Syria's children reach out for help on social media

Mohammed Najem survived the government offensive on Eastern Ghouta, but his new home in Idlib is under bombardment as well and he is using social media to ask the world for help.

    Teenage survivors of the war in Syria are using Facebook, Twitter and other social media to appeal for help from anyone willing to listen.

    The Syrian government's recent bombardment of Eastern Ghouta killed more than a thousand civilians, including 350 children.

    Fifteen-year-old Mohammed Najem managed to escape the besieged enclave. But he continues to fear for his life because his new home in Idlib is also under attack.
