Syria: Assad forces ‘using starvation as weapon of war’

Starvation tactics against civilians are being used as a weapon of war by the Syrian government, the human rights group Amnesty International says.

A new report says at least 128 refugees have died at the besieged Yarmouk camp in Damascus as a result.

It says thousands of people still trapped there face a “catastrophic humanitarian crisis”.

Amnesty says families have been forced to forage for food in the streets – risking being killed by snipers.
