Syrian regime airstrikes on ISIS stronghold Raqqa killed at least 95 people as a government delegation prepared for talks with key ally Russia Wednesday on relaunching peace negotiations.The bombing Tuesday was the deadliest by President Bashar Assad's air force in Raqqa since ISIS fighters seized control of the city last year and declared it their capital. Raqqa was the first provincial capital to fall from regime control, and it was later overrun by ISIS which has used it as the capital of its self-proclaimed "caliphate" straddling Syria and neighboring Iraq.The multi-sided Syrian conflict has killed more than 195,000 people and forced millions from their homes since it began three and a half years ago as an uprising against Assad's regime. A Syrian regime delegation headed by Foreign Minister Walid Moallem was due to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin at his Black Sea retreat of Sochi Wednesday.
