0:01:070:01:10

in the South Atlantic,

into its disappearance.

0:01:120:01:16

Hello and welcome

to World News Today.

0:01:310:01:34

A deadly terror attack at a mosque

in the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt has

0:01:340:01:37

killed at least 235 people.

0:01:370:01:44

More than 100 people have been

injured, many critically.

0:01:440:01:47

It happened in a remote

town in Northern Sinai,

0:01:470:01:49

near the city of el-Arish.

0:01:500:01:51

Militants entered the mosque

during Friday prayers,

0:01:510:01:53

opening fire and detonating a bomb.

0:01:530:01:56

They were armed with

automatic rifles and rocket

0:01:560:01:58

propelled grenades.

0:01:580:02:01

It is the deadliest attack

yet in the three year

0:02:010:02:03

insurgency in Sinai.

0:02:030:02:07

James Landale has the latest -

a warning there are some

0:02:070:02:10

distressing images in his report.

0:02:100:02:13

These were some of the chaotic

scenes after the attack,

0:02:150:02:18

as hundreds of wounded people

were rushed to nearby hospitals.

0:02:180:02:22

Survivors of one of the most deadly

attacks on civilians in Egypt.

0:02:220:02:26

Witnesses said the militants stormed

the mosque in northern Sinai

0:02:260:02:29

and exploded a bomb inside.

0:02:290:02:32

They said around 40 gunmen then

fired on worshippers

0:02:320:02:34

as they tried to flee.

0:02:340:02:36

They came here to kneel in prayer.

0:02:360:02:38

Instead, they lay down in death.

0:02:380:02:42

President Sisi sent his condolences

to the families of those who had

0:02:420:02:46

died and said the attack would only

increase Egypt's determination

0:02:460:02:49

to face up to terrorism.

0:02:490:02:53

Many of the dead and wounded

were said to be Sufi Muslims,

0:02:530:02:56

whose brand of Islam is rejected

by jihadi extremists.

0:02:560:03:00

But a mass attack on a mosque,

with such devastating consequences,

0:03:000:03:03

is very rare in Egypt.

0:03:030:03:06

This is unprecedented.

0:03:060:03:08

I can't see any particular

imperative behind it

0:03:080:03:10

in the slightest.

0:03:100:03:14

You haven't had this sort

of attack take place before.

0:03:140:03:17

You've seen the rhetoric about Sufis

and Sufism from these radical groups

0:03:170:03:20

for years but you've never seen

an attack like this.

0:03:200:03:30

The militants have long targeted

religious opponents such

0:03:320:03:33

as Coptic Christians,

particularly by mounting

0:03:330:03:35

attacks on their churches.

0:03:350:03:36

They've also killed civilians who

work with the authorities in Sinai.

0:03:360:03:39

Until tonight, Egypt's deadliest

terror attack was the downing

0:03:390:03:41

of a Russian passenger jet over

Sinai in October 2015.

0:03:410:03:43

IS said they were behind the bombing

that killed 224 people.

0:03:430:03:46

But so far no one has claimed

responsibility for today's

0:03:460:03:48

attack, which has now left

even more people dead.

0:03:480:03:50

James Landale, BBC News.

0:03:500:03:59

Joining me in

the studio is Professor Fawaz Gerges

0:03:590:04:01

from the London School of Economics.

0:04:010:04:07

This area has seen some

intense violence -

0:04:070:04:14

This is the most savage attack, in

skill of savagery it is unique. More

0:04:230:04:28

than 400 people killed and injured.

Dozens of attackers using not only

0:04:280:04:34

automatic weapons but also rocket

grenades, targeting the ambulances

0:04:340:04:38

that came to take the victims,

hunting the worshippers. The first

0:04:380:04:43

time that they have attacked the

mosque. Muslims attacking other

0:04:430:04:47

Muslims, even though most of the

worshippers belong to the Sufi

0:04:470:04:52

sacked. Two or three million

objective is -- Egyptians are Sufis.

0:04:520:05:02

Hardliners think that Sufis are

heretical. IIS has decided to attack

0:05:020:05:09

now the Sufis, not just the

Christian context.

