the world. More trouble for Donald Trump. Two more women accusing the

:00:14.:00:17.

Republican candidate for the White House of sexual misconduct.

:00:18.:00:23.

Thousands of Thais gather to mourn the King. During a visit to Germany,

:00:24.:00:33.

Nigeria's president tells his wife to know her place after she

:00:34.:00:37.

criticises his government. I don't know which party my wife belongs to.

:00:38.:00:41.

She belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room. How

:00:42.:00:49.

is this for a cage fight with a great white? The moment they die

:00:50.:00:54.

they came face-to-face with a killer shark. -- a diver. In the US, two

:00:55.:01:12.

more women have come forward alleging Donald Trump of sexual

:01:13.:01:15.

assault. One of them, a former contestant on his TV show the

:01:16.:01:20.

apprentice said he targeted her when they were discussing employment

:01:21.:01:23.

opportunities. The allegations were made in a press conference. Mr

:01:24.:01:29.

Trump, when I met you I was so impressed with your talents that I

:01:30.:01:33.

wanted to be like you. I wanted a role in your organisation. Instead

:01:34.:01:43.

you treated me as somebody to be hit upon. I was embarrassed by your

:01:44.:01:47.

sexual advances and share this information with people close to me.

:01:48.:01:55.

Mr Trump, you were interested in me only because you wanted a sexual

:01:56.:01:58.

relationship with me and for no other reason. After hearing the

:01:59.:02:03.

released audio tapes and your denials during the debate I felt I

:02:04.:02:06.

had to speak out about your behaviour. You do not have the right

:02:07.:02:14.

to treat women as sexual objects just because you are a star. Mr

:02:15.:02:19.

Trump has been campaigning in North Carolina and has yet to comment on

:02:20.:02:22.

the allegation but he has branded his other accusers as being horrible

:02:23.:02:29.

liars. Katty Kay is in Washington. . Thanks for joining us. Things have

:02:30.:02:32.

been moving pretty quickly. At the same time Donald Trump was trying

:02:33.:02:39.

dispel existing accusations, you could turn to another channel and

:02:40.:02:43.

see fresh accusations. Extraordinary, it is unravelling

:02:44.:02:49.

quickly. You heard the woman there, Summer Zervos, saying that Mr Trump

:02:50.:02:55.

made advances in 2007 and there is another woman who is being reported

:02:56.:03:01.

by the Washington Post, Kristin Anderson, saying she met Donald

:03:02.:03:04.

Trump in a nightclub in New York in the 90s and he made unwanted sexual

:03:05.:03:08.

advances towards her, that he put his hand up her skirt. A split it --

:03:09.:03:20.

explicit accounts from these women. There are 11 who have accused him of

:03:21.:03:23.

unwanted advances. The campaign has not responded to these accusations

:03:24.:03:30.

but Donald Trump did a rally this afternoon at the same time as this

:03:31.:03:34.

accusation from Summer Zervos was coming out and he said that some of

:03:35.:03:37.

these women were doing it for their moment of fame. He said that they

:03:38.:03:41.

will get some free fame and he called them phoney accusers. We know

:03:42.:03:47.

that many senior Republicans have distanced themselves from Mr Trump

:03:48.:03:50.

but there are those who are sticking with him, what have they been saying

:03:51.:03:55.

about these allegations? I spoke to one of them this morning on a TV

:03:56.:04:03.

show this morning, Ben Carson, who ran for the presidency himself, he

:04:04.:04:08.

is a supporter of Donald Trump. I asked him if he thought these women

:04:09.:04:11.

were lying, these accusers against Donald Trump. He didn't answer the

:04:12.:04:16.

question but he asked for my microphone to be cut off, so I guess

:04:17.:04:19.

he did not want to answer the Western. Absolutely. President Obama

:04:20.:04:26.

was in the cross hairs of Donald Trump, he was campaigning for Mrs

:04:27.:04:33.

