Then: millions in Kazakhstan are tuning into the trial of a former government minister accused of murdering his wife. We ask whether the case could be a game-changer for domestic violence in the country. Finally, we look at the deteriorating security situation in Ecuador and this week’s edition of ‘The Global Countdown’ heads to the Netherlands.
