Interactive infographic: The destruction of Aleppo
Wednesday 07 August 2013
Amnesty International has created an interactive infographic that shows the scale of destruction caused ballistic missile strikes in Aleppo, Syria.
Working with the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Amnesty International have analysed the pictures of the city taken by aerospace imagery providers DigitalGlobe and Astrium.
The infographic presents satellite images of before and after the strikes and the difference is a stark one, with the roofs ripped off houses and buildings reduced to rubble.
Aleppo has been one of the cities worst affected by the fighting between militants and forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad.
