Unemployment falls in the US, but are the new jobs the right ones? We hear how the recovery is taking shape in Florida. Also the French President Francois Hollande plans to pour $6 billion into France's poorest suburbs. And the World Trade Organisation says China was wrong to slap tariffs on American chicken meat.
