Damascus: At least 20 people were killed and scores of others wounded Monday when a booby-trapped car exploded in Syria`s northwestern province of Idlib, Xinhua quoted local Sham FM radio and activists as saying.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said more than 20 people were killed in the blast while the Sham FM radio reported the blast in a booby-trapped car in the town of Darkousk in Idlib without giving the death toll.

No further details were released.

The deadly explosion came after two suicide bombers detonated their explosive-laden cars near the state TV headquarters in the capital Damascus Sunday evening.
