Syria conflict: On the frontline

Getting to the truth in Syria has proved a major challenge for foreign journalists. Barred from reporting, news organisations have often been forced to rely on so-called citizen journalism.

Laura Baines and her panel try to paint a clearer picture of what's happening on the ground in Syria.
