Four Israeli soldiers are killed in Jerusalem -

:00:00.:00:16.

after a man drives a lorry into them.

:00:17.:00:30.

Icy temperatures in Europe lead to the deaths of more than 20 people

:00:31.:00:36.

across the continent. Also coming up -

:00:37.:00:41.

the former Iranian President Rafsanjani has died at the age of

:00:42.:00:45.

82. We'll get a round-up of the latest sports news, including the

:00:46.:00:50.

scores from England's FA Cup. It hasn't been all plain sailing for

:00:51.:00:51.

the Premier League teams. Four Israeli shoulders, three of

:00:52.:01:12.

them women, have been killed in Jerusalem after a man drove a truck

:01:13.:01:16.

into them. Israel says it was a terror attack, carried out by a

:01:17.:01:20.

Palestinian who was then shot dead at the scene. The Israeli Prime

:01:21.:01:24.

Minister claims the attacker was a supporter of the so-called Islamic

:01:25.:01:28.

State. The victims were three Army cadets and one officer. They were

:01:29.:01:33.

standing in a popular beauty spot, which overlooks the old city of

:01:34.:01:43.

Jerusalem,. A warning, this report contains to stressing images.

:01:44.:01:48.

This is what Israeli soldiers on a training

:01:49.:01:52.

Security camera footage shows two groups.

:01:53.:01:56.

The one in the background has just got off a coach

:01:57.:01:59.

The lorry drives at the soldiers at high speed and hits them.

:02:00.:02:07.

Then it backs up quickly, apparently trying to crush more

:02:08.:02:10.

people before the driver is shot dead.

:02:11.:02:13.

He is said to have been a Palestinian from a nearby

:02:14.:02:16.

Witnesses who saw the bloody aftermath spoke of their shock.

:02:17.:02:23.

I just saw the truck going onto the sidewalk

:02:24.:02:25.

from the road and hitting the soldiers and it took me

:02:26.:02:28.

some time to understand it was a terror attack.

:02:29.:02:37.

Those who died were all in their 20s.

:02:38.:02:39.

More than a dozen others were wounded.

:02:40.:02:41.

You can still see the skid marks in the dirt here.

:02:42.:02:43.

This is the very spot where those soldiers were killed.

:02:44.:02:48.

There has been an upsurge in Palestinian attacks on Israelis

:02:49.:02:50.

in the past year or so, but this is one of the deadliest,

:02:51.:02:56.

and the use of a lorry is also something unusual.

:02:57.:02:59.

Visiting the scene, the Prime Minister said this

:03:00.:03:01.

was similar to recent attacks in Europe and it could

:03:02.:03:04.

have been inspired by the so-called Islamic State.

:03:05.:03:08.

TRANSLATION: We know the identity of the attacker.

:03:09.:03:16.

According to the signs, he was a supporter

:03:17.:03:18.

We know there has been a series of terror attacks.

:03:19.:03:22.

There definitely could be a connection between them,

:03:23.:03:24.

from France to Berlin and now Jerusalem.

:03:25.:03:42.

Israel has blamed previous attacks on incitement by Palestinian

:03:43.:03:44.

Palestinian leaders say they have been driven by anger after more

:03:45.:03:48.

than 20 years of on-and-off peace talks have failed to deliver

:03:49.:03:51.

Yuval Steinitz is Israel's energy minister.

:03:52.:04:05.

He is also a member of the security cabinet. He gave us more details

:04:06.:04:09.

about the attacker. This is a young citizen from

:04:10.:04:22.

Jerusalem, we know he was inspired by Isis and the Islamic ideal. Also,

:04:23.:04:30.

of course, he was incited, like most Palestinians from children, by the

:04:31.:04:37.

education system of the Palestinian Authority what evidence do you have

:04:38.:04:41.

that the attacker was inspired by the Islamic State, given the group

:04:42.:04:47.

has not claimed responsible at a? I'm not going to provide any

:04:48.:04:51.

details, I assume we will publish them later on. It's not an

:04:52.:04:57.

assumption. We know with confidence that this man, in the last several

:04:58.:05:01.

months, was inspired by Isis, identified himself with Isis. This

:05:02.:05:10.

is crystal clear for us. Unfortunately, what we see today,

:05:11.:05:14.

not just here in the Middle East and Israel, but in the entire world, in

:05:15.:05:21.

