AMMAN - A car bomb exploded on Tuesday in a Sunni Muslim district of the Syrian capital Damascus, killing and wounding dozens of people, opposition activists said.

They said the attack occurred hours after a bombing in a neighborhood populated by members of President Bashar Assad's minority Alawite sect. That bombing killed at least 10 people, according to state media.

The second bomb, placed in a parked taxi, went off near a mosque in the southern working class neighborhood of al-Qadam. Buildings were damaged and bodies were buried under debris that filled streets in the area, the activists told Reuters.
