Breonna Taylor: Police officer charged but not over death - BBC News
A police officer has been charged over the narcotics raid that resulted in the fatal shooting of a black woman at her home in the US state of Kentucky. Breonna Taylor, 26, a hospital worker, was shot multiple times as officers stormed her home on 13 March. Brett Hankison has been charged, not with Ms Taylor's death, but with "wanton endangerment" for firing into a neighbour's apartment in Louisville. Two other officers who were involved have not been charged. Under Kentucky law, someone is guilty of wanton endangerment if they commit an act that shows "an extreme indifference to the value of human life". This lowest-level felony offence can come with a five-year sentence for each count. Mr Hankison was charged on three counts. #BBCOS #BBCOutsideSource Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

Pilot whales Tasmania: Almost 400 die in Australia's worst stranding - BBC News
About 380 whales have died in what is suspected to be Australia's largest stranding on record, officials say. Since Monday, hundreds of long-finned pilot whales have been found beached on Tasmania's west coast. Rescuers had managed to save 50 by late on Wednesday, and they were trying to help the remaining estimated 30 whales. Tasmanian government officials said the rescue effort would continue "as long as there are live animals". "While they're still alive and in water, there's still hope for them - but as time goes on they do become more fatigued," said Nic Deka, regional manager for Tasmania's Parks and Wildlife Service. He added the focus would now also shift to removing the hundreds of carcasses scattered along the coast. A clean-up plan is still being worked out - in the past carcasses have been buried on the shore or dragged out to open sea. #BBCOS #BBCOutsideSource Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

Brazil's Amazon: Fireman 'saving what's not burnt' - BBC News
Brazil's Amazon is experiencing another year of forest fires. It’s not just the Amazon that’s gone up in flames – the world’s biggest wetlands, the Pantanal, home to rare species like the jaguar, has seen its worst fires in more than two decades. The fires are linked to growing deforestation - trees are felled and then the land is burned as a cheap and easy way to clear the area for agricultural use. The state of Para is the worst-affected area when it comes to deforestation The Brazilian government this year brought in some early measures to curb the number of fires. It imposed a 120-day ban on fires and deployed the army to badly-hit areas. But, at the same time, President Bolsonaro has declared the fires a lie. His vice-president also told the BBC that the forest was not burning. South America correspondent Katy Watson accompanied Corporal Carlos Rodrigues of Pará State Fire Department as he rushed to put out blazes.

Covid: Boris Johnson calls for 'resolve' to fight coronavirus over winter - BBC News
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called on the public to "summon the discipline and the resolve" to follow the new coronavirus rules announced on Tuesday. In a television broadcast to the country he warned the government may go further if people do not stick to them. New measures have been brought in across the UK, with Mr Johnson warning rules could last for up to six months. In England, rules on face coverings were expanded and the number of people allowed at weddings has been halved. Pubs, restaurants and other hospitality venues will have to close by 22:00 BST, while the fines for breaking the rules will also increase to £200 on the first offence. Hospitality venues will also have to close early in Scotland and Wales - but Scotland has gone further, banning people from visiting other people's homes. It comes as the number of UK cases rose by 4,926 on Tuesday, government figures showed, with deaths increasing by 37. Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

Covid restrictions: PM sets out new hospitality and face covering rules - BBC News
The UK has reached "a perilous turning point", Prime Minister Boris Johnson said, as he set out a raft of new coronavirus restrictions for England which could last for up to six months. Shop staff will have to wear face masks and weddings will be limited to a maximum of 15 people, under new rules. Penalties for breaking laws on gatherings, wearing masks and for businesses will increase. He also warned "significantly greater restrictions" could come if necessary. Following a meeting of the Cobra emergency committee this morning with the leaders of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, Mr Johnson said "similar steps" would be taken across the UK. "We always knew that while we might have driven the virus into retreat, the prospect of a second wave was real. I'm sorry to say that, as in Spain and France and many other countries, we've reached a perilous turning point," he said. Mr Johnson told the House of Commons he would provide police and local authorities with extra funding to enforce the regulations and the option to draw on military support.

Mozambique: Why did these men shoot a naked woman dead? - BBC News
A growing insurgency has been ravaging large areas of northern Mozambique. Both the Islamist insurgents, who have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group, and the Mozambican army have been accused of atrocities. In one of the latest videos from the region a group of armed men can be seen murdering a naked woman - but, where exactly did it happen and who are they? The BBC's Andrew Harding has been speaking to researchers from Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, and also to open source investigators like @il_kanguru (who prefers to keep his identity private), to try to establish what exactly happened. The Mozambique army says it does not agree "with any barbaric act that substantiates the violation of human rights". The government has promised to investigate the video, but also suggested the footage has been doctored. The insurgents are known to have impersonated soldiers by wearing their uniforms in the past.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg death: Trump to nominate woman to fill Supreme Court seat - BBC News
US President Donald Trump has said he will next week nominate a woman to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, escalating a political row over her successor. Ginsburg, 87, died on Friday, just weeks before the presidential election. Mr Trump's Democratic rival, Joe Biden, insists the decision on her replacement should wait until after the vote. The ideological balance of the nine-member court is crucial to its rulings on the most important issues in US law. But President Trump has vowed to swear in Ginsburg's successor "without delay", a move that has infuriated Democrats, who fear Republicans will vote to lock in a decades-long conservative majority on the country's highest court. "I will be putting forth a nominee next week. It will be a woman," Mr Trump said at a campaign rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Saturday. "I think it should be a woman because I actually like women much more than men." #BBCOS #BBCOutsideSource Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

