Five people have been killed in Syria after two mortar shells exploded near
the parliament building in central Damascus, state-run media have reported.
The SANA news agency said the mortars struck some 320ft from the parliament
in the Salihiya area of the Syrian capital on Monday morning.
No-one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack but Syrian rebels
often fire mortar shells into government-controlled areas of Damascus.
