Prosecutors in France are reported to have widened their investigation into the financial affairs of the centre-right presidential candidate, Francois Fillon. They're already probing reports his wife earned €500,000 as her husband's parliamentary assistant, despite doubts about the work she did. Also in the programme, anti-government protests in Romania grow. And could an acrimonious phone-call between Donald Trump and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull represent a souring in relations?
