From the BBC World Service: As the Islamic holy month of Ramadan gets underway, we look at the significance of dates and the multi-billion dollar business of supplying those breaking their fasts. Plus, Ukraine gets a $15bn boost from the International Monetary Fund, and we hear about the class action launched in Indonesia by parents whose children died or were injured by contaminated cough syrup.