Clinton but it seems that he has been targeted by Mr Trump and he had

:04:34.:04:42.

some strong words. This has been a theme of the last 24, 48 hours from

:04:43.:04:48.

the Trump campaign. What is happening is that Donald Trump is

:04:49.:04:52.

setting himself up as being the sole defender of his message against

:04:53.:04:58.

effectively the rest of the world, against President Obama, Hillary

:04:59.:05:00.

Clinton, the Republican party and the crooked media. The most

:05:01.:05:06.

criticism over the last 24 hours has been against the press, who he say

:05:07.:05:12.

is in collusion with the Clinton campaign. It is almost as if, having

:05:13.:05:16.

seen the pulse and how badly they are doing for him, there is some

:05:17.:05:22.

sense that things are going so badly for them, why not attack everybody?

:05:23.:05:28.

I must say that his supporters love this, they are thrilled to see

:05:29.:05:34.

Donald Trump in attack mode. They love to see him attacking Hillary

:05:35.:05:37.

Clinton and the media, it works well for those rallies he is holding but

:05:38.:05:42.

I'm afraid it does not get him other voters, which he needed he is going

:05:43.:05:48.

to win the White House. Thank you for joining us. We will hear more

:05:49.:05:53.

later. Katty Kay has been to Ohio to hear more from people there about

:05:54.:05:59.

the campaign. Thousands of Thais have gathered at Bangkok's royal

:06:00.:06:04.

palace to mourn King Bhumibol Adulyadej who died on Thursday. His

:06:05.:06:08.

body was brought to a palace in convoy as weeping mourners lined the

:06:09.:06:13.

streets. Millions watched on TV. The Crown prince has been named as

:06:14.:06:16.

successor but he has asked for a delay in the process and a former

:06:17.:06:20.

Prime Minister has been named as the Regent.

:06:21.:06:27.

This is the grand Palace, the King's body is there after an emotional day

:06:28.:06:36.

in Bangkok, tens of thousands of people taking to the streets. There

:06:37.:06:42.

are still large numbers of people here wearing black, the colour of

:06:43.:06:47.

mourning. It will be a year mourning for King King Bhumibol Adulyadej who

:06:48.:06:52.

died in hospital yesterday and today he's body was brought to Bangkok, to

:06:53.:07:01.

the grand Palace. Emotional scenes, people kneeling down, praying, many

:07:02.:07:09.

of them openly weeping. For many people in Thailand he is the only

:07:10.:07:15.

monarch they have known, unifying figure in many years of dramatic

:07:16.:07:20.

change in Thailand and considerable political upheaval. So his death has

:07:21.:07:30.

been very keenly felt here. There is a degree of worry about what comes

:07:31.:07:35.

next. Thailand is to mark the King's death for a year. Here is a look at

:07:36.:07:41.

how people are likely to observe that mourning period.

:07:42.:09:18.

Reaction in Thailand to the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej. She

:09:19.:09:24.

campaigned vigorously for her husband in Nigeria's election two

:09:25.:09:28.

years ago but there has been a warning that she may not again back

:09:29.:09:33.

him unless he shakes up his government. The presidents button to

:09:34.:09:38.

shake up his government but according to his wife he does not

:09:39.:09:40.

know many of his top officials. She said it was time that her husband

:09:41.:09:46.

listens to his supporters. The president has shot back at his

:09:47.:09:49.

wife's comments telling her, in his opinion, where it two in his

:09:50.:09:57.

opinion, where she belongs. I don't know what party my wife belongs to

:09:58.:10:00.

but she belongs to my Kitching and my living room. And the other room.

:10:01.:10:12.

I was in the field for 12 years. I tried three times. The first time I

:10:13.:10:25.

managed to succeed. I claim superior knowledge over her and the rest of

:10:26.:10:35.

the opposition. In Nigeria, mixed reaction and some people saying on

:10:36.:10:41.

social media that the president is behaving like Donald Trump. Many

:10:42.:10:49.

people, especially women's groups and other activists, have condemned

:10:50.:10:57.

his reaction. Some on social media comparing him with the Republican

:10:58.:11:00.

presidential candidate, Donald Trump, while others are saying that

:11:01.:11:07.

