Delhi pollution: Millions of masks given out to students

Pollution in Delhi has reached alarming levels.

Five million masks are being distributed in India's capital due to pollution. The air is so toxic that officials have now declared a public health emergency. We've reached out parents in Delhi to hear about the impact of pollution on their lives.

And we speak to Spanish women about a court’s decision in Barcelona to acquit five men accused of gang-raping a 14-year old girl of the most serious charges of sexual crime. The men were convicted and jailed for the lesser crime of sexual abuse because under Spanish law rape is ruled out if a victim is in an “unconscious state”.

Also: An extraordinary story about a woman in the US, who had an undiagnosed preeclampsia during her pregnancy and suffered a stroke. She then had an emergency C-section but lost all her memory and didn’t remember giving birth or even being married. We speak to her and her husband about the couple’s struggles to rebuild their life, and how for years she would wake up every day not knowing who she, her husband and her child were.
