'Series of attacks' kills 80 in Douma, Syria

Syrian activists say at least 80 people have died in government air strikes on a marketplace in the rebel-held town of Douma, near Damascus.

Around 200 people were reportedly injured in the attack.

The BBC's Issam Ikirmawi says that a series of bombs hit Douma on Sunday, which partly explains the high number of casualties.

Government forces have been regularly attacking Douma and its surrounding areas in recent months with air strikes and helicopter barrel bombs.
