Sunday’s “NHK Special” reported on the situation in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo that has been described as the worst humanitarian crisis of the 21st century. Aleppo became a key battleground in the internal conflict in Syria and was the site of a brutal standoff between rebel and Assad forces until the latter recaptured it last December. As journalists’ access to Aleppo had been limited until then, its citizens recorded what was happening in the streets and the last remaining hospital, and disseminated their cries for help via social media.
