Our top stories.

0:00:100:00:13

The first aid shipment in weeks

arrives at Yemen's rebel-held port

0:00:130:00:15

after the Saudi-led coalition

eases its blockade.

0:00:150:00:20

More details emerge about the attack

on a mosque in Egypt

0:00:200:00:23

which killed 300 people.

0:00:230:00:24

Officials believe up to 30

gunmen were involved

0:00:240:00:30

Thousands are evacuated from around

Bali's Mount Agung

0:00:300:00:32

which has been

spewing out ash and steam

0:00:320:00:34

for the second time in a week.

0:00:340:00:37

Also in the programme,

0:00:370:00:40

cracking down on the

illegal use of drones.

0:00:400:00:42

Police in the UK could be given new

powers following safety concerns.

0:00:420:00:52

Hello and welcome

to World News Today.

0:01:030:01:04

The United Nations says the first

ship carrying aid to

0:01:040:01:07

a rebel-held port has arrived,

after the Saudi-led coalition eased

0:01:070:01:09

a blockade that's lasted

nearly three weeks.

0:01:090:01:11

The World Food Programme says

0:01:110:01:12

the vessel docked at Saleef,

loaded with 25-thousand tonnes

0:01:120:01:14

of desperately-needed wheat.

0:01:140:01:20

Saleef is about 70 km north

of Hodeida which has been the main

0:01:200:01:23

conduit for UN-supervised deliveries

of food and medicine.

0:01:230:01:29

But what's thought to be

a commercial ship has

0:01:290:01:31

arrived in Hudaydah,

raising hopes that shipping

0:01:310:01:32

could resume to the port,

seen as vital to UN efforts

0:01:320:01:35

as it is closest to the majority

of people in need.

0:01:350:01:39

A UN plane carrying

desperately needed vaccines

0:01:390:01:42

landed in the rebel-held Yemeni

capital Sanaa on Saturday.

0:01:420:01:44

Coalition forces had partly

lifted the blockade,

0:01:440:01:46

after warnings that thousands

of people could die.

0:01:460:01:48

The UN child agency

welcomed the reopening

0:01:480:01:50

of the airport to aid flights.

0:01:500:01:56

It allowed us to send in the first

humanitarian convoy, 1.9 million

0:02:060:02:12

doses of vaccines, which are

urgently needed. For a planned

0:02:120:02:16

campaign to vaccinate 600,000

children, across Yemen. Vaccinate

0:02:160:02:22

them against diphtheria, meningitis,

whooping cough, pneumonia and

0:02:220:02:30

tuberculosis.

0:02:300:02:32

Stephen Anderson

is the Director

of the World Food Programme

0:02:330:02:36

in Yemen, speaking from the capital

Sanaa, he confirmed their ship

0:02:360:02:38

was waiting to unload.

0:02:390:02:42

The ship just arrived in a port

which is just due north of the port

0:02:420:02:51

of Hodeida on the red Sea in Yemen,

and it has sufficient food for 1.8

0:02:510:02:58

million Yemenis for one month,

Yemenis on the brink of starvation,

0:02:580:03:05

which is an extremely important

development for us.

Talking about 20

0:03:050:03:10

million people in Yemen needing

urgent assistance, it is such an

0:03:100:03:14

extraordinary figure, isn't it, tell

us what life is like for people?

0:03:140:03:21

Most of the civil servants, for over

a year, have not received their

0:03:210:03:24

salaries. We have two thirds of the

population who does not know where

0:03:240:03:31

their next meal is going to come

from. And we are trying to target

0:03:310:03:34

the most urgent among them, around 7

million, and of course, with onset,

0:03:340:03:43

recent onset of the blockade, and

the restrictions at all this, all

0:03:430:03:52

the prices went up, prices of food

and fuel and basic necessities. This

0:03:520:03:59

really impacts children, women,

elderly, the most. So the country is

0:03:590:04:06

really in freefall.

