Bomb blast on bus convoy kills, wounds dozens outside Syria's Aleppo

Bomb blast on bus convoy kills, wounds dozens outside Syria's AleppoBy John Davison BEIRUT (Reuters) – A bomb blast hit a bus convoy waiting to enter Aleppo on Saturday, killing and wounding dozens of people after an evacuation deal between Syria’s warring sides halted and stranded thousands at two transit points on the city outskirts. British-based monitor the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights counted 24 dead and dozens more wounded. The blast hit buses in the Rashidin area on Aleppo’s outskirts, which had been waiting to cross from rebel-held territory into the government-controlled city itself, carrying people evacuated from two Shi’ite villages on Friday.
