A man carries a baby who survived what activists say was an airstrike by forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the Duma neighborhood of Damascus on Jan. 7, 2014.

A Damascus neighborhood was hit by an airstrike, the same day that Syria began removing chemical weapon materials out of the country in a crucial phase of a disarmament program delayed by war and technical problems. Activists claim that forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad are behind the ongoing air raids.
