MORE THAN 60 civilians were killed today in a strike by Syrian regime warplanes on people queueing outside a bakery in the rebel-held town of Halfaya in the central province of Hama, a watchdog said.

AFP reports that the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which had earlier reported “dozens” killed, said the death toll could rise as at least 50 people had also been critically wounded.

Reuters said that this could be one of the deadliest strikes during the country’s civil war, with activists saying there were women and children among the dead.
