An explosion by terrorists targeted the central Maidan district of Damascus on Friday, Syrian state television said, adding that the attack targeted a police bus in central Damascus, causing several deaths.

Initial reports claim a suicide bomber detonated himself in the city’s al-Midian quarter near the Syrian intelligence headquarters. Dozens feared dead.

A resident of the conservative district, where protests against President Bashar Assad have been expanding, said ambulances were seen in the area. The official Syrian news agency SANA said that the explosion took place near Hassan al-Hakeem Basic Education School.

The report came only two weeks after two booby-trapped cars blew up at Syrian security sites in Damascus, with 44 killed and dozens wounded.
