Syria says 29 students killed in mortar attack

A mortar slammed into a ninth-grade classroom in the Damascus suburbs on Tuesday, killing 29 students and a teacher, according to state media, as the civil war closed in on President Bashar Assad's seat of power.

 

The state-run news agency SANA blamed the attack on terrorists, the term the regime uses for rebels who are fighting to topple the government. (AP)
