Iran plane downing: Several people detained

Several people have been detained over the accidental shooting down of a Ukrainian plane.

Several people have been detained over the accidental shooting down of a Ukrainian plane in Iran. President Rouhani has said everyone responsible for bringing down a Ukrainian passenger plane last week must be punished. Several people have been detained in connection with the incident. We have an update from BBC Persian.

Also, we hear from Indonesia's LGBT community after the mayor of a town near Jakarta ordered raids on places they meet. It's in response to the jailing of an Indonesian serial rapist in the UK, Reynhard Sinaga.

And we hear from people in Senegal about their thoughts on living in the new city that singer Akon is planning to build.
