++PLEASE NOTE THIS VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC MATERIAL++ ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION REUTERS COULD NOT INDEPENDENTLY VERIFY THIS VIDEO, OBTAINED FROM A SOCIAL MEDIA WEBSITE At least 30 civilians are killed when Syrian warplanes bombed a petrol station in a rebellious suburb on the eastern edge of Damascus, two opposition campaigners on the scene said. An activist named Abu Saeed said he had counted at least 30 bodies, which were either burnt or dismembered. Another activist, Abu Fouad, said warplanes had bombarded the area as a consignment of fuel arrived and crowds packed the station. Video footage taken by activists, which could not be independently verified, showed a badly-bleeding man emerging from the rubble with the help of two others. Vehicles were on fire, as charred bodies lay on the ground. One man in the video can be seen running towards the site, saying: "Tens have died." Muleiha is one of a series of Sunni Muslim suburbs ringing the capital that have been at the forefront of the 21-month revolt against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad, who belongs to the Shi'ite-derived Alawite minority sect. Government forces control the centre of Damascus and have been pounding the suburbs from the air.
