France deals with the aftermath of an attack on police as the country prepares to vote. We ask Sylvain Courage, editor of the Nouvel Observateur, if it is likely to impact the outcome of the presidential election. And the BBC's Theo Leggett reports from the south of France on why farmers are unhappy with the political elite. Also in the programme, we hear from Ethiopia's prime minister, Hailemariam Desalegn, about how the country is dealing with a regional famine. Plus we bring together Charles Read of The Economist in London, and Mamta Badkar of the Financial Times in New York, to review the main business and economic stories of the past week.
