This is the BBC News. Hello, I'm Jonathan Izard. The author of a damning book on Donald Trump is standing by everything he has written and he dismissed the president's assertion that he had never talked to him or authorized his access to the White House. Michael Wolff, the author of the instant bestseller Fire and Fury told US television he had spoken to the president for total of three hours. Book describes the president has being mentally unfit and childlike. Jon Sopel in Washington has more. The picturesque paints of life in the West Wing is unsparing. Allegations of marital strain, of tears and tensions, of disfunction and improvisation and the gravest charge of all, Wolff alleges that a number of his unnamed sources told him the president was mentally unfit to remain in office. A charge that brought this response from the president's spokeswoman. It's disgraceful and laughable. If he was unfit, he probably wouldn't be sitting there. The author says he stands by every word. The most remarkable thing about this is given Michael Wolff's track record. Why White House staff gave him access for months on end as virtually a semi-resident?There's growing tension at the United Nations ahead of a Security Council meeting called by the US to discuss the recent anti-government protest in Iran. Russia has accused the Americans of meddling in what is a purely Iranian matter. Allen Johnston reports. Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said the US interfered shamelessly in the affairs of other countries. He said he is concerned for human rights as a pretext and he suggested that there is call to consider the situation in Iran at the UN was another example of this. President Trump has talked to his respect for the protest that is in Iran and promised them great support, but the unrest appears to have died down and over the last few days, there have been large rallies of pro-government demonstrators.Forces backing the Syrian government had reportedly gained more ground in fighting in the rebel-held province of Idlib in the north of the country. The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that over the past 24 hours, the troops and their allies had taken control of another 14 villages. World News from the BBC.
