Activists: Rocket attack on Syrian capital kills 5

BEIRUT – Syrian activists say a barrage of rockets has struck a contested district on the northeastern edge of Damascus, killing at least five people.

The activists say several rockets slammed into the Barzeh district, a residential area where rebels fighting to topple President Bashar Assad operate.

The opposition Barzeh media center and a militant website claimed the Syrian military fired 14 rockets on Barzeh late Thursday and early Friday, leaving people buried under the rubble.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed a barrage of shells that killed several people but said the nature of the attack and number of casualties was not clear.
