At least 38 dead in string of bombings across Syria

DAMASCUS, Syria — At least 38 people have died in a string of bombings across Syria.

State news agency SANA reports that twin blasts at the entrance to coastal city of Tartus Monday morning killed at least 30 people.

The agency also reported blasts in the central city of Homs, the suburbs of the capital Damascus, and the northeastern city of Hasakeh.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group, which maintains a network of contacts inside the country, put the toll at 47 dead. Conflicting casualty figures are common in the Syria war.
