Five people have been killed in an attack on Jordanian intelligence officers at a Palestinian refugee camp on the outskirts of the capital, Amman, government officials say.

They described the incident as a "terrorist attack".

At least three of the five people killed were intelligence officers, the officials said.

The attack took place at the sprawling Baqaa camp north of Amman at about 07:00 local time (04:00 GMT).

The Baqaa camp was one of six set up in 1968 for Palestinian refugees fleeing the West Bank and Gaza Strip as a result of the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.

The UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) says it is the largest camp in Jordan.

Government spokesman Mohammed Momani said the "cowardly" attack targeted the intelligence agency office at the camp.

Some reports say all five of those killed were intelligence agents, others that two of the victims were office employees.

US election 2016: Clinton hails 'milestone for women'

Media captionHillary Clinton: "Tonight's victory belongs to generations of women and men who struggled and sacrificed to make this moment possible"

Hillary Clinton has thanked her supporters for helping her reach a historic moment for women - the US Democratic nomination for president.

"Thanks to you, we've reached a milestone," she told cheering crowds at a rally in New York.

She hailed "the first time in our nation's history that a woman will be a major party's nominee".

Earlier, Mrs Clinton won the Democratic primary in New Jersey, cementing her hold on her party's nomination.

She went on to win South Dakota and New Mexico, while her rival Bernie Sanders found victory in the Montana and North Dakota caucuses.

Why this election will make history

                                                                                                   

What an Obama endorsement will mean for Hillary

Six states have been voting in primaries on Tuesday but the race in California will count the most.

Mr Sanders had been hoping for a win in that state but early results indicated a significant lead for Mrs Clinton.


               
               
               

               
               
           

           
       

As the votes were counted, he told supporters he would remain in the race and contest the remaining primaries, despite acknowledging it was a "very, very steep fight".

Mr Sanders aims to sway super delegates to support him instead of Mrs Clinton at the party's convention in July, but commentators say the Vermont Senator is unlikely to succeed in his bid for the nomination.

The AP news agency reported on Monday that Mrs Clinton already had enough delegates to qualify as the Democratic nominee.

                    Hilary Clinton sent out a personal tweet celebrating her win
               

           

President Barack Obama called both Mrs Clinton and Mr Sanders on Tuesday, according to the White House.

He congratulated Mrs Clinton on "securing the delegates necessary to clinch the Democratic nomination for president".

Mr Sanders will visit Mr Obama at the White House on Thursday, per Mr Sanders' request, according to the White House memo. They will discuss "the significant issues at stake in this election that matter most to America's working families".


           

   
Media captionDonald Trump: "To all of those Bernie Sanders voters left out in the cold we welcome you with open arms"

Claiming the nomination in a speech in Brooklyn, New York, Mrs Clinton said Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump was "temperamentally unfit" to be president.

"My mother… taught me to never back down to a bully. Which turned out to be pretty good advice," she said.


           

   
Media captionBernie Sanders: "We will continue to fight for every vote and every delegate we can get"

Speaking to supporters in Santa Monica, California, Mr Sanders said his campaign would not support Mr Trump, "a candidate whose major theme is bigotry".

Mr Trump had earlier called on Sanders' supporters to join him after winning his party's vote in New Jersey, South Dakota, New Mexico, California and Montana.


Analysis - Anthony Zurcher, BBC News North America Reporter

In what amounted to a Democratic nomination contest victory speech, Hillary Clinton took some time to acknowledge the historic nature of her achievement. She made reference to the metaphorical glass ceiling that she has now shattered. She referenced the long struggles of the women's rights movement. And she tipped her hat to her Democratic rival, Bernie Sanders.

Then it was on to the work at hand - wrapping Donald Trump's recent controversies around his neck and pitching him into the Hudson River.

If Mrs Clinton has run a joyless primary campaign, it has been in part because she's spent much of it nurturing her built-in advantages within the Democratic Party and playing not to lose. Last week, in a foreign policy speech in San Diego, she went on the attack. And Tuesday night, she continued the broadsides. It's a role that allows her to show considerably more energy and passion.

Earlier in the evening, Mr Trump focused almost exclusively on economic issues. Gone were references to Muslim immigration bans or border walls. Instead he made an explicit pitch to Bernie Sanders supporters and other Americans disaffected by the current state of the US political system.

