Anger as BBC cuts services

About 650 jobs will go as broadcaster chops 32 of its foreign language stations.

    After months of speculation international broadcaster the BBC has confirmed plans to close five of its 32 World Service language stations.

    Up to 650 jobs will be lost from a workforce of 2,400 over the next three years. And the downsizing has been met by harsh criticism from some.
