An explosion ripped through a Lebanese bus carrying Shiite pilgrims in a central district of the Syrian capital, killing at least six people and wounded up to 20 Sunday.The cause of the blast was unclear. The bus carried Shiite pilgrims from Lebanon as part of a weekly tour on two religious sites in the Syrian capital, organized by a Lebanese organization called "Admirers of Imam al-Hussein Campaign". Fadi Kheireddine, an organizer in the "Admirers of Imam al-Hussein Campaign" said the bus was not struck by a suicide attack but by an explosive device planted toward the front end of the bus.More than 200,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict started, and around half of the country's population has been displaced.
