50 killed in deadly Da­m­as­cus blasts

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

AT least 50 peo­ple have been killed by two pow­er­ful ex­plo­sions that ripped through Da­m­as­cus. Yes­ter­day’s bomb­ings are the dead­li­est at­tack on the Syr­ian cap­i­tal since the coun­try’s up­ris­ing be­gan 14 months ago. There was no im­me­di­ate claim of re­spon­si­bil­ity. The ex­plo­sions heav­ily dam­aged a mil­i­tary in­tel­li­gence build­ing and left blood and hu­man re­mains in the streets. The blasts hap­pened at about 7:50 am, when em­ploy­ees are usu­ally ar­riv­ing at work.
