11:30 pm
this is castle for a second time. this is bbc world news. the headlines. a declassified us intelligence report says saudi arabia's crown prince, mohammed bin salman, approved the murder of the exiled journalist jamal khashoggi in istanbul in 2018. the saudi authorities say those responsible acted independently, and have since been punished. it also said the report contained inaccurate nigeria's president has warned the kidnappers of more than three hundred schoolgirls that his government won't give in to blackmail. describing those behind the latest abductions as bandits, he said they should not interpret the government's restraint as a sign of weakness. there's further evidence that covid vaccines may help prevent the spread of virus. a study of healthcare workers at a hospital in cambridge in england found that a single dose of the pfizer—biontech vaccine dramatically cuts the risk of getting the virus without symptoms. britain's supreme court has ruled that shamima begum, a woman who left to join the islamic state group in syria does not have the right to return to the uk.

11:35 pm
capacity to lend to about 3000 individuals a month under this scheme. it is the daily telegraph reminding us that it is a project thatis reminding us that it is a project that is really dear to the prime minister borisjohnson's heart. he wants to encourage people to get on that real estate latter, to own their first home and turn generation rent into generation buy. so we will have to see if indeed enough people can have enough money because so many people particularly young people are finding it really, really hard, some having to move back home. it isjust the hard, some having to move back home. it is just the pandemic has wreaked havoc with people's prospect. no wonder vendors are also concerned about negative equity. let’s turn to the front page of the garden, two stories, let's start with the supreme court ruling, giles. ,, , ., ., ,

11:38 pm
get a fair hearing that she could only instruct your lawyers and get a fair hearing not by being in a camp, quitea fair hearing not by being in a camp, quite a dangerous one in syria, but actually being back here in the uk. what is interesting is this really would have had huge implications had not gone this way for at least 150 other cases. so i think priti patel and the government will be very pleased, it is clearly a win for the government. we will say with the guardian, a question tojust continue with that. guardian, a question to 'ust continue with that.�* guardian, a question to 'ust continue with that. ~ ., ., ~' continue with that. who do you think one here even _ continue with that. who do you think one here even though _ continue with that. who do you think one here even though a _ continue with that. who do you think one here even though a us - continue with that. who do you think one here even though a us report, i one here even though a us report, say a report has said that the crown prince of saudi arabia to approve the killing ofjamal khashoggi?, giles. i think either way you cut it, it is incredibly damaging for saudi arabia. it it, it is incredibly damaging for saudi arabia.— saudi arabia. it is a public relations _ saudi arabia. it is a public relations disaster. - saudi arabia. it is a public relations disaster. the - saudi arabia. it is a public relations disaster. the usj saudi arabia. it is a public - relations disaster. the us has released — relations disaster. the us has released this report which is incredibly interesting and marks a radical—

11:41 pm
like saudi arabia, clearly sanctioned all the way up to the top. a very interesting, very significant, very public move, very different presidency byjoe biden and unsurprisingly, publishing this declassified report now and trying to soften the blow, reminding yes about diplomacy and decades—old alliance with that call to the man who is allegedly the leader, king salman. i understand that president biden will only talk to king salman and will not talk to the crown prince and that is again to establish a reset, come up every different relationship. what else falls out from that will be interesting to see visited the fight against extremism, vis—a—vis the nuclear deal that president biden is trying to revive with iran and many other things besides. and i haven't

11:47 pm
referred to for stash lasted for four, lasted forsix. it referred to for stash lasted for four, lasted for six. it was the one uppermost in alex salmond's mind by referring to the first minister but he fell short of actually asking her and saying she should resign. he is and saying she should resign. he is a very wily politician as is nicola sturgeon. so it will be, we will see. we will see what comes out of next wednesday, very clearly in the same way that alex salmond who adopted a very calm, measured tone, had one short problem because he had chest infections and there was a brief pause but was otherwise five hours and a0 minutes of testimony answering all kinds of either hostile or friendly questions. we will see how nicola sturgeon does. what is interesting about the daily telegraph is the other angle and one talking about the budget requests of which was rishi sunak, the chancellor who is openly going to

