Correspondents' stories from around the world: a field day for conspiracy theorists as the White House stumbles in a fog of political scandal; Libya's second city Benghazi's unstable, violent and there's uncertainty there over the presence and degree of influence of radical Islamists; as France slips back into recession, there's a trip to Lot-et-Garonne in the south west where they have their own ideas about how to cope in times of economic difficulty; to the holiday islands of The Seychelles to find out why there are Somali pirates there practising their football skills. And it's noisy, dirty, the poverty's shocking, the traffic awful. So why is it so hard to say goodbye to Mumbai?
