September 2 , 2015
At least seven people were killed and 40 others wounded in a blast that rocked Syria's northwestern coastal city of Latakia on Wednesday, the state-run TV reported.
The blast was triggered by a booby-trapped vehicle and tore through al-Hamam square in the city of Latakia, Xinhua reported.
Earlier on Tuesday, the state-run media outlets said authorities discovered two explosive-laden vehicles that were set to be detonated in Latakia, the hometown of President Bashar al-Assad and heartland of his Alawite minority, an offshoot of Shiite Islam. Source: IANS
