PARIS - France's Foreign Minister said on Monday attacks on hospitals in Syria by the Syrian government and its allies were war crimes.

"I strongly condemn the new deliberate strike against a hospital," Jean-Marc Ayrault said in a statement. "The attacks against medical facilities ...constitute war crimes."

Seven people were killed in air strikes in Syria on a hospital supported by Medecins Sans Frontieres, the charity's France president said on Monday, adding that he believed Russia or Syrian government forces were behind the attack.
