Bombs hit square in Syrian capital, 2 killed
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 11 - 06 - 2013

Two explosions hit a central Damascus square Tuesday, killing two people, activists and the state media reported. State TV said the blasts were caused by suicide bombers, while activists said they were bombs planted there in advance.
The state-TV Ikhbariya TV station showed footage of broken shop facades and mangled cars in the central Marjeh Square as ambulance workers were seen carrying the wounded on stretchers. The bustling square was scene to previous attacks earlier this year, according to AP.
Syrian state TV said two civilians were killed because of the explosions caused by two suicide bombers. It said another 26 were wounded.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which has a network of activists on the ground in Syria, confirmed the death toll but said the explosions were caused by bombs laden in the area.
