IRAQ: LIVING AND DYING FOR JOURNALISM
Far too often, working as a journalist means putting your life in jeopardy. At least 125 reporters were murdered in the last two years, according to UNESCO, the UN agency charged with freedom of the press. We meet four Iraqi journalists who have risked everything for their profession.

KIRIBATI: PROTECTING THE CHILDREN
In many parts of the world, corporal punishment remains an acceptable way to discipline children. In Kiribati, one of the least developed Pacific island nations, children are often hit when they misbehave. Sometimes, especially when alcohol is involved, it can turn into child abuse.

FROM CHILD SOLDIER, TO INTERNATIONAL PROSECUTOR
The remarkable tale of a former child soldier who -- through a twist of fate -- has been able to bring justice to people who have suffered even more than he did. Alfred Orono lost his childhood, then survived unimaginable horrors. But ultimately, his is a story of redemption and triumph.
