Meeting 'cultural activist' and soprano Dima Bawab

This week, we introduce you to soprano Dima Bawab. A Jordanian citizen born to Palestinian parents, she has been singing since the tender age of four. Dima is now putting her vocal skills to good use by taking workshops and concerts to Palestinian people in the West Bank. The self-confessed cultural activist tells us more about her passion and her role through music.


Also, at a time when controversies were swirling at home, US President Donald Trump embarked on a tour of the Middle East. The trip was aimed at bolstering partnerships in the region - we take a closer look.

Plus, two years into Yemen's brutal conflict, we bring you rare footage of Riyadh's indiscriminate bombing campaign.
