Dispute continues in East China Sea, the Cofan Nation of Ecaudor and Jews in Lithuania during WWII

The U.S. has advised commercial airlines not to fly over the new air defense zone that China has declared in the East China Sea. But the Obama administration says that's for safety reasons, not because it recognizes Chinese authority over the area. We'll find out why tensions remain high. In Ecuador the indigenous Cofan have rebounded after western explorers came and conquered their lands. We examine whats behind their successful restoration. Plus, we'll try to set the record straight on war crimes in Lithuania during World War II and how one organization is devoted to preserving the cultural history of Easter European Jewry.
