A car bomb hit Syria’s second city Aleppo on Sunday, a day after blasts killed 27 in Damascus, and security forces arrested and beat activists at a rare anti-government protest in the capital.
At least three people were killed and 25 wounded in the blast, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said shortly after the explosion.
The British-based Observatory, which has a network of activists around Syria, said the bomb went off behind a security office.
State news channel Syria TV said the “terrorist” explosion had been between two residential buildings in the al-Suleimaniya district of Aleppo, behind a post office building.
