Monitor: Islamic State blows up empty prison complex in Syria’s Palmyra

Islamic State blew up a major prison complex in the central Syrian city of Palmyra on Saturday, according to a group monitoring the war. The prison was empty at the time of the detonation, said Rami Abdulrahman from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The sprawling complex is not located among the city’s ancient ruins. Islamic State captured the city, also known as Tadmur, from government forces earlier this month.