This region has

0:05:090:05:14

seen intense violence over the past

few years. What do you think the

0:05:140:05:18

root cause of this violence is?

It

is easy for us to say Al-Qaeda,

0:05:180:05:24

Isis, Al-Qaeda, Isis. There is an

insurgency that has been going on in

0:05:240:05:30

north Sinai for more than a decade.

This particular area of Egypt is

0:05:300:05:34

populated mostly by Bedouins. Dave

Phillips colluded and marginalised,

0:05:340:05:42

treated as second-class citizens, so

they have been revolting against the

0:05:420:05:45

central authority in the past ten

years so. What has happened in the

0:05:450:05:51

last few years, the insurgency has

become radicalised. Despite taken on

0:05:510:05:55

the of Isis. In fact, the Sinai

province pledge allegiance to Isis

0:05:550:06:04

in 2014, so the spectacular rise of

Isis in 2014 has resonated with

0:06:040:06:10

radicals, in particular in North

Sinai, and outside of Syria and Iran

0:06:100:06:14

for this Sinai province, which is

part of Isis, is one of the most

0:06:140:06:20

powerful affiliate site I -- outside

of Iraq and Syria. There are more

0:06:200:06:27

than 1,000 skilled fanatical

determined to kill their own,

0:06:270:06:34

including Muslim believers. If

Chelsea a great deal about how

0:06:340:06:38

difficult the situation in Egypt is

today.

Do you think the government

0:06:380:06:45

is doing enough to protect

minorities in Egypt?

It is very

0:06:450:06:50

easy, time and again, Isis and

Al-Qaeda and militants have targeted

0:06:500:06:55

minorities in Egypt. Why? Because

they want to show that the

0:06:550:06:59

government is impotent. They want to

humiliate the government, should the

0:06:590:07:03

Egyptians that the government does

not have the capacity to protect

0:07:030:07:07

them. They want to plunge Egypt into

sectarian warfare, exactly what

0:07:070:07:12

happened in Iraq and Syria. Think I

easy it is to kill civilians. It

0:07:120:07:17

just takes the will to kill. To go

into an mosque, explode a bomb and

0:07:170:07:23

then basically hummed the

worshippers who are fleeing. No

0:07:230:07:27

government in Britain or the United

States can protect civilians

0:07:270:07:30

periods. The underlying theme of

your question, even though the

0:07:300:07:38

Egyptian government has thrown

everything that the militants, can

0:07:380:07:41

put an end to the multiple

insurgencies, not only in this

0:07:410:07:45

Sinai, but you have another faction

and other freelancers who are

0:07:450:07:52

carrying out attacks in Egypt. It is

a very complicated story and that is

0:07:520:07:56

why the Egyptian government is

facing a major dilemma.

0:07:560:08:00

Thank you very much.

0:08:000:08:08

Zimbabwe has a new president.

0:08:080:08:17

Emmerson Mnangagwa was sworn

in at a ceremony in the national

0:08:170:08:19

stadium in the capital Harare.

0:08:190:08:21

It of course marks the end

of the Mugabe era.

0:08:210:08:23

Robert Mugabe, who had been

in power for 37 years,

0:08:230:08:26

did not attend the ceremony -

the official reason given

0:08:260:08:28

that he was "too tired".

0:08:280:08:29

Our Zimbabwe Correspondent,

Shingai Nyoka, reports.

0:08:290:08:32

The changing of the

guard in Zimbabwe.

0:08:320:08:34

And long-time leader

Robert Mugabe was not

0:08:340:08:35

there to witness it.

0:08:350:08:41

But newly-elected President

Emmerson Mnangagwa doesn't

0:08:410:08:42

need his blessing.

0:08:420:08:43

I, Emmerson Mnangagwa...

0:08:430:08:50

The moment Zimbabweans

have been waiting for,

0:08:500:08:52

the swearing in of this country's

second leader in nearly 40 years.

0:08:520:08:59

This is Zimbabwe's new president,

not through an election

0:08:590:09:01

but with the help of the military.

0:09:010:09:03

It caps the most dramatic two weeks

in Zimbabwe's history,

0:09:030:09:06

and a surprise comeback from a man

who just a fortnight ago fled

0:09:060:09:10

the country in fear of his life.

