started

:05:55.:05:56.

voting in many states, Barack Obama for example cast his vote in

:05:57.:06:02.

Illinois. What would happen to those votes? You've seen today, the New

:06:03.:06:11.

Hampshire Senator coming out and saying that Donald Trump should step

:06:12.:06:16.

down. Reportedly some of his closest advisers are saying to him privately

:06:17.:06:19.

that he should review his position but I don't think it's going to

:06:20.:06:24.

happen. And you have Donald Trump saying that there is zero chance

:06:25.:06:27.

that he's going to leave. Where that leaves the Republican Party, it is

:06:28.:06:32.

praying that there are no more tapes and that there are no more women who

:06:33.:06:34.

are going to contradict the assertion of Donald Trump is that

:06:35.:06:39.

what you heard on that tape is not who he is and that he isn't that

:06:40.:06:43.

kind of individual. 24-hour is before the second presidential

:06:44.:06:50.

debate. Is this going to crop up? Oh, yeah! Inevitably, Donald Trump

:06:51.:06:53.

has more or less sets though, at the end of the statement he gave he said

:06:54.:06:58.

that he has things to say about Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton and that

:06:59.:07:04.

he will see us at the debate. I think it will inevitably crop up but

:07:05.:07:09.

there are no easy ways and the Republican Party is squeamish about

:07:10.:07:14.

this blitzkrieg policy where you try and fight as dirty as you possibly

:07:15.:07:18.

can. They think that won't help them and it won't help the men and women

:07:19.:07:23.

in Congress fighting to retain their seats in the Senate and the House of

:07:24.:07:27.

Representatives. Hillary Clinton is also under fire for some leaks made

:07:28.:07:32.

about private speeches that she's made in the past. What has been

:07:33.:07:38.

leaked? These are speeches that she made to Goldman Sachs where she was

:07:39.:07:44.

on the speaking circuit and was rather pro-free trade and

:07:45.:07:48.

pro-immigration reform, rather pro-some other things as well. In

:07:49.:07:53.

the great scheme of things, I suspect that the fire storm and

:07:54.:07:57.

focus is not on her, it is all around Donald Trump at the moment.

:07:58.:08:02.

This may cause Hillary Clinton a bit of inconvenience but the lens is

:08:03.:08:06.

fixed firmly on Donald Trump at the moment.

:08:07.:08:09.

Let's take a look at some other stories now.

:08:10.:08:12.

Russia has moved nuclear-capable missiles into its most westerly

:08:13.:08:15.

territory, Kaleeningrad, which borders Poland and Lithuania,

:08:16.:08:18.

The Russian defence ministry said the deployment of the Iskander

:08:19.:08:24.

missiles was part of a military exercise and has happened before.

:08:25.:08:28.

Russia backed down from plans to permanently deploy such missiles

:08:29.:08:30.

in Kaliningrad just after President Obama first took office.

:08:31.:08:36.

Authorities in Kuwait say they have detained

:08:37.:08:38.

a suspected Islamist militant - who deliberately rammed a truck

:08:39.:08:40.

loaded with explosives into car carrying five US soldiers.

:08:41.:08:45.

Officials said the Americans were unhurt in the attack,

:08:46.:08:49.

but the assailant, identified as an Egyptian national,

:08:50.:08:51.

The attempted attack is the first to target American troops

:08:52.:08:59.

The polls have just closed in Georgia's parliamentary elections.

:09:00.:09:04.

In a bitterly fought contest, the ruling Georgian Dream

:09:05.:09:07.

Party is being challenged by the United National Movement,

:09:08.:09:09.

founded by the exiled former president Mikheil Saakashvili.

:09:10.:09:11.

Georgia is a rare example of a former Soviet State which has

:09:12.:09:14.

At least 82 people have been killed and more than 500 wounded

:09:15.:09:28.

after a funeral was bombed in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa.

:09:29.:09:33.

The Houthi rebel movement, which controls most of the country,

:09:34.:09:35.

says warplanes of the Saudi-led coalition carried out the attack.

:09:36.:09:37.

The Houthi rebel movement, which controls most of the country,

:09:38.:09:40.

Coalition sources deny an operation took place.

:09:41.:09:42.

As the building smokes in Sanaa, bodies lie strewn in the day brief.

:09:43.:09:53.

For the emergency services, a race against time to save the weather

:09:54.:09:58.

they can. The bitter irony that a funeral held for the father of a

:09:59.:10:02.

prominent rebel cabinet minister will now result in many more

:10:03.:10:06.

funerals as the death toll continues to rise. Chaos and carnage is all

:10:07.:10:12.

around. Hundreds of mourners have suffered appalling injuries. The

:10:13.:10:17.

