Syrians strive to survive in 'frontline' town

Families face acute shortages and daily dangers in conflict-ravaged border town of al-Qusayr.



    Violence in Syria, which is now in its fourteenth month, has forced tens of thousands of people out of their homes.

    But many people have chosen to stay put in their hometowns, now ravaged by the fighting.

    Al Jazeera's James Bays has this exclusive report from al-Qusayr, along the border between Lebanon and Syria, where women and children are most acutely affected by the serious shortages of food, water and electricity.
