Double Car Bombings in Damascus Kill At Least 30
The explosions in Syria's capital claimed the lives of civilians and soldiers, according to Syrian state television.
Beirut - (Reuters) - Two booby-trapped cars blew up at security sites in Damascus on Friday, killing a number of civilians and soldiers, state television said, in the worst violence to hit Syria's capital during nine months of unrest against President Bashar al-Assad.
Al Manar, a television news channel owned by Lebanese Shi'ite Muslim militant movement Hezbollah, a major ally of Assad, put the number of dead from the blasts at 30 with 55 wounded and said most of the casualties were civilians. Al Manar cited information from its own correspondents at the scene.
