State TV reports 2 explosions in Homs province

Posted:

BEIRUT (AP) -- Syrian state TV is reporting that two explosions in a village in the central province of Homs have killed and wounded several people.

The channel says the first blast in the village of Mukharam al-Fawkani was a car bomb and the second was a suicide attacker wearing an explosive belt. The report gave no breakdown of the casualties from the blasts.

The Islamic State group had claimed responsibility for similar attacks in Homs province in recent months that killed scores of people.

The violence came as the northern city of Aleppo witnessed relative calm as U.S. officials announced an agreement had been reached with Russia to extend Syria's latest fragile cease-fire to the deeply contested northern city.

The Syrian military said the truce, which began at 12:01 a.m. Thursday (5 p.m. Wednesday EDT) would last only 48 hours.
