U.S. review finds attack in Syria was legal, may have killed one civilian | Reuters

WASHINGTON A U.S. military investigation has concluded that an air strike near Aleppo, Syria, that was condemned by some rights groups was in fact a legal and valid attack against an al Qaeda meeting that may have killed one civilian, a military official said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based war monitor, had said at least 42 people were killed and dozens wounded in the March 16 attack in the village of Al-Jina, Syria.
