Syria petrol station hit by deadly car bomb


At least nine people have been killed by a car bomb at a petrol station in the Syrian capital, Damascus, say activists.

The bomb reportedly hit the Barzeh al-Balad district, as large numbers of people were queuing for fuel.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights activist group said the death toll from Thursday's attack was likely to rise.
