of damage.

0:00:010:00:02

This is BBC World News. The latest

headlines.

0:00:150:00:17

The Zimbabwean President Robert

Mugabe has defied his party's

0:00:170:00:22

demands to step down, in an address

to the nation. Mr Mugabe now faces

0:00:220:00:27

impeachment by Zanu-PF, which

earlier removed him as party leader.

0:00:270:00:34

Some of the stories making the news

from around the world. Argentina has

0:00:340:00:40

detected signals which may be from

the submarine that went missing with

0:00:400:00:44

44 crew on board. The San Juan last

made contact on Wednesday and

0:00:440:00:48

experts or looking to trace the

origins of the transmissions.

0:00:480:00:51

Talks aimed at forming

an unprecedented coalition

0:00:510:00:52

in Germany have been extended

beyond a second deadline.

0:00:520:00:55

The party of Chancellor Angela

Merkel is trying to form an alliance

0:00:550:00:57

with the Greens and the Free

Democrats.

0:00:570:01:02

Carbon emissions and refugee numbers

are the main sticking points.

0:01:020:01:05

15 people have been killed

in a stampede which broke out

0:01:050:01:07

while food aid was being handed

out in Morocco.

0:01:070:01:10

Five people were injured

when the incident happened

0:01:100:01:12

in the southwestern town,

Sidi Boulaalam.

0:01:120:01:15

The Moroccan King is offering

help to the victims'

0:01:150:01:17

families, and ordered

a criminal investigation.

0:01:170:01:20

Chileans are voting

for a new President to replace

0:01:200:01:25

Michelle Bachelet, who is barred

from seeking an immediate

0:01:250:01:27

re-election under the constitution.

0:01:270:01:28

Eight candidates are contesting

the first round of voting,

0:01:280:01:30

with a run-off likely to be needed

in December to decide

0:01:300:01:33

the eventual winner.

0:01:330:01:38

More than 30,000

runners have taken part

0:01:380:01:40

in Delhi's half marathon,

despite calls by doctors to postpone

0:01:400:01:42

it on health grounds.

0:01:430:01:44

Air pollution was measured at eight

times above safe levels.

0:01:440:01:46

Some runners wore anti-pollution

masks as they took part.

0:01:460:01:55

Nick Marshall-McCormack

has all the sport.

0:01:550:02:00

Thanks very much. He was showered in

confetti and he lifted the trophy

0:02:000:02:05

high, what a night for Grigor

Dimitrov after he won the biggest

0:02:050:02:09

tennis tournament of his career at

the ATP finals in London. He had to

0:02:090:02:13

break David Goffin three times to

see to win but he only needed one

0:02:130:02:17

break to win the match. The third

set a tough encounter. It had the

0:02:170:02:23

fans loving the desperate

shotmaking. The crucial break was on

0:02:230:02:26

the sixth game and Dimitrov sealed

the win with his fifth match point.

0:02:260:02:33

Winning $2.5 million for his

trouble. He will finish the year as

0:02:330:02:36

the world number three.

0:02:360:02:38

Tommy Fleetwood has been crowned

European world number one golfer,

0:02:380:02:41

for the first time, after a dramatic

collapse from Justin Rose,

0:02:410:02:44

at the World Tour Championship.

0:02:440:02:48

Spain's Jon Rahm won the last event

of the season while Rose sacrificed

0:02:480:02:51

a one shot lead to throw

away his chance of winning enough

0:02:510:02:55

points to beat Fleetwood.

0:02:550:02:56

Our golf correspondent, Iain Carter,

was watching the action in Dubai.

