USA: America's ageing infrastructure

In the United States, the state of public infrastructure has been deteriorating for years, sometimes even posing a safety risk to citizens. One of US President Donald Trump's major campaign themes was to get the country's infrastructure back on track. But it's not just a question of dealmaking and project management. It often comes down to whether Americans are willing to pay for the roads, bridges and other structures they say they want.

Meanwhile, this week on Facebook, over 20,000 people watched a graphic video of a Cleveland man being shot dead, prompting the social media site to review its policy on offensive content.

Plus, a former governor of Mexico, once a rising anti-corruption star, is arrested in Guatemala after six months on the run.
