Syria restaurant soldiers on

Restaurant in Latakia province risks daily shelling to serve customers taste of what life was like before conflict.

    More than a million people have fled Syria because of the violence. But some refuse to leave their homes and businesses despite the tough conditions.

    For instance, the chef at the only working restaurant in a rebel-held part of Latakia province keeps on cooking despite almost daily shelling.
