A car bomb in Damascus and has killed at least nine people, according to Syrian activist groups. Dozens were feared dead or wounded after a car bomb exploded at a petrol station in the Syrian capital Damascus, opposition activists said.
The petrol station was packed with people queueing for fuel, a commodity that has become increasingly scarce during the country's 21-month-long civil war, activists said.
The bomb exploded in the Barzeh al-Balad district, whose residents include a mix of majority Sunni Muslims and several other religious and ethnic minorities.
