now, the pope's visit symbolises by the us last year. it looks like the formal meeting between the two chief negotiators, their willingness to coexist. china's liu he and robert lighthizer for the us, the formal meeting is over. roger bannister became the first man they then went for a working dinner in washington, in the world to run a mile dc and it looks like that is over as well. in under four minutes. there is talk of a phone call between president trump and his chinese counterpart, xijinping, i don't have official confirmation but it looks like the working meeting, memories of victory as the ve celebrations the working dinner is done. reach their climax. there is talk of a call this night is dedicated between the two leaders, to everyone who believes to either sign off in a future of peace and freedom. on any agreement that's been reached or to agree that the tariffs are going ahead. both sides of stepped back and they can't do a deal so we are waiting to see what comes out of washington dc on this thursday evening. just paint a picture of what is at stake of the world's two biggest economies. this is bbc news, the latest headlines: the imf, meant to ensure global last—ditch talks are underway financial stability, as american and chinese negotiators says this poses a threat to the global economy. try to salvage a trade deal, because there is uncertainty just hours before the us is due and instability and all of that, to impose new tariffs it's not good, particularly if you are chinese or american businesses on china's goods.
earlier we spoke to peter petri. he is carl shapiro professor of international finance in the brandeis international business school. looking to sell to the united states i asked him what the sticking points were in the negotiations. the issues that have apparently been or looking to invest here in china but what america's top politician sees as a decades long addressed are very sticky ones, dispute essentially, subsidising their state—run entities, opening their markets enough to foreign companies for example, international including the americans copyrights rules have been strengthened, and they have been stealing intellectual property are not offering protection or china has committed here that foreigners investing to strengthening them. billions want, that is why china has committed to reducing president trump has gone down the possibility of the routes of tariffs and taxes, punishment ascent force technology transfers. early for chinese goods that are exported, to change china's behaviour, particularly on things like intellectual property. so a lot of what we wanted to do the chinese, there appears to have been negotiated have been significant changes, opening up certain parts of their economy but several issues remain to foreign investors. this is part of a longer trend, particularly on automotive, apparently open seeing moves to open up the financial sector and changes in and we are not exactly sure intellectual property. what they are china wants to do more, but as best as we can tell, its own businesses and innovators there is some issue but the key problem is really about whether subsidies had all about what china does to protect been sufficiently well documented, and to subsidise its state—run entities and also when it comes to an agreement, it's about enforcing any changes that the chinese would reduce them that china agrees to. for their large lots of promises. but in the end, they state—owned enterprises haven't come too much.
enforcement is the key and there is also still debate problem and that looks like where the dispute about what tariffs the us might apply if it turns out that china is not meeting the conditions that it has set. so this enforcement mechanism is at the moment. still appears to be a sticking point but there may be a couple of others. we are not exactly sure what the last problems are. for people like myself who were not economic specialists, can i ask you something lots of promises. but in the end, they about the kind of real—world impacts haven't come too much. of this on consumers? enforcement is the key problem and that looks like where the dispute one point in particular — surely tariffs are taxes paid by importers of foreign goods so tariffs imposed by the us on chinese goods will be paid by american companies, is at the moment. would presumably be passed on in higher prices to american consumers? that's right. now, that need not be entirely true let's get some of the day's other news. because it is possible the united states has seized a north korean cargo ship, that the chinese, knowing which it says was violating international sanctions. the justice department says that there are tariffs the vessel was being used to transport coal and heavy machinery. in another sign of rising tensions being imposed, might sell since february's failed summit, the products at a lower price
