See wedding photos amid damage in war-torn Syria


Newlyweds Nada Merhi, 18, and Hassan Youssef, 27, posed for wedding pictures amid heavily damaged homes in the city of Homs in Syria. Merhi wore a stunning white wedding gown. Youssef, a soldier in Syrian President Bashar Assad’s army, was clothed in a camouflage uniform, according to multiple media outlets.
