DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria's state-run news agency says two car bombs have killed 25 people in the central city of Homs.

SANA says the blasts that struck a busy street also wounded 107 people.

It said the dead and wounded in Wednesday's explosions included women and children.

SANA said one car was parked near a sweets shop, and that half an hour later another car blew up.

SANA said the wounded included its photographer in Homs, Syria's third-largest city. It said the blasts went off in the Karm el-Loz neighborhood.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the neighborhood is mostly inhabited by members of President Bashar Assad's minority Alawite sect.
