At least one person has been killed after a car bomb exploded near a police station in the Syrian capital.
The pro-government broadcaster Ikhbariya TV said the blast hit the Old City quarter of Bab Touma in Damascus.
It came as President Bashar al Assad opened talks with visiting UN peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi, who is trying to broker a truce to start during a Muslim holiday this week.
A security official said the explosion targeted a police station in the neighborhood, which is a popular attraction for shoppers and inhabited mostly by the Christian minority.
