Syrians risk their lives to film IS group atrocities

This week, we meet Syrians who risk their lives filming public executions by jihadists and sneaking the footage out to foreign journalists. Also, 200 Yazidis are freed after being held hostage by the Islamic State group in Iraq. The reasons for their release remain unclear. Finally, thousands of Egyptians turn out to pay their last respects to film legend Faten Hamama. She died at the age of 83 after a career that spanned decades.
