(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Amnesty International has released satellite images showing the extent of artillery bombardment in the Syrian city of Aleppo where rebels are struggling to fight off an offensive by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad. The London-based international human rights group said on Wednesday (August 8) both sides fighting in Syria's most populous city might be held criminally accountable for their failure to protect civilians. It said the images, obtained from commercial satellites over July 23- to August 1, showed more than 600 craters, probably from artillery shelling, dotting Aleppo's surrounding areas. The craters were represented with yellow dots in the images.
