Members of the Syrian opposition say that at least 110 people were either killed or injured Thursday when government forces bombarded a gas station in the northern village of Ain Issa, setting off a deadly explosion. The town is located about 25 miles from the Turkish border, where rebels said they had taken over a border crossing on Wednesday. Reports of the attack came "on the heels of a new report from Amnesty International, which said Tuesday that its firsthand investigations in the battered region showed the Syrian army was waging a relentless campaign of air assaults on northern Syria, chiefly killing civilians."
