Syria: Normal life slowly resumes amid ruins of Aleppo

This Wednesday marks a sad anniversary: it's now been six years since the start of the Syrian civil war. The northern city of Aleppo has been a key battleground and suffered from months of bombings. However, since the siege ended two months ago, life is slowly returning to normal for local residents, who are trying to rebuild their lives amid the ruins.


We also visit Lebanon's largest Palestinian refugee camp, where the situation is tense amid an outbreak of clashes between the country's Fatah movement and Islamist groups. Our correspondent has been meeting the camp's inhabitants.

Finally, we take a look at "Mr Gay Syria", a documentary about a group of Syrian refugees trying to enter the Mr Gay World competition. We speak to the  director Ayşe Toprak in Istanbul.
