BEIRUT: Dozens of people were wounded when a car bomb exploded in the Syrian town of Douma, northeast of the capital Damascus, Saturday, local activists and an activist group based in Britain said.
Video uploaded on the Internet showed the flaming wreckage of an overturned vehicle in front of the blackened pillars of a nearby building, which activists said was located in a popular Douma market.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also reported the bombing, saying dozens of people were killed or wounded. There was no immediate report on Syrian state media of the blast.
