Syrian planes bomb olive press, many killed

Syrian warplanes bombed an olive press factory in the country's north on Tuesday, killing and wounding dozens of people, including farmers who were waiting to convert their olives to oil, activists said.


Two activist groups - the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committees - say the factory is west of the city of Idlib. The LCC says at least 20 people were killed and many others wounded in the raid, while the Observatory said "tens were killed or wounded." (AP)
