CNN Exclusive: Life in Daraya, Syria

CNN has obtained an extraordinary account of life in the Damascus suburb of Daraya over the last two weeks, just before the neighborhood was overrun by Syrian government troops. The Syrian government has said it targeted Daraya to cleanse terrorist cells from the town, but this report shows the townspeople had only just begun to rebuild their lives after the last Syrian Army offensive nearly two months ago. Some of the images  are graphic and for safety reasons, CNN is not naming the journalist.
