Obama points to how Saudis must change

Saudi Arabia is rapidly becoming less popular in the US. Less important too?

President Obama visited Saudi Arabia at a time when its reputation has rarely been lower. The Saudis have their gripes with the US too. And with oil prices at rock-bottom - is Saudi Arabia still crucial? Also in this programme/podcast: Indonesia confronts its grisly past - 50 years on; dementia figures suggest some unexpected hope; and Pope Francis shows the way for Europe by taking refugees into the Vatican. Will Europeans follow his example?
