Coalition air strikes killed 28 in eastern Syria

In Syria, air strikes by the US-led coalition have killed 28 people in an eastern holdout of the Islamic State group on the Iraqi border.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said those killed in the village of Al-Shaafa in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor on Sunday, included 22 members of IS families and six other people not yet identified.

The coalition has been backing a Kurdish-led alliance called the Syrian Democratic Forces fighting the jihadists.
