An air strike has hit a maternity hospital supported by Save the Children in north-western Syria, killing 2 people and wounding others.

The charity said several babies were hurt when incubators crashed to the floor, a pregnant woman lost a leg and 2 others suffered shrapnel wounds.

It is not clear who carried out the attack. The air strike hit the entrance to the hospital in rural Idlib province.

Save the Children said the hospital was the biggest in the area, carrying out more than 300 deliveries a month.

A statement said that at the time of the bombing, two operations were under way and a woman was in labour.
