Wages of war

China Daily (USA) - - FRONT PAGE -

Five-year-old Om­ran Daqneesh, with blood­ied face, sits with his sis­ter in­side an am­bu­lance af­ter they were res­cued fol­low­ing an airstrike in the rebel-held al-Qaterji neigh­bor­hood of Aleppo, Syria on Wed­nes­day. A video of Daqneesh sparked out­rage and con­cern on so­cial me­dia on Thurs­day. Rebel-held ar­eas suf­fer heavy air strikes daily as pro-govern­ment forces try to re­take ter­ri­tory lost to rebels two weeks ago in the south­west of Aleppo. The United Na­tions spe­cial en­voy for Syria said on Thurs­day he would work with Rus­sia to iron out de­tails of a planned 48-hour hu­man­i­tar­ian cease­fire in Aleppo, in or­der to de­liver aid quickly to civil­ians.
