BEIRUT (AP) -- Syria's state-run news agency says a suicide attacker has detonated his car in a village in the central province of Hama, causing some deaths.

The agency says Monday's blasts occurred outside a state-run development agency in the village of Ziyara.

The Britain-based activist group Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the suicide attacker targeted an army checkpoint and killed "tens of troops."