Europe, there are people inspired by Isis, Al-Qaeda, Hamas, or Islamic

:05:22.:05:25.

Jihad, they are driving trucks into the crowd in Berlin, in Nice and

:05:26.:05:32.

unfortunately, today in Jerusalem. The generality is very similar. It's

:05:33.:05:38.

not just against Hebrew people and the Jewish state. It is against the

:05:39.:05:46.

infidels who are not Muslims, all over the world. Of course, one of

:05:47.:05:51.

the main targets is to eliminate the Jewish state.

:05:52.:05:55.

It's been a very bloody year for Israel, with many, many people being

:05:56.:06:02.

killed. What security measures is the Israeli Government considering

:06:03.:06:08.

to protect people? We are taking many measures.

:06:09.:06:13.

Unfortunately, we are a very experienced with fighting terrorism.

:06:14.:06:20.

I can tell you that, although many times it is lone wolves, in most of

:06:21.:06:25.

the cases, we managed to intercept the terrace in advance.

:06:26.:06:32.

Unfortunately, we don't have 100% of success. What we saw today is, of

:06:33.:06:37.

course, the sad reality that we have to live with. For us, it's not just

:06:38.:06:43.

extremely sad, but also extremely frustrating.

:06:44.:06:51.

Let's move on, it's always called in parts of Europe this year. But

:06:52.:06:56.

temperatures at the moment are well below average. In some parts, colder

:06:57.:07:00.

than even the Arctic. One than 20 people have died as a result,

:07:01.:07:03.

antifreeze is expected to continue into next week.

:07:04.:07:11.

For the homeless and poor, this has been a pretty grim weekend. This

:07:12.:07:19.

abandoned house in Belgrade provide some relief, as temperatures plunged

:07:20.:07:22.

to minus extensive Aussies. Many guys are sick here. -- -16

:07:23.:07:31.

degrees. Aid organisations have been

:07:32.:07:35.

distributing blankets clothes and food to the migrants, mostly from

:07:36.:07:38.

Afghanistan and Pakistan. The next few days are critical. For

:07:39.:07:43.

the health and condition of these people, it is worsening. There is

:07:44.:07:51.

plenty of smoke, as you can see, we are seeing more respiratory

:07:52.:07:53.

infections. Freezing air from the Arctic has

:07:54.:07:56.

seen snowfall, even in the Greek islands. These images show the

:07:57.:08:02.

refugee camp in Lesbos. TRANSLATION: The Pope called on the

:08:03.:08:12.

faithful to look after the poor. The snowstorms add an extra

:08:13.:08:15.

complications are areas still recovering from last year's

:08:16.:08:20.

earthquakes in Italy. Much of central and Eastern Europe has

:08:21.:08:24.

experienced widespread travel chaos. In a mania, emergency services

:08:25.:08:27.

rescued hundreds of people stuck on the roads. Icy winds gusting at

:08:28.:08:36.

144kph. In Turkey, blizzards in Istanbul forced hundreds of flight

:08:37.:08:40.

cancellations, and even temporarily closed the Bosporus state to

:08:41.:08:47.

stripping. Top of the code list goes to Russia, temperatures plummeted to

:08:48.:08:51.

-30 Celsius. But didn't grind the country to a halt, people

:08:52.:09:06.

adding a few extra layers. The deep freeze is expected to last into next

:09:07.:09:14.

week. Less than two weeks to go into a

:09:15.:09:18.

Donald Trump's inauguration as president of the United States.

:09:19.:09:22.

There's big debate and Russia's hand in the campaign, alleged as it is. A

:09:23.:09:27.

report has been released stating that the Russian president

:09:28.:09:33.

personally ordered cyber attacks and media manipulation. In an interview

:09:34.:09:38.

to unit six media, President Obama said he an estimated the impact

:09:39.:09:42.

cyber hacking could have an election. Let's go to Washington and

:09:43.:09:48.

speak to our correspondence. In the last days of his presidency,

:09:49.:09:53.

what else did President Obama had to say?

:09:54.:09:56.

