because of high pollution levels. There are fears falling snow could

:00:00.:00:00.

be dangerously contaminated. Security officials in the US state

:00:00.:00:17.

of Florida say five people have been killed in a shooting

:00:18.:00:23.

at Fort Lauderdale The local sheriff said eight

:00:24.:00:26.

people were also wounded. The gunman is understood to be

:00:27.:00:29.

in police custody and is believed this scene is considered fluid and

:00:30.:00:49.

active. One of the more critical pieces of information is we have the

:00:50.:00:57.

shooter in custody. He is unharmed, nose or enforcement fired any shots.

:00:58.:01:01.

The subject is being interviewed by a team of FBI agents and Sheriff's

:01:02.:01:08.

office homicide detectives. That was the local sheriff. Let's get the

:01:09.:01:12.

latest from Barbara Plett usher in Washington. Some interesting details

:01:13.:01:17.

have come out, including details on how the shooter may have got hold of

:01:18.:01:23.

a gun. Yes, the Sheriff you just heard they didn't reveal how the

:01:24.:01:26.

shooter got the gun over where he came from, but the county

:01:27.:01:32.

commissioner has said that the shooter was a passenger on a flight

:01:33.:01:36.

that came from Canada and that he had checked his gun, he claimed his

:01:37.:01:41.

bag, had gone into the bathroom and loaded it and then came out

:01:42.:01:45.

shooting. As I said, the showers didn't confirm that the county

:01:46.:01:49.

Commissioner is the local executive so is probably being briefed by law

:01:50.:01:54.

enforcement. According to witnesses, the shooter just calmly and quietly

:01:55.:01:58.

walked through the baggage claim area, firing and reloading his gun

:01:59.:02:02.

at least once, didn't say anything. People were screaming and running

:02:03.:02:06.

and trying to hide and panicking and then he was arrested, according to

:02:07.:02:10.

the Sheriff, without being shot himself and is in custody and as far

:02:11.:02:14.

as the investigation has discovered and it is very early days yet here,

:02:15.:02:20.

they say they believe he was the only shooter and they are trying to

:02:21.:02:22.

find out now whether he was acting alone or whether he was part of an

:02:23.:02:27.

organisation. We don't know any more about the motive, do we? No

:02:28.:02:33.

information about that at all. We don't know if it was a loner or

:02:34.:02:38.

somebody who was mentally disturbed or whether it was a terrorist act.

:02:39.:02:44.

None of those things, the investigation has revealed so far.

:02:45.:02:48.

But the FBI have come in to help out the local police. They are now sort

:02:49.:02:53.

of helping the police but if it looks like it is going to be decided

:02:54.:02:59.

that it isn't a terrorist attack, the FBI will take over. They haven't

:03:00.:03:04.

done so at this point, they'll still trying to find out what motivated

:03:05.:03:06.

this man and whether he was acting alone. About 90 minutes after he was

:03:07.:03:11.

arrested when things have calmed down, suddenly there was a panic

:03:12.:03:15.

again with reports of gunfire at another terminal, so you had police

:03:16.:03:19.

and people running again in panic but the sheriff said that there

:03:20.:03:25.

hadn't been any other shooter discovered, that there was only one,

:03:26.:03:31.

there were no other gun fired and nevertheless, you heard him say it

:03:32.:03:34.

is an active and fluid situation and they are trying to evacuate the

:03:35.:03:37.

airport and a lot of people still sheltering places, some have landed

:03:38.:03:42.

and haven't been able to get off so there was a discussion about whether

:03:43.:03:46.

they should just take off again and land somewhere else, so right now,

:03:47.:03:50.

there is a big focus on clearing the airport passengers safely and going

:03:51.:03:53.

through and sweeping it clean and making sure there is no other

:03:54.:03:57.

threat. Barbara Plett usher, thank you very much.

:03:58.:03:59.

President elect Donald Trump has released a statement describing

:04:00.:04:06.

a briefing from senior intelligance officials as "constructive".

:04:07.:04:12.

Mr Trump has ends a cuddle it suggested the investigation into

:04:13.:04:17.

hacking is a political witchhunt against him.

:04:18.:04:19.

He says he will appoint a team to deal with cyber hacking within 90

:04:20.:04:23.

And he says that while Russia, China and other countries and outside

:04:24.:04:36.

groups and people are consistently trying to break through the cyber

:04:37.:04:40.

infrastructure, there was absolutely no effect on the outcome of the

:04:41.:04:43.

election and no tampering whatsoever with voting machines.

:04:44.:04:46.

Let's cross live to Washington where we can speak to Katty Kay.

:04:47.:04:51.

