Around 70 children were among the 126 people killed by a bomb attack on buses carrying refugees from besieged Syrian towns. People walked outside the buses, surveying the damage as well as bodies lying on the roadway and a grass median.

The death toll from a bomb blast on a crowded Syrian bus convoy outside Aleppo has risen to almost 130, says a monitoring group. The deal stalled following the blast, but thousands were expected to be bussed from towns on Sunday.

The exact reasons for the delay in completing the evacuation deal were also unclear.

The evacuees were bound for regime-held parts of Aleppo.

The evacuation deal had been brokered by Qatar, a supporter of Syrian opposition forces, and Iran, a key government ally.

The rest were aid workers and rebels guarding the convoy.

"Rebels say Damascus breached the terms of the deal, accusing the government of trying to bring out more loyalist fighters than agreed". Abdurrahman said no permission was given for the evacuation to go ahead while Mahmoud said it has been delayed for "logistical reasons".

Saturday's bombing comes within just weeks of another deadly attack involving children in Syria.

The group said earlier Sunday that at least 112 people had been killed in the bombing in the Aleppo suburb of Rashidin.

Evacuees from Madaya called on worldwide organisations to protect them from any possible retaliation, saying they condemned the attack on the other convoy.

She said once many had gathered, there was an explosion that tore some of the children to pieces.

The post Dozens of children dead in Syria evacuees bombing appeared first on Vanguard News.

In return, the government would allow rebels and their families to leave the rebel-held towns of Madaya and Zabadani in northern Damascus to reach Idlib, Xinhua news agency reported. "When the explosion happened, I hugged them both and we fell to the floor", she said.

United Nations relief coordinator Stephen O'Brien said he was "horrified" by the deadly bombing, and that while the United Nations was not involved in the transfer it was ready to "scale up our support to evacuees".

Madaya and Zabadani have been under the control of anti-government fighters but facing siege from forces loyal to the regime.

The evacuation has moved the country closer to a division of its national population along loyalty and sect lines. But only 5,000 left, including 1,300 fighters, the Observatory said.

U.N. Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O'Brien also urged Syria's warring parties to "protect civilians and distinguish between military and civilian targets".
