At least 26 people were killed in aerial attacks with explosive-packed barrel bombs in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo on Monday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.The group said 12 men, 11 children and three women were killed when Syrian army helicopters dropped the controversial weapons on neighbourhoods in the east of the city, once Syria's economic hub. Fighting began in Aleppo in mid-2012, with the city quickly being divided between government control in the west and rebel control in the east.More than 136,000 people have died since the conflict in Syria began with peaceful anti-government protests in March 2011 .
