About 200 killed in air strike on bakery in central Syria

Dozens of people were killed and wounded in an air strike on a bakery in Syria’s central Hama province, activists said, with some reporting up to 200 dead.

“We cannot get an exact figure yet because we are still confused about which are dead and which are wounded,” one activist said.

The strike hit Halfaya, a town recently seized by rebels in a new push to take territory in Hama.

Opposition activist groups say more than 44,000 people have been killed, including nearly 31,000 civilians.

One activist told Reuters news agency of the latest air strike: “We cannot get an exact figure yet because we are still confused about which are dead and which are wounded.”

There are fears the toll of casualties could be considerably higher.
