Syrian refugees in Germany produce their own monthly newspaper: in Arabic - ABWAB: Arabic for doors.

There are over a million refugees residing in Germany, and for many news outlets, the refugees are not only a big news story, they are a new market.

Many organisations including public broadcasters, privately-run channels and widely-read newspapers have created content aimed at this new audience - in Arabic

But not all the efforts have hit the mark, which has inspired a small group of refugees to start reporting for themselves. They are publishing a monthly newspaper that aims to get past the stereotypes and the cultural divide. The editor-in-chief of Abwab is Ramy Al-Asheq.
