Madaya, Syria, is still under siege. And a human rights group says more young people there are trying to kill themselves.
The city's siege began in July 2015.
Before that, Save the Children says there were few suicide attempts. But in the past two months, the groups says there have been at least 13 attempts among young adults and teenagers.
