In this photo taken on Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012, a Syrian boy reads a torn paper inside his destroyed school classroom, in Aleppo, Syria. Syrian rebels battled regime troops south of Damascus on Friday and Internet and most telephone lines were cut for a second day, but the government reopened the road to the capital’s airport in a sign the fighting could be calming, activists said.
