BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian activists have raised to 65 the death toll from airstrikes around a market area in the northern city of Aleppo the previous day.
The British-based Syrian Observatory of Human Rights says mostly civilians were killed when government helicopters dumped explosives-laden barrel bombs around the Masaken Hanano market on Sunday.
It was one of the worst bombings in the Syrian military's nine-day air offensive against Aleppo and its surroundings.
