Deadly Cambodia stampede, cholera epidemic in Haiti, French cuisine recognised as a world monument by the UN

Derek Thomson presents a news show produced exclusively from content provided by amateurs. Photos, videos and personal accounts from our network of Observers around the world - all checked by our staff in Paris. First run Saturdays at 8:10 am Paris time.

Presentation : Derek Thomson.  Editorial Team : Julien Pain, Ségolène Malterre, Lorena Galliot, Sarra Grira, Peggy Bruguière and Paul Larrouturou.
 
STORY 1: CAMBODIA 
 
We begin today in Cambodia, with the horrific stampede that killed hundreds of people and left a nation in shock.
 
Observer: Polet Pech in Phnom Penh. 
 
STORY 2: HAITI 
 
In Haiti, anger and frustration at a deadly cholera epidemic have been spilling over into the streets.
Observer: Cyrus Sibert in Cap-Haitien, the nation’s second-biggest city.
 
STORY 3: FRANCE
 
We finish here in France. The United Nations has recognised French cuisine as a world monumen. Something that helps keep France French in an increasingly globalised world.  Our last Observer is a French chef who lives and works in another country that values its food.
 
Observer: Bruno Ménard, in Japan.
