28 killed as blasts hit Syrian city

Amman/Beirut, Feb. 10 (Reuters): At least 28 people were killed in two bomb attacks in Syria’s second city Aleppo today while in besieged Homs, Opposition neighbourhoods endured another day of bombardment by President Bashar al-Assad’s troops.

The Aleppo bombings were the worst violence to hit the country’s commercial hub since the uprising against the Assad family’s 42-year dynastic rule began 11 months ago.       

Mangled, bloodied bodies and severed limbs lay on the pavement outside the military and security service buildings that were targeted as shown in live footage on Syrian television which has consistently portrayed the revolt against Assad as the work of foreign-backed “terrorists”.       

In the western city of Homs four people were killed in the Opposition-held neighbourhoods of Baba Amro and Bab Sebaa, the activist Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
