AMMAN - Islamic State suicide bombers killed at least ten people and injured dozens in two coordinated attacks on Tuesday in the heart of the northeastern Syrian city of Hasaka, a monitor and a resident said.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least three bombers targeted a key Syrian army security compound in the heart of the government-held portion of the city while a bomber blew himself up in the Kurdish portion of the city at a police station run by the Kurdish Peoples Protection Units (YPG).

The ethnically-mixed city is divided into separate zones run by the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad and a Kurdish administration with a well-organized militia.
