Tonight, we lead on the news that a professional footballer has obtained a disclosure order against the social networking site Twitter.

The application seeks the disclosure of the identities of a number of Twitter users who had been responsible for the publication of confidential information about him.

Then we'll be looking into the story that the Rwandan government is masterminding an alleged assassination plot in this country against dissidents critical of the Rwandan regime.

And as Dominique Strauss-Kahn is granted bail by a judge in New York after being formally charged with trying to rape a hotel maid, we'll consider who might be in line for his former job heading up the IMF.

All that with Emily Maitlis at 10.30pm.
