Syria attack: At least 28 killed in ambush on bus


ISLAMABAD, December 31 (online): A bus has been attacked in eastern Syria, killing at least 28 people, reportedly soldiers.
Syrian state media said the bus was targeted on Wednesday in the restive Deir al-Zour province, saying it was “citizens” killed.
But other sources including a monitoring group said soldiers were on board, giving a higher death toll.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) attributed the attack to the Islamic State (IS) jihadist group, saying 37 soldiers died.
