At Least 14 Killed After 2 Blasts Rock Syrian City
BEIRUT – Syrian state TV says two blasts in the central city of Homs have killed 14 people and wounded 29.
The TV report said Sunday’s blasts struck in the pro-government neighborhood of Zahraa — a frequent target for similar explosions.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the first blast was caused by a vehicle rigged with explosives. It said it was not immediately clear if the second was caused by a car bomb or a suicide attacker wearing an explosive belt.
Homs, once dubbed the capital of the Syrian revolution, has been hit with a wave of explosions in recent months, killing and wounding scores of people.
