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.
