1 killed in Syria suicide attacks
At least one person was killed and six injured after three suicide bombers blew themselves up with explosive belts in the Syrian capital on Wednesday, the Interior Ministry said.

Two assailants detonated explosive belts outside a police station, an official from the Interior Ministry was quoted as saying by the state news agency SANA.

The official added that the third suicide bomber blew himself up behind the police station, reports said.

So far, no organisation has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

On October 2, the Islamic State terror organisation carried out a similar attack at a police station in al-Midan neighbourhood in central Damascus, which, according to activists, killed 16 people.
