Is it a case of "do as I say, not as I do" when Emmanuel Macron visits Boris Johnson in London and neither wears a face mask? Masks will be available to supporters attending Donald Trump's first public rally since the coronavirus outbreak in Tulsa, Oklahoma but many of his supporters see not wearing one as a sign of political allegiance. Also, New Zealand's outcry over three new Covid-19 cases and why Chechens squared off with North Africans during four nights of rioting in the usually quiet French town of Dijon.


Plus, the worry over the volatile aftermath of deadly China-India scuffles at the border and what John Bolton's new book says about the US and its handling of North Korea.
