BEIRUT Twin explosions in a government-controlled neighborhood of Syria's Homs city killed at least 16 people and wounded scores more on Saturday, a group monitoring the war said.

The blasts come days after the government extended its control of western city with the implementation of a truce deal in Waer, the last insurgent-held area of Homs. Some fighters and civilians have left Waer, and aid was allowed in.
