At least 10 civilians, including two children, were killed Monday in a government barrel bomb attack on a mosque in Syria's northern city of Aleppo, a monitoring group said.

"The faithful were in the middle of the Maghrib (evening) prayers in a mosque in Aleppo's rebel-held district of Ansari," the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, adding that the attack also left some 20 people injured.
