BEIRUT, May 15 (Reuters) - A car belonging to United Nations monitors was damaged by an explosion while they toured the central Syrian town of Khan Sheikhoun on Tuesday but none of the monitors was hurt, a member of the observer team said.

The monitor told Reuters by telephone that the seven-strong team had lost their cars and were trying to organise a safe return to their base. Another monitor and a member of the Free Syrian Army said they were with FSA rebels. (Reporting by Mariam Karouny; Editing by Alison Williams)
