Syria conflict: Dozens die in explosions in Homs.
At least 37 people have been killed in explosions in the Syrian city of Homs. The attacks, which involved at least one car bomb, also injured dozens.
Earlier, at least 14 people were killed and more than 80 wounded in a mortar attack on a technical institute in central Damascus.
The attacks come, a day after President Bashar al-Assad registered to stand for re-election, defying calls to step down as a way of ending Syria's civil war.
There are conflicting details about the number of deaths in the government-held, predominantly Alawite district of Zahra, east of the Old City in Homs.
