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 : 2012-07-23

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.
