Activists are reporting that an airstrike on a prison run by Al Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria has killed at least 39.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 39 people were killed, including many fighters from the Nusra Front as well as detainees in the northwestern town of Maaret al-Numan.
The Local Coordination Committees, another activist group, said the airstrike killed 51.
The Observatory said the warplanes fired four missiles that hit the Islamic court that includes a jail as well as a nearby road linking the court with a market.
