Suicide Bombings in Syria Kill More than 30 10/3/12
October 3, 2012
BEIRUT (AP) - It's been a particularly bloody day in Syria's largest city, and the country's violence is again spilling beyond its borders.
State TV says three suicide bombers detonated cars packed with explosives in a government-controlled area of Aleppo, killing at least 34 people. A fourth explosion struck near the edge of Aleppo's Old City, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Aleppo, Syria's largest city, has become a key battleground between regime forces and the rebels, who last week announced a new push to capture the city.
Meanwhile, the mayor of a town in neighboring Turkey says a shell fired from inside Syria landed on a home there, killing at least three people, including a 6-year-old boy.
