Two roadside bombs have exploded near a bus carrying troops in the Syrian capital Damascus, killing at least 13 military personnel and wounding three others, state TV reported.

Syrian state TV showed footage of the charred bus in central Damascus early Wednesday, saying the blasts occurred during rush hour when people were heading to work and school.

Two explosive devices went off as the bus was on the Hafez al-Assad bridge, it said, adding a third device was defused by an army engineering unit in what officials said was a “terrorist” blast.
