In Syria, a deadly explosion have killed at least 100 people in an attack near buses carrying Syrians evacuated from two besieged government-held towns.
The yesterday blast in Rashidin, west of Aleppo, targeted residents who were evacuated from the rebel-besieged towns of Fouaa and Kefraya in Idlib province under a deal reached between the Syrian government and rebels. Rescue workers from the Syrian Civil Defence, also known as the White Helmets, said at least 100 people were killed in the attack.
According to information received, the attack was the result of a car bomb carrying food aid to be delivered to the evacuees in the rebel-held area and accused rebel groups of carrying it out. No one claimed responsibility for the attack.
But pro-government media and the opposition exchanged accusations, each pointing to foreign interference or conspiracies undermining the deal. The stalled population transfer have resumed after explosion.
