hello, i'm kasia madera, this is outside source. england is about to take on denmark in the euros semifinal, and there's huge excitement. kick—off at wembley is in an hour. 60,000 fans are there, most of them english. danish fans are watching in copehagen. their team has had a fairy tale run since christian eriksen�*s shock collapse. the team's goalkeeper insists they can stop football from coming home to england. has it ever been home? i don't know, have you ever won it? in �*66, it was home. was that not the world cup? these english fans would disagree.
7:01 pm
despite the odds, a victory tonight would give england theirfirst ticket to the final of a major tournament since 1966. the winner will take on italy in the final in london on sunday. a state of emergency has been declared in haiti after the country's president was shot dead at his home. we need a lot more information, but it's very worrisome about the state of haiti. and the evergiven, the giant cargo ship that blocked the suez canal back in march, is finally leaving egyptian waters after a compensation deal was reached. it's the euro 2020 semifinals — england are taking on denmark at wembley stadium in london. kick—off is in an hour. england are hoping to make it into their first major final
7:02 pm
since 1966, while denmark hope to continue theirfairy tale run to the final. the winner will face italy on sunday in the final. this is the scene outside the stadium. 60,000 fans are expected to attend. england fans will hugely outnumber those cheering on the danes. denmark has been allcoated 8000 seats for danish supporters living in the uk, but fans have been prevented from travelling from denmark to london due to coronavirus restrictions. ben brown is outside the ground for us. where the atmosphere must be electric. �* ., , where the atmosphere must be electric. �* ., , ., electric. and actually all day thousands — electric. and actually all day thousands of _ electric. and actually all day thousands of england - electric. and actually all day thousands of england fans l electric. and actually all day . thousands of england fans have electric. and actually all day - thousands of england fans have been pouring into wrigley stadium, ever since this morning, hours ago when we arrived here. an hour to kick off
7:03 pm
now and is he said there will be about 60,000 fans in the stadium. the vast majority of them england fans so it is going to be a real cauldron of noise and that is going to boost the england team, no doubt about it. this is really home advantage for them. they have other advantages as well in a tournament with a team not conceding a single goal so far. so what is it going to be? if they can beat denmark tonight, then they will have italy on sunday and that would be england's first major tournament final since, yes, you guessed it 1966. denmark have actually won the european shipping at one to four backin european shipping at one to four back in 92 but england have never wanted. they won the world cup in 66 but no other major tournament. let's get the thoughts of alex howell from bbc sport who is here with me overlooking wembley stadium as the fans continue to stream in and we have the team news now. how are england going to light up? jaden

7:08 pm
them to this semifinal. they have some ardent support from their fans, as lucy williamson reports from copenhagen. "danish dynamite", some are calling it. this nation has proved before that it can come from nowhere to win the championship. it did exactly that in 1992. it means a lot. i know my parents have been talking about the last time we won it, or the only time we won it, in 1992. so, i think even now, when we just got to the semifinal, this will be something that we are going to talk about for the next many years. back then, denmark won the tournament without their top player, a challenge that's all too familiar to the team today. christian eriksen collapsed from cardiac arrestjust minutes into the first game. "let's do it for christian" is now a mantra here. denmark's star player could still help them win tonight without ever setting foot on the pitch. lots of people here told us they often backed england when it wasn't
7:09 pm
playing their own national side. "playing at wembley means england will feel the support," one said, "but they'll feel the pressure, too." i always celebrate for england. every tournament, i really hope for english win. and every time, they disappoint me so much. so, tonight, i also hope they will disappoint me a little bit because then denmark will go to the final. mike is supporting england from here in copenhagen. his wife and children are supporting the other side. just alone at the moment. i trying to find some english fans| in copenhagen, just to bond a bit and then hopefully we can win the match tonight. _ euro 2020 has breached the banks of football here and filled this nation's soul. the underdogs who reached the semifinal by working as a team, and theirfans who dream of more. lucy williamson, bbc news, copenhagen. and there's been fighting talk
7:10 pm
from the danish team. here's the goalkeeper kasper schmeichel, asked about the idea of "football coming home" to england. what would it mean to you guys to stop it coming home tomorrow night? has it ever been home? i don't know, have you ever won it? in �*66, it was home. well, was that not the world cup? yeah, exactly, but i'm saying the whole thing about a national tournament finally coming home, finally the actual success this country craves. what would it mean to you to stop that coming home? to be honest, i haven't given any thought to what it would mean to stop england more than what it would do for denmark. to be honest, i've focused very little on england national team. i think ithinka i think a few england fans will disagree with that. 50 minutes' time to kick off. morten glivad is the biographer of the coach.

