as it marks 22 years since the british handed it back to china. and sir david attenborough joins kylie and the cure on the final day of the glastonbury festival. this is bbc world news, it's news day. good morning. it's midnight in london, and 8:00am in seoul where about 50 kilometres to the north of here, president trump made history by becoming the first sitting us president to cross into north korea. mr trump and kimjung—un posed for handshakes before talking for nearly an hour in the heavily fortified demilitarised zone. it's the two leaders‘ first meeting since a summit between them collapsed four months ago. our correspondent nick bryant has this report "meet me at the dmz," said the president.
his impromptu invitation on twitter to the north korean leader, like a diplomatic form of online dating. donald trump was savouring this moment, a smile of satisfaction as his choreography came together. because the chance of this brief encounter had kim jong—un almost skipping down the steps. and from the lips of this brutal dictator came almost starry—eyed words of welcome, delivered in english by his translator. this place is the 38th parallel, the line that divides the korean peninsula, a threshold no american president has ever crossed. i thank you as well. you're the first us president to cross the border. so this time, it wasn't a handshake that made history, but a footstep. donald trump leaving his security
detail behind and striding out alone into what, for decades, has been enemy territory, a country that less than two years ago he threatened to totally destroy. his visit lasted just over a minute, more than enough time, his critics will say, to legitimise this totalitarian regime with one of the worst human—rights records on the planet. but that didn't seem to trouble the president, who has formed an improbable friendship with a tyrant he used to ridicule as little rocket man. stepping across that line was a great honour, a lot of progress has been made, a lot of friendships have been made, and this has been in particular a great friendship, so i just want to thank you. that was very quick notice, and i want to thank you. there were chuckles as well from south koreans
who watched on tv, and looks of utter disbelief generations here have lived with the threat of annihilation from the north. in their sit—down meeting, kimjong—un praised mr trump, saying his visit was proof of a willingness to eliminate the unfortunate past and open a new future. and the president delivered another invitation, to visit him at the white house. donald trump's unorthodox diplomacy has certainly reduced tensions here, but it hasn't stopped the north koreans from expanding their nuclear arsenal. this friendship has produced smiles, handshakes, photo opportunities, but not the supposed goal of us policy — the denuclearisation of the korean peninsula. he ended his trip with a speech to us troops, staged to look more like a campaign rally. another made—for—television moment, but who would have thought that "make america great again" would also elevate north korea? nick bryant, bbc news, seoul.
lots of photo opportunity but what has been achieved? we will be back in seoul later in the programme. let's take a look at some of the day's other news: local media in sudan is reporting that at least seven people have been killed and more than 180 injured in mass protests across the country. tens of thousands of people returned to the streets to demand civilian rule. police fired teargas into the crowd in the capital, khartoum. the protests were the largest since a deadly raid by security forces three weeks ago. translation: well, in the circumstances we see here. we are worried. the first thing is our children. we cannot let them live through what we have seen. we want them to live in peace and serenity. we wa nt them to live in peace and serenity. we want the country to be safe, without fire, without killing. also making news today: european union leaders have suspended the summit that's set to choose who will take the top eu
jobs following last month's euro elections. among the positions up for grabs is that of european commission president, which is currently held byjean claude juncker. but with the clock ticking donald tusk says he needs more time to talk to leaders individually. a new top team needs to be in place before meps take their seats in july. in cricket, england has reignited their world cup campaign defeating india by 31 runs, at edgbaston. india still need to win one of their next two games to go through to the semi finals. there'll be much more on that story coming up in sport today in about half an hour's time. this footage is of an indian air force jet suffering engine failure shortly after take off. it's because of an apparent collision with a flock of birds. the pilot released the aircraft's fuel tanks and bomb pods in an effort to avoid a crash. he's been praised for averting a major disaster.