0:09:100:09:14

With Mugabe's departure,

Mnangagwa will serve

0:09:150:09:18

as interim President

until next year's election.

0:09:180:09:20

But he inherits a fragmented party

and a country broken under Mugabe's

0:09:200:09:23

isolationist policies.

0:09:230:09:28

In his inaugural speech there

was praise for his predecessor.

0:09:280:09:31

He led us in our struggle

for national independence.

0:09:310:09:40

He assumed responsibilities

of leadership at a formative

0:09:400:09:43

and a very challenging time,

at the behest of our nation.

0:09:430:09:49

That is to be lauded and celebrated.

0:09:490:09:54

But also a pledge to

break from the past.

0:09:540:09:56

I am not oblivious to the many

Zimbabweans from our political,

0:09:560:09:59

ethnic and racial divides,

who have helped make this day.

0:09:590:10:09

So, what do we know

about Emmerson Mnangagwa?

0:10:090:10:15

Jailed for ten years in 1965,

he met Mugabe in prison.

0:10:150:10:20

There, the two men formed

a close association.

0:10:200:10:23

After independence in 1980,

he became Mugabe's right-hand man.

0:10:230:10:29

In 1983, he was implicated

in the mass murder of thousands

0:10:290:10:31

of opposition supporters

in Matabeleland,

0:10:310:10:35

something he denies.

0:10:350:10:38

More recently, he was accused

of orchestrating a violent crackdown

0:10:380:10:40

on opposition supporters.

0:10:400:10:44

Those who are very close to him say

that he listens more than he speaks.

0:10:440:10:48

He is a soft-spoken man,

a gentleman, contrary

0:10:480:10:51

to what the reports say about him.

0:10:510:10:54

A God-fearing family man.

0:10:540:10:56

We have to give him some time

because an improvement

0:10:560:10:59

is something which cannot be

improved like overnight.

0:10:590:11:04

After two weeks of uncertainty,

Zimbabwe seems to be

0:11:040:11:07

returning to normal again.

0:11:070:11:09

No one knows what the future

holds, whether Mnangagwa

0:11:090:11:11

is the man to bring a new era

of democracy and freedom.

0:11:110:11:21

Police here in London say

they've found no evidence to support

0:11:210:11:24

reports of shots being fired around

Oxford Circus Underground station

0:11:240:11:26

and have stood down their response.

0:11:260:11:31

The station and nearby Bond Street

were closed and the local area

0:11:310:11:34

placed on lockdown as part

of a major operation.

0:11:340:11:36

Here's our Home Affairs

Correspondent June Kelly.

0:11:360:11:44

It was just after 4:30pm

when the alarm was raised.

0:11:440:11:48

There were reports of two bangs

which sounded like gunshots

0:11:480:11:54

close to Oxford Circus Tube station.

0:11:540:11:56

This was an alert on one of London's

most crowded streets

0:11:560:11:58

in the rushhour on Black Friday,

one of the busiest

0:11:580:12:00

shopping days of the year.

0:12:010:12:02

Hundreds of people were left

frightened and confused

0:12:020:12:04

as they were told to get off

the street and take

0:12:040:12:06

refuge in nearby shops.

0:12:060:12:09

People who did appear to know

what may have happened said

0:12:090:12:12

they thought they heard a gunshot

and I think you could just see

0:12:120:12:15

the panic was just spreading.

0:12:150:12:18

People were sprinting

and crying and running.

0:12:180:12:20

It was very distressing to watch.

0:12:200:12:25

Armed officers were

quickly on the scene.

0:12:250:12:27

Scotland Yard issued a brief

statement saying that the police

0:12:270:12:30

were responding as if the incident

was terrorist related

0:12:300:12:33

and they were working

alongside colleagues

0:12:330:12:35

from British Transport Police,

but then came news that the Met's

0:12:350:12:38

Counterterrorism Command Unit

were not getting involved.

0:12:380:12:44

The police also said there was no

evidence of shots fired or any trace

0:12:440:12:47

of casualties or suspects.

