that entire period he did not show any signs of radicalisation.

Security forces mobilised head of the French presidential elections.

:00:36.:00:37.

The Prime Minister says everything will be done to make the election

:00:38.:00:42.

goes smoothly. As Theresa May campaigns for the upcoming election

:00:43.:00:47.

here in the UK, there are suggestions of a possible softening

:00:48.:00:50.

of her Government's promise not to raise taxes. Police investigating

:00:51.:00:58.

the bomb attack on the football team bus last week make an arrest and

:00:59.:01:01.

revealing motive may have been money. Melo last year, Harry Stiles

:01:02.:01:07.

went to number one... Can he do it again? Built Ed shearer in the claim

:01:08.:01:16.

that top spot? He had 13 weeks at number one before Harry came along

:01:17.:01:21.

as spoiled his Easter. Sounds familiar.

:01:22.:01:23.

LAUGHTER The royal couple on radio as they

:01:24.:01:28.

visit the BBC to talk about mental health and play some chart-topping

:01:29.:01:29.

music. Nearly 24 hours after his deadly

:01:30.:01:49.

attack on the Champs-Elysees, a full picture of the man who shot dead a

:01:50.:01:53.

police officer in the heart of Paris is starting to emerge. Karim Cheurfi

:01:54.:01:58.

was a violent serial offender who had spent more than 14 years in

:01:59.:02:03.

jail. French officials say he was inspected are becoming radicalised

:02:04.:02:08.

just over a year ago. Security remains tight, both in Paris and

:02:09.:02:12.

right across France, head of the first round of residential voting on

:02:13.:02:18.

Sunday. But those fatal shots fired by Karim have already cast a shadow

:02:19.:02:29.

over the ballot. In this election, not everyone fighting for influence

:02:30.:02:36.

is a politician. Last night, a lone attacker with an often Matic weapon

:02:37.:02:39.

brought chaos to the capital's well guarded heart.

:02:40.:02:43.

His target, French police. Curling a country on the cusp of an election

:02:44.:02:53.

after two years on high alert. This mobile phone footage shows the

:02:54.:02:57.

moment he killed a policeman and injured two others before being shot

:02:58.:03:03.

dead on France's most famous street. The policeman he killed was

:03:04.:03:08.

identified today, and dead for doing his duty, the interior minister

:03:09.:03:14.

said. The group calling itself Islamic state has claimed

:03:15.:03:16.

police. Officers today searched his family house east of Paris, three of

:03:27.:03:30.

those living there are now being questioned. Neighbours told us they

:03:31.:03:35.

did not see the family very often, one man said he read about the

:03:36.:03:40.

attack in this morning's paper and discovered that karim Cheurfi had

:03:41.:03:45.

been living on his state. Melo today another house and neighbourhood

:03:46.:03:50.

rebranded as part of the story of France's terrorist attacks. But

:03:51.:03:54.

thousands of people from ordinary areas listed as potential threats,

:03:55.:03:58.

security services here are stretched to breaking point. This election was

:03:59.:04:04.

always seen as a target for terrorism, 50,000 security forces

:04:05.:04:06.

have been brought into security vote. The leading candidates have

:04:07.:04:11.

promised thousands more police posts if they are elected, and when it

:04:12.:04:15.

comes to being tough on terrorism, it is sometimes hard to tell them

:04:16.:04:22.

apart. Tries Melo we want to take back control of our borders.

:04:23.:04:26.

TRANSLATION: I will raise the level of protection on our borders by

:04:27.:04:32.

renegotiating the treaty. TRANSLATION: Preachers of hatred

:04:33.:04:36.

must be expelled and Islamist mosques closed. TRANSLATION: Note a

:04:37.:04:42.

man in any mosque will be able to preach against the values of the

:04:43.:04:47.

Republic. The liberal newcomer said their duty was the key. TRANSLATION:

:04:48.:04:54.

At heart it is our democracy that is being targeted, our unity. I say

:04:55.:04:59.

don't give in to fear, or division or intimidation. France's locked in

:05:00.:05:04.

a debate about how to stop attacks like this, even harder perhaps to

:05:05.:05:08.

stop them influencing its democratic transition of power. Our

:05:09.:05:16.

correspondence in Paris, Christian Fraser spoke to a counsellor for

:05:17.:05:23.

