Activists: Syrian Air Raid in Eastern City Kills 5

Syrian opposition activists say that government warplanes have struck an eastern city that is a stronghold of an Islamic militant group, killing five civilians.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the jets struck a target near the headquarters of the al-Qaida breakaway group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in the provincial capital of Raqqa on Wednesday, also wounding dozens of others.
