Kurdish forces carry out risky demining operations in Mosul

Sun, 10/30/2016 - 17:02

This week, we focus on Iraq's second city of Mosul. Retreating Islamic State group militants have littered the surrounding villages with mines and explosives - we see how Kurdish forces are carrying out the demining operations. Meanwhile, from a secret location, an Iraqi radio station gives a voice to civilians who are trapped inside Mosul, but not silenced. Finally, we find out why towns in northern Syria are shedding Arabised names in favour of their traditional Kurdish ones.
