The State of the Union: EU executive under fire over Oettinger's racial slur

State of the Union is euronews’ weekly round-up of the top stories from the past seven days.

In this episode: the European Commission has a week to forget. Germany’s Gunther Oettinger finally apologises for calling Chinese officials “slitty-eyed”; an EU ethics probe, chaired by Commission staff, clears former president Jose Manuel Barroso of wrongdoing by taking a job at Goldman Sachs, and the Jungle refugee camp is cleared by French authorities.

Every story can be told in many ways: see the perspectives from Euronews journalists in our other language teams.
