Number Of Deaths Rise To 44 In Bomb Attack In Syria: State Media

A massive bomb attack at a Kurdish city in Syria has been reported today.

DAMASCUS: The number of deaths in a massive bomb attack today in the Kurdish-majority city of Qamishli in northeastern Syria has risen to 44, state media said.

The official SANA news agency said at least 140 people were also injured when a suicide bomber in a vehicle blew himself up in a western neighbourhood of the city.

The attack was initially described as a double bombing, but sources in the city and the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights subsequently said the initial attack had caused a gas tank to detonate.

The area targeted houses several ministries of the local autonomous Kurdish administration.