7:14 pm
but thank you so much. the biographer of the manager of the danish team talking to us alive. good to get your opinion and your prediction as well. in the uk alone, its estimated 25 million people will tune in to watch from home or in pubs and bars. and with that many people watching, there's going to be a lot of beer being drunk either in celebration or commiseration. the british beer and pub association predicts that punters will purchase around 6.8 million pints of beer over the two—hour match. that's 50,000 pints of beer a minute, not including people drinking other beverages or drinking at home. that is an awful lot of beer. chi chi izundu is at the london fan zone, where i'm sure many pints are already being bought.

fans owns in london, thank you so much. a really excited crowd there and what is it, 45 minutes to kick off? we will be back with you throughout the course of the evening, i'm sure. lots more coverage on our website and a lot of build up as well and lot of analysis, too. let's turn to haiti now, where there's a state of emergency following the assassination of the president. this is presidentjovenel moise. his killing has plunged what was already a precarious political situation into crisis. interim prime minister claudejoseph says the president was killed in an attack on his home in the capital port—au—prince. unidentified gunmen stormed his private residence in petion—ville in the early hours of the morning. his wife was also injured. 53—year—old jovenel moise took office in february 2017
7:18 pm
after two elections, and when his five—year term actually began is a matter of dispute. the opposition said his term should have ended in february of this year, but mr moise insisted he still had one more year to serve. the killing comes days after mr moise named a new prime minister. ariel henry was the seventh person mr moise had appointed to the post since taking offce. mr henry, however, still hadn't been sworn in when the president was killed. there's now considerable confusion about who is in charge. the interim prime minister went on national television to declare the state of emergency. translation: in strict - accordance with article 149 of the constitution, i have presided over
7:19 pm
an extraordinary council of ministers, where we decided to declare a nationwide state of siege. i ask the population to keep calm. during his time in power, jovenel moise had faced accusations of corruption. he was also challenged by waves of often violent anti—government protests, as here in 2019, while gang violence and kidnappings surged. this is what president biden had to say in response to reporters' questions about haiti a little while ago. what's your reaction, mr president, to the haitian president being assassinated 7 we need a lot more information, but it's very worrisome about the state of haiti. "very worrisome," the president said there. the assassination has drawn condemnation from neighbouring caribbean and latin american countries. on twitter, the president of dominican republic, luis abinader, said...
7:20 pm
"this crime attacks the democratic order of haiti and the region." jamaica's prime minister andrew holness tweeted that... let's speak to rose delaney from bbc mundo, who is following developments from miami. you are following to filaments from miami. bring us up—to—date and where are we with this? you miami. bring us up-to-date and where are we with this?— are we with this? you are right, it is very confusing _ are we with this? you are right, it is very confusing but _ are we with this? you are right, it is very confusing but so _ are we with this? you are right, it is very confusing but so far - are we with this? you are right, it is very confusing but so far we - are we with this? you are right, it is very confusing but so far we do | is very confusing but so far we do know that a group of foreign armed individuals who were said to be speaking english and spanish were in haiti. haitian creole and french is spoken there. they entered into president moise's private residence and mortally wounded the first lady, who has now been transferred to a hospital in miami. currently being

7:24 pm
of the busiest shipping routes around the world and held up billions of dollars worth of trade. so, how did the evergiven's story unfold? passing to the suez canal, the 400—metre—long vessel got stuck sideways across the waterway. it was carrying more than 18,000 containers. hundreds of ships queued up waiting for the congestion to be cleared over the following six days, all the eyes were on the rescue mission. social media was flooded with interactions from different parts of the world. people just shared their thoughts about how to dislodge the ship. there was this small digger that inspired many memes. finally, and after a lot of hard work, the ship was re—floated, but then the egyptian authorities held the evergiven and its crew
7:25 pm
