Suicide car bomb kills at least 15 in Damascus

A suicide car bomb in the main business district brings chaos to Damascus. At least 15 people were killed and another 53 wounded. Rescue workers rushed to remove bodies from the smouldering wreckage. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but state media blamed "terrorists", a term the government uses for opposition fighters. Opposition groups accused the government of carrying out the attack. Syrian insurgents based in the outskirts of Damascus have pushed into areas near the government-held heart of the city, stepping up attacks in recent weeks. More than 70,000 people have been killed in the Syrian conflict, which started with peaceful protests against President Bashar al-Assad that were violently suppressed. An armed struggle ensued, forcing more than a million Syrians to flee abroad, and displacing millions more inside the country.
