A rigged motorcycle exploded in Syria’s Sweida province, which the government controls, killing three people and injuring seven others on Wednesday night, an official said.

“The situation is stable after the incident, and life is going on as normal,” Amer al-Eshi, the governor of Sweida province in the southwest, told Syrian state TV.

The explosion happened near a hotel in the city’s downtown, according to Al Arabiya's correspondent.

He said security forces would investigate the blast which hit a crowded street, describing it as a “terrorist act” without giving further details.