How difficult

has it been for your ship to get to

0:04:060:04:12

the position where it is now?

It has

been extremely difficult, the

0:04:120:04:18

blockade was announce on the 5th of

November, it actually arrived off

0:04:180:04:25

the coast on the 11th of November,

and it has been waiting, we have

0:04:250:04:30

kept it waiting, it has been

waiting. We need that food is

0:04:300:04:37

desperately for northern Yemen, the

people who are, as I said, on the

0:04:370:04:41

brink of starvation, and so we

persevered, and we are extremely

0:04:410:04:47

pleased to see that we finally got

permission last night.

0:04:470:04:53

Thousands of people have been

evacuated from the area around

0:04:530:04:55

Bali's Mount Agung which has been

spewing out ash and steam

0:04:550:04:58

for the second time in a week.

0:04:580:05:00

There are fears of a full scale

eruption

0:05:000:05:02

for the first time since 1963

0:05:020:05:06

when about 1,500 people were killed.

0:05:060:05:08

Indonesia has issued its most

serious warning for aircraft,

0:05:080:05:10

and many tourists have

been left stranded.

0:05:100:05:17

Tiffany Wertheimer reports.

0:05:180:05:23

VOICEOVER: The people of Indonesia

are used to sites like these, the

0:05:230:05:27

mountain is for the second time this

week 's UN black ash high into the

0:05:270:05:31

sky. Balkan knowledges to have

detected molten rock close to the

0:05:310:05:36

surface, which means a powerful

eruption could be imminent. Mount

0:05:360:05:42

Agun S been declared a danger zone,

and everyone within the seven and a

0:05:420:05:48

half alarm at radius has been

evacuated. -- Volcanologist.

We must

0:05:480:06:00

exercise caution for the possibility

of a strong explosive eruption.

It

0:06:000:06:04

is this the ash spewing six hours

and metres into the sky which

0:06:040:06:10

presents the greatest danger to

human life, within it, sharp

0:06:100:06:14

fragments of glass, crystal and

rock. Authorities are handing out

0:06:140:06:19

masks to everyone in its path.

25,000 people have fled to

0:06:190:06:24

evacuation centres but they are

struggling to cope. In September,

0:06:240:06:30

140,000 people fled when Mount Agung

first started rumbling, many have

0:06:300:06:39

never left shelters, too frightened

to return home. On the ground, the

0:06:390:06:43

alert status is three out of four,

and authorities say that the island

0:06:430:06:47

is safe.

The local residents are

still getting worried about their

0:06:470:06:53

daily business. Still cleaning up

the ash, to make the place

0:06:530:06:57

presentable.

Bali is a major tourist

destination and results are still

0:06:570:07:07

open although many flights have been

cancelled or diverted. However, the

0:07:070:07:13

ash cloud is drifting east, towards

the island of Lompoc, and it's

0:07:130:07:21

airport has been closed.

We are

trying to find out how to get out.

0:07:210:07:26

Indonesia is home to more than 130

active volcanoes, and sits on the

0:07:260:07:31

Pacific ring of fire, where there is

frequent seismic and volcanic

0:07:310:07:35

activity, Mount Agung is the most

sacred mountain in meat back Bali

0:07:350:07:39

and the last interrupted was 1963,

1500 people died. -- the most sacred

0:07:390:07:46

mountain in Bali. This time around,

no one is taking any chances.

0:07:460:07:54

Let's take a look at some of

the other stories making the news.

0:07:540:08:01

At least 23 civilians are reported

0:08:010:08:02

killed in the latest Syrian

government attacks

0:08:020:08:04

on a rebel-held enclave

on the outskirts of Damascus.

0:08:040:08:06

Activists say towns

in the Eastern Ghouta district have

0:08:060:08:08

been subjected to air strikes

and artillery fire.

0:08:080:08:10

The UN says after years of siege,

conditions are dire

0:08:100:08:12

for the 400,000 people

living in the enclave.

