Yemen conflict: What is Saudi Arabia's strategy?

Last week, the coalition led by Saudi Arabia formally ended its nearly month-long air campaign in Yemen. Reports on the ground, though, say that air strikes are continuing. What exactly is Riyadh's strategy and overarching goal in Yemen?


Meanwhile, in Syria, the al Qaeda-affiliated al Nusra Front appears to be making a comeback. This as its biggest rival, the Islamic State group, is losing ground due to US-led coalition air strikes.

Also, in Jordan, there's hope for Syrian refugees who have lost limbs in the long-running conflict. A new technology could provide amputees with customised prosthetic limbs for a fraction of the current price. Our correspondents in Amman tell us more.

Finally, in Lebanon, we meet a male choreographer and dancer who is challenging gender stereotypes, creating a new approach to Egyptian folk dance.
