Updates as UK voters choose to leave the European Union.
There have been chaotic scenes in the lower house of the US Congress
as Democrats staged a sit-in to demand a vote on gun control legislation.
The sit-in is being led by congressman John Lewis, a veteran of the civil rights movement of the 1960s.
"What has this body done [to respond to the violence]?'' Mr Lewis asked.
"Nothing. We have turned a deaf ear to the blood of innocents. We are blind to a crisis. Where is our courage? How many more mothers... and fathers need to shed tears of grief?"
"'Lewis is the only living "Big Six" leader of the Civil Rights Movement, having been the chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), playing a key role in the struggle to end legalized racial discrimination and segregation. A member of the Democratic Party, Lewis is a member of the Democratic leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives " Source: Wikipedia.

Megan Bradbury’s debut novel Everyone is Watching is a portrait of modern New York from the perspective of the artists who have made it their muse. Zooming in on the lives of four creative figures - Walt Whitman, Robert Moses, Robert Mapplethorpe and Edmund White - it describes the way art influences a city and vice versa, from Walt Whitman’s visionary urbanism at the end of the 19th century, through to Edmund White’s nostalgia for a city that has all but disappeared by the start of the 21st. SIMON RICHARDSON meets the author to talk town planning, literary ventriloquism and explicit photographs.