Left Front, one of the millions of people are likely to vote for no one

:05:24.:05:30.

in Sunday's election. Melo my natural candidate would be John Luke

:05:31.:05:35.

Melling John, because he is from the same political side. I have too many

:05:36.:05:42.

disagreements with him. For example on immigration. I think that

:05:43.:05:48.

today... Goes back years to tough? Yes. I am for the free

:05:49.:05:58.

installation... I am not for his controls on frontiers. I think that

:05:59.:06:04.

happens today in the integration of happens today in the integration of

:06:05.:06:09.

people from Africa, North Africa... Goes like you would have an open

:06:10.:06:14.

door policy? Maybe you were collared open door, but you cannot prevent

:06:15.:06:17.

people from emigrating. It is impossible. The obstacles that are

:06:18.:06:23.

put in a way might be counter-productive? I think we have

:06:24.:06:29.

about everybody, not just give papers to people that work, but to

:06:30.:06:37.

everybody. Joining me now is the Anglo-French journalist and

:06:38.:06:44.

broadcaster. Badge driven coming in. How are those Poles looking? Very

:06:45.:06:51.

tight. All polling and campaigning stops tonight. So that the French

:06:52.:06:58.

people can have time to reflect, read up and to think about their

:06:59.:07:03.

vote. Uppermost in their minds will be security issues and the future of

:07:04.:07:08.

France. The polls, the four leading candidates is that of the two front

:07:09.:07:14.

ones, are Emmanuel Macron, Marine Le Pen, you have Francois Fillon, and

:07:15.:07:20.

then you have surprised a Jean-Luc Melenchon, but it seems to be

:07:21.:07:24.

tightening as we had the first three I mentioned within about 4% of each

:07:25.:07:29.

other. It is the most unpredictable and wide open presidential election

:07:30.:07:38.

in modern history. Many people voted for and none of the above. Why?

:07:39.:07:45.

We'll see what the French people decide, that is what the pollsters

:07:46.:07:50.

think, and there are people who says they will abstain will do what they

:07:51.:07:55.

call in French... I think a lot of people who are disillusioned in

:07:56.:08:01.

France and indeed in other countries with politicians, the political

:08:02.:08:07.

class, and that is why a candidate like Emmanuel Macron is saying it is

:08:08.:08:11.

no longer do think of right and left, we need some of the policies

:08:12.:08:16.

on one side and some of the other, he were to become President at 39

:08:17.:08:20.

years old it would be remarkable. Other people are saying that the

:08:21.:08:26.

latest shooting in Paris and killing of a police officer, serious

:08:27.:08:31.

wounding two others and of a German tourist are really going to play to

:08:32.:08:37.

the fears of some people, to use the Marine Le Pen senators plan to close

:08:38.:08:42.

the Borders, stop immigration, not just illegal in the but chuck out

:08:43.:08:49.

anybody who is suspected by intelligence services are is

:08:50.:08:52.

foreign. We were ultimately see who goes through to the two candidates,

:08:53.:08:56.

who get the most votes, we don't think anyone will get 50%, so who

:08:57.:09:00.

are the two people who are going to go forward and you then will be

:09:01.:09:06.

within a very short breadth of the palace itself on the 7th of May.

:09:07.:09:16.

What about turnout? What are you expecting? You say people are

:09:17.:09:20.

disillusioned, do you expect...? And that is also an unknown. How correct

:09:21.:09:25.

at the polls? Who will go thrower but how many people abstain? It was

:09:26.:09:30.

33% a few weeks ago, it looks like people have been making their minds

:09:31.:09:35.

up in the last week. We think it might be 23% abstention, but it is a

:09:36.:09:43.

very important election not just for France but for the United Kingdom,

:09:44.:09:48.

it will have an effect on the rest of the EU. It is crucial for France

:09:49.:09:54.

and we will see who versus who I will find that out on 7pm London

:09:55.:10:02.

time this Sunday. Police in Germany have arrested a man accused of

:10:03.:10:06.

bombing the boss of the German football team Dortmund last week.

