BEIRUT - The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said air strikes likely to have been carried out by Russian warplanes killed 69 people since Sunday near the Euphrates River in the eastern Syrian province of Deir al-Zor.

The Russian defense ministry did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment on Tuesday's report by the Britain-based monitoring group.

The Observatory, which identified the victims as civilians, said the air strikes had hit civilian encampments on the western bank of the Euphrates, and vessels crossing the river to the eastern side.
