Gunman's supporters demonstrate

Protesters in Pakistan have been holding demonstrations in support of the gunman who shot dead the former governor of Punjab, Salman Taseer.

Mumtaz Qadri is awaiting trial following the assassination on 4 January.

Qadri says he was angered by the governor's backing for proposed amendments to the country's blasphemy laws.

Orla Guerin says he is regarded as a hero by some.
