These are the stories we are following:

In world news:

• Correspondent Simon Montlake questions the fate of Sri Lanka's Tamil minorities after the defeat of the Tamil Tigers rebel group. What about their fight for a Tamil homeland?

• In his speech from Cairo University yesterday, President Obama said one nation should not impose a system of government on others. But what does this mean for US foreign policy?

• Correspondent Mark Rice-Oxley reports on early voting for the European Parliament in Britain. With two nations and 375 million voters, the Euro-elections are one of the largest in the world, second only to India’s. But this year’s elections more closely resemble midterm elections, giving voters a chance to let their national governments know what they think of them.

• As Prime Minister Vladimir Putin tamps down a worker revolt over wages and a dire economic picture, correspondent Fred Weir wonders if Putin has opened a Pandora’s box by raising the expectations of disgruntled workers across Russia.
