Syrian forces kill 36 in bombardment east of capital: opposition

Government forces killed at least 36 people, 14 of them children, in a bombardment of rebel-held areas on the outskirts of Damascus on Sunday, Syrian opposition activists said.

Video footage showed women weeping over the dismembered bodies of children strewn across a field in Eastern Ghouta, near an air defense base on the edge of the town of Muleiha, 5 km (3 miles) east of Damascus.