It was the kind of primary night speech that will be well received by Republicans politicians who have spent the last week in a cave or a coma. The rest of the party faithful will likely be more inclined to wait and see.

Clinton hails 'milestone for women'

US election 2016: Clinton hails 'milestone for women'</h1>

I think it should have read "millstone for women" as that more accurately describes the nature of this thoroughly dishonest woman.
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

                    Aiden Webb, pictured with girlfriend Bluebell Baughan, was an Anglia Ruskin University drama graduate
               

           

A British backpacker has been found dead in northern Vietnam, nearly a week after he was last seen.

Aiden Webb, 22, from Norwich, set off to climb the Fansipan mountain on his own on Friday.

His body was found by rangers in Sin Chai village at 12:50 local time (06:50 BST), the head of the Hoang Lien National Park told the BBC.

Mr Webb had fallen and hurt himself on Friday, but his phone stopped working the next day, his girlfriend had said.

Live: Latest on the discovery of Aiden Webb's body

Mr Webb, an experienced climber, had started his ascent of the 3,100m (10,300ft) high mountain - Vietnam's tallest - at about 06:00.

Ravine fall

He had been travelling with his girlfriend Bluebell Baughan, 24, of White Notley, Essex, and she was in contact with him by phone from the nearest township of Sa Pa.

                    Mr Webb's father said on Wednesday that his son had sent his girlfriend a photo of his location
               

           

She said he had fallen into a ravine and injured his arm and leg and they had agreed that she should call for a rescue team.

                                                                                                   

The couple last spoke in the early hours of Saturday before his phone stopped working.

Nguyen Quang Vinh, head of the Hoang Lien National Park in Lao Cai province in the north-west of the country, said: "It is very sad that we found the British tourist body today at 12:50.

"The position is quite near the location that his girlfriend gave us, in Sin Chai village."

Aiden's father Trever Webb and uncle Michael arrived in Vietnam on Tuesday to join the search.

On Wednesday, he told the BBC that hopes were fading of finding his son alive but he had gained permission to use drones to scour the area, saying the family was "desperate".

The equipment was due to arrive on Thursday.

                    Zachery, Sian (pictured as Frankie in EastEnders) and Amon were found dead at their London home
               

           

The partner of former EastEnders actress Sian Blake has admitted murdering her and their two children.

Ms Blake, 43, Zachary, eight, and Amon, four, were found at the family home in Erith, London, in January after being reported missing on 16 December.

Arthur Simpson-Kent, 48, entered guilty pleas before Mr Justice Singh at the Old Bailey via video link from Belmarsh prison.

Outside court, Ms Blake's sister Ava said the family were "really relieved".

Simpson-Kent, a hairdresser, was arrested at Heathrow Airport in February after being extradited from Ghana.

Ms Blake played Frankie Pierre in 56 episodes of EastEnders between 1996 and 1997.

Simpson-Kent left the UK days after Ms Blake and the two boys were reported missing.

Four days after the bodies were found, he was arrested on a beach in Ghana by local police.

                                                                                                   

Ms Blake and her sons Zachary and Amon died from neck and head injuries, a post-mortem examination found.

Media captionFootage captured on a mobile phone shows teargas and England fans chanting in Marseille.

Police in Marseille have deployed tear gas for a second evening to disperse England fans gathered ahead of the Euro 2016 football championships.

Officers in riot gear clashed with fans who threw bottles at police in the streets of the Old Port district.

BBC 5 live sports presenter George Riley said a group of England fans had appeared to be goading either the police or locals in the area.

France won the opening match in the tournament beating Romania 2-1.

The fresh clashes in Marseille began outside a pub in the same area that had been affected by trouble on Thursday and continued well into the night.

One England fan and one local man were arrested in the early hours of Friday after police had moved in with tear gas.

George Riley said the group he had seen gathering on Friday evening appeared "quite menacing", which prompted the 5 live team to leave.

'Provocation'

Dave Tomlinson, from the Football Supporters' Federation in Marseille, told BBC News: "Anytime you go and watch a football game anywhere in the world it's always disappointing to see any problems.

                                                                                                   

"We understand from the reports that it's a very small minority England fans that have been involved.

"We also understand that unfortunately there has been quite a lot of provocation from the French and also the Russian elements that are in the area."

He also said the style of policing was "a little bit different" from what England fans would be used to.

"… the first option at the moment seems to be that the French police are going to put tear gas in the areas where there is potentially going to be problems," he added.