members on a court order pending a financial settlement. initially they asked for nearly $1 billion in compensation to cover lost revenues and reputation damage. the ship's insurers found these claims totally unsubstantiated. later on, this figure was reduced by nearly a half. so far, we do not know why the evergiven ran aground. investigations were carried out, but results have not been announced yet. the release of this ultra—large vessel is definitely good news, not only for the companies with goods on board, but also for the crew members who did not know for how long they could have waited here. sally there as the ship finally heads off, making its way. 35 minutes before kick—off between england and denmark and this is the scene live as fans are making their
7:26 pm
way into wembley stadium to watch this historic game. just 35 minutes to and lots more coming up shortly. hello. wednesday brought us a bit of a mixed day weather wise and there was some sunshine and thundershowers to have been slowly easing over recent hours. this was a scene in worcestershire early on with the big shower clouds around there with light surface water around as well. over the next few days we keep a mix of sunshine and scattered showers and i think by tomorrow the showers will be fewer and not as heavy as they have been today. a bit of a ridge of higher pressure trying to build into more of a low pressure not far away as they still going to be dominating our weather. to the remainder of the evening and overnight the showers gradually easing away with one or two lingering three parts of the midlands and eastern england and scotland and be the odd rumble of
7:27 pm
thunder over the next few hours of the time we get to thursday morning most places looking dry. clear spells, variable cloud inhibitors 10-14 spells, variable cloud inhibitors 10—14 agrees with or two missed patches around first thing thursday. for the day tomorrow it will brighten up quickly across england and wales and will be more sentient under was on wednesday stuff you are showers but as things warm up we will begin to seem more showers cropping up and if you do get one it's going to be quite heavy and potentially slow moving with some hail and thunder possible. for scotland and northern ireland a bit cloudier here stretching to the northwest with the odd spot of drizzle and most was is looking dry with the overtures for most at 17-23 with the overtures for most at 17—23 and a bit coolerfor with the overtures for most at 17—23 and a bit cooler for the north of scotland underneath that cloud. into thursday evening the daytime showers will gradually start to fade away and it will be hit or miss with most places staying dry overnight and on into friday as well. heading towards the end of the work week so into friday now there is an affront approaching from the atlantic and before it gets there, a ridge of a higher pressure around
7:28 pm
but still not fully high pressure controlling our weather would low—pressure sitting to the east. still the chance of the icher were coming up friday at four parts of eastern england, central and eastern scotland as well and perhaps more showers into the far southwest later in the data in between these two areas, sunny spells to the date and temperatures typically for this time of year around about 16 up to 22 degrees on friday. low—pressure still with us in the south on sunday with more heavy rain for the likes of london and cardiff. dry enough at least across the south as we head into sunday. bye for now.
7:29 pm
7:30 pm
hello, i'm ros atkins, this is outside source. england is about to take on denmark and the euros semi final. and while there is huge excitement, kick—off is in just half there is huge excitement, kick—off is injust half an hour. 60,000 fans are there and most of them supporting england. during a pink opening a committed team is that the fairy tale run since christian eriksen's shock collapse. the goalkeeper insists it can stop football coming home to england. has it ever been home? has you ever wanted? — it ever been home? has you ever wanted? was that not the world cup?
7:31 pm
whoever _ wanted? was that not the world cup? whoever wins will take on italy in the final on london on sunday. instead of emergency been declared in haiti after the country's president was shot dead at his home. we did a lot more information but it is very— we did a lot more information but it is very worrisome about the state of haiti _ let's return to our top story, the semifinal clash between denmark and england. this is live shot outside of the stadium where 60,000 fans are gearing up to watch the match. and it's notjust inside the stadium where there's a lot of excitement. just have a look at some of wednesday's front pages. the daily mail leading with �*come on england — let's make history�* while the sun goes with �*bring home the bacon lads�* and an england flag made out of bacon and bread.
