Amnesty: Russian Airstrikes Killed 200 Civilians in Syria

Amnesty International added to the criticism of Russia's air campaign in Syria with a new report Wednesday saying the bombings have killed at least 200 civilians in Homs, Idlib and Aleppo provinces.

The rights group said the Russian airstrikes have hit homes and hospitals, and that its research showed there were no fighters or military targets nearby."Some Russian airstrikes appear to have directly attacked civilians or civilian objects by striking residential areas with no evident military target and even medical facilities, resulting in deaths and injuries to civilians," Amnesty Middle East and North Africa Program Director Philip Luther said. "Such attacks may amount to war crimes." READ MORE OF THIS STORY ON VOA NEWS ONLINE
