Greece is reportedly warned it faces suspension from the Schengen passport-free travel area. The Financial Times's Brussels bureau chief Peter Spiegel fills us in on the details. Also in the programme we take the economic temperature of the Greek economy, with the BBC's Simon Jack who is at an international investment conference in Athens. Meanwhile close to 200 people have been killed in Chennai, India, as the city faces its heaviest monsoon rains for more than a century. We bring you an update from there. Plus we have a report on the prospects for robotic submarines aiding in the cleanup of nuclear waste. And we hear from Iceland, where a new religion, Zuism, which offers a tax refund to its members, has signed up thousands of new followers.
