BEIRUT - A suicide bomber driving a truck packed with 1.5 tons of explosives killed at least 30 people and wounded dozens in Syria's central city of Hama on Sunday, state media reported.

The man blew himself up inside the vehicle on a busy road on the outskirts of the city, the SANA agency said.

It blamed the attack on "terrorists", the term it uses to describe rebel forces trying to topple President Bashar Assad.

The pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the attack targeted an army checkpoint.
