Nine people were killed when a vehicle carrying a suicide bomber detonated in a military compound’s parking lot Saturday, according to state media. The explosion reportedly also wounded dozens, and damaged nearby cars, trucks, and other structures. According to the report, the vehicle driven by the suicide bomber was carrying more than 2,000 pounds of explosives when it went off, gouging out a crater 2.5 meters deep. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the strike. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an activist group based in Britain, confirmed that the bomb went off near two military buildings in the city of Deir al-Zour. U.N. observers were also reported to be visiting the site of the blast.
