Scores killed as Syrian rebels fight to break Damascus siege

***GRAPHIC IMAGES*** Rebel fighters in the Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta are at work, trying to break a blockade on the area by government forces, according to this latest video posted to the internet Reuters cannot independently verify reports that 160 people were killed in fighting over the weekend. No moment, not even burying the dead, is sacred. Danger is the constant companion for everyone with stakes in the battle for Eastern Ghouta. Air raids on Sunday were the military's response to rebel attacks on checkpoints. Equally worrying to international aid workers here, is the blockade's impact on civilians. They say that since food and weapon supplies were cut off to the area, many locals are effectively being starved out.
