At least 19 people were shot dead in Syria on Thursday by troops loyal to President Bashar Assad, Al Jazeera reported according to activists in Syria, after two suicide bombers killed more than 55 people and wounded hundreds in Damascus.

The rush hour explosions hit a district that houses a well-known military intelligence complex involved in Assad's crackdown on a 14-month-old uprising. State media said earlier the majority of the casualties were civilians.
