Syria: Car bomb explodes in Damascus suburb
Syria's state-run news agency says a car bomb has exploded in a suburb of the capital Damascus, wounding at least two people.
It was not immediately clear what the target of Thursday's blast was. SANA says the car bomb detonated in a parking lot near the Imam Sadr Hospital in Sayyida Zainab, a Damascus suburb that is home to a Shiite Muslim shrine popular with Iranian and other Shiite pilgrims.
It says the bomb caused substantial material damage. At least two people were wounded.
Car bombs and suicide bombings have become common in Syria as the 15-month uprising against President Bashar Assad has become increasingly militarized.
