Syria and Libya Update

Libya and Syria

As we approach Eid Al-Fitr at the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, the continuing bloodshed in Syria comes into focus in this Middle East Analysis podcast.

Our contributor, Dr Harry Hagopian, brings us up to speed on the current situation and also looks at the plight of the country's Christians.

We also ask whether supporters of the National Transitional Council (NTC) in Libya might soon be in a position to break the stalemate and oust Colonel Qadhafi from power.

A packed Middle East Analysis concludes by examining former president Hosni Mubarak's trial in Egypt and, with a spate of Church bombings in the country, how Iraq has hit the headlines for violence against Christians.

Dr Hagopian is an international lawyer and consultant to the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales on the Middle East. He's also a former Assistant General Secretary of the Middle East Council of Churches.
