Wild Horse Chase

Reporters' despatches from far and wide: a vegetarian of 37 years' standing, Nick Thorpe, is despatched to ask questions about horse meat and to investigate a slaughter house in Romania; can Japan spend its way out of recession and into prosperity? Economists are thrilled at the idea. But Rupert Wingfield Hayes in Tokyo has his doubts. What's the US military doing in a remote corner of the Philippines? Kate McGeown's gone to find out. Will Ross is in northern Nigeria wondering why so few of those detained, and suspected of militant attacks, are appearing in front of the courts. And Tim Butcher in New York meets up with an old friend with whom he once went to war.
From Our Own Correspondent is produced by Tony Grant.