                    Clashes continued well into the evening
               

           

BBC Newsnight producer Alex Campbell, who is also at the scene, tweeted: "Most England fans here are simply drunk and singing. But the glass bottles aimed at police are becoming more regular."

He later added: "Police just took their moment to charge England fans, who have now been pushed back. Some into a side road."

BBC Newsbeat presenter Ben Mundy said police had earlier told bars in the Old Port area to stop serving English fans beer because they were singing loudly.

This had antagonised them and made them more aggressive, he said. 

Police injured

On Thursday four French policemen were injured as they moved in on England fans, the news website France Bleu reported. Many of the fans had been drunk, it said.

After the tear gas was released, the police restored calm to the area at about 02:30 local time.

There had been no damage to local property, they said.

English fans are in Marseille ahead of England's game with Russia on Saturday.

Turkey visa move suggested by UK diplomat, papers show

                    Turkey has long been pressing for visa-free travel to the European Union
               

           

A British diplomat suggested visa-free travel for some Turkish nationals should be extended to the UK, documents leaked to The Sunday Times show.

She suggested the move be considered for Turkish "special passport" holders, who are mainly civil servants.

The EU backed Turks getting visa-free travel inside Europe's Schengen area, as a deal for accepting more migrants.

But the UK home and foreign secretaries said any suggestion of changing visa arrangements were "completely untrue".

The leaked telegrams, sent on 5 May by Janet Douglas, the deputy head of mission at the British Embassy in Ankara relate to the EU's own visa deal, planned as recompense for Turkish help dealing with the Syrian migrant crisis.

The deal, to allow visa-free travel to Schengen countries, was offered in return for Turkey taking back migrants who crossed the Aegean Sea to Greece. The EU fears that, without it, Turkey will not control migration.

What is the Schengen agreement?

EU sets out road to Turkey visa deal

                                                                                                   

Pro-Brexit ex-cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith said the documents showed Prime Minister David Cameron was involved with the European Commission in "an appalling deceit" to keep the prospect secret until after the EU referendum vote on 23 June.

He said: "They say nothing is happening about Turkey, but this shows they are already making official plans to allow visa free access for Turkish citizens.

"The attempt to hide this, and to delay key decisions until after the referendum, is cynical in the extreme."

'Open the floodgates'

In one leaked document, Ms Douglas said that when the EU deal is implemented "we will need to develop our own lines on the UK's stance to visa-free travel for Turks.

"One option would be to assess again the possibility of visa travel for Turkish special passport holders which would be a risk, but a significant and symbolic gesture to Turkey."

Special passports are mainly held by civil servants, their spouses and their unmarried children below the age of 25.

Within the reported deal there was no suggestion that "special passport holders" would have access for work.

Ms Douglas was also said to warn that failure to bring in the visa-free travel deal could prompt Turkey to "open the floodgates" and allow those fleeing Syria and elsewhere easier access to the EU.

It is not known how the Foreign Office responded to this correspondence from Ms Douglas.

'Appalling deceit'

Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond and Home Secretary Theresa May - both of whom back the Remain campaign - said there had been a selective leak of diplomatic telegrams and that the story was "completely untrue".

They said border restrictions would not be lifted "regardless of what arrangements other member states... may make with Turkey".

In a joint statement they said: "The government's policy is, and will remain, to maintain current visa requirements for all Turkish nationals wishing to visit the UK, regardless of what arrangements other member states in the Schengen area may make with Turkey.

"Schengen visas do not give anyone the right to access the UK.

"The purpose of diplomatic telegrams is for our embassies around the world to feed back information on the position and views of foreign governments.

"They are reports from our diplomatic posts, not statements of British government policy."

Last month, Mr Cameron said Turkey joining the EU was not "remotely on the cards," saying the UK has a veto on any prospective member joining the bloc.

The EU agreed in March to offer Turkey the proposed visa-free access by July 1 but the country has yet to fulfil all of the conditions laid down by the European Commission, including changes to Ankara's anti-terrorism laws to meet EU concerns over human rights.

EU referendum: Warning over net migration if UK votes to Remain

EU referendum: Warning over net migration if UK votes to Remain

EU referendum: Warning over net migration if UK votes to Remain



   
   

       
  •    
    13 June 2016


  •            
  • From the section EU Referendum

                    The report said 60% of the net migration figure would come from the EU
               

           

A group that wants lower immigration has forecast if Britain votes to remain in the EU, net migration will exceed 250,000 a year for at least 20 years. 

