    This week’s program starts off by talking about the conflicting reports concerning a supposedly violent riot that took place in the Eritrean capital of Asmara.

    Then it addresses the diplomatic spat between Berlin and Warsaw after the Germany Defense Minister said that her country should support the "democratic resistance of the young generation" in Poland. After that, we discuss the implications of Venezuela's impending debt crisis. Once that's done, we take a look at the significance of the Houthi missile strike on Riyadh and Saudi Arabia's response in blockading Yemen. And finally, our top story of the week is how Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman "drained the swamp" by detaining corrupt pro-American royals who posed a threat to his future kingship.

    We'd love to get your feedback at radio@sputniknews.com
