BEIRUT - Twin bomb blasts in a government-controlled neighborhood of Syria's Homs city killed at least eight people and wounded dozens on Saturday, state media and a group monitoring the war said.

One of the bombs detonated close to a hospital in the mainly Alawite neighborhood of al-Zahra in the east of Homs city, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said, adding that the death toll was likely to rise.

Syrian state television described the attack as "two large terrorist explosions". News agency SANA published a photo of two men carrying a woman away from burning wreckage.
