Car Bomb Kills Dozens in Syria

At least 43 people have been reported killed after a car bomb struck Syria’s northwestern city of Azaz, according to a monitoring group. Dozens were also wounded in Saturday’s attack, which took place near a busy market and in front of a courthouse in the militant-held town along Turkey’s border, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. Rami Abdurrahman, the head of the observatory, said those killed included six fighters. He said the explosion was caused by a rigged water or fuel tanker, which explains the large blast and high death toll, Aljazeera reported. Witnesses said there were many unidentified bodies because of the strength of the explosion. Other activist groups put the death toll at 50, adding search-and-rescue operations continued for at least two hours after the blast. The observatory said the explosion took place near the local court operated by militant groups. There was no immediate claim for the attack.
