A roadside blast in Syria's northwestern Idlib province killed six workers and injured 16 on Sunday, SANA state news agency reported, blaming the attack on an "armed terrorist group."

"Six workers were killed and 16 others injured by a blast set off by an armed terrorist group on a road in Idlib, which exploded as a minibus passed by," SANA reported.

The attack happened on the side of the road linking Ariha and Al-Mastuma in Idlib, near the Turkish border, according to SANA.

The agency reported that security services dismantled two other explosive devices on a road in Jabal al-Zawai, also in Idlib.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said in a statement that five people were killed in the roadside blast near Ariha, but made no comment as to the identity of the attackers.
