WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC CONTENT Blood, rubble, and shattered glass litter the streets of Damascus on Tuesday, after two bombs exploded in the Syrian capital killing 14 people, state media reported. Syrian TV said the bombs exploded close to a police post in Marjeh Square, in the heart of the city, while the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said one bomb was detonated by a suicide attacker inside the police station. The Observatory put the death toll at 15 and said most of the casualties were police officers. Damascus has been rocked several times by bombings during the two-year-old uprising against President Bashar al-Assad. A bombing in the same square six weeks ago killed 13 people.
