Bombs go off by Palace of Justice in Damascus: state TV
DAMASCUS: Two bombs exploded outside the Palace of Justice in central Damascus on Thursday, state television reported, without giving any immediate word on any casualties.
“Two bombs exploded in the car park of the Palace of Justice in the Al-Marjeh district of Damascus. A third did not explode,” the television said, describing the bombings as “terrorist” attacks.
A police source told AFP on condition of anonymity that two magnetic bombs exploded in two judges’ cars in the open-air car park, while a third was in the process of being defused.
State television showed footage of heavy smoke rising from the car park, as fire-fighters attempted to put out the flames.
