This is BBC World News Today, broadcasting in the UK

:00:00.:00:07.

Here are the headlines: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump

:00:08.:00:14.

prepare for a TV debate which could make or break their chances

:00:15.:00:17.

The stage is set for an almighty battle, as Donald Trump's camp

:00:18.:00:24.

promises to come out fighting, despite the outcry from his obscene

:00:25.:00:27.

An anti-Saudi protest in the Yemeni capital after airstrikes kill 140

:00:28.:00:38.

Safety fears for Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 after its

:00:39.:00:44.

And why do hundreds wait for a free mystery tattoo by putting their arm

:00:45.:00:51.

There are now just five hours to go until round two of the big

:00:52.:01:16.

Trump versus Clinton televised debate in St Louis,

:01:17.:01:18.

And it seems the furore surrounding a videotape

:01:19.:01:21.

showing Donald Trump making crude remarks

:01:22.:01:23.

As Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton prepare to face each other,

:01:24.:01:31.

debate moderators have altered the format so that the initial

:01:32.:01:34.

questions will deal directly with the leaked video.

:01:35.:01:39.

And for Donald Trump, his advisor, Rudy Giuliani,

:01:40.:01:41.

has said that Mr Trump may raise the sexual history of the former

:01:42.:01:44.

Let's go to our correspondent, Laura Bicker who is

:01:45.:01:49.

This has the potential to get very ugly? It does, we have Donald Trump

:01:50.:02:03.

going through his run through inside and what he will probably say in his

:02:04.:02:07.

opening remarks but we've already got an idea of the tone he's going

:02:08.:02:10.

to use from his early-morning Twitter storm. He has denounced

:02:11.:02:16.

Republicans who have abandoned his candidacy as hypocrites. This is a

:02:17.:02:20.

Donald on the attack. Donald Trump's supporters

:02:21.:02:22.

are as defiant as the man himself. As they gathered for this brief

:02:23.:02:28.

glimpse outside Trump Towers, it was clear he is still their

:02:29.:02:37.

choice to be president. As ever, Mr Trump used Twitter

:02:38.:02:39.

to reinforce his message. Later, he tried to turn the tables

:02:40.:02:56.

on the Clinton campaign. He published a link to an interview

:02:57.:03:02.

with a woman who made a historic rape allegation

:03:03.:03:04.

against Bill Clinton. The accusation has never

:03:05.:03:06.

been tested in court. 16 Republican senators have

:03:07.:03:17.

withdrawn support for their party's candidate since this

:03:18.:03:21.

video was published. He brags about kissing

:03:22.:03:22.

and groping women. Hours before the debate,

:03:23.:03:27.

his campaign team is trying He is ashamed of himself

:03:28.:03:30.

and embarrassed. He is the father of two daughters

:03:31.:03:37.

and he has eight grandchildren, He would not want them

:03:38.:03:46.

to hear or see that. Donald Trump has proved to be

:03:47.:03:51.

a polarising figure. And his sexual boasts are not

:03:52.:03:57.

putting off all his voters. Everybody has flaws and things

:03:58.:04:00.

they do that are inappropriate. It does not mean he

:04:01.:04:02.

cannot be president. I compare him to JFK

:04:03.:04:07.

and Bill Clinton, every politician have loved women and women

:04:08.:04:11.

are attracted to power. It will not just be Donald Trump

:04:12.:04:14.

facing tough questions, Hillary Clinton may be

:04:15.:04:21.

asked about e-mails Never has the pressure been greater

:04:22.:04:23.

than on a Donald Trump and if he fails this

:04:24.:04:27.

test it could be a fatal The debate format to night is

:04:28.:04:38.

different from before. There are 100 members of the audience, undecided

:04:39.:04:41.

voters who get to ask half the questions and the moderators ask the

:04:42.:04:45.

other half. We know that the first question is going to be about those

:04:46.:04:50.

Trump tapes. 80 million people watched the last debate and usually

:04:51.:04:54.

the second one, the viewers drop off but I think for this one it is

:04:55.:04:58.

really must watch. Thank you for joining us.

:04:59.:05:02.

Well as we were hearing from Laura, a number of High profile Republicans

:05:03.:05:05.

have been deserting Donald Trump, but what about his core base?

:05:06.:05:09.

Well we can speak to Charlotte Laws, one Trump supporter.

:05:10.:05:12.

