USA: Las Vegas shooting prompts debate on gun laws

As the United States reels from the deadliest mass shooting in recent history, the massacre in Las Vegas has renewed debate on gun laws. Democrats are pushing for expanded background checks, but the White House says it's premature to talk gun control. In a country where the right to bear arms is enshrined in the Constitution, the latest debate seems unlikely to bring any real change.

Also, Donald Trump has been to the US island of Puerto Rico, two weeks after it was devastated by Hurricane Maria. We take a look at how local people reacted to his visit.

Plus, as the 50th anniversary commemorations of the death of Che Guevara get underway, we look at how the controversial figure is remembered today.
