Episode 192 of 818 episodes

Did you ever see bin Laden? Aleem Maqbool is in Abbottabad, Pakistan, where they've been bulldozing the compound where the al-Qaeda leader was killed by US special forces. The German public appears to be tiring of rescue packages for Greece and Steve Evans in Berlin has been hearing it's not easy being a Greek in today's Germany. David Loyn is in the Indian state of Bihar hearing the arguments for and against Britain's aid for India. Hugely increased fees at UK universities mean that more British students than ever before are enrolling in foreign places of learning. Sanchia Berg's to Harvard in the US. And Tom Burridge is in Barcelona where the regional politicians feel they're getting a raw deal from Madrid.
