The full story - correspondents with despatches from around the world. Today: from Bangkok, scene of a devastating bomb attack earlier in the week, it's the smallest detail which makes the deepest impression; there's a visit to the coastline of Somalia where a thriving piracy industry has been closed down but myriad problems still remain; we're in the Panamanian highlands talking about cocoa beans -- the experts may not be entirely convinced that eating chocolate is good for you, but there's no doubt the business is proving beneficial to the economy of that central American nation; we examine Sri Lanka's relationship with the sweet heart of the country, otherwise known as the coconut and our reporter sweats and strains in the shop where Andy Warhol and generations of New York rockers have gone shopping for their leather trousers and other stage gear
