Syria Weapons Deal and Inside India's Currency Crisis

Washington says an offer to remove Syria's chemical weapons is 'potentially positive' - but who is going to do the removal and how much will it cost? Nicholas Burns, a former US ambassador to NATO, explains what the latest developments mean politically. And, we ask an expert - just who would remove the weapons, how, and at what cost?

World Business Report presenter Mark Whitaker continues his focus on Bangalore, where he has been speaking to two of the most influential people in Indian business: Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, CEO of biotechnology company Biocon, and Nandan Nilekani, co-founder of global IT giant Infosys. Mark also finds out what impact India's falling currency - the rupee - is having on ordinary Indians.

Plus, Australians look forward to tax cuts promised by the new government, and we profile the infamous Pink Panther gang, linked to yet another jewellery heist in Europe.
