DAMASCUS, Syria — A powerful truck bomb exploded today in a government-held village in central Syria, killing at least 34 civilians and wounding more than 50, the state-run news agency said.

SANA said the explosion went off in Horrah village in the countryside near the central city of Hama. It quoted an unnamed official in the Hama police command as saying that the truck was loaded with about three tons of explosives.
