An array of explosives, from shells to barrel bombs, fell on Syrian cities in another day of bloodshed Thursday, according to activists fighting to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad.
The Local Coordination Committees accused the government of using "vacuum bombs." CNN cannot independently confirm the claims because the Syrian government has limited access to international journalists. Damascus has not commented on the accusations.
Also known as thermobaric explosives, they are effective at spreading destruction through urban areas, according to military experts. The LCC also repeated claims that the government used cluster bombs.FULL STORY