0:08:120:08:19

Officials in China say two people

have been killed and more

0:08:190:08:21

than thirty injured in a big

explosion at a factory in the port

0:08:210:08:24

city of Ningbo, south of Shanghai.

0:08:240:08:26

Windows more than a kilometre

away were reportedly

0:08:260:08:28

shattered by the blast.

0:08:280:08:29

-- 30.

0:08:290:08:30

Police say the cause is unclear.

0:08:300:08:34

Cambodia's Prime Minister, Hun Sen,

has asked to shut down one

0:08:340:08:36

of the country's main

human rights groups.

0:08:360:08:38

The NGO founder is an opposition

leader who is now in jail.

0:08:380:08:41

Earlier this month the Supreme Court

dissolved the main opposition party.

0:08:410:08:44

This means Mr Hun Sen will run

potentially unopposed

0:08:440:08:46

in next year's election.

0:08:460:08:55

More details are emerging

about the mosque attack

0:08:550:08:58

in Egypt on Friday,

0:08:580:08:59

the worst the country has

suffered in recent memory.

0:08:590:09:03

Three hundred worshippers, including

dozens of children, were killed.

0:09:030:09:05

As our Middle East correspondent

Orla Guerin reports,

0:09:050:09:07

local people are asking what more

can be done in the fight

0:09:070:09:10

against extremists in Sinai.

0:09:100:09:11

Her report contains some

distressing images.

0:09:110:09:18

Trying to bring comfort

after an attack that has horrified

0:09:180:09:20

Egypt and caused shock

around the world.

0:09:200:09:22

Among the survivors, the imam,

Mohammed Abdul Fatah.

0:09:220:09:24

He was leading the prayers

when terror came to the mosque.

0:09:240:09:27

As soon as people heard firing

they started to run, he said.

0:09:270:09:29

Some climbed onto the pulpit.

0:09:290:09:31

They were piled

on top of each other.

0:09:310:09:33

The attackers were shooting

at anyone breathing.

0:09:330:09:43

My friends lost their families,

0:09:430:09:44

lost their cousins and brothers,

0:09:440:09:45

some of them lost their sons.

0:09:450:09:55

This Sinai journalist

is from Bir al-Abed,

0:09:550:09:56

where the attack took place.

0:09:560:09:57

He says it's a turning

point for local tribes,

0:09:570:10:00

who have resolved to hunt

the militants themselves.

0:10:000:10:02

They had a meeting of their chiefs.

0:10:020:10:07

The tribe members yesterday, almost

400 people were in the meeting.

0:10:070:10:09

And they decided to carry arms.

0:10:090:10:19

And here, in a propaganda

video, the main suspects,

0:10:190:10:22

the Egyptian branch of IS,

which has found fertile ground

0:10:220:10:24

among the desert sands

and neglect in Sinai.

0:10:240:10:33

Now it has real money, resources,

0:10:330:10:36

weapons and recruits.

0:10:360:10:37

Sadly and tragically,

the Egyptian government has

0:10:370:10:38

basically used only military means

against the Isis

0:10:380:10:40

branch in North Sinai.

0:10:400:10:44

What you need

0:10:440:10:49

is to dislodge Isis from the social,

economical and political grievances

0:10:490:10:52

that exist in Sinai.

0:10:520:10:53

Experts say the Egyptian army has

been relying only on military might

0:10:530:10:56

to try to defeat IS in Sinai.

0:10:560:10:57

But now, more than ever,

it needs a new battle plan.

0:10:570:11:00

Orla Guerin, BBC News, Cairo.

0:11:000:11:10

The man who mediated Robert Mugabe's

resignation with the military has

0:11:190:11:21

said the former president

of Zimbabwe will continue to play

0:11:210:11:24

an active role in politics,

albeit in an advisory capacity.