to the united states. north korea test—fired two but a recent study suggests short—range missiles. that is not happening on the tariffs shares in uber will begin trading on the new york stock that mr trump has impose in the past. exchange on friday, priced in particular, a federal reserve bank of new york study found that, in fact, consumers were paying not at forty—five dollars. just prices notjust higher than the old prices by the amount of the tariff but even more than that. that values the digital taxi app at more than $80 million. the pricing is lower that might be explained than some had expected. because companies, analysts say it's an attempt when they have a chance to change prices, to avoid the fate of rival they might change them by more taxi firm, lyft. its shares have fallen than required by the tariff. by about a quarter since they were floated in march. it might be happening the former brazilian because products other than the imported product are also president, michel temer, has handed himself in to the police a day after a court ordered his increasing the prices, return to prison. he's accused of corruption, given that the competition including taking millions of dollars in bribes from public contracts. from the imported products he was held for a few days at the beginning is less strict. of the investigations and then released. so the upshot is that, he denies all charges. as best as we can tell, president trump has welcomed last year's major league baseball the tariffs are being champions the boston red sox passed on to consumers. to the white house. in fact, maybe even more a number of latino is being passed on to consumers than the tariffs themselves. and african—american players stayed away. the team manager, alex cora, who's from puerto rico,
also boycotted the visit — citing the president's lack of support for the us territory when it was badly affected the scottish government is debating the idea by hurricane maria. of a universal basic income. everybody — regardless of wealth — in south africa, with nearly would get a lump sum of about $3100 two thirds of election results declared, the african a year. this, so the argument goes, would eliminate national congress is on course the stigma of poverty. to retain power. but the anc is heading for the worst it's already been tried in canada, performance in its 25 and the bbc‘s james cook has been years in government. to ontario, to learn more. and that's likely to make it harder luckily i was accepted... for president cyril ramaphosa to tackle corruption and fight poverty. jodi dean's daughter this report from ramzan karmali. has special needs she spends a small fortune on hospital parking, her husband is off work with an injury, and she says basic income changed her family's life. for us, it made a huge impact in our lives. when my husband went off work on sick leave, it was a life—changer. it kept the bills paid and it kept groceries coming. for most south africans, they all expected the african and without it, i don't know how national congress to win we would have survived. the election but the real question was by how much? what would you say to a critic it seems the ruling party hasn't of basic income who would say, been able to prevent a slide you know, i am paying my taxes, in its support but party officials why should i give you were putting on a brave face. what they would regard so we have a very solid as money for nothing? idea of the response helping somebody out of poverty is not a handout that we were going to get because you are able to give back from the electorate and so no disappointment, no surprises, when you are healthy,
we are where we thought we would be you're not able to give at this point in time. back when you're not. try and find a job when you cannot afford a hair cut, or clean clothes, or transportation to an interview. and despite looking like it has basic income can give people gained less than half the anc‘s those opportunities. vote, the main opposition party jodi lives in hamilton, a canadian city with a caledonian heritage. leader was still feeling optimistic. the two nations still have plenty in common. where industry once brought work and wealth, i've just looked at the initial projections, we are happy now the future is far less certain. that we will retain the western cape, we are very clear tens of thousands of people used about the fact that gauteng is still on a knife edge to be employed here in hamilton which is part of the work we've done in the steel industry. and i'm most grateful the fact that that number has dwindled we've built an organisation that dramatically, in part because of automation, leaving many people deep in poverty works for all south africans. and looking to the state for help. one key issue in this election was the economy. jodi and herfamily now unemployment currently stands at 27% feature in this exhibition, which is led to a rise which tells the stories in the popularity of a new party, of basic income recipients, taken by a photographer the economic freedom fighters. who was herself part of the trial. this is tim and he's a friend of mine in hamilton, it was founded by an expelled member and workplace injury means of the anc, julius malema. he has been calling he is unable to work. he said that he was able
to visit his family for the first time in years for a redistribution of wealth because of basic income. it was amazing, i learned and the expropriation of white land. a lot because, like, this looks unlikely, what the people were using money but his party still looks on course for was to eat healthy foods, for around a 10th of the vote. and not have to go to food banks, they were going back to school, we are quite happy with where moving into safer housing. we are now because for the whole day, we've been north but suddenly, last summer, of where we were sitting in 2014. all that changed. clearly, repairing an ailing economy the programme is not doing will be high on the list for mr ramaphosa, but when he took what it is intended to do overfrom his predecessor, and it is quite expensive and so we have decided jacob zuma, around two years ago, he vowed to crack down that we will wind on corruption, something many voters the programme down. will feel not enough has been done just yet. i will have more details at a later ramzan karmali, bbc news. with us now daniel de kadt, date on how we plan on doing that, associated professor but i want to assure ontarians at the university of who are on the pilot project right california merced with an expertise in south africa. now that we will do it ethically. the decision taken here in toronto to abandon the basic income trial was controversial, and the premier who introduced the pilot has this message for scotland... what you think is going on? it's i'd say, bravo, i think that's ha rd to what you think is going on? it's fantastic that scotland hard to know at this point. it seems pretty clear the anc is on a is going to pilot a basic income. downward directory. —— trajectory. my hope for you would be that you will be able to design a pilot and see it through
