Suicide bomber targeting children hits Syrian school, killing 6
DAMASCUS, Syria -- DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — A suicide bomber detonated an explosives-laden truck in a central, Shiite Syrian village on Monday, state media reported, killing six in the latest attack to underscore the growing sectarian nature of the country's three-year-old conflict.
Three children and a woman were among the dead in the early morning bombing at a school in Sabtiyeh, near the city of Homs, official news agency SANA said, adding that some 40 others were wounded. Footage aired on state television showed panicked residents rushing to ambulances carrying wounded children.
"What did these children do to be killed?" a man angrily shouted.
