A gripping photo out of Damascus last week showed a rescuer lifting a baby from the rubble of an alleged airstrike by forces loyal to President Bashar Assad. In a rare bit of good news out of Syria, an image shot Monday by the same Reuters photographer, Bassam Khabieh, gives us a glimpse of the lucky baby back with his family, including his sisters. Maria, at right, was also rescued from the rubble.
