Syrian Regime, Russian Forces Close In On Rebel-Held Aleppo

Doctors Without Borders issued a warning today about the humanitarian crisis for refugees trying to get away from the fighting in Aleppo. They are fleeing to the border with Turkey where they need food and shelter.

Meantime, the diplomatic effort to halt the fighting that has been going on since 2011 continues tomorrow in Munich, when Secretary of State John Kerry is scheduled to meet Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson speaks with the BBC’s chief international correspondent, Lyse Doucet, who has just returned from the region.
