    Amnesty International deliver ‘body bags’ to Olympic organisers highlighting police killings and Palestine announces plans to sue Britain over creation of modern state of Israel.

    Amnesty International has delivered forty body bags to the organizers of the Rio Olympics, representing the number of people killed in Rio de Janeiro by police in just one month. We talk to Liz Martin, Brazil Police Watch founder.

    The Palestinian Authority has announced plans to sue the British state for its role in the creation of Israel, and its subsequent crimes against the Palestinian people. We speak with Mick Napier from the Scottish Palestinian Solidarity Campaign.
