At least 30 people were killed and over 100 wounded in two synchronised attacks in the Syrian capital Damascus on Saturday targeting Shia pilgrims, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.
A roadside bomb detonated as a bus passed and a suicide bomber blew himself up in the Bab al Saghir area, which houses several Shia mausoleums that draw pilgrims from around the world.
The director general of the capital's Al-Mujtahed hospital said that there were 28 people dead and 45 wounded.