it doesn't look like it's too out of so you can get that evidence. the blue but what's surprising is we all need that. the blue but what's surprising is the downturn in turnout. it looks canada and scotland don'tjust have like almost 10% as people have voted murky weather in common. both countries are facing potentially profound economic this year which is quite shocking challenges which may yet lead to a radically redesigned state. over a 5— year election period. james cook, bbc news, this year which is quite shocking over a 5- year election period. the radical left in the centre—right hamilton, in ontario. seem to be on the rise. how significant would you say that is? in argentina, a congressman‘s the radical left certainly seem to aide has been shot dead be on the rise. the centre—right, i and the politician himself seriously injured. don't know. looks like they might the pair were walking in a square outside the national congress even lose a bit of vote share so it in buenos aires when they were attacked. looks like it might be stagnating a the motive for the mafia—style little bit. the rise of the eff hit, which was captured on camera, isn't clear. bill hayton reports. looks important but it's hard to know what there is going to be. 10% isa the argentine capital 7am, an mp and know what there is going to be. 10% is a lot of votes to get but it's not particularly useful in the national parliament. what's more a civil servant take their regular important is how they will be in the walk outside the congress building than from a part car several shots gauteng provincial legislature and some of the other provinces. it's a are fired. the civil servant miguel miserable statistic. 25 years after the end of apartheid, the strongest marcelo yadon is killed, the mp, single indicator of wealth and
education and general success in hector olivares, is shot. the life is still race. what other president's chances of sorting this attackers wait for a moment and then out? i don't think anyone president drive off. translation: they shot is going to be able to sort this out. cyril ramaphosa is a very capable leader and he seems to have with the principal target. even the anc had his back for now but what he can do about that is unclear. the problem is that lead to though they were able to motor that kind of statistic are deeply hector olivares they were not able structural. he is going to have to to do it. the dead man worked for a change a tremendous amount of things firm building electricity networks, about the economy and institutions to bring about change. the question the state in which the mp for me is whether that is going to be possible unless there is more represented. they reported to have set an apartment. the president has promised a full investigation into than a single party majority. well, why they were targeted. translation: julius malema and his party are unlikely to help in that? they are very unlikely. you might try to help i want to tell the argentine people that the city police force is in some way, in the way he is done already working with the federal with land distribution, offer olive police and we will go to the very a nswe i’s with land distribution, offer olive a nswers to with land distribution, offer olive answers to people who are supporting end to understand what happened and the eff. it doesn't look like those find the guilty. as the
olive branches worked in the investigation got under way, police election. but i'm sure he is going said they had arrested a relative of to keep trying. officer, thank you the owner of the car used by the very much. attackers. the wounded mp is in a critical condition in hospital and syrian government forces as yet there is no word on the are attacking the provinces of idlib — northern hama — gunmen and their motives. and western aleppo — the rebels' last we are often told that school days remaining strongholds. a takeover of some areas — were the best days of our lives by extreme islamist fighters — has led to the collapse — although not everyone agrees. of a recent ceasefire — stern teachers, terrible school as our middle east correspondent meals and boring lessons put many people off. quentin somerville reports. but in one school in central croatia — in the town of glina — they've tried a fairly unusual way to shake things up — as the bbc‘s tim allman explains. at first glance, glina secondary school looks just like any other with barrel bombs and air strikes, but things here are not bashar al—assad is clawing at the edges of syria's last rebel province. quite what they seem. this most indiscriminate of weapons has killed dozens the woman on the right in the last week alone. is the school principal, the young man on the left is also a deadly force has brought the school principal, the war back to life. albeit one day only. i albeit for one day only. , gone the danny here, the teachers have become pupils and the pupils have become teachers, both learning how gone the other half lives. the tactics and terror
