At least 50 people have been killed in two strong explosions that ripped through the Syrian capital, Damascus, in the deadliest attack on the capital since the country's uprising began 14 months ago. The explosions heavily damaged a military intelligence building. The blasts happened at about 7:50 am, when employees are usually arriving at work.
