Twin bomb blasts hit Syria’s Homs, cause casualties

BEIRUT – Twin bomb blasts hit the Syrian city of Homs on Sunday, wounding a large number of people with reports of others killed, a group monitoring the country’s civil war said.

One of the blasts that struck the same area in the centre of Homs came from an explosive device, and the second was either a suicide attack or another planted bomb, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. Pro-Damascus al-Ikhbariya television said the explosions took place in the Zahra district, and showed footage of damaged shop fronts, debris littering the streets, wounded people and charred or burning cars.
