Activists: At least 33 killed in Syrian airstrike

Syrian opposition activists say at least 33 people have been killed in a government airstrike that targeted a busy street in the northern city of Aleppo.
   The airstrike that hit Hillok district in the rebel-held eastern part of the city also wounded dozens of people. That's according to several activists in the area who spoke to The Associated Press.
   It is the latest deadly government strike on the city which has been divided between government forces and rebels for nearly two years.
   The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 33 people were killed in Thursday's attack. The local Aleppo Media Center put the toll at 44 killed.
   Government forces have been carrying out airstrikes on the city, at times hitting schools, mosques and markets.
