The Foreign Office has condemned the military air strike on a bakery near Hama that killed dozens of people:
I am appalled by emerging reports of the brutal shelling and killing of civilians in Halfaya in Hama province yesterday.
Opposition groups report that over 60 people were killed while queuing for bread with more believed to be buried in the rubble.
If verified, this would be the most recent in a long line of human rights violations and abuses committed by the Syrian regime, which continues to wage a remorseless war against its own people.
The attack highlights the urgent need for a political transition and end to the violence, and for those responsible for these appalling acts to be held to account.
