Assad says Aleppo bombing was justified.


Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has said the bombing of eastern Aleppo, which his forces recaptured from rebels last month, was justified. "This is the price sometimes, but at the end, the people are liberated from the terrorists," he told French media. The UN says air strikes by the government and its allies on a civilian-packed area in the battle's final stages were probably a war crime. Russia has joined Syria's strikes on anti-government rebels since 2015.
