Protests planned in Pakistan over blasphemy laws

Religious parties in Pakistan are planning protests this weekend against any attempts to change the country's blasphemy laws.

The laws, which mean anyone convicted of insulting Islam can be punished, have been brought into focus by the case of a Christian woman, Asia Bibi, who has been sentenced to death.
