Syrian Car Bomb Deaths up to 45

Twin bombings rock Damascus


Two car bombs tore through crowds in a neighborhood in southeastern Damascus on Wednesday, killing at least 45 people in the Syrian capital and injuring more than 120, according to opposition activists.

The neighborhood, Jaramana, is a mixed area of mostly Christian and Druze residents that is generally viewed as supportive of the Syrian government and has been the target of several attacks in recent months.