I'm interested in what you make of this video where Donald Trump is

:05:13.:05:18.

seen making very aggressive and lewd comments about women? I think it is

:05:19.:05:24.

much ado about nothing, honestly. We have known for a year and a half,

:05:25.:05:30.

ten years, 20 years that he talks in a crude way, that he says things as

:05:31.:05:34.

he sees them, and he speaks that way. The thing about club, he does

:05:35.:05:39.

not support the double standard, like many in society. He is an equal

:05:40.:05:47.

opportunity critic, attacking men and women. Many people attacking him

:05:48.:05:53.

seem to think that women are fragile and should be treated differently to

:05:54.:05:57.

men, that they should be sequestered from bad words. He does not believe

:05:58.:06:02.

that, he treats women verbally the same way and he promotes women, he

:06:03.:06:06.

has a history of putting them in executive positions, high-powered

:06:07.:06:12.

position, even in the 80s, in the construction industry, when this

:06:13.:06:16.

wasn't done at all. He pays high salaries and he is into equality.

:06:17.:06:22.

Even so, he has called women fat pigs, dogs and slobs. I'm struggling

:06:23.:06:26.

to see what he has called men that even compares to these things. He

:06:27.:06:31.

has said many things to men. He called Rand Paul ugly, he has called

:06:32.:06:38.

men many things. You will read articles and you will see the

:06:39.:06:40.

attacks that women make against men. Megan Kelly called Chris Christie a

:06:41.:06:50.

fatso on Fox News and nobody reported it. I have seen comments

:06:51.:06:54.

about Trump about how he is orange, how he is tubby but nobody says

:06:55.:06:59.

anything, because there is a double standard and that somehow you must

:07:00.:07:04.

treat women differently from men. I don't believe that, Trump doesn't

:07:05.:07:08.

believe it. We believe in pure equality. But name-calling and other

:07:09.:07:14.

comments that Donald Trump has made, it's not very presidential, is it? I

:07:15.:07:19.

totally agree and if that is your argument, that's fine. I think he'll

:07:20.:07:24.

be an excellent president. I think he will overthrow the status quo,

:07:25.:07:29.

that he will change the way that things are done in Washington and

:07:30.:07:33.

I'm very hopeful about that and I think he will go down in history as

:07:34.:07:36.

one of the best presidents of all time, if he can get elected. But if

:07:37.:07:40.

you don't like the language, then that's a perfectly fine argument.

:07:41.:07:46.

I'm not bothered by the language. You can look at people like Winston

:07:47.:07:52.

Churchill, other people in history who used foul language and work

:07:53.:07:56.

great leaders. Can you understand why people have been incensed by

:07:57.:08:01.

this language, including Condoleezza Rice? It is largely because people

:08:02.:08:04.

are entrenched in our success society, they believe in the double

:08:05.:08:11.

standard -- sexist society. I think they aren't really looking at it in

:08:12.:08:14.

a pure way and many people have an agenda. They either want to derail

:08:15.:08:21.

his campaign, which has gone on from day one, the establishment, even the

:08:22.:08:25.

media in the United States have been trying everything to derail his

:08:26.:08:32.

campaign. Or they don't want to lose their own power, they are afraid

:08:33.:08:35.

he's going to come in and change trade deals, he is a bit of a

:08:36.:08:42.

protectionist, he isn't going to interfere and rebuild other nations,

:08:43.:08:46.

he has a different policy to what has been in Washington. The people

:08:47.:08:49.

in power are very afraid they are going to lose that power and lose

:08:50.:08:52.

their money. Thank you for joining us.

:08:53.:09:10.

There have been protests in Yemeni capital Sanaa after Saturday air

:09:11.:09:13.

strike on a funeral in Yemen, which killed more than

:09:14.:09:15.

140 people and injured hundreds more.

:09:16.:09:16.

Saudi Arabia described the attack in the capital Sanaa -

:09:17.:09:19.

as a "regrettable event" - and said its coalition was ready

:09:20.:09:22.

to begin an investigation - in coordination with the Americans.

:09:23.:09:24.

The US said it would review its support for

:09:25.:09:26.

the Saudi-led coalition, which is allied with

:09:27.:09:28.

Dense black smoke billows from what was a funeral hall

:09:29.:09:32.

Some survivors can be glimpsed trying to escape

:09:33.:09:35.

This amateur video appears to show how the funeral of one man became

:09:36.:09:51.

Here the aftermath of the carnage and the rush to find the wounded

:09:52.:10:02.

and dead, who, minutes earlier, had been warning the father

:10:03.:10:05.

TRANSLATION: We came here after the first hit happened,

:10:06.:10:16.

while we are helping survivors and get people out,

:10:17.:10:18.

The Foreign Office said the images from the scene were shocking

:10:19.:10:28.

and Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said if civilians were

:10:29.:10:32.

deliberately targeted, Britain would review its criteria

:10:33.:10:34.

The conflict in Yemen escalated in September 2014

:10:35.:10:51.

when the Houthi rebels, who are allied with Iran,

:10:52.:10:54.

