Beyonce, Bosnia Headscarf Ban & Syrian Refugees

Beyonce's new single, Formation, stirs up controversy with reference to the Black Lives Matter movement

Beyonce's new single, Formation, has sparked controversy by making reference to the Black Lives Matter movement. She wowed the audience at the Superbowl with her performance on Sunday night - but was she right to use it as a platform for activism?

We hear from the Turkey Syria border, where thousands of migrants are being prevented from entering Turkey.

And, we hear from Bosnia, where around 2,000 women have protested against a ban on wearing Islamic headscarves in courts and other legal institutions
