    DAMASCUS: A bomb attack targeting a weapons bazaar in eastern Syria near the Iraqi border killed 30 “terrorists” on Saturday (Sunday in Manila), state television reported. “A big explosion hit a terrorist arms market in Mayadeen, killing 30 terrorists and wounding dozens of others,” the channel said. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights gave a different account, alleging a “bomb planted in the car of an arms dealer” caused a series of blasts, as nearby munitions exploded. “At least eight civilians were killed and 21 others were wounded,” said the Britain-based group, which distributed amateur video showing the aftermath. Just 80 kilometers (50 miles) from the Iraqi border, Mayadeen is controlled by rebel groups.