returning to our top story, president trump has made history by becoming the first sitting us president to cross into north korea. with me is andray abrahamian from stanford university's shorenstein asia—pacific research center. thank you forjoining us. we have already had north korean estate media reporting about this. it is quite a big response. how will it be received by the north korean public? it will be received extremely well. after the collapse of hanoi, has been political pressure in the system and when there is uncertainty and instability of the top it gets socialised downwards so people have been very stressed out in the last few months. political study sessions have got more intense. more demands for people to profess loyalty and
fine mistakes in others. it has become a pressure cooker. if there is clarity now between north korea and the us in terms of policy, it will be good for the people of pyongyang and the rest of the country. critics saying this was just a gigantic photo opportunity. it was certainly a photo opportunity. the president, as we know it likes media attention and he is very good at getting it but it is more than that. the symbolism of what he did was necessary to unlock the frozen process that had really settled into a kind of a stasis after hanoi. the north korean had not been communicating for the past couple of months and it looks like there was no easy way to restart talks. by giving this gesture, i think donald trump unlocked that process. you think donald trump unlocked that process. you were think donald trump unlocked that process. you were with us during the hanoi summit injanuary and that failure caused issues in north
korea. we will never know what they spoke about for 50 minutes but, if you were to speculate, by agreeing to restart that negotiations, what did they discuss exactly? the americans in hanover were really looking for the north koreans to offer a technical wright or at least aspects of a road mate was denuclearisation. the north koreans did not seem to have that ready at that point and i think now chairman kim must‘ve said to president trump, ok, kim must‘ve said to president trump, 0k, we're ready to discuss this. i do not think we will a working level talks unless the north koreans are ready to do that. the americans needed to come up with some sort of symbolic gesture to start this and north korea needed to say we are ready on the technical side as well. a lot of pressure on president trump and kimjong—un a lot of pressure on president trump and kim jong—un but we a lot of pressure on president trump and kimjong—un but we cannot ignore the roles that china and south korea
played. it is easier to understand the south korean role. a much more open society and president moon jae—in is very keen for progress between the us and north korea and he helped again to broker a meeting, as it did with singapore into thousand i8. as it did with singapore into thousand 18. donald trump cancelled that at the last minute and it took moonjae—in slipping into reviver that summit. he created a platform and donald trump and kimjong—un recognise that and brought him in for a freeway handshake and i thought that was a good recognition of the role he played. china is a bit tougher to understand. xi jinping and kimjong—un had a summit barely a week ago. it is clear that china does not want to be left out andi china does not want to be left out and i suspect that maybe they saw movement between the us and north korea on the horizon and they wanted to make sure interests were met. fascinating historic moment to
witness. let's now turn our attention to another big story we are monitoring in asia. more demontrations are expected today in hong kong against a controversial extradition bill which would make it easier to send suspects to mainland china for trial. there's always a pro—democracy march on july the ist, the anniversary of the handover of hong kong to china by the british, but it could well be bigger this year. mass protests earlier this month led to the extradition bill being suspended. today activists will call for its complete withdrawal and protest against alleged police brutality at the demonstration last month. 0ur correspondent karishma vaswani is live for us in hong kong. just in the last hour or so, where we are right now, we are expecting over there the official flag raising ceremony and then an unofficial flag raising ceremony not too far away, in fact. what we have seen is a number of pro—democracy protesters dressed in their unofficial black
uniform, black t—shirts, black caps and masks as well, a real sense of tension in the seated today. even on the way here, we did see some police. heavy security expected to be deployed in certain parts of the city. at the heart is the controversial extradition bill. it has been suspended but the government here, in particular the chief executive carrie lam, expected to make a speech today. it will be her first public appearance since june 18. beyond all this is a growing dissatisfaction and anger amongst many inaudible. apologist, we seem to have lost contact. of course, we will try to get back to her later and also in our next addition. but that was a correspondent in hong kong.
the sun has set on the final day of the glastonbury festival. over 175,000 people enjoyed performances from acts like the cure, the grime artist, stormzy, and pop—superstar, kylie minogue. this was the first time kylie minogue performed at the festival since she had to pull out 1a years ago due to cancer. it wasn't all music, there was a also a suprise appearance by the natural historian sir david attenborough. the bbc‘s lizo mzimba was among the crowds. this year is the first time glastonbury has taken action against single—use plastics. no longer selling water in plastic bottles and banning many other plastic items. no surprise then that the festival's environmentally—aware audience gave a huge reception to sir david attenborough, the man who inspired the plastics ban with an episode of blue planet ii. it was one in which we showed
