Britons to deliver aid to Syria, undeterred by travel warning

British citizens have been warned by the government not to travel to Syria for any reason.

Syria has been in a state of civil war for more than three years and has attracted hundreds of British fighters.

Officials say they fear even those going to deliver aid may be radicalised by what they see - but some are ignoring the warnings and going anyway.

Catrin Nye reports.

You can listen to Destination Syria on BBC Asian Network at 1700 BST on Friday 4 July, or watch on BBC World News from 2030 GMT on Friday, and on the BBC News Channel from 0430BST on Saturday 5 July.
