Palestinian refugee camp car bomb kills dozens in Damascus
Sunday 02 September 2012
A car bomb near a Palestinian refugee camp in a suburb of Damascus has killed at least 15 people, according to Syria's state news agency.
SANA said the explosion in the suburb of al-Sbeineh late last night also wounded several people and caused heavy damage to buildings in the area.
It blamed the blast on an "armed terrorist group," the term it uses to describe the rebel Free Syrian Army seeking to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad.
In a separate incident, two bombs went off near the Syrian military's joint chiefs of staff's offices in central Damascus.
The explosions struck the Abu Rumaneh district of the Syrian capital, wounding four people, state TV said.
Government officials say the explosion appeared to target a building under construction near the offices of the military's joint chiefs of staff. The building, which was empty at the time of the blast, is a base for army officers who guard the joint chiefs of staff offices, which are located some 200 yards away.
The officials say the wounded were army officers.
