BEIRUT, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Four children were killed while on their way to school on Wednesday in an attack in the Syrian town of Idlib, United Nations children's agency UNICEF said in a statement.

"Today's violence is yet another reminder that the war in Syria has not come to an end. Civilians, among them many children, keep bearing the brunt of a brutal decade-long conflict," the statement added. (Reporting by Maha EL Dahan; Writing by Enas Alashray; Editing by Jon Boyle)
