The war in Syria has raged for five years and claimed the lives of more than a quarter of a million people. The threat of death or injury is a fact of life. Everyone in Syria has someone who has died but the exact number of those who are gone may never be known.
The United Nations says more than 85,000 people are stranded in Ruqban, near the point where Jordan, Syria and Iraq meet, and Hadalat camp, 50 miles (80km) to the west.
The berm area they have been stranded aid workers are unable to reach it, there has been no supply of water, food and medicines.
This reflects an international failure to protect and help people affected by conflict and who are in desperate need.
Five years into war, what is left of the people and the country?
