Malaysia Targets Illegal Migrant Workers

Listen in pop-out player

Around 10,000 police are involved in an operation to check work sites in Malaysia, where they suspect illegal immigrants are working. We are in the capital, Kuala Lumpur, to get the latest on the raids there. Also, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe declares he wants his country to be 'a place where women shine'. We discuss gender barriers in the workplace with the Wall Street Journal's Tokyo correspondent Yuka Hayashi. We are also joined by financial analyst Ralph Silva in Toronto, Canada and the Wall Street Journal's Jonathan Cheng in Seoul, South Korea.
