(Save the Children) – The besieged Syrian town of Madaya has seen a worrying increase in suicide attempts and mental illness among children and young adults, Save the Children warned, as desperately needed aid has been blocked for more than four months. Medical staff have reported that at least six teenagers — the youngest a 12 year old girl — and seven young adults have attempted suicide in the past two months, compared to almost no cases before July 2015 when the siege was first imposed.
