At least 80 killed at a Syrian University

At least 82 people in Syria have been killed in two explosions, that rocked the university in Aleppo, Syrias biggest city.

Syrias U.N. envoy has told the U.N. Security Council, the bombing has killed 82 students and wounded 162 others.

The cause of the explosions is not clear, but the government and opposition activists have blamed each other.

Some activists in Aleppo said a government attack caused the explosions, while state television has accused terrorists,a term they often use to describe the rebels, of firing two rockets at the school.
