Obaida Hitto, a Texan who spent five months assisting the Free Syrian Army, visited us for an interview recording with NPR's All Things Considered.
Mr. Hitto documented the violence in the eastern Syrian city through videos he posted on the Internet, until he was injured in a mortar attack by Bashar Assad's forces at the end of September. He is now recovering in Istanbul.
