BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian hospital officials say twin car bombings in a Damascus suburb have killed at least 10 people.

The state SANA news agency says two cars packed with explosives detonated early on Wednesday morning in the capital's eastern Jaramana suburb, which is populated by mostly Christians and Druse.

SANA says dozens of critically wounded victims were taken to hospitals.

Two hospital officials say at least 10 people were killed. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to the media.
