The truth is out there: Area 51 does exist

Continued violence in Egypt is casting a huge cloud over the country's economic viability. Also, fracking exposes a cracking in public opinion across Europe. And from sales assistant to super rich, we hear the ultimate rags to riches story of Rosalia Mera, the world's wealthiest self-made woman and founder of Spanish fashion giant Inditex, who's died at the age of 69. Plus, the CIA has finally acknowledged the existence of a top secret test site in the United States known as Area 51, in newly declassified documents, but will that put an end to the alien conspiracy theories? We hear about the Russian man who did more than just read the small-print on his credit card - he re-wrote it. And we talk to Peter Ryan, business editor for ABC News in Sydney, about some of the hilarious gaffes in Australia's election campaign.
