An image showing a Syrian boy who starved to death after his family was killed in a bomb attack on his home was shown on Syrian TV.
The boy had apparantly lost both his parents when a bomb dropped by Bashar al-Assad's forces destroyed his home.
After being left completely alone, the boy began to wonder the streets looking for food and a place to stay.
With no shoes of his own, he returned to the ruins of his home where he found a pair of his father's shoes to protect his small feet.
He resorted to selling black trash bags to make some money, and would collect pieces of food he found in a small container.
However, it was not enough to save his life, and after disappearing for some time, passerby found his decomposing body, that had been half eaten by street dogs, lying beside his trash bags in an alley.
Presenter Dr. Faisal al-Kasem who broadcast the picture said "After the attack in his house, the child inherited nothing except his father's shoes."
