Listen in pop-out player

This week, we look at the controversial Twitter campaign led by Armenians - #SaveKessab. It's been tweeted more than 100,000 times - mainly in the US, where it's been given a boost by celebrity endorsement, including Kim Kardashian and Cher.

But, as we hear, some Syrians are unhappy about the campaign.

We speak to the man who started a Twitter campaign in Ethiopia, aimed at highlighting how restrictive state media is there. And why is the internet so obsessed with goats? Answers from an expert. And a goat!

This week's programme is presented by Anne-Marie Tomchak. She is joined in the studio by Paul Brown from BBC Monitoring, Mahmoud Ali Hamad from BBC Arabic and Mike Wendling.
