15 killed in twin bombings in Syria

Damascus, Jan 26 (IANS) At least 15 people were killed and several others injured on Tuesday in two explosions that rocked Syria’s central city of Homs.

A booby-trapped car-bomb ripped through a pro-government district of Syria’s central city of Homs, followed by another explosion carried out by a suicide bomber, Xinhua reported.

The bombings targeted the al-Zahra neighbourhood inhabited by the Alwaite minority to whom the ruling elite in Syria belongs.

The neighbourhood, along with other districts of Homs loyal to the government, has suffered from repeated suicide bombings as well as rocket and mortar fire from rebels entrenched in Homs, Syria’s third largest city.
