with more than thirty people on board capsized on the river danube in the capital, budapest. at least seven people have been killed and more than a dozen are missing. gareth barlow has the latest. the incident happened late on wednesday evening on a popular so part of the river close to the hungarian parliament. local news reports say the boat, the mermaid, was the mermaid, carrying a group of south korean tourists when it collided with another vessel. they found the same boat on the danube river so they found the details in the little parts of the boat. all of the river is closed and more than 400 people working for the rescue. the south korean foreign ministry said a quick response team will be sent to budapest to assist with the investigation.
a huge rescue effort is under way, with boats, spotlights and radar scanning the river for several kilometres downstream. police and paramedics lined the riverbank as divers searched the water. child ren‘s ambulances ready on stand—by. a section of the danube, europe's second longest river, has been closed. the rescue workers are facing difficult conditions. the river is flooding, and strong winds and heavy rain are hampering the search. in the centre of budapest tonight, the search for those lost in the river continues but as a new day dawns, the search for the answers to what caused the disaster will get under way. gareth barlow, bbc news. israeli politicians have voted to dissolve parliament and hold a snap election, after the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu, failed to form a coalition. the september vote will be the second this year, an unprecedented event in israeli politics. here's our middle east correspondent tom bateman. mps m ps voted mps voted by margin to dissolve parliament, effectively sucking themselves from the job they were elected to just six weeks ago also
in this move comes after benjamin netanyahu in this move comes after benjamin neta nyahu had tried in this move comes after benjamin netanyahu had tried to hammer out an agreement between two sides of the coalition government he wanted to build. 0n the one side, ultraorthodox religious parties who opposed a move by the leader of a secular party, avigdor libermann, to d raft secular party, avigdor libermann, to draft more i'll men into the israeli army, a long—standing issue. mr netanyahu army, a long—standing issue. mr neta nyahu was unable army, a long—standing issue. mr netanyahu was unable to bridge that gap in the deadline for a coalition is sure to be formed. now one course of action could have been for the israeli president to ask an opposition mp to have a go, to see if they could form a coalition government. so he precipitated the situation where the israeli parliament then voted to dissolve itself, meaning there will be fresh elections in september. the first time there have been two elections
in one year. it does present a political failure for the israeli prime minister. he is facing corruption charges later this year, allegations he vehemently denies but there is a sense that his political rivals can feel the vulnerability. even looking to the post— netanyahu era, whenever that may come. a feeling that now is the moment for them to position themselves on particular issues that they feel attached to and say to the israeli public, they want to be the person whose can succeed israel's long—standing leader. let's brief you on some of the other stories making the news. the tornadoes battering the american midwest have now killed 38 people — the highest number in 5 years. twenty have been reported in kansas alone in the past 24 hours. pennsylvania was also hit. across the us there have been more than 300 tornadoes in the past 12 days.
a human rights watchdog has strongly criticised malta's authorities for failing to properly investigate the death of a prominent anti—corru ption journalist in 2017. daphne caruana galizia was killed when a car bomb detonated while she was driving. three suspects arrested 17 months ago have still not come to trial. lawyers for the wikileaks founder, julian assange, say he's been moved to the health ward of belmarsh prison in london, where he's serving a 50 week sentence for jumping bail. they say they have grave concerns about mr assange, who's lost weight dramatically since being jailed. he's due to appear in court later. research by scientists in france and spain has added to increasing evidence that eating lots of ultra—processed food could be linked to an early death. two studies monitored the impact on more than 100,000 people for up to ten years. those who ate the most ultra—processed foods suffered the worst heart problems and died earlier. scientists say more
research is needed. disney says it would be very difficult for it to continue to film in the us state of georgia if new restrictive abortion laws come into effect.television and film productions are responsible for tens of thousands ofjobs in the state and disney has shot a number of blockbuster movies there — including black panther and more from bbc‘s peter bowes. welcome to you, and as i said, a lot of companies do film in the state of georgia but disney is the first one to come out and say they will have to come out and say they will have to rethink filming of these laws passed. yes, the chief executive says he believes any of their staff wouldn't wa nt to believes any of their staff wouldn't want to work in the state of georgia if this law comes into effect at the beginning of next year. of course, there are likely to be legal challenges. it could go all the way to the us supreme court but he has said that he would want to respect the wishes of the company ‘s
employees. and in fact netflix have also said something similar, that they are also monitoring the situation during the likely legal challenges over the next few months. it would be stopping production but watching what happens. the reason these countries expect companies go to places like georgia is that they have been offered tax incentives to go there. for a long time, over recent yea rs, go there. for a long time, over recent years, these major companies moving out of california to states that offer tax incentives and therefore it is much cheaper to make their films therefore it is much cheaper to make theirfilms and therefore it is much cheaper to make their films and programmes. apologies to our viewers, the line they are not good enough quality. we couldn't quite hear but we will get plenty more on that story a little later. we will talk about it in the news review. chelsea are europa league winners for a second time. they beat london rivals arsenal 4—1 to lift the trophy in baku.
