War-zone surgeon speaks
A surgeon who spent five weeks operating on the victims of Syria's brutal civil war will give a talk about his experiences next month.
Paul McMaster, chairman of the charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), has recently returned from the conflict zone.
The 70-year-old has been invited to speak at a reception being hosted by Leicestershire County Council chairman Peter Lewis.
Coun Lewis has selected MSF as his appeal charity for his term as the county's first citizen.
