6 killed in Syria hospital assault

Beirut, March 21

Artillery shells fired from government areas hit a major hospital in a rebel-controlled town in northwestern Syria on Sunday, killing at least six patients, including a child, and wounding medical staff.

The shells landed at the entrance and in the courtyard of the hospital in Atareb, a town in rural western Aleppo. The hospital is located underground, a tactic used by the opposition to avoid targeting in the conflict-prone area. — AP
