    Syria's state-run news agency says two blasts in the northwestern city of Idlib have killed at least eight people and caused serious damage, amid appeals by the head of the UN observer mission in the country for both sides to stop fighting.

    SANA said civilians and security officers were among those killed in Monday's bombings.

    State media blamed the attacks on "armed terrorists", a term it uses to describe those trying to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad.
