Hello, I'm Debbie Russ with the BBC News. The southern US state of Louisiana is being battered by a powerful tropical storm, bringing torrential rain and ferocious winds. Storm Barry lost some strength after coming ashore as a category one hurricane the first of the season, but millions of people are bracing themselves for potentially life-threatening flooding. Rear Admiral Paul Thomas is from the US Coast Guard. We are quite concerned about this storm. It remains a very dangerous storm, particularly with regard to the amount of water that could be dropped in those areas in an already full river basin. It's really important that people around those parts of Louisiana, in general, and even up into Arkansas and Tennessee, take this storm very seriously.
The Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has told his British counterpart that Tehran will continue its oil exports under any conditions. After a phone conversation with Jeremy Hunt, Mr. Zarif said an oil tanker seized by Britain off Gibraltar last week was headed to a legal destination. Mr. Hunt told Mr. Zarif that Britain might facilitate the release of the ship so long as it didn't go on to Syria. We had clear evidence that this tanker was heading for syria. If we get the guarantees that it is not gonna get to Syria, then we can resolve the situation following due process in the Gibraltarian courts. And that was the purpose of my phone call. And it was also, I think, encouraging to hear that from the Iranian perspective, they have no desire to escalate the situation, they want to resolve it as well.
A British newspaper has published more leaks from diplomatic cables in which the UK's former ambassador in Washington strongly criticized the Trump administration. Kim Darroch resigned following the publication of the first tranche of messages last week and after Boris Johnson, the front-runner to be the next British prime minister, refused to explicitly back him. Here is our diplomatic correspondent James Robbins. This weekend, the focus is on the work done jointly by Sir Kim and Mr. Johnson during his visit to Washington as foreign secretary in May last year. The aim was to try to talk the administration out of abandoning the nuclear deal with Iran. Sir Kim is quoted as reporting back to London that Mr. Trump's administration is set upon an act of diplomatic vandalism to spite his predecessor Barack Obama. But now Sir Kim has resigned as ambassador. Some of the sting has been taken out of these newly revealed assessments. Instead, the focus has shifted to a row over press freedom in Britain after the Metropolitan Police warned journalists not to publish any more leaked material. World news from the BBC.

大家好，我是黛比·罗斯，欢迎收听BBC新闻。一场强热带风暴登陆了美国南部路易斯安那州，带来了暴雨和强风 。飓风“巴里”在本季度第一次以一级飓风的身份登陆，之后强度有所减弱，但仍有数百万人正在为危险的洪水做准备 。以下是美国海岸警卫队海军少将保罗·托马斯的介绍 。我们很担心这场风暴 。它仍然是一场非常危险的风暴，特别是因为它有可能会在已经满溢的河流流域带来大量的降水 。重要的是，路易斯安那州附近的人们，甚至是阿肯色州和田纳西州的民众，都要认真对待这场风暴 。
伊朗外长穆罕默德·贾瓦德·扎里夫告诉英国外长，德黑兰当局将在任何情况下继续石油出口。扎里夫在与杰里米·亨特通话后表示，上周在直布罗陀海域被英国扣押的一艘油轮当时正驶向合法目的地 。亨特对扎里夫说，只要这艘船不前往叙利亚，英国可能会释放这艘船 。我们有明确的证据表明这艘油轮当时正驶向叙利亚 。如果我们得到保证它不会进入叙利亚，那么我们就可以按照直布罗陀法院的正当程序解决问题 。这就是我打电话的目的 。我认为，如果伊朗方面表示他们无意使局势升级，并且也想解决这个问题，那么这个结果也是令人鼓舞的 。
英国一家报纸公布了更多从外交电报中泄露的信息，其中英国前驻华盛顿大使强烈批评了特朗普政府。上周，第一批信息公布后，金·德里爵士克宣布辞职 。在此之前，英国下任首相的热门人选鲍里斯·约翰逊拒绝正面支持他 。以下是本台外交通讯员詹姆斯·罗宾斯的报道 。本周末曝光的重点是金爵士和约翰逊去年5月作为外交大臣访问华盛顿期间共同完成的工作 。其目的是试图说服美国政府不要放弃与伊朗的核协议 。报道援引金爵士向伦敦发回的报告，称特朗普政府决意破坏上任总统巴拉克·奥巴马建立的外交关系 。但现在，金爵士已辞去大使一职 。一些对特朗普政府的批评已经从这些新公布的评估中删除 。在伦敦警察厅警告记者不要再发表任何泄露的材料后，人们的注意力已转向英国的新闻自由 。BBC国际新闻 。
