Two million people living in Aleppo are facing round the clock bombardment and an absence of the most basic supplies for human survival. One of the 15 remaining doctors there, Dr Hamza Alkateab, who wrote a letter to President Obama earlier this week, explains the enormous challenges he faces on a daily basis. Former US deputy assistant Secretary of Defense responsible for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia, Dr Evelyn Farkas, speaks to presenter Mishal Husain about how this desperate situation might be brought to an end.
