Syria conflict: IS claims wave of bombings that kills dozens
At least 40 people have been killed in bombings in mainly government-held areas of Syria, state media report.
Four attacks took place within an hour of each other in Tartous, Homs and in a western suburb of Damascus, with one in Hassakeh, dominated by Kurdish forces.
The deadliest incident was outside Tartous, home to a Russian naval base and in the heartland of President Bashar al-Assad's Alawite sect.
The Islamic State (IS) group said it was behind the attacks.
Rest in peace to those who have lost their lives.
