In Ghouta's shelters, terrified Syrians await the next bomb

  In Ghouta's shelters, terrified Syrians await the next bomb As the Syrian army pushes deeper into eastern Ghouta under cover of a hammering bombardment, the 400,000 civilians the UN says live in the enclave have crowded into dark basements to cower from the ceaseless bombs. Under cracked ceilings that bulge downwards from the force of previous strikes, they string sheets across the basement to partition off rooms for entire families."Look at it. It is completely uninhabitable. It is not even safe to put chickens in. There is no bathroom, just one toilet, and there are 300 people," said a man in a shelter in the region's biggest urban centre, Douma.

The 4-year-old pup was returned to a shelter in Atlanta for being "too nice." Her previous owner wanted an aggressive watchdog and Helena is not that at all.

An intruder would stand a better chance of being smothered with licks and love from Helena than being bitten and attacked.

The man who gave her back to the shelter also suggested a woman might be a better parent "because they are more into that petting stuff," recounted LifeLine Animal Project staffer Karen Hirsch.

An air strike on a school in Syria's Eastern Ghouta late Monday killed 15 children and two women who were using its basement as a bomb shelter, a monitor said. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the bombing raid hit Arbin, a key town in the dwindling rebel-held enclave of Ghouta that has been under attack by government troops for over a month."Three missiles from a single air strike hit the school, where the underground level was being used as a shelter," said Rami Abdel Rahman, who heads the Britain-based monitor."Rescue workers are still searching for survivors," he told AFP.