He said he hadn't underestimated Vladimir Putin. He said Mr Putin

:09:57.:10:00.

carried out these kind of campaigns many times before in Europe, but

:10:01.:10:05.

mostly in former Soviet satellite states. He said what surprised him

:10:06.:10:09.

with the impact these kind of cyber hacking and misinformation campaigns

:10:10.:10:13.

could have an open societies and more democratic societies. He urged

:10:14.:10:17.

petulant here in America, but also Nato allies that are going to have

:10:18.:10:21.

elections next year, meaning France and Germany. Who said they should

:10:22.:10:24.

not become a partisan issue, although the report concluded that

:10:25.:10:28.

Mr Putin tried to help Mr Tumble win with this campaign. -- Mr Trump when

:10:29.:10:36.

with this campaign. We have to be reminded we are on the same team and

:10:37.:10:40.

Mr Putin is not on it. On the subject of that report, we

:10:41.:10:44.

have also been hearing from Donald Trump's incoming chief of staff, he

:10:45.:10:49.

has also had interesting things to say?

:10:50.:10:53.

He said that his boss, Mr Trump, accepted it was Russia that was

:10:54.:10:58.

behind the hacking of the Democratic party organisation. Mr Trump had

:10:59.:11:03.

voiced scepticism about that. I am not sure at the statement today goes

:11:04.:11:08.

much further than what Mr Trump said after he retrieved the intelligence

:11:09.:11:12.

briefing on Friday. At that point, he was already conceding Russia had

:11:13.:11:16.

some kind of role. What was not said is that Mr Trump except the

:11:17.:11:22.

conclusions of the report, that one of the goals of Mr Putin was to help

:11:23.:11:27.

Mr Trump win, on that, the president elect has not commented. He said

:11:28.:11:32.

that the interference had the impact on the outcome of the election, he

:11:33.:11:35.

has been insistent on that. Although the report does not address that

:11:36.:11:40.

issue at all. In the last couple of hours, we have

:11:41.:11:44.

heard that Boris Johnson has arrived in New York, what more do you know?

:11:45.:11:49.

He's going to be meeting some important members of Mr Trump's

:11:50.:11:54.

inner circle. He's going to be meeting Steve Bannon, chief strategy

:11:55.:11:58.

for the White House for Mr Trump. And so Jared Kushner, Mr Trump's

:11:59.:12:05.

son-in-law and key adviser. They have Mr Trump's ear, and that will

:12:06.:12:10.

be important for Mr Johnson. They want to know with a special

:12:11.:12:13.

relationship is going to go. This is an unknown quantity, they were not

:12:14.:12:17.

expecting Mr Trump to win the election. The president has been a

:12:18.:12:24.

bit -- the British Government has been a bit annoyed that the British

:12:25.:12:28.

politician Mr Trump is closest to is Nigel Farage. Mr Trump has also said

:12:29.:12:33.

that Farage would make a good ambassador, which the British

:12:34.:12:35.

Government has said would not happen. Theresa May will meet Donald

:12:36.:12:42.

Trump in the spring, Donald Trump has tweeted to say that he is

:12:43.:12:45.

looking forward to that visit, and that the UK is a long-term ally and

:12:46.:12:47.

special friend. Let's take a look at

:12:48.:12:51.

some other stories now. Iraqi special forces have reached

:12:52.:12:53.

the banks of the river Tigris which divides the city of Mosul,

:12:54.:12:56.

almost three months after launching their assault

:12:57.:13:00.

on Islamic State forces in the city. The advance is the latest gain

:13:01.:13:02.

by Iraqi counter-terrorism service troops who've recaptured two

:13:03.:13:05.

districts in recent days. Staying in Iraq, at least eleven

:13:06.:13:11.

people have been killed in Baghdad, in a suspected suicide car bomb

:13:12.:13:14.

attack near the main The Islamic State group said it

:13:15.:13:16.

carried out the attack. The former Iranian president -

Akbar Hashemi Raf-sanjani has He was considered one of Iran's most

:13:28.:13:30.

prominent politicians - since the Iranian

:13:31.:13:34.

revolution in 1979. He died after suffering heart

:13:35.:13:38.

failure in hospital in Tehran. We can speak to someone from the

:13:39.:14:01.

