Warning - Video contains graphic material What looks like a fighter jet thunders across the skies of nothern Syria. Then... a bomb starts tumbling toward what is said to be the embattled city of Idlib. Seconds later - chaos. Activists say the bombing was carried out by Syria's government - and called it the latest attack on civilians amid an increasingly brutal civil war.

Among the wounded were several children. It was not immediately known how many died or were injured in the attack.

Activists say March was the bloodiest month yet, with more than 6,000 people killed - a third of them civilians.
