Scenes from the relentless war in Syria

by Reuters

A massive explosion in Syria.

Amateur video which can not be independently verified by Reuters purports to show a barrel bomb dropped by government forces.

In the aftermath -- residents walk through a street broken apart by a war that has caused millions to flee.

For many of those left behind their lives have been ruptured by the relentless conflict, with few signs of help on the way.

Across the country familiar plumes of smoke mark the horizon.

The war has already claimed the lives of more than 160,000 people-- a conflict spilling over Syria's borders with no resolution in sight.
