Air raids on Syrian city Raqqa kill 39

Syrian warplanes bombarded the northeastern provincial capital of Raqqa for a second consecutive day on Wednesday, killing at least 39 people, opposition activists said.


The Local Coordination Committee, a grassroots activists' organization, said 17 people were killed in one raid alone, on a square in the city. Video footage showed fighters putting dismembered bodies in an ambulance. (Reuters)
