BEIRUT (AP) - An activist group says twin explosions in a southern Syrian city have killed and wounded dozens of security troops.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the blasts Saturday in Daraa were caused by two suicide bombers who targeted regime forces in the city.
The group, which relies on a network of activists on the ground, says "dozens" of regime forces were killed and wounded in the near simultaneous explosions.
State-run news agency SANA says the explosions caused multiple casualties and heavy material damage but did not provide further details.
The explosions were followed by clashes between regime forces and rebels fighting to topple President Bashar Assad.