7:32 pm
so a lot of anticipation but the players say the pressure of making their first major final in 55 years is not getting to them. here's england's star striker, harry kane. we have a great opportunity to do it this year. we are not taking denmark lately by any means. we know they are a very tough team, they've got some great players and obviously a great unit of a team as well. travellers coming from denmark to the uk currently need to isolate for ten days. meaning there wasn't enough time for fans to make it over in time for the game. this was the reaction from the coach after the last match. he told a danish newspaper... we hope borisjohnson wakes up and gives there will be some danish fans in the stadium. here are fans arriving.
7:33 pm
of the 60,000 fans in the stadium 8,000 will be danish. and here's their ambassador to the uk. managed to get 2000 additional tickets yesterday, so altogether there are going to be 8000 danes, all of them living here in the uk. so that's fair enough. they sold out in no time at all which is quite impressive, because we have sold 8000 tickets and there are only 30,000 tickets to the make danes living in the uk. so it's a huge proportion of the people here are going to wembley tonight. so most fans will be watching in denmark. lucy williamson is in a fan park in copenhagen. i'm assuming the atmosphere is as electric as those fanned owns in england. electric as those fanned owns in encland. . �* , electric as those fanned owns in encland. . �*, ~ england. that's right. atmosphere absolutely euphoric, _ england. that's right. atmosphere

7:35 pm
that point and really brought the country together, gave it a real emotional undercurrent. a mantra going around here, let's do it for christian and is a real sense that it's just been an emotional roller coaster for this country and they are really, colette hope or confidence, they are really ready to win. {lit confidence, they are really ready to win. , ., ., .,, win. of kristin got to get those coals in, win. of kristin got to get those goals in, but the _ win. of kristin got to get those goals in, but the feeling - win. of kristin got to get those i goals in, but the feeling confident and optimistic and you are extensive from the fans here, they want to face italy. is a lot of talk here about 1992 and how denmark are quite comfortable being the outsiders, winning the tournamentjust like you did back then and was pretty young woman who said her parents had not stops talking about it for 20 years and if we get through this she's going to talk about it for years to come let alone the final. as a real sense that they can do it, it does
7:36 pm
not matter the underdogs or matter it came into this as outsiders, they are having the time of their lives. and beautifully sunny copenhagen street, we can also cross over to wembley. john wants it is there for us we are hearing how the denmark fans are feeling optimistic. we know that the england fans are also outnumbering somewhat the danish fans in wembley behind you. a big shout of euphoria, big excitement when the squad was warming up a little bit earlier. yes. absolutely. coming with so much hope and expectation and they're going to create a real atmosphere is and could return home having played away at rome in the quarterfinal. some 60,000 inside and some 6000 will be made up of danish fans. it
7:37 pm
has not been successful for england, its right to say in major tournaments when it comes to semi finals have lost the last four and there's just this hope and expectation that england could get over the line but as we have been hearing you cannot underestimate the challenge denmark will face but theirformer winners of challenge denmark will face but their former winners of the tournament back in 1992 a couple players that played the premier as well who know what it's like to play in the stadium. the fa cup winner here not long ago and he will not be overwrought about the occasion. england tried to change the narrative around the team when it comes to major tournaments, so much disappointment and heartbreak with penalties or going out at the semi final stage and it seems as though gareth southgate has started to do that. and the way that they have achieved landmarks of this term is already winning their opening group game of the european championship and they had not done that before. only everyone a single knockout
7:38 pm
match before and now they've been there all rivals in a knockout game for the first time in 55 years, changing that history in a sense but if england are to prove that they can contest the biggest trophies and the biggest stage, which is what they want to do after making the semi finals at the world cup, a few years ago, they want to show that and this is their moment. back to back semi finals but can they make that nextjob? can the step it up and that's the thing that gareth southgate and his team will want to try and prove later. because as we know it's not going to be easy, it has been comfortable for them so far. i think against denmark it will be a tougher match and contest and it's time for them now to see what they can produce when they are challenged and what happens if they go behind, they have not conceded your instrument. what are the team—mate of if they are put under pressure? that's on the we will find out what we get under way here little bit later on. we out what we get under way here little bit later on.— little bit later on. we certainly will. just 20 — little bit later on. we certainly will. just 20 minutes' -
7:39 pm
little bit later on. we certainly will. just 20 minutes' time - little bit later on. we certainly will. just 20 minutes' time it | little bit later on. we certainly i will. just 20 minutes' time it will get a feel for what is taking place. thank you so much for the time being. lets get the latest in afghanistan, where the taliban is advancing at speed across the country as international troops prepare to leave. yesterday the us announced 90% of its troops had withdrawn after 20 years of war. and today the taliban launched their first attack on a major city in this recent offensive. taliban militants have entered kala—ay now a key city in western afghanistan. this footage from the taliban is of its fighters riding motorbikes into the city. people on the streets are cheering. and these pictures are of afghan troops inside the city. here's the state governor. translation: we are trying really hard to get the situation under- control. we have now control over the strategic areas of the city. we are in control.