reporter translation: did any are horribly familiar. of the real teachers skip classes? but the options for the three translation: two of the real million people in idlib have teachers did not show for class but everything else never been narrower. is going as planned. why weren't they there? orient hospital in kafranbel we still need to establish why. was one of many targeted. the aim of all this is to strengthen the relationship the sick and injured between children and staff. some youngsters took lessons, forced out into the open. others worked behind the scenes, and the real teachers got the chance for months, a deal between russia, to learn a few things. translation: the greatest value the regime, and its opponents turkey of the project is that we teachers are back in school, sitting as pupils for six or seven classes in a day. kept some kind of peace here. we all probably ask ourselves whether we can be focused on lessons the whole time. a couple of teachers had to have their mobile phones but the cracks are confiscated, but otherwise all went to plan. next year the hope is they will do beginning to show. it all over again and the rules of school will be turned upside. tim allman, bbc news. the al—hamdan family were asleep in their beds when their home was hit. they found the bodies of the children first. two—year—old khadija was the only one to survive. her father ali mohammed, her sister ghazal, and baby brother
there is more on all the news any on mohammed died alongside their mother. four more lives lost to a war which has killed more than 500,000 the bbc website. and you can get in touch with me syrians. khadija's grandfather tells us, and most of the team "my son ali never carried a weapon. 00:12:08,404 --> 2147483051:42:48,917 a fighter jet bombed 2147483051:42:48,917 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 and killed them. on twitter — i'm @bbc mike embley. thank you for watching. hello there. we've got a couple more showery days in the forecast, before things start to settle down during the weekend, as high pressure begins to build in. we should start to see temperatures rising, as well. in the short term, though, we've got this low pressure which is still influencing the weather across the country, and the weather fronts through central parts still generating some showers. so it does look like it's going to be a showery start through more central portions of the country this morning. a little bit of wintriness over the higher ground too, but for the rest of scotland, the north—east of england, it's going to be actually a cold start. out of town, could see a little bit of frost again, but less cold across southern areas. so through today, we will have some sunshine to start the day across the south and across the north—east. more cloud through central areas, with some showers from the word go,
and then showers are likely to develop elsewhere as the temperatures begin to rise in the afternoon. and some of these could be heavy, maybe thundery and slow—moving showers, ‘cause the winds will be lighter as well. but in the sunshine we could make 16 or 17 degrees in the south—east, and double—figure values elsewhere too. this area of low pressure moving into france could bring some wet weather to the channel islands, southern england through friday night. and then, into the weekend, high—pressure begins to establish itself. now, it will be quite a chilly start to the weekend, with the blue colours still lingering, but slowly we'll begin to import some warmer air from the near—continent from sunday onwards. so we could have a few showers around at the start of the weekend, before it starts to turn drier and starts to turn a little bit warmer. so let's have a look in a bit more detail, then, with saturday. it's a chilly start in light northerly winds. there will be plenty of sunshine around, but then showers will develop, most of them through central and eastern areas, and there will be the odd heavier one too. better chance of staying dry further west, closer to the area of high pressure, and in sunny spots we could make 17 celsius, but a milder day elsewhere. on into sunday, i think high—pressure is slap bang on top
of us, so it looks like it's going to be a largely dry day. could see a little bit of cloud bubbling up into the afternoon, with the odd isolated shower, but most places will be dry, and temperatures responding as well. 18 degrees across some of the warmest spots. high—pressure still with us again as we head on to the start of next week. moving a little bit further eastwards, so we'll be drawing some of this warmer airfrom france and from spain. so it's going to be a fairly cool start, going to have a little bit of mist and fog through the morning. that should fade away, and into the afternoon, widespread sunshine, as you can see here. and it's going to be warmer — temperatures 18 maybe 19 celsius, central scotland, and in towards the south and the south—west. and it stays fine throughout the week, but there are signs we start to pick up a north—easterly. it could turn a little bit cooler by the end of the week.
the headlines: negotiators for the world's two biggest economies, the us and china, are trying to salvage a trade deal — just hours before fresh american tariffs are due to come into force washington will more than double tariffs on billions of dollars of chinese goods. beijing has vowed to retaliate. talks will continue into friday. the anc is on course to retain power in south africa's general election. but after years of corruption scandals, the party looks to be heading for its worst performance in its 25 years in government. full results will be announced on saturday. in argentina, a congressman‘s aide has been shot dead right outside parliament — the politician himself, deputy hector olivares, was seriously wounded. the motive for the mafia—style hit, which was captured on camera, isn't yet clear. two years after the grenfell tower fire