:10:07.:10:09.

One player was injured on the bus was on its way to the stadium. The

:10:10.:10:15.

suspect may have been carrying out a complex financial scam. The bombing

:10:16.:10:23.

was potentially deadly, shattering the windows of the coach, it was

:10:24.:10:27.

only a matter of luck that no one was killed. Police initially thought

:10:28.:10:33.

the attack on the team bus was an act of politically motivated terror,

:10:34.:10:38.

but now prosecutors say the attacker was driven by greed, not ideology. A

:10:39.:10:43.

28-year-old man who stayed in the same hotel as the players is accused

:10:44.:10:46.

of bombing the team in order to force the club's share price down,

:10:47.:10:53.

prosecutors say his aim was to make a huge profit on the stock market.

:10:54.:11:01.

TRANSLATION: Retraced the accused by noticeable option dealings, we now

:11:02.:11:06.

know that the accused but the different derivatives of the

:11:07.:11:09.

Dortmund stock. With all these directors he speculated on falling

:11:10.:11:13.

stock prices, but the main part of these finance products himself on

:11:14.:11:19.

April 11, so the day of the attack. The team has expressed relief that

:11:20.:11:23.

the perpetrator appears to have been caught, but there is also widespread

:11:24.:11:28.

disgust in Germany that summer may have been prepared to kill in order

:11:29.:11:35.

to make money from shares. The team is looking for to the next match on

:11:36.:11:39.

Sunday but some players have not yet fully recovered. TRANSLATION: Is a

:11:40.:11:49.

success would give us a boost, I can speak for myself. I think that I am

:11:50.:11:53.

able and at the moment I don't see why I personally cannot, with all

:11:54.:11:59.

the emotion involved cannot coach this game. The bombing shocked

:12:00.:12:03.

Germany, particularly because it was not clear who the attack and why.

:12:04.:12:09.

Officials remain cautious, saying in the perpetrators could be Islamist

:12:10.:12:15.

extremists or criminals with a completely different motivation. Now

:12:16.:12:16.

it seems that caution has paid off. US military officials say a close

:12:17.:12:27.

associate of the group that calls itself Islamic state.

:12:28.:12:28.

US military officials say a close associate of the leader of the group

:12:29.:12:32.

which calls itself Islamic State, has been killed in a commando raid

:12:33.:12:34.

Abdurakhmon Uzbeki was reportedly killed during the ground assault

:12:35.:12:37.

Our correspondent in Washington, Gary O'Donoghue, has more details.

:12:38.:12:42.

The attack took place on the 6th of April. I think the reason foreign

:12:43.:12:56.

the gap is that they try to gather as much intelligence as they could

:12:57.:13:00.

in order to get the man they thought they had got. That was probably the

:13:01.:13:05.

reason for the delay. It was a ground operation, in other words the

:13:06.:13:09.

US spent a lot of time hitting people in Syria and Iraq,

:13:10.:13:12.

individuals through drone strikes and hellfire missiles fired from

:13:13.:13:17.

drones, much more rare is using commandos on the ground.

:13:18.:13:20.

As hacking becomes a bigger and bigger problem ,

:13:21.:13:24.

signs emerge of how young the hackers are.

:13:25.:13:26.

The bodies of the dead still inside. I never thought they would go

:13:27.:13:55.

through with it. Some places have already had nearly

:13:56.:14:11.

as much rain as they normally expect in an entire year. For millions of

:14:12.:14:17.

Americans, the death of Richard Nixon has meant conflicting

:14:18.:14:22.

emotions, a national day of mourning next Wednesday, sitting somehow

:14:23.:14:26.

uneasily with the abiding memories of the shame of Watergate. Liftoff

:14:27.:14:33.

of the spaceship discovery with the Hubble space telescope, our window

:14:34.:14:34.

on the universe. The man who shot dead a policeman

:14:35.:14:51.

in Paris on Thursday , Karim Sure-fee , had

:14:52.:14:58.

four previous convictions. The Chancellor and Prime Minister

:14:59.:15:17.

given a first hints on what will be the Conservative manifesto. Theresa

:15:18.:15:20.

