Spat over Iran's UN ambassador hampers thawing of relations with US

This week, Iran files a complaint against the US at the UN, saying that the rejection of its UN envoy goes against international law. Next, Iraqi families who had fled fighting are left with little option as holidaymakers cause rents to rocket where they had taken refuge. And we meet an Olympian denied the right to run in his homeland amid tensions between Israel and the Palestinians.

Finally, we take you to Jordan, where the French Institute is organising "French Gastronomy Week".
