Five years ago in Pakistan the family home of journalist Kareem Khan was hit by a missile in a drone strike, killing his eldest son and his brother - he is now taking both the CIA and the Pakistani government to court.

In this year's Winter Olympics in Sochi three Canadian sisters from the Dufour-Lapointe family all competed in the freestyle skiing mogul finals. Two of them - Justine and Chloe - won gold and silver medals. They tell reporter Melanie Brown about the family fascination with skiing.

American Kurt Thometz runs a bookshop on the ground floor of his home in Harlem, New York. Its shelves are dedicated to works of African-American literature - a surprising outcome because Kurt was brought up to be racist. Outlook's reporter Matthew Nelson visits him in his intriguing little shop.

Irish novelist Hugo Hamilton tells Jo Fidgen about a trip he made to Berlin to fulfil the wishes of a dying friend. The famous writer, Nuala O'Faolin had just a few weeks left to live, and wanted to make one final journey. Hugo talks about his memories of that adventure and why he turned the experience into a novel.
