Face Of The Day


Wounded Syrian soldiers are evacuated following a roadside bomb attack that targeted their convoy as they escorted UN peace observers, including the Norwegian general who heads the mission, through the restive southern Syria city of Daraa on May 9, 2012. Six soldiers were wounded when the explosive device, which appeared to have been planted underground, detonated as the convoy of four vehicles was about to enter Daraa, cradle of a 14-month uprising against President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
