Air strike kills 12 in Syria high school: NGO
BEIRUT (AFP) - An air strike on a high school in a rebel-held city of northern Syria killed 12 people, most of them pupils, on Sunday, a monitoring group said.
"The Syrian air force bombed a technical high school in the city of Raqa, killing 12 people, most of them children under 18, and wounding many other people, some of them seriously," the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The Britain-based group posted video footage showing mangled bodies, one of them lying under schoolbooks. Its authenticity could not immediately be verified.
"There was panic with children crying as they sought to take shelter," the Observatory quoted a survivor as saying.