0:11:240:11:26

Father Fidelis Mukonori,

0:11:260:11:27

a close friend of Mr Mugabe attended

the meeting with the army

0:11:270:11:30

generals last week.

0:11:300:11:31

He says the former leader wasn't

offered a deal to resign,

0:11:310:11:34

but decided to step down

for the good of the country.

0:11:340:11:36

He spoke to the BBC's

Richard Galpin.

0:11:360:11:46

Outside the capital, Harare,

a celebration of the first mass

0:11:510:11:54

in what is a new era for Zimbabwe.

0:11:540:11:58

The end of the rule

of Robert Mugabe, unleashing

0:11:580:12:00

a sense of freedom not felt

for decades here.

0:12:000:12:03

And the Jesuit priest

conducting the service,

0:12:030:12:04

Father Fidelis Mukonori,

is the man who brought it all about,

0:12:040:12:07

he is close to Robert Mugabe

and acted as a mediator.

0:12:070:12:17

Having played such a crucial role

in the transfer of power,

0:12:190:12:29

what then can Father Fidelis reveal

about the deals done to persuade

0:12:300:12:33

Robert Mugabe to stand down and how

the former president is reacting

0:12:330:12:36

to losing control of the country?

0:12:360:12:38

In his office, Father Fidelis said

0:12:380:12:48

that Mr Mugabe's decision to resign

was the best thing he had ever done.

0:12:490:12:58

He also said Mugabe will still

play an active role.

0:12:580:13:01

I don't know how you do it

in the rest of the world

0:13:010:13:04

but in the African world,

senior citizens

0:13:040:13:06

are there for advice.

0:13:060:13:07

In his office, Father Fidelis said

0:13:070:13:08

that Mr Mugabe's decision to resign

was the best thing he had ever done.

0:13:080:13:11

He also said Mugabe will still

play an active role.

0:13:110:13:14

I don't know how you do it

in the rest of the world

0:13:140:13:17

but in the African world,

senior citizens

0:13:170:13:19

are there for advice.

0:13:190:13:20

But will people go to him

for advice, for example,

0:13:200:13:22

the new president?

0:13:220:13:23

The new president said, he is my

mentor, he is my father, my leader.

0:13:230:13:27

When he is my father,

my leader, my mentor,

0:13:270:13:29

as he said, I don't think so.

0:13:290:13:30

You played a key role as the main

mediator to persuade

0:13:300:13:33

Robert Mugabe to stand down;

0:13:330:13:34

what was the deal which did persuade

him to go,

0:13:340:13:37

what was he given,

what has he been offered?

0:13:370:13:39

We did not offer him anything.

0:13:390:13:40

You are asking a direct

question for him to resign,

0:13:400:13:43

he was not offered anything,

0:13:430:13:45

he resigned for

the good of Zimbabwe.

0:13:450:13:55

There are reports that he has been

offered millions of dollars,

0:14:060:14:09

that he will have immunity

from prosecution, that all his

0:14:090:14:11

businesses will be left untouched.

0:14:110:14:12

Is that correct?

0:14:120:14:13

What I have read in

the newspapers about immunity...

0:14:130:14:15

That he will be looked after,

like any other head of state.

0:14:150:14:18

That is what I have

read in the newspapers.

0:14:180:14:20

How confident are you that the new

president

0:14:200:14:22

will pursue a democratic path

0:14:220:14:24

rather than reverting to a more

autocratic presidency,

0:14:240:14:25

like that of Robert Mugabe?

0:14:250:14:27

He has said so.

0:14:270:14:28

That he will be a democrat?

Yes.

0:14:280:14:31

And you believe him?

0:14:310:14:34

Well, I do,

0:14:340:14:40

after 50 years of active life

as a soldier and as a politician,

0:14:400:14:44

he knows what it means,

0:14:440:14:51

he knows that democracy is crucial.

