THE WORLD THIS WEEK

THE WORLD THIS WEEK

Latest update : 2010-12-07

Wikileaks, a bomb effect?

Is a quarter of a million leaked cables to and from the US State Department helpful to democracy? Journalism? Diplomacy? Were the revelations surprising? Or just confirmation of what we already knew? Meanwhile Ivory Coast is on a knife edge. Both sides declare victory following the first elections in ten years. Is the country on the brink of civil war? Finally, minus 20 degrees in 2018, plus 50 degrees in 2022! Was FIFA right to choose Russia and Qatar as World Cup hosts?

    With our guests:

    Matthew SALTMARSH, Reporter, International Herald Tribune
    George KAZOLIAS, News Producer at AITV-RFO, Professor at the American University of Paris
    Regis LE SOMMIER, Co-Editor in Chief, Paris Match, Author of "L’Irak n’existe plus"
    David CLARK, Paris Deputy Bureau Chief, AFP
