More testimony from citizens of the newly liberated city of Izyum. Meanwhile Ukraine and its western allies have condemned Moscow's move to hold snap referendums in occupied regions so they can be annexed to Russia.

Also on the programme: more than 200 aid agencies are using the United nations General Assembly to call on richer countries to end what they call the spiralling hunger crisis. And we meet the 17 year old Ukrainian student who has won a $100,000 prize for inventing a drone which can find landmines.

Queen Elizabeth II buried at Windsor Castle

Queen Elizabeth II buried at Windsor Castle where Britain's longest serving monarch was laid to rest after a private service. It's been a day of immense pageantry and also of reflection -- for the monarchy, for the United Kingdom.
Also in the programme: spreading unrest in Iran over the death of a woman being held by the morality police; and a US-Taliban prisoner swap.
