Syria’s defence minister and his deputy, President Assad’s brother-in-law, have died in a suspected suicide bombing at security headquarters in Damascus, state TV says.

Daoud Rajiha and Assef Shawkat were attending a meeting of senior officials at the time.

The national security chief and interior minister are said to be critically hurt.

The attack comes amid claims of a major rebel offensive on the city.

“The minister of defence was martyred by the terrorist bombing that targeted the national security building,” the TV report said, adding later that Gen Shawkat was dead.

Security sources say the suspected bomber worked as a bodyguard for members of President Bashar al-Assad’s inner circle.
