An American contradiction

Looking around a marijuana farm with a local leader of the far-right Proud Boys. Kate Adie introduces this and other stories from correspondents around the world.

The Proud Boys say they are nothing more than a fraternal drinking club, but they regularly show up armed to far-right rallies across the US. On a marijuana farm in Oregon, Mike Wendling meets one of their local leaders – a man who, in between stints farming weed, survives on government disability benefits while also agitating for an end to all forms of welfare.

Kate Adie introduces this and other stories from correspondents around the world:

Sahar Zand has an unsettling visit to the Museum of Jihad in Afghanistan.

Sian Griffiths skates across the world’s largest naturally-frozen ice rink and hears what impact rising temperatures are having on the outdoor skating season in Canada.

Martin Vennard joins an old boys' club in Bangladesh.

And Rob Crossan delves beneath the usual tourist traps in Tenerife and explores the volcanic subterranean tunnels which are home to the world’s ugliest invertebrate: a mutant with no wings or eyes.
