There are reports of a shooting incident inside New York. A man

dressed as a doctor opened fire at the Bronx Lebanon on hospital. The

Council leader responsible for Grenfell Tower in London where 80

:00:27.:00:32.

people died in a fire has resigned. Nicholas Paget-Brown's Council was

criticised for its response. Germany legalises same-sex unions -

:00:51.:00:53.

to World News Today. We start the programme with some

:00:54.:01:12.

breaking news coming in from the States. Reports of a shooting

:01:13.:01:17.

incident inside a hospital inside the Bronx in New York. Unarmed man,

:01:18.:01:22.

said to be dressed as a doctor, opened fire at the Bronx Lebanon on

:01:23.:01:27.

hospital, according to reports. This hit is a 972 bed hospital, at least

:01:28.:01:32.

three people are believed to have been shot, although there are

:01:33.:01:37.

reports of multiple shootings and some reports describe this as an

:01:38.:01:42.

ongoing situation. Messages on social media speaking of doctors and

:01:43.:01:45.

nurses having barricaded themselves inside the building and also some

:01:46.:01:51.

reports of a fire in the building. None of this is 100% confirmed. New

:01:52.:01:57.

York Forrest has been briefed on the situation and police are going

:01:58.:02:02.

through from each floor to each floor in search of the gunmen. We

:02:03.:02:08.

will keep you updated on this developing story.

:02:09.:02:11.

The leader of Kensington and Chelsea Council,

:02:12.:02:15.

the borough where the Grenfell Tower fire happened, has resigned.

:02:16.:02:17.

Nicholas Paget-Brown said he had to accept responsibility

:02:18.:02:21.

for his role in response to the fire and in particular for the decision

:02:22.:02:24.

to ban the public and press from a council meeting last night.

:02:25.:02:27.

The BBC has also obtained documents that show that cheaper,

:02:28.:02:32.

less fire-resistant cladding was chosen for the tower block.

:02:33.:02:35.

80 people are believed to have died in the fire and there is no

:02:36.:02:39.

suggestion a deliberate decision was made to cut fire safety.

:02:40.:02:42.

Kensington Chelsea Council says safety would not have been

:02:43.:02:44.

compromised in order to manage budgets.

:02:45.:02:47.

Our home affairs correspondent Tom Symonds has more.

:02:48.:02:51.

Were you pressured by Number 10 to resign?

:02:52.:02:55.

The leader of the council criticised for failing to cope

:02:56.:03:01.

with the crisis in his backyard, could not hold on.

:03:02.:03:04.

CHANTING: We want justice, we want justice!

:03:05.:03:07.

Last week his council offices were invaded.

:03:08.:03:11.

Last night he couldn't even hold a council meeting.

:03:12.:03:14.

In particular my decision to accept legal advice that I should not

:03:15.:03:21.

compromise the public inquiry by having an open discussion

:03:22.:03:23.

in public yesterday has itself become a political story,

:03:24.:03:28.

and it cannot be right that this should have become the focus

:03:29.:03:30.

of attention when so many are dead or still unaccounted for.

:03:31.:03:35.

Investigations by the BBC and the Times newspaper

:03:36.:03:41.

into the decisions made when the council refurbished

:03:42.:03:44.

Grenfell Tower added to the pressure.

:03:45.:03:46.

The big change - the addition of aluminium cladding panels

:03:47.:03:49.

We've been investigating that refurbishment and whether it played

:03:50.:03:56.

a part in the tragedy that was to follow.

:03:57.:03:59.

This development in North London includes cladding made not

:04:00.:04:02.

from aluminium, but zinc. Documents passed to the BBC revealed

:04:03.:04:05.

that the zinc panels were originally proposed for Grenfell.

:04:06.:04:09.

In 2012 the architects' designs show this clearly -

:04:10.:04:13.

residents were told it would be zinc.

:04:14.:04:15.

But there was pressure from the council on contractors

:04:16.:04:18.

By 2015 they were given amendments to the original tender and told

:04:19.:04:24.

to fit aluminium composite panel, which is cheaper.

:04:25.:04:28.

So did the change make a difference to fire safety?

