Bomb explodes in suburb south-west of Syrian capital
BEIRUT (AP) - Syria's state news agency says a bomb has gone off in a suburb south-west of the Syrian capital.
Thursday's blast comes as rebels seeking to oust President Bashar Assad have been edging closer to Damascus, his seat of power.
The SANA news agency did not give any casualties or provide further details about the bombing in Qatana suburb. The regime blames such bombings on "terrorists," its shorthand for rebel fighters.
On Wednesday, three bombs collapsed walls of the Interior Ministry buildings in Damascus, killing at least five people.
