BEIRUT - The two explosions targeting Syrian security sites in Damascus came from booby-trapped cars, state television said on Friday.

A witness who spoke to Reuters by telephone said he heard two blasts rock the capital, and a second witness from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported sounds of heavy gunfire after the explosions.

The attack came a day after the first wave of an Arab League monitoring mission arrived in Damascus, which will be checking whether Syria is implementing a peace plan to halt months of unrest after a fierce government crackdown on protests.