:04:29.:04:35.

Well, this panel is similar to the ones eventually used.

:04:36.:04:39.

It's an aluminium sandwich with a plastic filling

:04:40.:04:43.

which is not fire resistant. The original zinc panels

:04:44.:04:46.

were marketed as capable of being able to resist fire.

:04:47.:04:49.

Both panels have the same safety rating under European tests.

:04:50.:04:53.

So on current evidence, it's not clear the change

:04:54.:04:56.

However, even the fact there was pressure to cut costs has

:04:57.:05:04.

infuriated those affected by the fire.

:05:05.:05:08.

Those affected and the wider community are utterly sick of this

:05:09.:05:12.

lack of value ascribed to human beings who pay their council tax,

:05:13.:05:19.

Meanwhile, cladding from 149 tower blocks has now

:05:20.:05:25.

The whole process has been criticised as pointless because only

:05:26.:05:31.

the cladding is being tested, and not for example

:05:32.:05:33.

Pointless? No, says the testing body.

:05:34.:05:41.

It is critical to do these screening tests,

:05:42.:05:44.

just to see whether there is a risk or not, to see whether the buildings

:05:45.:05:48.

Many of them do, and the question now is what can we do about it,

:05:49.:05:55.

and are there other risks or materials we need to consider?

:05:56.:05:59.

There is an immediate crisis to deal with,

:06:00.:06:02.

an ongoing police investigation, a public inquiry, again today

:06:03.:06:05.

described as too narrow. Grenfell Tower casts a long shadow.

:06:06.:06:14.

We will return to New York, the breaking news that there has been a

:06:15.:06:20.

shooting at a hospital in the Bronx borough of New York. We have a tweet

:06:21.:06:27.

from the Police Commissioner of New York, according to the Reuters news

:06:28.:06:30.

agency, saying the suspect who opened fire at the hospital is dead.

:06:31.:06:36.

Just to repeat, this developing situation, the breaking news we

:06:37.:06:40.

started the programme with, the suspect who opened fire at the Bronx

:06:41.:06:44.

Lebanon hospital in New York is dead. That's according to a tweet

:06:45.:06:48.

from the Police Commissioner and that is being reported at the moment

:06:49.:06:53.

on the Reuters news agency. We believe at least three people have

:06:54.:06:57.

been injured but of course, this is a developing situation and we will

:06:58.:07:00.

bring you more details the moment we get confirmation of them. Let's turn

:07:01.:07:03.

to Germany. Germany has legalised same-sex

:07:04.:07:06.

marriage, a move that brings it in line with most other

:07:07.:07:08.

European countries. Members of Parliament

:07:09.:07:11.

voted in favour - after the German Chancellor Angela Merkel

:07:12.:07:13.

changed her position to allow a free vote on gay marriage -

:07:14.:07:17.

though she herself, voted against it.

:07:18.:07:20.

success story too. Social media timelines are full

:09:24.:09:26.

of rainbow colours today as Twitter users celebrate Germany's decision

:09:27.:09:33.

to legalise same-sex marriage. The hashtag "marriage for all" began

:09:34.:09:40.

trending worldwide within hours of the announcement,

:09:41.:09:43.

generating more than 50,000 tweets. One Twitter user posted - "Germany

:09:44.:09:48.

legalized same sex marriage. I am proud of Germany

:09:49.:09:51.

for the first time." Another posted - "I might be crying

:09:59.:10:18.

President Trump's ban on certain people travelling to certain

:10:19.:10:23.

countries came into effect. Critics say it is unconstitutional and

:10:24.:10:24.

racist. This was the response when President

:10:25.:10:34.

Trump first imposed his travel ban, the court struck it down. But now it

:10:35.:10:38.

has been partially provide timely response looks like this. The travel

:10:39.:10:43.

ban is more limited and the protests are smaller. But this is an issue on

:10:44.:10:49.

which America feels deeply. We are in a political climate where Muslims

:10:50.:10:54.

are being targeted by bigoted and is discriminatory laws. If nothing

:10:55.:11:00.

else, it will make a psychological difference, now that we are actually

:11:01.:11:03.

going to do something to prevent terrorists. Most Muslims feel this

:11:04.:11:11.

isn't the best way to promote peace and to stop terrorism, which we all

:11:12.:11:16.

want to do. For the next 90 days, non-US visa holders from six

:11:17.:11:20.

predominantly Muslim countries will be denied entry to the United

:11:21.:11:23.

