Never done this, but Import may be your tool of  choice:

xmlIn = Import["http://feeds.bbci.co.uk/news/world/europe/rss.xml";,
"XML" ]

get descriptions:

Cases[xmlIn,
 XMLElement["description", {}, {desc___}] -> desc, Infinity]

get links:

Cases[xmlIn, XMLElement["link", {}, {desc___}] -> desc, Infinity]

etc.

Cheers -- Sjoerd
