Here's a look at stories we plan to cover tomorrow:

BRITAIN-COUNTERFEIT GOODS — In a warehouse at London's Heathrow airport, an officer pulls open a cardboard box he suspects is filled with contraband goods. His instincts are rewarded — it's packed with sneakers that look identical to the limited edition Adidas Yeezy Boost, designed by rap star Kanye West.

By Lynne O'Donnell. UPCOMING: 1,000 words, photos, video by 1000 GMT.

FRANCE-ELECTION-WHAT VOTERS WANT — An unusual, hand-written sign invited market-goers in the down-and-out town of Crepy-En-Valois, north of Paris, to make their voices heard ahead of a pivotal presidential election. "What should be changed in France in 2017?" it asked. Voters' answers were suspended for passersby to see. They reflected the key concerns, hopes and tensions in the campaign for the April-May election: jobs, immigration, discrimination, bleak prospects for French youth. By Nicolas Garriga. UPCOMING: 400 words, photos, video by 1200 GMT.

SPAIN-MOBILE FAIR — The latest technology and the best of mobile telecommunications' industry will gather for the annual Barcelona Mobile World Congress. By Nick Jesdanun and Alex Oller. UPCOMING: Photos, video, text.
