be two hours from the start of the am busch before french aircraft would arrive on the scene. these soldiers were on their own. one of them went down. another rushed to his side and dragged him back to the cover of the suv. their position at the suv was about to be overrun, so they did the only thing they could. ran to a location that might provide better cover. except for the smoke from the grenades and a few scrubbed trees, there was no cover and no escape. the soldier wearing the helmet camera went down. soon the camera stopped moving and some of the enemy fighters came into view. and then a final blast filled the frame. from what was parnlly a round fired at point blank range. you would expect the enemy to take no prisoners but you would not expect american soldiers to be so exposed without any backup. pentagon's investigation into

be surrounded and activists inside are saying civilians are fleeing underground shelters as troops advance. an aid convoy scheduled to try to get into ghouta did not go and humanitarian quarters set up were empty again. it's not clear how long it will take syrian forces to retake syrian forces. what is clear, once it does, there will be a massive reconstruction effort needed. here in aleppo, 14 months after the government forces retook it from opposition forces, there is still no power in half of the city. the half of the city that does have power only gets it about 12 hours a day, and that is one of the many steps needed to rebuild. seth doane, cbs news, aleppo. well, coming up on "cbs this morning" -- >> reporter: this cobalt is found in your smartphone and electric car. much of it comes from the drc, but our investigation shows how some of it is mined by children. that's coming up on "cbs this
