Air strikes near Syria's Raqqa city kill 14 -Observatory

BEIRUT, March 9 (Reuters) - Air strikes killed 14 civilians, including six children, on Thursday near Islamic State-held Raqqa city in northern Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The Britain-based war monitor said the warplanes were believed to belong to the U.S.-led coalition, which is supporting an alliance of Syrian militias in its campaign against Islamic State's base of operations in Syria.
