100 Women 2015: Life for women in Islamic State's Raqqa

"Nour is a woman from Raqqa, the so-called Islamic State's (IS) capital inside Syria. She managed to escape the city and is now a refugee in Europe, where she met up with the BBC. This story is based on her experiences and those of her two sisters, who are still inside the IS-held city. Names and the timings of some events have been changed to avoid compromising the safety of Nour or her family."

Murdoch may block Google searches

"Rupert Murdoch has said he will try to block Google from using news content from his companies.

The billionaire told Sky News Australia he will explore ways to remove stories from Google's search indexes, including Google News.

Mr Murdoch's News Corp had previously said it would start charging online customers across all its websites.

He believes that search engines cannot legally use headlines and paragraphs of news stories as search results.

'There's a doctrine called 'fair use', which we believe to be challenged in the courts and would bar it altogether,' Mr Murdoch told the TV channel. 'But we'll take that slowly.'

Mr Murdoch announced earlier this year that the websites of his news organisations would begin charging for access."

BBC launches Persian TV channel

"BBC Persian TV will broadcast for eight hours a day, seven days a week, in peak viewing time in those [Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan] countries.

The head of BBC World Service, Nigel Chapman, says millions of Iranians have dishes and there is plenty of demand.
Mr Chapman said it was important to provide TV in Farsi because of the numbers of people accessing news and information through television. He called them "a very important audience... who trust the BBC, who value it".

As well as news, the BBC Persian channel will show BBC arts, culture, science and technology programmes, dubbed into Persian."
