57 dead in US-led air strikes on IS prison

According to War monitor the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has said 57 people have been killed in an air strike which is believed to have been carried out by the US-led coalition in an eastern Syrian town controlled by Isis.

It also said the air strike took place on Monday at dawn, hitting a building in the town of al-Mayadeen that was being used to house dissenters against IS rule.

Mayadeen lies in the Euphrates Valley some 45 kilometres (28 miles) southeast of the provincial capital of Deir Ezzor. The Britain-based Observatory said that according to its sources IS had paraded the bodies of the dead in the streets of the town. Most of Deir Ezzor province is controlled by the jihadists and it has been the target of air strikes by both the coalition and the Syrian army and its Russian ally.
