Deadly Car Bomb Hits Funeral Of Pro Assad Men In Damascus

Twelve people have been killed by a car bomb at a funeral in the Jaramana suburb of the Syrian capital Damascus, state TV has reported.
Injuries were also reported, with state media saying 48 people were wounded.
The funeral was for two supporters of the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, according to a UK-based opposition group.
Activists estimate over 20,000 people have died since March 2011, with over a million thought to be displaced.
The two who were being buried had reportedly been killed in a bomb attack on Monday.
A taxi had been used to carry the bomb, according to state-run news agency Sana.
The suburb of Jaramana where the blast occurred is predominantly populated by Christians and Druze, who follow an offshoot of Shia Islam.
Pictures of the aftermath of the bombing showed several destroyed vehicles and damage to surrounding buildings.
