6 killed in Syria bombings


DAMASCUS: Three simultaneous bombings killed at least six civilians in the northeastern Syrian city of Qamishli, the latest attack to target the de-facto capital of the country’s embattled Kurdish minority. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombings, which came after the Islamic State group said it was responsible for the killing of a priest from the city. Two car bombs and an explosives-rigged motorcycle blew up in a busy market and near a school and several churches, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
