Syrians starve as government halts supplies

The regime has prevented supplies from reaching a Damascus suburb, a move that has forced many to go hungry.

    The opposition coalition is warning of a humanitarian disaster in a Damascus suburb.

    Rebels have been using areas in the capital to attack nearby military installations.

    The government has responded by imposing a siege, preventing supplies and starving people in the process.
