Car bombing in Syria; deaths reported

At least eight people were killed in a car bomb explosion in the Syrian city of Homs on Thursday, an opposition group said.

The explosion happened in an Armenian district, where the majority of people are Christians and Alawites. The opposition group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said at least 15 other people were wounded.

The Syrian conflict began in March 2011. Well over 100,000 people have died and more than 680,000 others have been injured, the United Nations said. At least 6.5 million have been internally displaced and nearly 2.5 million people have fled to other countries.
