BEIRUT - Two car bombs exploded on a main square in a government controlled central district of Syria's second city Aleppo on Wednesday morning, a pro-government television channel said.

Al-Ikhbariya TV said the bombs detonated in Saadallah al-Jabari Square in western Aleppo, Syria's largest city which has now been split in two with forces loyal to President Bashar Assad mainly in the west and rebel fighters in the east.



Fighting only with light weaponry, rebels have resorted to bomb attacks in areas still controlled by Assad. Several large protests in support of the president have been held in Saadallah al-Jabari square.

A pro-Assad Lebanese paper reported on Tuesday that Assad was visiting Aleppo to take a first-hand look at the fighting and had ordered 30,000 more troops into the battle. It said Assad would remain in the city.
