Description

At least 21 people have been killed a fresh wave of anti-government protests in Iraq that has descended into violence. Reports say half of the victims were killed while trying to storm a militia group's offices in two southern cities. Protesters are demanding more jobs, better public services and an end to corruption.

Also in the programme: Vietnamese families fear their loved-ones may be among the 39 people whose bodies were found in a refrigerated truck in the UK; and how an explosive growth in off-shore wind power could help achieve a carbon zero future.
