Car Bomb Outside Syrian Mosque Kills Dozens

TEXT SIZE - +
Syrian activists say a car bomb at a mosque in a southern village has killed 32 people.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, says the blast in the village of Yadouda also wounded dozens more.

State-run TV confirmed that a car bomb went off outside a mosque in Yadouda, saying it killed at least three people.

News reports say the car bomb exploded as worshipers were leaving the mosque after attending Friday prayers.

Such attacks on mosques are not uncommon in Syria and the government and opposition have blamed each other for blasts in the past.

More than 136,000 people have been killed in Syria's brutal war since March 2011, and millions more have fled their homes.
