The U.N. Security Council voted unanimously to condemn the deadly bombing in Syria that killed at least 130 people and wounded more than 600 others.
The vote was overwhelmingly in favor of a Security Council resolution condemning the attack, which came as President Bashar al-Assad’s forces continued a months-long assault on rebel-held areas of Syria.
