Baby freed from rubble after Aleppo airstrike

Baby boy is pulled alive from rubble as government bombing of Syria's second biggest city intensifies.

    Rescuers have removed a baby boy alive from rubble following an airstrike by Syrian government forces on Aleppo.

    The rescue from the toppled building was filmed after bombing intensified in the country's second largest city.

    The Syrian government says it is trying to eradicate Islamic State fighters, who now control a third of the country.

    But their so-called "barrel bombs" are killing many innocent civilians.
