The US has been measles-free for 15 years but there has been a new outbreak, which started at Disneyland in California. The theme park has been praised for its handling of the outbreak, which may have been triggered by an overseas visitor. The spread of cases across seven states and Mexico is being blamed on parents who have chosen not to give their children the MMR vaccine, due to concerns about potential side effects. No authoritative research has been published to back up claims that the vaccine may be linked to autism and bowel disease.
Alistair Leithead reports from Orange County in California.

Around sixty thousand people have fled their homes in North Eastern Syria on the second day of a major air and ground assault by Turkish forces. There’s been heavy fighting in the central border region. Some civilians have been killed and dozens more have been injured on both sides of the border. Turkey’s President Erdogan regards the Kurdish fighters in Syria as terrorists – he claims more than a hundred have been killed.
Turkey is trying to seize land just inside the border to create what it claims is a “safe zone” in Syria to settle some of the millions of Syrian refugees who have fled the eight-year war.
Sophie Raworth presents a roundup of the day’s news with the BBC’s International Correspondent Orla Guerin, Middle East Correspondent Quentin Sommerville and North America Editor Jon Sopel.
A suspected far-right extremist carried out the attacks on two shisha bars in western Germany, killing at least nine people, officials say.
Chancellor Angela Merkel said there were many signs the attacker in the city of Hanau had acted out of racism.
Federal prosecutors are treating the case as terrorism. Some of those killed were believed to be of Turkish origin.
The 43-year-old suspect killed himself, police say. He was found dead at his home along with the body of his mother.
Local media have identified the suspect as Tobias R, a German citizen. The Bild tabloid reports he had a firearms licence, and that ammunition and gun magazines were found in his car.
Authorities are examining a video that appears to be from the suspect, posted online days before the attacks, in which he expresses right-wing conspiracy theories. Bild said he had also left a letter of confession.
The attack comes amid growing concerns about far-right violence in Germany. Speaking in Berlin, Mrs Merkel said: “Racism is a poison. Hate is a poison and this poison exists in our society and is already to blame for many crimes.”
