AMMAN - At least 40 Syrian soldiers were killed on Saturday when rebels detonated explosives packed beneath an army base in Aleppo, activists and rebels said.

The Islamic Front, an umbrella rebel organization, claimed responsibility for the bombing, though the claim could not be immediately verified.

A video posted on the internet showed a massive blast sending clouds of dust and debris into the air as gunshots rang out in the old Zahrawi area of Aleppo.