First of all, with this particular statement that Donald Trump has

:04:52.:04:59.

released, it's not exactly an about-face, is it? Not really. He is

:05:00.:05:03.

tacitly acknowledging that the Russians, amongst other countries,

:05:04.:05:08.

Russia, China and other countries, are consistently trying to break

:05:09.:05:12.

through our cyber defences, so he is acknowledging that there has been

:05:13.:05:16.

outsider tampering and he also says very firmly that this didn't affect

:05:17.:05:21.

the outcome of the American election and he says that America needs to

:05:22.:05:26.

control aggressively itself against cyber attacks like this, so in a way

:05:27.:05:33.

it is a tacit acknowledgement that Russia was involved in hacking, but

:05:34.:05:37.

not an outright condemnation of Moscow, which is, of course, where

:05:38.:05:42.

other Republicans, Democrats, Hillary Clinton and indeed the US

:05:43.:05:45.

intelligence services themselves have been heading. There is also

:05:46.:05:54.

this report that we expected would come out next week, that has now

:05:55.:05:58.

emerged and there are details. Tell us about that and whether it is in

:05:59.:06:01.

line with this Donald Trump statement. I have just got that and

:06:02.:06:06.

we are reading it right now. This is the declassified version of the

:06:07.:06:12.

report Donald Trump was given access to today up in Trump Tower and, of

:06:13.:06:16.

course, the administration has already seen as well. This is the

:06:17.:06:20.

report that has been drawn up by the US intelligence services on the

:06:21.:06:24.

hacking of the American presidential election. They have given us access

:06:25.:06:29.

to their key findings and the most interest is -- interesting is they

:06:30.:06:33.

are saying the Russian goal was to undermine public faith and denigrate

:06:34.:06:37.

Secretary Clinton and harm her electability. So they are saying the

:06:38.:06:42.

Russians deliberately targeted Secretary Clinton and they are

:06:43.:06:45.

associating this with President Putin and the Russian Government. So

:06:46.:06:50.

I think what we have seen from them is in line really with what we heard

:06:51.:06:55.

in news reports last night that the Russians did this, that this went to

:06:56.:06:57.

the Russian Government and it was an active effort to hamper Hillary

:06:58.:07:02.

Clinton's chances of winning the US presidential election. You have been

:07:03.:07:08.

speaking to outgoing Secretary of State John Kerry and he said... He

:07:09.:07:12.

had a bit to say about this issue, tell us about that. Earlier today,

:07:13.:07:19.

Donald Trump had said, again, dismissed the idea really that there

:07:20.:07:25.

was so much attention on the Russian hacking of the election and I asked

:07:26.:07:30.

him about what he thought about Donald Trump's reaction to this

:07:31.:07:37.

whole affair. We have an extraordinary professional

:07:38.:07:39.

intelligence community. The men and women who work every day to give us

:07:40.:07:44.

information are patriots and hard workers and some of them sometimes,

:07:45.:07:49.

in many different ways, are doing things in places of great risk, in

:07:50.:07:54.

order that we can be informed and make decisions. I think a DNI

:07:55.:08:00.

Clapper could not have spoken more clearly, he said that healthy

:08:01.:08:05.

disparagement is a good thing and disparagement is not and he felt it

:08:06.:08:08.

fell on the side of disparagement, so he has spoken to this

:08:09.:08:12.

administration and I will leave it on that. Where does this leave us

:08:13.:08:18.

all know? I think what John Kerry was referring to there and what is

:08:19.:08:21.

critical here is what is going to be Donald Trump's relationship now with

:08:22.:08:29.

US intelligence services? Because as director Clapper had suggested, the

:08:30.:08:32.

intelligence services do feel they have been denigrated by Donald

:08:33.:08:37.

Trump. There is going to be a crisis that hits the Trump administration

:08:38.:08:40.

on the foreign policy front, it is almost bound to happen at some point

:08:41.:08:43.

during his presidency and he will need those intelligence services to

:08:44.:08:48.

provide analysis and provide ideas on how to keep America safe and I

:08:49.:08:52.

think that is the concern that some people in the intelligence services

:08:53.:08:57.

have here, that to come into the administration having created so

:08:58.:09:01.

much bad blood between intelligence officers and the new president isn't

:09:02.:09:05.

in this country's interests, it doesn't provide the best working

:09:06.:09:08.

relationship and it doesn't mean that Donald Trump is going to be

:09:09.:09:12.

getting the best advice from those intelligence services, so this is

:09:13.:09:16.

defining issue. Donald Trump's transition in the weeks running up

:09:17.:09:22.

to his inauguration are being dominated by this hacking story and

:09:23.:09:26.

how he is handling it and the intelligence services and it puts

:09:27.:09:29.

the CIA and other intelligence officials into very difficult

:09:30.:09:35.

position. Kathie Kay in Washington with excellent analysis as always

:09:36.:09:39.

and we can join her on world News America later this evening, where

:09:40.:09:42.

she will have much more about her interview with John Kerry, the

:09:43.:09:46.

outgoing Secretary of State. Now look at some of the day's other

:09:47.:09:48.

news. Police in Bangladesh say they have

:09:49.:09:49.

killed one of the masterminds of last year's terror attack on a cafe

:09:50.:09:52.

in the capital Dhaka which left 20 hostages - mostly foreigners

:09:53.:09:55.

