Hello, this is David Austin with the BBC news.

Several thousand people have marched to a police station in Myanma's biggest city, Yangon,
demanding a quick resolution to a child rape case that sparked nationwide anger. Many believe there was a slow official response to the attack on the girl who was nearly three years old at a nursery in the capital Naypyitaw in May. On Wednesday, the police charged a suspect, who had already been arrested and released. Analysts say the case underscores the lack of trust in the authorities in Myanmar.

Representatives from the Afghan Taliban and the United States are resuming peace talks in Qatar after a one-day break on Friday. Our South Asia editor Jill McGivering reports. The bilateral talks are reaching a critical phases as both sides try to flesh out with details a framework they've already drafted. The focus is on plans for the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan and guarantees from the Taliban that the territory won't be used as a base for international terrorism. An agreement might allow the US to extricate itself from the conflict, but the proposals are far from an overall peace deal. Issues such as future power sharing, human rights and the role of the constitution would still be unresolved. Air strikes on rebel-held territory in northwestern Syria reported to have killed thirteen civilians.

In recent months, the Russian-backed Syrian military has stepped up its attacks on the region where the strongest forces' faction that used to be linked to Al Qaida. Our Middle East analyst is Alan Johnston. According to the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, both warplanes and helicopters targeted the village of Mhambil in Idlib province. There were three women and seven children among the dead. Another woman is said to have been killed in rocket fire on the edge of the town of Khan Sheikhun. A senior UN official has talked of being horrified by the Russian-backed Syrian government side's attacks on civilian areas. Hundreds of people have been killed and hundreds of thousands driven from their homes.

The former head of Britain's intelligence services, MI6 has warned that the country is going through a political crisis with deep divisions as it grapples with Brexit. John Sawers told the BBC that the UK's international reputation had been damaged and that current politicians and neither of the main parties seemed likely to be able to restore it. We are going through a sort of political nervous breakdown here in the UK. We have potential prime ministers being elected by the Conservative Party now, by in the shape of the leader of the opposition, who do not have the standing that we have become used to in our top leadership.
