30 dead in suicide truck bomb attack on checkpoint in central Syrian city

BEIRUT — Syria’s state media and activists say a suicide truck bomb attack on a government checkpoint on the edge of the central city of Hama has left 30 dead.

The state news agency SANA said Syrian rebels drove the truck laden with over a ton of explosives into the post at the eastern entrance of the city today.

SANA says the explosion appeared to have set ablaze a gasoline truck nearby, increasing the damage and casualties.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the al-Qaida-linked Jabhat al-Nusra, or al-Nusra Front, had carried out the attack.
