Bombs force exodus from Syrian tourist town

As many as 90 per cent of Aazaz residents leave during three days of non-stop bombardment.

    An estimated 90 per cent of the residents of Aazaz town, in northern Aleppo province, have fled as a result of three days of non-stop bombardment by government forces.

    The once-bustling northern town, now deserted and in ruins, was formerly a trendy destination for shoppers and local tourists.
