Hello, I'm Chris Barrow with the BBC news.
Saudi Arabia's crown prince Mohammed bin Salman says the attack on his country on Saturday posed a real test of the world's will to confront acts that threaten international stability. Our Middle East analyst Alan Johnston reports.
The Saudis are looking to rally the international community behind them in the aftermath of the attack on their oil facilities. The crown prince's remark is part of that effort, presenting what's happened is a challenge demanding a global response. The Saudis say they will soon produce evidence revealing Iran's involvement in the attack. The Iranians deny any responsibility for it. They've warned that if they are attacked, their response wouldn't be limited. They're signaling to the Saudis and their US allies that any possible military exchange would have far reaching consequences.
Saudi Arabia's new ambassador to Britain has told the BBC that the murder of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi is a stain on his whole country. Prince Khalid Bin Bandar Al Saud said an investigation into Mr. Khashoggi's death was continuing. He was killed by Saudi state agents in Istanbul last year, which Riyadh says was a rogue operation.
The European Parliament has voted to call for Britain to leave the EU with the deal six weeks before its scheduled departure next month. Here's our Europe correspondent Adam Fleming.
The European Parliament's call to avoid a no-deal Brexit was endorsed by a large but unsurprising majority of MEPs. Before-hand, they'd heard from the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, he said his meeting with Boris Johnson earlier this week left him with the impression no-deal was a real possibility. Mr. Juncker said he'd prioritize the unity of the EU suggesting he'll continue to support Ireland rather than siding with the UK to get a deal.
Unofficial results from Israel's second general election in five months indicate that the two main parties are deadlocked. With almost all votes counted, it appears that neither the Likud party of the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu nor the rival Blue and White Alliance has a clear path to forming a coalition government. From Jerusalem, here's Barbara Plett-Usher.
The election has left Israelis confused and uncertain. Racing for fractious coalition talks that will test Benjamin Netanyahu's political instincts. The veteran survivor of Israeli politics has suffered a blow. Benjamin Netanyahu wasn't able to muster the majority to form a government. If the exit polls are right, his Likud party may even have lost seats to the opposition. That leaves him fewer options to defend against possible indictments on corruption charges, but he's nowhere close to admitting defeat.
At least twenty-three children have died after a fire broke out at a boarding school in Liberia. More children are missing and afeared to have been killed. The blaze broke out at a boarding house attached to a mosque on the outskirts of the capital Monrovia.
