Syria: The ordeal of Madaya's residents

In this edition we head to Syria, where a convoy of trucks carrying humanitarian aid have arrived in the town of Madaya, besieged by the army for six months. Next, in Yemen, a hospital run by French medical charity MSF has been struck by a missile, killing at least four people. We speak to MSF's president about the dangers faced by health workers in conflict zones.
