Hello, this is David Austin with the BBC news.

The authorities in Northern California say they've found the remains of another thirteen people killed by the worst wildfire in the history of the state. It brings the total known to have died in the blaze in and around the obliterated town of Paradise to 42. In Southern California, powerful winds are fanning another huge fire. Dan Johnson sent this report. Some people were found in their homes, others by their cars or at the wheel, overcome as they tried to escape. More than a hundred are believed to be still missing so there are fears the number of dead could rise further. Closer to Los Angeles, some people have been allowed back into devastated neighborhoods to assess the damage. President Donald Trump declaring a major disaster means there's extra money to support those affected. Thousands of firefighters are still working because new fires keep breaking out. Fanned by hot, dry winds, it could be weeks before they're all finally put out.

Israel says airstrikes have now targeted more than a hundred sites in the Gaza Strip, including the military intelligence headquarters of Hamas in northern Gaza. Tom Bateman reports from Jerusalem. Rocket alert sirens were again sounding in southern Israeli towns at dawn after around three hundred and seventy rockets and mortars were fired from Gaza since yesterday afternoon. In the town of Ashkelon, a man was found dead in the rubble of a building, while a nineteen-year-old soldier was seriously wounded when an anti-tank missile hit a bus. Health officials in Gaza said three Palestinians were killed as Israel targeted dozens of what it said were militant sites. Hamas said if there were further strikes, it would expand the circle of fire against Israel, while Israel threatened to retaliate with an iron fist.

The Democratic Party's candidate Kyrsten Sinema has won the Senate race in the southern US state of Arizona, narrowly edging out her Republican rival Martha McSally. David Willis has the details. Kirsten Sinema's victory in a fiercely fought election whose outcome was too close to call for nearly a week makes her the first Democrat to represent Arizona in the US Senate in almost a quarter of a century. Her victory over Martha McSally means the Democrats now hold forty-seven seats in the US senate with two still undecided. Republican Party has fifty-one and the final makeup of the Upper House will be determined by a recount in Florida and a run-off election in Mississippi.
