Little Omran, 5, Becomes Symbol Of Desperation In Aleppo

A Syrian boy rescued after an airstrike on Aleppo has become a symbol of the desperate situation in the city.

The boy was identified by doctors as Omran Daqneesh, a five-year-old brought to hospital with head wounds after Wednesday night’s attack on the rebel-held district of Qaterji.

A video posted by the Aleppo Media Centre shows a man rescuing Omran and carrying him, dazed and bleeding, to a waiting ambulance.
