Three Car Bombs Rock Aleppo

Twenty-five people are dead and at least 70 wounded after a series of explosions ripped through downtown Aleppo on Wednesday, according to a Syrian official. Syrian media reported “three terrorist explosions” in the city that has been the site of fighting between opposition forces and troops loyal to President Bashar al-Assad. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an activist group based in Britain, reported that most of the victims in the explosion that went off in a central city square were members of the Syrian military.
