Nine dead in Damascus car bomb amid rebel push

At least nine people were killed when a car bomb exploded in the Syrian capital, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Friday amid reports of furious combat raging around a major airport and a military airbase in the north of the country. 

Syrian government forces walk through the old souk in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo on January 3, 2012, after they allegedly recaptured the area from opposition forces. At least nine people were killed when a car bomb exploded in the Syrian capital Damascus, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said early Friday.

Many people were seriously wounded in the car-bomb attack in a northern Damascus neighbourhood, and the death toll may climb, the group's director Rami Abdel Rahmane told AFP.
