No information on Russian casualties in Syria -RIA cites embassy

MOSCOW, April 7 (Reuters) - Russia’s embassy in Damascus said on Friday it has no information yet on whether Russian citizens were hurt as a result of U.S. missile strikes on a Syrian airbase, the RIA news agency reported.

The embassy was looking into the issue, the agency added.

The United States fired dozens of cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase on Friday from which it said a deadly chemical weapons attack was launched this week.
