Car bomb near Damascus kills six people: monitor

A car bomb on the outskirts of the Sayeda Zeinab district south of Damascus killed at least six people on Monday, a monitoring group said, the third bombing attack in the area this year.

Lebanese group Hezbollah’s Al Manar television reported the blast had occurred at a Syrian army checkpoint.

The death toll was expected to rise because of the number of people with serious injuries, the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
