The US charges Chinese military officials over cyber-crime

The US has charged five Chinese officials with launching cyber attacks on American industrial and military targets in order to steal secrets and intellectual property. Plus, the British drugs firm Astrazeneca brushes off a 'final' takeover offer from the US pharmaceutical giant, Pfizer. Also, the convicted French rogue trader, Jerome Kerviel, has been drawing attention in a public campaign to protest his innocence - even trying to enlist the help of the Pope. And our regular commentator Lucy Kellaway questions how much we 'really' work as the hours of the working day tick by.