0:14:510:14:55

At the moment, this remains

a honeymoon period for Zimbabwe,

0:14:550:14:57

people here determined to believe

real change has come,

0:14:570:14:59

but that has yet to be proven.

0:14:590:15:09

Stay with us on BBC World News,

still to come: cracking down on the

0:15:210:15:25

illegal use of drones, police in the

UK could be given new powers

0:15:250:15:30

following concerns over safety

0:15:300:15:33

headlines: the first aid shipment in

weeks arrives at Yemen's rebel held

0:16:510:17:00

port after the Saudi led coalition

eases its blockade. Thousands are

0:17:000:17:05

evacuated from around Bali's Mount

Agung which has been spewing out ash

0:17:050:17:07

and steam for the second time in a

week.

0:17:070:17:10

Ireland's European Union

commissioner, Phil Hogan,

0:17:100:17:12

has said his country will "play

tough to the end" over its threat

0:17:120:17:15

to stop Brexit talks progressing.

0:17:150:17:16

The EU says more clarity is needed

on the future border

0:17:160:17:19

between the Irish Republic

and Northern Ireland,

0:17:190:17:21

which is part of the UK.

0:17:210:17:22

The government in the south doesn't

want to see a new physical

0:17:220:17:25

border with the north.

0:17:250:17:26

Our political correspondent

Chris Mason explains.

0:17:260:17:28

Could this be the 310-mile

sticking point

0:17:290:17:31

that stops the Brexit

talks moving on?

0:17:310:17:32

The border between Northern

Ireland and the Republic,

0:17:320:17:34

what will soon be the frontier

between the UK and the EU.

0:17:340:17:37

Ireland insists it must remain open,

and almost invisible after Brexit,

0:17:370:17:40

or it could block the negotiations

progressing to discuss trade.

0:17:400:17:42

But the Government says until there

is a discussion about the future,

0:17:420:17:45

the border issue can't be resolved.

0:17:450:17:55

We can't get a final answer

to the Irish question until we get

0:17:580:18:01

an idea of the end state,

0:18:010:18:02

and until we get into discussions

with the EU on the end state,

0:18:020:18:05

that will be very difficult.

0:18:050:18:15

So the quicker we can do that,

the better, and we're

0:18:150:18:17

still in the position where the EU

doesn't want to do that.

0:18:170:18:20

And we're getting close now to 2018,

when we will be talking

0:18:200:18:23

about next year when we leave

the European Union.

0:18:230:18:25

There's long been irritation

in government here that the EU

0:18:250:18:28

won't let talks progress

until sufficient progress has been

0:18:280:18:30

made on money, citizens' rights

and the Irish border.

0:18:300:18:32

Both London and Dublin agree

that they don't want to see

0:18:320:18:35

the return of a hard border,

but neither side has yet publicly

0:18:350:18:38

suggested a solution which both

would be happy with.

0:18:380:18:40

The Government wants the UK to leave

what's known as the single market

0:18:400:18:43

and the customs union after Brexit.

0:18:430:18:48

Meaning, in broad terms,

0:18:480:18:54

our economy and the EU economy

0:18:540:18:55

would be governed

by different rules.

0:18:550:18:57

Some say that means it'll be

impossible not to have a more

0:18:570:19:00

obvious border, and so...

0:19:000:19:05

The way to stay the same

on the island of Ireland,

0:19:050:19:08

as it is today, post-Brexit

is for at least the UK to take

0:19:080:19:11

their red line off the table.

0:19:110:19:12

But to stay in the customs union

and single market gives us

0:19:120:19:15

what we have today,

0:19:150:19:25

an invisible border, seamless trade,

0:19:260:19:27

and it also will build and help us

keep those relationships.

0:19:270:19:30

Ministers here though insist

that will not happen.

0:19:300:19:32

Labour says the Government needs

to be willing to be more flexible.

0:19:320:19:35

What this Government has done is it

has ruled out remaining a member

0:19:350:19:38

of the single market or a member

of the customs union.