May says she would keep the current spending on foreign aid despite

:15:21.:15:24.

pressure within our own party to cut it. The Chancellor has hinted that

:15:25.:15:29.

he would like to end the party's promise not to increase taxes. I

:15:30.:15:40.

Deputy political editor reports. No leader stays popular forever, but

:15:41.:15:44.

Reza made feels she's liked enough for now to make policy some might

:15:45.:15:47.

like and others won't. She was confident enough, have promised when

:15:48.:15:53.

we heard before and will again. Melo my passion in politics is to make

:15:54.:15:57.

the United Kingdom a country that works for everyone and not just the

:15:58.:16:01.

privileged few. That today that meant sticking to Britain's target

:16:02.:16:06.

for spending on foreign aid, which some right-wingers want cut. We need

:16:07.:16:10.

is look at how that money is spent and make sure we are able to spend

:16:11.:16:13.

that money in the most effective way. But what about that

:16:14.:16:16.

costly pledge? Keeping up the value costly pledge? Keeping up the value

:16:17.:16:21.

of pensions? Again today, you are telling the country that you are a

:16:22.:16:26.

leader that people can trust. Can pensioners trust you to go on

:16:27.:16:31.

raising the state pension year by year, just as your party and

:16:32.:16:36.

Government is now? What I would say to pensioners is just look at what

:16:37.:16:42.

the Conservatives in Government have done. P yesterday, ?1250 a year

:16:43.:16:46.

better off as a result of action taken. We were clear about the need

:16:47.:16:50.

to ensure that we support people in their old age and that is what we

:16:51.:16:54.

have done. That wasn't a yes. Here and that is what we have done. That

:16:55.:16:57.

wasn't a yes. Here in Baxter, plenty of people like the idea of looking

:16:58.:17:01.

after pensioners. They have worked all their lives, paid their national

:17:02.:17:07.

insurance. I think they deserve it as much as anyone else. If if you

:17:08.:17:12.

can't look after the elderly, what can you do? If it can be done, stop

:17:13.:17:17.

it. A lot of them put it in the bank. Trees may may be about to

:17:18.:17:21.

upset a lot of voters, even thinking about dropping the Tories promised

:17:22.:17:28.

to pensioners takes a leader very confident about the election,

:17:29.:17:32.

especially now she is protecting overseas aid spending. A big lead in

:17:33.:17:35.

the polls comes in handy if you about to annoy millions of

:17:36.:17:39.

pensioners. A big majority in the Commons, even more so she then on

:17:40.:17:47.

and doesn't. That deserves a hug, Jeremy Corbyn parred campaigning his

:17:48.:17:52.

way to small crowds and big ones. No talk of saving on benefits here, the

:17:53.:17:56.

carbon wayside like this. Theresa May seems incapable of answering any

:17:57.:18:01.

questions about the protection of the triple lock. I give you that

:18:02.:18:07.

commitment now, Labour will maintain the triple lock. Standing by what is

:18:08.:18:13.

called the triple lock, painted up every year by inflation or average

:18:14.:18:18.

earnings or 2.5%. And not sure where I'm going. Nor is anyone for sure,

:18:19.:18:25.

the campaign has barely started. The Lib Dems look perky, they are sure

:18:26.:18:29.

this election will be better than last time. And we are the only clear

:18:30.:18:33.

opposition to the Conservatives, opposing a hard Brexit, it and being

:18:34.:18:38.

a clear and effective opposition on every other level. And on they go.

:18:39.:18:43.

Pollsters and pundits may think they know how this ends, but there are

:18:44.:18:44.

still 48 days to polling day. The internet is creating a new kind

:18:45.:18:51.

of criminal according to a new report from the UK's

:18:52.:18:54.

National Crime Agency and that criminal is younger and far more

:18:55.:18:57.

tech-saavy than many of the others law enforcement are

:18:58.:19:00.

used to encountering. The agency says an increasing number

:19:01.:19:01.

of young people are slipping Doctor Merry 18 is a cyber

:19:02.:19:18.

psychologist who has done extensive research on the pathways young

:19:19.:19:27.

people take to cybercrime. What sort of person is attracted to the world

:19:28.:19:36.

of hacking? We published a report last year where we found that the

:19:37.:19:41.

typical profile of the youth hacker was male, highly intelligent,

:19:42.:19:47.

clearly had an avid interest and skills said regarding technology.

