Saudi Arabia has frozen trade ties with Canada in a row over human rights.
Saudi Arabia has frozen trade ties with Canada in a row over human rights. We find out more from Stephanie Carvin, assistant professor at Carleton University in Ottawa who specialises in trade relations. Also in the programme, Ugandan magistrate Juliet Hatanga tells us about her experience being turned away from a hotel in Guangzhou, China, where authorities have allegedly introduced a ban preventing Africans from checking in to low- and mid-range hotels. We hear from Australia, where huge swathes of the country are suffering from the worst drought in living memory, leaving farming communities in crisis. Our arts correspondent heads to London's Almeida Theatre to find out about its show Lies, which takes a novel approach to dramatising financial crisis. Plus our workplace commentator Stephanie Hare looks at why some American couples where a woman earns more than her husband, keep that fact a secret.
