Summary HOUSE OF HORRORHow could three young women be held captive in a suburban house, undetected for a decade? It's the question people across the United States are demanding an answer to. On Tuesday, Aaron Lewis reports from Cleveland, Ohio on the shock and disbelief in the neighbourhood where Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were missing. He'll recap the story from the girls' mysterious disappearances, through the families' ten years of desperate searching, to the tearful scenes as they were finally reunited. And Aaron will talk to an expert about the terrible effects the experience is likely to have had on the women. With disturbing allegations of them being tied up, raped and forced to abort pregnancies by accused man Ariel Castro, what hope is there that they'll ever be able to return to normal life?FRONTLINE SYRIAIn Syria, some sort of life has to go on for the ordinary people caught in the midst of the civil war between the Assad regime and the rebels, but it's a dangerous and terrifying existence. On Tuesday's Dateline, Evan Williams reports from the northern town of Salma, where he looks at life through the eyes of Dr Rami Habib. With barrel bombs packed with shrapnel being dropped from helicopters all around, Dr Habib risks his own life every day to run a makeshift hospital for the local sick and injured. He returned to his home country from Britain two years ago to visit family, and decided he just couldn't leave while so many people needed his help. Out on house calls, he dodges more bombs to find people living under siege in terrible conditions, where even leaving the house could prove fatal.THE BABY BOXWhen an alarm goes off at Pastor Lee Jong Rak's home in South Korea, it means another baby has been abandoned for him to look after. The children are left in his purpose built baby box by desperate mothers, who feel they are no longer able to look after the youngsters themselves. On Tuesday's Dateline, David Brill looks at the sad stories of women wanting to escape the stigma of having children out of wedlock, and the heartwarming work of Pastor Lee in caring for them. Up to 18 babies are abandoned each month in the box attached to his house, to be looked after by Pastor Lee and his team of volunteers until more permanent arrangements can be made. But it's a challenging job... new laws on registering births are making it more difficult to find adoptive parents, and some are critical of Pastor Lee for making it too easy to abandon unwanted children
