(AP) Syria's state media and activists say a suicide truck bomb attack on a government checkpoint on the edge of the central city of Hama has left 30 dead.


The state news agency SANA said Syrian rebels drove the truck laden with over a ton of explosives into the post at the eastern entrance of the city on Sunday.


SANA says the explosion appeared to have set ablaze a gasoline truck nearby, increasing the damage and casualties.


The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the al-Qaida-linked Jabhat al-Nusra, or al-Nusra Front, had carried out the attack.
