  1. Report Cites Atrocities in Aleppo’s ‘Circle of Hell’

    War crimes are being committed there every day. That’s the news from Amnesty International, which has just issued a report highlighting systematic and “unthinkable atrocities” against Syrians — by both the government and rebels. Assad’s regime was singled out for “crimes against humanity” over its use of barrel bombs deliberately targeting civilian hubs like markets, mosques and hospitals. The international organization is pushing for countries to apply global pressure for a combat freeze, but with past efforts leading nowhere, there remains little hope of relief.
