The civil war in Syria has claimed more than 250,000 lives and has displaced millions, triggering the refugee crisis in Europe. But the conflict has also displaced millions of Syrians in their own country.

The BBC’s Chief International Correspondent Lyse Doucet just completed a 10-day trip to Syria. She speaks with Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson about how the Syrians still living in the war-torn country are dealing with the constant violence.

Note: This BBC interview can be heard in the Here & Now podcast or with the WBUR app.
