I'm James Coomarasamy. The headlines.

:00:00.:00:09.

Rescue workers in southern Colombia are searching through tonnes of mud

:00:10.:00:11.

and debris for survivors of a huge landslide.

:00:12.:00:14.

At least 200 people have been killed.

:00:15.:00:20.

20 people are drugged and murdered at a Sufi shrine in Pakistan.

:00:21.:00:23.

Theresa May tries to reassure the people of Gibraltar saying

:00:24.:00:28.

Britain will work with the territory to get the best

basin. At least 200 people have been killed but with hundreds of others

:01:15.:01:17.

injured or missing, the Colombian president says it is impossible to

:01:18.:01:20.

know what the eventual death toll will be. The torrent of mud engulfed

:01:21.:01:23.

the town of Mocoa, where rescue efforts are being hampered by bad

:01:24.:01:25.

weather. Richard Lister reports. When the rolling wall

for survivors is continuing. Rescue workers moving quietly

:02:15.:02:17.

"she's called Luisa". Closest to the river,

:02:18.:02:29.

the streets are now boulder fields, full of people trying to retrieve

:02:30.:02:32.

what they can of their lives. The shock of this disaster

:02:33.:02:37.

is still sinking in. The rains that caused this flood

:02:38.:02:43.

were unusually heavy, but deforestation upstream played

:02:44.:02:46.

a part, too. This town of 40,000 people is still

:02:47.:02:51.

without power or fresh water. The homeless need housing,

:02:52.:02:56.

the infrastructure needs to be Deep in the Amazon Basin,

:02:57.:02:59.

Mocoa was hard to reach before. Now, with roads and bridges washed

:03:00.:03:05.

away, the challenge is even greater. Earlier, I spoke with

:03:06.:03:11.

Dimitri O'Donnell, a journalist in Bogota who's following this

:03:12.:03:19.

story, and who gave me this update. President sandals has returned to

:03:20.:03:30.

Mocoa in the last couple of hours and released the latest official

:03:31.:03:34.

figures from the grief stricken region, saying 207 people are now

:03:35.:03:39.

confirmed dead. They have identified 85 bodies, 43 of whom are children.

:03:40.:03:42.

There are still more than 300 people missing and 400 people are reported

:03:43.:03:50.

injured. There's a big team of estate agencies in Mocoa right now

:03:51.:03:56.

-- state agencies. 1200 at the last count including the army, police,

:03:57.:03:59.

Navy, civil defence and the Red Cross and they are doing all they

:04:00.:04:03.

can to coordinate their efforts. For example, the armies have been based

:04:04.:04:07.

at different road junctions around Mocoa, trying to rebuild them as

:04:08.:04:11.

quickly as they can to speed up the access of humanitarian supplies to

:04:12.:04:14.

the region which was delayed in the early hours of the search and rescue

:04:15.:04:19.

operation. It has been described as the worst that will disaster in

:04:20.:04:22.

Colombia in decades, certainly the worst since 1994 and overnight, the

:04:23.:04:30.

army and the air force took out 22 people, airlifting them to hospital,

:04:31.:04:33.

13 of whom were children who were said to be in a very serious

:04:34.:04:36.

condition and the operation are still ongoing today. Some individual

:04:37.:04:41.

stories coming out from the region as well? That's right, as the rescue

:04:42.:04:45.

operation continues, stories have been emerging of the desperate

:04:46.:04:49.

lengths some survivors are going to to locate their loved ones. One of

:04:50.:04:53.

them is a mother of three, Maria, and she has been beamed all over

:04:54.:04:58.

Colombia, on TV, radio, people talking about her on Twitter. She

:04:59.:05:02.

was not at home in her village on Mocoa on Friday night when the

:05:03.:05:06.

avalanche of mud and water struck but her three daughters were. They

:05:07.:05:12.

are aged four, 13 and 22 and the eldest was pregnant. Everything was

:05:13.:05:16.

wiped away in the village, one of the five destroyed villages, and

:05:17.:05:19.

