At least 40 people have been killed in a rocket attack on an arms dump in Syria, the UK-based group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has said.

Unverified footage showed a huge fireball shooting into the sky over Homs city.

The rebel Free Syrian Army said it carried out the attack, which struck in a government-controlled area.
