Airstrike near Syrian capital kills at least 7
Syrian activists say a government airstrike in a village near Damascus has killed at least seven people, including a mother, father and three children from the same family.


The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the air raid took place Sunday in al-Barika, southeast of the capital. A video posted online said to be from the site showed dead bodies in the back of a truck and body parts and blood scattered in the street. The video appeared genuine and corresponded to other activist reports. (AP)