the build up to the match was marred by ticketing and travel difficulties for fans making the four—thousand kilometre journey from london to azerbaijan. sarah rainsford was at the stadium in baku. it's the arsenal fans that have been coming out of here, streaming out of the stadium first tonight. this isn't the result they came all the way to baku hoping for. you can see it on their faces — dejected, disappointed, angry, some of them, in fact, when we asked them about the result. now, it was an extremely long journey for a london derby, arsenal and chelsea facing off here in the olympic stadium in baku, almost 3,000 miles. for chelsea, obviously, it was worth it. this is victory. but what about the arsenal fans? hey, have you got a second? have you got have a second? yeah, i'm gutted, completely. i mean, it was expensive enough getting here, and to see my team play that shambolically is just ridiculous. was it worth coming
all this way for? no. for azerbaijan, hosting big events like this one is a big deal. this is a country that wants to showcase itself to the world. but that does bring a sometimes uncomfortable spotlight on things like human rights here, and the big armenian question — that conflict that meant that arsenal's armenian midfielder said he didn't feel safe to come here. for these fans, though, the big questions have really been about logistics. i've been on that train, that nearly killed me. 12 hours, tbilisi to baku. it's horrible. 12 hours nearly killed you. were you in third class? i put my life on the line for chelsea. it's brilliant. and, after a pretty complicated, long and expensive journey to get here, the fans now have an equally long journey home. sarah rainsford in baku — and of course we'll have a full roundup of sport later in the programme. the amount of time we spend online is growing,
but so are calls for tougher regulation — according to a uk government study. it found the average british adult spent 3.75 hours a day online last year. but 70% of adults said they would like tighter rules for sites such as facebook and instagram — up from 52% the previous year. with me is jane foley who's senior foreign exchange strategist at rabobank. a lot of us are worried about it. we can see in the statistics that we are more worried —— more worried about it now that we used to be. there have been a lot of headlines. there have been a lot of headlines. there is being a need for big providers to step up their own policing of this. many of us are more aware about what they can potentially do to protect us and what is quite interesting is, spam
emails. that's no particular surprise. but with children, we are more sensitive to that. what is quite interesting is that very significant reporters have identified potential harm. swearing and offensive language but there is more than that. some of them have been accusing. 51% of 12 to 15 —year—olds, it's massive. and as pa rents, —year—olds, it's massive. and as parents, some of us don't feel particularly well—equipped to control that because children are very savvy with our phones, they know their way around. more than their parents. it's very difficult to control and protect them. the nspcc have said we need tougher laws. we have seen some of those companies come out and say we are going to restrict certain things. instagram has said it won't show people self harming. issues around
dieting and eating disorders. you are right, as parents, it's a difficult area to navigate and something that many of us are concerned about. you got teenagers. i'm about to give my child his second phone, he is going to secondary school. forewarned is forearmed. as parents, we can but i think as parents, we need the big companies to remove some of these harmful contents. my kids are nearly i7 nearly 15 and i know from experience that my kids know what they're doing with our phones. i could not on my own possibly police all of the content they are looking it. it would be very reassuring if the large companies if it was removed. will be discussing this in
more detail of a bit later. stay with us on bbc news, still to come: chelsa thrash arsenal in the europa league final in azerbaijan — all the details in the sports briefing. the philippines is set to ship tons of canadian waste back to canada. in the biggest international sporting spectacle ever seen, up to 30 million people have taken part in sponsored athletic events to aid famine relief in africa. the first of what the makers of star wars hope will be thousands of queues started forming at 7:00am. taunting which led to scuffles, scuffles to fighting, fighting to full—scale riot, as the liverpool fans broke out of their area and into the juve ntus enclosure. the belgian police had lost control. the whole world will mourn the tragic death of mr nehru today. he was the father of the indian people from the day of independence. the oprah winfrey show comes to an end after 25 years and more than 4,500 episodes. the chat show has made her one of the richest people on the planet. geri halliwell, otherwise known as ginger spice, has announced she has
left the spice girls. i don't believe it! she's the one with the bounce, the go, the girl power. not geri. why? you're watching the briefing. 0ur headlines: rescue efforts in budapest as a cruise boat capsizes on the river danube. at least seven people are dead. entertainment giants disney warn they may not continue to film in the us state of georgia, all because of new abortion laws. the philippines is due to ship 69 containers full of rubbish back to canada. the disagreement started back in 2014, when the philippines found out canada had delivered household waste, rather than recyclable plastics. live now to our correspondent, howard johnson, in subic bay, where some of that rubbish is. howard. we are expecting this