what plastic has done to the creatures that live in the ocean. cheering. but of course, the main way people willjudge the success of the festival is through its music. kylie minogue drew a massive audience for herfirst ever full glastonbury set. # can't get you out of my head... # i came in like a wrecking ball... a successful glastonbury debut too for miley cyrus. # yesterday, felt so old, felt like i could die... while the cure closed the festival with a record—equalling fourth headlining slot. lizo mzimba, bbc news, glastonbury. the interesting thing is, it did not
rain at all. we lost communications earlier. you are in the middle of a fascinating insight. ring us up—to—date on what we can expect. you can start seeing the number of documentary — mac pro documentary protesters heading to the unofficial flag raising that they are setting up flag raising that they are setting up to protest against what they see is an erosion of the democratic values. joining me is tim summers again. what is —— what do you think beijing is thinking?” again. what is —— what do you think beijing is thinking? i think they would be worried about what they have seen. a vice minister and public security was quoted as saying that hong kong was a political risk. i think they will be concerned that
things might continue to spiral out of control. they want the government to get a grip. speaking of the government, carrie lam has been under real pressure because of this and it seems like a massive misjudgment, miscalculation, on her part. this will be her first public appearance since thatjune 18 press conference. what are you expecting her to say? i don't think she will say anything particularly new today. she will probably point to many of the other things her administration is trying to do to try and send some reassuring messages about continuing to develop the economy and deal with livelihood issues. ithink to develop the economy and deal with livelihood issues. i think the government feel they have made pretty clear that this bill is not going to go any further but i mean, what we are seeing is a sort of ongoing political tussle tween people in hong kong and those people who are coming out to protest. and then behind that, the central
government in beijing. and if you look at this tussle, as you put it, it seems to many people in hong kong i have spoken to that ageing keeps pushing harder and harder into the identity of people here is eventually going to be submerged into mainland china. is that what you feel is driving the protests? 0h i think there is a bit of pushback in both directions. the number of things the central government has wa nted things the central government has wanted to push on to hong kong over the last 22 years, going back to 2003 and the national security legislation, in many of those cases, the pushback from people in hong kong has been pretty strong. the extradition bill that sparked these most extradition bill that sparked these m ost rece nt extradition bill that sparked these most recent protests actually seems to have been initiated by the hong kong government rather than beijing. again, we see a big pushback. there is quite significant constraints on beijing and the hong kong government cosmic ability to shape hong kong politics in society. —— hong kong government cosmic ability. —— hong
kong's. much more coming up on the programme. we will be in new york where hundreds of people joined the pride party 50 years after the rights that sparked the modern gay rights that sparked the modern gay rights movement. china marked its first day of rule in hong kong with a series of spectacular celebrations. a huge firework display was held in the former colony. the chinese president, jiang zemin, said unification was the start of a new era for hong kong. the world's first clone has been produced of an adult mammal. scientists in scotland have produced a sheep called dolly that was cloned in a laboratory using a cell of another sheep. for the first time in 20 years, russian and american spacecraft have docked in orbit at the start of
a new era of cooperation in space. challenger powered past the bishop rock lighthouse at almost 50 knots, shattering a record that had stood for 34 years. and there was no hiding the sheer elation of richard branson and his crew. this is newsday on the bbc. i'm mariko 0i in seoul. i'm kasia madera in london. our top stories. north korea has described the latest meeting between kimjong—un and donald trump as i. - - hong kong is braced for more protests, as it marks twenty two years, since the british handed it back to china.
let's look at how south korea has been seeing the meeting between donald trump and kim jong—un. been seeing the meeting between donald trump and kimjong—un. that moment when he became the first sitting us president to enter north korea. alongside kim jong—un, sitting us president to enter north korea. alongside kimjong—un, making the first —— front page was not this newspaper has dedicated seven pages on this story. of course, there are criticisms that this was just a photo opportunity. south korean media is talking about how president moon who has been praised for his effort that he is focusing too much on this north korean issue and not tackling other issues like the economy. i can also tell you that the north korean main newspaper has now reported with eager pictures on the front page of that historic summitand the front page of that historic summit and historic meeting, i should say. as we know, north korean media usually don't talk about these meetings until much later so it was a very fast response from the north
korean state media as well. that is the korean newspapers. what are the other had —— newspapers focusing on? many other papers are also focussing on the trump kim meeting. singapore's straits times says that although the ‘historic handshake has been dismissed as theatrics', it may actually lead to the re—starting of talks with north korea. the japan times is also headlining this meeting, but the international edition is focussing on whaling. saying a fleet of ships will set sail on monday, despite the international controversy. and the independent features the glastonbury music festival on its front page. the paper celebrates kylie minogue's long overdue performance which, as we already mentioned, was cancelled 1a years ago because the australian singer was diagnosed with breast cancer.