Maria has not been able to find her three daughters since Friday night.

:05:20.:05:22.

Images of her desperately searching through the rubble in muddy clothes

:05:23.:05:27.

have been shown all over Colombia. They have really touched the hearts

:05:28.:05:31.

of Colombians. She has been giving interviews, saying she's not going

:05:32.:05:34.

to give up until she finds her girls. She says they were all she

:05:35.:05:38.

had and they had big dreams and she is going to stay on site until she

:05:39.:05:43.

locates them. That is just one story of the many people that are still

:05:44.:05:46.

looking for loved ones in Mocoa this afternoon.

:05:47.:05:49.

Police in Pakistan say at least 20 people have been killed

:05:50.:05:52.

by the custodian of a Sufi shrine close to the Pakistani city of

:05:53.:05:55.

The victims, who are said to have been his spiritual disciples,

:05:56.:06:00.

include five members of the same family.

:06:01.:06:02.

With the details, here's the BBC's Secunder Kermani in Islamabad.

:06:03.:06:08.

A place of worship turns to a scene of horror.

:06:09.:06:11.

Followers of a local saint were reportedly drugged,

:06:12.:06:15.

20 bodies were brought to hospital late last night,

:06:16.:06:22.

after four people managed to escape and raised the alarm.

:06:23.:06:25.

The killer is believed to be this man, Abdul Waheed,

:06:26.:06:29.

the custodian of the shrine, arrested by police along

:06:30.:06:37.

TRANSLATION: The three accused, who are under arrest,

:06:38.:06:41.

As they kept arriving, they were torturing

:06:42.:06:48.

In Islamabad, mourners gathered to pay their respects at the home

:06:49.:06:55.

of one of the victims, Asif Bid Ali.

:06:56.:07:02.

The shrine where this attack happened was

:07:03.:07:03.

The suspected killer was one of his followers.

:07:04.:07:06.

TRANSLATION: Waheed used to take care of this shrine,

:07:07.:07:09.

There had been reports that devotees at this shrine would be regularly

:07:10.:07:20.

In Pakistan, some spiritual leaders have been known

:07:21.:07:24.

to abuse their position but this mass killing has

:07:28.:07:33.

The Iraqi army is making progress in its fight against the so-called

:07:34.:07:37.

Islamic State group in its one-time stronghold of Mosul.

:07:38.:07:41.

As the battle continues in the residential parts of western

:07:42.:07:44.

Mosul, one of the challenges is stopping the group's car bombs.

:07:45.:07:47.

The BBC's defence correspondent Jonathan Beale sent this

:07:48.:07:49.

They are just building barricades on these streets which have recently

:07:50.:07:56.

been liberated from so-called Islamic State, to prevent car bombs.

:07:57.:08:02.

There is one that didn't go off round the corner.

:08:03.:08:04.

They managed to kill the driver before he detonated it.

:08:05.:08:06.

This is just a few hundred yards from the front line.

:08:07.:08:10.

We can occasionally hear gunfire from so-called Islamic State.

:08:11.:08:15.

The streets are wide enough to drive armoured vehicles up,

:08:16.:08:23.

trucks and the like, but when they get into the old city

:08:24.:08:27.

itself, there are narrow alleyways where they won't be able to drive

:08:28.:08:31.

armoured vehicles at all and the fighting

:08:32.:08:33.

there is going to be much, much harder.

:08:34.:08:37.

The Serbian Prime Minister, Aleksandar Vucic, is projected

:08:38.:08:41.

to have won a clear victory in the country's

:08:42.:08:44.

If early results and exit polls are confirmed,

:08:45.:08:50.

Mr Vucic will have averted a second round of voting by

:08:51.:08:52.

The post of president has been largely ceremonial,

:08:53.:08:56.

but analysts believe it would become more influential under

:08:57.:08:58.

Mr Vucic, who's been Prime Minister since 2014.

:08:59.:09:01.

