Martin Dolan09:05 One year anniversary of the disappearance of MH370

The head of the Australian agency leading the search explains why he's cautiously optimistic they'll find the aircraft debris on the sea floor.

It's one year ago this Sunday since Malaysian airlines flight MH370 disappeared without a trace, carrying 239 passengers and crew. The Boeing 777 was on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing when it vanished, starting a massive search in the Indian Ocean, first for surface debris, then a far more in-depth search involving planes, radar and mapping of the seabed. In October, a painstaking deep sea search of a priority area of the seafloor began, and so far over 40% has been covered. Australia, China and Malaysia are now discussing whether to call off the search and a decision could be made within weeks. The head of the search is Martin Dolan, Chief Commissioner of the Australian Transportation Safety Board, who still feels cautious optimism.

10:05 India's rape culture

sonia faleiro photo by Ulrik R McKnightIn her latest book, 13 Men, award-winning Indian-born journalist and author, Sonia Faleiro investigates one of her country's high profile rape cases, in which it was alleged a 20-year-old was gang raped under orders of the village council for falling in love with an outsider. Sonia Faleiro travelled to the isolated village in West Bengal and interviewed the victim as well as local villagers and the village council and found the media coverage of the story had been in many cases wrong, and the issues were far more complex than many realised.

Sonia Faleiro has previously delved into the murky world of Bombay's dance bars and has written for Vogue India, India Today and the New York Times. She a co-founder of Deca, a global journalists cooperative that creates long-form stories to read on mobile devices.
