Battle Intensifies for Iraq's Oil Refineries

29 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 19 June 2014

As oil companies move staff out of Iraq, we look at the battle for the Baiji refinery. Albania's marijuana crop is worth half of the country's income, but now the Albanian government says it wants to eradicate marijuana farms to help its bid to join the EU. Also, as 90% of Zimbabwe is unemployed, we speak to the country's Finance Minister Patrick Chinamasa about so many people living below the poverty line. Finally we look at the problem of homelessness in Ireland, as local people are priced out of the housing market. (Image: EPA)
