Complete Title: Frontline: Benghazi in Crisis
Synopsis: This two-part hour from FRONTLINE features Benghazi in Crisis and Yemen Under Siege--two short documentaries filmed in the heart of major conflict zones. First, in Benghazi in Crisis, journalist Feras Kilani goes inside the war-torn Libyan city of Benghazi and reveals firsthand just how chaotic the situation there has become, as ISIS, other Islamist militants, warring militias and the Libyan army all fight for control. With Libya now ISIS's biggest base outside of Syria and Iraq, the documentary is a rare and grim look inside Benghazi as the fighting intensifies. Then, in Yemen Under Siege, journalist Safa Al Ahmad (The Fight for Yemen) makes a dangerous return to Yemen and captures the chaos on camera. Hundreds of thousands of people have fled Taiz, Yemen's third-largest city, and for those that remain, life is nearly unbearable. Mortar attacks kill children who are lining up for water. Schools have been closed for months. There used to be 20 hospitals in Taiz; now, only a handful are partially functioning. The documentary reveals the conflict's stunning human toll as it's rarely seen.
