'Age old cities' exhibition: A virtual tour of the Middle East's landmarks

Ancient cities destroyed by war are brought back to life, thanks to state-of-the art virtual reality. A new exhibition at the Arab World Institute in Paris shines a spotlight on Aleppo, Palmyra and Mosul. Richelle Harrison Plesse speaks to the curator of the exhibition, Aurélie Clemente-Ruiz.


Meanwhile, in Yemen, landmines are proving a hidden danger. The country is already suffering from cholera, famine, and a Saudi-led bombing campaign. These explosive deadly traps are adding to the misery.

And a symbol of Lebanon is at risk. The country's ancient cedar trees are revered and sacred, but increasingly under threat from climate change. Conservationists are sounding the alarm.
