Barack Obama and Raul Castro have sparked over human rights and the US trade embargo at a tense press conference on the second day of the US Presidents visit to Cuba. Mr. Obama said Cuba had to make progress on political reform and human rights. President Castro accused the US of double standards. This is Aspen from Jon Sopel in Havana.  “He was right that the differences will show and not glossed over because they are quite profound. Raul Castro says look, if this gonna be normalization of relations. You have got lift the embargo immediately and of course the political reality in the United States because it would have to be voted in congresses, the people want to see progress on human rights abuses before that happens and so that's the kind of area where there slightly locked at the moment, but you know, you just have to kind of keep pinching yourself that 18 months ago the idea that any of these could possibly happen would have been frankly ridiculous. On the fact that it has happened, they have kind of made jokes together at a news conference is a sign of the remarkable progress. Nevertheless that has been made.”

The US justice department says the FBI may have found way to unlock the mobile phone of the San Bernadino gunman's Syed Rizwan Farook and it's one of postponement of its court case against the manufacturer Apple.

The Republican frontrunner Donald Trump says his first foreign policy priority if he is selected US president would be to dismantle the nuclear agreement with Iran. He was speaking at the annual conference of America's most influential pro-Israel lobby. “My No. one priority is to dismantle the disastrous deal with Iran. I've been on business a long time, I know deal making and let me tell you this deal is catastrophic for America, for Israel and for the whole of the Middle East.”

Gunmen have attacked a hotel hosting a European Union military training mission in the Malian capital Bamako. Malian security minister says one gunman was killed and two suspects have been arrested. Our West Africa correspondent Thomas Fessy reports.  “The Gunmen picked one of the best protected hotels. The hotel Nord Sud Azalai had been converted into the headquarters of the EU military training mission in Mali and the European soldiers standing guard were quick to react. The EU mission deployed to train Mali security forces has confirmed that none of its staff has been injured. If this attack seems to have failed, it comes just over a week after 19 people were shot dead in a beach resort in Ivory Coast, a reminder that the whole region is on alert.” You are listening to the latest world news from the BBC.

The leader of the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah has said his forces will remain in Syria until the Islamic State group al-Nusra Front have been defeated.

He also accused Saudi Arabia and Turkey of blocking a political solution. The talks have restarted in Geneva where the Syrian government delegation insisted Mr. Assad's future is not up for discussion.

The United Nations has accused Morocco of escalating a diplomatic spat over the disputed territory of Western Sahara. Rabat has now told the UN to close its military liaison office in the region. The UN spokesman Farhan Haqsaid there was a risk of tensions resuming if the peace keeping mission left. “There is no reason not for this escalation, the mission has going about its work for more than a quarter of century, it's been there to ensure a degree of stability and even though the situation on the ground has not been the one that satisfactory to the Sahara people. As long as the mission has been there, there has been a lessening of tensions.”

A jury in the United States has awarded the former wrestler Hulk Hogan a farther 25 million dollars impunity damages in his law suit against the news website Gawker. Last week he was ordered to pay more than 100 million dollars for posting a tape of Hogan having sex with the wife of his best friend and refusing to take it down. Gawker's lawyer said the scale of the damages was already weight beyond its means and they would appeal against the verdict. BBC News.
