Relief Reaches Starving Syrian Town

A convoy of trucks carrying food and medicine began arriving in the Syrian town of Madaya. The town is controlled by rebels and for months it has been surrounded by Syrian government troops that have blocked access to food and supplies.

Doctors Without Borders is aiding a clinic in Madaya and reports 28 people have died from hunger-related causes since December. Brice de le Vingne, operations director for Doctors Without Borders, speaks with Here & Now‘s Robin Young about the situation there.
