BEIRUT (Reuters) - An air strike killed at least 39 people in a Syrian rebel-held town in the northwest on Saturday when it struck a court house and an adjacent prison, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

The air strike on the town of Maarat al-Numan in Idlib province also wounded a large number of people, many of whom were in critical condition, it said.
