    A pair of suicide bombers in Syria killed eight and wounded close to 100 Monday in attacks that may have been directed against a nearby military installation. The explosions in the city of Idlib shattered windows and caused other damage, both official Syrian media and opposition forces reported. Little is known so far about the bombers or what their target was. Monday saw other violence in the embattled nation, including an attack by gunmen against a bank and law enforcement in the capital city in which four police officers suffered injuries. Syrian media said “armed terrorists,” a term often used to describe opposition forces, were responsible for both attacks.
