AMMAN - Syrian state television said dozens of civilians were wounded when two bombs exploded on Sunday in the central Syrian city of Homs, which lies on a crucial supply route between the capital Damascus and the Mediterranean coast.

Officials said at least 27 people were wounded when a car bomb was detonated in a busy commercial street in the central Karm al Loz neighborhood. Footage of mangled cars and destroyed shops and homes were broadcast on state media.

Another bomb later exploded on the southern edge of the city, wounding ten civilians, according to the state news agency SANA. No one claimed responsibility for the twin bombings.

Residents said the two districts targeted were inhabited mainly by Assad's Alawite minority sect in the city of around one million inhabitants.