japan is about to resume hunting whales for profit, in defiance of international criticism. its last commercial hunt was in 1986, butjapan has never really stopped whaling — instead it's been carrying out what it says are research missions — which catch hundreds of whales annually. but japan has now withdrawn from the international whaling commission — the iwc — which banned hunting, and will send out its first whaling fleet on monday. with more, here's david campanale. japanese whaling ships at work. as a target is identified, and explosive harpoon is fired that penetrates deep into the whale, killing the animal either on impact or the subsequent struggle. claws are released and embed themselves deep into the whale cosmic body. there is no ships like this one i said by the japanese authorities to be carrying out commercial research critics say
this is just out commercial research critics say this isjust a cover so japan out commercial research critics say this is just a cover so japan could hunt whales for food. as the meat from the whales can end up for sale. 0ne restaurant has been serving it up. translation: whale is a healthy protein with high protein and low calories. a flotilla of ships are expected to set sail. the hunt will be confined to japanese territorial waters and the country's exclusive economic zone. save the whales now! but even so, japan has faced a firestorm of criticism from antiwhaling countries and these environmentalists in london say interest in eating the animal is falling. i don't think there is any domestic market for whale meat. like
norway and iceland, japan argues hunting and eating wales is part of its culture — make whales they say its culture — make whales they say it is not just its culture — make whales they say it is notjust about its culture — make whales they say it is not just about sustainability but the inhumanity of killing such majestic animals. new york has been holding a huge rally to celebrate lgbt diversity, 50 years on from the stonewall riots that started the movement. 0rganisers are predicting a turnout of a 150,000 people, with hundreds of thousands more lining the streets to watch. 0ur lgbt correspondent ben hunte is in new york and told me more about the atmosphere there. it is quite amazing, to be honest. this year is their biggest one yet. there are estimated to be between four and there are estimated to be between fourand 6 there are estimated to be between four and 6 million on new york street celebrating pride. it is also worth noting that it is a bit of a
duel of pride is happening right now. you had one which has been the main new york city pride which has been big corporations, huge floats. lots of rainbows. there has also been a separate pride which has been by reclaim pride and they are trying to get back to the basics of it. marching, home—made banners and things like that. a bit of a contrast of brides today. how well was the smaller one attended. —— prides. earlier this week, i spoke to reclaim pride and they said they are expecting a few thousand people to be present but honestly, we don't know the estimations of how many people whether but it was a lot better attended and we were expecting and there were so many people as part of that much. they had the marching bands, all sorts of different things. a lot bigger than anyone was expecting. interesting. i am
interesting. iam kasia interesting. i am kasia madera interesting. iam kasia madera in london. and i am mariko 0i insole. thank you so much for watching newsday. ——in seoul. uk forecasts coming up in the moment but first of all, we will look at what has been an incredible week in europe. with the newjune temporary records that in all of these countries, most impressively in france where the new record of gra nts france where the new record of grants beat the old record by five celsius. that extreme heat wave is now beginning to come to an end because we have cooler and fresher airday by because we have cooler and fresher air day by day, working and across these areas of europe, moderating these areas of europe, moderating the temperatures significantly. it will come as a relief, i am sure, too many in europe. here in the uk, we have had guys like this over the course of the weekend was broken cloud, spells of sunshine and more of the same to come in the week ahead was often the weather is going
to dry with sunshine and the sunshine is going to feel warm. there will be rain at times across the north—west of the uk and indeed if you are heading outside over the next three hours, there is a risk of seeing some rain in scotland, a few showers for northern ireland, northern england and perhaps the northern england and perhaps the north of wales as well. 0therwise, the further south you go, the drier the further south you go, the drier the weather is. it is certainly not going to be a cold start of the day. temperatures 11— 1a degrees first ring. looking at the weather picture in more detailfor ring. looking at the weather picture in more detail for monday. ring. looking at the weather picture in more detailfor monday. we have the cqu —— seclusion pushing southwards. —— first thing. scotland is seeing plenty of showers through the day and if you will get across northern ireland and into northern england and north wales is the day goes by full stop south of this area, for southern areas, southern counties, the weather should stay dry with well broken cloud and some fairly lengthy spells of sunshine around. that is why we will see some of the highest temperature towards the south and east, temperatures into the low 20s. a little on the
cool side for the far north of scotland. another sign of summer is the fact that wimbledon starts today and its going to be a dry day with some sunshine. temperatures into the low 20s. similarweather, some sunshine. temperatures into the low 20s. similar weather, actually, lasting throughout the week although perhaps getting a little bit warmer towards the end of the week. for tuesday, weatherwise, fewer showers and what showers that are around will be across the north—west of the country. generally more in the way of sunshine for most areas and temperatures generally high—teens to low 20s for many of us and still a little on the cool side for northern scotland. later on in the week, cloud will thicken across the part of scotla nd cloud will thicken across the part of scotland with outbreaks of rain for a time. as you can see, for much of the time, the weather will be dry and bright for many areas. across england and wales, it looks like it will be a largely dry week with some sunshine. tablet is running into the low— mid 20s, feeling warm in that 00:28:56,390 --> 2147483051:51:13,461 july sunny weather. that is your 2147483051:51:13,461 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 weather.
