Dilemma in Damascus

Agonising decisions for Syrians, and other reporters' stories from the US, Brazil, Qatar and France. Presented by Kate Adie.

Despatches: Syrians, exhausted by a seemingly unending conflict, face agonising decisions over their future, Lyse Doucet. Misha Glenny's in Rio as violent protests continue less than two months before the Brazilian city hosts the World Cup. The far-right Front Nationale could emerge from next month's European elections as the best-supported party in France -- Emma Jane Kirby encounters Euroscepticism, verging on Europhobia, in the south of the country. Matthew Teller's in Qatar: its economy's growing at nearly twenty per cent a year but its people are finding it hard to cope with a rapid pace of change. And Simon Worrall in the United States hears a love song as he witnesses the annual migration of Hispanic workers to Long Island.
