This program is live captioned by Ericsson Access Services. Good evening. I am Darren Mara. The top stories. . Good on you mum - Senator Matt Canavan blames his mother, as he is forced to quit Cabinet because of dual citizenship. Keeping up with Kushner - Donald Trump's son-in-law grilled over alleged links with Russia, as the US President claims Ukraine was trying to help Hillary Clinton's campaign. And, breaking barriers - India's new president is sworn in.

Senator Matt Canavan has quit Cabinet after his mother told him he was an Italian citizen, but he hasn't quit Parliament. Instead, he will challenge the rule of the Constitution in the courts. Considered a rising star of the national party, tonight Queensland senator Matt Canavan's seat? Parliament is in the hands of the courts.Court the Italian government I am a citizen of Italy. I was not born in Italy. I have never been to Italy. To my knowledge, I have never stepped foot in Italian consulate or embassy. Until last week I had no suspicion that I could possibly be an Italian citizen.Senator Canavan's mother, who apparently has never visited Italy either and was born in Australia, registered herself and her son for overseas citizenship at the Italian consulate in Brisbane in 2006. He says while he knew his mother had become an Italian citizen, he only found out he had become one last week. Authorities confirming he was registered an Italian citizen in January 2007 although the. Application did not have his signature. Gist Joyce now standing in as resources minister while the High Court assesses whether Senator Canavan can stay in parliament.It is the Government's preliminary view that because the registration was obtained without Senator Canavan's knowledge or consent that he is not in breach of Section 44 of the constitution.I don't fully understand the explanation that he's given, I have got to say. I have tried to piece together how it is that something like this or why on earth something like this would be kept secret from him. There has never been a parliament like this one.Under Section 44 of the Constitution, a citizen of two or more countries is inallege to stand for parliament. Senator Canavan is the third senator to be Em boiled in the citizenship crisis. Greens co-Deputy Leaders Larissa Waters and Scott Ludlam both resigned in the past two weeks after realising they held dual citizenship. Both were unaware of their situation. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull last week describing the news as "remarkable". It is pretty amazing, isn't it, that you've had two out of nine Green senators didn't realise they were citizens of another country. It shows incredible sloppiness on their part.One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has requested an inquiry into Indian-born Malcolm Roberts after he would not provide information to show he was a duel national.

