Syria: At least 7 killed in Homs mortar attack

A Syrian government official and opposition activists say a mortar attack has killed at least seven people in a government-held district in the embattled central city of Homs.

 

The official, who spoke anonymously in line with regulations, says seven died and 26 were wounded when three mortar rounds hit the neighborhood of Dablan late Monday. Many living in the district fled there to escape fighting elsewhere in the city. (AP)
