Topic: Aid convoy reaches besieged, starving Syrian town

An aid convoy entered a besieged Syrian town on Monday where thousands have been trapped without supplies for months and people are reported to have died of starvation. Trucks carrying food and medical supplies reached Madaya near the Lebanese border and began to distribute aid as part of an agreement between warring sides, the United Nations and the Red Cross said. Dozens are said to have died from starvation or lack of medical care in the town and activists say some inhabitants have been reduced to eating leaves.
