BEIRUT: A car bomb killed at least 10 people in a Syrian government-held area of the central province of Homs on Monday, state media said, the eve of an election expected to be won easily by President Bashar Al-Assad.

Syrian television said the explosion caused major damage in nearby houses.

Over the weekend, at least 50 people were killed by rebel rocket fire into government-controlled areas of Aleppo, a monitoring group said on Monday. An anti-Assad uprising broke out in March 2011 and later escalated into civil war.
