Latest update : 2010-12-07

Elections fraud in Egypt, war against drugs in Brazil, and how to shame a subway flasher

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 : EGYPT
 
We begin today with the legislative elections in Egypt. Longtime president Hosni Mubarak's party was the big winner, virtually wiping out the opposition. They blamed widespread fraud and vote-rigging. Our Observer tells us about one case of ballot-stuffing - and says it's not a good sign for next year's presidential race.
 
Observer : Mohammed Al-Dahshan in Cairo.
 
STORY 2 : BRAZIL
 
Now to the favelas of Rio de Janeiro... and the Brazilian government's offensive against drug gangs there.
 
Observer : Pedro Serra followed one of the raids in the Vila Cruzeiro favela.
 
STORY 3 : USA
 
We finish today with a subway story...  from New York. Our Observer was riding the train, minding her own business, when she was confronted by a flasher. Instead of getting embarrassed and looking the other way, she decided she was not going to take it.
 
Observer : Nicola Briggs in New York City.
