BEIRUT: Syria state media reported that at least two suicide bombers struck outside the police headquarters in central Damascus Wednesday, killing at least one person and wounding six.
The state news agency said the two attackers tried to storm the police command center, igniting clashes with guards. The pro-government Al-Ikhbariya TV said the police encircled a third attacker, forcing him to blow himself up.
No one immediately claimed the attack, but al-Qaida, Islamic State and other insurgents have struck government targets in the capital in the past.
A similar attack on a police station in a nearby district last week killed 17 people. That attack was claimed by the Islamic State group.