US President Donald Trump has tonight claimed, without offering any evidence, that Ukraine tried to boost Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, but it is Russia's alleged meddling in support of the Trump campaign will goodnight be the focus of the House Intelligence Committee. In just a few hours, his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner will face further questioning on his alleged links with Russia. A smiling Jared Kushner arriving at Capitol Hill to give evidence. The first member of the US President's inner circle to be questioned by the Senate Intelligence Committee about Russian med Lynn in last year's presidential campaign. Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser thrust into the limelight. Did you answer all of the questions, sir?The closed meeting lasting 2.5 hours. Back at the White House he made a rare appearance before the cameras.Let me be very clear - I did not collude with Russia, nor do I know of anyone else in the campaign who did so. I had no improper contacts. I have not relied even on Russian funds for my businesses.Before he spoke to the Senate investigators, Mr Kushner released an 11-page statement saying that he had perhaps four meetings with people who had links to Russia. The first one on April 27th last year when he briefly met with Russian ambassador Serge Jay Kisliak. The second is when he joined Paul Manafort to meet Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya who has alleged links to the Kremlin. He said that he never read the email chain setting up the Meathing, despite the subject being Russia, Clinton, private and confidential." After the election he met the Russian ambassador again with former adviser Michael Flynn. He held a meeting with Sergey Gorkov on September 13th who was said to have direct links to Vladimir Putin. Her Kushner said that to meetings made zero difference to the campaign. Donald Trump had a better message and ran a smarter campaign and that is why he won.But surrounded by White House inthe turns -- inturns, some messages are better down played. President Trump's focus squarely on healthcare, making a last-ditched appeal to Republicans to repeal Obamacare.So far Senate Republicans have not done their job in ending the Obamacare nightmare. Now they have a chance, however, to hopefully, hopefully fix what has been so badly broken for such a long time.Republicans can only afford to lose two votes. Senator John McCain, who was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer, expected to make a dramatic return for the vote tonight. Muslim leaders have advised their worshippers to continue a boycott of the Al Aqsa Mosque compound. It follows the decision by Israel to remove controversial metal detectors from the entrances. Instead, Israel's security Cabinet says they will replace them with advanced technologies. Night-time at the Al Aqsa Mosque compound brought a significant shift in battle lines. Recently installed metal detectors, dismantled by Israeli police. Israel said they were about safety. Palestinians insisted it was about control.Don't touch Al Aqsa Mosque. (EXPLOSION) For a week-and-a-half now since the fatal shooting of two Israeli police officers, Muslims are both protested and prayed outside. TRANSLATION: It is going to depend on who lasts the longest. We have that stamina and we will achieve our goals and enter Al Aqsa Mosque in the way that we want - no gates, no cameras, no anything.And that is the sticking point. While the metal detectors are being removed, Israel says more advanced, less obtrusive measures will be used.We will make sure that Muslims will be able to pray on the Temple Mount, but at if same time we don't want to see another incident when people are bringing explosives or weapons to this holy place.The United Nations is warning of widespread ramifications if there is no resolution.They have the potential to have catastrophic costs well beyond the walls of the old city. The Israeli ambassador focused on Friday's deadly stabbing at a West Bank homz.These terrorists are brainwashed with the same hateful teachings.From the Palestinian representative...Wouldn't you have an occupation with ruthlessness as we see it, don't expect all Palestinians to be angels not to react to it.The reaction to the Al Aqsa Mosque security has already caused protest, bloodshed and diplomatic tensions with Jordan. The UN is warning a resolution must be reached by Friday prayers to avoid further escalation. India has a new president tonight. Ram Nath Kovind was sworn in as the drint's 14th president in a lavish ceremony. The 71 -year-old low-caste politician who was backed by the ruling Hindu Nationalist-led coalition easily won the election. India's Constitution provides a largely ceremonial role for the President. It strengthens the grip of the Hindu right on all public offices. Coming up: A heartbreaking decision, as parents give up the battle to save their baby boy.

