This is BBC World News Today.

I'm Geeta Guru-Murthy.

Our top stories...

0:00:050:00:08

Protests continue against

President Trump's recognition

0:00:080:00:09

of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

0:00:090:00:12

The Israeli Prime Minister

says Palestinians have

0:00:120:00:13

to accept the decision.

0:00:130:00:21

I think the sooner the Palestinians

come to grips with this reality, the

0:00:210:00:26

sooner we move towards peace.

0:00:260:00:28

Britain's Foreign Secretary

Boris Johnson leaves Iran

0:00:280:00:30

without agreement on the release

of the dual national

0:00:300:00:32

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe -

but her husband tells the BBC

0:00:320:00:34

he thinks there may now be

more chance of her being

0:00:340:00:37

home for Christmas.

0:00:370:00:43

I've got reasonable hopes. It feels

to me that I can see light at the

0:00:430:00:48

end of the tunnel. I just don't know

how long the tunnel is.

0:00:480:00:52

Heavy snow fall causes disruption

across much of the UK,

0:00:520:00:55

bringing problems on the roads,

railways and at airports.

0:00:550:00:58

Hello and welcome

to World News Today.

0:01:070:01:08

There have been more protests

in the Arab and Muslim world

0:01:080:01:11

against President Trump's decision

to recognise Jerusalem

0:01:110:01:13

as the capital of Israel.

0:01:130:01:15

Violence flared near the US embassy

in Beirut, and thousands gathered

0:01:150:01:19

to express their anger

in the Moroccan capital Rabat,

0:01:190:01:23

as well as in Cairo and Istanbul.

0:01:230:01:26

It comes as US Vice President Mike

Pence strongly criticised

0:01:260:01:30

the Palestinian Authority,

saying it was "unfortunate" that

0:01:300:01:34

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas

was declining to meet Mr Pence

0:01:340:01:36

on his forthcoming

trip to the region.

0:01:360:01:39

With the latest,

here's Sebastian Usher.

0:01:390:01:48

Tear gas was fired into a crowd of

around 1000 protesters in Beirut as

0:01:480:01:53

they tried to reach the US Embassy

this morning. Effigies of President

0:01:530:01:59

Trump and US flags were burned by

angry groups of Palestinian refugees

0:01:590:02:05

and Lebanese activists. We are here

to tell the US embassy, the Embassy

0:02:050:02:10

of the aggressor, that Jerusalem is

Arab, was Arab and it will stay

0:02:100:02:15

Arab, this man says. Large rallies

have been held in the Moroccan

0:02:150:02:20

capital, Rabatts. And in Cairo too.

Protesters tried to build momentum

0:02:200:02:28

across the region against President

Trump's decision. In Istanbul,

0:02:280:02:33

thousands turned out to hear

President Erdogan launched a

0:02:330:02:37

blistering attack on President Trump

and Israel.

0:02:370:02:41

TRANSLATION:

Israel is a terrorist

state. We will not abandon Jerusalem

0:02:410:02:46

to the mercy of a state that kills

children.

That lent him a fierce

0:02:460:02:51

riposte from the Israeli Prime

Minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, who

0:02:510:02:57

said he wasn't used to receiving

lessons from morality on a leader

0:02:570:03:01

who bombs Kurdish villages. He also

had a message on Jerusalem.

It has

0:03:010:03:08

always been our capital. The sooner

the Palestinians come to grips with

0:03:080:03:12

this reality, the sooner we move

towards peaceful is white as clashes

0:03:120:03:17

again broke out near the fence

between Gaza and Israel, many fear

0:03:170:03:22

that President Trump's move will

reignite violence.

0:03:220:03:26

To discuss the reaction that we've

seen to President Trump's

0:03:260:03:28

announcement and what

the consequences for

0:03:280:03:30

the region might be,

I'm joined by Khaled El Gindy,

0:03:300:03:32

a fellow at the Brookings

Institution and a former advisor

0:03:320:03:34

to the Palestinian leadership.

