A series of giant explosions ripped through a weapons depot killing at least 40 and injuring scores after it came under rocket fire by Syrian rebels.
Video of the blast was posted on YouTube by activists opposing the Bashar al Assad regime. It showed a giant fireball blasting hundreds of feet into the air followed by a number of smaller explosions.
The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said: "At least 22 people, including civilians, were killed and dozens wounded, some seriously, when an ammunitions depot blew up in the pro-regime Wadi al Zahab district after rocket fire, most probably by rebels."
