Another US Journalist Murdered By ISIS

Listen in pop-out player

As another US journalist is apparently murdered by Islamic militants, we ask eminent American counter terrorism strategist, Doctor Nora Bensahel, from the Center for a New American Security: what can President Obama do to combat Islamic extremism?

Samira Hussein reports from Detroit, where confirmation hearings for the city's bankruptcy are underway.

We hear from British workers' rights researcher Andy Hall, on trial in Thailand for defamation over a report he contributed to last year. He faces years in prison if found guilty.

Plus, the BBC's Rajini Vaidyanathan meets the beekeepers of Wisconsin, where a decline in the bee population could mark a downturn in the state economy.

We are joined by militant researcher Jose Martin in our New York bureau, and at our Singapore studio, we hear from David Kuo of The Motley Fool.
