A car bomb which detonated near the ruling Baath Party headquarters in central Damascus has killed more than 30 people.
Most of the victims in the Syrian capital are thought to have been civilians - including children from a nearby school - though the death toll included members of the security forces.
A further 70 people are said to have been wounded.
Vehicles up to 300 metres away were damaged by the blast in Mazraa district.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad blamed the attack on what he called terrorists who are trying to overthrow the government.
At least 31 people have been killed in a massive car bomb blast that's hit the Syrian capital Damascus, with the explosion happening on a square where pro-government rallies are usually staged.
