Syria – another country torn apart by politics. People suffer and people die because of self-interested parties. Dictator Assad, Russia and aggressive neighbours like Israel and Iran are not interested in peace nor are they interested into the people. They simply search for power.

The men from the collection point for the nameless dead always come during the morning. They descend from a major intersection in the Bustan al-Qasr district to the small Quweiq River and bring the bodies that have washed up overnight to a courtyard, where they are wrapped in white sheets and photographed before being left there for a day. This is the place where people looking for missing relatives come to find them.
River of Death Alleppo
Last week, dozens of corpses were found on the shore of the Quweiq River in Aleppo, Syria. Many appear to have been students at a nearby university who were murdered by the regime after travelling to the city for exams.
