Christiane looks at the disqualification of candidates from next month's presidential election in Iran.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai is incredibly frank in his first interview since the massacre of 17 Afghan villagers last month and on the heels of the massive outbreak of spring fighting overnight. President Karzai originally called the attacks in Kandahar “intentional terror,” but today during his interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour he clarified reports about calling American soldiers “demons.” For the first time, Karzai laid out what he believes should happen to the American soldier charged with the massacre in Afghanistan.
Christiane Amanpour will host a new daily foreign affairs program on CNN International that will launch on Monday, April 16.
The 30-minute daily broadcast of Amanpour, will air weeknights at 2100 CET & 2300 and in Asia Tuesday-Saturday at 1700 HKT & 2200 HKT.

Mike The Magnificent! There was a beautiful tribute to journalist Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes. Stay until the end for his own poignant confessions to his grandson. We REALLY won't see the likes of Mike again. Swashbuckling through history on a staggering career of true genius. Humbling actually. http://cbsn.ws/IY3yw9