President Mohamed may be a good leader but is a bad husband

:11:08.:11:10.

according to them. Others are asking, where was she is campaigning

:11:11.:11:23.

for him? Some are saying that he was joking and in the last few minutes,

:11:24.:11:28.

the President's spokesman has issued a statement saying the president was

:11:29.:11:33.

joking when he said that his wife belongs to the kitchen. He wasn't

:11:34.:11:39.

referring to her or trying to lower her status at all. Still to come:

:11:40.:11:47.

the sound of history repeating itself, the Battle of Hastings

:11:48.:11:58.

recreated 950 years on. Parts of San Francisco least affected by the

:11:59.:12:00.

earthquake are returning to life but in the marina area they are more

:12:01.:12:05.

conscious than ever of how much has been destroyed. In the 19 years

:12:06.:12:15.

since he was last here he has moved on. It was a 20 be vomited blood on

:12:16.:12:19.

the fifth floor of the hotel, ripping a fold in the hotel. This

:12:20.:12:24.

government will not weaken. Democracy will prevail.

:12:25.:12:43.

The nation held its breath and then the bells rang out and Chile rang

:12:44.:13:04.

out an enormous roar. The headlines: two more women have come forward to

:13:05.:13:07.

accuse Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump of sexual

:13:08.:13:12.

assault. Thousands of Thais have gathered at Bangkok's royal palace

:13:13.:13:18.

for late-night vigil to mourn King Bhumibol Adulyadej. A former Prime

:13:19.:13:21.

Minister has unexpectedly been named as regent.

:13:22.:13:25.

US Secretary of State John Kerry and the Russian Foreign Minister

:13:26.:13:27.

Sergei Lavrov will hold fresh talks on Syria in Switzerland on Saturday.

:13:28.:13:30.

The Syrian President has been speaking to a Russian newspaper.

:13:31.:13:34.

He remains unapologetic over his force's actions in Aleppo -

:13:35.:13:36.

This is what he had to say about his army's attempt

:13:37.:13:40.

From the military point of view, it could be the springboard as a big

:13:41.:13:56.

City to move in to other areas. You have to keep cleaning this area and

:13:57.:14:03.

push back the terrorists to where they come from or to kill them. This

:14:04.:14:09.

will be an important springboard to do this move. Some other stories

:14:10.:14:12.

now. The trial of the Dutch

:14:13.:14:15.

anti-immigrant politician, After a judge in The Hague

:14:16.:14:17.

dismissed his lawyer's attempts to have hate speech

:14:18.:14:21.

charges thrown out. The allegations against the leader

:14:22.:14:23.

of the right-wing Freedom Party, stem from comments he made

:14:24.:14:25.

at a rally in 2014. A pair of 13-month-old twins

:14:26.:14:30.

conjoined at the head have been successfully separated after 16

:14:31.:14:32.

hours of surgery in Doctors say Jadon and Anias McDonald

:14:33.:14:34.

are recovering from the marathon surgery and that they have a long

:14:35.:14:40.

road of recovery and rehabilitation Americans travelling to Cuba will be

:14:41.:14:43.

allowed to bring home more of the island's coveted cigars

:14:44.:14:50.

and rum under new measures announced by the US government on Friday

:14:51.:14:52.

to further ease trade and travel The news will be welcomed

:14:53.:14:55.

by the Cuban government, which wants the decades-old US

:14:56.:14:58.

embargo to be totally lifted. Some breaking news now. In the last

:14:59.:15:12.

few minutes the US Transportation Department has said that all Samsung

:15:13.:15:18.

Galaxy Note seven devices will be banned on all flights. Passengers

:15:19.:15:23.

attempting to carry them on board a flight will be fined or have them

:15:24.:15:31.

confiscated. The policy comes in on Saturday. Saint-Sa ns -- Samsun

:15:32.:15:40.

suspended sales after reports the phones catching fire.

:15:41.:15:46.

Let's return to our top story - the US presidential election -

:15:47.:15:48.

there's just 24 days left in the race to the White House.

:15:49.:15:51.

The election is won and lost in the swing states.

:15:52.:15:54.

Ohio is one of those - and it's a must win for Donald Trump

:15:55.:15:57.

because no Republican candidate has ever won the Presidency without it.

