Death toll in bomb attack on Syria evacuees hits 43: monitor

AFP  |  Beirut 

At least 43 people were killed today in a suicide car bomb attack on buses carrying Syrians evacuated from two besieged government-held towns, a monitor said in an updated toll.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said most of the dead were evacuees, but they also included several rebels who had been guarding the buses at a transit point in Rashidin, west of Aleppo.
