Syria air strike kills 8 as truce broken

At least eight people were killed east of Damascus on Saturday in Syria's first air strike since the declaration of a failed truce for the Muslim Eid al-Adha holiday, a monitoring group said.

"An air strike targeted a building in the town of Irbin, killing at least eight men. This was the first fighter jet air strike since the declaration of an Eid truce" on Friday, the Britain-based watchdog said.

"The truce is dead," Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman said. "We can no longer talk of a truce."
