Syria conflict: On the frontline (part 2)

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. Amateur videos uploaded to the internet provide a snapshot of the horrors unfolding in Syrian cities, but they do not tell a complete story. Laura Baines and her panel try to paint a clearer picture of what's happening on the ground in Syria.
