Syria's northern city of Aleppo was once a thriving commercial hub with a proud history dating back millennia. Since the Syrian civil war began in 2011, much of the city has been devastated by intense shelling and airstrikes. As government forces work to wrest back control of Aleppo from an armed rebellion, which is battling against the Assad family's 40-year rule, aid groups are cautioning that civilians have fewer places to go while their city gets hammered. The U.N. human rights office said Tuesday that government forces had killed at least 82 civilians in the eastern neighborhoods, reported the AFP. "The worst humanitarian tragedy of the 21st century is unfolding before our eyes," said France's U.N. Ambassador Francois Delattre, according to the Associated Press.

Riot police fired tear gas into the demonstrations in Caracas. Venezuela's opposition rallied again this week against President Nicolas Maduro's plan to rewrite the constitution, accusing him of delaying elections to cling to power. A month of protests in the streets of the capital Caracas and elsewhere have led to the deaths of at least 37 people on both sides. Maduro's approval rating has sunk to around 20 percent after years of rising inflation and shortages in food and medicine. The International Monetary Fund predicts inflation in Venezuela will reach 1,600 percent this year.