Centre for Iranian studies. He was a pivotal figure in Iranian

:14:02.:14:05.

politics, but also a controversial one. How do you think he showed

:14:06.:14:09.

Iranian politics? I think they former president

address and Johnny denies -- defies classification is. On the one hand

:14:17.:14:19.

he was one of the founding fathers of the Islamic Republic. On the

:14:20.:14:24.

other hand, he is one of the founding fathers of Irani reformism.

:14:25.:14:29.

The sort we see today under President Rouhani's leadership.

:14:30.:14:34.

Do you think he achieved his ambition is?

:14:35.:14:38.

I think he did. When he put his weight and influence, his political

:14:39.:14:47.

orientation behind a candidate, for example, Rouhani, use all their

:14:48.:14:52.

electoral success was in many ways a manifestation of his vision, which

:14:53.:14:58.

was one that was, in many ways, quintessentially that of a

:14:59.:15:02.

pragmatic, practical politician, who believed that more creative measures

:15:03.:15:10.

were necessary in order to reserve and enhance the longevity of the

:15:11.:15:13.

Islamic Republic. With elections round the corner, do

:15:14.:15:16.

you think he will be missed? Absolutely. I think Iran is pushing

:15:17.:15:29.

to reform from within, from below, a gradual integrated, indigenous

:15:30.:15:32.

reform. I think he set a precedent for the type of vision we see, that

:15:33.:15:39.

rock hard a has covered for it, and really rip setting the popular will

:15:40.:15:44.

of the country. -- Rouhani has carried forward. A country that

:15:45.:15:48.

wants to integrate into the global economy and global political

:15:49.:15:54.

landscape. But at the same time once preserve its historical,

:15:55.:15:55.

revolutionary and cultural experience.

:15:56.:16:00.

Thank you very much for being with us.

:16:01.:16:06.

The French defence minister says twenty-four-thousand cyberattacks

:16:07.:16:08.

against French defence targets were thwarted last year.

:16:09.:16:24.

Theresa May has promised more controls on immigration, Theresa May

:16:25.:16:31.

says that may include leading the single market.

:16:32.:16:34.

We mustn't think that this is somehow we're coming out of

:16:35.:16:37.

membership but want to keep some bits of membership. We want to know

:16:38.:16:42.

what kind of volition ship is best for a UK that is no longer part of

:16:43.:16:49.

the EU. These will be part of negotiations once I trigger Article

:16:50.:16:53.

50. A big bit of that is what our trading relationship is. There are

:16:54.:16:58.

other areas, such as the Justice and security France, about what a

:16:59.:17:00.

relationship continues to be in those areas as well. What we're

:17:01.:17:05.

saying is, what is the right deal for the UK? Not a model that some of

:17:06.:17:10.

the elves users, but what's going to work for the UK? And I think what

:17:11.:17:17.

would be the best you for the UK would also be the best eel for the

:17:18.:17:20.

EU. We're leaving the EU, not Europe.

:17:21.:17:23.

Four Israeli army cadets are killed in Jerusalem

:17:24.:17:30.

Prime Minister Netanyahu says the attacker was a supporter

:17:31.:17:33.

Icy temperatures in Europe have led to the deaths of more than twenty

:17:34.:17:39.

The French defence minister says 24,000

:17:40.:17:50.

against French defence targets were thwarted last year.

:17:51.:17:52.

Jean-Yves Le Drian warned that France's infrastructure was at risk

:17:53.:17:55.

and that attempts could be made to subvert the French

:17:56.:18:02.

Mr Le Drian has been overseeing a radical overhaul

:18:03.:18:05.

of French cyber capabilities, which will see the head

:18:06.:18:07.

of the army taking control of a new operation, Cybercom.

:18:08.:18:17.

I am joined by a security expert in Paris. He told be more about the

:18:18.:18:24.

attacks. As a minister of defence, you are a

:18:25.:18:30.

the target of many different actors. No single group is mentioned in the

:18:31.:18:35.

report today, but we can envision an attack coming from activists who

:18:36.:18:39.

want to impact, from cybercriminals who want to steal confidential

:18:40.:18:44.

information, or even attacks from other states that want to disrupt

:18:45.:18:49.

your military operation. And steal the most confident to all

:18:50.:18:52.

information you have and change the weapons systems that you have. --

:18:53.:18:57.

confidential information. Why have we seen the ramping up of

:18:58.:19:00.

these type of attacks in the last two years?

