The Emir Of Qatar Hands Power To His Son20130625We speak to people in Qatar about Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani stepping aside.
The Emir of Qatar has stepped aside after ruling for 18 years.
Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani has handed power to his 33-year-old son, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, saying it's time for the emirate to turn over a new leaf. "Our youth have proved in recent years that they are resolute people, that they comprehend the spirit of the times and participate in it."
A peaceful handover is a rarity for the Gulf, where most rulers remain in power for decades.
Sheikh Hamad saw Qatar transform from a tiny Gulf state to an influential global player. Known as "London's landlord", his trophy assets include Harrods and The Shard in the UK. Qatar also funded rebels in Libya and is now doing the same in Syria.
At 17:00 GMT, we'll hear from people in Qatar. What would you like to ask them?

Is There Anything Wrong With Spying On Your Allies?20131028Is there anything wrong with spying on your allies?
According to leaked documents it's been revealed that the US National Security Agency secretly monitored 60 million phone calls in Spain in one month. We also know that they listened in to the German Chancellor's mobile phone calls for a decade and only last week the French Newspaper, Le Monde reported that the agency collected some 70 million French phone records between last December and January. It's also been reported, a US listening unit was based in its Berlin embassy - and similar operations were replicated in 80 locations around the world.
How Do Countries Spy On Each Other?20131029Diplomatic relations between America and its allies continue to show strain after revelations of large-scale intelligence gathering on citizens, and the interception of some leaders' phones.
But how do agencies like the National Security Agency gather such large quantities of information?

World Have Your Say [World Service]Should India Be Trying To Go To Mars? ; M23 To End Drc Insurgency20131105Should India be trying to go to Mars? India has successfully launched a spacecraft to Mars - with the aim of becoming the fourth space agency to reach the Red Planet. The mission is costing $72m, which is considered to be comparatively cheap, but some commentators have still questioned whether a country with one of the highest rankings for childhood malnutrition in the world should be spending such money on a space mission.
Also, where does the future lie for the Democratic Republic of Congo? The M23 rebel group in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo says it's ending its insurgency, hours after the government claimed military victory. The movement has said it will adopt "purely political means" to achieve its goals.

What Do You Look For In A Mayor?20131106Bill de Blasio has been elected as mayor of New York. Awaiting him is an international profile and a budget of 70 billion dollars. One voter says of the New Mayor: "When I look at Mr de Blasio, I see a bright light at the end of the tunnel," De Blasio won this election in a landslide victory and his voters know that his role is not merely symbolic, he CAN make a difference. Another elected mayor making the headlines is Toronto's mayor Rob Ford whose approval ratings have jumped up despite him admitting to taking crack cocaine in a "drunken stupor". He has refused to quit his position and says he intends to re run for election in 2014.

Should We Be Forced To Act On Climate Change?20140331Do we need to be made to do something about climate change? A major UN report released today says that global warming is likely to have a "severe, pervasive and irreversible" impact; floods, droughts, heatwaves and wildfires are likely to become commonplace. But the warnings are only increasing in severity; meanwhile what actions have historically been agreed to have been torn up or abandoned. So should people been forced to change their behaviour for the sake of the planet? Or it is about governments having to do something? And if so, is that compatible with their need to be re-elected?
