Reports of carnage and widespread violence in Syria continue to grow despite the U.N. Security Council’s agreement to boost the number of monitors in the country.
A huge explosion rocked central Damascus on Tuesday, according to the opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The group had no immediate information on possible casualties.
Syria said a bomb was attached to a car and injured the driver. On state-run news agency SANA, the country blamed an “armed terrorist group.” The attack took place in the neighborhood of Merja, SANA said.
