Islamic State claims responsibility for attack in Syria's Homs - statement

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Islamic State said it was responsible for a suicide attack in the Syrian government-controlled city of Homs on Tuesday that killed several people.

The Islamist militant group said in an online statement that one of its fighters had driven a car loaded with explosives to a security checkpoint in the Zahraa neighbourhood and blown himself up, killing at least 30 people.

Syrian state media said the attack had killed 22 people and wounded more than 100.
