ISIS Advances in Iraq

As two of Iraq's biggest cities fall to ISIS rebels, Shashank Joshi, Middle East expert at the Royal United Services Institute, discusses what the implications are for the country. Nancy Youssef - Middle East Bureau chief for the Washington based McClatchy group - gives us the view from the US and explains why the country's reaction to the crisis has been muted.

Also on the programme, as the World Cup kicks off in Sao Paulo, there are cheers for the men on the pitch but boos for the men in suits in the VIP seats.

From New York we are joined by Maria Gallucci, reporter for the International Business Times and in Singapore, by Simon Littlewood - president of the Asia Now Consulting Group.
