Volunteer doctors plead with Security Council to help save Aleppo

A wide view of the Security Council.

Volunteer doctors who have been working in the Syrian city of Aleppo came to the UN Security Council on Monday, with a plea for more action to save lives.

In a special meeting focussing on the worsening humanitarian crisis facing Aleppo, members saw graphic photographs and videos of injured children and hospitals destroyed by aerial bombardment.

Heavy fighting in recent weeks has cut off more than 250,000 residents in Eastern Aleppo, and a counter-offensive now threatens thousands of civilians living in the west.
