Two women risked their lives to capture film in a city controlled by ISIS

Two Syrian women worked with the Swedish news agency Expressen to secretly film what life is like in Raqqa, the Syrian city ISIS has claimed as its capital. Their videos show the horrible violence they witness every day, and demonstrate how severely their freedoms have been limited.

The footage was part of a short documentary piece by Expressen.
