Syria Car Bomb Near Iranian Office Hurts 3. Press TV Says

A car bombing near the Iranian cultural office in Syria’s capital, Damascus, wounded three Syrians, Iran’s state-run Press TV reported.

The blast in Marjeh Square in old Damascus left one of the Syrians in critical condition, the channel said on its website.

The cultural office wasn’t the target of the attack, Iran’s ambassador to Syria, Mohammad-Reza Raouf Sheibani, was cited as saying by Press TV.
