Lorry deaths: Vietnamese families seeks assurances over the missing

It's believed a number of the 39 people found dead in a lorry in the UK were from Vietnam

An organisation that represents the Vietnamese community in Britain says it's been sent photos of nearly twenty people reported missing since a group of migrants were found dead in a refrigerated lorry. VietHome says the images are of people between the ages of 15 and 45. Police originally believed the victims found in the container were Chinese.

Also in the programme: We'll be looking at the role of the Iranian-backed Shia militias deployed to suppress the on going anti-government protests in Iraq; and Argentinians head to the polls with the country's economic crisis foremost in their minds.
