Syria Undercover

November 08, November 8, 2011

As the death toll in Syria nears 3,000, the revolution rages on well after the fall of dictators in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya. While grainy cell phone videos of violent attacks on protesters are making it out, foreign journalists are seldom making it in. In this special newsmagazine report, FRONTLINE offers a rare look from inside, as we travel with undercover reporter Ramita Navai into some of the most dangerous parts of Syria to meet members of the opposition movement forced into hiding. As the town of Madaya is besieged by the army, the security forces, and the militia, Navai experiences first-hand life as a fugitive when she is trapped in a safe house with three opposition coordinators on the government’s most wanted list.