The Turnbull Government remains adamant asylum seekers in offshore detention will never resettle here, despite a rare intervention by the UN's Refugee Agency. The union union said it had a secret understanding that the minister would consider allowing in dozens of people with close family links here. For the 2,000 people on Manus Island and Nauru, the waiting game continues. Those who pass strict checks are expected to go to the US in a deal signed under the Obama Administration. The rest will be given an ultimatum to settle in Papua New Guinea or return to their country of origin. Coming to Australia has long been out of the question.If people seek to arrive illegally, if they pay criminal people smuggling networks, and they are transferred to regional processing centre, they will not be resettled in Australia.But the UN's Refugee Agency said despite the strong stand publicly behind closed doors there was a different understanding between talks with officials including the minister himself. He said they agreed to be involved in the US deal if a small group would be considered for resettlement here instead.We are talking about parents and their children, spouses being separated. It is quite widely known that the union union very often has to dole on a confidential basis with issues of resettlement.The union union claims it recently has been informed that transfers for a select few will no longer be possible. It says that will prolong family separation, including for one man who arrived by boat with his four brothers. They all have been relocated to Australia since except for him.What we have now is the youngest brother who was a child when he arrived, 17 years old, and he is stuck on his own. All of his brothers live in Perth.My understanding is that the Australian Government's position has been clear and consistent throughout.The union union says one thing, the Government says anything thing and there is a clear disparity between those things.In many ways, the US resettlement deal is still uncertain. The assessment process has been slow to date the US recently hit its yearly cap for accepting refugees. That stalled any prospect of transfers until at least object. -- October. There is fury over serious allegations of corruption and water theft in Australia's biggest river system. Some states are calling for an official inquiry after accusations that farmers in NSW are ripping off others interstate in the Murray-Darling Basin. The longest rivers in Australia and 22 catchments make up the Murray-Darling Basin. It covers four states. The $13 billion Murray-Darling Basin Plan is meant to balance agricultural use of the water and conservation efforts, but residents alone the rivers say they have long complained of something not being right.We always knew that the water wasn't coming down the darling that should come down the darling.The ABC's Four Corners allegeds some irrigators in the Barwon-Darling region of the basin are tampering with metres to take billions of litres of tax payer-funded water they are not entitled to out of the system so they can grow cotton. If true, critics say it leaves irrigators at the other end of the basin in SA short.It seeps on the basis of the allegations they were trying to tonne a blind eye to rampant water theft of colossal proportions.It is probably not appropriate to say those farmers are greedy or guzzlers. The question is whether the water management arrangements that are currently in place with the Murray-Darling are fair.Also that a bureaucrat planned to share irrigation to help irrigators flight the plan as well as floating the idea his government may pull out of it all together. The body representing the irrigators says the allegations are serious but not its responsibility.It is up to them to comply with their own regulation. They reiterated their support for the basin plan. The Federal Government says that is the appropriate step, but there are calls for stronger action, like a royal commission or judicial inquiry.There is no Murray-Darling Basin Plan if NSW is allowed to get away with this. RADIO: The ab Tajjing appears to be happening at the highest levels of State Government. This must be dealt with as a matter of urgency.With two years left of the roll-out of the Murray-Darling Basin there is concerns that support for it will dry up. A controversial proposed mosque in regional Victoria has been approved after years of protests and legal action. Bendigo Council says that work on the mosque is expected to start within weeks. The city's mayor says it meets all requirements under planning legislation. The council received more than 350 objections to the development before it was initially approved in 2014. The British parents of terminally ill baby Charlie Gard have dropped their legal battle to take him to the US for experimental treatment. Their lawyer said the latest scan showed that time had run out for the treatment to work. Charlie is not expected to make it to his first birthday in just under two weeks. (CHANTING) Shame, shame!Raw emotion outside the High Court, while inside Charlie Gard's parents were accepting their fight is over. Their son should be allowed to difficult. They emerged from a highlymotional hearing to pay tribute to Charlie.Our son is an absolute warrior and we could not be prouder of him and we will miss him terribly. His body, heart and soul may soon be gone, but his spirit will live on for eternity and he will make a difference to people's lives for years to come. We will make sure of that. We are now going to spend our last precious moments with our son, Charlie, who unfortunately won't make his first birthday with in just under two weeks' time.Charlie has been in intensive care in Great Or Monday Street Hospital since object. He's a rare inherited condition and cannot move, feed or breathe unaided. The central question was whether this powder, nuclear-side therapy, which is added to food, could boost his muscle function. It has nerve been tried on animals or humans with his condition. His parents raised 1.3 million pounds for the treatment in the United States. Now that money will go to a foundation in Charlie's name. But every neurologist who examined him said that the treatment was futile because by January he had suffered catastrophic and irreversible brain damage. The High Court had to intervene and in April backed the doctors, saying Charlie's suffering should end. His life support be withdrawn. Every legal appeal by the parents failed. But they had powerful supporters, including the Pope and Donald Trump - the latter tweeting an offer of help. This has been an extraordinary case, a battler the fate of a baby boy that was fight at not just here in court but internationally. The judge said it was one of the pitfalls of social media that the watching world felt it right to have opinions without knowing the facts of the case. He said that the court's paramount consideration had been Charlesy's best interests at all times. The case came back to court when this American neurologist MitchioHorano claimed new evidence that his therapy could help. Last week he and another doctor from the Vatican flew over to examine Charlie for the first time. New MRI body scans were ordered. On Friday night, Charlie's parents accepted these showed his muscle wasting was now so severe he was beyond help. There was bitterness he did not get the chance of treatment sooner.A whole lot of time has been wasted. We are now in July and our poor boy has been left to just lie in hospital for months. Had Charlie been given the treatment sooner, he would have had the potential to be a normal, healthy little boy.In court, Connie Yates said they would be haunted by the "what ifs" for the rest of their lives, but now they had to let Charlie go.It is an incredibly brave decision by Charlie's parents. They have thought through for themselves what the new evidence shows and they have reached a conclusion probably the judge would have reached the same - it is very brave for them to do it without waiting hear what he had to say. Great or Monday Street hospital said this had been a bruising court case, adding the agony, December solation and bravery of the parents' decision humbled all who worked there. They are now supporting the family in their final time together. The US city of San Antonio is still reeling after 10 migrants sweltered to death in the back of a truck. The driver could now face the death penalty. Survivor Adan said that he knew the risks, but like many others he rolled the dice to get a job in the United States.

