BBC News. Hello, this is Jerry Smit. The United States says it will impose further sanctions against Belarus after last Sunday's force diversion to Minsk of a commercial airliner. The US has warned its citizens not to travel to Belarus and said it would suspend the 2019 US-Belarus Air Services Agreement. Ali McConnell reports. The White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki called the events of last Sunday a direct affront to international norms. She said the events took place amid escalating wave of repression by the regime of President Alexander Lukashenko. In response, the United States will reimpose sanctions against 9 Belarusian state-owned enterprises, blocking US citizens from any transactions with them. It will also work with the European Union and other allies to draw up a list of targeted sanctions against key members of the Lukashenko administration.

Here is Candace Piette. The demonstrations were initially in response to a proposed tax reform. Tens of thousands of people marched in Bogota and other major cities. From the start, there was a big police presence. Human rights groups reported there were some cases of live ammunition being used. By mid-May, there were dozens of deaths and the protests intensified. The demonstrators expanded their demands, calling for an overhaul of the country's education and health systems and the introduction of universal basic income.

The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has spoken of his shock and distress at the discovery on Thursday of the remains of 215 children in the grounds of a former boarding school set up more than a century ago to assimilate indigenous people. Mr. Trudeau said the deaths were a painful reminder of what he called a dark and shameful chapter of Canadian history. The MP of the Kamloops region is Kathy McLeod. There is nothing more painful in life than losing a child. My heart breaks today, thinking of all the loving parents who never saw their children return home and who were never granted the dignity of knowing what happened. World news from the BBC.
