Students killed in Damascus University attack

At least 15 students were killed and 20 others injured when mortar bombs landed on the canteen of Damascus University's college of architecture, state-run media and opposition activists in Syria said, reports Aljazeera.

Al-Ikhbariya television last Thursday showed images of doctors pumping the chests of at least two young men and blood splattered on the floor of what appeared to be an outdoor canteen on the campus, located in the central Baramkeh district. "Terrorists fired mortar rounds on the faculty of architecture in Damascus, and according to initial reports several people have been killed or wounded," the broadcaster said, using the regime term for rebels fighting against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

The latest reports of violence come as the United Nations refugee agency sounded the alarm over reports that Turkey deported Syrians after clashes in a camp where they had sought refuge, but Ankara rejected claims that the refugees were forced back into the war-ravaged country.
