Airstrikes in northern Syria kill at least 43


BEIRUT — Government airstrikes on rebel areas in northern Syria killed at least 43 people and leveled buildings, forcing residents to search mounds of rubble for bodies trapped underneath, anti-regime activists said today.

The strikes late Wednesday and early today hit at least five towns in Idlib and Aleppo provinces.

Rights groups say the airstrikes often hit civilian areas. And this week, Human Rights Watch accused Syria of using cluster munitions, which the New York-based group says endanger civilians.
