Syria's real life stories
The desperate plight of people in Syria seems to worsen by the month. Hundreds of thousands of people have left, but some have decided to stay in spite of the very real dangers they face. Their stories have been collected together by the Scottish-Syrian writer Robin Yassin-Kassab, who talks about his book "Burning Country".