- dead. Nurul Islam Marzan and another suspected Islamist extremist

:09:56.:09:58.

died in a pre-dawn raid The world's biggest art gallery, the

:09:59.:10:01.

Louvre in Paris, says the number of foreign visitors fell by 20% last

year in the wake of Islamist attacks in the city and

:10:10.:10:12.

elsewhere in France. The director of the Louvre, Jean-Luc Martinez, said

:10:13.:10:15.

the drop in visitor numbers had cost the museum more than $10.5 million.

the greatest honour of my life An iceberg about fifty times

:11:59.:12:02.

the size of Manhattan is close to breaking away

:12:03.:12:14.

from the Antarctic ice shelf. If and when it happens,

:12:15.:12:17.

it would be one of the Scientists have been monitoring

:12:18.:12:19.

the break-up for months. They say climate change is not to

:12:20.:12:29.

blame. Stretching for around

:12:30.:12:36.

100 miles in length, the 100-yard wide rift in the Larsen

:12:37.:12:38.

ice shelf has grown rapidly Just 12 miles of frozen material

:12:39.:12:41.

is keeping this enormous iceberg Collapsing ice shelves

:12:42.:12:44.

are common in Antarctica. As these pictures show,

:12:45.:12:48.

these fragmentations can dramatically affect the landscape,

creating icebergs of A team of British researchers have

:12:50.:12:51.

been travelling to Antarctica to monitor the growing rift

:12:52.:12:56.

in the Larsen sea ice shelf for several years,

:12:57.:12:59.

but they have been surprised by the dramatic expansion

:13:00.:13:02.

in the rift that's taken place What we've found is that the rift

:13:03.:13:06.

that's been in this ice shelf for a number of years has broken

:13:07.:13:11.

through another 18 kilometres and is now at risk of giving birth

:13:12.:13:14.

to an iceberg about a quarter And the significance

:13:15.:13:18.

of that is it is a very large iceberg that will go out

:13:19.:13:22.

into the open ocean, but the remaining ice shelf

we believe will be less stable When large icebergs break off

the edge off an ice shelf like the Larsen B in 2002,

:13:28.:13:34.

it can have a dramatic effect on the stability

of the whole structure. At Larsen B, most of the remaining

:13:38.:13:39.

shelf disintegrated Experts at the British Antarctic

:13:40.:13:41.

Survey are worried that any new iceberg formation

:13:42.:13:46.

could have long-term consequences. When the ice shelf loses this ice,

:13:47.:13:50.

it may then start to collapse and if that were to occur,

:13:51.:13:54.

then the glaciers that feed the ice shelf could flow faster

:13:55.:13:58.

and contribute more to sea-level When it shears away,

:13:59.:14:02.

the new iceberg will be one of the biggest recorded -

:14:03.:14:08.

around 50 times the size But despite concerns

:14:09.:14:10.

about the impact of global warning, researchers they receive no evidence

:14:11.:14:15.

evidence that climate change is playing any significant role

:14:16.:14:17.

in the new iceberg's formation. Well, much more coming up, including

:14:18.:14:33.

:14:34.:14:36.

his jaw rebuilt using 3-D technology.

The Japanese people are in mourning following the death of Emperor

:14:44.:14:50.

Hirohito. Thousands converged on the Imperial Palace to pay their

:14:51.:14:52.

respects when it was announced he was dead. Good grief. After half a

:14:53.:14:58.

century of delighting fans around the world, Charlie Brown and the

:14:59.:15:01.

rest of the gang are calling it quits. The singer Paul Simon starts

latest headlines: five people have been killed in a shooting at Fort

Lauderdale International airport in Florida. And US intelligence

:15:57.:16:00.

officials have released a report saying Russian President Vladimir

:16:01.:16:03.

