Eleven Killed in Syria Mortar Attacks

Ad Feedback

The bloodshed continues in Syria despite a United Nations presence there.

Syrian activists say at least 11 people were killed Tuesday, including four women and two children, when Syrian forces fired mortar shells into a farming village.

The attack followed suicide bombings on Monday, which killed at least nine people and wounded more than 100.

The violence in Syria was supposed to end on April 12 when the U.N. brokered a cease-fire between the Syrian regime and opposition forces. But that cease-fire never really took hold.

The U.N. says more than 9,000 people have died in the 13-months old conflict.
