Multiple explosions hit a southern district of Damascus on Sunday, state television and witnesses said, and a monitoring group reported casualties.

The blasts hit al-Tin street in Sayeda Zeinab, state TV said in a newsflash. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said there were four explosions.

Suicide attacks last month claimed by Islamic State in the district where Syria's holiest Shi'ite shrine is located killed 60 people.
