BEIRUT (Reuters) - A convoy of 50 aid trucks heading for the besieged Syrian town of Madaya set off from Damascus on Thursday, a Reuters witness said.

The convoy is the second this week to the town near the Lebanese border, where thousands are trapped and local doctors say some have starved to death.