People in Ecuador are voting to chose a successor

:09:02.:09:03.

to President Rafael Correa, who's leaving office

:09:04.:09:06.

The left-wing candidate Lenin Moreno narrowly failed to win

:09:07.:09:12.

outright in the first round, but his opponent Guillermo Lasso has

:09:13.:09:14.

the backing of other opposition candidates.

:09:15.:09:18.

Firefighters in Dubai battled for hours to contain a blaze

:09:19.:09:20.

at a 60-storey tower that was under construction.

:09:21.:09:23.

Roads in the area, which is popular with tourists, were closed.

:09:24.:09:27.

The authorities say no-one was injured.

:09:28.:09:30.

Several tall buildings in Dubai have caught fire in recent years,

:09:31.:09:34.

leading to stricter safety regulations for new structures.

:09:35.:09:37.

A Brazilian reconnaissance aircraft has joined the Uruguayan navy

:09:38.:09:41.

and several merchant ships in the search for 22 missing sailors

:09:42.:09:45.

The sailors were on board a South Korean cargo vessel

:09:46.:09:51.

Two Filipino crew members have been rescued from a life raft.

:09:52.:10:03.

The Prime Minister Theresa May has told the people

:10:04.:10:05.

of Gibraltar that the UK would "never" allow it to slip

:10:06.:10:08.

from British control against their will.

:10:09.:10:09.

In a telephone call aimed at reassuring Gibraltar

:10:10.:10:15.

about its future after Brexit, Mrs May said Britain

:10:16.:10:17.

Here's our political correspondent Iain Watson.

:10:18.:10:20.

Legend has it, when the Barbary apes leave Gibraltar,

:10:21.:10:22.

Well, they are still here, but the 30,000 human residents

:10:23.:10:29.

of the Rock who want to remain British are worried that the Spanish

:10:30.:10:33.

government could soon have more say over their lives.

:10:34.:10:37.

The EU has said that after Brexit, London will have

:10:38.:10:40.

to talk directly to Spain about the territory's future.

:10:41.:10:43.

A former Conservative leader said the UK's commitment to Gibraltar

:10:44.:10:46.

would be no different than its commitment

:10:47.:10:48.

Another woman Prime Minister sent a task force halfway

:10:49.:10:54.

across the world to protect another small group of British

:10:55.:10:58.

people against another Spanish-speaking country.

:10:59.:11:01.

Four days after triggering the Brexit process, there is no

:11:02.:11:06.

serious talk of conflict with a Nato ally.

:11:07.:11:09.

In fact, Spain appears more interested in talking about trade

:11:10.:11:13.

than seizing territory, perhaps raising questions

:11:14.:11:16.

about Gibraltar's low tax regime and its policing

:11:17.:11:18.

The BBC has been told that Gibraltar did ask Downing Street specifically

:11:19.:11:24.

to mention its interests in a letter the Prime Minister sent

:11:25.:11:27.

to the European Union to trigger the whole Brexit process.

:11:28.:11:30.

Well, of course, we know that did not happen.

:11:31.:11:32.

But today, Theresa May got on the telephone to the most senior

:11:33.:11:35.

politician in Gibraltar and pledged her steadfast support,

:11:36.:11:42.

not just for the Rock's sovereignty, but also for its economy.

:11:43.:11:45.

And the Chief Minister of Gibraltar seemed reassured.

:11:46.:11:49.

When the time comes, we will be making the right

:11:50.:11:52.

decisions with the Prime Minister leading us in those negotiations,

:11:53.:11:54.

which will be in the interests of the people of Gibraltar

:11:55.:11:57.

But Labour say the Brexit process still poses

:11:58.:12:01.

How will the deal that we come to with the European Union affect

:12:02.:12:06.

So to what extent will they have access to the single market

:12:07.:12:12.

and the customs union, because their economy

:12:13.:12:14.

could be strangled if the negotiations go wrong.

:12:15.:12:18.

This is just the start of the process of leaving

:12:19.:12:20.

