News from home and abroad with Dotun Adebayo
It's summer in Buenos Aires - but it's the war of words over the Falklands which is really heating up. A day after Cristina Kirchner used British newspapers to demand negotiations begin on the hand over of the islands to Argentina, the Sun uses an advert in the Buenos Aires Herald to tell the government in the capital to get their 'Hands off!'. Local journalist Celina Andreassi tells us this is more of 'same old, same old', with politicians on both sides using the same dialogue as over the past few years - though she predicts if Argentinians learn about the Sun's infamous 'gotcha' headline during the Falklands War, there will be anger.
We're live in India to hear from two teenage girls on their reaction to the appalling rape and murder in Delhi - and how they feel attitudes are in their country to women. They tell Dotun how conservative the country is : when you walk down street with one boy, it's assumed it's your brother, if you're with a group - you're judged badly. They say boys and girls must mix from an early age so boys learn how to respect women and give them space. Says awareness is being raised, which may be one good change to come from such a tragic event. They also warn potential rapists need to know they'll face much tougher consequences, adding at the moment, they believe many get away 'scot free'.
'the world's friendliest criminal justice system' - that's how US lawyer David Rivkin describes what's awaiting a man who's been extradited to the USA from the UK over allegations he was part of an Al Qaeda plot to attack New York. The move's been criticised by many in the UK as prosecutors here didn't have enough evidence to charge him. Mr Rivkin says it's absurd to suggest he shouldn't be extradited based on that -- and reassures us Abid Naseer will be acquitted if there's no evidence to charge him in the USA.