0:12:470:12:50

Amid the mayhem, the Selfridge's

department store, at the other end

0:12:500:12:53

of Oxford Street, was evacuated.

0:12:530:12:57

Just after 6:00pm, the whole area

was declared safe and people

0:12:570:13:00

were allowed to leave buildings

where they had sought shelter.

0:13:000:13:05

Let's take a look

at some of the other

0:13:070:13:09

stories making the news.

0:13:090:13:10

A court in South Africa has

increased the jail sentence

0:13:100:13:12

handed out to athlete

Oscar Pistorius for

0:13:120:13:14

murdering his girlfriend.

0:13:140:13:21

The Court ruled that his

sentence be increased to 13

0:13:210:13:23

years and five months.

0:13:230:13:24

Prosecutors argued that the six-year

term for murdering his girlfriend

0:13:240:13:27

Reeva Steenkamp was too short.

0:13:270:13:29

Saudi Arabia's de-facto ruler has

called Iran's supreme leader

0:13:290:13:32

the "Hitler of the Middle East".

0:13:320:13:34

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman

said the European experience shows

0:13:340:13:36

that appeasing Tehran will not work.

0:13:360:13:38

Saudi Arabia and Iran accuse

each other of fuelling

0:13:380:13:40

instability across the region.

0:13:400:13:48

North Korea appears to be

fortifying its border

0:13:480:13:51

in the Demilitarised Zone

with the South.

0:13:510:13:53

It's after a soldier defected

by running across the zone.

0:13:530:13:58

A US diplomat to South Korea

has tweeted a picture,

0:13:580:14:00

showing workers digging a trench.

0:14:010:14:06

The defector was shot multiple times

by border guards from the North

0:14:060:14:08

at this spot last week.

0:14:080:14:10

He is still in hospital.

0:14:100:14:12

Moroccans gathering

in mosques across the country

0:14:120:14:14

are praying for rain.

0:14:140:14:24

Earlier this week King Mohammed VI

0:14:240:14:25

called for the prayers.

0:14:250:14:26

There has been a severe shortage

of rain in the past few months,

0:14:260:14:30

which has hit agriculture and rural

employment - both central

0:14:300:14:32

to the country's economy.

0:14:320:14:33

An escaped circus tiger

has been shot dead

0:14:330:14:35

on the streets of Paris.

0:14:350:14:36

Members of the public phoned

the emergency services around six

0:14:360:14:39

o'clock in the evening to say

they had seen the animal loose

0:14:390:14:42

near the River Seine

in the west of the city.

0:14:420:14:45

The tiger's owners shot it

near the Gariliano bridge.

I'm Alpa Patel.

0:16:200:16:21

The latest headlines:

0:16:210:16:25

More than 230 people

have been killed

0:16:250:16:27

in a militant attack in Egypt.

0:16:270:16:30

Gunmen stormed a crowded mosque

in the Sinai peninsula

0:16:300:16:32

during Friday prayers.

0:16:320:16:34

Emmerson Manangagwa

has been sworn in as

0:16:350:16:37

Zimbabwe's new president.

0:16:370:16:40

Addressing a packed stadium,

he vowed to serve all

0:16:400:16:42

of the country's citizens.

0:16:420:16:46

The President of the

European Council has said

0:16:480:16:50

the British government's hopes

of an agreement next month to begin

0:16:500:16:52

Brexit trade talks remain

a "huge challenge".

0:16:520:16:59

Following meetings with the British

Prime Minister, Theresa May,

0:16:590:17:01

in Brussels, Donald Tusk said

progress was still needed

0:17:010:17:04

from the UK "on all issues",

within the next 10 days.

0:17:040:17:06

Our deputy political editor

John Pienaar reports from Brussels.

0:17:060:17:10

An amicable divorce from a roomful

of partners, but it's getting tense.

0:17:110:17:15

So, now Theresa May is hinting to EU

leaders, starting with Donald Tusk

0:17:150:17:18

in the summit chair,

that Britain might up and some say

0:17:180:17:21

double its offer of £20 billion

in a separation deal.

0:17:210:17:26

Dig deeper into the nation's purse.

0:17:260:17:29

If only the EU is

ready to talk trade.