FinCEN Files: The Israeli settlers Chelsea boss Abramovich helped fund - BBC News
An investigation by BBC News Arabic has found that Russian oligarch, Roman Abramovich, controls companies that have donated $100m to an Israeli settler organisation. Elad operates in occupied East Jerusalem. By allowing settlement activity in the area Israel is considered to be in breach of international law. Israel disputes this view. Analysis of the bank documents leaked to Buzzfeed News who shared them with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and the BBC has revealed that Chelsea football club owner, Abramovich, is the biggest single donor to the organisation. Elad also runs the City of David and other archaeological sites, visited by a million tourists each year in Jerusalem. There are arguments that Israel is breaking international law by allowing exploratory archaeological digs to be carried out in occupied land. Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

Singapore rolls out Covid tracing tokens - BBC News
Singapore is distributing thousands of devices that can track where a person has been and who they have interacted with. The small bluetooth device is meant for those who do not own smartphones and cannot use a contact tracing app that was previously rolled out by the Singapore government. While there are some concerns over about data protection, authorities say the token helps vulnerable groups to feel safer when out and about. For instance, the token helps elderly people keep a a precise record of their whereabouts. Video by Suranjana Tewari Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

Belarus protests: Women try to unmask those detaining protesters - BBC News
In Belarus, it's now almost six weeks since the election in which President Alexander Lukashenko claimed a much disputed victory. Daily demonstrations against him have followed and so too have clashes with security forces. More than 1,000 people have been detained with many of them emerging with stories of being tortured. Most of the detentions are carried out by masked men wearing clothes that give no indication of who they are and what organisation they belong to . Fed up with the constant harassment, this week female protesters started taking matters into their own hands trying to identify the men and make them accountable for their actions.

Zimbabwe to return land seized from foreign farmers - BBC News
Zimbabwe has offered to return land to foreign nationals whose farms were seized under a controversial government programme two decades ago. Thousands of white farmers were forced from their land, often violently, between 2000 and 2001. The seizures were meant to redress colonial-era land grabs but contributed to the country's economic decline and ruined relations with the West. A separate compensation scheme has been launched for local white farmers. They have not been offered land, but the government last month promised them $3.5bn (£2.6bn) for seized infrastructure.

Humpback whales enter crocodile river 'in Australian first' - BBC News
Australian officials say they will try to guide a humpback whale out of a crocodile-infested river in the Northern Territory after it got lost and ended up 30km (18.5 miles) inland. The whale and others were on an annual sea migration when some of them "took a wrong turn", experts believe. Two whales were later able to swim out of the river, but at least one remains. It's the first known instance of a whale being found in crocodile territory so far inland in Australia. Given its estimated 16m (52 ft) length, the humpback is considered unlikely to be disturbed by crocodiles. But that risk could escalate if the whale were to become stranded in the shallow waters, officials said on Monday. #BBCOS #BBCOutsideSource Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

Breonna Taylor: Louisville to pay family $12m over police shooting - BBC News
Officials in Louisville, Kentucky have agreed to pay $12m (£9.3m) to the family of Breonna Taylor, a black woman who was killed in her home by police. Taylor was 26 when she was shot at least five times and killed on 13 March during a mistaken drugs raid. Her name has featured prominently in anti-racism protests in recent months. Lonita Baker, a lawyer for Taylor's family, called the settlement just one "layer" in the effort to seek justice, and praised new police reforms. "Justice for Breonna is multi-layered," said Ms Baker at a press conference on Tuesday alongside Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. She called the agreement "tremendous, but only a portion" of what the family hopes for, including the arrest of the officers involved in her death. #BBCOS #BBCOutsideSource Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

Trump: I don't think science knows about climate - BBC News
US President Donald Trump has dismissed concerns over climate change on a visit to fire-ravaged California, telling an official "I don't think science knows" about global warming. "It'll start getting cooler, you just watch," Mr Trump said after he was urged not to "ignore the science". Blazes in several states have burned vast areas of land and killed at least 36 people since early August. Scientists say human activities have driven up global temperatures. But Mr Trump has blamed poor forest management for the fires that have burned almost 2 million hectares (5 million acres) of land in California, Oregon and Washington state.

Is there life floating in the clouds of Venus? - BBC News
It's an extraordinary possibility - the idea that living organisms are floating in the clouds of Planet Venus. But this is what astronomers are now considering after detecting a gas in the atmosphere they can't explain. That gas is phosphine - a molecule made up of one phosphorus atom and three hydrogen atoms. On Earth, phosphine is associated with life, with microbes living in the guts of animals like penguins, or in oxygen-poor environments such as swamps. For sure, you can make it industrially, but there are no factories on Venus; and there are certainly no penguins. So why is this gas there, 50km up from the planet's surface? Prof Jane Greaves, from Cardiff University, UK and colleagues are asking just this question. #BBCOS #BBCOutsideSource Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

Coronavirus: Beijing's back and forth lockdown - BBC News
An increase in the number of cases of Covid-19 has led to fresh restrictions in some parts of the UK. But how do other countries cope? Much of China has returned to a more normal pace of life after authorities began relaxing coronavirus lockdowns in late spring. But as many cities have found out, loosened containment measures can be short-lived. In June, Beijing experienced a sudden surge of cases linked to a wholesale market, leading authorities to immediately quarantine close contacts, lockdown nearby areas, and mass test residents. The upside is that with surprise outbreaks like this cropping up across the country, officials have fine-tuned their emergency response. But the downside is that until there’s a vaccine widely administered, there will be a continued risk of repeat lockdowns. The BBC’s China Correspondent Stephen McDonell explores the new ‘normal’ in Beijing, which has gone in and out of lockdown.