container ship to arrive here shortly and then they will begin to put these are 69 containers in this port behind me onto the ship. it will take eight hours, they are saying, so it could happen at midnight that it will finally set sailfrom the midnight that it will finally set sail from the philippines to china, transshipment port, before it goes to canada and canada say they will dispose of the waste properly by the end ofjuly. this has been playing out really well here in the philippines, the president is popular as we saw in the midterm elections last month, duterte he got a landslide election, so we went to the seats of subic bay to speak to people to see what they think about this story. for six years, it has been too long. it is now their time to get their trash back. been too long. it is now their time to get their trash backlj been too long. it is now their time to get their trash back. i am happy about it, you know? because in the philippines, there is a lot of trash here already so we don't need someone's trash. i think president duterte hey did well on the decision
for taking back the garbage from canada because he is the only president who did that. this is a big issue here in southeast asia at the moment, it has been led by china first of all who introduced a ban on mixed plastics that began in 2018. displaced some 7 million tons of waste in the region and we have seen also that malaysia just yesterday we re also that malaysia just yesterday were talking about banning the import of waste and they want to send 3000 recyclable plastics back to the countries of origin, including the uk, and this is a debate which has opened up other issues here, for example single—use plastic. this country has a problem with that, buying small sachets of shampoo and soap rather than bigger packaging which leads to waste in the sea, we have seen this as one of the sea, we have seen this as one of the biggest polluters of the ocean here, so lots of debates have sprung up here, so lots of debates have sprung up by here, so lots of debates have sprung up by this bold action by the president and also the war of words,
let's see how it plays out in canada as far as whether they are alighting as far as whether they are alighting a fierce way that they are bringing this topic to the international stage. —— that they like the fierce way that this topic was brought to the international stage. and we will follow that rubbish as it progresses. now it's time to get all the latest from the bbc sports centre. hello, i'm gavin ramjaun, and this is your thursday sport briefing. chelsea are the europa league champions. they beat london rivals arsenal 4 goals to 1 in the final in baku. it was a comfortable win for maurizio sarri's side, sarri claiming a first trophy of his career, too. former arsenal player 0livier giroud got the first, pedro got their second. arsenal hit back through alex iwobi shortly after eden hazard scored the first of his two goals, in what he says could be his last game for chelsea. for sure, going to miss him for ever but it is going to be parts of the football.
but also, its part of football. some cycles start, some cycles finish, and a few good players now also with the opportunity to be eden one day. rafael nadal continued his strong start at the french open with another straight sets win. the defending champion beat german qualifier yannick maden. nadal is aiming to become the first player to win a grand slam singles title 12 times. he'll face belgium's david goffin in the third round. roger federer is also through after beating another german, 0scar 0tte. and in the women's draw, number two seed karolina pliskova took less than an hour to beat kristina kucova 6—2, 6—2. the czech, who won the italian 0pen earlier this month, is yet to win a grand slam. we're just hours away from the first match of the cricket world cup, where hosts england take on south africa at the 0val in london. defending champions australia, afghanistan, bangladesh, india, new zealand, pakistan, sri lanka and west indies also make up the 10—team competition. they'll all play each other
in a round—robin format, before the top four contest semi—finals. i don't know who to win. i want england to win, desperate for england to win, just because they're ranked number one in the world, and the way they've changed the dynamics of play. and having played in australia — i've played for the last four seasons up to last year in australia — and the way the aussies talk about the way that the english play one—day cricket, well, they're ticking all the boxes. game one of the nba finals takes place in toronto on thursday. the raptors host the golden state warriors. the warriors have won three of the last four finals but the raptors are in the hunt for their first, in their debut appearance. to be able to start, you know, here in toronto against a different opponent, in ourfifth in toronto against a different opponent, in our fifth straight finals, it creates a great edge for us. i like the energy we are coming in with. when you get to the point where you have made the finals and
you still have more to do so getting here doesn't, you know, do anything but get us here. we still want to try to win this. finally, have a look at this. because being able to throw in a straight line comes fairly naturally to most people, but not to this lady at a major league baseball match. the chicago white sox's employee of the month got to throw the first pitch, but her attempt went slightly awry. the photographer and his camera were fine. but she's maybe gotjust a bit of work to do on her technique. i tell you what, i wonder if she could do that again. perhaps not! you can get all the latest sports news at our website — that's bbc.com/sport. but from me, gavin ramjaun, and the rest of the sport team, that's your thursday sport briefing. thank you, gavin. we often hear about younger people embracing the latest technology, but could the older generation be the ones to benefit most from driverless cars? scientists think the cars of the future will help pensioners
