PLEASE NOTE: REUTERS CANNOT VERIFY THE AUTHENTICITY OF THESE VIDEOS WHICH WERE OBTAINED FROM A SOCIAL MEDIA WEBSITE This amateur video appears to show the aftermath of a bombing in Syria's second city, Aleppo. The video was posted on a social media website on Tuesday. It claims this is a rebel-held district of Aleppo, bombed by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad. Reuters cannot confirm the veracity of the video and it's unclear how many people, if any, were hurt. Aleppo is in Syria's north. It's where at least seventy-six people, including 28 children, were killed on Sunday. That's when Syrian army helicopters reportedly dropped "barrel bombs" on the rebel-held city, according to a British-based monitoring group.
