Summary RESOURCE RAGE Papua New Guinea's Prime Minister recently agreed to the country's biggest ever business deal - a $16 billion plan to extract and export gas. But landowners and residents living near the proposed gas plant and pipeline are literally up in arms over fears they'll lose some of their land and see few of the benefits. Many of them already live without power and access to modern facilities, like hospitals and schools, and they say other oil and gas projects nearby have brought them very little. The issue has already turned violent with four deaths in a dispute over land, and attempts to slow down the project by cutting down power lines and blocking roads. Video journalist Amos Roberts travels deep into the Southern Highlands to uncover who's getting what from the huge gas project. SWORN VIRGINS Blood feuds might sound like something from the distant past, but in Albania they've become a major problem with thousands of lives lost in the past 20 years, and many more blighted by their consequences. In one of the most extreme cases found by video journalist Nick Lazaredes, a 90-year-old woman has been forced to live as a 'sworn virgin' man for 78 years. Qamile Stema's father died in a vendetta, and with no male heirs, she had to become the family's male role model. Nick also meets a family imprisoned in their own home for fear of revenge attacks, after the father shot and wounded a former neighbour. And he films as a mediator works to reconcile feuding families and bring an end to the eye-for-an-eye cycle of violence. INTERVIEW WITH SABRIA JAWHAR For many westerners at least, the sight of a woman fully covered in a burqa, or wearing a niqab with only her eyes showing, can be an unnerving sight. And now across Europe, a polarising debate has consumed mainstream politics. Last month, Belgium's lower house voted unanimously for a ban on wearing full Islamic veils in public spaces, and French politicians have cited security reasons for considering a similar ban. French President Nicolas Sarkozy declared the burqa is not welcome in France, and has branded the face-covering, body-length gown as a symbol of women's oppression. But that's certainly not the view of Saudi Arabian writer Sabria Jawhar, who's adamant she doesn't want western lawmakers telling her what she can or can't wear. George Negus speaks to her from the UK, where she's currently studying. International current affairs hosted by George Negus. (An SBS Production) CC WS.
