Syria crisis still dire despite outside help

Violence and hardships continue despite presence of UN observers and aid groups.

    It has been a month since the arrival of UN monitors in Syria, and nearly three months since the mission of the Red Cross and Syrian Red Crescent began in the country.

    Violence has continued and the need for aid is still dire, with the UN estimating that a million people have been affected by the conflict.

    Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports on how Syrians have reacted to the presence of the observers and what the aid groups have achieved.
