Hello, I'm Marion Marshall with the BBC news. A suicide bomber has killed sixty-three people at a packed wedding reception in the Afghan capital Kabul. Two hundred other people were injured. The Taliban has condemned the attack, but the Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said the Taliban could not absolve themselves because they provide a platform for terrorists. Richard Forest reports. Eyewitnesses said the bomber detonated his device in the men's reception area. I was in the kitchen and was coming to the hall when I heard the huge sound. My ears couldn't hear anything and there were lots of injured people. Everybody was running away. Most of the victims were men or boys, the injured taken to hospitals across the city. The attack came as the Taliban and the United States are trying to negotiate an agreement on the withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan in exchange for Taliban commitment on security and peace talks.
Leaked British government documents have warned of shortages of fuel, food and medicines if the UK leaves the European Union in October without a deal. Nick Eardley reports. The Sunday Times has obtained a leaked government document looking at the potential impact of an ordeal outcome known as Operation Yellow Hammer. It warns of possible fuel shortages, reduced availability of some food. It also says plans to avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland by keeping it open is unlikely to prove sustainable.
A government source said the document was not what ministers expected to happen, but were scenarios being looked at as part of no-deal preparation. More than a hundred British MPs have urged the Prime Minister to recall Parliament immediately, suggesting that it should sit permanently until Britain's scheduled departure from the EU on the 31st of October.
