One dead and several hurt in Damascus bombings

At least one person was killed and several people were wounded by two bomb blasts in the Syrian capital and a southeastern suburb of the city on Wednesday, the SANA state news agency said.

“Terrorists blew up two bombs laden with explosives behind the Palace of Justice in the (central) Qanawat district of Damascus,” said the agency, adding that one person was wounded there.

In the majority Christian and Druze district of Jaramana, southeast of the capital, “one person was killed and five others were injured by two bombs laid by terrorists,” SANA added, using regime terminology for the rebels.
