Activists say airstrike on Syrian school kills 9

BEIRUT - A government airstrike hit a school Wednesday in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo, killing at least nine people, including three children, activists reported.


The airstrike hit the Ein Jalout school in an eastern neighborhood of Aleppo, said the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the local Aleppo Media Center. Both reported the same death toll, but said numbers were expected to rise because of the extent of the explosion. (AP)
