Syria bomb possibly planted inside military complex -minister

BEIRUT, Sept 26 (Reuters) - One of the bombs which struck the Syrian capital Damascus on Wednesday may have been planted inside a military complex, Information Minister Omran Zoabi told state television.

Video footage and pictures downloaded by activists showed flames engulfing the upper floors a Defence Ministry building by the Umayyad Square in central Damascus. Zoabi said the explosions caused only material damage.
