The World This Week - July 20th, 2012

We focus on the deepening strife in Syria after a week of raging street battles in the capital Damascus for the first time in the country's 17-month uprising. How hard will Assad strike back? We also take stock of the latest fiascos to beset the Olympics Games' organisers a week before the opening ceremony, and ask how London's mayor manages to stay so upbeat.
