Millions of Iranians have filled the center of Tehran as a coffin carrying the remains of General Qasem Soleimani moves slowly through the streets. The vast event was part of three days of nationwide ceremonies plan to honor the commander who was killed in a US airstrike in Iraq. The mourners past his casket over their heads as they chanted "death to America". Lyse Doucet is our chief international correspondent.

The most prolific rapist in British criminal history has been sentenced to life by a court in Manchester.

Mabs Hussain, from Manchester police force, says detectives were shocked to discover that Sinaga had filmed all his attacks. This is an absolutely uNPRecedented case. Looking at that amount of evidence is challenging in itself. That's equivalent to 1500 DVD films. We believe there's over 190 victims that have been involved with Reynhard Sinaga and 70 of them are still to be identified approximately.
