A Syrian rights group says two explosions killed at least 52 people Tuesday at the University of Aleppo, in Syria’s largest city.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told VOA there has been no claim of responsibility for the blasts and that the death toll is expected to rise.
Syrian state television described the explosions as a “terrorist attack,” but did not give further details or specify the number of victims.
The cause of the explosions was not clear but the government and opposition activists blamed each other.
