Humanitarian workers say the plight of starving people in the Syrian town of Madaya is heartbreaking and the worst they have witnessed during the country's nearly five-year-long civil war. The U.N.'s resident and humanitarian coordinator in Syria, Yacoub el Hillo, says people have told him they want the international community to do more to have the sieges lifted wherever they are being imposed in the country.
