Syria: Cities in ruins, civilians in danger

These photos taken in April 2013 in the city of Aleppo and the town of Azaz show the scale of the disaster unfolding in Syria. Civilians who have not fled face a daily struggle for survival in the midst of the fighting and the rubble.

There are not enough camps in Syria for the 4 million displaced people. Many families live in schools, mosques and makeshift shelters.
