“Wherever We Went We Heard Stories of People Being Arrested and Tortured”

by

FRONTLINE reporter Ramita Navai talked to Lisa Mullins of The World this morning about the secret hospitals Syrian activists have set up in order to avoid the government’s brutal crackdown on wounded activists in state-run hospitals.

“It’s a shocking scene. Every single patient we met had gun shot injuries, including children. Everything is makeshift and they don’t have enough equipment,” she told Mullins.

Navai spent 15 days undercover in some of the most dangerous parts of Syria last month. She visited some of these secret hospitals and followed a network of Syrian opposition activists forced into hiding.
