Only material damage after bomb attacks - Syrian minister

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Twin bomb attacks that exploded at a top military building on Wednesday in the Syria capital of Damascus only caused material damage, the Syrian Minister of Information said.

“(The blast from) the terrorist explosions was confined to a material damage,” he said in a phone conversation with Syrian state TV. He said security forces in the area were chasing the “terrorists,” a term the Syrian authorities used to describe those seeking the overthrow of President Bashar al-Assad.
