Iran [2]‘s Fars news agency reported that the blast occurred outside Iran’s culture center building, but claimed the complex did not sustain any damage.

Meanwhile, Syrian TV reported that a car bomb wounded at least three people near a mosque in the capital’s Barzeh neighborhood. The pro-government channel blamed an “armed terror cell” for the blast.

The channel said the explosion also damaged buildings in the area.
