I'm Rose Rayman with a look at the latest BBC news.

The White House has released details of the legal team who defend President Trump at his impeachment trial next week. They include Kenneth Starr, whose investigation led to the impeachment of Bill Clinton more than 20 years ago. The veteran lawyer Alan Dershowitz will also take part. His previous clients include O. J. Simpson and the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Peter Bowes looks at how the trial will open. It'll start slowly. I think with the presentations from both sides, the fileworks may come a little bit later, and it may well depend on that decision, that we still haven't heard whether or not there'll be witnesses. And clearly, the Democrats who are bringing this prosecution, they want to see witnesses. They believe there are individuals that can explain what they know about what went on during that time, that President Trump was talking to Ukraine.

One of President Trump's earliest supporters in the US Congress, the former lawmaker Chris Collins, has been sentenced to more than two years in prison for his role in an insider trading scheme. Mr. Collins, an New York Republican has also been fined $200, 000.

Honduras and the Organization of American States have failed to agree on a new mandate for an anti-corruption mission that has operated there for the last three years. A foreign ministry statement said there have been concerns the body had overreached its mandate. Here's Candace Piette. The OAS mission expressed regret, saying it had strengthened the fight against corruption in Honduras by indicting over a hundred people and bringing 14 to trial. But the country's powerful elites seem to have lost the appetite to fight corruption. A number of current and former Honduran lawmakers were indicted by the OAS body. They helped prevent prosecutors from advancing many of the cases. The president himself, Juan Orlando Hernandez also appears to have lost interest. Candace Piette with that report.

The Simpsons actor Hank Azaria has said he will no longer provide the voice of Apu, an Indian immigrant who runs a convenience store in the long-running American cartoon. Accusations of racism have dogged the character for years, partly because Hank Azaria is white. The name Fox, an icon of Hollywood entertainment, is to vanish from cinema screens after more than a century.

Disney has announced that no further films will be released under the logo 20th Century Fox, the studios behind the classic films from the Sound of Music to Alien and Avatar. Disney bought the company last year from Rupert Murdoch and wants to make clear there's no link with Mr. Murdoch's Fox corporation or Fox News.
