A US court has found President Biden's son, Hunter,guilty of lying about his drug use when buying a gun. He has been found guilty on all three charges in a federal gun crime trial. The jury in Delaware found that he'd lied about his drug use on a form while buying a weapon in 2018. He is the first child of a sitting president to be convicted in a federal court. How will this affect his father's re-election campaign?Also in the programme: Donors have gathered in Germany for a conference on Ukraine's reconstruction, but there are concerns as to whether it's free of corruption; how President Macron's surprise announcement of a snap election has triggered a potentially dramatic re-alignment in French politics; and we'll hear about a production of King Lear - staged by Ukrainians in Ukrainian - in the town of Shakespeare's birth.(Photo shows Hunter Biden holding hands with First Lady Jill Biden and his wife Melissa Cohen Biden as he departs his federal gun trial in Wilmington, Delaware, USA on 11 June 2024.

France's political leaders are scrambling to prepare for snap elections after President Emmanuel Macron dissolved parliament in response to a stinging European vote defeat by the far-right National Rally. These snap legislative elections could be a turning point for Macron's presidency. If the RN wins an absolute majority of seats in the National Assembly, it could provide France's next prime minister. Also in the programme: a military aircraft in Malawi carrying the country's vice president has been reported missing; and wildfires are raging across the world's largest tropical wetland: the Pantanal, in Brazil.(Photo: Emmanuel Macron after voting in European Elections Credit: Hannah McKay/POOL/EPA-EFE/REX/SHUTTERSTOCK)

And the widow of the Islamic State leader says she couldn't stop her husband's crimes.(IMAGE: Supporters watch French President Emmanuel Macron's speech on a large screen at the electoral party after the announcement of the results of the European Parliamentary elections in Paris, France, 09 June 2024 / CREDIT: Christophe Petit-Tesson / EPA-EFE/REX/Shutterstock)

Israel has previously estimated there were fewer than one hundred casualties. Footage from the area's Al-Aqsa hospital shows badly wounded people lying on the ground. We speak to a doctor who was there. Also in the programme: millions vote to elect representatives to the European Parliament; and will Americans learn to love cricket?

Noa Argamani, 26, Almog Meir Jan, 22, Andrei Kozlov, 27, and Shlomi Ziv, 41, were freed during a "high-risk, complex mission" from two separate buildings in the Nuseirat area, the Israel Defense Forces said.

Khartoum, he said, needed aid not arms.Also in the programme: are sanctions against Russia working? And sea urchins under threat.(Picture: Adam Hassan, who has an album with pictures of his son and father, who he said were killed by the RSF and Arab militias in the West Darfur town of Murnei in June, sits outside his makeshift shelter in Adre, Chad.

The UN Secretary General has called for immediate action to tackle climate change, including phasing out fossil fuels, banning ads about them, and imposing windfall taxes on energy companies. Antonio Guterres described fossil fuel firms as the godfathers of climate chaos, raking in profits while the planet burned. Also in the programme: Narendra Modi is on course for a third term as India's prime minister, with his BJP securing the backing of allied parties to form a new coalition government; and how much impact do the blue lights from our phones and tablet screens actually have on our sleep.(Picture: United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres speak at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City on June 5, 2024.

dear BBC officials! don't you see language incapability was a hindrance in Mr. Yazdani's speech holding him back to express his true inner feelings and viewpoints clearly? why you insist on inviting those who are not in the middle of crisis with better language proficiency?

آقا ی داریوش یزدانی! لااقل از مترجم استفاده می کردید که بتوانید آنچه در ذهن دارید را بیان کنید، اصرار شما به صحبت کردن به زبان انگلیسی این فرصت استثنایی را از مردم می گیرد که پیام خود را به گوش مردم جهان برسانند، برای مثال ده ها بار از you know استفاده کردن!! صداقت و خلوص نیت شما بر ما پوشیده نیست

why BBC is trying to downgrade the protests to women rights only? it's much more than that! they desire regime change! and when it comes to analyst on Iran, why do you choose people who people no longer listen to or trust? or people who are foreigners without having a deep understanding of the situation?

Coal Mafia is fuelling the election expenses of the ruling party BJP. It's more powerful than Modi himself. So it's a no go zone.

20 minutes talking about Russia but no mention that China may be responsible? I think BBC is compromised...

Some of the stories in this episode are definitely not more important than what is happening in Nigeria now. Are you avoiding the story??

The interviews with both schools of thought about the Polish elections were lop-sided at best. Opposing questions to their views about the situation were put to the winning party, and almost calming questions were put to the opposition. This is not the balance we expect from the BBC's journalism. At all.

did anyone else find it confusing on the story about the film promotions person in Afghanistan and then talking about the quote from Angelina Jolie that was really badly edited because it made it seem like the person he was about to talk to wasAngelina Jolie and I'm pretty sure that wasn't her she was the person interviewed was the focus of the article and was a good interview it was just mislabeled at the at the start which was confusing
