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

Kurdish-led forces have declared a final territorial victory over the Islamic State group jihadist in eastern Syria. The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces have been engaged in fierce fighting with the remaining militants outside the village of Baghouz. Aleem Maqbool is in Syria. The official declaration finally came from the Syrian Democratic Forces that the so-called caliphate had been totally eliminated. It followed a massive offensive earlier this week on the last stronghold of the Islamic State group in the town of Baghouz. Local forces have since been involved in mopping-up operations, fighting militants who were hidden in tunnels, clearing unexploded ordnance and booby trap devices, and also it appears removing what are estimated to have been many hundreds of bodies. While people in this region have been celebrating the territorial defeat of IS, there is clear recognition that this is by no means an end to the threat posed by the group and the fight against it will go on.

There were reports that the Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen has launched airstrikes against Houthi rebels in the capital Sanaa. Saudi media said the Dailami air base had been targeted. One of the two mosques in New Zealand where a gunman shot dead fifty people has reopened eight days after the massacre. The Al Noor Mosque where the killings began had been closed during police investigations into the shootings.

Officials in Afghanistan say at least three people have been killed in two explosions at a stadium in the southern city of Lashkargah, the capital of Helmand province. A senior civil servant is among the dead, the deputy governor of Helmand was injured, but officials said the governor escaped unhurt. About a thousand people had gathered at an event to mark Afghanistan's National Farmer's Day.

There's tight security in Paris ahead of a further day of protests by the yellow vests movement. Police have banned demonstrators from the Champs-Elysees after rioters destroyed businesses last Saturday. Here's Hugh Schofield. Last Saturday, shoppers and tourists watched in horror the scenes of lawlessness along the Champs-Elysees that the government says can't be allowed to happen again. And so for today, the Paris police chief has been replaced. Fines for illegal assembly have been increased, and the area around the Champs-Elysees has been declared off-limits. For the first time, soldiers normally on anti-terrorism patrols are to be deployed today outside public buildings in order to free up police. But that's raised worries about what happens if troops armed with assault rifles and untrained for riot control find themselves cornered by a mob.
