AMMAN - An explosion occurred outside the premises of a state-controlled labor union behind a hotel in the Syrian capital Damascus on Sunday, causing casualties, state television said.

The blast, which the television described as "terrorist" - the government's word for rebels fighting to topple President Bashar Assad, took place in the union's parking lot. It gave no more immediate details.

Opposition activists said the explosion was near heavily-guarded army installations in the heart of the capital.