0:17:290:17:32

Or this long goodbye

could end in tears -

0:17:320:17:34

the last thing she wanted.

0:17:340:17:37

These negotiations are continuing,

but what I am clear

0:17:370:17:39

about is that we must

step forward together.

0:17:390:17:42

This is for both the UK

and the European Union to move

0:17:420:17:45

onto the next stage.

0:17:450:17:47

Brexit negotiations could, maybe

will, turn to trade next month.

0:17:470:17:50

Leaders here need more persuasion.

0:17:510:17:54

Mr Juncker, are you

worried about Brexit?

0:17:540:18:00

Brexit is a tragedy.

0:18:000:18:03

I will meet the British Prime

Minister on the 3rd of December

0:18:030:18:06

and then we will see if there has

been sufficient progress.

0:18:060:18:09

Are you at all confident that

progress will be made?

0:18:090:18:12

Yes.

0:18:120:18:14

But every country must agree

to start talking trade,

0:18:140:18:17

and Ireland's minority government

is facing the risk

0:18:170:18:19

of collapse at home,

but was sounding tough here.

0:18:190:18:21

Suggesting Brexit talks could stall

without clear guarantees

0:18:210:18:25

there will be no hard

north-south customs border.

0:18:250:18:29

Is Ireland prepared

to block progress?

0:18:290:18:32

I don't think Ireland will have

to block anything on its own.

0:18:320:18:35

There is absolute solidarity

across 27 countries here.

0:18:350:18:40

Germany is not much more supportive.

0:18:400:18:42

Angela Merkel was

already firm on Brexit.

0:18:420:18:43

Now she has her hands full

forming a new government.

0:18:430:18:47

She met Mrs May today,

another leader looking for more give

0:18:470:18:50

on the British side.

0:18:500:18:54

In her one-on-one talks

with the EU Council president,

0:18:540:18:56

no final proposals, no breakthrough.

0:18:570:18:59

And they may not settle hard

numbers on the divorce

0:18:590:19:01

bill for months to come.

0:19:010:19:03

But they explored the case

for more compromise.

0:19:030:19:06

There are still issues

across the various matters

0:19:060:19:08

that we are negotiating on to be

resolved, but there has been a very

0:19:080:19:11

positive atmosphere in the talks

and a genuine feeling

0:19:110:19:14

that we want to move

forward together.

0:19:140:19:17

Neither side wants the Brexit talks

to end in stalemate,

0:19:170:19:19

but without more give and take

it could happen.

0:19:190:19:22

And then the risk would grow

of negotiations ending with no

0:19:220:19:25

EU trade deal at all.

0:19:250:19:27

And that's the outcome business

leaders, who are worried

0:19:270:19:29

about Brexit, say they fear most.

0:19:290:19:33

So, more talking to do ahead

of the next big summit next month.

0:19:330:19:36

The slow march of Brexit goes on.

0:19:360:19:39

Its course and destination

being decided one step at a time.

0:19:390:19:42

John Pienaar, BBC News, Brussels.

0:19:420:19:52

The Argentine president,

Mauricio Macri, says he had ordered

0:19:520:19:54

a thorough investigation

into what happened to

0:19:540:19:56

a submarine that disappeared

more than a week ago.

0:19:560:20:02

Relatives of the 44 crew members

of the San Juan say they've

0:20:020:20:05

lost any hope of seeing

them alive again.

0:20:050:20:07

The Navy says it believes

there was an explosion

0:20:070:20:10

close to its last known location.

0:20:100:20:15

Earlier, I spoke to Candace Piette,

BBC Online's Americas editor.

0:20:150:20:18

She told me what we know

about the investigation.

0:20:180:20:25

The president was careful to say

that this investigation was

0:20:250:20:28

something that he had ordered but it

wouldn't start immediately. We have

0:20:280:20:32

to be aware that there are still

conducting an enormous surge in the

0:20:320:20:35

South Atlantic for this submarine, a

search that involves over 30 ships

0:20:350:20:43

and aeroplanes and involves a large

international group of countries

0:20:430:20:46

that have come out to help. So, he

wanted to give over the idea that he

0:20:460:20:52

is concerned about criticisms of the

family -- and that the families have

0:20:520:21:00

had about the way the Navy has

managed this sort the fair, but that

0:21:000:21:04

he would not interfere with the

search as it is at the moment.

