BBC news with Fiona McDonald. President Obama’s most senior aide has warned there will be no decision on more troops for Afghanistan until there’s a credible government in Kabul. In a CNN interview, the White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said it will be reckless to decide before Mr. Obama was satisfied that there was an Afghan government that could work effectively with the United States. Mr. Emanuel said a credible outcome to Afghanistan's disputed presidential election was vital. "What President Karzai must do, you know, the process there, is a credible and legitimate election or result, more importantly, for the Afghan people and for that government going forward. Whether that's through a run-off, whether that's through negotiations, the process will be determined by the Afghan people. The result for us and for the president is whether, in fact, there is a credible government and a legitimate process, the Afghan people then think, this has worked, it’s processed through." As fighting continues in the Pakistani army’s offensive against al-Qaeda and Taliban strongholds in South Waziristan, there are conflicting reports of casualties. Each side is saying the other has suffered heavy losses. Shoaid Pasan reports from Pakistan. Fierce fighting is continuing as Taliban militants stand firm against the security forces in South Waziristan. A Taliban spokesman told the BBC that the militants had not conceded one inch of territory to the army.

Locals say both sides are not coming clean with the numbers. Iran says five commanders of the Revolutionary Guards as well as senior tribal leaders were among around 30 people killed in an attack in the country’s southeast. Iranian state media said suicide bombers targeted a meeting between the Guards and tribal leaders in the province of Sistan-Baluchestan bordering Pakistan. Iran says a Sunni militant group Jundullah claimed responsibility for the attack. In the Iranian parliament, the speaker Ali Larijani condemned the bombing. Those dear people were working hard to restore security in Sistan-Baluchestan, and such behaviour is aimed at preventing economic progress there. The Revolutionary Guards will definitely redouble their efforts in order to restore security and ensure the province’s progress.

He came 5th in the Brazilian Grand Prix, and that gave him enough points for the championship title. The race was won by the Australian driver Mark Webber. Gary Duffy reports Jenson Button has started 14th on the grade after a disappointing qualifying run. But when the day was over he was world champion. By contrast, the Brazilian driver Rubens Barrichello had started the race in poor position but finished in the disappointing 8th place. There was an element of luck and a lot of skill involved in Button’s victory. An early collision between two other drivers are lightened to move quickly up the field while a punctured tire helped to thwart the hopes of Rubens Barrichello.
