Bomb Blast Kills 10 In Syria

At least 10 rebel fighters are believed to have been killed, following a suicide bombing, at a border post, in Syria.

A bomb blast at a border crossing between Syria’s opposition-held Idlib province and Turkey killed at least 10 Syrian rebel fighters on Sunday, activists said, as a wave of airstrikes pounded the region and fighting raged in the contested northern city of Aleppo.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said a suicide bomber struck a bus transporting fighters through the Atmeh border post, one of several crossings Syrian rebels use to bring in fighters and supplies.

The monitoring group said the attack killed 10 fighters.

A local activist in the province said the blast killed 40 people. The activist said some 200 rebels from various factions are based near Atmeh, and bring in weapons through the crossing.
