Aid reaches besieged Syrian towns

Aid convoys have been allowed to deliver food to people in Syrian towns, including Madaya, which have been besieged by government and opposition forces.

An international aid convoy has brought food to the people of the Syrian town of Madaya, which has been besieged by forces loyal to President Assad. There have been reports of deaths from starvation. One aid worker who travelled with the convoy told us that some people had cheered its arrival but others said the supplies had come too late.
