Syria crisis: Tide of desperation in Yarmouk camp 

Syria Chrisis
 
Desperation amid devastation - a vast crowd of people queue for aid at the Yarmouk refugee camp near Damascus on 31 January. The camp, which houses about 18,000 Palestinians and an unknown number of Syrians, has seen some of the worst fighting in the capital, leading to severe food shortages. More than 100 people there have died of starvation and hunger-related illnesses, according to the UN.
