On 6th anniversary of Syrian revolution, suicide attack kills dozens at Damascus court complex

The Palace of Justice is next to the Damascus’ historic Souk al-Hamidiyeh market

BBC – Dozens of people have been killed or injured in a suicide bomb attack at the main court complex in the Syrian capital Damascus, state media report.

State TV said a militant had blown himself up inside the Palace of Justice in the central Hamidiyeh district.

A local police source told a Sana news agency journalist that preliminary reports indicated 25 people had died.

It comes on the sixth anniversary of the start of the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad.

What began as an Arab Spring uprising against an autocratic ruler has mushroomed into a brutal proxy war that has drawn in regional and world powers.

Activists say more than 320,000 people have been killed and 11 million displaced.
