Syrian TV says a police bus was attacked by a suicide bomber who detonated explosives on his belt when the bus stopped at a traffic light.  Bloody images of the attack's aftermath were seen on TV.

Friday's attack comes just two weeks after twin explosions at security buildings in Damascus killed 44 people.
