THE WORLD THIS WEEK

Our panel of Paris-based journalists review the week’s international news: the stories that made the headlines and also those you may have missed! Join us every Friday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2012-03-05

The World this Week - March 2nd, 2012

French journalists make it safely home from Homs, but there are fears for those still trapped as the Red Cross is barred from entering Baba Amr. The Iranian elections pit conservatives against each other, with reformists either banned from or boycotting the poll. And in the French presidential campaign, François Hollande tries to boost support by announcing he would double the top tax rate.

Finally, the race for the Republican nomination is still on, with Mitt Romney only narrowly winning in Michigan ahead of Super Tuesday.
