Syria's children of war

by Reuters

A report by Save the Children on medical care and children in Syria has painted a dire picture of Syria's collapsing healthcare system.

Newborns have frozen to death in hospital incubators, doctors have amputated limbs to stop patients from bleeding to death.

In Aleppo, there are just 36 doctors looking after around 2.5 million people across the city.

Overall, 60 percent of health facilities have been deamaged or destroyed.
