Car bomb kills at least 7 in central Syria

BEIRUT - A car bomb exploded in a pro-government neighborhood in the central Syrian city of Homs on Thursday, killing at least seven people, state media and activists said.

 

The Syrian government took full control of Homs last month after rebels withdrew from their strongholds in the Old City as part of a negotiated evacuation deal following a nearly two-year siege by the military. That agreement has largely restored a sense of calm and order to the city, although car bombs still occasionally target government areas. (AP)
