Spanish bank Sabadell says it has big plans for future growth after agreeing a $2.5bn takeover of UK lender TSB. If approved, it would be the latest in a string of acquisitions at home and abroad. So just how did Sabadell weather a financial storm that left many other Spanish banks in near ruins? We speak to Sabadell chairman Josep Oliu. Plus, as the EU maintains sanctions on Russia over the fighting in eastern Ukraine, we have reflections from citizens on both sides of the border. And in our Friday round-up of the week's biggest stories we cover the Tunis museum attack, Greece, and One Direction with Charles Forelle, of the Wall Street Journal in London, and Matthew Bishop, of the Economist in New York.
