So what are you up to these days, Bob?

A red-faced BBC apologised for requesting an interview with Bob Marley, the Jamaican reggae legend who died 24 years ago.

In a statement, the BBC said: "We are obviously very embarrassed that we didn't realise that the letter to the Marley Foundation did not acknowledge that Mr Marley is no longer with us."

A BBC press officer, contacted by AFP in London on Friday, confirmed that the gaffe was not an April Fool's joke