0:03:350:03:38

Thanks for joining us. Would it not

be better for the Palestinian

0:03:380:03:42

leaders to meet the Vice President

of the United States now?

Clearly

0:03:420:03:49

they have calculated that it's not

better for them. I think the

0:03:490:03:54

calculation probably goes something

like this - if they meet with the

0:03:540:03:58

Vice President, they will be very

negatively received back home, and

0:03:580:04:04

probably thoroughly discredited,

even more so than they are in the

0:04:040:04:06

eyes of their people. If they do go

back and meet with the Vice

0:04:060:04:12

President, or re-engage in an

American led peace process, they

0:04:120:04:18

probably have very, very little to

gain in terms of a future

0:04:180:04:24

Palestinian state or some kind of

credible peace agreement. Since we

0:04:240:04:28

have some idea as to what is in the

Trump peace initiative.

That are the

0:04:280:04:36

hopes of president Abbas really

dashed now? Some are saying the two

0:04:360:04:40

state peace solution, that there is

no hope for that, that we are

0:04:400:04:46

looking at a one state solution in

many quarters?

That is certainly the

0:04:460:04:53

view among younger Palestinians,

which is why this is such a huge

0:04:530:04:58

blow to our bass's leadership. They

are a generation who have staked

0:04:580:05:06

their political future and their

credibility for more than 25 years

0:05:060:05:12

on a 2-state solution. And not only

on that, but on an American peace

0:05:120:05:16

process that will get us there. So

that US led peace process has been

0:05:160:05:25

discredited, even in the eyes of

Mahmud Abbas, who was its main

0:05:250:05:30

champion up until a few days ago.

World this effectively promote a

0:05:300:05:36

different set of leaders with more

extreme views within the

0:05:360:05:39

Palestinians now?

It is possible.

There is a real leadership vacuum in

0:05:390:05:48

the Palestinian national movement.

Both of the two main factions, Hamas

0:05:480:05:54

on the one hand, and Fatah of

President Abbas on the other, seem

0:05:540:05:59

to have failed in their respective

programmes. There doesn't seem to be

0:05:590:06:04

an alternative at this moment. So we

are likely to see a lot of

0:06:040:06:10

introspection happening over the

next several years.

And what do you

0:06:100:06:17

make of the response in the Arab

states and the Muslim world in

0:06:170:06:21

general? Is there a real commitment

to the Palestinian cause, or is it

0:06:210:06:26

just rhetorical? The Saudi US link

is strong under President Trump.

0:06:260:06:31

It's fair to say there is a

rhetorical commitment to the

0:06:310:06:36

Palestinian cause among Arab

leaders, but there are reasons why

0:06:360:06:39

they have to at least be seen to be

supportive of the Palestinians, and

0:06:390:06:46

that is because it's an issue that

resonates very deeply with Arab

0:06:460:06:51

people across the region, regardless

of sex or religion, and even beyond

0:06:510:06:57

the Arab world, as we have seen in

many capitals around the world. --

0:06:570:07:13

regardless of Qatar or religion.

They have to to at least be seen to

0:07:130:07:19

be serious on this issue, but

because their people care very much

0:07:190:07:27

about it, I think the premise of

your question is correct. They are

0:07:270:07:32

not going to sacrifice the

relationship with the United States,

0:07:320:07:38

or possibly whatever relations

particular states may have with

0:07:380:07:41

Israel.

Thank you for joining us.

Thank you.

0:07:410:07:47

The family of Nazanin

Zaghari-Ratcliffe says a court

0:07:470:07:49

appearance scheduled for today has

been postponed following a visit

0:07:490:07:51

to Iran by the British Foreign

Secretary, Boris Johnson.

0:07:510:07:53

But the court denies that

a trial was planned.

0:07:530:07:56

The British-Iranian woman is serving

a five-year jail sentence in Tehran.