be more independent and less isolated. jon kay has more. where would you like to go today? we would like to go to the picnic area, please. that would be nice, wouldn't it? yes. meyer and jeff are off for a drive. let's go! jenny starting. but without a driver. 0n the grounds of the retirement village they are testing a computer operated vehicle. this is amazing. it really is. because they do not know how much longer they would be able to drive, could this help them get out and socialise? this is the future. well, it is the future. 0h, socialise? this is the future. well, it is the future. oh, gosh, look we're it is the future. oh, gosh, look we're up to. sensors detect hazards. that was a shock stop. automatic braking then prevents accidents. was it scary? no, it wasn't, it wasn't, it scary? no, it wasn't, it wasn't,
it was exhilarating rather than scaring. did you trust it? yes, i did, completely, and i was secure, i have plenty of room, i was co mforta ble. have plenty of room, i was comfortable. very impressive. it could be years before these vehicles could be years before these vehicles could be years before these vehicles could be on the roads but the british team of scientists, psychologists and robotics experts say the pods could work now in enclosed private spaces. giving residents in homes like santa monica is more independence. it is cutting edge technology and making the future right now and we are privileged to have been a part of that and also, i am thinking of the future maybe i will actually benefit from one of these myself! when you are older? yes, kind of an insurance policy. jenny starting. i went for a ride with 88—year—old monica. turning right. you have made a new friend there. thank you! she is one
of 100 older people who have been consulted in the design of these pods. unable to drive, she thinks they have real potential. it can help us to be independent for as long as possible. turning left. a bit late with that. of course not all care homes will have the space 01’ all care homes will have the space or the money to have this kind of technology. but the developers are older people should be at the forefront of developing driverless ca rs. jon kay, bbc news, bristol. and tell me what you think about our talking point today. there is a new study that shows on usage is growing, perhaps no surprise there. so we want to know how much time you spend online, and worry you? my phone started telling me how much time i have been spending on it and it has surprised me and when you get that weekly update, i do think i have to try to bring it down. i do not always succeed! 0ne twit says i used to
read the morning paper on the way to work and on the way home, take photographs, have them developed and post them to friends and family and in roughly the same time i spend on my phone so a good argument that we are replacing what we did in different circumstances with now what we do on the phone. reading papers for example is one of them. also this one, talking specifically about how we are concerned about our children's usage and the fact that 50 1% say children's usage and the fact that 501% say —— 51% say they children's usage and the fact that 50 1% say —— 51% say they have children's usage and the fact that 501% say —— 51% say they have been a victim of bullying, between ages of 11 and 15, ian says usage will increase because smart phones are becoming more of a universal device. the question is can parents be educated to use their phones? many children underneath 14 reap —— break rules because apps will only allow people under ——of a certain year of
age and the children break that. we will be back more with the briefing. see you then. hello. lots of clout across the uk at the moment, you will have to wait until the weekend to see the best of the sunshine in the next few days and then we could see some really warm weather on the way for some —— cloud. pulling in air across the atla ntic cloud. pulling in air across the atlantic but it is coming to the south of the set of weather fronts, thatis south of the set of weather fronts, that is what will keep things cloudy for the next couple of days at least. heavy rain to come into the north—west too before the weather settles for saturday, allowing sunshine through and as well. today, lots of cloud. for the northern half of the uk, more in the way of rain. becoming increasingly persistent through the day, heavy at times of northern ireland, the south—west of scotla nd northern ireland, the south—west of scotland and the north—west of england. in the south commonly high ground you should see sunshine,
sunshine for the northern isles, breezy across—the—board however sunshine for the northern isles, breezy across—the—boa rd however and particularly gusty in the west. murky for many western coast and hills. the best of any sunshine, 23 in london, just 11 though in aberdeen. thursday night on into friday morning, or rain across the northern half of the uk. further south, hopefully the cloud will thin and makea south, hopefully the cloud will thin and make a little, starting to set us and make a little, starting to set us upfora and make a little, starting to set us up for a brighter day in southern areas on friday. by the end of the night so we could see the next batch of heavy rain waiting to move in to the north—west. but at least i'm old enough start to friday thanks to us sitting on the mild air and covering of cloud. 0n sitting on the mild air and covering of cloud. on friday, you can see the front draping itself across northern ireland and scotland, some really wet weather to come and i think for the south—west of scotland in particular. further south, the south—west of scotland in particular. furthersouth, hopefully some thinner cloud, more on the way of sunshine and temperatures pushing up of sunshine and temperatures pushing up into the mid— 20s possibly in sunspot. milderforaberdeen
up into the mid— 20s possibly in sunspot. milder for aberdeen but still degrading. i saturday, the high influence spreads further north, a woman to across—the—board and potentially temperatures up to 27 celsius in the south east of england but a very short lived heatwave because come sunday, the picture becomes more unsettled once again with showers becoming increasingly widespread across the uk. not all areas will see them but we're moving into a more unsettled regime so the temperature start to away, still a pleasant feel for sunday but turning cooler as we look at next week.