:15:58.:16:00.

Despite losing popularity in the polls, fortunately for him

:16:01.:16:02.

at least, the loss of manufacturing jobs in Ohio has led some

:16:03.:16:05.

Democrats to rethink their political loyalties.

:16:06.:16:09.

The BBC's Katty Kay visited Lorain, in the north of the state

:16:10.:16:12.

This is the story of Lorain Ohio, the town that globalisation left

:16:13.:16:23.

behind. A hard road for many people in this community. When you walked

:16:24.:16:27.

out of high school and got your diploma, you could get a job the

:16:28.:16:33.

next day, the Shipyard, Ford, but we don't have that any more. Mark is a

:16:34.:16:37.

lifelong Democrat who has switched parties in order to vote for Donald

:16:38.:16:43.

Trump. I'm upset, discouraged with the government, people's lives at

:16:44.:16:46.

stake, people losing their houses. Mike doesn't like what Trump says

:16:47.:16:51.

about women and immigrants but they'd be months ago he met the

:16:52.:16:55.

candidate here at this diner and he was impressed. I'm voting for my

:16:56.:17:03.

job. I asked a lot of questions. I didn't particularly care for a lot

:17:04.:17:09.

of the answers, being a union steelworker but they were honest. On

:17:10.:17:13.

the main drag the Clinton campaign makes a splash but they know that

:17:14.:17:16.

Trump has tapped into something here. I was born here but I have

:17:17.:17:23.

lived here my whole life. This man's family has been here for four

:17:24.:17:27.

nations and Lorain has been union country and it should be Hillary

:17:28.:17:31.

country. I think people are upset and they have seen that the status

:17:32.:17:35.

quo is not going well for us, we need to do more and build an economy

:17:36.:17:40.

that... I think that is what Secretary Clinton is pushing. Closed

:17:41.:17:45.

factories littering northern Ohio, ghostly cathedrals to another time,

:17:46.:17:50.

before the double blow of free trade and automation. When factories that

:17:51.:17:55.

used to employ hundreds of workers now look like this, it's not

:17:56.:18:00.

surprising that people are angry. It is more human to blame other

:18:01.:18:05.

countries or immigrants than it is to blame computer chips and robots.

:18:06.:18:11.

This plant is as much the story of technology as of trade. Susan is a

:18:12.:18:16.

professor of economics who spent a few years working in the Obama

:18:17.:18:20.

administration. We've had a particular kind of globalisation,

:18:21.:18:25.

large multinationals worrying about things like intellectual property

:18:26.:18:29.

but they don't protect Labour rights or environmental rights so you have

:18:30.:18:34.

a globalisation that is really rewarding competition based on who

:18:35.:18:42.

can mistreat their workers in the -- and the environment more. The

:18:43.:18:45.

candidates can promise the moon but these steel meals will never provide

:18:46.:18:48.

jobs and livelihoods the way they used to. A new industry will have to

:18:49.:18:54.

revive Lorain. That is a challenge for whoever is the next president.

:18:55.:19:05.

with rugby union and the European Champions Cup is underway with a

:19:06.:19:13.

bad-tempered match. Glasgow currently 25-13 up against

:19:14.:19:14.

Leicester. Richard Conway was in Zurich where a

:19:15.:19:47.

two day meeting is taking place. Fifa started this two-day meeting in

:19:48.:19:52.

Zurich talking about new plans and a new vision for the next ten years

:19:53.:19:57.

but the theme over the course of the two days has been dominated by World

:19:58.:20:01.

Cup expansion plans, specifically what they will do for 2026 and that

:20:02.:20:07.

World Cup. At the moment 32 teams take part but what is under

:20:08.:20:12.

discussion is perhaps 40 teams or perhaps even 48 teams for that

:20:13.:20:18.

tournament. I spoke to Gianni Infantino, the president of Fifa,

:20:19.:20:21.

who believes that the time is right for reform. I firmly believe that

:20:22.:20:27.

the quality also has raised all over the world, football on the pitch and

:20:28.:20:34.

