Conservative leadership hopeful Liz Truss has scrapped a plan to link public sector pay to local living costs, within hours of announcing it. The BBC’s Nick Eardley runs us through the latest. Also, al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, who plotted the 9/11 terror attacks with Osama Bin Laden, has been killed in a US drone strike. Adam is joined by the BBC’s Lyse Doucet in Kabul and BBC Security Correspondent Gordon Corera to discuss what happened. And George the Poet stops by to discuss his new book, his podcast and his PhD. Today’s Newscast was made by Tim Walklate, with Alix Pickles, Danny Wittenberg and Keiligh Baker. The technical producer was Emma Crowe. The editor was Jonathan Aspinwall.
