Syria: Children 'Killed By Cluster Bomb'

Syria: Children 'Killed By Cluster Bomb'

Syrian rebels claim a cluster bomb dropped from a regime fighter jet killed 10 children as they played outdoors in a village near Damascus.

The youngsters, all under 15, had gone outside during a lull in fighting in Deir al Asafir, eight miles east of the capital, when a single fighter jet dropped ordnance.

Video footage taken by activists showed the bloodied bodies of children lying in the street as a sobbing woman picked one of them up.

Locals claimed to have found 70 "bomblets" - smaller munitions forming a cluster bomb which are held inside a container and spread over a wider area.

Abu Kassem, an activist in the village, said: "None of those killed were older than 15 years old.

1. The video evidence provided is very weak.

Probably adequate for republicans.
