Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin arrives for the recording of the Band Aid 30 charity single in west London November 15 Cheap Fletcher Cox Jersey , 2014.
Bruce Springsteen and Coldplay's Chris Martin will perform with U2 Minus 1 in a live World AIDS Day performance on Monday in New York's Time Square, filling in for the group's injured lead singer Bono who is recovering from a cycling accident.

The two rock stars will join the other member of the Irish band, Adam Clayton, The Edge and Larry Mullen Jr., to perform U2 songs. Rapper Kanye West and Carrie Underwood will also perform at the concert on World AIDS Day.

"This year is a World Aids Day like no other," Bono, who was hurt in New York last month, said from Dublin in a statement on the group's website.

"Today, 13 million people have access to life-saving treatment, up from 300,000 just over 10 years ago. Americans don't know the role they've played in this fight. Tonight's event is to inform them and thank them," the 54-year-old rocker added.

A report released on Monday showed the evolution of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) that causes AIDS has slowed and could be a factor contributing to a turning point in the pandemic that began more than 30 years ago.

United Nations data show that in 2013, 35 million people were living with HIV, 2.1 million people were newly infected with the virus and some 1.5 million people died of AIDS.

Bono, who has lobbied for a variety of causes including debt relief, world poverty and AIDS, was hurt when he tried to avoid another cyclist in New York's Central Park. He sustained injuries to his face, shoulder blade and arm, which required hours of surgery.

Three metal plates and 18 screws were needed to repair the bone in his upper arm, which was shattered in six places. He will have intensive therapy but is expected to make a full recovery.

ALEPPO, Syria, July 29 (Xinhua) -- Amid plastic barrels, wires, and countless destroyed belongings, Muhammad Deeb made his way through the rubbles of his shabby house in eastern Aleppo, the worst-hit ancient city that has suffered massive destruction in the Syrian Civil War.

Everything was in gray but portraits of his late wife and son, the only thing that was hanging on the wall. Dusts were wiped off their images, while the face of the 65-year-old man was filled with sorrow, revealing his everlasting innermost grief.

Deeb's house was in the rebel-held part during the battles. A rocket shell that slammed his three-storey house killed his wife and son, yet he survived with wounds in his head.

"Me, my wife and kids were still asleep when something slammed our building. I didn't know what it was at the time, but I lost my wife and son," he told Xinhua at the shattered entrance of his house.

Despite the great loss and misfortune, Deeb said his faith was strong and he would never leave his home, which needs to be rebuilt from scratch. The house is like a shattered box filled with memories of his beloved ones that he would never be able to get over.

"I will not leave, where should I go? I will clean it and even if I had to stay in it like this, I will stay. This is my house, the fruit of my entire life and hard work," he said, choking back the tears.

Houses in other neighborhoods in eastern Aleppo were all under the same condition. Zakariah Akeed, a man in his 60s, lived right next door.

Akeed also lost two floors of his apartment building, but he was fortunate enough that none of his family members got hurt since they fled the neighborhood when the rebels took over in 2012. Now the man has returned and started fixing his house with two of his sons.

"I was happy that I came back, but when I saw the amount of destruction my brain was boiling. We started fixing what could be fixed but the restoration costs lots of money. That's why we put the reparation on hold," Akeed said he would still stay even though with no electricity and shortage of water.

One of his son, Muhammad, said he goes to sleep every day after praying that the house would not collapse over their heads, as the cracks in the wall and the sinking parts of the house all indicate that it could fall down at any minute.

"I left here before the rebels took over and returned to find it badly damaged, and frankly I don't know how to fix this home. I hope I can get some help to rebuild it," he said.

This is just one of the cases of all the families who started to return. Children were playing in the streets with innocent laughters, men in white garments were walking to pray in a half-destroyed mosque, and both the old and the young were trying to bring life back into this doomed area.

Following intense battles, the rebels evacuated eastern Aleppo in December 2016. Now it is like a life-versus-death area, where young
