45 killed, 110 injured in blasts near Syria shrine

At least 45 people were killed and 110 wounded on Sunday by a car bomb and two suicide bombers in the Sayeda Zeinab district of Damascus, where Syria’s holiest Shi’ite shrine is located, the interior ministry said.

State television showed footage of burning buildings and wrecked cars in the neighbourhood.

Syrian state news agency SANA, quoting an interior ministry source, said a group of militants had detonated a car bomb near a public transport garage in the neighborhood’s Koua Sudan area. Two suicide bombers then blew themselves up nearby as people were being rescued.
