Hello, I'm Justine Greene with the BBC News.

Finance ministers from the G7 group of leading economies say that confident of striking a deal in London today on taxing multinational companies. They've been discussing President Biden's proposal for a global minimum corporation tax rate of 15% to ensure that large companies pay their fair share. Faisal Islam reports.Agreement has been reached on the principle of a minimum global corporation tax rate and on the scope of efforts to target the activity of around 100 of the very largest multinationals, many of them big tech firms. Some haggling remained, though, over whether the minimum rate would be set at 15% or at least 15%. The USA also asked countries to quickly drop their digital services taxes should the deal be struck.

Senior politicians from Britain, Australia and the EU are joining business figures and scientists calling for global health to be at the center of next week's G7 summit. The group, the Reform for Resilience Policy Commission, says the world needs to stop thinking about pandemic as a once-in-a-century event. Naomi Grimley reports. It's calling on G7 countries to find an extra $2 billion to fund the COVAX program, which aims to get more COVID vaccines out to poorer countries. It wants to see detailed plans to diversify vaccine manufacturing across the globe, to avoid an over-reliance on producers such as India, which has to stop exporting doses in order to deal with its own infection surge. The group also says better biosecurity surveillance and data sharing will be needed between nations to help flag up future threats to global health.

Donald Trump has castigated Facebook for suspending his account until at least January 2023. It accuses the former US President of using the platform to incite his supporters to storm the US Congress earlier this year. Mr Trump said the suspension was a form of censorship and insulted the millions who voted for him.Hinting at a return to the White House, Mr Trump quipped that he wouldn't repeat a dinner invitation to Facebook's boss Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook says it will only restore Mr Trump's Facebook and Instagram accounts if it believes he poses no further threat to public safety.Nada Twafic is in New York. Facebook have said that this is the highest penalty under their new enforcement protocols. And they decided that the 2 years were necessary as a suspension for Mr Trump, because they thought that it would be a long enough time to allow for a safe period after the acts of incitement. And they also thought it would then be a significant deterrent for Mr Trump and others from committing similar violations in the future. Nada Twafic reporting.
