Wounded girl’s image haunting the world

wounded-girls-image-haunting-the-worldIt’s another haunting picture of a wounded child from Syria. This one has also gone viral on social media.

The video and images were posted online by a pro-opposition activist group, Talbiseh Media Center.
It shows an 8-year-old girl in a medical facility, her hair and body covered with dust. There’s blood tricking down her forehead, her nose. She looks confused and scared and keeps calling out for her father, according to a report in CNN.
Off camera, a man talks to her, asking for her name.
“Aya” she replies, crying.
“Where were you when this happened?” the questioner asks.
“At home but the roof fell on us,” she replies, looking around for her father.
“Oh Daddy… Daddy, come,” she cries.
Hospital staff and volunteers try to clean her up and attend to her wounds, as she continues to sob.
Aya was pulled from under rubble along with her family members when an airstrike hit their home in Talbiseh on Monday. Talbiseh, a large town in northwestern Syria, is about 10 kilometers north of Homs. Activists there say at least two people were killed and 30 wounded in three airstrikes that targeted residential areas of their town.
Aya’s mother, father and three siblings were wounded in the strike.
