Syria Unrest

Photographer Killed in Aleppo - 23 Dec 2013
A selection of archive images showcasing Molhem Barakats work in Syria. The Syrian photographer who took pictures for Reuters on a freelance basis was killed while covering fighting in Aleppo.

Barakat died on Friday as he took photographs of a battle over a hospital between rebels and forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad. Rebels had accused government forces or turning the Kindi Hospital into a barracks. As well as covering the conflict, Barakat took pictures showing the life of ordinary Syrians in the divided city, which used to be Syria's commercial hub. The civil war in Syria has claimed the lives of well over 100,000 people since 2011 and driven millions into neighbouring countries.

Barakat had sent Reuters hundreds of pictures since May this year. Many of those pictures appeared in publications around the world.

A fighter from the Tawhid Brigade, which operates under the Free Syrian Army, prepares homemade rockets to be thrown towards the 80th Brigade base in Aleppo, controlled by forces loyal to Syria's President Bashar al-Assad, November 11, 2013. Syrian forces backed by Lebanese Hezbollah militants recaptured an army base in northern Syria from rebels on Sunday, the third day of heavy fighting for the strategic military target which has changed hands three times since Friday. State media and activists said Assad's forces were in full control of the 80th Brigade base, which lies just a few hundred meters (yards) north of Aleppo airport on the eastern edge of the disputed city.
