The Syrian city of Homs has been besieged by President Bashar al-Assad's military since 2012 because parts of the town are held by the rebels. The fighting makes it very difficult to provide aid to the people trapped in the crossfire.

Residents need food and medicine but aid convoys are having trouble getting in. And people who have fled the town to places like Beirut, Lebanon know their hometown will never be the same. The BBC's Jim Muir brings us this report.
