Brother of Syrian boy in iconic Aleppo photo dies. Warning: Graphic photo

Ali Daqneesh, the older brother of a Syrian boy whose face has become a symbol of the horror of the country's civil war, died Saturday of injuries sustained in the same airstrike that destroyed the family's home, according to the Aleppo Media Center.

Ali, 10, had been in critical condition since Wednesday, when the blast hit the apartment in the Qaterji neighborhood of the northern Syrian city of Aleppo, the anti-government opposition group confirmed to USA TODAY by email.

1. RIP, Little One. The Great Mother will be there for you.

 

This or may not be true, but it helps keep me sane.

4. Like the Spanish Civil War in the 1930's, outside forces are arming and participating

on both sides. The ones who suffer are those like Ali Daqneesh.
