Lebanese cuisine: Traditional dishes and drinks during Ramadan

We're joined in the studio by renowned chef Karim Haidar, who founded the Academy of Arab Cuisine here in Paris. He tell us about the dishes that are served during the holy Muslim month of Ramadan to break the day's fast. We also find out how his recipes reflect the medley of Lebanese society.

Also, we focus on Gaza, which recently marked ten years under the rule of Hamas. Today, analysts say the Palestinian enclave is at risk of conflict while facing power blackouts, poverty, plus a land, sea and air blockade imposed by Israel.

Finally, Myriam Rawick was only eight years when she started keeping a diary about her terrifying experiences during the war in Syria. Now aged 13, her diary has been translated from Arabic and published here in France. We take you to meet her in Paris.
