Islamic State 'withdraws from Yarmouk camp' — They are still fighting Aknaf Beit al Maqdis, a local militia allied to Hamas, on the outskirts of Yarmouk. "Today there are no more IS militants inside Yarmouk," said "Mustafa Ahmed", who uses a pseudonym to disguise his identity. "Most of the militants are at the frontline between IS and the Aknaf brigades in the south eastern part near the hospital."

It’s What I Do by Lynsey Addario review - a war photographer’s journey to motherhood — The myth of the brave and ruggedly handsome but inwardly tortured war photographer has long had a grip on the popular imagination - think Richard Boyle in Oliver Stone's film Salvador. Don McCullin was the real-life version of the legend.

The Rainy Season — For years, the rainy season would bring up bodies that had lain where they were slaughtered. You might see clothes floating in a flooded field or stumble across a leg bone or a child's skull, half covered in mud. Nowadays, the rain lifts memories to the surface.

Islamic State fighters smash historic statues in Iraq — Nineveh, on the site of modern day Mosul, was the capital of the Assyrian empire that lasted nineteen centuries from 2500 to 605 BC. But, according to archaeologists, most if not all the statues in the Mosul museum are replicas not originals. The reason they crumble so easily is that they're made of plaster.

In Conversation: Anjan Sundaram and Lindsey Hilsum — Anjan Sundaram and Lindsey Hilsum discuss the Central African Republic, genocide and Martha Gellhorn. Dear Anjan, It's taken me a while to sit down and write to you while the ideas sparked by your piece have been going round in my head.

Life in Aleppo’s ruins: ‘We’ve had enough of dying, sitting at home, having no fun. We want to dance’ — They dance to Gangnam Style at the daytime disco in Aleppo. The lights strobe as Psy's 2012 hit blasts out and a young woman with tattooed arms and a ripped T-shirt roars out the lyrics. Dry ice fills the basement of the Dedeman Hotel, which luckily is not experiencing one of Aleppo's daily power cuts.

The battle for Aleppo - video — International Editor Lindsey Hilsum is given a tour around Aleppo, Syria. Some areas are still in the hands of the Free Syrian Army, but they are squeezed between IS militants and the Syrian regime.

Living with war in Aleppo - video — Syria's second city has seen some of the fiercest fighting of the civil war, but some people living there just want to forget the carnage, whatever way they can.
