Week in review: Pakistan, Iran and human rights in China

Carla Robbins of The New York Times and Gideon Rose of Foreign Affairs magazine join Martin Savidge to discuss the week’s top stories.

They discuss political protests and violence in Pakistan that has threatened to distract the government from its fight against al-Qaeda and Taliban militants. They also assess developments in Iran, which moved closer to starting its first nuclear reactor, and discuss China’s war of words with the U.S. over human rights.
