Death Toll From Aleppo Bus Convoy Bomb Attack at Least 126: Observatory

Children were also among the dead, according to several reports, while more than 100 people were reported to be injured. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 98 evacuees from the northern towns of Fuaa and Kafraya were killed when an explosives-laden vehicle hit their buses at a transit point west of Aleppo on Saturday.

Pictures posted on state media showed what appeared to be the aftermath of the explosion, with bodies lying on the ground and fires belching out thick black plumes of smoke.

Video shown on Syrian state-run television showed heavily damaged and burned buses parked on the side of a road.

Saturday's bombing comes within just weeks of another deadly attack involving children in Syria. The buses headed to the Jebrin area for a temporary housing center equipped with food and medical supplies, SANA said.

There has been no claim of responsibility for the attack.

A media unit run by Damascus ally Hezbollah said the attack was carried out by a suicide auto bomb and killed at least 40 people.

"We are anxious about the reaction of the regime for what happened", he said.

The exchange agreement, hammered out between the Assad regime and opposition forces on March 30, called for the evacuation of thousands of civilians and fighters from besieged parts of Syria.

In Syria, more than three thousand people are expected to be evacuated on Sunday from four areas as part of a population transfer.

Madaya and Zabadani, once summer resorts to Damascus, have been shattered under the cruelty of a government siege. They were at the site to ensure the convoy's passage, Ahrar al-Sham said. The group said it is investigating the blast to try to determine who was responsible. Later in the day, a bomber blew up an explosive-laden auto near the convoy, killing large groups of people, mostly children.

The Syrian Red Crescent said three of its workers were among the wounded.

"After six years of war and human carnage in Syria... six years of heartbreak for so many Syrian families... there comes a new horror that must break the heart of anyone who has one", the statement by UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake said Sunday.

The evacuation deal was brokered by Qatar, a longtime supporter of Syrian opposition forces, and Iran, a key regime ally.

Mr. Dujarric added that the evacuations were being conducted in accordance with the agreement reached pursuant to the "Four Towns" Agreement, covering Foah, Kefraya, Madaya and Zabadani.
