At least 30 people have been killed in two attacks in the Syrian city of Homs, officials in the country have said.
Two security compounds a mile apart were attacked by at least six assailants, two of whom detonated explosive vests, according to state TV.
Reports on the number of dead varied, with the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group saying at least 42 security officers were dead.
The victims were collecting permits and escorts a day after their home town was liberated from the extremists.Read the full story ›

Artefacts and monuments from the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra which have been destroyed by the so-called Islamic State militant group may be brought back to life using high-tech reconstructions.
The terrorists, also known as Daesh, have demolished a number of of the iconic monuments in the city which date back thousands of years.
But last year, when the Syrian army briefly retook control of the city, many of the shattered remains were whisked away to safety.
Experts in Italy have now meticulously reconstructed some of them thanks to high-tech laser scanners and 3D printers.
