US-led strikes have killed 850 people in Syria, 50 civilians
BEIRUT - Air strikes by US-led forces in Syria have killed 865 people, including 50 civilians, since the start of the campaign in late September against Islamic State militants, a group monitoring the war said on Wednesday.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the majority of the deaths, 746, were Islamic State fighters and said the actual figure could be much higher.

Eight of the civilians were children and five were women, the Observatory said. It said 68 members of al-Qaida-affiliated Nusra Front were also killed in the air strikes, which started early on Sept. 23.
