Settling Scores

BBC foreign correspondents take a closer look at the stories behind the headlines, including talk of revenge in Mali, as the nomadic Touareg people become targets. With Kate Adie.

Looking behind the week's headlines: Tim Whewell, just back from Mali, talks of it being a time of retribution. Every conflict throws up winners and losers. And it's the nomadic Touareg, he tells us, who have become targets for revenge.

Arguments over gun control have once again been dominating the headlines in the US and Paul Adams has been reporting on a story he says is quintessentially American.

Darius Bazargan has been in northern Lebanon, where he has been talking to factions allied to different warring groups in Syria.

The Swiss train service has an enviable reputation, but Imogen Foulkes has been finding out it has managed to anger its customers.

And in South Africa, Hamilton Wende has been out with a group of township teenagers whose extravagance and flamboyance has managed to anger some of their elders.

Producer: Tony Grant.
