Activists: Car bombing in northwestern Syrian town kills at least 12; dozens wounded

Syrian activist groups say a car bombing in a rebel-held northwestern town has killed at least 12 people.

Two groups say the bombing took place on Monday at a market in the town of Darkoush in Idlib province and also wounded dozens.

The groups, which rely on a network of activists on the ground, differ on the number of those killed. That is often the case in the aftermath of big bombings.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says 20 people died while the Local Coordination Committees says at least 12 were killed.

Car bombs are becoming more common in Syria's civil war, now in its third year. The conflict has killed more than 100,000 people.

Two car bombs exploded near the state TV building in Damascus on Sunday.
