Fighting in Syria's besieged eastern Aleppo has killed 338 people since Sept. 23, including 106 children, and 846 have been wounded, including 261 children, the World Health Organization said on Friday. "We are asking for four things: stop the killing, stop attacks on health care, let the sick and wounded out and let the aid in," Rick Brennan, WHO's head of emergency risk management and humanitarian response, told a U.N. briefing in Geneva. "The situation really is unfathomable." Russia and Syrian government forces launched a campaign to recapture the rebel-held sector of Aleppo, Syria's biggest city, this month, abandoning a ceasefire a week after it took effect.
Trading volume in Deutsche Bank's debt has more than doubled this week and soared 15-fold in a month as investors rush to offload the embattled German lender's bonds. All markets have been affected because Deutsche has significant trading relationships with the world's largest finance houses. The International Monetary Fund identified it earlier this year as a bigger potential risk to the wider financial system than any other global bank.
