The murder of newly-married Michaela McAreavey on the honeymoon island of Mauritius is one of the most high-profile, unsolved cases in the world.

Yet still, 10 years on, Mauritian authorities have failed to bring her killer, or killers, to justice. Following the botched original investigation and the shambolic court case that saw the acquittal of two men, what can the government do now they have vowed to look at the murder files again?

Investigative journalist Donal MacIntyre joins this episode of Crime World Extra to discuss murder in paradise and our own journey to Mauritius which uncovered the grinding poverty that lies at the heart of this most tragic killings, the failings of the original inquiry and the opportunities of ever solving the case.
