Hello, I'm Chris Barrow with the BBC news.

Doctors linked to the opposition protest movement in Sudan say the number of people killed by the security forces this week has risen to more than one hundred. Bodies are still being discovered following an operation to crush pro-democracy protests. The head of Sudan's military council Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan has apologized and offered to resume negotiations with the opposition. Tomi Oladipo reports. Much of Khartoum is still on lockdown. Residents say they are too scared to go out because members of the dreaded paramilitary group RSF are roaming the streets. The people call them the janjaweed in reference to their foundations as a ruthless militia group notorious for atrocities against civilians in Darfur more than a decade ago. This week in the capital, their latest violence and victims have been documented in countless videos.

Queen Elizabeth has led commemorations in the English city of Portsmouth to mark seventy-five years since the D-Day landings. The mission to liberate Nazi-occupied Europe was the largest seaborne operation in history and changed the course of the Second World War. President Trump, President Macron of France and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel are among the world leaders attending the ceremony. More than three hundred veterans who are all over ninety years old are also there. The Queen paid tribute to their courage. When I attended the commemoration of the sixtieth anniversary of the D-Day landings, some thought it might be the last such event, but the wartime generation, my generation is resilient and I'm delighted to be with you in Portsmouth today. Earlier, sixteen countries issued a joint statement to mark the anniversary. It committed them to uphold the values of democracy, tolerance and the rule of law.

Prosecutors said Shoma was apparently radicalized in Dakar six years earlier and came to Australia with the sole intention of committing a murder inspired by the Islamic State group. She was initially housed with a different family but removed after she stabbed a mattress there apparently preparing for the attack.
