Syrian opposition activists say at least 13 people, most of them children, have died in a government airstrike that hit a bus in the country’s east.
The Local Coordination’s Committees group says the bus was carrying civilians traveling to the capital, Damascus, from the eastern Deir el-Zour province when it was struck in the village of Shoula on Wednesday.
The group says 13 people were killed.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the death toll at 16, including 10 children. It says the death toll was likely to rise because there were many wounded.