Houthi rebel movement that controls most of Yemen has accused the Saudi

:10:18.:10:22.

led coalition of the air strikes and deliberately targeting the funeral

:10:23.:10:26.

ceremony. But the coalition has flatly denied the claim. Sources in

:10:27.:10:31.

the alliance say it wouldn't target such a gathering. For the aid

:10:32.:10:35.

workers, the politics have been pushed to one side and now it's

:10:36.:10:41.

about saving lives. It doesn't matter who is behind it. We believe

:10:42.:10:45.

there were a couple of air strikes that hit the building but at this

:10:46.:10:49.

point we are trying to save the lives that can be saved. All

:10:50.:10:53.

organisations are pitching in to help the health authorities. We are

:10:54.:11:01.

providing body bags and supplies to a number of hospitals in the Yemeni

:11:02.:11:07.

capital. Much more is needed. The Irani backed Houthi Carroll swept

:11:08.:11:10.

into Sanaa in 2014 and advanced across much of Yemen, forcing the

:11:11.:11:16.

internationally recognised government to flee the capital. As

:11:17.:11:22.

the two sides are locked in dispute it is civilians who are finding

:11:23.:11:23.

themselves caught up in the turmoil. German police have arrested three

:11:24.:11:27.

people in connection with their search for a suspect

:11:28.:11:29.

planning a bomb attack where the suspect -

:11:30.:11:32.

believed to be a Syrian man - uncovered hundreds of

:11:33.:11:41.

grammes of explosives. Our Europe correspondent

:11:42.:11:43.

Damian Grammaticas reports. This is the man being hunted

:11:44.:11:46.

by German police, Jaber al-Bakr, he is 22 years old,

:11:47.:11:49.

from Damascus in Syria. Germany's security services say

:11:50.:11:54.

they have to assume he is dangerous. They believe he may have been

:11:55.:11:56.

planning a bomb attack. There was a tip-off from Germany's

:11:57.:12:01.

intelligence services They raided the apartment

:12:02.:12:03.

in Chemnitz, found that Jaber al-Bakr had already gone,

:12:04.:12:08.

but hidden inside they uncovered explosives, possibly evidence

of a bomb being prepared. TRANSLATION: At this time

herself from remarks she describes as rude and offensive.

:14:30.:14:31.

Just after Melania Trump made those remarks Donald Trump has

:14:32.:14:34.

"The media and establishment want me out of the race so badly,

:14:35.:14:44.

I WILL NEVER DROP OUT OF THE RACE, WILL NEVER LET MY SUPPORTERS DOWN!"

Eric Hamm is an analyst who has written a book

:14:49.:14:50.

on what the Republicans need to do to get into power.

:14:51.:14:54.

come on, then. What does Donald Trump need to do after this scandal

:14:55.:15:01.

to get into power? Donald Trump needs to get down on his knees and

:15:02.:15:06.

do a lot of begging and a lot of handholding. But I don't think

:15:07.:15:11.

that's going to work. Republicans are fleeing the nominee in droves

:15:12.:15:15.

for right now. This is on the EE of a very crucial and very important

:15:16.:15:19.

presidential debate that he needs to be able to turn the tide. -- on the

eve. You have college educated women who are going to be fleeing this

:15:27.:15:31.

candidate after the revelations of this hot Mike with him. He has an

:15:32.:15:39.

effort in front of him now. How significant that his wife and

:15:40.:15:42.

running mate have also condemned his comments? That's very interesting,

:15:43.:15:50.

especially with Mike Pence. Right after the vice president or debate,

:15:51.:15:54.

many people were actually clamouring for him to be at the top of the

:15:55.:16:00.

ticket and many were seeing him as a potential candidate in 2020. Now

:16:01.:16:06.

there are calls for Mike Pence to actually become the nominee and for

:16:07.:16:13.

Trump to drop out or stop -- drop out. Mike Pence has defended Donald

:16:14.:16:21.

Trump for the last year now. Now turning his back on him, so to speak

:16:22.:16:27.

and condemning his comments, along with his wife. So he's actually

:16:28.:16:33.

taking it on all fronts now and it will be interesting to see what

:16:34.:16:37.

happens and how he responds, particularly tomorrow in the debate

:16:38.:16:42.

in Saint Louis. So what does this mean for tomorrow's debate? How is

:16:43.:16:47.

