On this day 4 years ago, 41 schoolchildren were killed, more than 74 others wounded when a twin blast rocked Akrama Elementary School in the central Syrian city of Homs.

The first explosion occurred when a booby-trapped car blew up outside the school just when the children were coming out. A few minutes later, a suicide bomber blew up his vest amongst the panicked-stricken crowd.

Rebel groups in Homs claimed responsibility for the deadly massacre, which had left scores dead and injured (mostly children), while the remainder of many victims couldn’t be identified.