7:40 pm
our security forces defeated the enemy this morning. the state governor has admitted to losing some ground to taliban fighters. here he is again. translation: | confirm - that the central prison was taken over this morning by the taliban. because they came to us from different directions, they came into the city. they did open the prison, but luckily our security forces went in time and took the control back. some inmates were captured, but unfortunately some did escape. most foreign forces in afghanistan left ahead of an 11th september deadline, leaving the afghan military in sole charge of security. and they appear to be losing ground. the taliban now claims to have taken almost
7:41 pm
half of the country, that's 166 out of 369 districts nationwide. they claim to be in control of the areas in dark grey. the red districts are contested. and the light grey shows government controlled areas. two months ago, the taliban controlled just 66 districts. here are some concerns from a security and terrorism analyst. unfortunately, the worst case scenario may be the inevitable one. and that is that the taliban not only get a foothold in afghanistan, but they retake huge swathes of territory. already they are adopting a pincer movement strategy operating from the south and the north. they are trying to encircle the government and make sure that they don't give them an opportunity to operate effectively. and the other scenario to tie in with that is that
7:42 pm
the taliban relationship with al-qaeda, which is symbiotic based on cultural and family ties, and just like in the 1990s, enabling al-qaeda to operate safely in afghanistan to plot and plan attacks. that is the concern, that is the worry of the international community, especially from the military and intelligence agencies that have been expressing. last week all us and nato forces left bagram air base near kabul, the key command centre for anti—taliban operations. at the peak of us involvement more than 100,000 us and nato troops passed through it. at the start of the year, that figure dropped to just 2,500. and now there are none. the huge compound is now deserted and under the control of afghan forces. yesterday the afghan base commander told the bbc that the last us troops withdrew in the middle of the night, without notifying the afghans. and this was the response from the pentagon. there was coordination
7:43 pm
with afghan leaders, both in the government as well as in the afghan security forces. about the eventual turnover of the air base. as you know, it was the seventh and the final base that we turned over to the afghan national security forces. you don't do that in a vacuum and this wasn't done in a vacuum. taliban fighters are also moving towards herat, close to the afghan border with iran. and leaders there are worried. today, tehran hosted a high—level summit between an afghan delegation and taliban representatives. it was chaired by the iranian foreign minister, mohammad javad zarif. he welcomed the us departure from its neighbour, but warned that the people and political leaders must make "difficult decisions for the future of their country". bbc persian's kasra naji explains the context. the interesting thing about
7:44 pm
afghanistan is that the delegation is not a government delegation, it's a group of former leaders of afghanistan. but nonetheless the message from the iranian government to both the taliban and the other side, the government side if you like is that you need to go back to the negotiating table. and iran supports a government in which the taliban will be a major component of it. and they prefer to avoid a war in afghanistan. but they also want to strengthen their links with the taliban. they have met the taliban a few times before in the last few years here and there in tehran, and elsewhere. but today they are keen to establish a stronger relationship with the taliban. change it from a security sort of relation to a more
7:45 pm
political one. don't forget iran has about a thousand kilometres of shared border with afghanistan and iran is very concerned about who controls that strip of land along the iranian border. and here's lyse doucet in kabul on the overall consequences, as the taliban advances. we understand that there was - an understanding between the united states and the taliban leadership. they would not seize l any provincial capitals if they are capable of _ that, before the us lead drawdown is complete. i but it seems that it's notjust by the east where this is - happening that local fighters all pumped up are explodingj the holes where they can. and there seem to be i many holes to exploit. it does not matter who you talk to in kabul, the - street cleaners with their. protective gear, the traffic policeman, the advisers to the ministers, - the ministers themselves. they are all worried
7:46 pm
about the future of| afghanistan, worried about— theirfuture, and their. family popped my future. everyone here waking up are going to bed at nightj with reports of yet more districts tumbling to the taliban. - the narrative matters so much and there i is a narrative of the taliban that i are literally on the way to victory. it's not factually correct, - but it is true that they are gaining ground. stay with us on outside source — still to come. we turn to the netherlands where investigtive journalist peter r de vries is fighting for his life after being shot on the street in amsterdam. india's health minister has resigned ahead of a major cabinet reshuffle.
