#WHYS: Oscar Pistorius murder charge / Whose job is it to modernise religion?

Duration:
55 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 14 February 2013

Oscar Pistorius has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp who was found dead in his home last night. We get reaction to this breaking story from around the world.

And, ten Jewish women were arrested on Monday by Israeli police for praying at Jerusalem's Western Wall - while wearing prayer shawls and traditional skullcaps. Orthodox rules, which govern prayers at the site, say only men can dress this way. We ask who decides when religion should modernise.
