BEIRUT, December 28. /TASS/. Nineteen people have died in explosions that struck the Syrian city of Homs in the morning, Homs province Governor Talal al-Barazi said on Monday.
Twin bomb blasts hit the al-Zahra Square in the center of Homs, 162 kilometers to the south of capital Damascus. Al-Barazi said that a car bomb was detonated first. After rescuers and paramedics arrived to the scene, a suicide bomber set off his explosives.
At least 19 people died in the terrorist attacks, the governor said adding that 40 more people were injured. He said that some people are in critical condition, and the death toll could grow.
