Blast in Syria kills seven

  • 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
