Over the week-end, Iran said it would start construction on ten new nuclear plants, incensing Western powers who wanted Iran to stop enriching uranium altogether.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will speak today. We will go live to Tehran for more on what the Iranian leader says and what message he wants to send to the West this time.
Also today, we will bring you the latest on the aftermath of Dubai's financial crisis. Gulf markets had their first opportunity to react to the news that Dubai is asking to delay its massive debt repayments.
We will then go to Germany for a live report on the John Demjanjuk Nazi war crimes trial.
And we are live in Florida for the latest on the Tiger Woods car crash that has sparked so much speculation around the world. Tabloid rumors and public curiosity has turned this story into a global talking point. We cover all the angles.
And, here's hoping technology cooperates, because we are planning to be live in the Himalayas for more on the impact of global warming on glaciers in that part of the world, as we approach next month's climate change conference in Copenhagen.
And all the day's other top developing stories, as always.
