Aftermath of twin bombs at Aleppo University

Via the The Telegraph:

Both Bashar al-Assad's government and rebels blamed each other for the blasts at the University of Aleppo that demolished the front of a six-storey building belonging to the architecture department.

Mohammed Wahid Akkad, the governor of Aleppo, Syria's most populous city, said at least 80 people were killed and 160 injured. Most of the dead were students. The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed more than 80 dead after receiving reports from doctors and students, but said the death toll could rise. It said there were at least 150 injured, some critically.
