North Korea and the United States: The story behind decades of tension

Amid increasing tensions on the Korean peninsula, the question being raised is the following: Exactly how far is North Korea prepared to go? Pyongyang carried out its sixth and biggest nuclear test last weekend, a move which led the United States to accuse the rogue state of "begging for war". We take a closer look at a conflict which dates back to the Korean War in the 1950s.

But first, President Trump's administration has announced the scrapping of a programme giving work permits and the chance to study to people brought to the US illegally as children. Our reporters followed one so-called "Dreamer" who arrived in Florida aged just 10 years old. Like many others, his future is now far from certain.

And staying in the US, the country's fourth-largest city Houston is trying to come to terms with the devastation left behind by Hurricane Harvey. Dozens died in the recent floods, sparked by the storm which destroyed thousands of homes and much of the city's infrastructure. But while inhabitants assess the extent of the damage, for some, Harvey will bring big gains.
