A bomb has ripped through the third floor of the state television building in Damascus, Syrian state-run TV said today.

The report said at least three people were injured in the blast.

The building, which also houses the country's state radio, is located at the Umawiyyeen roundabout in the centre of Damascus.

The Syrian capital has seen a string of suicide attacks and other bombings in the past few months as the country's civil war has escalated.

A pro-government private Syrian TV station, Al-Ikhbariya, showed pictures of employees inspecting damage in the TV building and tending to a wounded colleague.

Syrian state TV remained on air.
