Meet the Icelandic mother hoping to be president


A journalist and former game show host who only gave birth one month ago is due to find out whether she will be elected president of Iceland.

Thora Arnosdottir will find out on Saturday whether she will join an increasing number of women who have risen to some of the most senior positions in the country.

Iceland has seen its voters turn increasingly against male politicians in the wake of the economic collapse.

The BBC's Luisa Baldini joined the presidential hopeful on the campaign trail.
