The lost loved ones of Syria
Between 28,000 and 80,000 thousand Syrians have gone missing since the uprising against President Bashar al Assad began last year. Many of those may have died in combat, while others could be being held in prison by the regime, where toruture is rife and relatively few people come out alive. The NGO Azaaz is trying to keep on top of those figures over the border in Lebanon, but it's hard to reassure families who have no idea if their loved ones are alive or dead.
