Today marks the fourth anniversary of the Syrian civil war. This is one of the worst crises in our era: 13,000 people have been killed in prisons under Bashar al Assad regime in the last four years. In the UN building in New York, just a few days ago, an exhibition showing explicit picture of victims of torture in Syria shocked viewers. Millions of people have been forced out of their homes, and hosting countries are facing enormous difficulties in managing the crisis. 83% of all the lights in Syria have gone out since the start of the conflict there, a global coalition of humanitarian and human rights organisations has revealed ahead of the fourth anniversary on March 15.