0:07:560:07:59

Mr Johnson met the Iranian

President, Hassan Rouhani earlier

0:07:590:08:01

today where it's believed he pressed

for her release.

0:08:010:08:04

Our Diplomatic Correspondent

James Robbins reports.

0:08:040:08:12

Boris Johnson spent nearly an hour

with Iran's president.

0:08:120:08:14

That access itself

seen as a good sign as

0:08:140:08:17

improving relations.

0:08:170:08:18

The Foreign Office

says both sides spoke

0:08:180:08:19

forthrightly about obstacles

in the relationship

0:08:190:08:21

and the need to make progress.

0:08:210:08:24

Boris Johnson raised the case

of dual nationals in Iranian

0:08:240:08:26

prisons, including

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliff.

0:08:260:08:30

The Foreign Secretary met some

of her family in Tehran.

0:08:300:08:36

In London, her husband Richard

is much happier, showing me

0:08:360:08:39

pictures of his Iranian family,

and delighted by the fact she didn't

0:08:390:08:43

have to face a possible

court appearance.

0:08:430:08:46

He told me about the family

meeting with Boris Johnson.

0:08:460:08:49

The Foreign Secretary also met

with Nazanin's father

0:08:490:08:52

and had a long chat

with him, talked and said,

0:08:520:08:56

I have raised her case

with everyone I have met.

0:08:560:09:00

I'll keep worrying

and battling for her.

0:09:000:09:04

Don't worry, we will do what we can.

0:09:040:09:07

They came away pretty hopeful.

0:09:070:09:10

If there has been

progress, where might

0:09:100:09:13

it have been made?

0:09:130:09:15

The Foreign Secretary

has been careful to say

0:09:150:09:17

nothing publicly while in Iran.

0:09:170:09:19

But a Foreign Office

statement says the

0:09:190:09:22

two sides discussed the full range

of issues, including banking matters

0:09:220:09:24

and concerns about the consular

cases of dual nationals.

0:09:240:09:30

Those banking matters include two

major Iranian grievances.

0:09:300:09:34

One, that no UK bank will open

an account for Iran's

0:09:340:09:38

embassy in London,

0:09:380:09:40

fearful it could put them in trouble

with US authorities.

0:09:400:09:43

There are signs that

could be sorted soon.

0:09:430:09:45

Second, the Iranians

want Britain to pay

0:09:450:09:48

a long-standing debt of

around £400 million.

0:09:480:09:51

A way to do that without breaching

sanctions looks closer.

0:09:510:09:55

Both sides say these

issues are not linked

0:09:550:09:57

to prisoner releases,

but giving one side something

0:09:570:10:01

it wants often helps

the other to give in return.

0:10:010:10:07

One gift to Britain would be

the reunion of Nazanin

0:10:070:10:14

with her three-year-old daughter,

seen here just before her arrest

0:10:140:10:16

in April last year.

0:10:160:10:17

The family is feeling

much more positive.

0:10:170:10:19

The Foreign Office delegation

left Iran sensing both

0:10:190:10:21

sides wanted to resolve

the difficult issues

0:10:210:10:23

in the relationship.

0:10:230:10:33

Later in the programme we will be

hearing more from Richard Ratcliffe,

0:10:380:10:43

who came in and told me his hopes

going forward.

0:10:430:10:47

Heavy snowfall across much

of the UK is causing

0:10:470:10:49

disruption on the roads,

to air travel, and on the railways.

0:10:490:10:52

Hundreds of flights have been

cancelled or delayed

0:10:520:10:54

at a number of airports,

while some roads are described

0:10:540:10:56

as hazardous, with the police

warning motorists to travel

0:10:560:10:58

only if absolutely necessary.

0:10:580:10:59

Meteorologists say it's the heaviest

snowfall to hit the affected

0:10:590:11:02

areas in four years,

as Richard Lister reports.

