Hello, I'm David Harper with the BBC News.

President Trump has hailed the dawn of a new Middle East as the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed diplomatic accords with Israel at the White House. They are only the 3rd and 4th Arab countries to recognize the Jewish state. But Palestinians have condemned the accord as a betrayal. Here is our Arab affairs editor, Sebastian Usher. All four participants on the White House lawn, President Trump, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the foreign ministers of Bahrain and the UAE naturally painted an optimistic view of what these accords could bring. President Trump hailed them as a major stride in which people of all faiths and backgrounds could live together in peace and prosperity in the Middle East. The UAE and Bahraini foreign ministers echoed this that were keen to stress with the Palestinians and their cause had not been forgotten. That's a message, but for now, at least will have little traction in the west bank or Gaza, where protests were held throughout the day.

The mayor of Louisville, Kentucky says the city will pay $12 million to the family of a black woman killed by police six months ago. Breonna Taylor was shot eight times when officers burst into her home. The BBC's Larry Madowo says the move may not answer protesters demands for justice. The people who gathered at a memorial in downtown Louisville will select pack of the charges are introduced against these officers. Only one was fired, two on administrative leave, and they feel the reform that is needed goes much deeper. There's been decades and decades of mistrust between the Louisville metro police department and the black community, especially there. And the mayor Greg Fischer understands that. So this settlement of twelve million dollars, which is the largest in the history of the city, is one aspect. But he also told us that he has ordered a top to bottom review the entire police department. Larry Madowo reporting.

Firefighters in California are trying to stop a wildfire from engulfing a historic observatory in the mountains outside Los Angeles. Flames from the bobcat fire have spread to within 150 meters of the Mt. Wilson observatory founded more than a century ago. The Mt. Wilson observatory has made a huge contribution to our understanding of the universe. Bulldozers and fire fighting planes are being used to protect the complex.

The number of confirmed coronavirus infections in India has crossed 5 million, the second highest in the world after the US. Over the past week, experts say the virus is spreading much faster than in any other country. From Mumbai, here is Yogita Limaye. COVID-19 numbers continue to stack up and bring India's already inadequate medical infrastructure to its needs. Doctors at a public hospital in Mumbai are now being allowed to isolate for just one day between their duties and COVID and other wards, which puts patients at risk. Many are questioning why restrictions continue to be eased, including reopening metro rail systems across the country, even as the health crisis is getting worse.
