A bitter row has broken out between Germany and the US over allegations that the National Security Agency has been listening in to Chancellor Angela Merkel's mobile phone. Mrs Merkel has phoned President Obama to demand an explanation - although presumably not using her mobile.

Plus, six months on from the Rana Plaza factory fire in Bangladesh, we hear what is being done to protect workers and prevent similar disasters from occurring in future.
