Ceasefire - where now? Your thoughts

Richard Bowen | 11:12 UK time, Monday, 14 August 2006

israeli_paratrooper_in_lebanon.jpgThe main story this morning is the Middle East ceasefire. We're bound to be asking whether it will work, but here's a few other ways we could do the story. Your suggestions are welcome.

We could go to our contacts in the affected areas on both sides and see how the ceasefire is playing 12 hours on. We could get the journalist Robert Fiske to open the programme stating his ideas about the future for the region, his article in Independent this morning makes the case that the real war has just begun.
Why don't you make your case for the future of the region, leave your contact details so we can get in touch.
Finally, do you understand the ceasefire agreement? Would it be worth us getting someone on the show to explain the ins-and-outs of the deal?
