Baby pulled from rubble as air strikes continue to devastate Syrian city of Idlib

Anti-government activists say air strikes have killed at least 12 people at a market yesterday and other targets in the north-western Syrian city of Idlib.

The number of casualties are expected to rise.

The Local Coordination Committees, another anti-government monitoring group, says the strikes killed 13 and wounded 29, with most casualties occurring in a vegetable market.

Idlib is controlled by a coalition of Syrian rebel groups that includes al Qaida's local branch, the Nusra Front.
