Syria Sees Deadliest Week

At least 1,600 people were killed this past week in what UNICEF is calling Syria’s deadliest to date. The count included children killed in the escalating violence, according to Patrick McCormick of the United Nations’ children’s fund. Seventeen people were killed in the country Sunday, according to opposition forces. An explosion rocked the capital of Damascus when a bomb went off near a security building, wounding four people in what state television called an act of “terrorism.”
