    The opposition in Syria is accusing the government of using "siege and starve" tactics, to force war refugees from a camp in the desert.

    Around 14,000 people have left Rukban camp in the past three months.

    It’s unclear how many of the remaining 27,000 are ready to return to government-controlled territories.
