While the grim side of life in North Korea has had plenty of exposure, photographer Ullrik Pedersen captured the colorful side of North Korea, offering a new image of one of the world's most restrictive states.

Although the DPRK officially describes itself as a Juche Korean-style socialist state where elections are held, it is widely considered a dictatorship. The country has been described as totalitarian, Stalinist state with an elaborate cult of personality around the Kim family. Juche, an ideology of self-reliance initiated by the country's first President Kim Il-sung, is the official state ideology. The means of production are owned by the state through state-run enterprises and collectivized farms, and most services such as healthcare, education, housing and food production are state funded or subsidized.

Filmed February 3, the video shows the damage of the buildings and infrastructure in the rebel-held neighborhoods of Mysar, Sha'ar and Tareek al Bab neighborhoods of Aleppo due to the explosive barrels dropped by Syrian military aircraft. Also shown are some of the bodies of the victims, while residents look for any survivors under the rubble.

Translation of Abu Yasser, one of the “Sha’ar” neighborhood residents:

When the aircraft drop the explosive barrel, my family was in the car that was destroyed and all my family where effected. I have seen three barrels drop with my own eye on the Bayan hospital in the Sha'ar neighborhood which led to deaths and injuries. While many other barrels were dropped on other areas. I see no goal to the regime from this bombardment other than the killing of the people, and the conventions only encourage the regime to hit and kill more with no one to stop him, while people cannot find a place to run to other than the tents and the open wilderness, where should they go.

Translation of Hassan, a civilian aiding in clearing up the rubble in the Mysar neighborhoood:

Here in this area an explosive barrel was thrown down around 10.30 am and there is no machinery to help us with lifting the rubble. There are still children under there that haven’t been taken out. We have been working for the past three hours with no machinery that can help us save the children under the rubbles. We save some children from here, they were in the corner of the house and we saved their lives. But here the children are stuck and we desperately need machinery to save these children.

A Day in the Emergency Room in Aleppo...
Aleppo
By Simon Letellier
18 Jun 2013

During the armed conflict in Syria, hospitals and their staff are frequently targeted by Bashar Al Assad's regime. The Syrian regime considers aiding rebels in any way an act of terrorism. The revolution has changed the stability throughout the country and now even large hospitals are in need of medical supplies, equipment, and staff.

Doctors and their staff at this makeshift hospital in Aleppo are overwhelmed by the amount of civilians and Free Syrian soldiers wounded by regime airstrikes, snipers, and various types of bombardments. The photographs were taken in the emergency room of a field hospital in Aleppo. Doctors were on standby in the emergency room cleaning medical tools and attending to patients when the bombs began to fall. Near the hospital's location, an airstrike commenced and the wounded begin pouring in.

The first of the injured to make it to the hospital doors was a young girl. She was carried in by an FSA soldier who found her lying next to her deceased mother in the street after the bombs hit. The young girl was covered in blood and peppered with shrapnel, screaming for her mother while her mother's corpse was carried into the hospital.

The soldier explained that the little girl and her mother were walking together when the bomb exploded nearby, immediately killing the mother. Doctors worked frantically to extract shrapnel from the little girl’s body. After giving her drugs to calm her down, they proceeded to the X-Ray room. The young girl's father arrived from work and discovered his injured daughter laying on the surgical table, then collapsed and began to cry. Due to the quick response of the medical staff, the little girl survived but two young Free Syrian Army soldiers who arrived shortly after her died.

Another casualty was a young man who was transported to the hospital by a soldier from the Free Syrian Army. The man was shot twice by a sniper. The first bullet went through his chest and the second struck him in his back and was still in his body. The doctor hurried to stop hemorrhaging and didn't hesitate to put his finger into the hole to stop the bleeding. To calm the patient down, they gave him drugs and taped his eyes shut to avoid hallucinations. After an X-Ray, he was sent to the operation room. Doctors did not succeed in removing the bullet from his back but he later survived.

This is a daily occurrence for the doctors and staff of this hospital in Aleppo and many others throughout the country that are doing their best with what they have to stop the bleeding of Syria's conflict.
