MOSCOW (Reuters) - Six Russian Tu-22M3 long-range bombers hit Islamic State targets in Syria's Deir al-Zor province on Sunday, Russian news agencies cited Russia's Defence Ministry as saying.

The bombers that flew from an airfield in Russia hit "terrorist strongholds" in the valley of the Euphrates river, the agencies reported.
