DAMASCUS, Syria — Syria's state-run news agency says seven people have been killed and 62 wounded in a powerful car bomb explosion near Damascus.

SANA says the car bomb exploded Thursday in the suburb of Jaramana, just few miles southeast of Damascus.

Jaramana is an overwhelmingly pro-regime area.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an anti-government activist organization, has confirmed the explosion and the death toll. It says the blast caused heavy material damage and started a fire.
