A somber video out of Syria appears to show a mother saying goodbye to her children following an alleged attack with chemical weapons on the outskirts of Damascus on Wednesday. Activists and members of the Syrian opposition have reported a death toll ranging between 136 and 1,300 victims.

Though the footage could not be independently verified, the gut-wrenching images show a woman hugging a deceased child in silence, then briefly examining another. She then covers the bodies, composes herself and steps away. The moment she pauses by a pillar says more than any description of the scene could.