0:19:380:19:40

That is what they have said very

clearly, that they are going

0:19:400:19:43

to leave both of those institutions.

0:19:430:19:45

We have not ruled

those off the table.

0:19:450:19:47

We've said they are still options.

0:19:470:19:52

Christmas is getting closer,

0:19:520:19:55

but next month's crunch EU

Summit is closer still.

0:19:550:19:57

This is a delicate operation.

0:19:570:20:04

All sides agree a unique solution

is needed for the Irish border.

0:20:040:20:07

But they agree too

that pulling that off

0:20:070:20:09

is an incredibly tricky manoeuvre.

0:20:090:20:10

Chris Mason, BBC News,

at Westminster.

0:20:100:20:20

Here in Britain, police

could be given the power

0:20:330:20:36

to crack down on the illegal use

of drones,

0:20:360:20:38

as part of proposed new legislation.

0:20:380:20:40

Around the world there have been

concerns about drones

0:20:400:20:42

flying near airports,

and being used for smuggling

0:20:420:20:44

and even terrorism.

0:20:440:20:45

Joe Lynam reports.

0:20:450:20:46

They could be one of the most

coveted presents this Christmas.

0:20:460:20:48

Prices have come down and you can do

a lot more with them.

0:20:480:20:52

This potential customer says

he would use one for aerial

0:20:520:20:54

surveys and research.

0:20:540:20:55

But he knows there needs

to be more controls.

0:20:550:20:57

It's all for safety, isn't it?

0:20:570:20:59

We don't want drones crashing

into planes and things like that.

0:20:590:21:01

Safety concerns surrounding drones

were highlighted in July,

0:21:010:21:03

when Gatwick Airport had to close

when a drone was flown under

0:21:030:21:06

a plane about to land.

0:21:060:21:07

There have been near misses

at Leeds Bradford,

0:21:070:21:09

Cork and Manchester

airports since 2015.

0:21:090:21:11

And to prevent drones getting too

close,

0:21:110:21:12

the proposed Drone Bill

0:21:120:21:13

could mean that owners of drones

weighing more than 250g

0:21:130:21:16

will need to register and do a test.

0:21:160:21:21

They will be banned

from flying near airports,

0:21:210:21:24

or higher than 120

metres, or 400 feet.

0:21:240:21:34

And police will get new powers

to seize unmanned aerial vehicles.

0:21:340:21:36

But drones have a growing list

of useful applications.

0:21:360:21:39

This prototype can fly into water

and propel itself back out.

0:21:390:21:41

These drones can be used

on oil rigs to fix cables

0:21:410:21:44

in treacherous conditions.

0:21:440:21:45

And they are the types of uses

that the Aviation Minister

0:21:450:21:48

wants to encourage.

0:21:480:21:50

We've looked at the drones

today which can help

0:21:500:21:52

in the construction industry,

in the mining industry,

0:21:520:22:02

an offshore oil rigs.

0:22:070:22:08

And what's really exciting

is that they can do the jobs that

0:22:080:22:11

actually put people at risk,

so hopefully it will help

0:22:110:22:14

with safety as well.

0:22:140:22:15

With the rising popularity of drones

comes the issue of potential

0:22:150:22:17

misuse by the public.

0:22:170:22:18

This legislation could mean that

new users won't be able to simply

0:22:180:22:21

take it out of the box and start

flying it straightaway.

0:22:210:22:24

Tolsen Tullet has all the sport.

0:22:350:22:36

Top of the league Barcelona

0:22:360:22:37

were denied a penalty in the first

half of their match

0:22:370:22:40

against Valencia.

0:22:400:22:41

Replays appeared to show the ball

from a Lionel Messi shot

0:22:410:22:44

that was fumbled by Neto had clearly

crossed the line but with goal line

0:22:440:22:47

technology not in use

the goal wasn't awarded.

