Hello, I'm Marion Marshall with the BBC news.

There have been further clashes in the French port of Calais as demolition teams destroyed hundreds of makeshift shelters for migrants trying to reach Britain in the capital known as the Jungle. French riot police fired tear gas at people who were hurling stones.

Leonard Doyle, head of communications at the International Organization for Migration, warned against treating migrants in a heavy-handed way. There are obligations under various UN treaties humanitarian obligations to look after, let's not forget, refugees and asylum-seekers. They may be migrants, but they are also coming from, in the large, they're coming from refugee producing countries, Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq.

And it's an obligation to actually support them, not to water cannon them. The medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres has sharply criticized Macedonian police for using teargas to prevent migrants including children from crossing the border. The group has stormed a barbed wire fence to enter Macedonia from Greece en route to Northern Europe.

New research provides the first evidence that the Zika virus may cause Guillain-Barre syndrome, a serious illness that leads to the body's immune system attacking the nervous system. It concluded that 1/4000 people with Zika could also expect to contract Guillain-Barre syndrome which can paralyze and kill. Jane Draper has more. The current outbreak of Zika virus in central and south America is causing concern because of its suspected links to underdeveloped brains in babies and also Guillain-Barre syndrome. Researchers analyzed the blood of patients who developed the rare nerve disorder during a Zika outbreak in the Pacific island of French Polynesia two years ago. From this work, they predicted there could be one case of Guillain-Barre for every 4000 people falling ill with Zika.

Argentina's new administration has reached an agreement with a group of foreign investors in a long-running dispute over defaulted government bonds. The investors will receive 4.6 billion dollars from the Argentine government to settle all claims. Daniel Gallars reports.

Argentina has been blocked from borrowing money internationally for the past 15 years. It took the government of President Mauricio Macri almost three months to get creditors to accept its current offer to end that dispute. Markets reacted well to the news that a deal had been reached. But there are still a lot of work to be done. After winning over its creditors, the Argentina president must now convince his own congress that this is a good deal for the country.

A federal judge in New York has ruled the US government cannot force the technology company Apple to give the FBI access to a locked iPhone used in a drug's case. The government sought access to the phone in October months before a judge in a separate case ordered Apple to help unlock the iPhone of an Islamist gunman who shot 14 people dead.

This is not the first time one of Google's famed self-driving car has been involved in a crash, but it may be the first time it's caused one. The car traveling at 3km/hr pulled out on a public bus going 24km/hr.