0:11:020:11:05

Much of Britain looked

like a Christmas card today.

0:11:050:11:08

Scotland and northern England

had been expecting snow,

0:11:080:11:12

but this was Buckinghamshire,

and it wasn't pretty.

0:11:120:11:18

Breakdowns and blizzard conditions

on the M25 near Gerard's Cross

0:11:180:11:21

made for slow going.

0:11:210:11:25

On the A34 near Newbury - two stuck

lorries, and the southbound

0:11:250:11:29

carriageway had to be closed.

0:11:290:11:32

In Wales, some smaller communities

were cut off entirely and thousands

0:11:320:11:36

of people had lost power.

0:11:360:11:40

This is by far the worst

I have ever seen.

0:11:400:11:43

It's probably the worst snow

I've ever seen, to be honest.

0:11:430:11:46

It's about a foot deep.

0:11:470:11:51

In the Midlands, they had hoped

gritters would keep the roads safe,

0:11:510:11:54

but needed snowploughs in Redditch.

0:11:540:11:58

It's been a long day for breakdown

services like the RAC,

0:11:580:12:01

which is getting five

calls a minute.

0:12:010:12:05

I had problems starting it.

0:12:050:12:06

I tried starting it last

night and this morning.

0:12:060:12:11

Mark says everything he's dealt

with today has been weather-related.

0:12:110:12:16

Only travel if you have to.

0:12:160:12:18

If you are going to travel,

make sure you have a fully charged

0:12:180:12:22

phone and warm clothing in case

you get stuck for hours.

0:12:220:12:28

This car, at least, got going again.

0:12:280:12:32

This is one of an estimated 25,000

breakdowns across the UK today,

0:12:320:12:35

15% more than usual.

0:12:350:12:38

Everything from flat

batteries to people stuck

0:12:380:12:40

in their drives because of snow.

0:12:400:12:44

It's not just motorists who've

been having problems.

0:12:440:12:47

70 flights were cancelled

at Heathrow, and Luton and Stansted

0:12:470:12:50

had problems as well.

0:12:500:12:53

Unhappy passengers at

East Midlands Airport.

0:12:530:12:56

A bit frustrated.

0:12:560:12:59

They could have told

us when we checked in

0:12:590:13:02

that the flight was cancelled.

0:13:020:13:04

We've been waiting around

for six, seven hours.

0:13:040:13:14

A P&O ferry with 300 passengers

on board ran aground

0:13:170:13:19

in Calais due to high winds.

0:13:190:13:21

No one was hurt and it

was refloated, but this

0:13:210:13:23

was a day to stay at home.

0:13:230:13:25

Listen to me!

0:13:250:13:26

Where we live,

we never get any snow.

0:13:260:13:28

Just sleet.

0:13:280:13:29

I like snow because you can make

snow angels and snowmen,

0:13:290:13:32

and I find it really fun.

0:13:320:13:35

And maybe do some of this.

0:13:350:13:37

It's been a great day for snowmen,

sledging and snowballs,

0:13:370:13:40

but what looks like fun on Sunday

afternoon could look very different

0:13:400:13:44

on Monday morning at rush hour.

0:13:440:13:47

Gritters are out in force

as the roads ice up,

0:13:470:13:50

ready for a difficult day tomorrow.

0:13:500:13:59

Stay with us on BBC World News.

0:13:590:14:00

Still to come...

0:14:000:14:05

Why the winner of the Nobel Peace

Price believes the world could be

0:14:050:14:08

just a moment of panic away from

nuclear war.

0:14:080:14:14

The Prince and Princess of Wales are

to separate. A statement from

0:15:120:15:16

Buckingham Palace said the decision

had been reached amicably.

0:15:160:15:28

Protests continue against

President Trump's recognition

0:15:290:15:31

of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

0:15:310:15:34

The Israeli prime minister

says Palestinians have

0:15:340:15:36

to accept the decision

as a recognition of reality.

