At least two people have been killed as three bomb attacks rock the Syrian capital Damascus. One of the dead was a policeman who tried to stop the bombers. Six others, among them two children, were also injured during the attacks which hit near the main police headquarters.

The Syrian interior ministry said two suicide bombers who tried to storm the police center clashed with guards before detonating their explosives outside the building.

Police surrounded a third attacker behind the building who also blew himself up.

No group has claimed responsibility.

This is the second such incident this month.

Another deadly twin suicide attack by Daesh terrorists hit a police station in the Midan district of the city on October 2.
