Syria's state-run news agency says a suicide bomber has detonated his car in a southern city, causing several casualties.

SANA says the blast occurred in the heart of the city of Deraa on Saturday morning. The city is the birthplace of the nearly year-old uprising against President Bashar al-Assad.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says at least two people were killed and several others wounded in the explosion. The group says the blast occurred near a petrol station in an area known as Deraa al-Balad.

No further details were immediately available.