States. But there are some exceptions. Those with close family

:11:24.:11:28.

members already in America may be admitted but not grandparents or

:11:29.:11:32.

more extended family. Those with US college places or jobs can be

:11:33.:11:36.

admitted as well but the administration is struggling to

:11:37.:11:39.

explain how exactly these rules make America safer. This has been one of

:11:40.:11:46.

the President's top issues. He has talked consistently about how he

:11:47.:11:49.

believes the United States needs to do more to enhance our screening

:11:50.:11:54.

procedures and to take a better look at people who will be coming into

:11:55.:11:58.

the United States. Lawyers are talking to new arrivals at airports

:11:59.:12:01.

around the country to monitor the new arrangements. It will include

:12:02.:12:06.

120 day ban on most refugees from anywhere. We tried to gather

:12:07.:12:10.

information so we can note for future travellers, what to be on the

:12:11.:12:17.

lookout for. If we need to file lawsuits or petitions, we also on

:12:18.:12:22.

hand to do so. The Supreme Court will decide decide on this ban in

:12:23.:12:26.

October and some of the restrictions will by then already have expired.

:12:27.:12:32.

Let's speak to the former President of the American immigration lawyers

association, joining us live from Ohio. Even as this ban was finally

:12:38.:12:44.

coming into effect, we had a clarification on the bona fides

:12:45.:12:48.

family members, fiancees were now in this kind of ran. This is a bit of a

:12:49.:12:53.

minefield. Who are these relatives that will be allowed through? The

:12:54.:13:00.

Supreme Court was pretty clear, the Supreme Court says somebody needs to

:13:01.:13:03.

show a bona fides famille yelp relationship. Or a bona fides

:13:04.:13:10.

relationship with an employer. The Trump administration took it on

:13:11.:13:13.

themselves to arbitrarily narrow that definition. As you mentioned

:13:14.:13:20.

earlier, the left out grandparents and they originally left out

:13:21.:13:24.

fiancees. It just goes back to this whole thing. We have never had a

:13:25.:13:28.

President in this country that has tried to ban an entire religion. The

:13:29.:13:33.

lower courts have waded in and said no. The Supreme Court earlier

:13:34.:13:47.

basically said no. They left the core of this travel ban in place the

:13:48.:13:50.

Donald Trump really was the big loser this week in terms of his

:13:51.:13:55.

travel ban. Even though he has got it through, partially, he has got

:13:56.:13:59.

roughly what he wanted, you still think he is the loser in this? Yes,

:14:00.:14:04.

because he didn't get what he wanted, which was to ban all people

:14:05.:14:10.

from six predominantly Muslim countries, all people, including

:14:11.:14:12.

people that have lived and worked tier for years, anyone from these

:14:13.:14:17.

countries. The court said, you can't do this because we know you want to

:14:18.:14:21.

do this based on your hatred of Muslims. Look at what you said

:14:22.:14:25.

during the campaign. The Supreme Court looked at this and said, to

:14:26.:14:36.

have a connection to United States, we can put a temporary pause on

:14:37.:14:40.

that. The rest of Donald Trump's plan is still on hold. That's why I

:14:41.:14:52.

say this was a big loss for him. Would you suggest as some critics

:14:53.:14:55.

say, this is based on racism? Of course it is. It is based on

:14:56.:15:03.

anti-Muslim rhetoric that we heard coming out of this President's mouth

:15:04.:15:06.

for the last two years. One thing that happened in the US courts,

:15:07.:15:10.

