Government Airstrikes on Syrian Market Kill More Than 80

ANTAKYA, Turkey — Government airstrikes on a rebel-held suburb of the Syrian capital, Damascus, on Sunday killed more than 80 people and wounded about 200, according to local activists and monitoring organizations.

The attacks struck a crowded market area in the city of Douma, leaving streets strewn with rubble, scattered merchandise and destroyed cars. Anti-government activists in the area posted videos online of blood-covered victims being raced to local clinics and rows of dead bodies lined up for burial.
