Hello, this is Daniel Iovanescu with the BBC News. Democrats in the United States have strongly condemned Donald Trump's tax arrangements after the New York Times reported that the president had paid no tax at all in 10 of the 15 years before he took office. Mr. Trump, who has long fought to keep his tax returns private, called it fake news. But the speaker of the House of Representatives, the Democrat Nancy Pelosi, said it was clear the president had taken extraordinary measures to avoid paying his fair share of taxes while hardworking Americans were doing so. This voter in Southern California, Alicia Hand, said it was wrong. It's actually really scary and disturbing that it was allowed to go on for so long to find out that. You know I pay once a month for health care, the same amount he paid in taxes, every week having a hard time right now, struggling. And this was very devastating news for a lot of people.

Heavy fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan has continued for a second day in the disputed region of Nagorno Karabakh. The administration of the mountainous region said that Armenian positions had lost ground, with another 15 of its troops killed today. It also said that Turkey was helping the Azerbaijan military. At least 23 people on both sides were killed in clashes on Sunday, the worst for many years. Eteri Musayelyan is a spokesperson for the International Committee of the Red Cross in Nagorno Karabakh. We call on the sides to take all measures necessary to ensure that civilian life and infrastructure is respected and protected and spared, in line with the obligation to respect basic rules of international humanitarian law or otherwise law of armed conflict.

The Chinese-owned video sharing App, TikTok, has avoided a ban on new downloads in the United States. A judge issued a temporary injunction just hours before it was due to take effect. As James Clayton explains. A decision late into the evening, the court would need more time to ascertain whether TikTok was a security risk. The injunction is temporary, however. The ban could still go ahead unless TikTok can do three things, agree a deal with US companies, Walmart and Oracle, to create a new partnership based in America, get that signed off by Donald Trump and then get that approved by the Chinese government. This TikTok saga isn't even close to being over.

Opposition parties and farmers are protesting in several Indian states against agricultural reforms signed into law on Sunday. A tractor was set on fire near the famous India Gate Monument in Delhi, while Punjab's chief minister joined a sit-in at the village of an independence hero. The reforms liberalize the market for agricultural produce, but critics say small farmers could suffer by losing a guaranteed minimum price.
