Car blast hits Syria coastal city Latakia

Amman: A car bomb on Saturday hit the Syrian port city of Latakia with reports of injuries, Hezbollah's Al Manar television station and a monitor said.
The television station flashed that an explosive laden car caused the blast in the Tashreen district of the city that lies in the mountainous heartland of President Bashar Al Assad's Alawites.
It cited casualties but gave no details.
The U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also reported an explosion in the city saying it was likely caused by a car blast and said there were several injuries, with some in critical condition. (Reporting by Suleiman Al-Khalidi; Editing by Toby Chopra)
