41 children killed in Syria school bombing

A twin bomb attack on a primary school in the government-controlled city of Homs underlines fears about security

Two car bombs exploded in the central Syrian city of Homs on Wednesday afternoon near a school killing 48 people including 41 children.

The explosions took place as children were leaving school at the end of classes on Wednesday in a neighbourhood dominated by minority Alawites, a Shiite offshoot sect that President Bashar al-Assad belongs to.

The first blast was from a car bomb and was detonated in front of the Ekrimah primary school, followed minutes later by a suicide bomber who drove by and detonated his vehicle, state televison reported.
