Earlier today in Syria, as buses were escorting civilians out of besieged areas, a car bomb exploded killing over 100 people.

During the transition of the civilians, the buses were stopped and that is when the incident occurred.

Per Fox News:

More than 100 people were killed when a car bomb exploded near buses evacuating Syrians outside of Aleppo on Saturday, rescue services say.

The explosion Saturday hit an evacuation point south of Aleppo city where dozens of buses have been parked for over 30 hours as a much criticized population transfer deal stalled.

There seems to be no information about who caused the explosion:

A senior rebel leader said 20 fighters who guarded the buses were killed as well as dozens of passengers. He spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. Yasser Abdellatif, a member of the powerful Ahrar al-Sham group which negotiated the deal, said at least 30 rebels were killed in the explosion.

Prior to the blast, Syrian Red Crescent teams had distributed meals to the restless evacuees, stuck in limbo after having left their homes over 30 hours earlier. Many were already voicing their dissatisfaction with the wait.