Putin directly try to influence the US presidential election to

:16:04.:16:06.

undermine Hillary Clinton and support Donald Trump. Now, for much

:16:07.:16:16.

of the past month, a huge swathe of northern China has been shrouded in

:16:17.:16:17.

a thick layer of toxic smog. Pollution has reached such high

:16:18.:16:21.

levels that Beijing's met office this week issued a warning

:16:22.:16:23.

against venturing out into the snow because of fears it's

:16:24.:16:26.

dangerously contaminated. Somewhere, underneath this

:16:27.:16:28.

murky gloom, is a city And for the unfortunate

:16:29.:16:33.

residents, this is normal. For the past 30 days,

:16:34.:16:43.

the average air quality in this city has measured as hazardous

:16:44.:16:47.

on the official scale. You can smell, even taste the coal

:16:48.:16:52.

dust in the air, the grim, tangible reality of this country's

:16:53.:16:57.

model of economic growth. And people have no choice

:16:58.:17:02.

but to live, eat and sleep in this "It's like living under a cloud",

:17:03.:17:07.

this noodle seller tells me. "The smog is harming

:17:08.:17:17.

my children's health". "Of course I want to leave",

:17:18.:17:22.

this man says, "but I can't afford to, and anyway,

:17:23.:17:24.

the whole country is polluted". 200 miles away, the pollution

:17:25.:17:31.

literally rolled into A toxic mix of coal dust from power

:17:32.:17:37.

stations and car exhaust. The smog now regularly blankets

:17:38.:17:47.

a huge swathe of northern China. And it is believed to cause

:17:48.:17:52.

more than a million Public concern has forced

:17:53.:17:54.

the Chinese government to begin investing heavily

:17:55.:18:02.

in renewable energy. Those working in the sector believe

:18:03.:18:07.

China can clean up its air, just as wealthier and more developed

:18:08.:18:11.

countries once had to. So the experience in the UK,

:18:12.:18:14.

they have spent, I think, over 40 years in solving

:18:15.:18:17.

the air pollution issues. Actually, we don't need that much

:18:18.:18:21.

time for the science research. We don't need that much time

:18:22.:18:29.

to develop relevant technologies. So I think a lot of things are ripe

:18:30.:18:35.

for us to make faster solutions. Those solutions can't come fast

:18:36.:18:42.

enough for this city. Fossil fuels may have lifted China's

:18:43.:18:47.

economy to ever greater heights, Now the sport. British cyclist Chris

:18:48.:19:11.

Froome says he turned down the chance to use a therapeutic use

:19:12.:19:14.

exemption in 2015 because of moral concerns. The three times Tour de

:19:15.:19:18.

France winner has twice previously used medications under the rule, but

:19:19.:19:22.

when given the option during a race two years ago, he chose not to. They

:19:23.:19:30.

basically said, your condition is severe enough that you need

:19:31.:19:34.

medication and the medication you need would require a TUE. And that

:19:35.:19:40.

didn't sit well with me at the time. I didn't feel as if having a TUE in

:19:41.:19:44.

the last week of the Tour de France was something I was prepared to...

:19:45.:19:50.

Didn't sit well morally with me that that was something I was going to

:19:51.:19:53.

do. You think therefore it is right we are asking questions of things

:19:54.:19:59.

like Bradley Wiggins having three corticosteroids in the run-up to the

:20:00.:20:03.

races? I think it is healthy to ask those questions but yeah, I am not

:20:04.:20:07.

giving commentary on his situation, that is something he is going to

:20:08.:20:12.

have to address himself. That was Natalie Perks asking the questions

:20:13.:20:15.

and it's important to add there is no suggestion that serve Bradley

:20:16.:20:19.

Wiggins has done anything wrong, he was prescribed the TUE for his

:20:20.:20:23.

asthma. The opening match of the third round of the FA Cup is under

:20:24.:20:27.

way, between two Premier League sides, West Ham and Manchester City,

:20:28.:20:32.

but it is very one-sided. With 70 minutes gone, West Ham are losing

:20:33.:20:37.

4-0 at the London stadium. With the Australian Open just ten

:20:38.:20:42.

days away, the world's top two male tennis players are having the ideal

:20:43.:20:46.

warm up, through to the final of the Qatar open. Novak Djokovic is

:20:47.:20:49.

through after beating Fernando Verdasco while world number one Andy

:20:50.:20:52.

Murray beat Tomas Berdych in straight sets. It is Andy Murray's

:20:53.:20:57.

28th win in a row. The final takes place on Saturday. And that is the

:20:58.:21:01.

sport. Thank you very much.

:21:02.:21:04.

There is increasing talk about all the different ways 3D

:21:05.:21:06.

printing will change our lives - but what about when it comes

:21:07.:21:09.

Surgeons are labelling the technology a revolution

:21:10.:21:12.

for the field - as the ability to print bespoke implants gives

Katie Silver's been to meet someone whose face has been

But, in 2011, he had an accident which tore

:21:21.:22:02.
