Syria cluster bomb attack ‘kills 10 children’
Activists in Syria say a government jet has dropped a cluster bomb on a playground, leaving 10 children dead.
Video posted on the internet showed children’s bodies on the ground with their mothers grieving over them.
The children were killed when a MiG fighter bombed a playground in the village of Deir al-Asafir, east of Damascus, opposition activists said.
Intensive fighting has continued around the capital. Rebel fighters captured at least part of an airbase on Sunday.
Further footage of the playground attack showed what appeared to be cluster bomblets on the ground.
In one video, two girls could be seen lying dead in a street while another showed a distraught mother standing, apparently inside a clinic, over her daughter’s lifeless body.
