UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon says that half of Syria's population now "urgently need humanitarian aid".

He was speaking at a donor conference in Kuwait to raise funds for the worsening humanitarian crisis.

The UN is asking for $6.5 billion over the coming year for Syria, it’s biggest ever request for a single crisis.
