The United Nations appealed for $6.5 billion for Syria and its neighbors on Monday to help 16 million people next year, many of them hungry or homeless victims of a 33-month-old conflict that has no end in sight. (..)The U.N. World Food Programme aims to feed 4.25 million people in Syria, where it reached only 3.4 million in November.
