Aid Convoy Arrives in Besieged Syrian Town After Weeks of Widespread Starvation

Aid convoys from the United Nations and the Red Cross have entered the besieged Syrian town of Madaya on Monday amid reports of residents dying of starvation in recent weeks. The first three trucks carrying supplies have entered the town, according to a BBC Arabic correspondent. Last week the Syrian government agreed to allow access to Madaya, in the Zabadani district, under the condition that aid would also be given to the towns of Foua and Kefraya, in Idlib province, which have been besieged by rebel factions.
