A missile attack on a rebel-held area in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo has killed at least 10 people, activists said.
The Local Co-ordination Committees said women and children were among those killed in today's attack on the Maghayer neighbourhood, and a number of people were also injured.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the death toll higher at 18, and said more than 50 people were injured.
It said the surface-to-surface missile destroyed several houses in the area.
Aleppo, Syria's largest city and once its commercial centre, has been contested since July 2012.
