triangle Script

This is the Global News Podcast from the BBC World Service. I’m Janet Jaleel and in the early hours of Saturday the 25th of July, these are our main stories.

Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson has admitted that his government didn't understand the nature of the coronavirus in the early weeks and months of the pandemic.

The US authorities say a Singaporean man has pleaded guilty to working as a Chinese agent as tensions between the two superpowers continue to grow.

Dozens of journalists have resigned from Hungary's leading independent news website, claiming that the government is attempting to destroy it.

Also in this podcast, we examine the effects of colonialism in Kenya and how memories remain of those who were punished for opposing it.
