Lebanon TV: 16 killed in car bomb southwest of Damascus

Dec. 13, 2012 11:40 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 13, 2012 11:40 A.M.)
BEIRUT (Reuters) -- Sixteen people were killed and more that 25 wounded, including women and children, in a car bomb in Qatana, a town 15 miles southwest of Damascus, Lebanon's al-Manar television channel said Thursday.

Qatana is part of a string of outlying suburbs and towns where President Bashar Assad's forces have been trying to push back rebels. The attack follows three bombs which exploded at the Interior Ministry on Wednesday evening, killing five.
