China's 'spider-men'


China's migrant workers, whose low-cost labor has propelled the country's economic growth for decades, endure life away from their loved ones to earn a living and escape poverty in their hometowns. In Shanghai, China’s financial capital, Han Bin met the so-called "spider-men," workers who clean the city’s high-rises. He also visited their children, for whose future they’re toiling despite the risks.

Clearing the bombs in Laos


Laos continues to suffer from the deadly legacy of a bombing campaign by the United States more than four decades after the Vietnam War. Some 80 million unexploded ordnance of UXOs still pose a threat to life and limb, maiming dozens of people every year. Rian Malzer was in Laos, where survivors of UXO explosions are struggling to get on with their lives, as people work to clear bombs and make their country a safer place.
