Group says 54 died in Syria military factory blast

An activist group says a bombing of a military factory in central Syria this week has killed 54 people.


Rami Abdul-Rahman of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said a mini-van packed with explosives blew up near the factory in the village of al-Buraq while employees were waiting for busses after work. Abdul-Rahman said those killed included 11 women and that all were civilians. He says the factory makes military supplies, but not weapons. (AP)
