Diego Barcia Batista

In June 2013 was killed in Syria the Spanish and Uruguayan aid worker Diego Martín Barcia Batista, 36 years old, being this confirmed by personal papers that he possessed at the time of his death. According to information published by De Mediawerkgroep Sirië, Diego could have been mistaken for a foreign mercenary. It was initially believed he was involved in an attempted assault of a police station in Damascus, but this was a regrettable error. The volunteer had just arrived in Syria to join a non-governmental organization for humanitarian aid when he was captured by an armed group. Diego Barcia adds to the list of foreign civilian workers killed in action while they perform their humanitarian work; another unsung hero without rewards nor medals.scale2.php
