He was injured in the blast and was running away like everyone else. But a bystander thought that was suspicious and tackled him. Police grilled him and ransacked his apartment.

It marked two years since the start of hostilities; the number of war refugees passed one million; and it was was the bloodiest month to date, with more than 6,000 people killed. Neither the pro-Assad forces, nor the group of rebels opposing them have gained much ground recently, and little or no progress has been made by international agencies to halt the bloodshed. The following photographs come from across Syria, taken over the past six weeks, showing just some of the devastation in Aleppo, Deir al-Zor, Homs, Deraa, Idlib, and Damascus.

It was the socks that really pushed this over the top.
So the White House released their April Fool’s joke, a video with a kid president, which would be pretty unremarkable except this kid KILLS IT. It’s like a minute long, just watch it.
“I think I’m stuck.”
Today in the only April Fool’s joke we’ll post on this blog (well, barring this one, probably).
I need more of this amazing child in my life.
