Global shows of solidarity over Aleppo
'In cities as far apart as London, Sarajevo and Amman, protesters poured on to the streets to show their anger at the events in the rebel-held areas.
Some were burning pictures of President Vladimir Putin, angry at Russia's role in the fall of east Aleppo. Others held up pictures of injured, dead and dying children to illustrate the cost of the battle to the most innocent.
In Syria itself - torn apart by more than five years of civil war - people came out, holding candles and signs in a peaceful protest in Douma, a town near Damascus held by the rebel Free Syrian Army.'
