Syria: Human Rights Watch says attacks amount to war crimes

The Syrian government has been accused of repeatedly carrying out indiscriminate and sometimes deliberate attacks on civilians, amounting to war crimes.

The group Human Rights Watch has drawn up a comprehensive survey of attacks by Syrian military aircraft against rebel-held parts of the country.

The organisation's investigators documented attacks at 50 different sites, in which it said more than 150 civilians were killed.
