THE WORLD THIS WEEK - Friday, January, 21th (part 2)

People across the Arab world have a "malicious grin", and François Picard’s panel knows why.

On the set :

  • Alison SMALE, Editorial Director, International Herald Tribune
  • Samir AITA, Chief Editor, Edition Arabe - Le Monde Diplomatique, President of Le Cercle des Economistes Arabes
  • Edward CODY, Paris correspondent, Washington Post
  • A. Craig COPETAS, Senior writer, Bloomberg News