Donald Trump as everybody knows, loves to tweet and he will say

:15:11.:15:13.

anything he wants and then denied that he said it and you can save the

:15:14.:15:20.

sky is blue and then say it was raining and he will say, I only said

:15:21.:15:24.

it was raining. But when you go to a US court, as in the UK, you go into

:15:25.:15:29.

a court, you are responsible for your words and the courts held him

:15:30.:15:34.

to his words and they were, he wanted to ban Muslims. He said it

:15:35.:15:40.

over and over again. Then he said, even whether his assistants were

:15:41.:15:45.

saying, this is in a band pause. Donald Trump then tweets, this is a

:15:46.:15:52.

ban. The courts have held him to his word and I think this is really

:15:53.:15:56.

where he is going to have to take some responsibility. We will have to

:15:57.:16:01.

leave it there. David Leopold. Thank you. We will stay with Donald Trump.

:16:02.:16:10.

Staying in the US, and two TV presenters attacked on Twitter

:16:11.:16:13.

by President Donald Trump have accused him of lying

:16:14.:16:15.

and suggested the White House tried to blackmail them.

:16:16.:16:18.

Mika Brezinski and Joe Scarborough, the hosts of MSNBC Morning Joe said

:16:19.:16:21.

they were warned a tabloid would run a negative story on them

:16:22.:16:24.

unless they said sorry for their coverage of Mr Trump.

:16:25.:16:30.

Let's take a look at some of the other stories making the news.

:16:31.:16:33.

Around 60 migrants are feared drowned after their boat sank

:16:34.:16:36.

Around 80 survivors were brought to the Italian port of Brindisi,

one unconfirmed report says the government is a former doctor at the

been killed. After weeks of criticism and a stormy Council

meeting last night, the leader of Kensington and Chelsea Council

:19:17.:19:19.

finally steps down in the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire. 80 people

are believed to have died in it. Let's get all the sports news with

years with teen Sky on the eve of the Tour de France. The 104th tour

gets underway in Dusseldorf in Germany on Saturday and Chris Froome

:20:41.:20:43.

is hoping to get his third straight victory and fourth victory in five

:20:44.:20:47.

years. He faces stiff competition from some of the world's leading

:20:48.:20:53.

cyclists. I think this is the biggest challenge I have faced in my

:20:54.:20:57.

career. The level of my rivals and of course we racing on, means it

:20:58.:21:03.

will be a much more open race. It will be the biggest challenge for

:21:04.:21:07.

me, for sure. It will be right up there. To win a fourth Tour de

:21:08.:21:10.

France title would be incredible, it would be unreal. I don't want to

:21:11.:21:22.

jinx it but it would just be unreal. UK anti-doping authorities still

investigating investigations of wrongdoing against Team Sky and

British Cycling for 2012 which both deny. UCI President Brian Cookson

:21:30.:21:33.

says cycling has made significant progress in the battles against

:21:34.:21:38.

doping while he has been in charge. Reputational problems that have been

:21:39.:21:42.

around that team in the last few months have not been helpful. I want

:21:43.:21:48.

to wait, like everyone else, for the outcome of UK anti-doping enquiries

:21:49.:21:52.

and I don't think it is right I should say more than that. Team Sky

:21:53.:21:56.

are no different from any other team. It is not helpful it has taken

:21:57.:22:08.

so long to resolve satisfactory. Coach Andy Farrell says the British

and Irish lions need to man up if they are to win the second test in

:22:13.:22:15.

Wellington and remain in the series with New Zealand. The Lions have

made three changes. Owen Farrell moves to inside centre. Sam

:22:27.:22:30.

Warburton returns as in side flanker. The tourists have to win

:22:31.:22:36.

this. It is about character this week for us. It is about manning up.

:22:37.:22:47.

Ake had a spell on loan with Eddie Howe's season last season and the

now. The respected French politician

:23:36.:23:42.

and Auschwitz survivor who wrote France's abortion laws,

:23:43.:23:45.

has died at the age of 89. Simone Weil was best known

:23:46.:23:47.

for her instrumental role in legalising abortion in the 1970s,

:23:48.:23:50.

and went on to serve as the first President of an elected

:23:51.:23:54.

European Parliament. Her death was confirmed

:23:55.:23:59.

by President Macron, who called her life

:24:00.:24:04.

