Please Don't Kill My Boy

Reports from writers and journalists around the world, including a wave of executions in Indonesia and despatches from Tunisia, Mexico, India and Senegal. Presented by Kate Adie.

Around the world with correspondents' stories. In this edition: executions in Indonesia - the authorities believe they will help counter a national drug emergency. Security forces in Tunisia crack down on Islamist hardliners -- most people there insist they don't want ISIS or other militants gaining a foothold in their country; the president of Mexico has been on a state visit to Britain -- at home he faces continuing anger about the disappearance last year of 43-students; the Indian prime minister has promised a huge cash boost for the railways which are becoming ever more decrepit and dangerous and we hear about the 'marabouts' or holy men of Muslim west Africa. Theirs is an ancient tradition but these days they are quite happy to dispense advice via email, Twitter and Skype.
