Bombs hit Syrian government Aleppo, many casualties
(Reuters) - Three bombs exploded on a main square in a government controlled central district of Syria's second city Aleppo on Wednesday and Syrian state television said many people had been killed.
Pro-government Al-Ikhbariya TV said the bombs detonated in Saadallah al-Jabari Square in western Aleppo, Syria's largest city which is now split in two with forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad mainly in the west and rebels in the east.
The channel showed footage of four dead men, including one dust-covered body being pulled from the rubble of a collapsed building and loaded onto the back of a pickup truck.
State television said there had been many people killed in what it called "three terrorist explosions", but did not give a number. Ikhbariya earlier said two car bombs had been used in the attack.
