Living in War-torn Aleppo in Syria

Inside Aleppo; Hajj tragedy; US food waste.

Aleppo is one of the main battlegrounds in Syria's war where fighting between government forces, rebels and IS militants is ongoing. Most of the city's population has fled but Syrian journalist Zaina Erhaim has decided to go back and live in her home town to give people around the world an insight into life in the city.

Saudi Arabia's King Salman has ordered a safety review for the Hajj pilgrimage after more than seven-hundred people died in a stampede near the holy city of Mecca. We hear from a crowd control expert.

In face of healthy living campaigns, Dr David Love at the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future says people are buying more fish... they're also throwing a lot of it away.