Downing Street has moved to defuse any row with Gibraltar,

:12:21.:12:24.

but difficult negotiations with the European Union

:12:25.:12:27.

Our correspondent Tom Burridge is in Gibraltar, and he gave

:12:28.:12:36.

us his thoughts as to how people there are reacting to the debate.

:12:37.:12:40.

People are worried here in Gibraltar.

:12:41.:12:43.

I do not think Brexit really impacts the debate over

:12:44.:12:46.

Britain and Spain will probably never agree on that.

:12:47.:13:00.

What this claim by the European Union, that Spain can decide whether

:13:01.:13:05.

or not a deal between Britain and the EU in a future will apply to

:13:06.:13:11.

Gibraltar or not, the European Union seems to be suggesting that

:13:12.:13:14.

Gibraltar is a bargaining chip in the wider Brexit negotiation and

:13:15.:13:19.

that really puts in jeopardy the whole Gibraltar way of life, if you

:13:20.:13:24.

like. The economy here, the relationship Gibraltar has enjoyed

:13:25.:13:26.

as an overseas territory with the rest of the European Union, which

:13:27.:13:30.

has been distinct from the rest of the UK. So as you say, nothing new,

:13:31.:13:36.

in a sense, this argument, but what about the sabre rattling we have

:13:37.:13:41.

heard from Lord Howe and the former leader of the Conservative Party?

:13:42.:13:45.

Where people at that? I've covered Gibraltar for a few years. Basically

:13:46.:13:52.

the rhetoric coming from Madrid and the threats, the criticism, the

:13:53.:13:57.

claims of questioning Gibraltar's British sovereignty, are

:13:58.:14:00.

predictable. People here are used at that. And they are also used to the

:14:01.:14:04.

British government sticking up for them. The language, of course,

:14:05.:14:08.

coming out of some British politicians today is probably a

:14:09.:14:12.

notch up, but that is not you know, surprising, that kind of rhetoric. I

:14:13.:14:16.

think what is interesting now is how much Gibraltar is a part of that

:14:17.:14:22.

wider Brexit negotiation between Brussels and London. The border we

:14:23.:14:27.

are on, there's spin traffic flowing out of Gibraltar into Spain freely

:14:28.:14:31.

this evening. That is normally the case and that is all crucial for

:14:32.:14:35.

Gibraltar's economy. It is one of the most affluent places, GDP per

:14:36.:14:41.

capita, in the world. And if Gibraltar wants that to continue,

:14:42.:14:45.

then it needs to have a favourable relationship with the European Union

:14:46.:14:50.

wants Britain exits. And it's Spain has that leveraged and can say,

:14:51.:14:54.

"Actually, we are not happy that the wider deal Britain has got applies

:14:55.:14:59.

to Gibraltar", well, that makes things here very complicated and the

:15:00.:15:02.

wider Brexit negotiation between Britain and the EU even harder.

:15:03.:15:05.

Still to come: We'll have all the sports news for you -

:15:06.:15:10.

including the highlights of this year's Oxford and

:15:11.:15:12.

The accident that happened here was of the sort that can add was Prydie

:15:13.:15:27.

is a meltdown. In this case, precautions worked but not quite

:15:28.:15:29.

well enough to prevent some old fears about the safety features of

:15:30.:15:31.

these stations from resurfacing. The Republic of Ireland has become

:15:32.:15:49.

the first country in the world to ban smoking in workplaces, from

:15:50.:15:52.

today, anyone lighting up inside will face a heavy fine. The

:15:53.:15:56.

president was on his way out of the Washington Hilton Hotel where he had

:15:57.:16:00.

been addressing a trade union conference. The small crowd outside

:16:01.:16:04.

included his assailant. It has become a symbol of Paris, 100 years

:16:05.:16:08.

:16:09.:16:12.

birthday is being marked by a re-enactment of the first ascent by

:16:13.:16:13.

Gustave Eiffel. This is BBC World News.

:16:14.:16:22.

