More than a dozen killed in deadly blast in Damascus


A suspected double suicide attack in the Syrian capital Damascus has left at least 14 people dead and more than 30 others wounded.

One report said a car bomb exploded close to a police station in the central Marjeh Square, while the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the other device went off inside the building.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Some eyewitnesses condemned those behind the bombing. “These people aren’t human beings, they are not Syrian people, they have no conscience. May God take revenge on them,” said one man.

A bomb attack in the same square six weeks ago killed 13 people. Since then, government forces have retaken rebel-held areas to the east of the capital and driven rebels from their stronghold in the town of Qusair.
