We take a look at the British press following Friday's historic general election in the UK. Hailed as a victory for the Tories by conservative outlets, the results are also described as a crushing blow to Labour by the left-leaning media. We examine the role of controversial Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in this defeat. Finally, we turn to the US press, where many parallels have been drawn between the UK vote and the upcoming 2020 US presidential election.
While Brexit has very much dominated the UK election campaign, 18 female MPs have said they will not be standing again due to a toxic political atmosphere fueled by online harassment. We talk to Professor Kalina Bontcheva who's closely tracking the abuse British politicians, especially women, are currently facing online. Plus how a two month-long strike by Zimbabwe's doctors and nurses is forcing women to seek out traditional midwives who often deliver babies with no sterilization or post-natal care.
Victims of terrorism and those who fell while fighting against it have been remembered in the UK and France. 13 soldiers died in Mali during an operation targeting jihadis. Emmanuel Macron said their sacrifice was "for the freedom of the world".It comes as vigils have been held in the UK for the two people killed in Friday's London Bridge attack. Families are battling to ensure their memories and beliefs aren't used for political point-scoring.
