BEIRUT (Reuters) - Two suicide bombers attacked a police station in the Syrian capital Damascus on Monday, killing a number of civilians and policemen, state television said, citing the interior ministry.

The pro-Damascus al-Mayadeen TV channel said four militants carried out the attack, killing more than 10 people.

Sate media said earlier that a "terrorist explosion" struck the al-Midan neighborhood in Damascus. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
