Go behind the headlines to explore the wider background of news stories that are making a major impact across the world. In Hostage-takers, we ask who are today's hostage-takers and what do they want? What drives them to extreme action? We look at how captivity and stress affect the victims and ask whether we should negotiate with hostage-takers. How can lives be saved and how can hostage-taking be prevented in the first place?
