When the first round of the long-awaited Geneva II peace talks concluded, it seemed like little had been achieved.

She sees grounds for optimism in the changing tone of debate, despite the continuing violence.

Traffic in the Indian capital, New Delhi, is infamously noisy. Anu Anand gets an earful when he investigates the popularity of the car horn there. As Indian motorists rip out their standard-issue horns for even more deafening models, he finds that some angry residents are taking matters into their own hands.
