Tunisia goes to the polls

Tunisians head to the polls in presidential elections; Humberto dumps rain on the Bahamas

Tunisians head to the polls for a presidential election, following the death of their President in July.

Also in the programme: After Hurricane Dorian brought destruction, a new storm brings unwelcome heavy rain to the Bahamas.

And what will a drone attack on a major oil facility in Saudi Arabia, halting half of the country's oil production mean for world oil prices?

Joining Paul Henley to discuss these and other questions is Rita Sakr, a Lebanese-born Lecturer in Postcolonial and Global Literatures at Maynooth University in Ireland.
