A car bomb blast in Syria’s Homs city has killed at least four people and wounded 16, according to a monitoring group, which also reported a separate explosion in a suburb of the capital, Damascus, Al-Jazeera reported.

The blast in Homs took place on Tuesday morning in al-Zahra neighbourhood, a goverment-held area, the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Al-Jazeera indicated that Syria’s state-news agency SANA also reported that four people had died in the explosion, but put the number of those wounded at 30.

The Syrian government announced on Sunday that it now controls all of Homs city following a final evacuation deal with the rebels in Waer neighbourhood, Al-Jazeera added.