7:47 pm
he'd been criticised for the handling of coronavirus in india, which crippled its health services leaving hundreds of thousands in dire straits. our correspondent devina gupta has the latest from delhi. throughout the day we saw 12 ministers resign from their posts and most noticeable was the resignation of the health he has been blamed for not being able to ramp up resources fast enough to deal with the covid challenge of the past two months, also leading to a shortage of oxygen, medicine, even vaccinations at covid hotspots. his successor has the challenge of ramping up the vaccine drive which has slowed down. the other big change is the information and technology portfolio where the outgoing minister has been at crossroads
7:48 pm
with many social media giants like twitter and facebook over content regulation. 43 ministers were inducted in this new team and more responsibilities were given to younger politicians. india's prime minister also said out a signalfor a more inclusive team by including seven women ministers and more leaders from different parts around the country. now the challenge is not only to revive the economy but pool resources for welfare schemes. critics say another challenge will be to management of the leadership style of narendra modi who wants to be at the centre of decision—making and policies.

denmark have previously won the euros, they took on the trophy in 1992. everything to play for. good evening. wednesday brought us a bit of a mixed day weather—wise. there was some sunshine and some heavy showers thunderstorms that have been slowly easing over recent hours. this was the scene in worcestershire earlier on. some big shower clouds around there with light surface water around as well. over the next few days, we keep a mix of sunshine and scattered showers, and i think by tomorrow the showers will be fewer and not as heavy as they have been today. a bit of a ridge of higher pressure trying to build in more, but low pressure not far away so that is still going to be dominating our weather. through the remainder of the evening and overnight, the showers gradually easing away. one or two lingering through parts of the midlands and eastern england and scotland.
7:57 pm
could be the odd rumble of thunder over the next few hours, but by the time we get to thursday morning, most places looking dry. clear spells, variable cloud and temperatures 10—1a degrees with or two misty patches around first thing thursday. for the day tomorrow, it will brighten up quickly across england and wales and will be more sunshine than there was on wednesday. fewer showers, but as things warm up, we will begin to see more showers cropping up and if you do get one, it�*s going to be quite heavy and potentially slow—moving with some hail and thunder possible. for scotland and northern ireland, a bit cloudier here, stretching to the north west with the odd spot of drizzle and most looking dry with the temperatures for most at 17—23 degrees. a bit coolerfor the north of scotland underneath that cloud. into thursday evening, the daytime showers will gradually start to fade away. they will be hit or miss with most places staying dry overnight and on into friday as well. heading towards the end of the work week, so into friday now, there is another front approaching from the atlantic and before it gets there, a ridge of sligthty higher pressure around, but still not fully high pressure
7:58 pm
controlling our weather with low pressure sitting to the east. still the chance of the odd shower cropping up friday for parts of eastern england, central and eastern scotland as well and perhaps more showers into the far south west later in the day. in between these two areas, sunny spells through the day and temperatures typically for this time of year around about 16 up to 22 degrees on friday. low pressure still with us especially in the south on sunday with more heavy rain for the likes of london and cardiff. drying up at least across the south of the uk as we head into sunday. bye for now.
