Syria Ceasefire Has Ceased Its Effectiveness

Now there are bombs going off in Damascus.

Two explosions have hit the Syrian capital, Damascus, killing at least 40 people and wounding 170, officials say.

State TV footage of the blasts showed massive destruction in the al-Qazzaz suburb to the south of Damascus said to house a military intelligence complex.

The TV report said they were "terrorist bombings". Damascus has been the target of several bombs in past months amid continuing anti-government unrest.

The two sides are supposed to observe a ceasefire monitored by UN observers.

But violence has continued unabated, with the restive city of Homs shelled again overnight.
