Syria: Solving the Unsolvable

28/02/2012 3:25 pm

Dr Harry Hagopian, the Bishops' Consultant on the Middle East

In today's two-part Middle East Analysis, we join Bishops' consultant Dr Harry Hagopian for a regional round-up and an in-depth look at the bloodshed in Homs, Syria. Is this a precursor to civil war in the country?

Part One

In this podcast we focus on the region as a whole and, in particular, take a close look at countries in transition. We start with the election of an interim president in Yemen, move on to tribal tensions in Libya and conclude by discussing post-election Egypt ahead of another round of voting - this time for a new president.

Duration: 15m 6s

Part Two

In this concluding part of today's podcast Dr Harry Hagopian looks at the escalation of violence in Syria - especially in the city of Homs.
