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

President Biden has put gun control of the core of his new crime prevention strategy, announcing a policy of zero tolerance towards firearms dealers who do not run proper background checks. In a speech at the White House, he said the authorities will now take a tougher stance. If you willfully sell a gun to someone who is prohibited from possessing it, if you willfully fail to run a background check, if you willfully falsify a record, if you willfully fail to cooperate with the tracing request or inspections, my message to you is this: we'll find you, and we will seek your license to sell guns. We'll make sure you can't sell death and mayhem on our streets.

The United Nations secretary-general has called on the Security Council to renew the mandate of the only international operation delivering humanitarian aid into northern Syria. Antonio Guterres urged member states to agree to keep the Bab al-Hawa crossing between Syria and Turkey open. Jessica McAllen reports.

The United States and several other countries want the crossing to remain open, arguing that it's a vital supply line for up to 4 million people living in rebel-held areas of northern Syria. Russia, however, has previously indicated that it may not renew the border crossing's mandate. Last year, Moscow used its Security Council veto to reduce the number of crossings along the Turkish border from 4 to 1. The Russians argue that aid to these regions can be supplied by the Syrian capital Damascus. Western powers and many aid agencies say that bureaucracy in politics means that assistance rarely gets through via these routes.

Brazil's Environment Minister Ricardo Salles has resigned ahead of a criminal investigation into allegations that he obstructed a police probe into illegal logging in the Amazon. Cat Wiener reports.

Mr Salles is accused of personally vouching for the legal origin of a vast hall of timber worth approximately $25 million despite Brazilian police evidence that it had been illegally logged. He also faces separate allegations of timber trafficking to the US and Europe. Mr Salles was a controversial choice for environment minister when he was picked by President Bolsonaro 2 years ago.Given his political track record as an advocate for Brazil's mining and agricultural sectors, he has presided over an unprecedented surge in deforestation in the Amazon.

The authorities in the Spanish region of Catalonia say the US tech pioneer John McAfee has been found dead in the prison where he was being held in Barcelona. On Wednesday, Spanish courts approved his extradition to the United States where he's wanted for tax evasion.The prosecutors there say he filed no tax returns and took active measures to hide his income from the authorities in the 4 years to 2018.If he had been found guilty, McAfee could have faced 30 years in prison. He made his name with the McAfee antivirus system.
