Hundreds of Men Missing From Battered East Aleppo, UN Says

Hundreds of Men Missing From Battered East Aleppo, UN SaysHundreds of men appear to have gone missing after fleeing the rebel-held part of Aleppo, Syria, for government-held areas, the United Nations said on Friday, expressing concern that the men may have been detained and mistreated by the Syrian government. “Given the terrible record of arbitrary detention, torture and enforced disappearances by the Syrian government, we are of course deeply concerned about the fate of these individuals,” Rupert Colville, spokesperson for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, said during a press briefing in Geneva. Syrian government forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, have captured approximately 85 percent of east Aleppo and are continuing to bombard areas that remain under the control of opposition forces, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
