BBC NEWS

2016.10.15

BBC News with Stewart Macintosh.

There's been an outpouring of grief across Thailand, as people mourn the death of King  Bhuminol Adulyadej. When the news was announced, crowds outside the hospital where he was being treated broke down. King Adulyadej had been the world's longest reigning monarch.

The American singer and songwriter, Bob Dylan, has won this year's Nobel Prize for Literature. The Swedish Academy said Dylan had created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition. It's the first time the award's gone to a songwriter.

The Portuguese politician, Antonio Guterres, has been officially appointed the next secretary-general of the United Nations. The former Portuguese prime minister said he would fulfil his role with gratitude and humility.

The U.N. Mission in the Central African Republic says thirty people were killed by a militia group, which attacked the central town of Kagobandoro. The U.N. blamed the Silaica, a largely-Muslim rebel group, which overthrew the government in 2013, sparking a civil war.

The U.S. Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, says he has substantial evidence to contradict allegations that he sexually assaulted a number of women. Mr. Trump told a rally in Florida that his opponents were conducting a vicious campaign against him. But he would gladly take the slings and arrows for his supporters.

The President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, said he believes the choice facing Britain in leaving the European Union is between a hard Brexit and no Brexit. He insisted that the U.K. would not be able to retain the benefits of E.U. membership after it left.

The President of football's world governing body, FIFA, has been outlining plans to change the scandal-ridden organization. Johnny Infrantino told the BBC he'd increase participation in the game by a third, and double the number of women players to sixty million. There'll also be changes to business practices. The FIFA Council is meeting in Zurich.

And that is the BBC News.
