6:03 am on 29 November 2012

At least 34 people were killed by two car bombs in the Syrian capital Damascus.

The Syrian Interior Ministry says another 83 people were seriously wounded.

The explosions occurred about 6am on Wednesday in a district which is home to many from Syria's Druze minority.

The SANA news agency says there was serious damage to shops and cars.

Bombings are occurring in Damascus with increasing regularity.

State media also said a bomb detonated in the southern town of Bosra al-Sham, near Deraa, where the revolt against President Bashar al-Assad began in March 2011.
