Twin suicide bombs outside a school in the Syrian government-controlled city of Homs killed at least 45 people, including 41 children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the war.

Footage on Syria's state news website SANA showed young children in blue school uniforms running away from a blast scene. Blood and body parts lay on the road and cars burned.

An explosive-laden vehicle exploded in front of New Akrama School and, in the second incident, a suicide bomber blew himself up in front of Akrama al-Makhzoumi School.

The bomb attacks occurred as students were leaving school, said SANA.

No one has claimed responsibility for the deadly attacks so far, said the agency.

Syria has been gripped by civil war since March, 2011.

A recent UN report said more than 191,000 people were believed to have been killed in the country.
