At Least 30 Killed By Car Bomb in Syria

BEIRUT (AP) -- A car bomb exploded near a mosque north of the Syrian capital as worshippers emerged from Friday prayers, killing at least 30 people, activists said.

The blast, which struck outside the al-Sahel mosque in the town of Rankous, also wounded dozens of people, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. It was not clear whether the mosque itself was the target of the attack.
