Brother of Syrian boy pulled from Aleppo rubble dies in hospital
The airstrike that destroyed the home of five-year-old Omran Daqneesh who was photographed after being pulled from the rubble has claimed the life of his brother.
Ali, 10, died from his injuries in hospital on Saturday. The boys’ father received mourners at his temporary home after news broke of the death, the Guardian reported.
Ali was not with his younger brother at home but playing with friends out in the street when the bomb fell on Wednesday. While his family sustained minor injuries when their home collapsed he was more seriously hurt in the blast.
