Life of Kobane female teenagers - Kobane Pt. 5

Life of Kobane female teenagers - Kobane Pt. 5
 
Delvin Ahmed, the local girls’ football team coach, during a training session in Kobane, Syria RFI/Filip Warwick

In the northern Syrian city of Kobane, Kurds make up the majority of the population. In 2015, when the city was almost surrounded by the Islamic State armed group, most of the population fled to the Turkish border. Today, three years on, many families have come back to Kobane. But for Kobane's women, and especially the youth, has life returned to normal? Filip Warwick tries to answer that question in this final report of a five-part series.
