Jacqui Lambie and refugee lawyer Marina Brizar are in Raqqa following a live demining team. Raqqa is a city riddled with the lethal explosive devices after they were planted by departing ISIS fighters.

In Bentui POC Spida Everett and Meshel Laurie try to find the long lost sister of Jeffah. She and her brother haven’t seen each other for more than twenty years. In another continent Gretel and Steve have travelled to the north coast of Turkey to meet the aunt of 3 year-old drowning victim Alan Kurdi who retells the tragic story that became front-page news around the world.
