Civilians Caught In Aleppo Crossfire

The United Nations says more than 15,000 people have been displaced by the recent fighting in the Syrian city of Aleppo.

Government forces have retaken neighborhoods the rebels have held for four years and people trying to flee are trapped. Aid groups says some parts of the city haven't received food aid in months.
