Swiss women say climate change is violating their human rights
More than 2,000 women are taking the Swiss government to court claiming its policy on climate change is violating their right to life and health - the first time the European Court of Human Rights will hear such a case; also, scientists reveal brightest gamma explosion ever; and the British man who helped bring early jazz to Europe.

Migrants dead after northern Mexico facility fire
Dozens of people die in a fire in a migrant processing centre in northern Mexico close to the border with the United States.
Ciudad Juárez, where the fire occurred, is located across the Rio Grande river from El Paso, Texas and has seen an influx of people in recent weeks.
Many of the victims are thought to be people from Central and South America trying to reach the US.
Also in the programme: After another day of strikes and rallies in France against the government's pension reforms, we ask a union leader if they're ready to compromise; and the Syrian refugees in Lebanon forced to pick litter to earn a living.

Uneasy calm in Israel after controversial reforms are paused
Opposition parties in Israel are preparing to enter talks with the far-right coalition over the government's judicial overhaul plan, after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced its passage through parliament would be paused. We speak to a politician from the prime minister’s Likud party.
Also in the programme: We're live in Nashville Tennessee, after a primary school shooting kills six; and the remarkable Ethiopian pianist and nun Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou, who has died aged 99. We hear her play.

Netanyahu delays legal reforms after strikes
Israel's prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced he would delay a key part of controversial plans to overhaul the justice system to prevent a "rupture among our people". However it is unclear what a delay will achieve beyond buying time.
It followed intense protests after he fired his defence minister, who had spoken against the plans.
Also in the programme: Another school shooting in the US prompts renewed calls from the White House for gun control; and we ask if the steam has gone out of the Scottish independence movement with the appointment of a new governing party leader.

Strikes and protests as pressure mounts on Israel's PM
Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is under immense pressure over controversial judicial reforms that he wants to push through. The changes to the country's justice system have provoked an outpouring of anger from nearly all parts of Israeli society, including its powerful military. Tens of thousands of people took to the streets in anger on Sunday evening after Mr Netanyahu fired his defence minister, who had called for a pause on the changes. We'll be live in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.
Also in the programme: Our South East Asia correspondent reports from inside Myanmar for the first time since the coup in 2021; and we have a report from the town of Rolling Fork, Mississippi, almost wiped off the map by Friday's tornado.
