The ongoing civil war in Syria has been covered extensively in the media, with the Free Syrian Army, Bashar al-Assad's forces and the myriad of jihadi groups dominating the headlines. Meanwhile, one ethnic group, the Kurds, goes largely unmentioned as it tries to carve out its own state in the four countries where its people live: Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria. While they've had some success gaining autonomy in Iraq, Kurds in the Western-most tip of Syria are using the chaos of the civil war to gain their own little statelet. Thomas Morton goes to the frontline of the battle for a Kurdish state to follow the story of this forgotten group.

Believed to cure a spectrum of ailments from colds to cancers, rhino horn has been coveted in Eastern medicine for centuries. While demand curtailed in the wake of international efforts to curb the wildlife trade, there's been a severe resurgence of rhino poaching recently, with killings increasing 5,000% over the past seven years. Pound-for-pound, rhino horn now goes for more on the black market than gold or cocaine. Vikram Gandhi traces the trade from Southern Africa to Vietnam to understand this illicit phenomenon.
