Europe Editor and Presenter

Whilst the world has watched appalled as ceasefire and evacuation deals have been made and broken in Aleppo, it has been hard to imagine what it was really like to be trapped and injured in a tiny piece of a broken city, bombed from the air and surrounded by rebels and militias on the ground. Residents have sent video and recorded final messages but we haven’t seen the sheer terror of daily life.
