Syria: 2 Blasts Were Suicide Attacks

Two powerful explosions that killed at least eight people in the northwestern Syrian city of Idlib on Monday were carried out by suicide bombers, Syria's state news agency said. The blasts wounded nearly 100 people, The Associated Press reported. The explosions occurred near a military compound, but it is not yet clear what the primary target was, according to AP. Syria's government earlier blamed the bombings on "armed terrorists," a phrase it has used to describe the opposition activists seeking to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad. A United Nations-brokered cease-fire agreement that went into effect April 12 has thus far failed to stop the violence.
