(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service… With the book closed on US midterm elections, we’ll run through the latest numbers and take you to Madagascar where voters are heading to the polls today in one of the world’s most expensive presidential elections per voter.  Then, to India where the Hindu festival of Diwali starts today. But celebrations are dampened somewhat after the country’s supreme court passed its first ever national restriction on fireworks that have caused air pollution levels to spike. We’ll take you there and hear how revellers and business owners are dealing with the changes. (11/07/2018)
