triangle Script

This is the global news podcast from the BBC World Service. I'm Alex Ritson and at 14 hours GMT on Monday the 27th of July, these are our main stories.

Tens of thousands of local tourists in Vietnam are ordered to leave a coastal city where the country's first coronavirus cases in three months have been recorded.

The price of gold has reached a record high, fueled in part by concerns over the pandemic.

Five Egyptian social media influencers have been jailed for two years each, accused of inciting debauchery in their posts.

Also in this podcast, the Japanese designer of some of David Bowie's most famous outfits is dead.
