Tuvalu rep in Copenhagen spawns unprecedented walk-out

Tuvalu has caused quite a stir at the UN climate change talks in Copenhagen with the island's representative pleading with delegates to come up with a legally binding agreement, then in an unprecedented move stormed-out, closing the session until the afternoon.

Tuvalu's call comes as divisions between the countries attending the Copenhagen talks deepen. Its representative, Ian Fry, called for an amendment which would potentially force deeper global emission cuts and lead to other developing countries - rather than just rich nations - having to make those cuts.

It divided those attending the daily Conference of Parties and forced the chair to call recess.

Presenter: Geraldine Coutts
Speaker: Protestors of environmental organisations Tck Tck Tck, Greenpeace and 350.org; Ian Fry, Tuvalu representative at the UN climate change talks; Selwin Hart, Barbados representative; Fijian environmental activist