0:15:360:15:46

The British Foreign Minister,

Boris Johnson, has left Iran,

0:15:480:15:50

after pressing for the release

of imprisoned dual national

0:15:500:15:53

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

0:15:530:15:59

The British Prime Minister -- the

British Foreign Minister has left

0:15:590:16:06

Iran now without any agreement on

the release of Nazanin

0:16:060:16:10

Zaghari-Ratcliffe. I have been

speaking to Nazanin's husband about

0:16:100:16:14

what he felt about the meeting.

I

fear it has been a good weekend for

0:16:140:16:19

us. The Foreign Secretary was in

Tehran. We were worried because a

0:16:190:16:23

court case was due to happen

yesterday, and it didn't happen, and

0:16:230:16:27

it seemed to be as a consequence of

him being there and his

0:16:270:16:32

representations to a rainy

officials.

What does it mean, the

0:16:320:16:39

fact that the court case didn't

happen?

Formally, the court case was

0:16:390:16:45

postponed, so it could still happen.

She has been assessed by medical

0:16:450:16:52

conditions, we have heard, and that

she could be released on medical

0:16:520:16:56

grounds, but then we hear that she

is being accused of being a spy. We

0:16:560:17:04

have possibilities of good news and

bad news, but today we feel that the

0:17:040:17:09

possibility of good news is higher.

He was not able to meet Nazanin, but

0:17:090:17:13

he was able to meet her family, so

he was able to reassure them that

0:17:130:17:18

everything is done with regard to

her case. He was very clear that he

0:17:180:17:24

is doing all he can for her case,

and they came away much more

0:17:240:17:29

hopeful.

Did he go into specifics?

There's been talk of this huge sum

0:17:290:17:35

of money that Britain owes to Iran,

and that paying that will help.

He

0:17:350:17:40

didn't say that specifically. I am

going to meet with the Foreign

0:17:400:17:47

Secretary tomorrow or Tuesday for a

full debriefing. He is the Foreign

0:17:470:17:51

Secretary and there's lots of issues

between Iran and the UK, involving

0:17:510:17:55

bank accounts and all sorts of

things, and no doubt those will have

0:17:550:18:00

been discussed. My concern is

Nazanin. His job was to reassure us

0:18:000:18:05

that he is doing all he can.

So

Boris Johnson went to your in laws'

0:18:050:18:12

house?

No, he went to the ambassador

's residence. It was with her father

0:18:120:18:18

and her brother was there to

translate. Our daughter had to be

0:18:180:18:23

looked after by our granny.

You then

spoke to the family. Can you tell us

0:18:230:18:29

more about the meeting and what they

felt?

They felt quite hopeful. The

0:18:290:18:34

Foreign Secretary didn't give any

guarantees. He said, I can't promise

0:18:340:18:39

you the world, but I promise you I

am doing my best. They came away

0:18:390:18:44

certain that she was his priority.

He spent nearly an hour with

0:18:440:18:49

President Rouhani, but whether that

is the right part of the Iranians

0:18:490:18:53

regime and thethe internal politics

are very complicated.

One of the

0:18:530:19:03

good things about the visit is that

he went round lots of different

0:19:030:19:07

parts, meeting with the chair of the

National Security Council, with

0:19:070:19:12

people from Parliament, people from

the atomic agency. It wasn't just

0:19:120:19:16

the Foreign Ministry. So all of that

can help.

And you have spoken to

0:19:160:19:23

your wife today?

Yes. When I spoke

to her in previous times, she was

0:19:230:19:30

obviously quite distraught and we

were looking with trepidation at

0:19:300:19:33

this court case. So today, she was

just so relieved. Still looking to

0:19:330:19:39

me for reassurances as to whether

she would be home for Christmas.

0:19:390:19:44

She's in prison, which is not a

great place, but there was a lighter

0:19:440:19:48

tone to have voice.

