— NPR's Anne Garrels reports on the case of two British nurses accused of murder in Saudi Arabia. Both women have been charged with the murder of an Australian colleague. If convicted, one could face a death sentence, which is carried out as public beheading in Saudi Arabia, while the other woman faces imprisonment and 500 lashes. This is the first major diplomatic crisis for Britain's new Labor government since it came to power in May.
