The Wall Street Journal: Dozens killed after bomb hits buses carrying Syrian evacuees

A car bomb near Aleppo city targeted a convoy of buses carrying evacuees from two besieged towns, killing dozens of people, according to Syrian state media and rebels.

Those killed in Saturday’s attack included civilians and pro-regime fighters who had left their homes in the Idlib province towns of Fua and Kafraya, which had for years been besieged by opposition rebels. Rebel fighters who were escorting the convoy were also killed.

Initial casualty tolls varied. Syrian state media blamed the attack on “terrorists,” the term it uses to refer to armed rebels, saying they had targeted some of the 75 buses and 20 ambulances carrying evacuees.