0:22:470:22:49

Rodrigo then added insult to injury

with a goal on the hour

0:22:490:22:52

mark that sees Valencia ahead

and if it stays that way

0:22:520:22:54

would narrow the gap

at the top to just one point.

0:22:540:22:57

Elsewhere 5th-placed Sevilla

continued their habit

0:22:570:22:58

of coming from behind,

0:22:580:22:59

this time they went 2-0 down

to Villarreal only to win 3-2,

0:22:590:23:02

Ever Banega with a penalty to win it

12 minutes from time

0:23:020:23:05

while Las Palmas move off the bottom

0:23:050:23:07

after a 2-2 draw at Real Sociedad

with Deportivo La Coruna

0:23:070:23:10

and Athletic Bilbao finishing 2-2.

0:23:100:23:17

Manchester City scored

two second half goals

0:23:170:23:22

to re-establish their eight point

lead at the top of the English

0:23:220:23:24

Peremier League winning 2-1

at Huddersfield Town.

0:23:240:23:26

Pep Guardiola's side

equalled the club record,

0:23:260:23:28

set in 2015, by securing an 11th

successive Premier League victory,

0:23:280:23:31

despite falling behind

through a Nicolas Otamendi own goal.

0:23:310:23:33

Raheem Sterling scored the winner

with six minutes remaining

0:23:330:23:35

which added to the penalty converted

by Sergio Aguero shortly

0:23:350:23:38

after the half time interval.

0:23:380:23:39

It was the first time City have come

from behind at half-time to win

0:23:390:23:42

a Premier League away match

since April 1995.

0:23:420:23:46

The Premier League is so tough,

especially now winter has come. They

0:23:520:23:58

are so aggressive. So strong, but we

are so happy for the way we have won

0:23:580:24:07

this.

0:24:070:24:10

A controversial stoppage time

penalty from Alexis Sanchez handed

0:24:130:24:16

Arsenal a 1-0 victory

against Burnley at Turf Moor.

0:24:160:24:18

The win moves the Gunners up

to fourth in the table ahead

0:24:180:24:21

of north London rivals Tottenham,

while the Clarets remain 7th.

0:24:210:24:23

Elsewhere Everton's wretched season

continues losing 4-1 at Southampton

0:24:230:24:25

with Saints striker Charlie Austin

scoring two second-half headers

0:24:250:24:27

on his first league

start of the season.

0:24:270:24:31

France have clinched

their 10th Davis Cup title,

0:24:310:24:33

after Lucas Pouille's convincing

0:24:330:24:34

victory over Steve Darcis

in the deciding match in Lille.

0:24:340:24:39

The Frenchman won in straight

sets 6-3, 6-1, 6-0,

0:24:390:24:41

wrapping up the best-of-five tie

3-2.

0:24:410:24:44

It's France's first title since 2001

0:24:440:24:46

which was celebrated

wildly by the 27,000 crowd

0:24:460:24:56

at the Pierre Moroit stadium.

Valtteri Bottas brought

0:25:000:25:01

the Formula One season to a close

with an untroubled win at

0:25:010:25:04

the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday.

0:25:040:25:06

His Mercedes team

mate Lewis Hamilton -

0:25:060:25:08

who won his fourth World

Championship with two races

0:25:080:25:10

still remaining in the season -

couldn't end his campaign in front

0:25:100:25:13

while Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel

was outclassed in third place.

Sailors from the Royal Navy have

been performing the famous Changing

0:25:270:25:30

the Guard ceremony outside

Buckingham Palace in

0:25:300:25:32

London for the first time

in its 350 year history.

0:25:320:25:34

The ceremony involves one set

of guards, the Old Guard,

0:25:340:25:36

handing over the responsibility

of protecting Buckingham Palace

0:25:360:25:38

and St James's Palace

to another set of guards,

0:25:380:25:40

the New Guard.

0:25:410:25:42

The manoeuvres are usually carried

out by a regiment from the army.
