haitian presidentjovenel moise has taken place amid heavy security near cap—haitien, the main city of his native northern region. outside the moise family compound, police fired shots and tear gas at protesters voicing anger at the president's murder. a high courtjudge in northern ireland has ruled there should be a new investigation into whether the security services could have prevented the omagh bombing in 1998. 29 people were killed in the attack, including nine children and three generations of the same family. in 2013, the government said it would not hold a public inquiry. our ireland correspondent emma vardy reports. ona on a busy summer �*s day, the bomb which exploded in the centre of omagh was the single worst atrocity of the northern ireland troubles. no—one ever convicted. today, relatives of the is welcome to the

forever, so the judge's words will have huge importance here today, and particularly that idea that bringing together intelligence from both british and irish state agencies could provide new answers. to think that they didn't have to die in the way they did, the fact that this could have been prevented, there needs to be some sort of further investigations into why this happened. the ruling cannot compel the irish authorities to take any action, but the judge said he hoped they would investigate. the british government has said it will consider the recommendations, as the case provides fresh hope for those who have long campaigned to shed new light on the horrors of one of northern ireland's darkest days. emma vardy, bbc news, omagh. now on bbc, halima aden, the world's first hijab wearing supermodel, meets us fashion designer tommy hilfiger to talk diversity and how to go beyond tokenism to see real change.

and mostly dry day on friday, things are now changing with the weather. we've got some heavy showers and some thunderstorms moving their way in from the south—west and through the course of the weekend, it's going to turn cooler and fresher with some downpours for some places, particularly towards the south. that's down to the fact that this area of low pressure is pushing its way in, and that's going to generate some really heavy downpours at times, some showers, some thunderstorms as well. and if you do catch some of those thunderstorms, they could bring some disruption to travel — particularly across parts of southern england and south wales, there is a risk of some localised flooding. so as we head through saturday morning then, initially the heaviest of the downpours will be close to the south coast and they'll slowly work their way northwards across the southern half of england and wales as we head through the day. some of them bringing some thunderstorms, some hail and some gusty winds mixed in with some of those heavy showers. further north across the uk, most places staying dry with some warm sunshine. temperatures around 26, possibly 27 degrees in the warmest spots towards the north—west. we've got more cloud just lurking around those eastern coasts of scotland and
6:58 am
north—east england as well. into saturday evening, we keep that threat of heavy showers and thunderstorms going on across some southern and south—eastern parts of england. they should ease a little bit overnight. many places starting sunday morning on a dry note and temperatures a little bit fresher overnight than they've been recently, between about 12 to perhaps 16 degrees or so. now, through the second half of the weekend, then, low pressure still not far away. it's just starting to drift its way a little bit further eastwards, so that's going to bring another day of fairly heavy showers and thunderstorms. but i think the focus of most of them during sunday will be across southern and south—eastern parts of england, perhaps one or two into south wales, too. but for the rest of the uk, once again, some dry and some warm weather with fairly light winds and long spells of sunshine. temperatures down a notch on recent days, so by the time we get to sunday, highs typically about 20—211 degrees for most of us. again, watch out for localised flooding with those torrential hit—and—miss heavy showers. into monday, and another day of a few showers around across southern parts of england and wales and if you do catch one, it could be heavy and thundery as well. but i think much of the uk seeing again some spells of sunshine and largely dry conditions with temperatures about 20—211 degrees on monday.
6:59 am
into the working week, it does remain pretty unsettled. more showers in the outlook, as you can see, but turning a little bit drierfurther south across the uk. bye— bye.
