    A car bomb in central Damascus has killed 53 people and wounded around 200, Syrian television said.

    The device exploded near a busy motorway in the capital, close to the ruling Baath Party offices.

    Syrian state media said this was an attack by “terrorists” battling President Bashar al-Assad.
