BBC investigation suggests Sudan massacre planned

It suggests the June attack on protesters in Sudan was ordered from the top and planned.

The BBC has analysed more than three hundred mobile phone videos which show the extent of the violence perpetrated during last month's attack on pro-democracy protestors. Reports that victims were dumped in the River Nile are corroborated by images of corpses with blocks tied to their feet.

Also in the programme: A test for NATO as Turkey takes delivery of a shipment of Russian missiles; and Italy’s Matteo Salvini is facing calls for an inquiry into a secret Russian oil deal recording.
