At least 46 people have been killed in a double car bombing in the Syrian city of Homs, a monitoring group has said.
Most of the dead appear to be civilians, according to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Syrian state media gave a toll of at least 25, showing images of a smoky street littered with wrecked vehicles.
Homs was one of the early centres of the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, which began in 2011, but it is now back in government hands.
The attacks happened in a predominantly Alawite district, the minority sect to which President Assad belongs. The area has been repeatedly targeted.
The Observatory warned that with a large number of people injured, the death toll was likely to rise.
