Egyptian doctors help Libyan protesters, Women demonstrate against Ivory Coast's Gbagbo and Russia's Putin faces growing opposition

This week, our Observers bring us to eastern Libya, where Egyptians doctors rushed to help injured anti-government protesters. Next stop: the Ivory Coast, where female Ouattara supporters defied Gbagbo's soldiers. Finally to Russia, where opposition protesters are calling for Putin's resignation.

Presentation: Derek Thomson. Editorial team: Julien Pain, Lorena Galliot, Ségolène Malterre, Sarra Grira, Peggy Bruguière and Paul Larrouturou.

STORY 1: Egypt

As Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi strengthened his grip on the country’s capital, a group of Egyptian physicians has begun sending out convoys transporting medical aid and doctors to help insurgents in the east of the country.

Observer: Dr. Ehab Mesallum in Cairo

STORY 2: Ivory Coast

For the past four months, the Ivory Coast has been paralysed by a violent political crisis opposing outgoing president Laurent Gbagbo and his rival Alassane Ouattara. Despuite the danger, a group of Female Ouattara supporters in Abidjan decided to go out into the street to call for Gbagbo's departure.

Observer: Aurosita in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

STORY 3: Russia

In Russia, where there is a tight lid on freedom of expression, openly criticizing Prime Minister Putin is no east task. Nevertheless, our Observer was among those who dared march to the Kremlin last week to call for his resignation.

Observer: Roman Dobrokhotov in central Moscow.