:19:01.:19:05.

The different sectors, like sectors of the economy, are going through a

:19:06.:19:09.

digital transformation. By that is, I mean most of their processes are

:19:10.:19:17.

now running on computers and different cut ten order, even if it

:19:18.:19:22.

is adapted to the military world. These type systems are close to what

:19:23.:19:26.

the hackers are used attacking. This sort of information is increasing

:19:27.:19:30.

the probability of attack. Even if we could do things to improve our

:19:31.:19:35.

systems. How do you do that, how do you

:19:36.:19:40.

better protect your systems against sophisticated cyber attacks that

:19:41.:19:44.

we've seen, not just in France, but also the United States?

:19:45.:19:49.

You have to invest in new technology to protect these weapons systems,

:19:50.:19:53.

these operational systems. Like closing your networks, adding

:19:54.:19:58.

sensors onto computers to detect attacks. What you have to also do is

:19:59.:20:03.

invest in skills and improve your processes. These hackers are quite

:20:04.:20:10.

fast. Every time there is a new vulnerability, they are able to use

:20:11.:20:13.

it. On different sides, you need to be very quick and have proficient

:20:14.:20:19.

teams that will be able to adapt to these moving frets.

:20:20.:20:22.

How big a risk do think this is to the French elections?

:20:23.:20:33.

In France, we have looked very closely at what happened in the US,

:20:34.:20:39.

and at state level, the National cyber Security agency is working

:20:40.:20:46.

with the political parties to try to avoid being in the same situation.

:20:47.:20:54.

So no it's time for the political parties to invest in cyber security,

:20:55.:20:58.

and also to change the way they work. Because you know a political

:20:59.:21:03.

party, by default, is a very open organisation. You have to exchange a

:21:04.:21:08.

lot of information with a lot of people, very quickly. So it's and

:21:09.:21:12.

easy targets, regarding cyber-security. See had to change

:21:13.:21:16.

the way you work entirely in the political party.

:21:17.:21:20.

Lets get some sport review, here's Jessica.

:21:21.:21:33.

Plymouth Argyle have earned themselves a lucrative replay

:21:34.:21:40.

against Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp made ten changes to his starting line-up

:21:41.:21:44.

at Anfield, but they were unable to break down a stubborn Plymouth

:21:45.:21:47.

defence as the team from the south coast in themselves a

:21:48.:21:48.

replay at their stadium, home Park. It was a great day for the

:21:49.:21:58.

travelling fans. Not frustrated. I knew before the

:21:59.:22:06.

game, we could have been exactly the same. It could have been the same

:22:07.:22:11.

problem. It's not even really possible. It is a very important

:22:12.:22:16.

experience for the boys. I'm happy about this. I matter not sure it

:22:17.:22:19.

would have been the same experience with a 1-0 victory. That is good,

:22:20.:22:24.

actually. With the players they had playing

:22:25.:22:26.

for them today, they have all had a lot of first team experience in

:22:27.:22:32.

them. Yes, they had younger players, but they are at a club like

:22:33.:22:36.

Liverpool for a reason. From our point of view, we had a good

:22:37.:22:40.

defensive display. It is important we did that, allowed Liverpool the

:22:41.:22:45.

ball, but we had the ball, we created opportunities.

:22:46.:22:51.

While Liverpool stumbled, Chelsea were dominant against lower league

:22:52.:22:55.

opposition in the third round with a 4-1 win against Peterborough united.

:22:56.:23:02.

Antonio Conte made changes to his side, but there were always in

:23:03.:23:08.

control. Pedro got two goals, they also had captain John Terry sent off

:23:09.:23:13.

on his return to the first team. When you change nine players, it is

:23:14.:23:20.

never that easy to play a good game. You want to be a team, today we

:23:21.:23:27.

showed to be a team and play for the players that come in this moment,

:23:28.:23:35.

playing less. Show me a good form. Yeah, I'm satisfied for the result,

:23:36.:23:43.

and the performance of my team. A couple of other results for you.
