Omar Abdul Razek on The Fifth Floor

BBC Arabic reporter Omar Abdul Razek has just returned from assignment in Syria - his reportage took him around the country from Damascus, Aleppo and Latikia.

He speaks to The Fifth Floor programme along with Adel Soliman, his desk editor in London - who was anxiously awaiting his dispatches and news of his safety.

How do they manage risk in such a fragile and dangerous environment while still getting the story?
