UK confiscates Syrian journalist's passport

Syrian journalist and anti-Assad campaigner, Zaina Erhaim, has won awards for her role in helping to show the brutality of war in her home country. But when she was invited to London to give a talk about her work, the UK authorities confiscated her passport on behalf of the Syrian regime – leading to claims the Assad government may be censoring its critics even as they operate in foreign countries. Isobel Yeung caught up with her.
