Rights group: Syrian helicopter bomb raids kill 36 in Aleppo
BEIRUT - Thirty-six people, nearly half of them children, were killed on Sunday when Syrian army helicopters dropped improvised "barrel bombs" on the disputed northern city of Aleppo, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Video uploaded by local activists showed a fire in a narrow street covered in debris and dust after one air raid in the Karam el-Beik district. Another showed blackened and twisted wreckage of a vehicle at a busy roundabout.

The Britain-based Observatory said at least 15 of the casualties on Sunday were children.
