Left to lie where she was cut down


Shocking image of the innocent little girl slaughtered in Syria’s civil war who was denied even some dignity in death

The lifeless body of a young girl lies in the street, an innocent victim of a series of suicide bomb attacks that today tore through the heart of the Syrian city of Aleppo.

The youngster pictured in a blood-stained rubble-strewn street is one of at least 40 victims of this morning’s blasts, which could signal a new stage in the civil war.

In a sign of the growing intensity of the bitter conflict between rebels and forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, the town’s main Saadallah al-Jabari Square was rocked by four explosions – the likes of which have so far been mainly limited to the capital Damascus.

And with fears of further attacks, the young girl’s body – a potent symbol of the collateral damage each side is prepared to risk – has been left untouched in the street as locals fear further bombings.
