Moldovan PM: Last chance for government to restore trust

Moldova's new Prime Minister, Pavel Filip, has admitted that politicians in the country have one last chance to restore public trust.

After more than 20,000 people demonstrated in the capital, Chisinau on Sunday, in objection to Mr Filip's links to powerful oligarchs, he warned he would crack down on any violent protests..

He spoke to David Stern.