In March last year, the Saudis and their allies began

:10:55.:10:57.

a controversial campaign of air strikes against the Houthis.

:10:58.:10:59.

The UN says more than 4,000 civilians have

:11:00.:11:01.

Most in air strikes by the Saudi-led coalition.

:11:02.:11:08.

Saudi Arabia has promised to investigate the latest strike,

:11:09.:11:10.

It says its troops have clear instructions not to

:11:11.:11:16.

But the White House has begun an immediate review of its support

:11:17.:11:28.

for the Saudi coalition, which has already been cut back.

:11:29.:11:41.

Let's return to our top story, the US presidential debate.

:11:42.:11:44.

Tonight it will have a slightly different format to the first

:11:45.:11:46.

one we saw last month - the two candidates will be joined

:11:47.:11:49.

by a live audience of undecided voters.

:11:50.:11:51.

They'll be putting questions to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton

:11:52.:11:53.

who will be moderated by hosts from CNN and ABC.

:11:54.:11:57.

Let's speak to Aaron Kall, director of debate at Michigan University.

:11:58.:11:59.

Thank you for joining us. Shall we talk about the interview that we

:12:00.:12:06.

just did, I understand you have some strong views? Certainly a great job

:12:07.:12:14.

of a sorrow gut, making the best case and I think tonight that Trump

:12:15.:12:18.

is going to go back to his primary self and really attack the

:12:19.:12:22.

establishment and try and put him soft as being in the best light as

:12:23.:12:28.

being an agent of change in the election. How is Donald Trump going

:12:29.:12:32.

to handle the attacks that Hillary Clinton may make about this leaked

:12:33.:12:36.

tape? It's going to be front and centre at the beginning of the

:12:37.:12:39.

debate and I think the first thing he should do is immediately

:12:40.:12:43.

apologise, express contrition. Similar to Secretary Clinton during

:12:44.:12:49.

the first debate about her private e-mail server and he should ask the

:12:50.:12:52.

forgiveness of American voters, who are very forgiving people and if he

:12:53.:13:00.

shows genuine remorse they may be willing to forgive him. Both camps

:13:01.:13:04.

have been preparing for this for some time. What do you think the

:13:05.:13:09.

strategy for Donald club and -- Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton

:13:10.:13:13.

will be? Trump must address questions of his temperament. At the

:13:14.:13:17.

end of the last debate he did a pretty good job of stopping short of

:13:18.:13:24.

making really scandalous attacks. He ran out of steam. He started strong.

:13:25.:13:29.

This time he needs a solid 90 minutes and both candidates must

:13:30.:13:33.

show empathy towards the voters. Questions about the economy and

:13:34.:13:36.

trade and they need to connect with them and understand where they are

:13:37.:13:40.

coming from and provide common-sense solutions to the voters who are

:13:41.:13:43.

having a tough time making a decision. This contest has become

:13:44.:13:49.

very ugly indeed. Could it become uglier and what would voters make of

:13:50.:13:56.

that? There is potential for it to be really nasty and if he throws the

:13:57.:14:02.

kitchen sink and she comes back. Both of them have vulnerabilities. I

:14:03.:14:09.

think it will turn off voters. There are voters thinking about not

:14:10.:14:12.

voting, or in tracing a third-party candidate. If it gets so nasty you

:14:13.:14:16.

are going to see less turnout and a more uncertain election. If you had

:14:17.:14:22.

to call it either way, which way would you choose? Tonight? I think

:14:23.:14:29.

it's going to be a minor part of the debate, there will be a lot of

:14:30.:14:32.

hoopla. You mentioned Twitter. I think it will be a footnote. Thank

:14:33.:14:41.

you for joining us. Stay with us, still to come: the sports News

Team-mate and title rival Lewis Hamilton was third.

:14:53.:14:58.

This was a celebration by people relishing their freedom. They

:14:59.:15:03.

believe everything is going to be different from now on. They think

a replacement Samsung Galaxy Note 7 device has caught fire,

the second such incident that has On Wednesday one of the phones

:19:02.:19:03.

caught fire on a plane in the US, The company had claimed

the problem with the Note 7 With me is Rhiannon

Williams, the technology How much of a crisis is this for

:19:14.:19:30.

Saint-Sa ns? It couldn't come worse, it has come at a difficult time in

:19:31.:19:37.

the smartphone market and for Samsung to have their premium

:19:38.:19:40.

handset taken off the market is very bad news for them indeed. This is

:19:41.:19:44.

the second replacement. What is going wrong for the company? In mid

:19:45.:19:50.

