Amanpour

So many wounded kids

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” said Robert King, a photojournalist who spent a month filming in Syria. “It’s the Butcher of Syria. He’s targeting civilians.”

Speaking Tuesday from Beirut to Christiane Amanpour, King said: “In twenty years I’ve not photographed so many wounded kids. And it seems like a lot of the world is indifferent about these horrific crimes.”

Asked why children were often the targets, he offered several reasons: “They (the survivors) assumed it was collective punishment. Then they believed it was because of their religious beliefs, that they were Sunni… and also because they were supporting the revolution. So you have this regime that’s trying to kill the revolutionaries; then they’re trying to kill the offspring of the revolutionaries – it’s ethnic genocide.”
