US State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell on Monday strongly condemned the attack on civilians at a bakery in Hama, Syria, saying, "Such brutal attacks show that the regime [of Syrian President Bashar Assad] has no future."

At least 60 people are reported to have been killed in an air strike on a bakery in the town of Halfaya, in the Syrian province of Hama on Sunday.