0:21:040:21:14

Now, the sport. In the next few

hours the Australian captain, Steve

0:21:140:21:19

Smith, will look to build on his

innings that saved his side on the

0:21:190:21:25

second day of the first Ashes Test.

Smith will resume on 64. His team

0:21:250:21:35

165-4, trailing England by 137 runs.

At one stage aside and 76-4, so a

0:21:350:21:42

real the's innings to revive his

side. It has been a topsy-turvy

0:21:420:21:47

match so far. The men from switching

either way.

0:21:470:21:53

What an enthralling second day we

had at the Gabba. The pendulum has

0:21:530:21:58

swung, but it has ended with honours

pretty much even. England's begun

0:21:580:22:03

the day in a decent position,

batting really well for an hour and

0:22:030:22:07

a half, but then it all went wrong.

They lost their last six wickets for

0:22:070:22:13

just 56 runs in barely an hour. 302

all out at lunch. Australia seem

0:22:130:22:19

very much in the ascendancy. But

then the English bowlers help them

0:22:190:22:25

fight back, Stuart Broad taking the

first wicket. Australia subsided to

0:22:250:22:32

76-4 at one stage, but then her

recovery thanks to his captain Steve

0:22:320:22:38

Smith and Shaun Marsh. They guided

Australia through to 105-4 at the

0:22:380:22:43

close, so another day of fluctuating

fortunes, but the match is

0:22:430:22:48

intriguingly poised going into day

three.

0:22:480:22:53

Sri Lanka were dismissed for 205 in

their first innings against India on

0:22:530:22:57

the first day of the second test.

0:22:570:23:00

Qualification for the woman's World

Cup in 2019 is continuing around

0:23:170:23:23

Europe. England played their second

match in group A. They beat Bosnia

0:23:230:23:27

4-0. Portugal have beat Moldova yet-

zero.

0:23:270:23:31

The draw for the quarterfinal stage

of the woman's Champions League has

0:23:380:23:42

pledged Lyon against Barcelona. Will

spark this Prague, Montpelier will

0:23:420:23:50

play Chelsea and Manchester City

will play the Swedish champions, who

0:23:500:23:55

have never been part of the last

eight. Belgium and France are level

0:23:550:24:00

after the first day of the Davis Cup

final. David Goffin beat Lucas

0:24:000:24:05

Pouille. That end the run of three

defeats to the Frenchman, given

0:24:050:24:13

Belgium the best possible start as

they hope to end what has been a 16

0:24:130:24:16

year run of three defeats to the

Frenchman, given Belgium the best

0:24:160:24:19

possible start as they hope to end

what has been a 16 year brands

0:24:190:24:22

without ever winning the title.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga -- Jo-Wilfried

0:24:220:24:24

Tsonga did manage to win his game.

The Frenchman dropping just six

0:24:240:24:31

games in the match. The

International Olympic Committee has

0:24:310:24:39

given for more Russian athletes life

bans for doping violations. The most

0:24:390:24:43

high-profile of these is the

bobsleigh athlete Alexander's took

0:24:430:24:50

off. It means Roger have now lost

nine medals, including four of their

0:24:500:24:56

13 golds from the games, which they

hosted back in 2014. The IOC said it

0:24:560:25:04

avoided -- have avoided those

results. That is all the sport for

0:25:040:25:11

now.

0:25:110:25:13

Thank you.

US actress Uma Thurman has sent out

a Thanksgiving message

0:25:180:25:21

venting anger at movie mogul

Harvey Weinstein.

0:25:210:25:26

Thurman said on Instagram:

"When I'm ready, I'll say

0:25:260:25:28

what I have to say...

0:25:290:25:30

stay tuned", adding that she had

a few reasons to be angry.

0:25:300:25:33

Her message wished a happy

Thanksgiving to everyone except,

0:25:330:25:36

she said, "You Harvey

and all your wicked conspirators".

0:25:360:25:38

Weinstein denies all allegations

of non-consensual sex.
