Two blasts in the central Syrian city of Homs have killed 14 people and wounded 29 others, according to reports.

Syrian state television said the explosions struck in the pro-government neighbourhood of Zahraa – a frequent target for similar blasts.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the first blast was caused by a vehicle rigged with explosives. It is not immediately clear if the second was caused by a car bomb or a suicide attacker wearing an explosive belt.

Homs, once dubbed the capital of the Syrian revolution, has been hit by a wave of explosions in recent months, killing and wounding scores of people.