0:02:560:03:01

No one would have seen this coming,

particularly when Justin Rose was

0:03:010:03:05

apparently cruising towards victory,

not just in the world tour

0:03:050:03:09

championship, but also in the race

to Dubai. A top two finish would

0:03:090:03:14

have got the job done. Rose went to

the turn in 32 and was looking very

0:03:140:03:19

comfortable throughout the entire

front nine. But at the 12, he

0:03:190:03:24

dropped a shot, at the 14th, he

found the water, and at the 16th,

0:03:240:03:28

more bunker trouble and that was

another drop-shot. It meant he

0:03:280:03:33

needed a birdie, birdie finish, he

found a birdie on the 17th, nearly

0:03:330:03:36

got that bunker shot but could not

find the Eagle he needed at the

0:03:360:03:40

last, only a birdie, finished in a

share of fourth place. And Tommy

0:03:400:03:45

Fleetwood who had a poor day round

in 74, he finished in 20 First Place

0:03:450:03:51

and had enough in the bank to make

sure he was the race to Dubai

0:03:510:03:54

champion.

I've been saying it for a

while that The Race to Dubai is

0:03:540:04:01

very, very cool.

2017 can never be

beaten, can it?

0:04:010:04:09

No, it's been a big one.

0:04:090:04:11

Baby Frankie arriving

safely, and he's great.

0:04:110:04:12

I'm going to get married

in a couple of weeks.

0:04:120:04:15

Yeah, I mean, it's been the best

year of my life by an absolute mile.

0:04:150:04:19

And, you know, on the course,

it's been great.

0:04:190:04:21

I've played some of the bestgolf

of my career and done things that

0:04:210:04:24

I've never done before.

0:04:240:04:27

What a cruel game it can be at

times.

0:04:270:04:29

I guess so. The 12th hole was a

disappointing estate with an eight

0:04:290:04:33

iron into the green and even going

down the par-5, everything was in

0:04:330:04:37

hand. Just hit a poor shot into the

water which I guess ultimately kind

0:04:370:04:42

of just put me chasing. And it was

tough to make something happen.

0:04:420:04:50

David Moyes's first match in charge

of West Ham was a 2-0 loss

0:04:500:04:53

to Watford on Sunday,

in the English Premier League.

0:04:530:04:55

Moyes was taking charge

since Slaven Bilic was dismissed,

0:04:550:04:57

and he made three changes

to the side thrashed

0:04:570:04:59

by Liverpool two weeks ago,

including the return of Andy

0:04:590:05:02

Carroll.

0:05:020:05:03

But West Ham's attack was weak

and their creaky defence was exposed

0:05:030:05:06

again by Marco Silva's men.

0:05:060:05:07

Will Hughes and Richarlison scored

in Watford's only second

0:05:070:05:09

home win this season.

0:05:090:05:10

Watford climb to eighth on 18

points with the win,

0:05:100:05:13

while West Ham are stuck

in the relegation zone.

0:05:130:05:20

We want to be in the Games. We

stayed in the game for most of it.

0:05:200:05:25

We made a couple of chances to get

ourselves goals, we did not get them

0:05:250:05:28

today. The girls change games. You

get them, it covers a multitude of

0:05:280:05:33

sins. We didn't take the chances

today so we have to play better,

0:05:330:05:37

that is what I think. I did not

really enjoyed bits of the

0:05:370:05:40

performance that if we had got the

girls, I think it would have turned

0:05:400:05:43

things round a bit.

0:05:430:05:45

And that's all the Sport for now.

0:05:450:05:49

Thank you, see you soon. A reminder

of the top story. The President of

0:05:490:05:55

Thank you, see you soon. A reminder

of the top story. The President of

0:05:550:05:56

Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, has defied

his party by giving an address to

0:05:560:05:59

the nation in which he was expected

to announce his resignation, but he

0:05:590:06:03

did not. Many Zimbabweans are

reported to be baffled by the

0:06:030:06:10

President's move. He was given 24

hours to announce his resignation as

0:06:100:06:16

President, after the Zanu-PF party,

which he founded removed him as

0:06:160:06:19

leader.

0:06:190:06:20

In his televised address, he

insisted he will preside over the

0:06:240:06:27

Party Congress that is happening in

December. This is after the military

0:06:270:06:34

appeared to take power, although he

remains very much in the role of

0:06:340:06:40

President. Refusing to stand down,

defying those calls.

0:06:400:06:45

Plenty more reaction and analysis on

the BBC News website. That is being

0:06:450:06:53

updated all the time. This is BBC

World News today. Thanks for

0:06:530:06:56

watching.
