At least 42 children have been killed in government air strikes and shelling across Syria over the last 36 hours as the government seeks to restore its control of the country. The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says regime forces deployed weapons including barrel bombs, killing 17 children between Friday and Saturday night and a further 25 children between midnight on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
