Children starving in Syrian town of Moadamiyeh living on lies — and little else --- MSNBC --- --- --- yellow sub blog

"The town has been under attack for years by Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces, yet the rebel fighters in Moadamiyeh won’t give up; so the whole town is being punished. Pro-regime checkpoints ring Moadamiyeh, preventing food and medicine from being brought in. Cut off, the town has become filthy. Locals say disease is spreading. The power is dead. There’s no fuel for heating, and when residents try to go to their farms on the edge of town to collect fruit or firewood, they risk being shot or bombed."
