Syria: Suicide bombing kills 25 in Damascus

ISTANBUL, Turkey (AA): At least 25 people were killed Wednesday by a suicide bombing that targeted a major judicial complex in Damascus, according to Syria’s official SANA news agency.

The bomber blew himself up inside the Palace of Justice in the capital’s central Hamidiyah district, the news agency reported.

According to a local police source, who spoke anonymously due to restrictions on talking to media, the attack also resulted in numerous injuries.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the bombing.

Wednesday’s attack comes exactly six years after the beginning of the Syria conflict, which started in March of 2011 after the Assad regime put down pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity.

Last week, scores of people were killed — mostly Iraqi Shia Muslim pilgrims — in a massive double-bombing in Damascus.