:19:48.:19:53.

Had some need for affiliation and affirmation, so to a group, and also

:19:54.:20:00.

enjoyed the challenges involved in tracking behaviour. How do they take

:20:01.:20:06.

that first step onto that pathway to crime? It's a good question. We know

:20:07.:20:11.

a lot about real-world criminality, we know very little about cyber

:20:12.:20:20.

criminality. Where the pathway from into cyber juvenile delivers the

:20:21.:20:27.

bank potentially into organised cybercrime will stop we do need more

:20:28.:20:32.

research in this area. There is no point and actually considering

:20:33.:20:38.

hacking when a young person is 15, they don't just wake up and become a

:20:39.:20:45.

hacker we have to go back in a developmental context and start

:20:46.:20:48.

thinking about identifying these kids very early, and I'm talking

:20:49.:20:56.

about school entry age. We have IQ metrics and CQ metrics, but we have

:20:57.:21:03.

no CQ, we have no technology quarter, everywhere in the identify

:21:04.:21:06.

these kids we would be able to engage with them, nurture them,

:21:07.:21:10.

during the educational process and stop them going outside the system

:21:11.:21:15.

to seek affirmation. That also is very technical. How easy is it to

:21:16.:21:23.

achieve? It is to design a scale, and that's a major piece of work for

:21:24.:21:29.

behavioural scientists, but it is not such a big thing to do for them,

:21:30.:21:33.

a scale would be an assessment that you give to young children and you

:21:34.:21:39.

would aim to identify latent talent of talent that would manifest over

:21:40.:21:47.

time. At that point, you could then hot house them and get them to

:21:48.:21:49.

engage in parts of the curriculum where they could build their

:21:50.:21:54.

self-esteem within the educational system rather than engaging in

:21:55.:22:02.

potentially criminal behaviour. That is a way of staging an educational

:22:03.:22:07.

intervention. In addition to that, we also need to stage interventions

:22:08.:22:13.

in terms of the actual behaviour. It would be very difficult for any

:22:14.:22:18.

parent of a tech talented 13-year-old to explain to them,

:22:19.:22:22.

well, if you are engaging in this behaviour online and you are at the

:22:23.:22:26.

perimeter of the network, that is OK, but if you do this in terms of

:22:27.:22:30.

penetrating the network then that is criminal. It would be difficult for

:22:31.:22:34.

a teacher to teach that to a young person. What we need is extensive

:22:35.:22:40.

education. Sorry to interrupt, running out of time. Teenagers and

:22:41.:22:49.

consequences. Thank you very much. Hugh Ferris has these bought for us.

:22:50.:22:52.

They've met in two of the last three finals...

:22:53.:22:54.

There'll be a Madrid derby in the SEMI-finals

:22:55.:22:57.

Real have been drawn against Atletico in the last four...

:22:58.:23:01.

where surprise package Monaco will take on Juventus in the other match.

:23:02.:23:12.

It is friends reunited because it is the fourth year in a row they will

:23:13.:23:17.

meet any cabbage leaf. Past three seasons we have two finals,

:23:18.:23:21.

1/4-final, and on every one of those occasions rearm and it has come out

:23:22.:23:27.

as the winner of those ties. It will be looking for revenge, this season

:23:28.:23:31.

in La Liga, Ray R Madrid had a 3-1 win and they met only a couple of

:23:32.:23:39.

weeks ago, another Madrid derby that finished 1-1. It will be close and

:23:40.:23:43.

tight and tense. It means they won't meet in the final, got into the last

:23:44.:23:48.

three seasons they have met any final, this tiny meet semifinal.

:23:49.:23:52.

Ajax will play Lyon in the semi finals while Manchester United

:23:53.:23:56.

will face Celta Vigo in the other tie.

:23:57.:23:58.

There's been another shock at the Monte Carlo Master tennis,

:23:59.:24:00.
