Madaya Syria: ‘400 residents need’ urgent evacuation

Madaya, which is about 25km (15 miles) north-west of Damascus and 11km from the border with Lebanon,  has been besieged since early July by government forces and their allies in Lebanon's Shia Islamist Hezbollah movement.
Meanwhile, 21 lorries on Monday entered.  Another entered Foah and Kefraya.
They were carrying basic food items - including rice, vegetable oil, flour, sugar and salt - as well as water, infant formula, blankets, medicines and surgical supplies.
