The move to exclude ZTE and Huawei brings Canada in line with its intelligence partners in the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand. We ask Canadian technology journalist Takara Small why the country took a long time to impose the ban. Also in the programme, food delivery drivers in the United Arab Emirates have been on strike, concerned at the rising price of petrol. We find out more from the BBC's Sameer Hashmi.
