Twin car bombs exploded in Damascus early this morning killing at least 44 people, and critically injuring dozens more, according to Syrian state television.
Two cars packed with explosives detonated in the eastern Jaramana suburb, a district mostly loyal to President Assad.
The bombs went off in a car park located between two commercial buildings within minutes of each other as groups of labourers and employees were arriving to work.
