68 children among 126 killed in Aleppo blast

Latest reports from Syria say more than half of those killed in the bombing near an evacuee convoy on the outskirts of Aleppo were children.
The so-called Syrian Observatory for human rights says at least 68 children were among those killed in the blast in the militant-held Rashideen area. The death toll from the car bombing has risen to 126,with more fatalities feared as some two-hundred people have been injured. Latest reports from Syria suggest that evacuations from four besieged Syrian towns are expected to continue following a brief halt on Saturday. Over three-thousand civilians are due to leave Fu’ah and Kafriya as part of a deal between the government and foreign-backed militants. In exchange, some two-hundred people, most of them militants will be evacuated from Zabadani and Madaya.
