DAMASCUS, Syria: Syria's state-run news agency and witnesses said that a suicide bomber detonated his van packed with explosives in a Damascus suburb on Thursday, wounding 14 people and damaging one of holiest shrines, shrine of Sayyedah Zaynab (AS).

The shrine is the burial place of the revered granddaughter of the prophet Muhammad.

The blast on Thursday shattered shrine windows, knocked down chandeliers and ceiling fans, and cracked mosaic walls inside the religious site, AP reported.

Official Syrian state media said 14 people were injured in Thursday’s explosion, which occurred inside a parking lot.
