SYRIAN EXPLOSION CLAIMS LIVES

Is there any injustice taking place around the world? Iraq ring a bell? if so, how much injustice? Any war crimes? Who is to blame? What can we, the youths do about it? This is the place to dissect the truth, and rant on about politics.

قال شهود عيان الخميس 3-12-2009 إن 6 على الأقل قتلوا في هجوم بقنبلة استهدف حافلة تقل زوارا إيرانيين قرب مزار شيعي في حي السيدة زينب المزدحم في العاصمة السورية دمشق.

وأضاف شاهد لرويترز أن "اشلاء الجثث مازالت متناثرة حول الحافلة، ووقع الانفجار بينما كان سعيد جليلي مسؤول الأمن الإيراني الكبير يزور دمشق للاجتماع مع مسؤولين سوريين.

وانتشرت قوات الامن السورية في المنطقة التي يرتادها كثيرا زوار شيعة من ايران ولبنان وبدأت تحقق في الانفجار.



Syria pilgrim bus blast causes 'dozens of casualties'

An explosion in the Syrian capital Damascus has hit a crowded bus carrying Iranian pilgrims, with at least six deaths and dozens of injuries reported.

The cause of the blast is unclear. It took place at a petrol station near a shrine popular with Shia Muslims.

Such incidents are rare in Syria, but there was one major attack last year.

In September 2008 a car bomb killed 17 people on a road leading to the same site, the al-Sayyida Zeinab shrine. The attack was blamed on Sunni militants.

After the latest explosion, a local correspondent for Iran News Network (Irinn) said the bus had blown up while refuelling.

He said two Iranian nationals, the driver and his assistant, as well as four Syrian workers at the petrol station were killed.

One eyewitness told Reuters news agency: "Body parts are still scattered around the bus."

One report suggested the blast could have been caused by a gas bottle carried by the pilgrims in their luggage.

The al-Sayyida Zeinab shrine, popular with Iranian pilgrims, is dedicated to the granddaughter of the Prophet Muhammad.

Syria bus explosion claims lives



An explosion in the Syrian


Dozens of people have been injured in a bus explosion in the Sayeda Zainab district in central Damascus, Syria, Al Jazeera has confirmed.

The district is a popular Muslim pilgrimage site believed to house the shrine of the daughter of Ali bin Abi-Talib, the fourth caliph and son-in-law of the Prophet Mohammed.

Al-Muataz Billa Hassan, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Damascus, reported that dozens have been killed and many injured in the blast.

Quoting eyewitnesses, Reuters reported that at least six people had been killed.

Security cordon

Witnesses also reported that police and security forces quickly moved to cordon off the area.

The bomb blast occurred as Saeed Jalilee, a top Iranian security official, was visiting Damascus for meetings with Syrian officials.

Iran's state television reported that the bus exploded while it was refuelling at a petrol station, about 500m from the shrine.

Ziad Haidar, a Syrian journalist, told Al Jazeera that there was an explosion on an Iranian bus that was largely empty of passengers.

Sunni fundamentalists are supposedly blamed for the attaks.

It said among those killed were the driver, his assistant and a mechanic.

The Sayeda Zainab mosque has traditionally been a popular destination for Iranian pilgrims.

Rula Amin, Al Jazeera's correspondent in Beirut, said: "Thousands of Iranian pilgrims flood to the area and a lot of Iraqi refugees live in the area, particularly Iraqi Shia."
