Syrian Air Strike Hits School, At Least 16 Dead, Activists Say

BEIRUT, Sept 29 (Reuters) - At least 16 people, most of them students, were killed in an air strike that hit a secondary school in the rebel-held Syrian city of Raqqa on Sunday, activists said. Fighting continued across the country including in the outskirts of the capital, underlining the relentless nature of the civil war in the face of international efforts to destroy Syria's chemical arms and revive peace talks.

Videos posted online by activists showed the bloody and charred remains of bodies said to have been from the air strike in Raqqa. Some of the victims appeared to be young men, possibly in their teens. The death toll from a car bomb on Friday in the town of Rankus north of Damascus also rose to 34, the Observatory added.

More than 100,000 people have been killed in Syria's conflict, which started as a peaceful uprising in March 2011 and turned into a civil war after a violent government crackdown on civilian demonstrators.

Reporting restrictions make it difficult to independently verify events inside Syria.

As the death toll increases, the U.N. is "hoping" for a peace conference in mid-November. The U.N. is delirious.

There's a civil war going on. # happens.

Isn't there enough threads on the Syrian conflict already?

Why not simply add it to one of them?

Every minor incident doesn't need to be documented in it's own thread.

Yeh, well, I wouldn't believe a word of it given that it is coming from the mouth of an 'activist'.

It's a proxy war, no two ways about it....and there is every chance these rebels bombed the school given the 'rebels' are Islamic Extremists and they just can't stand Western education (but the media won't spin it like the way they did with the Nigerian massacre because in this article they want you supporting the rebels aka islamic extremists, but in the other news they want you to hate muslims in general)

It's all crap...those poor poor people.
