Syrian rebels run towns without Assad

We begin in Qusayr, a Syrian city where the rebels in charge have set up a police force and are trying to manage formerly state-run facilities like the local hospital. Next, we head to the Rafah border crossing to gauge opinion on Egypt’s new president, who recently sealed off several tunnels that once connected his country with Gaza. Finally, meet some of the 25 Israeli athletes participating at the London Paralympics.
