More on the James Foley Murder on The World for 8-21

Lots to talk about in the aftermath of American journalist James Foley's murder by extremists in Syria. Marco talks with Syrian opposition activist Qusai Zakarya about the trajectory of the Syrian conflict and the US airstrikes against extremists in next door Iraq. Terrorism expert Peter Neumann fills us in on the social media strategies of groups like the Islamic State.

Also today, we've heard about the wave of young Central Americans heading into the US and how they're being sheltered in different parts of the country. But there's concern about conditions at the shelters. The World's Monica Campbell has one family's story from Georgia.

Plus,  Ruffina Farrokh Anklesaria, an immigrant from Trinidad, gives us a different take on Ferguson and its police force. She's lived there for 11 years.

And from the oceans desk, reporter Ari Daniel explains how the smell of coral helps fish navigate.
