At least 27 people have been killed and dozens wounded by five bomb explosions in the centre of Syria’s second city, Aleppo, the BBC reports.
Four of the blasts happened in the city’s Saadallah al-Jabari Square, near a military officers’ club and a hotel.
State and pro-government media reported that at least two of the four blasts in Saadallah al-Jabari Square on Wednesday morning were car bombs. The fifth reportedly struck a few hundred metres away, on the edge of the Old City.
Officials said the death toll might rise and the Syrian Observatory cited medical sources as saying that at least 40 people had died.
