Sectarian divide in Israel

Last week, we told you about the nasty sectarian battle brewing in Israel between ultra-Orthodox extremists and more moderate religious Jews. Well as Kevin Flower reports, the debate definitely isn’t going away.

North Korea: Living in Fear

North Korean state media have broadcast images of a grief-stricken nation. But we wanted to find out how ordinary North Koreans feel about their nation's future. Senior International Correspondent Stan Grant found a North Korean living in the Chinese border city of Dandong who spoke frankly about what life is really like in the so-called Hermit Kingdom.

An inside look at technology in North Korea

 

North Korea's technological infrastructure is quite limited. Cell phones are only for the wealthy and you can't even call outside the country. We talked with technology researcher Martyn Williams about how tightly controlled communications are in North Korea.

The Death Toll from Tropical Storm Washi soars in the Philippines

 The Philippines is burying its dead and struggling to recover. Tropical storm Washi (known locally as Sendong) hit the southern portion of the country over the weekend, killing more than a thousand people and leaving thousands more homeless.  The storm triggered flash floods and sent massive logs down hillsides, which flattened everything in their path. There’s speculation that illegal logging contributed to the devastation.

Back|Story producers Chris and Nadia talked to Mari Ramos and Taylor at the CNN World Weather Center about the storm’s path and why it did so much damage.

Images of Iraq and the stories behind them

Nine years after it began, the war in Iraq has come to a close.  But the images from that conflict continue to tell a powerful and dramatic story of a country going through an enormous evolution.

Photographer Ben Lowy spent time working in Iraq during the war.  He's put some of his iconic images together in a pair of books titled "Iraq Perspectives."  Errol Barnett recently sat down to talk to Ben about his work and what it was like to be a witness to the conflict.

You can see more photographs by Ben Lowy on the CNN Photo Blog. For more on his career, check out his website: http://benlowy.com
