What is Syria’s future after eight years of war?

Eight years ago this week, 15 Syrian teenagers were detained and tortured for spraying anti-government graffiti on a school wall.

That was the beginning of an uprising that led to a civil war, which continues today.

The conflict has killed an estimated 560,000 people and created nearly six million refugees.

The UN and the European Union are holding a donor conference in Brussels to raise nine billion dollars for humanitarian assistance.
