Texas death row killer 'forgiven by survivor'

In 2001, Mark Stroman attacked three men, killing two of them, in a rage directed at anyone he considered an "Arab" in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

Stroman was given the death penalty for his crime, and is due to be executed by lethal injection on 20 July.

Rais Bhuyian was the only survivor of the attack, blinded in his right eye after being shot in the face - but he has been campaigning to save Stroman's life.

Alastair Leithead reports from Texas.
