Easing hostilities on the Korean Peninsula


The Demilitarized Zone dividing the Korean peninsula is the world’s most heavily fortified frontier. However, inter-Korean relations have been on the mend since the start of the year, improving to the point where Seoul and Pyongyang are now talking about turning the DMZ into a peace zone. As Jack Barton found out, improved inter-Korean ties have even sparked a property boom near the zone in the South and renewed southern surfers hope that one day they might be able to surf in the northern waters.

Lebanon Fighters for Peace


Fifteen years of civil war may have ravaged Lebanon, but a group of former fighters are determined to remember the mistakes of war and ensure that it never happens again. Former Christian, Muslim and Druze fighters, who earlier on would not hesitate to kill each other, have joined together to spread the message that war does not pay. Natalie Carney discovered that by speaking to at-risk youth in schools and communities, these former adversaries also hope to seek forgiveness from those they have hurt as a way of healing themselves.
