At least 13 people have been killed after a military bus was hit by two explosions in central Damascus, Syrian state media say.

The vehicle was targeted in a “terrorist” attack as it passed under a bridge, Sana news agency said.

Video from the scene showed the charred remains of the bus which was completely burnt out.

Although Syria has been embroiled in civil war for a decade, such attacks in the capital are increasingly rare.

The attack happened shortly after dawn as the bus headed under Jisr al-Rais bridge, Sana said.

It said a third explosive device was found at the scene and defused.
