BEIRUT (AP) - Syrian activists say government airstrikes on a rebel-held city have killed at least 12 people, including five children.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the air raids - seven strikes in total - hit the northeastern city of Raqqa on Saturday. It says four women were among the 12 people killed and that dozens of people were wounded.

Rebels captured Raqqa, the capital of the province of the same name, in March. It's the only major urban center to fall entirely under opposition control since the Syrian conflict began in March 2011.
