Child killed, dozens hurt as missile strikes Catholic school in Damascus

Catholic World News - April 15, 2014

One child was killed and 61 people injured when a missile struck a Catholic school in Damascus, Syria, on April 15, the Fides news service reports.

The missile hit the Armenian Catholic school in a historic section of the Syrian Catholic, as students were waiting with their parents of the school doors to open on Tuesday morning. It was not immediately clear which of the parties in Syria's bloody civil war had launched the missile.
