Two bombs exploded in a central Damascus square this morning, killing at least 14 people and wounding 31, Syrian state television said, quoting a police source.

It said the bombs were left in bags outside shops in Marjeh Square in the heart of the Syrian capital, which has been struck several times by bomb attacks in the two-year uprising against President Bashar al-Assad.