I am advocating expansion. What it will be, 40, 48, I am open. Fifa is

:20:35.:20:43.

looking to its future, it has a new secretary-general who has been

:20:44.:20:45.

undergoing a thorough audit and looking through the books and she

:20:46.:20:49.

says she has been surprised by what she's finding and she is

:20:50.:20:53.

incrementing changes including saving ?120,000 in hotels fees this

:20:54.:20:58.

week alone but there are other changes coming in terms of

:20:59.:21:03.

transport. No more limousines. People are looking for getting into

:21:04.:21:13.

this train of reform but also with the train of Fifa projecting a much

:21:14.:21:17.

better image. Fifa officials will come back to Zurich on January the

:21:18.:21:21.

night next year, they will make the key decision about the 2026 World

:21:22.:21:26.

Cup and continue efforts to change perceptions about how they are

:21:27.:21:28.

running football. To tennis now, and Andy Murray has

:21:29.:21:40.

reached the semi-finals of the Shanghai Masters

:21:41.:21:42.

with a straight sets Novak Djokovoc plays Spain's Roberto

:21:43.:21:44.

Bautista Agut in the other semi. The German has signed a two-year

:21:45.:21:54.

deal worth around ?17 million. Its is said there are only two

:21:55.:22:06.

dates many English people One was a famous victory,

:22:07.:22:09.

when England last won the World Cup. The other was a terrible defeat,

:22:10.:22:13.

in 1066 King Harold was defeated by Frenchman,

:22:14.:22:16.

William the Conqueror. It was the last successful invasion

:22:17.:22:17.

of the UK and it took place exactly 950 years ago -

:22:18.:22:21.

at what is known as Duncan Kennedy has been at the site

:22:22.:22:23.

of the battle where some people have been

:22:24.:22:30.

fighting the battle This was a battle for the very

:22:31.:22:32.

future of England - King Harold's army against

:22:33.:22:45.

the troops of William of Normandy. A clash of culture and power that

:22:46.:22:51.

realigned the destiny of Europe. And re-enacted today, exactly 950

:22:52.:22:54.

years after its brutal conclusion. Around 20,000 men took

:22:55.:23:01.

part in the fighting. The battle lasted for

:23:02.:23:03.

about nine hours. By the end, so many Saxons

:23:04.:23:06.

were dying, there was hardly King Harold was killed,

:23:07.:23:10.

his hopes and ambitions For those taking part today,

:23:11.:23:20.

nine and a half centuries of time But how important is it

:23:21.:23:24.

to remember this day? It's really important,

:23:25.:23:30.

because this battle is the most significant in British

:23:31.:23:33.

history, European history 600 children marched

:23:34.:23:34.

in commemoration of the battle. 1066 is part of our

:23:35.:23:42.

historical hinterland. And even today, this

:23:43.:23:44.

cataclysmic event Our relationship with Europe,

:23:45.:23:47.

for example, is very current. That is affected by the Norman

:23:48.:23:55.

conquest, because after 1066, for the next 500 years,

:23:56.:23:58.

English kings will have a very There will be more

:23:59.:24:01.

re-enactments over the weekend, but English Heritage says

:24:02.:24:08.

they're all sold out. 950 years on, this remains

:24:09.:24:11.

a day full of impact, still informing our culture,

:24:12.:24:17.

our society and our lives. And finally, some footage of a truly

:24:18.:24:20.

terrifying encounter with a shark. It shows the moment when it got

:24:21.:24:33.

into what was thought to be a shark-proof cage

:24:34.:24:39.

with the diver inside. The shark is attracted to the cages

:24:40.:24:41.

with a large lump of tuna, After a frantic few

:24:42.:24:47.

seconds, the animal beats

:24:48.:25:01.

its way over the top. With mounting concern for the safety

:25:02.:25:16.

of the diver, who can't be seen. The experienced divemaster is shaken

:25:17.:25:22.

but, thankfully, unharmed. He dropped beneath the cage when it

:25:23.:25:28.

gave way, with two other sharks

:25:29.:25:30.

just below him. These cages are professionally

:25:31.:25:32.

engineered to withstand Amazing escape! You can get in touch
