We hear about the humanitarian situation in Deir ez Zour as US troops reportedly begin their withdrawal from the country.

As US troops reportedly begin their withdrawal from Syria, the UN has expressed fears for nearly 2,000 civilians trapped in the fight to oust IS from Deir ez Zour. We hear from UNHCR about the situation in the area.

Also, another arrest for the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei, this time in Poland for one of its directors on suspicion of spying. And we hear about the world's most dangerous commute - along the rails in the Philippines.
