Food is so scare in Aleppo that a cucumber arrived and people took selfies...

This is a photo of journalists posing with a cucumber, celebrating the arrival of food to the besieged city of Aleppo.

Syria has been ravaged by civil war for five years and fighting has intensified in Aleppo recently. Residents in the city have been coping without access to fresh food, water, and electricity over the past month.

The photo was taken by journalist Louai Barakat and was captioned: “Thank God some vegetables are entering Aleppo.”

Families have been forced to cook leaves off trees to survive, using clockwork lamps, and sourcing water from wells.

A letter from medics to President Obama asked for urgent help in eastern Aleppo.

There are 15 doctors left for the 300,000 people living there and hospitals continue to be bombed. Full story...
