BEIRUT - Sixteen people were killed and more that 25 wounded, including women and children, in a car bomb in Qatana, a town 25 kilometers southwest of Damascus, Lebanon's al-Manar television channel said on Thursday.

Qatana is part of a string of outlying suburbs and towns where Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces have been trying to push back rebels. The attack follows three bombs which exploded at the Interior Ministry on Wednesday evening, killing five.