"an exemplary inspiration". TRANSLATION: Makes me think about

:24:05.:24:13.

the abortion loss. I can't remember which year but it was a really great

:24:14.:24:18.

step forward. We have lost a very special lady. I benefited from her

:24:19.:24:22.

abortion legislation and at the time, that was extraordinary. She

:24:23.:24:26.

was one of the first push for independent women to get involved in

:24:27.:24:30.

politics, despite having suffered enormously but without ever

:24:31.:24:31.

complaining. Earlier I spoke to the Economist

bureau chief Sophie Pedder in Paris, about Simone Weil's legacy and how

:24:34.:24:36.

she was a woman ahead of her time. When you look at what she was

:24:37.:24:47.

campaigning for in the 1970s, as health minister, she argued in

:24:48.:24:51.

Parliament for the legalisation of abortion. She was really taking on a

:24:52.:24:55.

very Conservative, male establishment and when you look at

:24:56.:24:59.

her giving a speech in the National Assembly in the French Parliament,

:25:00.:25:03.

she was a woman in front of her own male audience, only nine female

:25:04.:25:07.

deputies at the time, she really wanted to bring France I think, in

:25:08.:25:12.

the modern era and make it a more socially liberal society. It came

:25:13.:25:17.

after the 1968 student uprising when there was a reaction against a much

:25:18.:25:20.

more Conservative culture. She wanted to modernise France in a way

:25:21.:25:30.

that was ahead of her time. Let's go back to our developing story, that

:25:31.:25:34.

breaking story from New York. The New York Police Commissioner says

:25:35.:25:38.

that the gunmen who opened fire at a hospital in the city is now dead.

:25:39.:25:43.

Local media reported that at least three people had been wounded in

:25:44.:25:46.

this attack at the Bronx Lebanon hospital. Reports say the suspect

:25:47.:25:52.

was a current or former employee. A police spokesperson did not specify

how many people had been hurt in this incident. The hospital is north

:26:04.:26:15.

States or indeed Canada, if you are heading west, you will be greeted

:26:16.:26:18.

with a lot of fine and dry and sunny weather. If heading east,

:26:19.:26:23.

potentially you will be greeted with some thunderstorms and potential

:26:24.:26:26.

rain. Looking at the satellite picture in the last 24 hours, we can

:26:27.:26:31.

see how dry it has been across the west. Heavy rain and thunderstorms

:26:32.:26:34.

have been affecting central and eastern parts of the States and also

:26:35.:26:40.

eastern Canada. For the week in, not looking very different. Humid air

:26:41.:26:44.

from the Gulf of Mexico feeding the thunderstorms. Warm and humid and

:26:45.:26:48.

storms could be pretty violent for Texas, all the way up the eastern

:26:49.:26:54.

Canada. South Asia, some heavy rain. South-west monsoon in full swing and

:26:55.:26:58.

it is pretty much where it should be for the time of year. The north west

:26:59.:27:02.

corner, we have seen some heavy rain in the last couple of days. Could be

:27:03.:27:10.

looking at another four to five millimetres of rain doing the course

:27:11.:27:13.

of the weekend. Likely to be more flooding in places. Europe, we have

:27:14.:27:19.

seen huge contrast in temperature and weather conditions. Central and

:27:20.:27:22.

northern parts have been bombarded with strong winds, heavy rain and

:27:23.:27:28.

thunderstorms. North east Germany has seen torrential downpours to end

:27:29.:27:31.

the working week. These thunderstorms will be moving north

:27:32.:27:36.

and east words into western Russia and the Baltic states. Further

south, it is all about the heatwave, particularly across the south east

:27:41.:27:46.

corner. In the Canary Isles, a lot of fine weather, temperatures around

:27:47.:27:53.

28, 30 degrees on Saturday. The Iberian peninsula sees lower

:27:54.:27:55.

temperatures than normal for this time of year. Even a few showers

:27:56.:28:03.

across south eastern Spain. In France, remains quite unsettled but

:28:04.:28:07.

some sunshine and quite pleasant in Nice. A bit cooler of late for

:28:08.:28:16.

Italy. This intense heatwave is producing temperatures over 40

:28:17.:28:19.

degrees and it will persist during the week. It is the start of next

You can see the high pressure nudging in from the south west. In