I'm James Coomarasamy. In Colombia, hundreds of rescue

:16:23.:16:24.

workers and troops are continuing to dig for survivors in the torrent

:16:25.:16:32.

of mud and water that's obliterated 20 people have been murdered and

:16:33.:16:42.

others wounded at a Sufi shrine in Pakistan's Punjab province.

:16:43.:16:44.

Russian police have arrested at least 40 protesters,

:16:45.:16:47.

following another anti-corruption demonstration in Moscow.

:16:48.:16:50.

The authorities say the latest protests were unsanctioned,

:16:51.:16:52.

and that they had warned people to stay away.

:16:53.:16:58.

More than 1,000 people were detained in Russia a week ago

:16:59.:17:01.

after larger-scale protests across the country.

:17:02.:17:02.

From Moscow, Sarah Rainsford reports.

:17:03.:17:06.

The latest protest was small, but the police response was heavy.

:17:07.:17:09.

Officers began making arrests as soon as the crowds moved down

:17:10.:17:12.

Moscow's main street towards the Kremlin.

:17:13.:17:14.

Others were detained near Red Square.

:17:15.:17:18.

This was nothing like the scale of last weekend's mass

:17:19.:17:21.

rallies that took place across Russia against corruption.

:17:22.:17:26.

But the fact so many people were arrested,

:17:27.:17:28.

at even a minor event, suggests concerns that

:17:29.:17:33.

TRANSLATION: Roughly speaking, the scale

:17:34.:17:42.

The issue is that people have questions and they are not

:17:43.:17:46.

If there were any questions over the protests the other week,

:17:47.:17:50.

whether it was related to Navalny and so on, now it is obvious

:17:51.:17:53.

the problem has escalated, because there are so many

:17:54.:17:55.

Police had issued warnings ahead of time that this rally was not

:17:56.:17:59.

A criminal investigation has been opened, targeting

:18:00.:18:07.

whoever posted information about the protest online.

:18:08.:18:08.

If they are found, they face prosecution for inciting

:18:09.:18:11.

Thousands of demonstrators have much to the streets of Budapest in

diplomas. Roger Federer has beaten

:18:34.:18:36.

Rafael Nadal in straight sets to claim his third Miami Masters

:18:37.:18:43.

title and first since 2006. The Swiss was a 6-3, 6-4 winner,

:18:44.:18:46.

and it's the third final this year where Federer has beaten

:18:47.:18:51.

the Spaniard, having won the Australian Open

:18:52.:18:52.

and Indian Wells Masters For Nadal it's also a fifth loss

:18:53.:18:54.

in the final of this event, while the 35-year-old Federer,

:18:55.:18:58.

who returned at the start of this year after a long-term injury

:18:59.:19:03.

lay-off, will move to fourth when the latest

:19:04.:19:05.

rankings are released. To the English Premier League

:19:06.:19:06.

where Arsenal missed the chance to move to fifth after their 2-2

:19:07.:19:09.

draw with Manchester A win would've taken Arsenal manager

:19:10.:19:11.

Arsene Wenger's side, who are currently sixth,

:19:12.:19:16.

ahead of Manchester United but a draw may have sufficed

:19:17.:19:17.

in the end after Leroy Sane gave City the lead after

:19:18.:19:21.

just four minutes. Theo Walcott equalised

:19:22.:19:23.

in the 42nd minute before Sergio Aguero handed his side

:19:24.:19:26.

a 2-1 half-time advantage. Shkodran Mustafi scored the only

:19:27.:19:30.

goal of the second half but there was controversy late

:19:31.:19:34.

on when Nacho Monreal appeared to handle the ball in the penalty

:19:35.:19:36.

area which wasn't given. So Pep Guardiola's side remain

:19:37.:19:39.

fourth in the table. Monreal said he touched the ball

:19:40.:19:52.

with his hand, yeah? Yeah, but he said to me in England, that kind of

:19:53.:19:56.

situation is normal. I said to the referee, what did I say? I said to

:19:57.:20:00.
