Wave of Bombings Leaves Dozens Dead in Syria

AFP/Getty Images(ALEPPO, Syria) -- A series of car bombings in northern Syria Wednesday have left at least 31 people dead and dozens more wounded, reports the BBC.

The blasts occurred in Saadallah al-Jabari Square in Aleppo, near a military officers' club and a hotel, according to the BBC.  Aleppo is Syria's second largest city and has recently been a site of contention between government and rebel forces who are battling for its control.

Video of the scene shows considerable structural damage.  The fear now is that some are still trapped under the mountain of rubble.