Did she feel

upset that Boris Johnson wasn't able

0:19:480:19:52

to see her and has come home without

a deal?

When I spoke to her he

0:19:520:20:00

hadn't left. Obviously, we were

hoping he would be able to see her

0:20:000:20:03

but we were not expecting it. We

were dreading the court case, and we

0:20:030:20:09

didn't get that. If we had to choose

one thing that didn't happen today,

0:20:090:20:13

it would be no court case.

Do you

think she is coming home for

0:20:130:20:16

Christmas?

I think there is a good

chance. The Foreign Secretary, when

0:20:160:20:23

we met him a month ago, was clear

that he couldn't make any promises.

0:20:230:20:29

I have a reasonable hopes and it

feels I can see light at the end of

0:20:290:20:33

the tunnel.

Do you have faith that

Boris Johnson is the right person to

0:20:330:20:37

handle this, given his previous

error?

I was critical of his

0:20:370:20:43

comments before and the consequences

they had. The problem was his

0:20:430:20:46

comments were being used by the

judiciary, but that now seems to

0:20:460:20:51

have stopped. I asked him to go to

Iran, and he's done that. It feels

0:20:510:20:55

like he's on the case and doing what

he can, and that's all one can ask.

0:20:550:21:02

Richard Radcliffe, whose wife is in

Iran still. We will keep you updated

0:21:020:21:06

on that.

0:21:060:21:09

Let's get the latest sports news

now, with Gavin Ramjaun.

0:21:090:21:12

Hello.

0:21:120:21:13

It's only December -

but Manchester City look

0:21:130:21:15

like they've already got one hand

on the Premier League Trophy.

0:21:150:21:17

A 2-1 victory on Sunday afternoon,

against Manchester United

0:21:170:21:19

in the derby - has taken them

11 points clear of United now

0:21:190:21:22

at the top of the table.

0:21:230:21:24

Marcus Rashford

scored United's goal.

0:21:240:21:25

But strikes from David Silva

and Nicolas Otamendi earned City

0:21:250:21:28

a record 14th straight league win.

0:21:280:21:29

So - do the managers think the title

is done and dusted?

0:21:290:21:37

Impossible. Of course you have 11

points and you are so happy for

0:21:380:21:42

that, plus the goal difference, but

it is not yet. It's just in

0:21:420:21:47

December, so you have a lot of

things, a lot of games still to do.

0:21:470:21:52

It's important for our confidence,

of course.

Probably yes, but I think

0:21:520:21:58

everyone of us, Chelsea, Tottenham,

Liverpool, Arsenal, every of us with

0:21:580:22:08

the ambition that probably you feel

it a bit damaged because of the

0:22:080:22:15

distance to Manchester City, but I

think everybody is going to fight

0:22:150:22:19

for the points every match until

mathematically it's impossible.

0:22:190:22:27

Also in English Premier League -

Liverpool were held to a 1-1

0:22:270:22:30

draw by Everton, in

the Merseyside derby.

0:22:300:22:31

Mohammed Salah opened

the scoring for Liverpool.

0:22:310:22:33

Wayne Rooney got

Everton's equaliser.

0:22:330:22:34

Arsenal drew 1-1 away

at Southampton, thanks to

0:22:340:22:36

a late Olivier Giroud equaliser.

0:22:360:22:37

Elsewhere - in La Liga -

Barcelona remain top of the table.

0:22:370:22:40

They are 1-0 up at Villa Real in the

Late Kick Off there.

0:22:400:22:46

Atletico Madrid move into third,

jumping above city rivals Real.

0:22:460:22:49

Atletico beat Betis 1-0.

0:22:490:22:50

Malaga are off the foot

of the table - they beat

0:22:500:22:52

Real Sociedad 2-0.

0:22:520:22:53

In Italy - Napoli missed

the chance to go top again.

0:22:530:22:56

They were held to a 0-0 draw

at home to Fiorentina.

