Dazed and bloodied, Omran Daqneesh, 5, sits in an ambulance Wednesday after an airstrike on a rebel-held area in Aleppo, Syria. Omran suffered head wounds, doctors said. His photo spread on social media as the face of Syria's civil war, which has killed about 11,420 children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
