At least 14 people were killed and dozens wounded in twin bomb blasts Monday in the central Syrian city of Homs, state media reported.


“The preliminary toll in simultaneous terrorist explosions that hit the city’s Zahraa neighborhood is 14 dead and 132 wounded,” state television reported in a news flash.


It said two explosions caused by car bombs and a blast caused by a suicide attacker wearing an explosives-laden belt hit Zahraa’s main square.


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group confirmed the blasts and reported at least 32 dead.
