Activists: Bomb hits security vehicle in Syria
Activists: Bomb hits security vehicle in Syrian capital Damascus
By The Associated Press

BEIRUT (AP) ' Activists say that a bomb has struck a security vehicle in the Syrian capital of Damascus, causing casualties.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committees say Sunday's blast occurred in the upscale neighborhood of Mazzeh.

The LCC said the blast occurred near a military airport in the neighborhood. The Observatory said the explosion caused casualties but did not give a breakdown.

A video posted online by activists showed thick black smoke billowing from what it said was Mazzeh.

Damascus is tightly controlled by regime forces but has been hit by a wave of blasts over recent months that claimed the lives of scores of people. Most of the blasts have targeted Syrian security agencies.
