Syria: Car bomb kills 14 in Homs

A car bomb exploded outside a mosque after the weekly Muslim prayers in a government-controlled district of Homs on Friday, killing 14 people, Syrian state television reported.

The explosion occurred as worshippers streamed out of the Bilal al-Habshi mosque in the neighborhood of Ekrama, about a week days after a similar attack in the city killed 25.

“Fourteen people were killed and dozens wounded in a terrorist bomb in front of the Bilal al Habshi mosque … as people left the mosque,” state television said.

Syrian authorities generally refer to attacks by rebels as “terrorist,” but there was no way to verify who was responsible for the blast. The Lebanese Al-Mayadeen TV station, which has reporters in Syria, said it was a car bomb.

Hundreds of rebel fighters and civilians remain trapped in the ancient quarter of Homs, surrounded by government forces. A deal agreed at peace talks in Geneva this year allowed some civilians to leave. But further negotiations broke down following heavy fighting this week.
