Aid reaches starved Madaya and other besieged Syria towns



Aid organised by international and local organisations has arrived in the three besieged Syrian towns of Madaya, Kefraya and Foua.

The people of Madaya say they have been reduced to eating handfuls of salt, tree leaves, grass and cats and dogs. The World Food Programme says the aid CARRIED on the Madaya convoy will meet the needs of 40-thousand people. But only for one month.
