Al-Jazeera television said today that one of its correspondents was wounded in Syria's commercial capital Aleppo and evacuated to neighboring Turkey where he is usually based.
 
Omar Khashram is being "treated in a hospital in Turkey to remove shrapnel from his body," the Doha-based channel said.
 
It said he was wounded "while covering events in the city of Aleppo," subject to an all-out offensive by forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad since Saturday after being partly overrun by rebels.
