Rupert Wingfield Hayes on the fierce debate over the future of Japan's nuclear power industry. South Africans consider the state of their country twenty years after the end of apartheid - Andrew Harding. Lucy Ash finds some small reasons for optimism in Ukraine -- a place where the police are accused of selling drugs and syringes litter children's playgrounds. The man who stole from a bank and became a folk hero - that story is told by David Chazan in Paris. And Nick Thorpe's been learning what's irking the middle classes in Slovenia and Bulgaria and why the strawberries aren't selling in the open-air markets of Ljubljana and Sofia.
