An eye on war-torn Yemen through the lens of Thana Faroq

Yemeni photographer Thana Faroq escaped the conflict in her country two years ago. Now living in the Netherlands, she is working on "The Passport", a project that documents the experiences of those who are hindered by their travel documents. She tells us more about her photographs and upcoming photo book.

Meanwhile, since a blockade led by Saudi Arabia in 2017, Qatar has been looking for other resources. John Dore, a 58-year-old Irish farmer, is successfully helping the country to import thousands of cows. Our correspondents Sylvain Lepetit and Marwan Chahine went to meet him.

Finally, Egypt has been witnessing an uptick in tourism, particularly travellers from France. According to the French Union of Tour Operators, figures jumped 146 percent over a period of 12 months. It's good news for Egypt as the tourism industry is a key source of hard currency for the nation. Our colleagues from France 2 report, with Delano D’Souza.