It is estimated more than 100 people were trapped in the trailer, sweltering at 60 degrees Celsius. They took turns drawing air from a hole in the side of the truck, but with no water, Adan passed out.

Another man was strong enough to escape, but didn't get far. He was found in a wooded area nearby and taken to hospital. 10 adult males now have been confirmed dead. 2of the 40 survivors are eater still unconscious or Greyly ill. Officials are warning they could be suffering irreversible brain damage TRANSLATION: Most were Mexicans and their Government is conducting its own investigation. I can tell you that cell people in the morgue have not been identified. They could be of any nationality and several others in the hops. Many of them have not been able to express -- hospitals. Many of them have not been able to express their nationalities or names because they are unconscious.For many in San Antonio the grim discovery is too close to home.This is a city of immigrants, people who have come here, their families from different parts of the globe and who are compassionate towards the suffering of others.The city mayor says the dead victim of people smugglers.We hope the full weight of the law falls on the driver and those involved.The truck driver entered court to hear that he could face the death penalty if convicted. James Bradley says he only discovered his human cargo on arrival at the Wal-Mart. He says that he opened the trailer doors and noticed bodies lying on the floor like meat. Another question: Why didn't he call 911? The Vatican's famous mountains are drying up or temporarily at least. Two baroque masterpieces in Saint Peter's Square have been turned off as the Vatican takes desperate steps to preserve water after a prolonged drought in Rome. All of it 100 fountains will be turned off. Drinking fountains will be closed as well. Coming up next, the weather and an astronaut's view of the dazzling northern lights.

The magic's in the bag.

Let's check the finance figures now when the Australian share market closed hiegs year as bargain hunters lifted most stocks across the board. The banks firmed with CBA leading the way. The iron ore miners posted solid gains.

In a country where pandas adorn everything from chopsticks to slippers, China is building the first of 100 solar farms shaped like a giant cartoon panda, of course. The panda power plant is expected to generate 3.2 billion kilowatt hours over 25 years and they said it saves 1.6 million tonnes of coal and cuts greenhouse gas emissions by 2.7 million tonnes. That is one powerful panda. And to lighting of a different kind. This view of the Arroyo seen from the International Space Station. A time lapse video captured by a NASA astronaut shows vibrant green lights dancing around the Earth's atmosphere. The explanation is fairly technical, though. Arroyo is the result of collisions between the Earth's gas use particles and matter released by the sun's atmosphere. Now to the weather:

Briefly in sport, the Raiders' forward Sia Soliola has tonight been handed a 5-match ban for his reckless late hit on Storm full-back Billy Slater. The New Zealand international faced the NRL judiciary and had been expected to receive a heavy suspension. Cooper Cronk says his Melbourne teammate is still suffering headaches four days after the hit. That is the world this Tuesday. Tonight's stories on online. I am Darren Mara. Goodnight.
