Summary FRONTLINE MARSEILLESThe city of Marseille in France has won itself two very different accolades... it's this year's European Capital of Culture, but it's also one of Europe's murder capitals. On Tuesday's Dateline, Evan Williams looks at the murky world of drug wars and gang violence that exist alongside the chic beachfront neighbourhoods. He visits the city's most deprived high-rise housing estates, where armed drug gangs virtually control the streets. Some in these no-go zones are fighting back with protests demanding action, but the authorities know it's going to take much more than words to turn round years of decline.GAZA'S NEW MILLIONAIRESIt's an unlikely place for a property boom, but in Gaza, house prices have trebled in just four years. Its fast-growing population is virtually trapped on a small strip of land, with many buildings destroyed by conflict, and that means big competition for what's left. On Tuesday's Dateline, Seyi Rhodes meets some of the instant millionaires feeding the demand for high-end properties, but the gap between rich and poor is also building. He meets families at the bottom of the housing ladder, forced into poor quality homes in the districts most likely to come under attack. But there's also an underground world behind this story... the Israeli blockade means building materials have to be smuggled through tunnels under the Egyptian border, and that too has created new wealth.CHALKBOARD NEWSForget the internet and 24 hour news channels, people in Liberia get their information the old-fashioned way... written out by hand on a chalkboard in the capital Monrovia. It's the brainchild of a one-man news machine, Alfred J Sirleaf, who travels the streets finding stories for The Daily Talk, then writing them up on his board. Tuesday's Dateline follows him at work, and meets some of the passers-by who stop off to see what's happening in their community. And it's those visitors that also provide a glimpse into an impoverished country emerging from 14 years of civil war, but determined to turn itself around
