By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - The World Health Organization (WHO) called on Tuesday for dozens of sick and wounded people in the embattled eastern part of the Syrian city of Aleppo to be evacuated through safe corridors for treatment.

"We are talking about only 35 doctors left in east Aleppo to take care of hundreds of wounded people, and the number is increasing," she said.

Decades after the Cold War, and frequently forgotten by a public preoccupied with the threat of terrorism, the United States still fields hundreds of Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs), dotted in silos across rural America. Most airmen join the Air Force to fly, but here on the chilly, windswept plains of North Dakota, 50 miles (80 kilometers) below the Canadian border, crews work around the clock practicing for a launch they hope will never happen.