Hillary Clinton going to handle it? Well, Hillary Clinton I think is

:16:48.:16:53.

going to have to do a 180 because she wanted to continue to get under

:16:54.:16:57.

his skin, much like she did in the first debate. I think now she

:16:58.:17:02.

probably wants to take a step back because I suspect that she's going

:17:03.:17:06.

to be thinking, as many welcomer that both the moderators and the

:17:07.:17:13.

audience, who can ask questions, we'll go after Donald Trump because

:17:14.:17:16.

of these latest comments that he made regarding women. So I think

:17:17.:17:21.

what Hillary wants to do is to be prepared that Donald Trump may begin

:17:22.:17:29.

to focus on Bill Clinton. I think that could backfire on him because

:17:30.:17:33.

she can take on a more sympathetic tone, not only with the audience in

:17:34.:17:40.

the town hall debate, but with the voting electorate who are going to

:17:41.:17:44.

be watching. Make no mistake, there will be many eyes on this debate

:17:45.:17:45.

tomorrow. Thank you for joining us. As a down-graded Hurricane

to have died there. It's the most powerful storm to hit

to arrive by air. The closer we got to Jeremie,

villages that just looked desolate. People are doing their best

:18:39.:18:44.

to rebuild their homes But Haiti is one of the poorest

:18:45.:18:47.

countries in the world and people are not expecting much help

:18:48.:18:52.

from their government. Around 1 million people are said

:18:53.:18:54.

to be in urgent need of assistance. TRANSLATION: I heard a boom and then

everything. Our houses are destroyed,

everything is gone. In the US, the hurricane hit

:19:11.:19:17.

a glancing blow along There was damage but it wasn't

:19:18.:19:20.

as bad as expected. Millions had heeded the call

:19:21.:19:24.

to leave their homes. Further north, the storm surge

:19:25.:19:28.

brought some of the highest tides on record, flooding

:19:29.:19:30.

many low-lying areas. The National Hurricane Center says

:19:31.:19:33.

the storm has now made landfall in South Carolina and serious inland

:19:34.:19:36.

flooding is expected. Dominique Fevry, who's

:19:37.:19:40.

with the Oxfam charity in Port-au-Prince, says

:19:41.:19:50.

the hurricane has made it very difficult to reach some

:19:51.:19:52.

parts of the country. For the past couple of days, since

:19:53.:20:03.

Matthew swept through the country, medication is with the officials,

:20:04.:20:08.

with anyone in the South West is extremely difficult. We know that

:20:09.:20:17.

there are several areas of the City and principalities that we haven't

:20:18.:20:21.

been able to reach. So far we have heard of ten cases of cholera but

:20:22.:20:29.

this is yet to be confirmed. The Ministry of health in Haiti is

:20:30.:20:33.

already on the site and trying to take care of the case. We already

:20:34.:20:44.

have staff that we have two help with this disease. Since the

:20:45.:20:51.

earthquake that hit Haiti in 2010, everything hasn't been rebuilt yet

:20:52.:20:57.

so that means that a lot of the structures were still fragile and

:20:58.:21:01.

this hurricane isn't helping the case at all. We've heard as well

:21:02.:21:08.

about the Hurricanes that may come our way. We are on stand-by but for

:21:09.:21:13.

now the priority is to ensure that the people who are in the South and

:21:14.:21:17.

cut off from the rest of the country have access to drinkable water,

:21:18.:21:22.

sanitary kits, as well as food and shelters.

It's a busy day of international football with World Cup qualifiers

:21:37.:21:39.

Earlier today England beat Malta 2-0 at Wembley in caretaker

:21:40.:21:44.

manager Gareth Southgate's first match in charge since

:21:45.:21:46.

Germany are beating the Czech Republic 2-0 with goals

:21:47.:21:50.

Robert Lewandowski has scored a hat-trick for Poland who

the Japanese grand prix, from second on the grid,

:21:55.:22:02.

and he will be hoping that history repeats itself.

:22:03.:22:04.

It was all so close in qualifying, and Hamilton was briefly quicker,

:22:05.:22:07.

than Rosberg, in the final session of qualifying at Suzuka.

:22:08.:22:09.

But the German hit back to take pole by that tiny margin.

:22:10.:22:12.

Coming into this weekend's Japanese Grand Prix it is an advantage

:22:13.:22:26.

Rosberg who has a 23 point gap over his Mercedes team-mate Lewis

:22:27.:22:30.

Hamilton. Hamilton is keen to make amends and on the evidence of

:22:31.:22:35.

today's qualifying secession -- session at Suzuka it is still an

:22:36.:22:38.

advantage Rosberg but only by 83 centimetres. In Japan they know who

:22:39.:22:44.

is number one. There's no getting away from it, Nico Rosberg is the

:22:45.:22:49.

man to beat in Formula 1 the moment. He dominated the circuit, one of the

:22:50.:22:54.

most challenging in motor racing. The championship leader topping the

:22:55.:22:57.

time sheets in all three practice sessions and going on to claim pole

:22:58.:23:01.

position but only by the tiniest of margins. All that separated him from

:23:02.:23:06.
