Car bomb hits Syria's second city Aleppo

BEIRUT (Reuters) - A car bomb blew up in a residential area of Syria's second city Aleppo on Sunday, a day after two blasts rocked the capital Damascus, the Syrian television channel al-Ikhbariya said.

Opposition sources said the blast hit an area close to a local security office. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the explosion had killed and injured people in the area but gave no estimate on the number of casualties.
