At least 33 people were killed when Syrian government warplanes attacked a busy market in a rebel-controlled district of Aleppo on Thursday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The attack came a day after an air strike on a school in Aleppo killed at least 18 people, mainly children. Despite the continuing civil war, Syrian authorities are preparing for a June presidential election in which President Bashar al-Assad is expected to extend his grip on power. Aleppo is divided between Assad's forces and rebels aiming to topple him.
