6:35 pm
the assault. someone there has died every 25 minutes over the last two days. and overnight, the aleppo children's hospital was obliterated. stephen hamm has the story. >> reporter: aleppo is descending once again into the inferno, the chaos and insanity of a civil war with no winners, only loss and despair. you can see it in this man, digging for survivors with his bare hands. "this was a residential area" shouted this man. "we're not terrorists." the air strikes pounded their neighborhood, crushing people beneath the rubble of their own homes and destroying one of the few hospitals left in the rebel-held section of aleppo.
6:36 pm
it was hit by a strike overnight. the international aid group supporting it, doctors without borders, sailed the hospital was a center for child medicine. "that's my family," cried this man. "my whole family." also killed in the carnage was one of the last pediatricians still working in rebel-controlled aleppo. we don't know who launched these air strikes. russia says it wasn't responsible, but the syrian regime and its foreign backers are trying to recapture all of aleppo. and for those in the firing line, the syrian cease-fire is meaningless. even hospitals where syrian goes to heal their wounds, are instead places where they risk being slaughtered.
6:37 pm
doctors without borders said today that the hospital was targeted. in fact, scott, many of the hospitals that the group supports in syria do not give their g.p.s. coordinates to the syrian regime, fearing that unstead of being protected, they'll be deliberately attacked. >> pelley: stephen hamm reporting from istanbul tonight. holly, thank you. well, it was a u.s. air strike that destroyed a hospital in afghanistan last october. and today, we're told that a general officer and 15 others have been disciplined. at least 42 people were killed. and as in aleppo, this, too, was a doctors without borders hospital. a pentagon investigation to be released tomorrow will say that the flight crew mistook the hospital for an enemy building nearby. there will be no criminal charges, but the reprimands will effectively end their military careers. today, more than establishment republicans got on the trump train, including a former

6:39 pm
vote for the billionaire businessman if he is the party's nominee. >> i have millions of more votes, hundreds of more delegates. >> faced with a choice between trump and cruz, boehner's comments are another sign that stebment republicans are accepting what may be the inevitable. trump already has 79% of the delegates he needs to secure the nomination. trump picked up two more endorsements from congressional republicans today. scott, boehner saved his kindest words for bernie sanders. he might have said he disagrees with him on all the issues but he called human a nice guy and the most honest politician in the race. >> pelley: >> pelley: julianna goldman for us tonight. jewel an athank you. today, boone county, indiana, was hit by a tornado that knocked down trees and damaged buildings. nobody hurt though. there were floods in biloxi, mississippi, where there was no salvaging this scrap yard until the water receded. in gulfport, more than 20 people had to be rescued. today, oil closed at $46 a barrel. that is 20% lower than a year

6:41 pm
>> reporter: is this the day of reckoning? >> this is the day of wreckology. >> reporter: walker wants state lawmakers to impose alaska's first income tax in 35 years and cut the annual check each resident gets for their schaeffer oil revenue. oil companies would pay more, too. >> tax goes up, credits go down. there will be less production. >> reporter: kara moriarity represents alaska's oil and gas companies and says they will be forced to further cut production and jobs. last year, there were 19 working oil rigs in alaska. today, there are 10. >> when we fail, the state fails right along with us. to continue to ask more from us at a time where we're losing money, it will have economic impact. >> i applied to, minimum, four jobs a day. >> reporter: rhodney cantu was laid off when shell recently abandoned the plans to drill off alaska's north coast. >> families are concerned. what are they going to do? how are they going to make next month's rent or mortgage? >> reporter: do you think alaskaans are ready to pay an

6:46 pm
pictures. before i send the video, i can choose from a number of filters. this one show you just how fast i'm going. last year, 18-year-old christal mcghee from atlanta allegedly used this speed filt tore take a selfie and show her friends she was driving 107 miles per hour. moments later, she crashed into a driver who was seriously injured. mcghee survived but continued to post pictures of herself while on a stretcher with the caption, "lucky to be alive." >> i have heard teenagers say that things don't feel real till you see them on social media. >> reporter: lisa damour is a child psychologist. you're talking about situations where people are seriously injured. >> yeah, yeah. >> reporter: and in some cases, death. >> it's so tough with teenagers because their better judgment can be over-ridden by their wish to be connected to their friends. >> reporter: in a statement, snapchat said, "we actively discourage our community from uzbekistan the speeld filter while driving." the company says a "do not snap
