A suicide bomber has blown himself up in the centre of the Syrian capital, Damascus, officials and activists say.
State media said troops had foiled an attack by a “terrorist group” in the Rukn al-Din district, where several major security facilities are located.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the bomber appeared to target an army general responsible for logistics.
Mohammed Eid and two of his guards were wounded, while a third guard was killed, the UK-based group added.
