A suicide bomber targeted a police bus in central Damascus Friday, killing an estimated 25 people and wounding another 46, most of them civilians. The blasts comes two weeks after twin blasts killed 44 people in the Syrian capital, which the authorities blamed on terrorists targeting security buildings—a claim that the Syrian opposition denied, saying that the government staged the bombings. Activists say security forces attacked anti-regime protests, savagely beating a 10-year-old child senseless before dragging him away – just around the corner from where this blast happened.