August when Samsung started selling the Note seven model, reports that

:19:51.:19:58.

the phone was overheating when being charged. Samsung took note of this

:19:59.:20:08.

and issued a global recall, which is unheard of, not many technology

:20:09.:20:13.

companies would go to such lengths. Samsung said that they would issue

:20:14.:20:17.

people with replacements but now feed the placements are catching

:20:18.:20:20.

fire with the same issue. Is it going to hurt them long-term?

:20:21.:20:27.

Initially it was extremely bad news for the handsets to be exploding but

:20:28.:20:31.

the fact that the recall is experiencing the same problems is

:20:32.:20:34.

extremely damaging. Very difficult to come back from that and restore

:20:35.:20:39.

consumer confidence in Samsung even though it is the world's largest

:20:40.:20:45.

mobile manufacturer. People won't invest if there is a risk of harm.

:20:46.:20:49.

Is it going to play into the hands of Apple, Samsung's biggest rival?

:20:50.:20:58.

Yes, coming after the release of the iPhone seven in September. In the

:20:59.:21:02.

run-up to Christmas people are going to be looking to buy new handsets

:21:03.:21:06.

and Apple will look to capitalise. What can Samsung do to bring back

:21:07.:21:13.

confidence to the device? At this point it looks like the only thing

:21:14.:21:16.

they can do is to kill off the Mode line. People are likely to go back

:21:17.:21:25.

and purchase older models -- the Note line. They will have to focus

:21:26.:21:29.

on the Galaxy range. Thank you for joining us.

:21:30.:21:35.

Would you let someone give you a free mystery tattoo?

:21:36.:21:37.

Well in London people have been at the centre of a gallery

:21:38.:21:40.

Behind it is renowned tattoo artist Scott Campbell.

:21:41.:21:43.

He tattoos for free any arm that comes through.

:21:44.:21:45.

But there is no communication, and the person only discovers

:21:46.:21:48.

I am Scott Campbell, doing a project which is essentially a hole in the

:21:49.:22:06.

wall and I am on the other side of the wall and anyone is welcome to

:22:07.:22:11.

put their arm through. I'm going to put my arm through the wall and let

:22:12.:22:15.

the artist do its work. No communication at all. I don't know

:22:16.:22:20.

how it's going to be, it is kind of a surprise but it's going to be a

:22:21.:22:22.

good surprise! JAZZY MUSIC I don't know what it is going to be

:22:23.:22:57.

but it is big, I can say that. Part of what I enjoy about the project, I

:22:58.:23:02.

don't really worry about what's on the other side of the wall. I just

:23:03.:23:07.

get to hide in my little room and do the thing that I love to do.

:23:08.:23:10.

Sometimes you can tell the gender, sometimes it isn't clear. I tried to

:23:11.:23:17.

predict what people would get. Every time that somebody's arm comes

:23:18.:23:25.

through and I put my hands on it, "This arm needs something else. " I

:23:26.:23:33.

don't have a message. I'm doing this out of my own curiosity and learning

:23:34.:23:39.

as I go. It is an idea of what I can do with tattoos in the same way as

:23:40.:23:47.

drawing, without asking permission. Letting the artist do his work,

:23:48.:23:53.

amazing. I am profoundly appreciative of the trust it takes

:23:54.:23:55.

to participate in something like this. When people pull the arm out,

:23:56.:24:04.

I want everyone who was afraid to put their arm in to look at it and

:24:05.:24:10.

wish they had done it. It is done? It is done.

:24:11.:24:21.

While! Amazing. -- wow! It was amazing. It turned out to be

:24:22.:24:39.

perfect. I was looking at the flames and skulls and I thought, let him

:24:40.:24:44.

mixed them up and it is likely read my mind. Button extraordinary thing

:24:45.:24:50.

to do. A giant pumpkin grown in Britain has become the biggest ever

:24:51.:24:55.

to be cultivated outdoors in the UK. It weighs over 600 kilograms.

:24:56.:24:58.

Earlier we caught up with the man who grew it from a seed. As of

:24:59.:25:05.

yesterday, the final day of the weighing, that was the end of 149

:25:06.:25:12.

days long project for me. That means that something must be done to the

:25:13.:25:18.

plant every day for 149 days, even if it is going out to be patched to

:25:41.:25:44.

different things in the evenings. That is quite low, five times a week

:25:45.:25:50.

sometimes as the season goes on. Measuring, we must measure the fruit

:25:51.:25:55.

as well. I do that on most days to keep track of how much they are

:25:56.:25:59.

growing and try and get as much information about how to perform as

:26:00.:26:03.

possible so I can decide what needs to be done the next day the Mac the

:26:04.:26:10.

day after. Blimey, that is huge. That's it from me and the team for
