UK Parliament to be suspended ahead of Brexit deadline

It means Members of Parliament have limited time to stop a no-deal Brexit

The Queen has approved a move by the British government to suspend Parliament, just a few weeks before the UK is due to leave the European Union. It means Members of Parliament will have limited time to pass laws to stop a no-deal Brexit. We'll hear reaction from people in the UK.

Also, we speak to a taxi driver in Pretoria as protests in the city continue. It's after a taxi driver was shot and killed by a suspected drug dealer.

And in the US, a Palestinian teenager admitted to Harvard University has said he was detained and refused entry to the country because officers disapproved of his friend's political comments on social media. We speak to a reporter at the university's newspaper.
