Iraq and Norway

Pascale Harter presents stories from correspondents around the globe.

It's 25 years since the worst-ever chemical attack on a civilian population in the Kurdish city of Halabja, in Iraq. But now there’s a call for the bodies of the victims to be exhumed. It's thought they might provide clues as to where the chemical weapons were made, and bring to account any foreign companies which supplied them to the regime of Saddam Hussein. Ed Butler has just returned from Iraq.

Also on the programme: it’s smelly, it’s eaten raw, and it has to be washed down with hard liquor. So why do Norwegians like to eat rakfisk? Kieran Cooke has been to the small town of Fagerenes to investigate this fishy story.
