Car bombing kills 4 in Syrian capital

World Bulletin / News Desk

At least four people were killed in a car bombing in Syrian capital Damascus on Sunday, according to local medical sources.

A bomber detonated his explosives-laden vehicle in Tahrir square in central Damascus, killing four and injuring seven others, the sources said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to media.

The attack occurred as security forces were chasing three suspected car bombers trying to enter the capital, according to the official SANA news agency.

The agency said the two other car-bombs had been destroyed.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.

Syria has been locked in civil war since March 2011, when the Bashar al-Assad regime cracked down on pro-democracy protests with unexpected ferocity.

According to UN's special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, around 400,000 people have died in the conflict while half the population has been driven from their homes.
