This file photo taken on March 14, 2015 shows a young boy walking past a makeshift barricade made of wreckages of buses to obstruct the view of regime snipers and to keep people safe in the rebel-held side of the northern Syrian city of Aleppo.

"Monument" has drawn fierce criticism from far-right groups. KARAM AL-MASRI / AFP.
