At least 38 foreign fighters allied to Syria's regime were killed in an overnight bombing raid near the country's eastern border with Iraq, a monitor said today.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the strike on the town of Al-Hari was one of the deadliest on forces allied with Syria's government, but could not immediately identify who carried it out.

Syrian state media reported the attack overnight on Sunday and accused the US-led coalition against the Islamic State group, saying a number of people were killed.