The Migration Watch report said a "cautious estimate" for annual net migration by 2035 was 265,000, with 60% of migrants coming from the EU.

It said there was complacency about the impact of rapid population growth which it said "could change the UK forever".

Remain said leaving the EU and damaging the economy was not the answer.

Immigration has been a key battleground in the referendum campaign ahead of the vote on EU membership on 23 June.

Net migration to the UK rose to 333,000 in 2015, according to Office for National Statistics estimates released in May - the second highest figure on record - figures which the Leave campaign argue illustrates the inability of the UK to control migration while being in the EU.

Migration Watch, which campaigns for reduced migration, has now looked over a 20-year period at the impact on net migration in the event the UK votes to remain in the EU on 23 June.




   

   

       

   
   

Immigration



   

       

           

This issue covers immigration and free movement within Europe.

       


        Why this issue matters

       

            What the leave and remain sides are saying about immigration in the #EUref campaign       

   


   

           

The debate



   
  • Total net migration to the UK is running at over 300,000 a year despite the government’s target of cutting it to under 100,000

  •                    
  • The most recent official figures put net migration from EU countries at 184,000 a year and non-EU at 188,000

  •                    
  • EU citizens have the right to live and work in any member state

  •            


   

           

Leave



   
  • It is impossible to control immigration as a member of the EU

  •                    
  • Public services are under strain because of the number of migrants

  •                    
  • High immigration has driven down wages for British workers

  •                    
  • Points-based system for migrants to the UK should be extended to include those from the EU

  •            


   

           

Remain



   
  • Immigrants, especially those from the EU, pay more in taxes than they take out

  •                    
  • Cameron's EU deal means in-work benefits for new EU migrant workers will be limited for the first four years

  •                    
  • Outside the EU the UK would still have to accept free movement to gain full access to the single market

  •                    
  • Immigration is good for the economy

  •

    What the leave and remain sides are saying in the #EUref campaign





Net migration is the difference between the number of people coming to the UK for at least a year and those leaving.

                                                                                                   

It said the figure of 265,000 excluded the possibility of Turkey joining the EU altogether and took the average of the high and low migration scenarios.

Under its low migration scenario, net migration from the EU would fall to 135,000 by the end of the period and only a small number of refugees who have already arrived in other parts of the EU would relocate to Britain.

In this scenario the government would successfully reduce non-EU net migration to 100,000 a year and British emigration would remain at 50,000 a year, leading to total net migration of 205,000.

For the high scenario, net migration from the EU would rise to 220,000 by 2031.


               
               
               

               
               
           

           
       

In this scenario, non-EU migration would remain at 150,000 per year and British emigration would remain at 50,000 net per year, leading to net migration to the UK to 320,000 in 20 years' time, it said.

Lord Green of Deddington, chairman of Migration Watch UK said: "This report is a final wake-up call. Even leaving aside the prospect of Turkey joining the EU, it shows that net migration could still be running at 265,000 a year in 20 years' time.

"This would bring our population to 80 million within 30 years. If we remain in the EU there will be nothing to stop a continuing rapid increase in our population. This would change our country for ever against the express wishes of a very large majority of our fellow citizens."

Vote Leave said the report confirmed its estimates of future migration levels from the EU and demonstrated that the "only way to take back control of our borders" was to leave the EU.

'Complex issue'

Remain argues immigrants, especially those from the EU, pay more in taxes than they take out and that immigration is good for the economy. It says David Cameron's EU deal means in-work benefits for new EU migrant workers will be limited for the first four years.

In response to the Migration Watch report, Home Office minister James Brokenshire - a Remain campaigner - said.

"David Cameron is in complete agreement with the leaders of the Leave campaign who have admitted Turkey joining the EU isn't remotely on the cards."

"Damaging the economy by quitting Europe is not the answer to the complex issue of immigration. Migration Watch say the Leave campaign's policy won't work - it could actually increase immigration.

"Independent experts agree that leaving Europe would hit the economy - costing jobs, putting up prices and meaning less money for the Government to spend on public services like the NHS."

Former Labour prime minister Gordon Brown is calling for the EU to provide extra financial help to parts of the UK with high levels of immigration to help deal with the pressure on schools, hospitals, housing and other public services.
