But while the whole world has its focus on London, a US-led coalition air strike killed around 30 Syrian civilians in Raqqa the same day.

The air strike was one of the 19 conducted against Islamic State facilities in and around Raqqa.

US warplanes hit a school in Mansoura, a small village in Raqqa. They didn’t take note that civilians had taken refuge in the school.
