An opposition group says 18 people have been killed kill in a government airstrike on a rebel field hospital in the southern city of Daraa, where Syria's uprising began nearly two years ago.

The Britain-based activist group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said those killed Thursday include eight rebel fighters, three medics, one woman and one young girl.
