Another 16 die in Syrian town

uganda

Another 16 people have starved to death in the besieged Syrian town of Madaya since United Nations aid convoys reached it earlier this month, according to charity Medecins Sans Frontieres.

The charity said there are also 33 people in danger of dying.

Brice de la Vingne, MSF operations director, said the situation was “totally unacceptable” when people “should have been evacuated weeks ago.”

MSF previously said 30 people died of starvation in the town late last year.

Earlier in January, two emergency convoys of food and aid supplies were delivered to Madaya, where up to 40,000 people are believed to be trapped in appalling conditions, the BBC reports.
