At least four people have been killed after a roadside bomb ripped through a bus in Syria’s central province of Homs.


The incident took place on Sunday as the bus on the route from the conflict-stricken city of Homs to Masyaf -- which is located 210 km (130 mi) north of the capital Damascus - struck the explosive device, state-run SANA news agency reported.

Four people, among them a woman identified as Rasha Fahad Saeed, were killed and 35 others wounded in the act of terror.

The force of the explosion created a 4- to 5-meter hole in the ground.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011.

Damascus says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving factor behind the unrest and deadly violence while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.

The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country and accuses Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey of arming the opposition.
