Up to 70 killed as Syrian ceasefire is shattered

By Alex Jones

A massive explosion in the Syrian city of Hama has reportedly killed up to 70 people.

Several houses in the Masha at-Tayyar district in southern Hama were destroyed by the explosion.

The government and the opposition have both offered opposing accounts of events

State controlled media have said that 16 people have died and the houses destroyed belonged to “armed terrorist groups”.

National media sources also claimed it was these terrorists who caused the explosion by accidentally detonating bombs.

The opposing Syrian National Council believe the attack killed 70 people and was carried out by government shelling or even scud missiles.

The BBC’s Jim Muir said the level of destruction would be difficult to achieve with just ordinary shelling.

Today’s events are sure to deepen worries that the shaky cease-fire negotiated by Kofi Annan, the former UN secretary general, can hold.
