An explosion in the Syrian capital Damascus, that local media said was caused by bomb, is now thought to be due to an exploding tyre.

A Syrian interior minister said 3 people had died, halve previous reports. The blast took place near the al-Sayyida Zeinab shrine for Shia Muslims. There were similarities to an incident last year when a car bomb on a road leading to the same shrine killed at least 17 people.
