Blast shakes Syrian capital

Late night blast in Damascus residential neighbourhood kills one person.


    There are no government buildings located in the area, although an Iranian school is located a few hundred metres from the scene of the blast.

     

    The school, which was unoccupied, was unaffected by the explosion.

     

    Damascus has seen a number of attacks in recent years, including one on the US Embassy in 2006 that left three gunmen and a Syrian guard dead.
