A car bomb that rocked the eastern Syrian city of Deir az-Zor on Saturday killed nine people and wounded about 100, the official SANA news agency said. 

It said the bombing was carried out by a suicide bomber and that the dead included guards at a military installation which
is near a housing complex. 

Al Jazeera is unable to independently verify reports of violence, as the Syrian government has placed strict restrictions on reporting.
