Four blasts ripped through a government-controlled district close to a military officers' club in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo, killing at least 40 people and wounding more than 90 on Wednesday, opposition activists said.

The attacks within minutes of each other struck the main Saadallah al-Jabiri Square and a fifth bomb exploded a few hundred meters away, state television said, on the fringes of the Old City where rebels and forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad have been fighting.

A state television reporter said  that Five minutes after the first explosion a second bomb exploded and a third exploded ten minutes after that,There was a fourth car bomb which exploded before engineering units could defuse it."