0:22:560:22:59

Roma stay fourth, after their

goalless draw with Chievo.

0:22:590:23:01

And in the late game -

AC Milan versus Bologna.

0:23:010:23:08

They are leading 2-1, AC Milan. They

are mid-table at the moment.

0:23:080:23:15

Dutch Eredivisie league leaders

PSV Eindhoven were beaten 3-0

0:23:150:23:17

by arch-rivals Ajax on Sunday.

0:23:170:23:18

David Neres opened the scoring.

0:23:180:23:19

Just three minutes later,

Lasse Schoene doubled Ajax's lead.

0:23:190:23:22

And Donny van de Beek

later made it 3-0.

0:23:220:23:30

PSV's lead over AZ Alkmaar has been

trimmed to five points.

0:23:300:23:35

Third placed Ajax are now seven

points adrift of PSV.

0:23:350:23:41

In the German Bundesliga -

Borussia Dortmund have sacked

0:23:410:23:44

Peter Bosz as head coach.

0:23:440:23:45

He was dismissed just hours

after Dortmund's 2-1 home defeat -

0:23:450:23:47

to relegation strugglers

Werder Bremen.

0:23:470:23:49

After holding a five-point

lead at the top of the

0:23:490:23:53

Bundesliga in September.

0:23:530:23:54

Dortmund have since dropped

to seventh, now 13 points behind

0:23:540:23:57

current leaders Bayern Munich

and have been knocked out

0:23:570:23:59

of the Champions League.

0:23:590:24:01

Bosz has been replaced

by Peter Stoeger, who himself

0:24:010:24:03

was fired from Cologne

last weekend.

0:24:030:24:06

The Joburg Open Golf -

will be decided on Monday

0:24:060:24:09

after play was abandoned

at the Randpark Golf Club,

0:24:090:24:11

due to to thunderstorms.

0:24:110:24:15

Overnight leader -

India's Shubankhar Sharma

0:24:150:24:17

continues to lead -

his advantage now four shots

0:24:170:24:19

with 11 holes to play.

0:24:190:24:21

He was only able to play seven shots

on Sunday and birdied two of them -

0:24:210:24:25

before play was suspended.

0:24:250:24:31

American skier Lindsey Vonn

was forced to miss Sunday's racing

0:24:310:24:41

at the World Cup in St Moritz

after compressing her spine

0:24:410:24:43

in the Super G on Saturday.

0:24:430:24:45

She said it was mainly

a precautionary measure.

0:24:450:24:47

Meanwhile Austria's Marcel Hirscher

got a record 14th podium

0:24:470:24:49

on the slopes in Val D'Isare.

0:24:490:24:50

He overcame the tricky

conditions to win the slalom.

0:24:500:24:53

It's his 47th World

Cup slalom victory.

0:24:530:24:56

And Ronnie O'Sullivan has won the UK

Snooker championship, beating Shaun

0:24:560:25:01

Murphy in the final. He made three

centuries during the match. 10-5 the

0:25:010:25:07

score, in what was a dominant

performance from the man known as

0:25:070:25:10

the rocket. The win equals the

record of six UK titles set by Steve

0:25:100:25:16

Davis.

0:25:160:25:18

And that's all the sport for now.

0:25:180:25:19

Venezuelans are voting

to choose mayors for more

0:25:190:25:21

than 300 towns and cities.

0:25:210:25:23

20 million people are eligible

to vote but turnout

0:25:230:25:25

is expected to remain low.

0:25:250:25:26

Major opposition parties

are boycotting the elections.

0:25:260:25:28

They allege the voting system

is rigged in favour of President

0:25:280:25:31

Nicolas Maduro's candidates.

0:25:310:25:41

The winner of this year's Nobel

Peace Prize has warned that the

0:25:460:25:49

world could be just a moment of

panic away from a nuclear war.

0:25:490:25:54

Beatrice Fihn was accepting the

award on the half of her
