Summary THE TOUGHEST BEATDeadly attacks in Afghanistan have become so commonplace, they rarely make international headlines any more, but for the people living there, they remain a constant threat to the future of their country. As Afghanistan faces new tensions surrounding the weekend's Presidential elections, Steve Chao reports for Tuesday's Dateline from the country's assassination capital, Kandahar. The city is the Taliban's spiritual birthplace, but despite all the efforts to find peace, it still sees more killings than the whole of the rest of the Afghanistan. Steve meets Police Chief Abdul Raziq, who's survived 21 attempts on his life, but is still determined to turn Kandahar around. And there's the city governor who's dodged nine tries to assassinate him... his office desk peppered with bullet holes from a recent narrow escape. But with Western troops already starting to leave and hand over control, how secure is Afghanistan's future really going to be?SHARK!The recent shark attacks off the coast of Western Australia have sparked huge protests over moves to cull the creatures. But on the other side of the Indian Ocean, the outlying French island of La Reunion has had the opposite response, with overwhelming support for a shark cull. There have been 13 attacks there in the past three years, five of them fatal, prompting authorities to ban swimming and surfing on most of the island. For an island so reliant on tourism, it means the efforts to reduce the number of sharks and get the beaches open again can't come quickly enough. On Tuesday's Dateline, David O'Shea looks at the effect the attacks have had on this island community, and he follows the complex operation to tame the might of the sharks.RWANDA'S HOPEIt's 20 years since the horrific slaughter of almost a million people in Rwanda. The brutal attacks by Hutu militia against Tutsis shocked the world, with appalling pictures of the bloodshed captured by TV news crews. Mark Austin was one of those reporters sent to Rwanda at the time and now he's returned to mark the anniversary. What he finds is a remarkable story of hope to come out of the tragedy, through a controversial program bringing killers and survivors together to try and find forgiveness. And as the next generation comes of age, he sees the efforts to learn from the appalling events of the past and look ahead to what this nation hopes will be a better future.WE ARE HAPPYIt's the infectious song that everyone is singing at the moment... Pharrell Williams' Happy. The original video has had over 167 million views on YouTube and prompted people in towns and cities around the world to make their own versions of the dance hit. There are now over 1,000 different videos and on Tuesday's Dateline we'll be featuring an excerpt from one of them... Libreville, the capital of Gabon in west Africa. Like all the remakes, it's a light-hearted view of life in the city with people mouthing the words of the song and dancing along in different locations... all with the same 'Happy' message
