A city trader jailed for Britain's biggest bank fraud says crimes like his could happen again. Kweku Adoboli spoke to the BBC's Kamal Ahmed in his first broadcast interview, and Bill Black, professor of economics and law at the University of Missouri, tells us that he thinks the industry is still very much at risk. Also in the programme, the Indian government has been handing out food parcels to 10,000 workers stranded in Saudi Arabia. Margherita Stancati reports on Saudi Arabia for the Wall Street Journal, and explains more about the workers' plight. Plus, as the executive chairman of advertising giant Saatchi and Saatchi is suspended over comments he made about the ambitions of women in the industry, Claire Beale of Campaign magazine tells us why so many in advertising were incensed by what he said.
