From the BBC World Service: The People's Bank of China cut its benchmark interest rate for the second time this year, in a surprise move after data showed slower than expected economic growth in July. Plus, South Korea promises aid to North Korea if the country stops developing nuclear weapons. And, a year after the Taliban seized power in Afghanistan, many women and girls are still excluded from work and formal education.
