Nuncio reports starvation in Damascus

April 22, 2014

Archbishop Mario Zenari, the apostolic nuncio to Syria, has told Vatican Radio that people are starving in his neighborhood in Damascus.

“This is something the international community cannot accept,” he said. “Aid is ready: [it is] there at the gates of these villages and neighborhoods, and because of a lack of security, humanitarian agencies are unable to enter.”
