BEIRUT - A bomb blast killed seven people and injured eight others on a bus in Syria's Homs city on Tuesday, the Homs police chief said.

"Security agencies are constantly chasing sleeper cells," he told state-run Ikhbariya TV. The bomb exploded on a passenger bus in the Akrama neighborhood of the government-held city, state media said earlier.