use the budget to underline the economic benefits of the union, a sweetness notjust economic benefits of the union, a sweetness not just for scotland economic benefits of the union, a sweetness notjust for scotland but also for wales and northern ireland to improve transport links we are told and speed up regeneration. we will see what the detail is on that. can't wait! it is coming wednesday. the daily mirror, the daily star covering prince harry, the same story, slightly different angle on the french of the mirror, —— on the front of the daily mirror. what you make of that and also in the title mcdavid star? i think the mirror focuses on the queen— think the mirror focuses on the queen saying that she is fine with this but— queen saying that she is fine with this but please uphold the values of the family. i think the star takes a more _ the family. i think the star takes a more specific to oracle mocking tone towards _ more specific to oracle mocking tone towards harry and meghan. i think this discrepancy of harry and meghan pleading _ this discrepancy of harry and meghan pleading for their privacy but yet

in the other game, benetton lost at home to connacht. cricet now and following england's shocking two—day test defeat to india, coach chris silverwood says they haven't officially complained to the icc about the pitch. england were beaten on a surface in ahmedabad which some have suggested wasn't fit for test cricket. silverwood accepts that england were outplayed but says he'll be discussing the challenging conditions with his captain, joe root ahead of the final test next week. joe and i will sit down and have a conversation about the rest of it and see where we go with it because certainly we have to accept that we do have to get better on these pitches. we have to accept that there's places we could have improved. you look at the first innings, we had an opportunity there to maybe score more runs. and then the next time i would hope we would pounce on the opportunity and obviously make the best use of the pitch when it was fresh. but at this moment in time, i've not really got a lot to add at the moment on the subject

of the pitch. now, mark selby is a three—time world snooker champion, but he was subjected to one of the heaviest defeats of his career this afternoon at the players�* championship. john higgins beat him by six frames to nil in today's quarter final, and remarkably selby only managed to pot three balls during the entire match — scoring just seven points. higgins said it was as close to perfect as he could ever have played. he goes into the semi—finals to play kyren wilson. the netherlands�* nyck de vrees has won the opening race of the formula e season in saudi arabia. the sport's first night—race wasn't a good one for british drivers with sam bird and alex lynn taking each other out. it was de vrees�* first victory in formula e. 0liver rowland was the highest placed briton in sixth. you can watch the second race of the season tomorrow live on the bbc. ireland's sam bennett took his second win of the uae tour as he claimed the sixth stage in dubai. britain's adam yates

remains in second place, 35 seconds behind tour de france champion and race leader tadej pogacar with just one stage to go. there's much more on the bbc sport website including the latest from the wgc golf in florida. and that's all the sport for now. hello, i haven't got the best weather memory but i would hazard a guess that this is going to be one of the quieter weather weekends of the year so far. that's no bad thing. barely any rain out there, some occasional sunshine, fairly chilly at night. frost, fog a possibility, but it is all very quiet with high pressure right across us, just one weak weather front moving into that area of high pressure and thatjust lingers with a bit of cloud as we go through the weekend, barely any rain left with it by saturday morning but the cloud will have kept temperatures up overnight and into the morning through parts of scotland and northern ireland. it's eastern scotland, more especially in england
11:58 pm
and wales with the frost, maybe down to —a or —5 in the coldest parts of southern england in the countryside, a few fog patches, parts of wales, west midlands and south west england could be gradually clearing. and still maybe a bit of light rain to parts of northern ireland and southern scotland but that will tend to fizzle out and bring just a bit more cloud further south into parts of northern england during the day. elsewhere, well, there will be some areas of cloud around but there will be sunny spells, too and temperatures to several degrees above the average for the end of february. still that strip of thicker cloud across parts of northern england and northern ireland, the odd spot of drizzle perhaps overnight and into sunday. away from that will be some areas of cloud, some clear spells, a few fog patches around, but not widely as clear as friday night and into saturday morning, so that means the frost isn't going to be as widespread. so just pockets of frost on sunday morning, some fog patches gradually clearing. still from that decaying weather front, a strip of thicker cloud from northern england into northern ireland, there could be a stray shower though
11:59 pm
the vast majority will have a drier day again with some cloud but also some sunny spells. and for the most part winds are light, quite breezy in north west scotland and windier towards the south coast of england into south west england and south wales on sunday where it's likely to feel a little bit cooler and generally temperatures are just a degree or two down on sunday. now, there is a greater chance of more widespread mist and fog as monday begins and it will make for a colder day especially on monday where that fails to clear. but high pressure's still around for much if not all of next week. just a little weather disturbance running up across western parts on tuesday may bring a few showers, but that'll be the extent of it. and after briefly colder at the start of the week, temperatures head up again before it turns a bit colder again later in the week.
