New crackdown on fake drugs

The international police agency Interpol has agreed a deal with 29 large drug firms to combat the sale of counterfeit medicines, which could account for up to 50% of drugs used in developing countries. We hear from Interpol and from Mira Shiva, an Indian doctor sceptical about the motives of the pharmaceutical firms. Also why mining and the influence of China are central to elections in large, empty Greenland - and why liking something on Facebook is giving away far more than you think about your personality.
