Syria and Ethiopia

An estimated 200,000 men and women are being held in detention centres in war-torn Syria. Lyse Doucet meets two men with very different experiences of this system - one is a lawyer representing the detained, the other is an interrogator in a government-controlled prison. Are their hopes for Syria really so different?
London has its urban foxes, Delhi has monkeys, but the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa has a far more pernicious pest - the urban hyena. Martin Fletcher finds out about the threat they pose to the city's residents, and what can be done to contain them.
