Bana Alabed, the little girl who live-tweeted her experiences from inside Aleppo as it was bombed and ravaged, has been rescued.
Less than a week ago, she was Skyping with a CNN reporter and talking about her uncertain fate. Her tweets, which were co-authored by her mother, often included pleading messages to the outside world. When she wasn’t begging to be rescued, she was openly wondering if she was living her final moments.
Please save us now. – Bana #Aleppo
