Doctors, Patients Reportedly Killed In Airstrike On Syrian Hospital
A hospital backed by Doctors Without Borders and the International Committee of the Red Cross was hit overnight by an airstrike in the Syrian city of Aleppo. Patients, children and doctors are among the dead.
More than 60 people have been killed in Aleppo in the last 24 hours, and the Red Cross is warning that the city is on the brink of a humanitarian disaster, with fighting once again intensifying there.
Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson talks with Jim Muir, Middle East correspondent for the BBC, about the strike, and what it might mean for the fragile ceasefire that’s been in place since late February, and the U.N.-brokered peace talks that resumed last month.
