Syria petrol station hit by deadly car bomb

At least nine people have been killed by a car bomb at a petrol station in the Syrian capital, Damascus, say activists.

The bomb reportedly hit the Barzeh al-Balad district, as large numbers of people were queuing for fuel.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights activist group said the death toll from Thursday's attack was likely to rise.

Jon Donnison reports.
