A young boy has been pictured holding his baby sister, who is said to have been saved from the rubble underneath their home in Aleppo, Syria.
The brother is seen weeping, after what activists say was an airstrike carried out by Syrian government forces.
More than 140,000 people, over 7,000 of them children, are said to have been killed in the Syrian conflict, according to the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, who released the figures today.
The death toll is now at 140,041, according to the Observatory, which is based in Britain but has a network of activists across the country.
Among the dead were 7,626 children and 5,064 women.
The pro-opposition Observatory said the period since the "Geneva 2" peace talks for Syria began last month had been the bloodiest of the nearly three-year conflict.
Today UN-Arab League mediator Lakhdar Brahami ended the Geneva talks, and apologised to the people of Syria for failing to end the "horrible" crisis.
