We will start the show with the deadly commuter train crash in Belgium. There are reports that one train may have run a red light, causing the collision southwest of Brussels. We will have a live report.
We then take you to Kabul and the Pentagon for the latest on the international offensive now under way in Helmand province. Commanders are saying that the operation is going well. The challenge now is to hold the areas that are now clear of Taliban fighters.
We are also live in Haiti with new developments in the ten American missionaries accused of trying to abduct Haitian children out of Haiti.
Also, Jim Clancy is in Rome and will join us live to talk about the Pope's meeting with Irish bishops about the sex scandals in the Catholic Church there. I'll ask him why this event is significant and what it says about the way the Church plans on dealing with similar issues in the future.
And Marc McKay is with us again from Vancouver with the latest on the Winter Olympics. It was a good first day for the French!
