Ahead of October's full podcast, here's a mini 'Middle East Analysis' for you.

The Bishops' consultant on the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region, Dr Harry Hagopian, looks at the on-going fight to contain and repel IS/ISIS and the pressure on the borders of Iraq, Syria and Turkey.

We also have an update on moves to bring stability to Libya.

As we all know, the news agenda moves quickly. One day we're focusing on the horrors of ISIS attacking Christians and Yazidis - killing and driving thousands out of their homes - the next day it's the coalition's air-based response. So have we forgotten Iraq's minorities already? This is another topic of discussion on today's podcast.

In Libya, key delegates met for a peace conference in Ghadames in the north western region of the country. It was organised by the United Nations Support Mission in Libya but is it a tentative step towards stability and security or another talking shop?
