Image of dazed, bloodied Syrian boy encapsulates horror of conflict

This image of a Syrian boy, covered with blood and dust, sitting dazed in an ambulance following an airstrike has sparked fresh outrage around the world. The boy was identified as 5-year-old Omran Daqneesh, who was rescued from a bombed building in Aleppo on Wednesday. His parents and three siblings are believed to have survived the airstrike that destroyed their home. Daqneesh is not the first Syrian war child to tug on the world’s heart strings after being photographed. Images of a girl “surrendering” to a photographer in a border refugee camp after she mistook his camera for a gun, and of the body of 3-year-old Aylan Kurdi, drowned in the Mediterranean Sea while trying to reach Europe, became grim icons of the conflict in 2015.
