Syrian activists say a car bomb near a mosque in a town north of Damascus has killed at least 30 people.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an activist group that monitors the crisis, says the explosion struck as worshippers at the al-Sahel mosque in Rankous were leaving after Friday prayers.

Observatory's director Rami Abdul-Rahman says dozens of people were also wounded in the bombing.

No further details were immediately available.
