Car bomb in northern Syria kills at least 12

– Syrian activist groups say a car bombing in a rebel-held northwestern town has killed at least 12 people.

Two groups say the bombing took place on Monday at a market in the town of Darkoush in Idlib province and also wounded dozens.

Car bombs are becoming more common in Syria’s civil war, now in its third year. The conflict has killed more than 100,000 people.

Two car bombs exploded near the state TV building in Damascus on Sunday.
