New clashes in blockaded area of Damascus halt aid
FILE -- In this Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014 file photo, which released by the Syrian official news agency SANA, residents of the besieged Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp wait to leave the camp, on the southern edge of the Syrian capital Damascus, Syria. In one besieged neighborhood after another, weary rebels have turned over their weapons to the Syrian government in exchange for an easing of suffocating blockades that have prevented food, medicine and other staples from reaching civilians trapped inside. The government touts the truces as part of its program of “national reconciliation” to end Syria’s crisis, which has killed more than 140,000 people since March 2011. (AP Photo/SANA, File)
