Update: Aleppo Bombing Toll at 52

Hours after the twin bombings at Aleppo University in Syria, both government sources and the opposition say the death toll is at least 52. Earlier in the day there were 15 known fatalities.

Among the dead were refugees who had fled fighting elsewhere in the country and were taking shelter on campus.

The government blamed “terrorist” rebels for the attack, while rebel groups accused the government of carrying out the attack itself.
